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.
6-1/2" (also mounts in 6-3/4" w/ included brackets)
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.
4-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.
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.
Carbon Graphite IMPP Interlaced Aramid Fiber
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.
Elastic Polymer Surround
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.
280 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.
50 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".
91 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).
36 - 28,000 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.
2-1/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

Pioneer Still Rocks!

January 21, 2011

Speakers sound excellent installed in rear doors of chevy blazer running off an Alpine 40 watt older amp these things crank. just bringing them past the break-in point, have had about 35-40% power and they produce a crisp but deafening soundfield throughout the cab. I listen to it all but you can really take advantage of the 4 way with techno or metal i swear these speakers allow you to hear like a fourth dimension on an album or song you thought you knew every beat too, specifically in the drums and back-up guitar area. i am replacing a set of alpine type S and the increase in sound with the pioneers is more then i expected i will be purchacing more pioneer speakers soon from sonicelectronix.com they ship fast and you know what your getting

January 19, 2011

I have a pair of these speakers installed in a custom made console in my car and they sound great hooked up to an amp that's not too powerfull but strong enough to get all of the potential out of them. I would definately recomend these for anyone wanting good quallity sounding speakers for their car without having to spend an unreasonable amount of money.

Good speakers, need an amp.

May 12, 2010

Got two pairs of these put in about a month ago. I was a bit disapointed, because it was a lot louder, and the mids and highs sounded great, but the bass was distorted. It sort of buzzed instead of beating. But then i got a 4X75 amp and hooked them up and they sounded amazing. The guy at the audio shop said the propylene woofers are so heavy that the head unit doesnt send out enough wattage to move them like theyre supposed to.

This product has extreme quality and I mean that. My car stereo goes up to 62 volume and its LOUD and these speakers can handle the power, and still do I've had them for 6 months now. I highly recommend these speakers, for the price of $80, you cant beat the quality.

Great Sound -- Tricky Installation

December 7, 2010

I bought 4 of these to replace my 15w stock speakers in my 2008 Civic. The front door speakers went in fine, but the back panel speakers wouldn't fit for anything. I drilled new holes and even too it to Best Buy installation and they couldn't do it. The 2 in the front sound amazing though, just don't expect to get them in a small car. They're pretty deep.

Tight

April 14, 2010

I got these speakers & they sound really good & look tight. They're in a 88 Ford XLT Lariat & the speaker on the right door fit in perfect, but the speaker on the left door didn't, only two screws went in,(Gotta Drill Holes), but when I flipped the speaker around(Magnet showing) the holes matched perfectly.) ???I guess the hole pattern are switched on the truck... Anyways It was a great buy, P.S. IF you buy these look @ the cone, It's a nice design.

Cons: They Lack bass (Hook up an amp & they'll sound a bit better with the bass.)
