Enjoy deep, punchy sound wherever you like with your EXTRA BASS™ speaker. Dual passive radiators work together with full-range speakers to enhance low-end tones, giving bass a boost.
Developed by Sony, the X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high sound quality and powerful sound pressure for a richer, deeper, more rewarding listening experience.
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 maximizes the area of the 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.
The rigid and lightweight Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) speaker cone and dust cap contribute to the sound quality.
The layout of the side passive radiators has been optimized to reproduce clear bass sound.
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.
Thanks to the IP67 rating, you can take your speaker to the beach, the forest, the desert, or wherever you like—the SRS-XB43 will keep on playing, no matter how dusty the surface.
The speakers of the SRS-XB43 are carefully designed to give you a real three-dimensional experience. Our angled speakers with DSP technology send your music to a wider area, creating a festival vibe, wherever you are.
Hit the LIVE SOUND button and hear your music in a whole new way. Bring your party to life with a unique three-dimensional sound experience — creating festival vibes wherever you go.
With an IP67 rating, your speaker is waterproof and salt water resistant—so you've no worries using it by the sea or the pool—and there's no problem washing it either
