Goldwood GW-205/8S 5-1/4" Shielded Poly Woofer 8 Ohm
If using this to replace a torn speaker in a in-wall system, should the 'other' speaker (undamaged) also be replaced ?
Newbie and pretty sound illiterate here but do know that 'undamaged' cone is also 8 ohms, not sure if speakers need to be 'perfectly' matched? Thanks for the patience and help!
If you have a "tuned" ear you will discern a difference between New and used. Your existing speaker could be similar or radically different. I am frugal, I would replace the damaged speaker and listen. You can always replace the other if the difference is too big

Good replacement driver for a PSB Aplha Mini? They're going to be rear surrounds.
These will work fine for replacements assuming they will fit in the enclosure. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this.

Yes, these are shielded and should work well as a replacement as long as they will mount ok.

Replacement for Minimus 77?
Are these suitable for a direct drop-in replacement woofer for a Realistic Minimus 77? Is any cabinet modification necessary?
Unfortunately, we do not have any kind of cross-reference by brand, model, or anything of the sort for replacing speakers. I believe I have heard a few individuals say that this is a suitable replacement for the Minimus 77s, but I couldn't guarantee that it would drop right into yours with no modification at all. If it absolutely doesn't work out for you, you can always take advantage of our 45-day satisfaction guarantee.

Can I use these in Optimus Pro LX5 cabs?
The stock woofers are labeled 6 ohm. Are these drivers compatible?
These Goldwood woofers have a Qts of 0.81, which is too high for a ported cabinet. I would use a speaker with a Qts of 0.4 or lower to avoid booming and port noise.
