Our take on the Sony XS-GT5738F

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-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.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.

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" 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.

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

What a difference between factory and these! Much clearer crisper highs/mids and a lot more bass. Very easy to install, and instructions that come with it showing you how to pull the panels off of the doors is great as well!
Pros:
easy install, great sound for the price

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.

Great Speakers

Written By richjr2003, Jacksonville, FL on Wednesday, January 15, 2014
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

Seem to be decent speakers. Bass is a little weak, but that is another story. Very easy to install and the overall sound quality puts the stock speakers to shame.

Great Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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
