Sony XS-GT5738F

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-GT5738F 5"x7"/6"x8" 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 7/16" supertweeter that reproduce lively highs, adding in the details that make the instruments and vocals sound true. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Product Highlights:

  • 5"x7"/6"x8" 3-way car speakers (pair)
  • Aramid-reinforced Highly Oriented Polyolefine (H.O.P.) woofer with cloth surround
  • 1-7/16" PEI balanced dome tweeter and 7/16" PEI dome supertweeter
  • power range: 2-35 watts RMS (230 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 45-23,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 88 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-5/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Sony XS-GT5738F Speakers

Written By Boejoone, Lehigh Acres, Fl. on Sunday, March 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice upgrade from factory speakers and a perfect fit in my 2004 f350. I do recommend buying a adhesive seal from Home Depot and install it around hole before mounting. It will help with sealing and eliminating rattle later.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None

well made...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Paired 4 of these with an all in one subwoofer in my 2005 Ford F-150 super cab. The mids and highs are much clearer than the factory speakers and fill the cab with sound. Easy to install.

Pros: Clear mids and highs Perfect fit Cost

Cons: None

Cons: Have not installed yet


Written By JustinE., Jacksonville, FL on Thursday, November 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit wonderfully in my 2005 Ford F-150. I also paired 4 of these speakers to a new head-unit that's also from Sony rated output at 52 RMS watts x 4 and it sounds great. Good mids and highs and enough thump even without the 10" subs I plan to install (going to make ears bleed in that small truck cab). Very happy with these. Especially for the price.

Pros: Loud Durable Pretty good quality (they aren't the $200 Alpines in sound quality, but I got what I payed for and that's all that matters) If a set burns out its not super expensive to replace, yet they haven't gone yet and I don't think they will for a while honestly. Probably will be discontinued before that happens.

Cons: Sound tends to get distorted on higher levels. Sounds more like the speaker is trying to push bass that it just doesn't have in a 5x7 cone since mids and highs come through clear. Easy to fix with some real bass and some low-tech passive bass blockers for the speakers. Had to make some minor adjustments for the mounting eyes of the speaker and the factory holes (extremely minor if you have the right tools and half a brain) it's to be expected though. If you want a direct fit don't buy universal

Crisp sound for good price.

Written By Jer, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had a blown speaker in my 2010 Focus SES and 2004 F-150 XL. Bought 8 speakers and replaced them all. Nice crisp and clear sound. Can only notice that the sound quality is better a small amount over the stock speakers that weren't blown. Only thing I did not care for was that I had to take a pair of tin shears to cut the top and bottom mounting eyes off to fit. Also, the mounting holes were a little off and had to force the speakers to sit in flat. Other than that I'm pleased with my purchase.

Pros: Easy Install. Clear and crisp sound.

Cons: Extra mounting eyes need cut off. Mounting holes didn't exactly match factory holes.

Impressed so far

Sony XS-GT5738F Feedback

Written By RobertB, Dallas, TX on Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall the speakers are great. They perform exactly as expected and pair up nicely with the SONY receiver we also purchased from Crutchfield.

Pros: *Paired up nicely with other Sony equipment *Sound is as expected *Seems to be a quality product *Install manuals and accessories from Crutchfield were great

Cons: Only CON is that the speaker mounting holes for my 2002 Ford F150 were a little off (nothing major and would not have mentioned, but needed something to add as CON :)) Had to apply some angle pressure to get the screws to line up with the mounting panel. Other than that - went nicely.

2014 Mustang Install

Written By Bishopski, South Carolina on Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect upgrade to cheap factory speakers from Ford. I added four of these and the difference is night and day. Speakers delivered quickly and the adaptors were perfect.

Pros: The highs and mids are amazing compared to factory speakers No need to add amps to Shaker 500 system as these on the factory amp will blow you out of the car Adaptors provided were free and worked like a charm

Cons: Install took about 1 hour for the rear deck (doing it right) Front speakers took about 45 min.

Major Sound Upgrade

Written By Mario, Richmond, VA on Sunday, September 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Clearly these speakers were a bargain price for a major upgrade from the Ford factory speakers. Nice full sound with clear mid-range and enough bass for me. Will use for bluetooth cell phone and they work good.

Pros: Sound great! Easy to install.

Cons: None yet!

As usual, they have the same Sony quality people have come to expect. The sound from these speakers is amazing for the price. These are a lower price speaker, but come with high-end sound. Great value for the money. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an affordable speaker.

Pros: Value, sound quality, ease of installation

Small speakers, Big Sound

Written By Woodman81, Hoopeston, IL on Sunday, July 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was unsure of the speakers I was going to get. Spoke with Artie and once we figured out how many speakers I needed and what I expected from my system, these speakers fit the bill perfect. Installed in a snap, easy directions, free speaker wiring harnesses. Installing all for speakers in my doors only took about 1.5 hours. Pretty good since I did it all myself. Now that I have had them for three weeks, I have to say they sound great, even when turned up loud. Great sound for not alot of money. Crutchfield, you guys came through AGAIN!!

Pros: Strong punchy sound, easy installation, they look cool, very good mid range.

Cons: none

I purchased these to replace and old set out of a 88 Mustang GT I'm very happy with the quality and and sound these speakers are a great replacement. Great high and mid tones with more bass then the old upgraded pair I removed, Not bad for a 5x7.

Pros: built well, cloth surround not the foam that never holds up over time

Cons: none

These speakers were a great improvement over the stock ones. The install was simple and only took about 20 minutes.

Pros: nice clear and crisp souond

Cons: I could only use 2 of the 4 mounting screws to attach to the grill. But it doesn't seem to bother the sound.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers for the price. Highs and Mids are awesome. The bass isn't to loud, just a little thump. That is perfect, just what I wanted. They don't fit exactly like they said. You have to trim the tabs off the ends, and the holes are a little off in my 2006 F150. I got them to fit after some small adjusting.

Pros: great sound good price

Cons: don't fit exactly like they said, but close.

Great speaker to power off the head unit

Written By Negativeight, Upland, CA on Thursday, September 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Tight sound overall with an RMS power rating low enough to achieve this great sound straight from the head unit. Clean mids and crisp vocal reproduction. Misses slightly on the lows, but EQ these right and they're tough to beat for the price.

Pros: Great vocal reproduction Clean, tight sound No need for external amplification Good price

Cons: Misses slightly on the lows

These speakers are GREAT!!!. I replaced all four of my aged factory speakers in my 2006 Ford Explorer and WOW what a difference. I like the sound track from Tron Legacy and I heard every note crisply and clearly. They handled the bass tones extremely well. Installation in the factory location was super easy and NO modifications or hole drilling needed, they lined up with the factory holes, I would recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade there factory speakers

Pros: Great sound tone in all ranges. Easy installation

Cons: None

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" balanced dome tweeter and 7/16" dome super tweeter. Both tweeters are made of PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide), a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.
