Enjoy powerful sound anywhere
Enjoy deep, punchy sound wherever you like with your EXTRA BASS™ speaker. Dual passive radiators work together with the 2-way speaker system to enhance low-end tones, giving bass a boost.
X-Balanced Speaker Unit enhances sound quality and power
Developed by Sony, the X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high sound quality and powerful sound pressure for a richer, deeper, more rewarding listening experience.
How the X-Balanced Speaker Unit works
Unlike the circular diaphragm in a conventional speaker unit, the newly developed X-Balanced Speaker Unit in the XB43 features an almost rectangular diaphragm. This not only maximises the area of speaker diaphragm, increasing sound pressure for more punchy bass – it also reduces driver excursion while maintaining the same sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Tweeter improves vocal clarity
The XB43’s 2-way speaker system combines a woofer for low to mid-range frequencies with a dedicated tweeter for the higher range frequencies. The result is exceptional vocal clarity.
Mica Reinforced Cellular speaker cone and dust cap
The rigid and lightweight Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) speaker cone and dust cap contribute to the sound quality.
Side passive radiators
The layout of the side passive radiators has been optimised to reproduce clear bass sound.
