MRC Aramid-Fibre Matrix Woofer

The main speaker diaphragm on the XS-162ES is crafted from Sony’s unique Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) material. This rigid but lightweight driver allows for a much more precise response than conventional driver materials, for smoother and more natural sound characteristics.

Optimal formulation

Embedding MRC in a unique matrix with aramid fibres suppresses diaphragm resonance and minimizes distortion—not only in the lows, but also in the mid and higher frequencies. The result is sound that is powerful at all frequencies and uncommonly clean—even at high volume.

Separated Notch Edge Surround

The woofer surround features another proprietary Sony technology, with distinctive curved notches improving the vertical amplitude symmetry, for dramatically reduced distortion and enhanced clarity.

Five-beam Frame Structure and Dynamic Air Diffuser

The Five-beam Frame design disperses resonance while the integrated Dynamic Air Diffuser ensures efficient air circulation for smooth cone travel and cooling of the voice coil.

Progressive Height Rate Spider

The acoustically optimized spider allows for higher power handling and airflow, with a profile designed for more rapid and precise cushioning of the speaker cone.

Phase plug

The resonance damping phase plug on the XS-162ES woofer helps realize ideal frequency response, right up to the crossover point with the matched tweeters. A rigid aluminum bobbin and Dynamic Air Diffuser further support the speaker’s wide frequency response, for controlled and dynamic bass delivery.

Tweeters to hit the high notes

Compatible with High-Resolution Audio, a soft-dome tweeter diaphragm is directly attached on the voice coil, designed to cover your music’s ultra-high ends, with a frequency range extending up to 40 kHz.

Bi-amp-capable crossover with gain selector

The audiophile-grade crossover features an optimal, lower-resistance film capacitor for smooth high-end. Its bi-amp-capable design mitigates current distortion to the tweeter when running the woofer with high input levels. A dedicated gain selector helps keep balance of woofer and tweeter signal levels, and enables tweeter level adjustment even when driving the components from a single amplifier.
