Default just received a pair of these

I subscribe to my local freecycle list and managed to get a pair of Goodmans Goodwood speakers a guy was getting rid of, for nothing. They now reside in my kids shed/den and don't sound too bad. 3 way as described. They stand about 76cm tall , on the floor and would probably be considered 'dated' or retro in design, but the cabinets are very well made. At present they are being run off a T-amp fed from a CDROM. "Kashmir" sounded suitable bombastic.

One of the bass driver domes has a bit of a dent. Is there a suggested way of returning it to it's original shape ?

Hi, Assuming its not actually torn you can often suck the dome back out with a vacume cleaner. It is much easier if you have on with an adjustable suck level. Set it to minimum and then bing the tube close to the dome hopefully it will pull it back out.

regards,
Andrew

Default Tweeter for Goodmans Goodwood Loudspeakers

I own a pair of Goodmans Goodwood Domestic Monitor Loudspeakers. I replaced the tweeters and the woofers in them using parts I bought from Parts Express. I also replaced the speaker connectors with banana plug terminals, bought new cloth for the grills, and purchased a set of ball and socket "grill guides" connectors. The grill now mounts onto the speaker more securely. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

I have a full set of original Goodmans Goodwod drive units that I took out of the cabinets to use them for something else.

Thank you everyone for all your help. The speakers have long gone, but replacing the capacitors in the crossover and using some decent tweeters from Maplins made the sound OK.

Kef's Concerto with the B139 bass driver are a massive upgrade from the Goodwoods.

Default Goodman Speakers: Made great speakers in the 50's and 60's

They bring back nice memories of my parents.

My father was really into HI FI, in the early 60's. He obtained a pair of Goodman Axiette 101 8" single cone speakers/w tweeter, at Goody's Audio Center on West 49th St. in New York. Think it was around 1959, prior to me moving out of their house.

Goodman's Works were located in Wembley, Middx, England, back then.

My dad had this liking for British HI FI gear. His power amp was a 10watt job from a company called Simmons & Sons Ltd. Other than his records, the only other item he had that was not British, was his RCA turntable.

I have his speakers. Not much else remains.


Take Care


Ivey.
