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.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
P5 Cone Design: The five-sided XS-GS120LD uses an MRC cone (Mica
Reinforced Cellular glass fiber composite) to reduce weight and increase rigidity,
delivering deep bass response.
Rubber Surround: The Hash Marks on the rubber Stroke Stabilizer
surround provide added stability.
Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the
woofer has two 4 ohm voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel,
the woofer presents a 2 ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the
woofer presents an 8 ohm load.
Binding Posts: The binding post wire terminals will accept
pin connectors, spade lugs, single banana plugs, and bare wire up to 10 gauge.
The binding posts are spaced too close together to accept dual banana plugs.
Enclosure Compatibility: This woofer can provide extended
bass in sealed and ported enclosures:
- Sealed Enclosure Volume: 0.77 cubic
- Ported Enclosure Volume: 1.13 cubic
feet using one 3" diameter x 11-3/4" long port
Specification Note: Sony's rated power spec for the XS-GS120LD
is 400 watts (derived using IEC 60268-5 standards). They also list the CEA 2031
compliant RMS power as 520 watts. We've adopted the 380 watt rating simply because
it's the more conservative figure.
