Reviews

Goldwood GW-1538/PA 15" PA / Musical Instrument Speaker
Goldwood GW-1538/PA 15" PA / Musical Instrument Speaker is rated 4.5714 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced tone and a great valueI have an all tube combo amp that had originally come with a 12" Celestion. I didn't like the flabby bass response from the Celestion, so I decided to replace it. I picked up a Goldwood 12" just for the fun of it, figuring it would probably sound horrible, but what the heck... Experience has shown me that very often the cheap no name product will be the best product for the money, so for the price it was worth a shot. Well the 12" Goldwood sounded so good that I decided to build a 15" extension cabinet to go with it, and mounted the 15" Goldwood in that cabinet. The 15" sounds just like any other 15" guitar speaker in terms of tone and stage presence, very full with the somewhat muted highs that give them that big stage sound and presence. The 12" alone has a very tight up front in your face tone, so tying it to the 15" really filled out the tone and gave it a much bigger sound stage.I will be using the Goldwood line in future Guitar projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the Seventies sound better than evera friend recently made me a gift of a beat - up pair of Kustom Pro 3W cabs from the Seventies for my son's teen rock band to jam on. A set of those Goldwood 15's brought them right back to life. Great, very affordable sound and maybe the boys will learn a few oldies for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extreamly loudI built two ten cubic foot boxes and put two of these in each box to make a dual 15 two way speaker and my neighbors hate me. And for the price you will not find another speaker this good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product.very good speakers for the price and speaker cabinet that I used them for.thank you again parts express. james fletcher hinesville,ga.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No better value for the moneyI bought these and built the custom cabinets to the specs listed below the speaker from Goldwood. The sound is crisp from 45hz-7500-8000hz. I powered them with a 350watt amp to test the limits. They are loud, but not ear ringing loud. Great for large venues-multiple speakers and band music. If you're doing electronic or heavy decibel levels you'll need higher wattage speakers.
