Better sound thanks to better materials

The XS-GT1338F 5-1/4" 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" 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.

I have an aftermarket head unit supplying 50 watts, but these are too small to produce any low range at all. Mids and highs were adequate. Returned them with no issues for another set that sounds better. Great job Crutchfield, keep up your excellent customer experience!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers for my rear doors in my chevy blazer, with the brackets and wiring harness that came with them made the installation quick and easy. The price was fair and the shipping was guaranteed for 3 days and they arrived in 3 days at 11:00 pm. Wishing I would have gotten a little bigger speaker but these work just fine. The sound is crisp and clear and they sound great. Overall I'm happy with these speakers!!!

Pros: Quick and easy installation, great quality sound.

Cons: None that I have found.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install in the soundbar of my '05 Wrangler TJ. I mean it took 5-10 minutes max from start to finish. I wish the Sony grills fit, but the factory ones are OK. Easy wire up with the included Crutchfield harnesses. These sound SO much better than the factory speakers! I put 4 X 6 Kickers up front and the improvement with these behind my head is stunning. Now to replace the factory subwoofer! Quality of these Sony speaker is really high. I've been using their components since the early 80s and all their stuff is still carefully made, packaged, and easy to use. Fantastic price for a great set of speakers.

Pros: Price, quality, sound, ease of installation

Cons: I wish I could have made the grills fit the Jeep soundbar!

Installed in my 2002 Dodge Durango

Pros: Constructed well, solid speakers. Good to great sound.

Cons: Mid range and bass could be stronger, but it is acceptable/good as is. This may or may not be the case because I'm using the stock radio. You may have better results from a new radio and amplifier.

Pros: Fit, Sound Quality, frequency range very good and responsive at all levels

Cons: They're too small, but that's not their fault. Jeep made the space way too small!

OctaveMandoMan from Harrisville, WV on 6/12/2014

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are great upgrades. I put them in my 06 Chevy 2500HD. Installation was easy, especially using the included instructions and adaptors. Crutchfield is great for supplying expertise and hardware and still keeping their prices within a couple of dollars of other online sellers that don't have detailed instructions or a technical line to call. These Sonys deliver crisp midrange and highs. Low end is adequate and as expected for a small speaker.

Pros: Good sound at a good price. Definite upgrade over the OEM speakers.

Cons: None

It's amazing that everything is included on my order,like the wire harness and instructions that usually you have to buy separately when buying somewhere else.

Pros: Kits are all included. No need to buy the wiring separately. It's like when you buy a furniture in Ikea you just need to follow instructions and your good to go :)

Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Crystal clear sony

KMCSNY from Jamaica, NY. on 5/10/2014

2005 Chrysler Town and Country
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are excellent speakers. They have good clarity and they are efficient. I installed then in my dash being powered by the factory radio. Since I have a six plus sub setup I did not need or expect any bass out of them, I you need some mid bass I suggest you look at component speakers. If you have larger speakers providing bass, you will love the midrange and highs from these speakers. I brought them to replaces an excellent pair of Kenwood speakers that were 8 years old and were giving me some problems. These Sony speakers play much louder and I had to turn down the trebble a bit.

Pros: Clarity, Tweeters give strong highs,

Cons: None found or expected.

Replaced the original factory speakers in a 1999 Chev Blazer. The new speakers included all necessary hardware, instructions and wiring adapters and were a breeze to install. The sound quality of the new speakers is like night/day compared to the OEM speakers - should have done this upgrade years ago. Ended up replacing all four OEM speakers.



Great replacement

Jake from Atlanta, GA on 1/20/2014

2006 Chevrolet Colorado
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replacements for the stock door speakers. The instructions were very helpful which in turn made them easy to install. Since I use a separate amp/sub, I installed condensers (a.k.a. Bass blockers) on these and the results have been FANTASTIC. I'm only pushing 15w-20w per speaker, but because all the lows are cut, they complete the sound spectrum along with my sub.

Pros: Great Sound and price.

