2011 Pioneer A-Series Car Speakers
Improving on the previous design of the Pioneer A-Series speakers, the new 2011 Pioneer TS-A6874R 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 40 watts. The Pioneer TS-A6874R 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-A6874R.

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.
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.
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).
30 - 30,000 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.

Yes
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.
2-3/8"
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.
2-1/2"
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.
5-1/4" x 7-1/2" 
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.
No

Replacement ford stock speakers

September 25, 2012

I was pleased with the ease of replacement using these speakers. You have to get some easy splice wire connectors. They are pretty cheap. The speakers do not have a Ford connection as many replacement speakers do not. This is not a down side. I was hopeing for a little more punch and bass but because of the size of the speakers that would not be possible. They do sound good and much better than the stock speakers. I have 6 of these in my van. I have a pioneer AM/FM/CD player. I would recomend these speakers and would purchase them again.

Good stock replacement

February 3, 2013

This is a good stock speaker replacement - and that only. If you're going to be amplifying these or you have a subwoofer, I wouldn't recommend these. The sound quality is better than stock, however they can't take much power so amplifying them is trivial. Also, you will have no need for your front speakers to output bass if you have a subwoofer.

But overall, these do their purpose. They are a good, affordable choice for drop in replacements for stock speakers.

Great Speakers! Great deal!

September 3, 2012

I replaced some Infinity speakers in my F250 with the Pioneer 3 ways, what an improvement! Better bass, clear, precise sound from the Beatles to Limp Bizkit. Got two more for the rear pillars and were direct replacements, easy hook up. Cant beat the price.

these Pioneers --- good ; the original factory spekers --- better...

August 8, 2012

These Pioneers did not deliver a clearly superior sound compared to my original factory speakers. I wound up re-installing my factory speakers. I thought they sounded better than the Pioneers overall, (the Pioneers did have improved sound in the treble range)

I commend Sonic Electronix for their good customer service. They allowed me to return the product and make an exchange, not due to any product defect, but because I expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of the product. Well done, Sonic. Thank you.

EXCELLENT SPEAKERS

June 12, 2012

I bought these speakers and installed them on my Pathfinder and was really satisfied with the sound. I sold my truck and remove them. I would recommend these for the price and also for the quality of sound.

Superior lows

December 30, 2011

I replaced a pair of Rockford Fosgate punch series 6x8s with these and was very surprised with how much cleaner and balanced the sound was. I will say that the lows are doing more than the highs which is quite the opposite with RFs, maybe that's why it was more tolerable to me but I plan to stick with these in the future, they have a much fuller and cleaner sound than the Fosgates do and a much higher and lower range at that. They're pretty cheap too so I feel good about buying these. Also these speakers didn't have any of the distortion that I've been experiencing with Rfs.

Good speakers for the money. Only put them in the front doors and noticed the sound was much better. Will probably be buying another set to replace the rear stock speakers.

August 9, 2012

I'm so glad I bought these speakers. I switched from my OEM speakers in my '05 Ranger and there is a very noticeable difference in everything; sound quality, range, bass etc. Plus, they're cheap in comparison to others. They're super easy to install also. I have a hard time listening to music on stock systems now.

good shallow mount buy

April 15, 2012

It's a good 3 way speaker when you have a shallow mount door like me in a 05 F250. A good price, too. I have them amped at 170 watts rms and still clean.

I'm pleased

December 21, 2011

I put these in my F250 crew cab to help wake up the bass a little. It did that and also woke up the rest of the sound spectrum. I wish I had purchased these sooner, blows stock out of the water. With the performace they provide and the price you pay for them on here, you can't loose, buy them already.

Great OEM replacement!

September 6, 2011

These speakers are great factory replacments to run on a head unit. I put 2 sets in my 1997 Thunderbird, with a pioner head unit. Bet 300 dollars I've spent on the car.

These things are loud. I have them powered by the head unit and a boss 1000 watt phantom series amp, and needless to say 0 distortion and amazing highs/mids. I havent turned up the lows on them being that the subs are already hitting hard enough.

Great Speaker!

June 11, 2011

Bought these speakers to replace the stock speakers in my '97 F150 (a pair in the front doors and a pair in the extended cab). They're running on the stock stereo and sound GREAT!! Standard shipping from Sonic Electronix was really fast. I would definitely recommend these Pioneers to anyone looking to upgrade their stock stereo. This was the first time I've ordered from Sonic Electronix (I normally order from C********), but with the great price and fast shipping, this won't be my last order!
