Into the cone zone

The XS-W122ES features a Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) cone, created for high rigidity and light weight. This material combines a layer of mica flakes and paper pulp with a honeycomb-shaped aramid fiber core, for a speaker cone that's 10 times stronger than polypropylene. You'll hear cleaner, more realistic bass with smoother, more natural sound characteristics, along with powerful bass that stays tight at the highest volume levels. In short, this sub is all about accuracy.

Intelligent design

The woofer surround features another proprietary Sony technology — distinctive curved notches to ensure that the cone stays on track. The acoustically-optimized double-layered spider maximizes power handling, with a profile designed for more rapid and precise cushioning of the speaker cone. The sub's "Five-beam Frame" design virtually eliminates resonance, while its integrated Dynamic Air Diffuser ensures efficient air circulation to keep things cool when the music gets hot.

Product Research

Features

Specifications: Sony's rated power spec for the XS-W122ES is 400 watts (derived using IEC 60268-5 standards). In the manual they also list the CTA 2031 compliant RMS power as 500 watts. We've adopted the 500 watt RMS rating because CTA 2031 is the more common rating system.

Spring Posts: The spring post wire terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, and bare wire up to 10-gauge. The binding posts are spaced too far apart to accept standard dual banana plugs (¾").

Enclosure Compatibility: The XS-W122ES is compatible with either a sealed or ported enclosure.

  • Sealed Box Volume: The ideal sealed box volume is 0.84 ft³.
  • Ported Box Volume: The ideal ported box volume is 1.34 ft³ with a 3⅜" diameter and 11⅛" long port.

Trim Ring: When using the included cosmetic trim ring the dimensions change slightly:

  • Top Mount:
    • Flange Height: 0.8"
    • Mounting Height: 0.8"
  • Bottom Mount:
    • Depth: 6.696"
