This XS-GTX1622S component system from Sony features 6-1/2" woofers made from Highly Oriented Polyolefine reinforced with Aramid fibers, so the cones are much stronger than polypropylene for better energy efficiency and power handling. These super-light cones recover quickly from one note to the next, increasing clarity in the vocal range. Synthetic rubber speaker surrounds resist stretching and maintain their elasticity for long life under heavy usage.

The 29/32" soft dome tweeters produce clear high notes, bringing out your music's details and delivering a lively, open sound. High-frequency response extends beyond the normal limits of human hearing, producing the overtones that make the instruments sound even more natural. The external 2-way crossovers distribute the lows and highs to the woofers and tweeters, creating a seamless blend of well-balanced sound, from a pounding drum to the highest cymbal crash.

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Features

Woofers: The woofers are made of Highly Oriented Polyolefine (H.O.P.) plus aramid fiber. Using high-tech fibers aligned under extreme pressure, Sony's exclusive H.O.P. is lighter and stronger than polypropylene. The result is greater linearity, smoother response, and better sound.

Tweeters: The tweeters are 29/32" Tetron soft domes and can be flush mounted, surface mounted using an angled bracket, or surface mounted using a flat bracket.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount Angle Mount
Depth 0.875" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Height 0.334" 1.24" 1.27"
Cutout Diameter 1.68" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 2.0" 1.53" 1.53"
Note: The threaded mounting posts can be used to hold the tweeters in place when using any of the mounting brackets, this adds approximately 1-1/2" to the required depth.

Crossovers: Each crossover has high-pass and low-pass outputs with a 5 kHz crossover point and 12 dB/octave slope. A jumper inside each crossover allows you to set the tweeter output level according to system requirements and personal preference; choose -3dB or 0dB. The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. There are two mounting holes in the base of each crossover.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.02"
  • Width: 2.55"
  • Height: 1.04"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off the description says it is a 6.5, it is actually a 6.75, so that made it real hard to fit the bracket it come with. It also didn't sound as good for price I payed. After playing around with the settings I got it to sound OK. Maybe with a foam baffle it would sound better. I do like it better than the 5.25 that I had before.
