About the Sony XS-692ES

Alexander H.

An audiophile experience in the car

Sony has a worldwide reputation for making great audio easy to access. So it's always exciting when they decide to make a product that's focused on premium car audio, like their flagship XS-692ES 6"x9" 2-way component speaker system. I carved out some time to experience their Mobile ES Series for myself at Crutchfield HQ's Car Audio Listening Lab. Using Hi-res Audio streaming service Qobuz, I listened to some of my favorite albums from female vocalists like Bonnie Raitt and Kate Bush, soundscapes from Daft Punk, and hip-hop from MF DOOM. It's no exaggeration to say that with every track, I heard texture and detail I'd never heard before. All of those small revelations added up to a bigger, deeper feeling — I felt closer to the music — like I was "there." If you're hungering for an audiophile-grade experience in the car, these Hi-res Audio-compatible speakers from Sony are a wonderful way to start.

Woofer

Specialized woofer

Sony builds the woofer cones of this 6"x9" component speaker system from a specialized, mica-reinforced cellular aramid fiber. Developed in-house, this lightweight, rigid material minimizes distortion and enhances overall low-frequency response. Sony's unique, notch-edge surround helps with responsiveness and shrugging off wear and tear over the life of the speaker

Audiophile tweeter

The system's synthetic fabric dome component tweeter delivers frequencies up to 40,000 Hz that, even though they are above the range of human hearing, reveal more texture and detail in your high-resolution audio files and add more realism and atmosphere to instruments and vocals.

Premium crossover networks

Sony includes impressive crossovers that help the included speakers do their very best work. Low-resistance film capacitors help the tweeters achieve clarity in the high range. Additionally, Sony builds exciting tools like gain control and the ability to bi-amp the included components. 

The sum of its parts

Sony's meticulous approach to stamping out distortion wherever it might lurk continues with nearly every other facet of this system. The structure of the woofer's five-beam frame helps the dispersion of unwanted resonance and the speaker's integrated dynamic air diffuser promotes essential cooling when the going gets hot. That means you can feed the Mobile ES Series component system plenty of power from an aftermarket amp and always count on immersive, natural sound.

Product Research

Features

Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the higher frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.

Tweeter Mounting: Flat and angled surface mount housings are included for tweeter mounting. In either case the tweeter is secured to the housing using the included M4 machine screws. The tweeters can also be flush mounted, but no bracket is included. Often the tweeters can be bolted to the factory brackets using the same M4 machine screws, or a custom bracket can be created using something like our Universal Back-Strap.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Width Frame Length Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 2.418" 2.418" 2.098" 0.125" 0.875"
Flat Surface Mount 2.57" 2.57" N/A 1.07" Screw Depth
Angled Surface Mount 2.575" 2.875" N/A 1.4" Screw Depth

Crossovers: Each crossover has high-pass and low-pass outputs with a 5 kHz crossover point and 6 dB/octave slope. A switch inside each crossover allows you to set the tweeter output level according to your system requirements and personal preference; choose 0 dB (factory setting) or +3dB. (A 2mm hex key is required to remove the crossovers' tops, not included.) The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. There is a mounting hole in the base of each crossover.

Bi-amp Inputs: The 2-way crossovers have separate inputs for the woofer and tweeter; this lets you drive the system with dedicated power for the separate speaker elements, instead of sharing power. If the system is powered using only two amplifier channels, the woofer and tweeter inputs should be shorted together using the included jumpers.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4-3/8"
  • Width: 2-5/8"
  • Height: 1-3/8"

Wiring: No wire is included with these speakers, so it will need to be ordered separately. Both the woofers and tweeters have male quick-slide terminals. The woofer terminals are 0.205" wide (positive) and 0.110" wide (negative), and both tweeter terminals are 0.110" wide.

Specification Note: Sony's rated power spec for the XS-692ES is 90 watts (derived using IEC 60268-5 standards). In the manual they also list the CTA 2031 compliant RMS power as 110 watts. We've adopted the 110 watt RMS rating because CTA 2031 is the more common rating system.

Customer Q&A

2 questions already asked

Q
If I run one channel to the biamp inputs and jump from - to - and + to + like the manual shows as standard does that make it a 2ohm load? And if so will that compromise sound quality?
jimmy  Feb 12, 2023

A
This does not make it a 2-ohm load, no worries there James. Using the crossover input jumpers also does not negatively affect sound quality. If you are not bi-amping it is the recommended way to connect to the fantastic Sony XS-692ES Mobile ES series speakers. Bi-amping is advised for absolutely the best possible performance.
bo  Feb 12, 2023 (Staff)
Q
When using the biamp inputs. What are the individual ratings (impedance and RMS power handling) for the tweeter and woofer?
bernardo  Oct 09, 2022
1 answer
A
Even in bi-amp mode, each driver is still rated for handle up to 110w RMS (CTA 2031 rating). Each driver will also present a 4-ohm impedance.
