Sony XS-GSW121D 12-inch 4-ohm 400W Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer
The Sony XS-GSW121D 12-inch subwoofer features a unique mica-reinforced cellular glass fiber material that’s foamed in a honeycomb fiber base, making it 10 times more rigid than a polypropylene cone. Sony formulated a surface layer for the cone that’s made up of mica flake, synthetic fiber, and pulp. creating an extremely light and rigid cone that’s able to move faster and more accurately. You’ll hear greater precision and lower distortion, and the dual 4-ohm voice coils allow this speaker to run at 2 ohms for even greater firepower.
Serious power handling for this price range
A rugged rubber surround helps the Sony XS-GSW121D sub handle up to 500 watts RMS, while a double-layered spider supports the voice coil for a 55% increase in cone travel over last year’s model. The Sony XS-GSW121D is equally at home in a ported or sealed enclosure, so you can choose the sound you want for your system. And best of all, Sony backs up these workhorse subs with a cool 3-year warranty. If you’ve got the room, Sony’s got the boom.
MRC Woofer Cone
The Sony XS-GSW121D uses a honeycomb design MRC cone (Mica Reinforced Cellular glass fiber composite) to reduce weight and increase rigidity, delivering deep bass response.
Dual Voice Coils
For increased system flexibility, the Sony XS-GSW121D has two 4Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω load.
