Our take on the Sony XS-GT1638F

by John Pollard
Sony

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Upgrade your factory speakers

Are your car's factory speakers sounding a little flat? Replace them with these Sony GT Series speakers, and you'll hear the full impact of your music, along with lots of little details you may not have heard before. Bass will be punchy, and vocals will sound more lifelike. Your commute will be more enjoyable than ever before.  

Better sound thanks to better materials

The XS-GT1638F 6-1/2" speakers feature woofer cones made from Highly Oriented Polyolefine, a lightweight material developed by Sony that's especially rigid and strong. Sony reinforces these cones with the same Aramid fibers that are used in bulletproof vests, so they'll stand up to high-volume playback. Each 3-way speaker features a 1-7/16" balanced dome tweeter and a 1/4" supertweeter that reproduce lively highs, adding in the details that make the instruments and vocals sound true to life. Grilles are included.

Features

Woofers: The woofers are made of Highly Oriented Polyolefine reinforced with an aramid and carbon fiber matrix (HOP+ACFM), which is much stronger than regular polypropylene. Use of this material results in less distortion and better, quicker bass response.

Treated Cloth Surrounds: Each woofer uses a treated cloth surround for added reliability and efficiency.

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1-7/16" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter. A 1/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome super tweeter further reinforces the high frequency output. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Awesome Speakers for the Price

Written By ChaseD., CA on Thursday, October 09, 2014
 
Awesome speakers if you are putting a system into your car that includes a subwoofer. Got these rocking in my truck with a 10 inch JL audio sub and together they sound awesome. When the sub is turned off these speakers virtually have no bass in them, but that's exactly what i wanted as I just wanted the mids and highs expressed.

Great Speakers, Great Price

Written By Lee, Bolingbrook, IL on Wednesday, September 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought a 2002 Acura RL and have to replace the speakers. This pair was a great choice for what I need! being 3-way, it hit the highs, lows, mids just perfect, and with Acura's stock power amp - it was awesome! I installed this on the rear deck in concert with Sony XS-GT1338F - so you get the sweet spot. Great bang for the heard-earned bucks!
Pros:
Great pair for any application and taste of music.
Cons:
None at this time.

Installed as part of a full factory replacement on a 2014 Nissan Sentra. Much cleaner sound than the factory speakers.
Pros:
Good overall sound at an affordable price.
Cons:
Unfortunately there was no MasterSheet for my car so I had to look elsewhere for instructions on how to disassemble my car's interior, a not so difficult but lenghty process. The adapter included made installation easier but one of the tabs had to be modified because it wasn't aligned with the screw hole.

Decent speakers

Written By Bpashk, Pittsburgh, PA on Monday, August 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speakers sound nice and are a decent upgrade over factory speakers, which were blown. The only thing I don't like is these things have virtually NO BASS. I read the other reviews that said the bass was weak but it's pretty much non-existent.
Pros:
Good upgrade from factory speakers.
Cons:
No Bass.

Sony speakers

Written By Eddy w, New York on Thursday, July 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sounded good for about 2 days then one of the speakers started to give a distorted sound (I did not play them loud at all). Took the bad speaker out and the cloth around the woofer was wrinkled and soft...it had collapsed in a 1" section. I expect more from Sony, but really not surprised...should have gone with Alpine/ Polk to begin with.
Pros:
Sounded good for the time it worked
Cons:
Poor materials surrounding the woofer. I went and got some Alpines to replace...they sound great. Will not go back to low price sony speakers..lesson learned.

Waste of time and money

Written By JeffB, Omaha, Ne on Friday, July 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
One of the factory speakers in my Dodge Dakota went bad, so I bought these to replace the factory speakers. The factory speakers sounded way better. These sound tinny and cheap, and no bass. I even double checked the polarity because of the lack of bass. I realize these are not high priced speakers, but what's the point of aftermarket speakers that sound worse than factory? These are likely to be sent back for a refund.
Pros:
They might be ok if you also use a sub woofer.
Cons:
Cheap sound and lacking in bass. Factory speakers sound better, at least on a Dodge Dakota.

