The Dayton Audio PS Series drivers do it all: true bass, articulate midrange, and balanced, extended highs.

The Dayton Audio PS Series drivers do it all: true bass, articulate midrange, and balanced, extended highs. An intensive program of design and testing has yielded full-range speakers that feature high sensitivity and smooth response, both on- and off-axis. Although an ideal match for lower powered Class A and Class T designs, the PS180-8 6-1/2" driver's superb resolution and natural sound quality make it a viable option for an even wider variety of applications. The PS Series' audio performance is complemented by the speaker's striking appearance—they look great in dipole and other open back designs, too!
