Goldwood GW-10PC-8 10" Heavy Duty Woofer 8 Ohm
Goldwood GW-10PC-8 10" Heavy Duty Woofer 8 Ohm is rated 4.5366 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great qualitybought these to replace my old blown CERWIN VEGA speakers I don't think they sounded this good when they were new...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely well built for the priceI used this woofer in a 3-way-design rebuild of a mid-century stereo cabinet. Because the cabinet has huge enclosures for the speakers, I made some sealed boxes (approximately 0.5 cu ft volume per PE's suggestion) attached to the back of the front mounting boards.Although the published spec's suggest this is a fairly efficient woofer, it really isn't, as shown on the response curve provided by PE. The acoustic suspension design doesn't help in the efficiency department either. However, I really don't care because I love tight, punchy base and this speaker delivers.Of course, it is necessary to attenuate the mid and high drivers to match the woofer's relatively lower output level. Not being a crossover-design maven, I simply wired L-pads up to both the tweeters and mids to balance things out. Then, I spent a few evenings listening to one of this country's great classical FM stations that has live broadcasts featuring extended male-voice interviews. By tweaking the L-pads I was able to "tune" the system to achieve realistic, balanced tonal output between the three levels of drivers.I would rate this speaker higher. However, we all know that in absolute terms there are better speakers available . . . if you have a big enough wallet to afford them. That said, though, you're not likely to find a better built woofer with a die-cast frame, rigid plastic cones and rubber surrounds at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality replacementJust installed (4) into a pair of ESS Heil AMT3s. I have to say I think they sound better than the originals did back in 1978. They were actually 101/8" so the recess on the baffle had to be enlarged by 1/8". No other installation issues. Very tight bass with this enclosure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth, warm and punchy.Replaced some failing poly woofers with these. A nice, surprising improvement. Smooth response. Nice and warm. My only nit, I don't love the terminals. I prefer the spade type you can solder your wires to. But no matter, I'm impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best bang for the buckI use 4 of these woofers in medium size boxes that are supposed to be in trucks in my garage with a 100 watt amp and the sound is incredible. I was so impressed that I have bought some to replace speakers for other people and they love it too. Thanks parts express, Even your economy shipping is better than most companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic SpeakersI am not a audio technician but it was very easy to change the woofers in my 30 year old Norman 11 Speakers. I removed the old speaker that I blew and replaced with the new Goldwood Heavy duty speakers . The new speakers sound terrific . I Think that I will buy some more of the Goldwood woofers for another pair of speaker that I own.

Goldwood GW-10PC-8 10" Heavy Duty Woofer 8 Ohm

Bought two of these years ago. Never used them. Now planning a home sub. Sealed box wired parallel @ 4ohms to a Mash 300 plate. Corner location. Mid sized carpeted room. Need to add oomph to a budget home theater system. Can anyone recommend box volume?

Asked by: bdockett
A pair of these will work well in about 1 cubic foot sealed and stuffed. You can expect in room response into the upper 30's with this setup.

Good Evening, I'm looking at a pair of the Goldwood GW-10PC-8 to replace in a BIC Venturi F-3 Cabinets. Would this be a good fit? (Classical, Jazz, Blues..Classic Rock-the-neighbors)

I was thinking about using this woofer in a two way build with Dayton Audio DC28F-8 tweeter and Dayton Audio XO2W-2.5K crossover in a 1.94 cubic feet enclosure. How do you think the system will perform?

Asked by: Big_Louis_1971
This would not be the best woofer for use in a two way design. I would recommend adding a small midrange, maybe 4-5" to help cover the upper bass - upper midrange area. This woofer starts rolling off around 1kHz.

Have 20 year old Infinity Reference Six towers, 10" woofers rotted (part 902-4599). No specs on original woofer. Was looking at GW-10PC as replacement. 4 or 8 ohm? Does it matter?

Asked by: InfinityBob
You will have to measure the DC resistance of the voice coil on the original woofer to get the proper impedance. The Goldwoods will work well as replacements, just make sure you put the proper impedance woofer back in the cabinet.
