I was cleaning out an old storage locker and found these two items:
Front view

Back view


This amp is an AB design with 2 channels of 200 watts each or 1 bridged channel of 400 watts.

The next item is 4 of these speakers.
Front view

Back view


Here are the specs for the woofers:

Nominal Impedance .................................................................................................................8 ohms
Frequency Response ...................................................................................................35 Hz-3000 Hz
Free Air Resonance (Fs) Frequency .......................................................................................... 35 Hz
Infinite Baffle Resonance Frequency ......................................................................................... 33 Hz
Piston Area (SD) ................................................................................................................. 0.0214 m2
Power Handling .................................................................................................................. 50 W RMS
Maximum Power........................................................................................................................ 100 W
Flux Density (BL)...........................................................................................................................6.77
DC Voice Coil Resistance (RE, ohms) ..................................................................................6.6 ohms
Voice Coil Inductance (LVC at 1 kHz) .................................................................................... 0.93 mH
Equivalent Air Volume (Vas)................................................................................................ 2.7 ft3/76 l
SPL.......................................................................................................................... 87ð 2 db/1W/1m
Moving Mass (Mms).................................................................................................................18.38 g
Electrical Q Factor (QES)..............................................................................................................0.57
Mechanical Q Factor (QMS)..........................................................................................................3.46
Total Q Factor................................................................................................................................0.49
Equivalent Acoustic Volume (VAS)..............................................................................................76.3 l
Mechanical Suspension Compliance (CMS, UM/N)......................................................1174.63 UM/N
Mechanical Mass of Cone Assembly and Free Air Load..........................................................18.35 g
Mechanical Mass of Cone Assembly Only ...............................................................................16.55 g
Peak-to-Peak (Maximum) Linear Excursion...........................................................................2.35 mm
Cutout....................................................................................................................... 7 Inches/17/8 cm
Depth...................................................................................................................... 31/8 Inches/8.0 cm
Magnet Weight ........................................................................................................................9.97 oz.
Speaker Weight.......................................................................................................................33.3 oz.

My question is this, what do I do with them? Can any of you genius's out there come up with a plan to use them as a subwoofer in a home theater setting?

Thanks for looking and the suggestions!

Dustbin the speakers. Low efficiency and no Xmax.

the peak to peak linear excursion of 2.35 mm is only 1.18mm each way!

that's small for a midrange much less a subwoofer...you'd be much happier with even a budget driver and a good enclosure.

here is about the best bang on the cheap that i am aware of:

Listen. It's All Good.
