Product Details

Goldwood GW-1244 12" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm

Butyl rubber surrounds are superior to foam in two important ways. First, the butyl rubber resists moisture and will not dry rot, prividing years of service. Second, the rubber surround, due to its superior damping characteristics will greatly reduce cone break up and ensure low distortion. These woofers are ideal for replacing and upgrading old, worn out drivers. They all feature a polypropylene cone, vented pole piece, foam gasket, soft poly dust cap, and stamped steel frame.

Goldwood GW-1244 12" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm
Goldwood GW-1244 12" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.6364 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very impressed!I used these to replace my woofers in my custom built mains. I used to have HiVi M8N's for the 80 to 350 range to transition to the my mids. the HiVis were VERY inefficient and I hated all the box resonances they had (although that was my box design's fault most likely).the Goldwoods are installed in an open U baffle 16.5" long with a 13"x13" face. they need EQ'ing to fix the U baffles natural peak at about 170hz and 8db down but once that's dialed in they really come to life and add a deep richness that the HiVi's didnt have, plus zero box ringing so male vocals etc. sound natural and not a "trapped inside a box" sound lolGreat deal from PE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Parts Express to the rescueFaced with replacing my Cerwin Vega D-5 woofers started out as an expensive venture but that turned out inexpensive with a pair of Goldwood GW-1244 woofers.My Cerwin Vega's now sound good as new and the price I paid made it affordable. No need to buy new speakers. Thank you Parts Express !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GreatBuilt these speakers to use with a 16 watt per channel tube amp.Used the 290-366 - Goldwood GW-1244 12" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohmand 279-177 - Vifa BC25SG19-04 1" Textile Dome Shielded Tweeter 4 Ohm,Used a simple 6db crossover, a 027-940 - Jantzen 22uF 400V Crosscap Capacitor, with The 255-220 Jantzen 0.33mH 18 AWG Air Core Inductor. Constructed the two speaker boxes out of one sheet of plywood. The boxes are roughly 24 x 16 x 16 .Great sound for the price, a little bright, but with a low end below 40Hz. Would not hesitate to use the select components in another low power speaker project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Infinity Replacement - no so easyI bought a pair that looked like it would be a perfect replacement for my Infinity Quantum 5s. (The infinitys has been refoamed by a so-called "professional", but I found them to be bottoming out.) After the Goldwoods arrived I opened up the Infinitys to surprisingly find they had two driver coils! One was 4 ohm and one was 2.5 ohms! Anyway I hooked the Goldwoods to the 4 ohm crossover and can say I'm pleased but they didn't have the same bass as the Infinitys - which explains the 2.5 ohm crossover. So I can't blame the Goldwoods - my next move is to pull out the crossover and drive the Goldwood from a seperate amp. I expect that to work much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Buy for the money!!When I opened the box I notice a flaw in the surround and thought that I had made a mistake in buying this woofer but I could tell that the flaw did not hinder the performance of the driver so I continued installing it. I was blown away by the performance! It is much better than I ever expected and out performed the factory JBL driver.

I am looking for a replacement speaker for my Cerwin Vega VS 12`s. Will this product outperform those, and if not could you point me in the direction of a speaker that would. Thank You.

Asked by: Matt33
This woofer would work but might lack in terms of overall sensitivity. Our most recommended woofer as a replacement for this speaker would be our Dayton Series II 12" below.

need a replacement woofer for a klipsch ksw-12 . will these work? or what do you recommend.

Asked by: jerry64
The best option for that subwoofer would actually be the Dayton Classic 12" subwoofer which you can see below.

This question exposes my ignorance: The 12" woofer in my old UK Wharfedale Melton has died. Can I replace it with any reasonable quality woofer (eg. Goldwood GW-1244 12") or must I consider the tweeter and crossover specs (which I can't find)?

Asked by: JohnP48
It appears those are sealed cabinets which are a great match for this woofer. As long as the original was 8 ohms this will work well as a replacement.

What is the magnet weight and why do you not state magnet weights on many of your woofer offerings ?

Asked by: Video Professor
Magnet weight has fallen out of favor with most speaker manufacturers and has been replaced with the Thiele/Small parameters in many cases. The Bl specification is usually a better indicator of the overall motor performance and includes the magnet performance along with the rest of the motor design.
