Goldwood GW-206/8 6-1/2" OEM Woofer 8 Ohm
Goldwood GW-206/8 6-1/2" OEM Woofer 8 Ohm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for AR 8b WooferPurchased two of these to replace the woofers in my AR 8b speakers. The sound matches the one original refoamed woofer that worked very well, perhaps a tad louder. Perfect replacement fit and now the ARs sing again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Value!Replaced woofers in a pair of Infinity Reference-1's since the originals had rotted foam surrounds Rich, full bass sound, well pleased with them except for the position of attachment clips as noted above (only negative point off). Had to bend the connectors well down and solder but that was a small issue to use these drivers as replacements. Highly recommend these (able to handle a LOT of power!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice replacement woofersI purchased these to replace the woofers in a pair of infinity reference one bookshelf speakers that I got at a thrift store for 3 bucks, they had the usual rotted surrounds and I thought replacing them was easier than repairing them. The woofers have a much better magnet structure than the the img woofers and a better power rating. they sound great and I'm hoping will improve with brake in as they are pretty stiff out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goldwood GW 206/8 (6 1/2" 8-ohm Bass Speaker)These Goldwood speakers are proving to be excellent replacements for the bass speakers in an old dbx bass enclosure I repaired. The bass enclosure is part of a three-piece sub-sat system that was sold a couple of decades ago by a now-defunct company which shall remain nameless. If you are looking for bass drivers for one of those systems, or anything comparable, these Goldwoods will do the job nicely. To me, they sound better than the original speakers and I expect them to improve even more once they are broken-in.Heck, the bass sounds so good now that I might have to upgrade the tweeters in the satellite enclosures too!In my opinion, the only negative aspect of these speakers is that the terminals are not well-placed. When I tried to install them using the terminal clips on the wires inside my speaker enclosure they would not fit within the speaker cutout. I had to remove the clips and solder the wires directly to the speaker terminals to make them fit. It was a little annoying and made the installation a bit more difficult than it needed to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye Allison refoams!Used these Goldwoods to replace my Allison 8 woofers. These 4 ohm Goldwoods are ideal! Lots of punch in the bass with no distortion. Didn't expect them to perform so well! PE packed packed and shipped them in a timely manner. I saved the packaging to ship my used ones to a friend who wanted to rebuild the originals for his own use. My Allison 8's have never sounded so good! Extremely satisfied.

Goldwood GW-206/8 6-1/2" OEM Woofer 8 Ohm

Opinion on a enclosure of 24" tall 8" wide ported box with the Goldwood GT510 tweeter crossed at 6000hz with the 3.3uF 100V Electrolytic Non-Polarized Crossover Capacitor? 2-way speaker

Asked by: Brad79

Is that for a set or just one

Asked by: kenny50
Product is priced per unit. one each.

How would these do in a 20"H 10"W 10"D box sound? Laying down on its side with the Goldwood GT-510 Tweeter crossed over at 3000Hz? Port or no?

Asked by: Summit
These will reach into the 40's pretty well, but I would recommend keeping it sealed. That crossover and tweeter would be a good match.
