If you are looking for the best sound for your car, then you are looking at the component systems. They provide your vehicle with the best possible sound. The Sony XS-GTX1620S is a high quality component system that sound far better than those factory speakers.

The Sony XS-GTX1620S cone woofer features a Highly Oriented Polyolefine, also known as HOP. The HOP material is lighter and stronger that other materials such as polypropylene. This material results in a high quality sound and unmatched clarity. The well-damped woofer is an excellent choice in upgrading your car audio system to the system that you have always wanted!

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6-1/2"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way Component System
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Teteron
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Highly Oriented Polyolefin (HOP)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
260 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
60 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
88 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
40 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/4"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-5/8" x 5-5/8" 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

I'm very happy with this component speaker set. I payed half the price of comparable systems and the quality of the sound is great for the money. Shipping was fast and install was pretty simple.

This is the best pair of value-priced component speakers out there. They sound like I surely paid much more. If you are looking to replace your 6.5" factory speakers, this setup is great. Love the included crossovers.

Great set

January 21, 2010

I bought these to replace the speakers in our 2002 4runner. The tweeters fit flawlessly in the triangle door panel, it even had the screw in the middle that mounted perfectly where the old tweeter was. The woofers were certainly a lot more difficult but that's not the fault of the speakers, Toyota makes replacing the speakers very difficult as you either need to do what I did and custom cut and fab the old brackets to make new mounts, or find mounts somewhere. Either way you do it, these sound way better than the stock paper crap speakers that came with the car. The crossover box is about the size of a deck of cards if that's any help. I am very impressed and think these are a great deal.

excellent make

October 8, 2009

these speakers were a great buy. for the exact product at w******, they want double what i paid through sonicelectronix. the speakers have high clarity and compliment my hifonics subwoofer well. the tweeters that come with this product pick up the highs pretty well also. the only thing i am not big on, is the sony speaker covers. they just seemed too bulky to me. but that is personal preference. if i needed more speakers, sony is the way i would go.

its ok

February 7, 2010

Well, I have the matching sony XM-4S amp to power these. The amp gives off 50w RMS @4ohm, these speakers are rated for 60watt rms. So its just about right.

lets cut to the point, the highs sound good on these, not overly ear piercing and annoying, but just right, but the mids and lows are lacking.

Maybe its my enclosure, but I am not completely satisfied with them.

The product itself feels like a quality item from Sony. However, at this price I guess i don't have much to complain about, but just be aware when you get these.

December 9, 2009

so at first these sounded terrible, but that was because I had 2 sets of speakers running in parallel off the stock head. They all sounded bad, and the bass was flat. Once I took the other speakers out, these really shined. The bass is nice, the tweeters are clearer than the ones I had. Set up is easy, though the stickers for the tweeters were ineffective and the bracket is too big to mount on the mirror part. You have 3 mounting option for the tweeters, which is nice. I'm very happy with this purchase. I'm even thinking about a 2nd pair for the rear.

November 16, 2009

I shopped all over locally and on line. Locally they were way over twice as much as Sonic Eletronix and they sound great. you can hear highs and lows, everything really clear. I have had them for about 6 months in my subburban and I like to crank it up. Great buy for the money and my budget.

December 19, 2009

I ordered these speakers from sonic and i was a little skeptical but when i hooked them up they sounded really good, they have low distortion at high volume so it sounds crisp and clear the tweeters sound amazing and they don't overwhelm your ears. I love these sonys, i would recommend them to anyone looking for good sound for a cheap price.
