Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 8"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

PEI Titanium
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP) Aramid Fiber Composite
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Foam
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
240 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
40 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
35 - 32000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.

Great Upgrade for stock speakers

July 21, 2010

Had a defective speaker in my wife's 2006 Ford Escape. Liked them so much that I changed out all four speakers. Awesome sound. Great bass! Have also since installed them in my 1999 Taurus. Figured If I was going to drive an older car that I may well spoil myself. Paired them up with the JCV HDR60 and the sound is great!!!

Great over Stock speakers

June 18, 2010

I bought these for a 2002 f150 supercrew which they are a direct replacement. They were extremely easy to install and sound so much better than the stock speakers. They bring the music to life. They handle a good amount of power with out distorting and still sound awesome cranked up. Hands down one of the best values for the money if your looking for a Ford or Mazda direct replacement.

These speakers have a lot of clarity. I replaced my stocks on my 2011 truck with these, and the difference was noticeable. When you buy Pioneer you can't go wrong. Quality and affordability.

GREAT speakers!!

May 18, 2011

I put these in my 07 F250 Harley Davidson about 6 months ago and the change in sound was incredible! Noticeable right away. I changed both front and rear speakers. Excellent highs, mids and more bass. I've since switched out the factory headunit with a nice Pioneer double din and the sound quality has increased even more. These speakers are definitely worth the money. Can't beat the price for the great change in sound. 4 screws hold each speaker in and they use the existing holes the factory speakers use, so no drilling or guessing. I'm still very pleased with the purchase.

Good speaker for price; using in rear doors of Sport Trac and handles everything my KDX 993 can dish out. Only complaint is that the lows overpower the highs compared to the front speakers. Contemplating a subwoofer with crossovers into the speakers low range to compensate...

Perfect buy

February 20, 2011

I ordered a total of four speakers for my car of this type and I didn't go wrong. I was skeptical for the price, but they sound great. Without a standalone sub in the car, these things still hit pretty nicely when it comes to bass. Highs are great, mids and lows are very good as well. For the price, definitely worth it.

Fine speaker for the money

January 2, 2011

Summary: Pros: kick very hard when driven by an external amp. Strong, satisfying, punchy mid bass. Cons: So so off the head unit amp, no crossover or even caps to separate frequencies. These speakers can provide surprisingly good midbass. Loud, clear, and without distortions. Mids and highs are clear and balanced but not as good as those of Infinity speakers. Give these speakers adequate power and they'll really surprise you. However, when running off the head unit amp, they're nothing special IMHO. Recessed highs and mids, and bass that's only tiny little bit better than the factory speakers. My other complaint is that there is no crossover or even capacitor to separate frequencies, so the woofer and tweeters are being fed the whole spectrum.

Would take these rather than my kickers

October 25, 2010

I have two of these in the back of my 2003 Ford Escape and I love them. The sound quality is good but not great but the fact that they are 3-ways really improves the quality of my music. The range of these speakers is wonderful an couldn't ask for better. They even have more bass than my Kicker KS680's. The Kickers still have better quality but these Pioneers are definitely rockin, which says a lot considering how much lees these Pioneers coated in comparison to the Kickers. The surround is flimsy like past reviewers have mentioned but I you won't have to worry about that unless you have a pretty decent amp going to them. I would most likely buy these again, I even considered buying my friend some Pioneers for him as his graduation present.

Superior Quality!!

October 16, 2010

The speakers are amazing! They are nothing short of legendary Pioneer quality. If you put them in the right environment they will be the best coax speaker 6x8 you will ever own! I have had mine for about 18 months and they have never let me down and usually surprise! i have mine in my 01' Ranger. I have Boom Mat speaker baffles behind them and the doors and inside door panel covered in Stinger sound deadened. Both of these great products and the speakers make superb sound quality! Pioneer makes the best speakers under $200 period! If you are on a budget, Pioneer speakers would be the best choice by far! I also put the 6.5" version in my girlfriend's 01' Camaro without the sound deadener and they still sound amazing! Just be sure to spend the extra $20 for baffles! It will make a world of difference for your install! Overall 5 stars across the board!

Awesome Buy!

June 19, 2010

I just installed these today in my car. I had to replace my blown factory speakers. These speakers are fantastic. They are about 3 times better than factory speakers too. They have a very full sound to them and they are very smooth and crisp. I like them a lot. The install was a breeze too. For 50 bucks, these compare easily to Alpine. Can't go wrong with Pioneer! If you want some great sound and you are just running them off of a factory or aftermarket stereo, get them!
