Sony XP500 Specifications

Here, we list Sony XP500 X Series party and karaoke BT 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, Bluetooth support details et al.

Secondly, it’s clear from the published specifications, that the Sony XP500 sounds great for its size. E.g. It plays loud enough for medium to large party sizes at patios, swimming pools, dances, playgrounds, et al, with its approximately eight (8) watts RMS of audio power per channel, 16 watts total.

Plus, even at loudest volume, the lithium ion battery can last from five (5) to twenty (20) hours per recharge depending on surrounding temperature, light setting, and program content.  Indeed, the specifications certainly do not mislead as to the great features Sony put into this IPX4 water resistant Bluetooth speaker.
