Sony unveils smaller Xplod subs and amps for trucks and smaller vehicles
Las Vegas, Nevada – For in-car music buffs who want better sound but don’t have room to spare, Sony Electronics unveiled the Xplod Slim Series of compact amplifiers and subwoofers at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. These small subs and amps provide installation flexibility in compact cars and trucks where space is limited.
“Research shows that more than 1.4 million F150, Silverado and Ram pick-up trucks were sold from January through September 2006, which is five times more than the Toyota Corolla,” said Brennan Mullin, general manager for mobile electronics at Sony Electronics. “We have just opened the door for both truck and compact-car owners who want to install subs and amps behind or under the seat.”
Excluding their black enclosure, Sony’s Slim Series subwoofers measure less than three inches deep and incorporates Xplod’s best-selling P5 subwoofer design. Offering high sound output, these subs push out 1200W and 1500W max for the ten- and twelve-inch sub, respectively.
At approximately 8.8 inches long, 7.8 inches wide and 1.7 inches high, the Sony four channel XM-4S amplifier and one-channel XM-1S amplifier are small enough to fit under the front seat of most vehicles.
