Product Details

Goldwood GW-8024 8" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm

Butyl rubber surrounds are superior to foam in two important ways. First, the butyl rubber resists moisture and will not dry rot, providing years of service. Second, the rubber surround, due to its superior damping characteristics will greatly reduce cone break up and ensure low distortion. These woofers are ideal for replacing and upgrading old, worn out drivers. They all feature a polypropylene cone, vented pole piece, foam gasket, soft poly dust cap, and stamped steel frame.

Goldwood GW-8024 8" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm
Goldwood GW-8024 8" Butyl Surround Woofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for Axiom AX3 reference Series woofersI bought these on spec after trying other woofers from PE which did not quite meet my goal. These Goldwood seem to integrate well in my Axiom AX3 3 way vintage speakers. I spent some time in attempting to match the T&S parameters to the Axiom ported cabinets' volume. I'm happy with the bass though since I don't have measurement gear I'm unsure if they meet the original specs of a 36Hz lower limit. When I acquired them they had old alnico woofers (AR's maybe) witch definitely did not sound good. Now to tame (with L pad) the Vifa tweeters which seem very bright to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the priceIf you're short on cash and need a decent 8" Woofer, these will work. I am making some tops and I wanted a cheap woofer to use to design them and make sure things are all working properly before I spend the big bucks and invest in a more expensive set for my finished product. These actually sound pretty good and I am considering just keeping them in! If it aint broke, don't fix it, right?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical replacementI bought this as a replacement for my son's 2002 Avalon. OEM replacement was very expensive. This speaker is a good replacement. Though not as much base as the original, it definitely makes a difference in the sound of the system. Great alternative, especially for the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good substitute woofer for original JBL in my 2003Installed in my 2003 Toyota Avalon to replace original JBL woofer. Job took several hours to install but the bass is now operational and sounds good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound.This isn't a exact fit for replacement of the woofer in the back of your suburban. You'll need to get a mounting kit. also the speaker is too long/ depth wise to fit snug w/o it. other than that the sound is awesome. really didn't know how much I was missing until I replaced it. one other thing , the electrical connector from YOUR hardware (speaker wires have two sizes. Sm & Lg. this speaker has males ends that are standard size. so your Lg female is going to be loose connection. easy fix if you've done wiring before w/ speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Woofer in my 2002 Toyota AvalonThe site was easy to navigate and I found the recommended replacement speaker easily. I sent a request to confirm this unit as a legitimate replacement and got a quick response. The shipment went out right away along with a confirmation email. I received the speaker and installing it was a breeze. The original speaker was 3.7 ohms and the replacement was 4 ohms and I can not tell the difference. It sounds great and I am very happy.

does it fit in a 2002 Toyota Avalon

Asked by: luisangel
This is a very popular replacement option for the Avalon, although I cannot say if any modifications are required for it to work properly.

No. This is a very popular replacement woofer for the Avalons, the wattage will not affect anything negatively.

Trying to replace the subwoofer in my 2000 Yukon, which has 2 ohm rating. I am assuming I can parallel the wiring to make it 2 ohm. Will this speaker work ?

Asked by: beachstock
If the original woofer was a dual voice coil model, meaning it had two positive (+) and two negative (-) connections, you cannot tie those wires together. You can however use a single coil sub like this Goldwood and it will work, you will just get slightly less power from the amp due to the 4 ohm rating.

would these be a good replacement for a vintage pair of MTX aal 83  3 way home speakers? my woofers finally wore out after 20 years!!!!

Asked by: sansuidave1
This would work okay although a better option for that cabinet would be the Dayton Classic 8" which you can see below. This requires a cutout of 7.2" so slight cabinet modifications may be required for it to fit properly.
