5-1/4" 3-way car speakers
Our take on the Sony XS-GT1338F by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Upgrade your factory speakers
Are your car's factory speakers sounding a little flat? Replace them with these Sony GT Series speakers, and you'll hear the full impact of your music, along with lots of little details you may not have heard before. Bass will be punchy, and vocals will sound more lifelike. Your commute will be more enjoyable than ever before.
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.
Great sounding 3 way speaker! Everything needed for a perfect OEM replacement installation.

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.
