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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
