Goldwood GW-8PC-8 8" Heavy Duty Woofer 8 Ohm
Do you have the installed depth, or the depth below the cabinet face? I assume a portion (.25" +/-) of the listed "depth" will sit above the face? I have a conflict inside my cabinet at about 3.5", so I need an exact measurement of the installed depth.
The actual mounting depth of this driver from the back of the flange is 3-13/16".

This can actually play at 7khz right, some said in a comment it maxed at 2800, if so i just bought a 5k 2-way crossover for this and a pyle super tweeter. This will work right the specs on the website are correct or am I incorrect?
If you look at the actual frequency response graph for this driver it will only reach 7kHz if you account for the cone breakup that happens. Because of beaming, I usually don't recommend crossing an 8" over any higher than about 2kHz anyway.

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.

Speaker Power Requirements
I am looking to replace my Bose Series 601 Series 2 woofers and considering purchasing these speakers as a replacement. My receiver has 130W RMS per channel and concerned I do not have enough power to operate them at all sound levels.
i built thousands of 601series2 and 3's in 80's,the power should be the least of your worries,matching those drivers to the cabinet loading should be primary.

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.
