Sony bass for small spaces

In recent years, compact powered subwoofers have become popular for their combination of close-up bass heft and small size relative to their sound.

Sony bass for small spaces

In recent years, compact powered subwoofers have become popular for their combination of close-up bass heft and small size relative to their sound. Now Sony has applied the knowledge acquired from decades of experience to bring you the XS-AW8 powered sub, offering Sony sound quality in an easy-to-fit package.

Tough enough

With enclosure height of only 3-1/8", the XS-AW8 is designed to fit under the driver's seat of most vehicles. Its specially-designed shallow-profile subwoofer combines with the rugged sealed cast-aluminum enclosure to deliver the tight, powerful bass response that brings your music to life. The amplifier includes a durable heat-sink to keep the amp and speaker cool without distracting vibration and distortion.

Bring your music to life

The built-in class A/B amp slings 75 watts RMS to the 8" sub, giving you enough low end to feed your senses without overloading your ears. The amp features Sony's proprietary power IC for high fidelity and enhanced dynamic range. The amp connections and controls are all mounted on a single panel on one end of the enclosure, making wiring and adjustments simple. The package also features a wired remote for handy control, along with line-level and speaker-level inputs that make it compatible with most car systems.

When you're looking for big sound in a small package, Sony's XS-AW8 will bring you the performance you need in a compact package, complete with the quality and workmanship you expect. 

Important Note: This Sony sub includes a wiring kit, but the 13' power wire has no in-line fuse. If you don't have a fuse holder to insert within 18" of the battery terminal, we recommend that you buy this 12-gauge wiring kit so you'll have everything you need.

Features

Wired Remote Control: The wired remote control provides convenient control over the sub's output level. The remote control can be mounted using the included bracket or adhesive backed pad.

Mounting Options: The four mounting brackets attach at the corners of the enclosure, and can extend in either direction. They add approximately 1⅜" to the width or 1⅝" to the depth, and a twentieth of an inch to the height.

Signal Input: The XS-AW8 has line level RCA inputs and speaker level inputs.

Crossover: The low pass crossover point is continuously variable from 50 Hz to 150 Hz using a rotary control.

Phase: A 2-position switch allows reversing the sub's phase (Normal/Reverse).

Wiring Harness: The included wiring harness covers power, ground, remote turn-on, and speaker level input. The wire length varies by function:

  • Power: 13' (14-gauge)
  • Ground: 13' (14-gauge)
  • Remote Turn-on: 10'
  • Speaker Level Input: 10'

Note: The 13' power wire has no in-line fuse, so you must insert a fuse holder (and fuse) within 18" of the battery terminal.

Q
Can it be use in a 2006 jeep wrangler SE?
[ Henry  Aug 23, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
I installed it on my 2005 TJ. I used a fuse tap and tied into the existing subwoofer fuse slot in the fuse block even though my Jeep did not come with a factory subwoofer. Be sure to use the head unit wire with that turns on/off a subwoofer.
[ ALLEN AUSTIN  Aug 23, 2021 ]
Q
If I were to use two of these, can I use a splitter to use one gain controller for both units?
[ Taylor  May 12, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
Typically there's not any splitters that will work with the bass control knobs due to the type of pinout it uses. However you may want to reach out to the manufacturer to see if they might have an adapter you can use. You can contact Sony's parts department at 800-488-7669.
[ Allison  May 27, 2021 ]  Staff
A
I use a splitter to feed the signal to them and use the supplied gain controls for each. If your head unit can control the volume of fhe output feed then you will have control over both simultaneously.
