NEW PRODUCT – 20W 4 Ohm Full Range Speaker – Sony XS-GTF1027
NEW PRODUCT – 20W 4 Ohm Full Range Speaker – Sony XS-GTF1027: Listen up! This high power 4″ diameter speaker will amp up any audio project where you need loud sound! It is 4 ohm impedance, rated for 30W continuous power. (This thing is really loud) It also has four handy mounting tabs 3 inches apart, and a grill that fits on top. The grill is to protect the cones, and is not necessary for use.
This speaker has a nice wide range of 60Hz – 24kHz, which is pretty good for a speaker this large. Originally designed for use in car doors, but we think its good for any project where you need to fill a room. We played some David Bowie through two of these speakers using our MAX9744 amplifier running from 12V power and it could easily fill 5,000 sq ft with sound. For best use, place into some sort of enclosed cabinet.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
