Better sound thanks to better materials

The XS-GT1638F 6-1/2" 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 1/4" supertweeter that reproduce lively highs, adding in the details that make the instruments and vocals sound true to life. Grilles are included.

Product Research

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" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter. A 1/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome super tweeter further reinforces the high frequency output. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

What size magnets are on the Sony XS-GT 1638F? I can see no specifications what is the depth or how many inches can a speaker protrude into the opening? For my vehicle 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier four-door (front door speakers)

The magnet is 3"round if that's what your wanting to no an speaker is about 2 1/2" deep they sound good to me
[ TONY  Jan 19, 2015 ]

These fit fine in my 2002 Mini Cooper front doors. If the Crutchfield web site or sales advisor recommends these then they will fit.
[ MICHAEL J  Jan 18, 2015 ]
Q
will these speakers work with a basic sync equipped ford focus radio? Its not the my ford touch just the basic package.
[ Mackenzie  Dec 08, 2014 ]

These speakers are designed to work with factory stereos. However, you will want to be sure to use the online vehicle selector to ensure that they are a good fit your particular vehicle.

Q
I have put back into my honda civic 96 the original car radio. Will it run both 2 and 3 way speakers?
[ Kb  Oct 23, 2014 ]
3 answers
A
Thanks Michael. One more question, will the 3-way sound better or about the same?
[ Kb  Oct 24, 2014 ]
A
It will work but may not sound as good as it did with the other system.
[ TONY  Oct 24, 2014 ]
A
Yes of course. 2-way and 3-way speakers only refer to the way the speaker is set up. 2-way has a seperate woofer and tweeter for lows and highs. 3-way adds a separate midrange. Your car stereo only sees one speaker. Because there is usually a crossover built into the speaker to separate the frequencies as needed. Your radio does not care what kind of speaker is in there
[ MICHAEL J  Oct 24, 2014 ]
Q
How does these speakers compare to the Pioneer TS-G1644R? I ask because the Pioneer is rated just as well as the Sony, and the Pioneer is only a 2way speaker..
[ Andre  Feb 13, 2014 ]
5 answers
A
Both compare equally. I placed the Sony speakers in the front door panels of my 1990 Honda Hatchback and the Pioneer's in the rear. Both provided solid crisp sound at high volume with little distortion. Both provide excellent value and sound.
[ JOSEPH W  Feb 18, 2014 ]
A
Well, I bought the sonys because they were 3 way speakers and in my pilot I would be losing the factory subwoofer in the back and the tweeters in the dash very far up by the bottom of the windshield.....so I figured having a 3-way in each of my 4 doors would be alright and I am very pleased....I would buy them again anytime. hope this helps, I only know enough about car audio to get myself in trouble....:-)
[ CHRIS  Feb 14, 2014 ]

I have not used the Pioneer's but these Sony speakers are pretty good. I replaced the stock speakers in the front door of my 2002 Mini Cooper with these. they are an exact fit replacement and came with wiring adapters. (thank you Crutchfield) It was very easy to install them. I use the stock Mini head unit and the sound is fantastic. Don't expect seat shaking bass with these but the midrange and high end is very clean even with the stock head unit.

We still have new in box, we sold the SUV they were going in . Sorry

I dont know Pioneer TS-'s but SOny works fine with any 4x50W stereo Good Luck

Q

ok, do they produce good sound and bass? i want relatively inexpensive speakers (speakers only) that produce good sound and bass without a sub.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
What is the difference between Sony XS-GT1638F 6.5 speakers and Sony GTF1638 6.5 speakers. I've found both on web, same specs. Are they the same (mistake in product code?) or different?
[ Brian  Dec 31, 2013 ]
1 answer
A
We don't carry the other model, so I can't say for sure the differences. However, in looking at the other speakers online it appears they may not have the PEI tweeter or super tweeter. I'd recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss the speakers in more detail.

Q
I've used the OutfitMyCar tool and both speaker sizes come up 5-1/4" and 6-1/2". What is the difference? Will they both fit my 2009 Mini Cooper S?
[ Geri  Dec 05, 2013 ]
1 answer
A
Both sizes will fit. The smaller 5.25" speakers will require a mounting bracket to fit in the larger opening. There appear to be a couple of restriction that will limit the number of 6.5" speakers that will fit your vehicle. A quick call or chat with an Advisor will help determine the best speakers for your system.
[ Jeff  Dec 05, 2013 ]  Staff

Will these speakers sound good with a pioneer radio? or does it have to be a sony radio?

These speakers will work just fine with a Pioneer radio. Feel free to reach out to an Advisor by phone or chat to discuss what will best fit your vehicle and match your current system.
