2011 Pioneer A-Series Car Speakers
Improving on the previous design of the Pioneer A-Series speakers, the new 2011 Pioneer TS-A6984R 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 80 watts. The Pioneer TS-A6984R becomes a great solution for a factory replacement speaker. However, Pioneer increased the Max power handling to 550 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-A6984R.

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
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 9"
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.
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
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.
550 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.
80 watts
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).
27 - 37,000 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.
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.
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.
6" x 8-5/8" 
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.
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.

Awesome replacement for stock speakers you'll notice the difference immediately.

October 12, 2012

These speakers sound great on a headunit and amplified. They have a very nice punch to them while still keeping the highs nice and crisp. Just keep in mind that the magnets on these will be much larger than stock so you need to measure before you buy or do what I did and start cutting. Overall these speakers are definitely worth the money.

Pioneer TS-A6984R

October 21, 2012

They arrived fairly quick to my Stillwater, OK address. I've always been a Pioneer fan and had a set of TS-a 2 ways a few years ago. They were awesome and i finally got some money up to get another set. The highs out of these things are awesome! I wanted soft dome tweeters for there more smooth sound and that's just what I got! The mids on these are fantastic and the lows are pretty good to. I'm powering these bad boys with an old school Rockford Fosgate 4600x Series 1 4 channel. Pure power! And it takes the power from that amp like a champ! Also I used Boom Mat speaker baffles with these things also to help improve the bass a bit. And it works. I only put a baffle on 1 speaker and left the other one alone and used the balance on my stereo and i could tell the difference in bass quality. So yes baffles work. But back to the speakers. The grilles they come with are cool but I plan on using an old Pioneer grille that's just metal mesh and looks more low profile and I like them more. These speakers are great for the price!

Great Speakers

May 13, 2011

Ok, I ordered this pair 5 days ago. I live in Canada, and I received them yesterday. Pretty fast delivery, brand new box. I didn't have any problems with installation (I did it for the first time, and it took like 30 minutes to finish the process). They sound great. My front seats shake by bass, and people notice my car from the crowd. Great purchase, and you can't go wrong with it. Strongly recommend.
P.S. 80 RMS sound loud, very loud :)
