SKU: 8MB700FT-NDY-4 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


PRV Audio’s 8MB700FT-NDY-4 Forte Series was specially tailored to give you more power handling and less distortion. The larger voice coil ensures high heat dissipation and the necessary Bl to deliver high sensitivity even on high power with the minimum distortion.

The lower Qts allows for more precise mid-bass. Superior fidelity is achieved through a perfect combination of a non-pressed cone with a smooth frequency response and a surrounding ring specially designed to allow high displacement without increasing the distortion.



  • Nominal Impedance: 4 Ohms
  • Rated AES Power Handling (RMS): 350 Watts
  • Program Power: 700 Watts
  • Sensitivity (1W/1m): 98 dB
  • Voice Coil Diameter: 2.5″ (51 mm)

To get superior fidelity, the special composite cone is built with non-pressed paper for a reduced break-up, delivering a smooth frequency response and a low moving mass, increasing the efficiency of the speaker.


The 8MB700FT-NDY-4 is an extremely efficient 8″ mid-bass from PRV Audio. This driver is perfect for mating to compression drivers due to its wide frequency bandwidth and its high 98 dB sensitivity rating, on a 3-way system (with a suggested 95 Hz, 12 dB/octave high pass filter in place)!

Its powerful optimized neodymium motor is vented to provide excellent cooling.

Product Highlight- RK8MB700FT-NDY

 The large 2.5″ voice coil allows for the high 350-watts power handling and warrants the outstanding cooling system implemented into the motor.

The high sensitivity rating of 98 dB 1W/1M makes it capable of generating a lot of output!

    Q Is the 8MB700FT-NDY-4 speaker 2Ω stable with 250w RMS power? Or...can it handle 500w RMS at 4Ω? My amp offers - RMS Power 2Ω 250 x 4 and RMS Power 4Ω Bridged 500 x 2.
    Asked by Zachary Rosser on April 9, 2020 10:56 am

    These speakers are 4 ohms each. The amp is what needs to be stable at a particular ohm load to handle the ohm load of the speakers, not the other way around. If you use only 1 of these speakers it will be 4 ohms at the amplifier. If you use 2 of these speakers wired in parallel it will be 2 ohms at the amplifier. With that being said you will need about 700w each for these speakers. The amplifier you have will provide 500w to each speaker. If you use 2 8MB700FT-NDY-4 you can put one speaker on each side of the amp bridged to show the amplifier the 4 ohm load it needs to provide that 500w.

    Q Will a set of these work well with a 800.4 2 ohm amplifier?
    Asked by Amalk on March 14, 2020 10:28 pm

    Most likely it will not be the power they need. If you are going to be running 2 of them, in parallel and bridge one side of the amplifier you are only going to be giving them 200w each. Give it a try as it may work well for you. Then if you need more power you can always upgrade the amplifier.

    Q I have 2 of these 8MB700FT-NDY-4 and I'm having trouble setting the crossover settings my DSP 2.8X. Can anyone offer any advice as far as where to start? They sound great but I thought I'd get a little lower punch but I think it has to do with my crossover setting. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Asked by Francisco Alarcon on February 21, 2020 8:45 pm

    We recommend to cross them on the HPF at 95hz for full power handling.

    I took a chance on these speakers after a referral from a friend it is one of the best things I have done if you are looking for loud clear with plenty of bass these are a must buy. And they can handle a ton of power. I would definitely recommend these PRV definitely know what they are doing
