Pyle PDS442 on dr250

#1 Post by joblow88 » Wed Mar 30, 2022 3:05 pm

Any tought on theses? they are not as loud as the ASD:1001 HF Drivers in the test on ampslab so i would think i might have problem geting the right output but there is also more headroom since they have 250W rms even tho some people say in the comment thay blow at 225. they also lose sesitivaty ad start zigzaging at around 7khz but is it to much that i cannot fix it with a good eq? is there much music produce that go over that? i personaly dont hear any thing pass 15khz.

I agree, I am not impressed with hardly any of the products they slap their logo on

And that's just it, they don't make anything, they just slap their name on cheap junk.

If that driver was $5 and I had a speaker already built that I could try it in, I might be inclined to do so... just for the sake of "why not".

But, it's only $10 less than the recommended driver. Even if it was equal in performance and quality, that's not enough of discount to sway me from using a reputable, brand name, professional quality poduct.

Personally, I get a little kick out of bottom of the barrel products that perform close enough to consider passable. However, they're not typically products I'd ever recommend.

In that spirit, I'd say try it if you wanna try it. But, as you're seeing, no one will recommend it. To achieve the advertized results, it's best to stick with the recommended drivers.

I see ASD1001 are out of stock on PE. If that was a motive to considering the Pyle as an option, Amazon shows ASD's as in stock.
