Goldwood GW-8PC-8 8" Heavy Duty Woofer 8 Ohm
Does this woofer operate better in sealed or ported enclosures?
My application for these was sealed, 2-way boxes, so I can't tell you how they work in vented enclosures. I can tell you however, that they far exceeded my expectations!

I have a sealed box that is .727 cu ft. Would this woofer be a good fit in that box?
Yes it would work quite well in that size box as far as the frequency response goes, however your max point of linear excursion (Xmax) is reached before the thermal limits are (watts RMS) below about 100hz. In other words you need to be carful with the volume knob if you are using an amp with over 40 watts.If this is for use as a woofer in a set of speakers I say go for it you will be fine.If going to be used as a sub the box is a little on the large size to control the cone movement under the full rated input power when all the woofer is doing is going to be playing bass.

This page says the overall diameter is 8" but the catalog page says 8-3/16". Which one is it?
The correct O.D. is 8" even. We can update the website instantly and as often as necessary, whereas we can only update the catalog annually. I apologize for the typographical error in the catalog.

What is the baffle cutout
The web page spec says it's a little over 3", which must be off. Thanks.
Yes this requires a 7-3/16" cutout. I will have the website updated.

Best sized Ported Enclosure for deep Bass?? + port size?
Recomended enclosure for this woofer is 1.1 cubic feet with a 3" diameter, 8" long port tube. This will tune the box to about 42 Hz which is about as low as you will get from this woofer.

Matching Cabinet Loading - Bose 601 Series 11
How does one go about matching cabinet loading? I tried contacting Bose to see if they had any technical specification on the woofer that they used and no longer have this information available. Perhaps someone share with me how I should go about selecting a suitable or direct replacement faulting to better performance if possible.
to the best of your ability take some measurements,you need to determine cabinet volume and port dimensions if you dont want or are unable to alter port geometry/tuning frequency.if you dont have an issue with tuning disregard port dimensions temporarily.from this point you will need assistance from someone familiar with speaker design.compile your dimensional data.once you have completed this,repost your findings and there will be numerous people willing to assist you in restoring your 601 II's to better than new condition with contemporary drivers that exceed by far the originals.