Great replacement speakers in a 2001 Silverado

Written By Dukeboy40475, Richmond, KY on Sunday, April 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these Sony 3- way speakers to replace the stock speakers in a 2001 Chevy Silverado extended cab. I had already replaced the stock stereo with a higher- end Kenwood. I had listened to some of these speakers at a local big box store and they sounded better to my ears than some higher priced speakers that were also on display. I paired them with some 4X6 Kicker 40CS464 speakers in the rear doors. I also left the OEM tweeters installed and hooked up. The big box store wanted $184 just to install speakers. I got both sets of speakers from Crutchfield with all of the installation gear for less than $100 and decided to try installing them myself. I had never installed speakers in a car before, but the door panels in a Silverado come off pretty easily. I had a buddy, who had never installed any speakers in a car either, help me. It took us about an hour and a half to install all four speakers, which included having to drill some holes for the rear speakers. Someone with experience could probably do it a lot quicker. The install on the front speakers was really easy with the supplied mounting bracket, which snapped right into the factory speaker mounting position. No drilling is required for the front speakers to be mounted if you use the bracket. The sound quality out of these is great compared to stock. They work just fine with the factory tweeters as well. If you've replaced your stock stereo you owe it to yourself to replace your stock speakers as well.
Pros:
Great sound, especially for the price Easy installation (at least in a Silverado)
Cons:
None observed yet

Surprisingly decent

Written By Ric, Bham, Al on Saturday, April 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Surprisingly decent sound. I purchased as an afterthought to get my 20% off on my Sony Head unit. I have these paired with a pair of Fosgate 6x9's in the rear deck and they blend in pretty well. Clear volume and decent full sound. I think a lot has to do with the clear signal and sound shaping capabilities of the Sony deck, but I'm happy. I've bought a lot of 6 1/2 's in the past, so I know what to expect. These are not polk quality - but then again they aren't the Polk or JL price. They sound decent with just 17W coming from the deck.
Pros:
Clear full sound, decent lows

I used these to replace the original speakers in my 2001 Honda. They made a dramatic improvement but seem a little tinny even with the bass all the way up and treble all the way down.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced the front speakers in my 2003 Subaru WRX. They sound much better than the stock factory speakers. For the price, I am quite happy with the upgrade. For my vehicle model, I will note that the packaged screws are too long to be used with the included (by Crutchfield) mounting bracket. I used #8 5/8" sheet metal screws from the hardware store instead, as I did not have anything on hand to clip the Sony screws.
Pros:
- Clean sound
Cons:
- Bass is not their strong suit

Big improvement over stock

Written By Joe, Kansas on Monday, March 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to replace my front Trailblazer door speakers. They sound much better and were easy to install.
Pros:
Easy installation (maybe 30 minutes), much better highs and lows.
Cons:
If i could do it again I would invest in a component setup. I was worried about the installation but after I got the door panel off I realized how easy a component setup would have been.

Great Speakers for the Money

Written By Kyle F., Boca Raton, FL on Sunday, March 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these on my 2004 Honda Element after I blew out the stock ones. I ordered these speakers because they were an exact fit for my car. Crutchfield did great with shipping and I ended up getting them a day head of schedule. These speakers came with the wiring adapters and instructions for my specific car. These speakers were a breeze to install and only took half an hour to install in all four car doors. I've had these speakers for a month now and all I can say is wow! They are a big improvement over the stock speakers both in sound quality and in the material there made of. These speakers have a little extra bass then my stock ones but still sound great! I have a factory tuner in my car that lets me adjust the settings on the speakers, so I can get them just right. I would definitely recommend these speakers for anyone who wants great sound in their car but doesn't want to blow a lot of money on them. The people over at Crutchfield were amazing in their technical support and I wouldn't shop anywhere else!
Pros:
Easy Installation Great Constuction Low Price Comes with Everything

I bought these spurs for the front door of my Dakota quad cab I also bought a sony mex gs600bt head unit. I use the rear bass enhancer and have crisp mids and highs in front with clean punchy bass in back.
Pros:
Crisp mids and highs. Good clean sound
Cons:
Not as much bass as I like. Not a deal breaker.