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Ease of installation


Good for the price

BloxOx from Cookeville, TN on 12/26/2013

My car didn't come with rear speakers so I wanted to fill that void. These Sony speakers did the trick. Not as good as what is in the front, thinking about switching them. I should have read the reviews first because i thought these were going to preform better. I agree with the base not being there but it is a small speaker. Good for the price.

Pros: Price, ease of install

Cons: wanted better bass.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers have impressive sound for the price. Crystal clear highs and mids. I have them mounted in the dash and am very happy with them. Don't expect any real bass from these, but thats not why you buy these, they work extremely well to deliver clear & rich mids and highs in concert with 6.5" 3-ways elsewhere , and a sub to pick up lower frequencies. For the price they cannot be beat.

Pros: Crystal clear highs and mids & price

Cons: Little bass but thats not why you buy these

1995 BMW 530I
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a bmw 5 series and these speakers fit and sound great in them. Being only 5.25" speakers obviously they are not over the top good, but for the price you pay, they are well worth it. That being said, the speakers are not what really impressed me, what impressed me was the crutchfield customer service. In the first pair of speakers i received one of the speakers was actually defective, so I thought, oh crap I probably got screwed. But in reality I called customer service and within a 5 minute conversation, crutchfield shipped out a new pair and I was taken care of very quickly. So props to you crutchfield. and props to having great quality gear too.

Pros: Speakers sound great for their size price customer service

Cons: bass only 5.25" so not huge sound

Great stock replacement tiny speakers

Tilepusher from Las Vegas, NV on 8/6/2013

1993 Nissan Hardbody
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

How can you justify the sound of a tiny 5.25" speaker? You know that they are never going to have any kind of real bass. People who pay big bucks for a full range 5.25" speaker are crazy or crazy rich. With that out of the way, these are actually very good 5.25'" speakers for the money. I love the clarity & highs they produce. I am using them in the door panel of my 20 year old truck above the factory placed 6.5" Sony XS-GT1638F speakers. That's right. I have 2 sets of Sony 3-way speakers in the door of my truck. Because these speakers are so small in every dimension, I was able to fit them in the doors with just cutting the door panel. Since this is a work beater, I don't want to lose any cab space with a sub woofer or any kind of behind the seat box. For their intended use, for the money, these speakers are a great choice.

Pros: Small size, price, nice highs & attractive grill

Cons: Lack of bass

Solid but not amazing

Chris from Aurora co on 8/6/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a replacement for factory speakers. Did a nice job, the mounts aren't perfect but they work. You may have to drill another hole for perfect placement in the plastic mounts. Good sound quality.

Pros: Clear, overall good speakers. Worth their cost.

Cons: Nothing amazing. Great factory replacement.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My ten year old OEM speakers were trashed I'm my truck so I bought two pairs of these to replace them. The extras that Crutchfield supplies for free such as the mounting plates and wire harnesses worked perfectly and made the install very easy. Their instructions for replacement were clearly written and accurate. The sound of these speakers is better than I remember the infinity speakers sounding when they were new. I'm happy to have my system running well again. It makes the commute so much nicer. Thanks

Pros: Clear sound Easy install

Cons: None

Very nice speakers for the price

For the price, these speakers have a very nice sound. The music is crisp and clear. They are 10 times better then the tin sounding stock speakers in my VX Passat.

Pros: Great sound for such a small speaker. No distortion at all when I turn the volume way up.

Cons: None yet

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put these in my 05 dodge ram. They are just a little better than my stock. but just barely. I know I could send them back but i've already got them in and dont feel like taking them back out. was looking for a good sounding speaker with a little bit of a bass punch (not booming). But these cant handle any bass at all. actually my stock handled bass better than these. I dont want to boom but i like a little bit of punch. I guess now i'll look for a small amplified bass tube. didn't want to go that route but now i have to.

Pros: Good mids and highs.

Cons: Cant handle bass what so ever.

every good product

Product Research


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" 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.
