When you turn up your favorite song on the road, you expect it to sound just as good in your car as it does in your head. If your current system is falling flat, Sony's XS Series speakers perform with verve and gusto to bring your music back to life.

Precision woofers
These XS-GTR1720 component speaker system features incredibly lightweight, mica-reinforced 6-1/2" woofers that are both airy and stiff, so they can produce big sound without warping or distorting. A supple rubber surround supports these woofers, helping to keep them centered during heavy excursion so you enjoy full bass. The high-energy magnet and nimble motor structure drive the cone with precision so the vocals and instruments sound natural.

High-frequency details
Vibrant highs from separate 1" aluminum dome tweeters mean you'll hear expressive vocals and cymbal work. External 2-way crossovers keep your highs in flawless balance with your mids and lows, and even let you power the tweeters and woofers separately for enhanced performance and efficiency. Mount these tweeters in a good spot, direct them towards your ears, and you'll catch every satisfying detail.

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.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are made of Mica Reinforced Cellular Fiber (MRC). MRC is very light and extraordinarily rigid, producing exceptional musical transients that are clear with little distortion compared to traditional cone materials.

Tweeters: The tweeters are 1" aluminum domes offering outstanding dispersion and clarity. They can be flush mounted, surface mounted using the angled brackets, or surface mounted using the flat brackets.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount Angle Mount
Depth 0.920" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Height 0.484" 1.478" 1.580"
Cutout Diameter 2.021" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 2.437" 1.848" 1.982"

Note: With any of the mounting brackets the threaded mounting posts can be used to hold the tweeters in place, this adds to the required depth (approximately 1-3/8" for flush mounting and 1/4" for surface mounting).

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 allow you to set the tweeter output level according to your system requirements and personal preference; choose 0 dB (factory setting) or -3dB. 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.

Bi-amp Inputs: The 2-way crossover has separate inputs for the woofer and tweeter; this lets you drive the system with dedicated power for the separate speaker elements, instead of sharing power. The input jumper wires are factory installed to short the tweeter and woofer inputs; the jumper wires must be removed and separate input wires used to bi-amp the speakers.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.647"
  • Width: 3.287"
  • Height: 1.277"

Mounting: The woofers can be mounted in a variety of 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" applications;

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

EASY, GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, GOOD PRICE

Factory Replacement

Written By Russell, Macon, Ga on Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased to replace front factory speakers. The sound is nice and clear and a
definite upgrade to stock. Installation was fairly simple with only limited
modifications. I would strongly suggest that you run the tweeters in the -3db mode
on the crossover the first time as opposed to having to pull your door back apart to
change it. The Low end is a little lacking for my taste. They are really designed to
be ran with a sub. All in all though these are great sounding speakers for the
money and a great upgrade.
