GTR Series 10" 4-ohm subwoofer

Our take on the Sony XS-GTR101L by Crutchfield's Dave Delamere
Five sides equals big bass
The design of the Sony's GTR Series XS-GTR101L 10" 4-ohm subwoofer not only catches your eye, but it also helps give you better bass. The five-sided woofer cone reduces standing waves, which can diminish the bass output. The unique "dimple" design makes the cone more rigid so it'll hold its shape at high output levels, and it reduces the cone's weight so it's more responsive. You'll enjoy tight, accurate bass.
This XS-GTR101L handles up to 370 watts RMS, impressive for a sub in this price range. Even though the cone has five sides, this Sony still fits in a standard round opening in either a ported or sealed enclosure.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 275 and 550 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

P5 Cone Design: The five-sided polypropylene cone uses a unique dimpled design; this stiffens the cone, resulting in lower distortion.
Surround: To improve cone motion control, the surround is made of ThermoPlastic Olefin (TPO), a combination of rubber, polypropylene, polyethylene, and a reinforcing filler.
Binding Posts: The binding post wire terminals will accept pin connectors, spade lugs, single banana plugs, and bare wire up to 8 gauge. The binding posts are spaced too far apart to accept dual banana plugs.
Enclosure Compatibility: This woofer can provide extended bass in sealed and ported enclosures:
- Recommended Sealed Enclosure Volume: 0.84 ft³
- Recommended Ported Enclosure Volume: 1.37 ft³ using one 4" diameter x 9-7/8" long port

Yes it will fit into a slim box but the smaller the box is, keeps the sub from operating to its full potential [ Drew Jun 11, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Jun 01, 2015 ] Staff
