Goldwood GW-4028/S 4" Woofer Shielded
Goldwood GW-4028/S 4" Woofer Shielded is rated 4.0769 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent little mid-range replacementHad to find replacement mid-range drivers for a pair of KLH 365 tower speakers. The cabinets were still in excellent shape after about 10 years. After minor work with a router, they were a drop in replacement. I did break them in for 50-55 hours. The stated specs for these drivers are very accurate, as I tested all parameters myself and found tolerances rather tight. Considering the price paid, this driver is well worth the money. These mids are playing between 750Hz and 4.4 KHz on my own 3-way, 4th order LR crossover design. Vocals are amazingly clean for this inexpensive midrange. These are not Morel drivers, but for cost-to-performance ratio, I would definitely place these high on the list. These little gems will not dissapoint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from kinda flimsynot much to say, the mounting holes were too far inward for my purpose, so i cant say about the performance. however, they are very cheaply made and bend easily. one of the frames was bent when i got it, not much, but enough. and the other went flying onto the floor when i tried to open the package and pretty much destroyed it. it was bent enough so that the surround was pulled taught. probably a good driver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement speakerI buy old or used speakers at thrift stores that are good and solid for rebuilding. iSympony pair of speakers are the cabinets I replaced using these. Less the speaker volume you get about 200 cubic inches and ported 1.250 by 3" long tube. Amazing results. Teamed them up with 2.5" cone tweeter 270-034. But there is a problem with these drivers and that is the hook up terminals are switched on some drivers causing a miss matched polarity and could be the reason some are not getting the bottom end results. Check ALL woofers with a battery to confirm the proper polarity.They really are good speakers with a great midrange response and base down to about 50 Hz I would estimate. Perfect for the small compact satellite speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good soundI paired this driver with a Goldwood GT-510 1" soft dome tweeter and put both into a sealed enclosure with no stuffing and no internal bracing, crossed with a 2-Way 8 Ohm 5,000 Hz 100W crossover. This was the first speaker I made, so I made some mistakes with the first enclosure, so I re-did it and was amazed by the second one I made. My first attempt I tried to use seperate enclosures for both and basically stack them on top of each other, but my cutting ablility is terrible, so it was rather lopsided.When I built my second enclosure I kept it simple and with a sealed enclosure and put both drivers into the same chamber. I can't believe how much better the speaker sounded than my "consumer" Onkyo speakers. It sounded so much better that I built another one and only listen to them. This driver provides more than enough quality for mid-range sound, but it obviously doesn't do well on the lows, so if you want some bass either go the 3-way route or just add a sub.My next project is going to be a set of 3-way tower speakers to replace these speakers as my fronts and and also, hopefully, a 3-way center channel that isn't ridiculously large and still has the ability to go low enough to give male voices more power.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just O.K. Not what I expected.I purchased 2 to replace some POLK speakers (Woofers) from my CS-250 center channel that Polk has discontinued. They just barely fit and I have lost a lot of the lower end range. There is more highs and a loss of bass. Now that I have them installed it's kind of hard to send back and spend the extra money for shipping and new replacements. I can purchase a new center channel for the added expense. They might be o.k. Just wish I would have been given a better recommendation before ordering. However, the pre-order people were very nice!!!

looking for a 4" woofer for Minimus sized ported enclosure

looking at Goldwood 4"'s with the rubber surrounds. want to strip out cheap speakers in upscale Aiwa' bookshelf CD-receiver unit and drop in real speakers, x-over and "stuffing" to preserve "look" of the set.
Asked by: DCS1
This would do, but unless you really require shielded speakers [bookshelf speakers were notorious for corrupting video and audio tapes on the same shelf], opt for ones with less depth to maximize the working volume of the enclosure.
