Never heard of Goodmans Goodwood speakers, and I've been
around awhile, and I know my obscure British speakers.

If its a dome tweeter I'd suggest buying a pair of Audax dome
tweeters from Maplin part no QS60Q, and taking it from there.

Thanks

Goodmans Goodwood are form the early 1970's and were part of the range that included the Achromatic 400. Goodwood's were often sold as part of a system with the Module 90.

Thank you for your help.

"module 90" : do you mean the fairly groovy looking receiver ?

The Goodman's speakers I do know are perhaps a little later,
but the older models I came across had poor tweeters,
basically a clear dome with a foam pad stuck to the middle.

Go for the Audax's, adding some resistors may be required
for balance, though they will be likely fairly near, and sound
a lot better almost certainly.

Thanks Sreten

The tweeters are soft dome and resemble closely the Axent 100 tweeter that was supplied to the public as a separate item. Date was 1975.

Default goodmans goodwood

Hi there, I realise that you posted this a while ago, but I have a fully working pair of Goodmans Goodwood loudspeakers which I am thinking of splitting, because someone is interested in the bass units only. the tweeters and midrange units are in excellent condition and working order.

If your still interested, email me and we can sort it out.

Phil

This was first posted about a year ago. However I have just been given a pair of Goodmans Goodwood speakers, or at least I think they are. The reason I say that is because the pamphlet that I was given says that they have a 12" bass unit. The speakers in fact have an 8" bass unit, but look exactly like the picture on the pamphlet.

One of the bass surrounds has lifted off and I have succesfully re-glued it back into position. I have not yet listened to them, but the blurb boasts that they are "domestic studio monitors" at 96db sensitive. Are they worth spending any money on ?

500va My old mags suggest that Goodmans had at least two tweeters at that time. One was a 1" cloth dome with a short "horn" effect. You can either see the horn as being about half an inch deep or think of the dome as being recessed. I think that's the one you're after. From memory the tests done by "Hifi choice" had it peaking very badly above 13/14kHz. The other unit would appear to have been a 38mm (1 1/2" ) dome that appeared identical to a contemporary SEAS unit (H87 I think). That had a perforated metal covering in one of its incarnations.

Replacing both with a modern pair of 1" domes wouold appear to be a good move. The Goodmans cross over was a second order affair with something like 4.7uF in series with 0.47mH across the unit ie about 3kHz. At least that's what my kit had. As already stated the may profit from a db or two reduction in level.

I see the reply just posted was in response to an earlier post. I have listened to the speakers today and find that they sound rather dull in comparison to more modern speakers (well they are over 30 years old). I will have a go at tweaking the crossover to see if I can make the treble and mid-range "come alive"! Any tips from anyone ?
