The Sony® GS series speakers deliver incredible frequency response with outstanding dispersion
and beautifully clear highs thanks to the MRC woofer, soft dome tweeter and integrated 2-way
Aluminum dome tweeter
The GS series speakers feature an aluminum dome tweeter to deliver incredible high-frequency
6.5" 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.
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.
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.
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.
The XS-GS1720 speakers are rated for 75 Watts, 110 Watts RMS (CEA 2031 rated) and can handle
peak power of 320 Watts.
