Sony XB12 Specifications

Here, we list Sony SRS XB12 Extra Bass speaker specifications.  Firstly, these specifications cover the unit’s length, width, weight, battery recharge time, output power, and music play time per charge.  We also include the frequency response, driver size, and Bluetooth support details et al.

Secondly, it’s clear from the published specifications, that the Sony SRS XB12 released in August of 2019, sounds awfully good for as small as it is. E.g. It plays loud enough for smaller parties and gatherings on patios, swimming pools, et al, with its seven watts RMS of mono audio power. Moreover, the passive radiator gives more bass than models of like size.

Plus, even at loudest volume, the lithium ion battery can last up to sixteen (16) hours per recharge.  Indeed, the specifications certainly do not misinform as to the great features Sony put into this IP67 water resistant Bluetooth speaker.
