hey there,

Been on the hunt for Volvo Dynaudio drivers and turning into a hoarder. Please help me get rid of some of these. Last time at the junkyard I left the dome mids behind because I have too many. I hate to leave a good Dynaudio behind and hopefully someone can use these. For the record, this is not a good way of making money and would charge more if it were. I cut pvc pipe and screwed it from the backside of the speaker to protect the dome during shipping. They have been tested and all function and sound good.

They do not come with a grill, however I pressed out the middle, cut away some of the metal then covered them in speaker fabric.
"Pyramid GW5BK 5" Steel Waffle Grill Pair with Mounting Hardware" from www.parts-express.com!

For an idea I also used a 4" pvc hard cap to make a pod, had to take a little material off of the mounting flange for it to fit. It is definitely a DIY driver.

They sell on ebay approx 40 bucks each so they are priced to sell. Here's your chance to listen to one if you have ever been wondering.

One set (2) Dynaudio MD140 8ohm speaker out of a Volvo, I have four sets available.

$40 shipped USPS med flat rate box CONUS

They sound good. I have the md100 and mw180 with md140 for the front stage. That’s how I picked up all the md140 chasing down functional drivers. Swapped out the the silver flutes and logic 7 tweeters with the md100 and mw162gt snd was impressed. Then had to find a set of the 8..75”, then dsp and three way. Still looking for more mw180 but they are hard to find.

Are the dimensions the same as the MD 142? I’m looking for a 3.5” or 4” midrange with a max diameter around 100mm.

just measured one, got about 115mm +-1 , these don't have the grill which would account for the other 6mm,

Thank you for measuring them. I’ll double check the opening, off the top of my head it’s a maximum of 100mm, but if I can make them fit I’ll let you know this afternoon.
