Customer Reviews for Sony XS-GS1621C GS-Series 6-1/2" 2-Way Component Speakers - Pair
The tweeter sounded great, but the woofer had absolutely no life above 600hz. Not exactly ideal with a crossover set to 5000hz.
Figured maybe I was underpowering the woofers, so I left the tweeters on the Sony amp, and put the woofers on a bridged 4 channel running 2x200 rms. This helped clean up the low end but no matter how much eq/rta I tried, they just wouldn't come to life.
I ended up having to add a midrange speaker(Italian Faital FE35 @ $30 each) and running the front 3 way active with a dsp. With the woofers crossed at 550hz, the system finally sounds decent.
Of course with the Sony headunit preamp being only 2V output, and their mini amp being the only car audio amp on sale without gain control, all gain adjustments had to be done through the dsp. Couple this with the Sony amp's signal noise ratio of 83db, and now there is an audible hiss out of the tweeters when not playing music.
What was originally supposed to be a 2 way passive budget build, turned into a 3 way active build. A build in which the Sony components are limited to the function of having the amp and crossovers serve as paperweights, the headunit is only there to feed a weak signal to the dsp, and the speakers cover the ultra wide range of 75-550hz (woofer) & 5500hz+ (tweeter). If it wasn't for Corona I would have given up a long time ago.
