For those looking for an inexpensive replacement 5" x 7" speaker or a simple upgrade from the factory speakers, consider the Sony XSR5743. These great speakers from Sony utilize materials and technology not found in traditional factory speakers and create an excellent aftermarket sound. The 35 watts RMS power handling is ideal for allowing the speakers to run directly off the headunit, while the 190 watt max gives plenty of room for peaking and protections against burps of power. The woofer is made from polypropylene for a smooth response, and the surround is treated cloth. Sony has designed a High Density Layered Diaphragm (HDLD) into the XSR5743 speakers for great linearity, smooth response, and deep bass. These 4-way speakers truly are full range with the tweeters and super tweeters. What makes the speakers even more versatile is the compatibility with 6" x 8" openings. Bottom line on the Sony XSR5743 speakers is that they are an excellent introduction into aftermarket or replacement speakers and don't come with a heavy price tag!

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.
5" x 7" (also mounts in most 6" x 8" locations)
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.
4-way
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.
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.
Polypropylene
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.
Treated Cloth
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.
190 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.
35 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".
87 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 - 23,000 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.
2-3/8"
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" x 7-1/4" 
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.
No

Smooth Kicking little tweeters!!!

September 7, 2010

I installed these in my fiance's brothers car (along with a pair of Sony explode 6x9's) to a Sony explode 4 channel amp & they sound Super Clean! They handle the wattage that the 6x9's do like a champ! I would definitely recommend these tweeters to anyone who's got bass, mids and is looking to add loud, crystal clear sound to their ride!

Nice speaker

April 5, 2010

I just recently purchased these speakers to replace a set of blown factory speakers. They are so much louder and clearer. I am amazed at how great they sound for such a low price. I am going to buy another pair soon to put in my back doors. If you want great speakers for a low price, then these are perfect.

Not so great if you dont have an amp

September 6, 2011

I put these in my pickup with no amp. Some reviews said you need an amp. They sound pretty bad without an amp. So bad I replaced them because I did not want to install an amp.

These speakers have been great for me.

Max Durability

March 25, 2011

I have had these speakers for over two years now and they are the best speakers I have ever owned. They sound great and play louder than any other speaker out there. I have them hooked up to a Pioneer head unit. There's no need for an amp to power these speakers as long as your head unit produces enough power.

good stock replacement speakers

March 10, 2011

These are good speakers for if your replacing your stock speakers sound good for highs and high mids but low mids are not as clear as my stock speakers but still sounds ok and these get a lot louder than my stock speakers and the lows are not that good but thats cause I have 2 12"s and these don't compare to those at all but overall good speaker on stock power or aftermarket deck power I would recommend these

great upgrade

February 21, 2011

My factory speakers needed to be replaced so i got 2 pairs of these speakers. Installation was fast and simple and the sound improvement was instant. I tried them first with the stock radio and the difference was very noticeable. If you want to upgrade your factory speakers on a budget, i definitely recommend these speakers.