Sony XS-GT1638F

Written By Jordan, laurel hill, florida on Monday, March 10, 2014
 
I purchased these to put in a 1997 toyota 4runner in the front doors. It was an easy install and didn't take very long. Great deal for the price and great for replacing the stock speakers. The lows are okay, but the mids and highs are good and it is a lot clearer sound than the stock speakers.
Pros:
Good upgrade for stock speakers. Dont distort sound when turned up loud and clear sound.
Cons:
Lows could be better.

Nice sound

Written By NickK, Bellefonte, PA on Friday, March 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these speakers after discovering the wiring to one of the factory speakers on my CRV was completely torn. Installing these into the front door of the CRV was an easy process, once I had all the wires securely connected. It didn't take long to get the speakers installed and I was ready to give them a test listen. The sound coming from these is great! Far better than what I had been getting with the factory speakers. After replacing two of the speakers, I'm already planning on replacing the other 2 factory speakers.
Pros:
Easy to install, sound great. The wiring harness is an awesome thing to get for free.
Cons:
None

I was looking to just replace a bad speaker in my drivers door. I bought a pair of these and the difference was more than I would have imagined. There is bass that I never heard before from the stock speakers. Great value and easy fit with the additional mounting kit. Just another reason why I continue to shop at Crutchfield.
Pros:
Great price, Easy installation. A joy to listen to.
Cons:
None that I can find

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are awesome, I bought them a week ago and have been waiting to get them in the truck. The bass has plenty of punch for me and they are a snap to install using the free kits that they send you, My 16 year old Son's eyebrows went up when I put in a Maroon Five CD! He wondered why Chevy would have put in such garbage to start with. It's a huge step forward for us and puts new life into our favorite vehicle! Thanks Buck and Crutchfield for taking care of me!!
Pros:
The installation kits and harnesses.
Cons:
No Cons!!

Great sound for the money, weaker than I'd hoped in the bass range, will add subwoofer to augment
Pros:
Fit better than expected - Crutchfield recommendations spot on great price point
Cons:
would like more bass, can't have it all... would like more positive connection to grill, separation made installation a little more tedious, but nothing major to overcome

I was excited to get these speakers and then when they arrived, discovered they are made in Vietnam??? I guess for the price maybe I shouldn't have expected them to be made in Japan. Oh, well...installed them today and they sound pretty good and can handle a fair amount of volume (stock system).
Pros:
Sounds pretty good and looks of reasonable quality.
Cons:
You get what you pay for.

These speakers sounded awesome with just the aftermarket deck, but once I installed the amp that fits them they sound worse now. I have made sure everything with the amp is correct and set right but they do not have the sound that i thought they would. If you are doing just a factory upgrade these speakers will do the trick but if your looking for something else you might want to look around some more.

Great Upgrade

Written By SoCal Hank, Ventura, CA on Monday, January 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sony XS-GT1638F great speakers for a great price. Sony is well known brand and these speakers are a great upgrade from factory speakers. Looking for affordable replacement, then check out these Sony speakers! Clarity in both highs and mid range.
Pros:
Sounds fantastic. There is definitely an improvement in sound quality over factory speakers. And they were at an affordable price. Crutchfield provided every you need for install so worry not!
Cons:
Since these are Coxial speakers there really isn't any tones in the mid-bass range. But that's to be expected since these cover highs to midrange with a small amount of bass.

Great little speakers. I replaced OEM speakers in the rear doors. I must say I am impressed with the overall sound. Though they may be small speakers, they have a big sound. Nice bass and clear high ends. Installation was a piece of cake with the adapter kit. I would highly recommend these speaker. I would not consider them replacement speakers but rather an upgrade.

Easy to install, great highs, disappointing lows. I installed these to replace the factory Toyota speakers a week after I replaced the OEM stereo with an aftermarket Sony head unit. To be honest, the Toyota (non-JBL) speakers produced much better bass. The highs are better but I really contenplated sending these back and sticking with the factory ones.
Pros:
Highs
Cons:
Lows
