Sony SRS XG300 Specs Watts

This speaker is a medium power, portable boombox system. The Sony SRS XG300 has enough output watts in the specs to fill a living room or yard. It plays big sounding tunes that reach far.

But what does the number of watts a wireless speaker has, tell us about how good it is?  Firstly, the watt is a measure of how much power the speaker consumes or outputs.  Plus, this metric is a convenient measure. E.g. Generally, speakers with more watts play louder than those with less. Yes, they do cost more, have bigger, heavier batteries and chargers. Plus they have larger drivers and magnets. Yet they offer greater dynamic range and have a deeper bass response. Furthermore, the models that do stereo offer a bigger soundstage and better imaging.

Thus in general, the more powerful the speaker, the better it sounds, even at lower volume. You get more crispness due to higher accuracy reproduction of the bass, midrange, and treble. Plus, more reserve power often means less clipping artifacts too. So, the speaker’s max watts output is a primary indicator of speaker quality and performance.  And as such, this value is of great interest to audiophiles and novice listeners alike.

In this case, the Sony XG300, as a common size portable BT speaker, is a decently loud model. Its watts can fill a room with clean sounding music.

Sony SRS XG300 Specs Watts: Restrictions

    1. The system tries to conserve battery power as the battery get close to total depletion.  The XG 300 does this by reducing the audio output power somewhat.
    2. This speaker may not get enough power to keep the battery from discharging when playing at full volume. Of course this depends on what you’re listening to.  So it’s possible that even with the unit plugged in, it still might shut OFF unexpectedly.  Now should this occur, just stop playing the 300 for an hour or two. This allows it to accrue some reserve power. Then, start it up again for more party fun once the battery charges a bit.
