Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound in my projectGot these to replace the woofers in my epi 180's enlosure(70's vintage). Paired them with the reference dayton almunium dome tweeters. Using pre assembled crossover at 3.5k for the woofer(1st order,6db/oct) and a 2nd order 2.5k for the tweeter. I bypassed the polypropolene crossover caps with a film/foil cap and wow, amazing imaging and bass down to 40 hz.I tinkered with the crossover frequencies by ear, raising the woofer freq and lowering the tweeter freq. The result is a large midrange wave launch that images amazingly well with an admited bump in that range. Still, coupled with a Lepai 2020 amp, Ive got a little system Ive got maybe $150 invested in that I am always amazed with.This sits on my screened in porch and friends are literally shocked a how good the sound us

Goldwood GW-208/8 8" OEM Woofer 8 Ohm

How would these sound in a 48" Tall by 12" Wide by 12"Depth cabinet? Ported or not ported? in a 2 way setup with a goldwood silk dome tweeter? 100 watt x 2 Tech Amp

Asked by: Summit
That volume will work OK for a sealed design, providing an F3 of about 60 Hz and in room response into the 40's. The woofer and tweeter combination would work well, I would recommend a crossover between 2,500 and 3,000 Hz.

Yes these will work well as Heritage replacements. You can expect response into the upper 30's, lower 40's.

Are these suited for a ported enclosure?

I am limited by time, and need to know asap if these drivers would perform better in / or out of a ported enclosure, (sealed) ??Thanks, Johnny.
Asked by: Jlux
This woofer is better suited for a sealed box. I would recommend about 1 cubic foot for an f3 in the mid-upper 40's in room.
