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.
Woofers: The woofers are made of Highly Oriented Polyolefine
(H.O.P.) plus aramid fiber. Using high-tech fibers aligned under extreme pressure,
Sony's exclusive H.O.P. is lighter & stronger than polypropylene. The result
is greater linearity, smoother response, and better sound.
Stroke Stabilizer Surround: Sony developed the Stroke Stabilizer
Surround to take advantage of the quick transient response and low weight of a thin
surround, along with the superior back-pressure resistance of a thick surround. Radial
ridges of thicker material are added along the surround, with the inner side handling
the detailed strokes, and the entire surround resisting the back-pressure during higher
power passages. This balance results in a speaker with high power handling, accuracy
throughout the power range, and low distortion.
Midrange: Each speaker has a 1-7/16" PEI (Poly-Ether Imide)
balanced dome midrange for fast transients with lower distortion.
Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 7/16" dome tweeter and a
11/32" dome super tweeter for a wide soundstage. Both the tweeter and super
tweeter are made of PEI (Poly-Ether Imide).
Mounting: The speakers can be mounted in a variety of 6-1/2"
and 6-3/4" openings.
