2011 Pioneer A-Series Car Speakers
Improving on the previous design of the Pioneer A-Series speakers, the new 2011 Pioneer TS-A1604C prove to be a big step forward for the already award winning speakers. The most notable improvement on these new speakers is the enhanced power handling of the speakers. With an RMS power handling of 50 watts. The Pioneer TS-A1604C becomes a great solution for a factory replacement speaker. However, Pioneer increased the Max power handling to 350 watts, which is great for those that want to power these speakers with an aftermarket amplifier. Using Carbon graphite IMPP interlaced aramid fiber cone and an elastic polymer surround, the diaphragm response is smooth and results in natural, crisp sound. For those that want the latest in car audio loudspeaker technology, Pioneer is an excellent choice and a leader in the mobile loudspeaker industry. Improve your ride for 2011 with the Pioneer TS-A1604C.

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"
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.
2-way Component System
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.
Soft 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
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.
350 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".
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).
29 - 29,000 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.

No
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.
2-1/8"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-3/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 5" 
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.
Yes

Very nice for the price

May 13, 2013

Good speaker with clarity and accuracy, especially good treble. Bass is only adequate, but decent with a JVC head unit with about 20 watts rms per channel. I do not think I could have purchased better for the money.

Great speakers

August 27, 2012

The speakers have great sound quality especially hooked up to a pioneer head unit, and the tweeters compliment them beautifully, if your looking for deep bass I would suggest a bigger speaker but if you have a low pass filter with a sub these speakers will play louder than you would want to listen to them and still be crystal clear, great buy

July 23, 2012

i have 2 sets of these components in a 2001 celica. they sound good off the head unit, but since i am running them with an amp, they are much louder. properly dialing in the gain helped a ton. the highs are good, but not over the top, mids are punchy and clear. i run no extra bass through these speakers. i let my subs do that. allowing me to turn it up high. an added tip, pick the right amp power (40-45 rms), and a clean amp (jl audio, alpine, kenwood excelon) and youll have a good setup thats easy on the wallet.

cant handle the power!!

May 6, 2012

I had purchased these speakers on sale for a very cheap price so wasnt expecting too much. When installed they were getting about 60 watts rms and sounded horible. I added another speaker on both speaker channels so that in the end these speaker got about 40watts rms and they sounded much better. The woofers in this set are very muddy sounding but the tweeters can sure shine through!!

I purchased two pairs of these pioneer TS-A1604C speakers for my 1996 rav 4 and they fitted very well. The only issue I have with the tweeters is that they rattle even when the volume is moderate.

A steal at this price.

February 27, 2012

I have two sets of these that will soon go into my car. I hooked them up today on a nice 4 x 90 in parallel at 2 ohms so each woofer/tweeter was getting about 45 watts each. It wasn't bad, but it didn't impress me. So I switched some things around and was able to run them at about 80 watts each and they woke up like you would never believe. They have a nice airy, wispy sound which I like. They did fine on low power, but they liked the juice and took it just fine. I played them for just over an hour at 80 watts each and they handled it fine. For this price, I have to say I am very impressed and certainly surprised. The mids are clear, the highs are detailed and airy and what little midbass I had (running them in free air, remember) was decent. The upper mids can get a little... edgy, but that's the case for most sets at this price range. Get these if you need budget components.

February 17, 2012

i Do not recommend this speaker, they are overrated, could not turn up the sound because they smell like burning rubber. My right tweeter burned out within the first few weeks. Pioneer is one of my favorite brands but these speakers are just overrated.

Pioneer is a top quality product. The installation went very smoothly. I had to modify the mount for the tweeters only slightly to fit in the factory openings in the upper door panel. Fit great, sound awesome!!

Great set of speakers!

December 11, 2011

Recommend this set of speakers for anyone looking to upgrade your current setup. Sure its not a thousand dollar speakers but they definitely do the job, and quite well in my opinion. The acoustics are heard loud and clear and the tweeters also have a good sound. They have not crackled or blow and I have had them for about a year now. Great product from Pioneer. I went with a full pioneer setup along with a Sound Ordinance sub and amp.

Incredible sound for the price!

December 9, 2011

Installed a pair of these in an 05 Chrysler town n country using plastic 6x9 to 6 1/2" round adapter plates. Speakers are in the front doors and are powered by a Kenwood in dash only. Clarity is exceptional; SOLID bass response too! I surface mounted the tweeters to give nice directionality and these speakers truly sing. An incredible value for the price. I've auditioned many speakers in various price ranges and these have been competitive with the best that Focal/MB quart has to offer. Once again, for the money, these are extremely hard to beat!! Just be patient with them as they require some time to break in fully!

One of the best quality per value, love Pionner as a trademark and the quality is all what we want for my wife's new car. The stock speakers provided were extremely poor. We hook them up with a 4 channels Alpine amp and they drive good powerful sound for the whole family, without distortion, highly recommended!
