XS-GS1720S

Two-way design

The Sony GS series speakers deliver incredible frequency response with outstanding dispersion and beautifully clear highs thanks to the MRC woofer, dome tweeter and integrated 2-way crossover.

XS-GS1720S

Aluminum dome tweeter

The GS series tweeters solve placement issues by providing adjustable angle positions to help create a direct path from the tweeter to your ears so you get the best high-frequency response.

XS-GS1720S

6-1/2" MRC woofer

The GS series woofers use Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) fibers for supremely light and extraordinarily rigid woofer cones. MRC woofer cones produce exceptional musical transients with little distortion compared to traditional cone materials.

XS-GS1720S

Integrated crossover

GS series speakers use precision crossovers to match the frequency response capabilities of the drivers. The 2-way, 5000 Hz crossover feature a 12 db/oct high-pass filter (HPF) and 6 dB/oct low-pass filter (LPF) to ensure smooth music transitions.

XS-GS1720S

High energy magnets

The GS series speakers use high energy magnets to control cone travel and power handling. The midrange woofer uses powerful Ferrite magnet while the aluminum dome tweeter uses rare earth, compact Neodymium magnets.

XS-GS1720S

Bi-amp design

Bi-amp speaker systems use separate power inputs for each component of the 2-way speaker system. This lets you drive the speaker system with dedicated power for the High Pass (HP) and Low Pass (LP) channels instead of sharing the power.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
GS (Sony)
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.
Pair
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.
1"
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.

Aluminum
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.
Mica Reinforced Cellular Glass-Fiber
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.
175 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.
75 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".
86 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).
45 - 36000 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.

No
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.
2-5/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-1/2" x 5-1/2" 
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

Excellent Sounding Speakers

August 18, 2014

I got these speakers on sale at Sonic Electronix to upgrade the factory speakers in my 2010 Subaru Outback. During the install, I had to do a little work around to get them to fit into the Subaru speaker spacers instead of drilling new holes in all 4 doors. Also, the installation of the tweeters would have gone easier if one of tweeters wasn't missing the internal mounting threads (again not a show stopper, but extra time spent on a work around). Once the speakers and the NVX Sound Dampening were installed, the speakers are a huge improvement to the factory speakers. I'm pushing them with an Alpine KPT-445U (4x45 W RMS). After only a week, the bass seems a little stiff, but I hope that will improve as the speakers break in. Overall sound clarity is outstanding and listening field within the car seems broader and more realistic. Bottomline: I'm glad I took the opportunity to purchase these speakers.

This component set is great !! The crossovers ore the best part. They are Bi-ampable if you choose to use that feature. I am using a soundstream PN4.520D to power them using the Bi-ampable option. All I can say is wow!!! they are the best set of components I have used to date.
