2011 Pioneer A-Series Car Speakers
Improving on the previous design of the Pioneer A-Series speakers, the new 2011 Pioneer TS-A1684R 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-A1684R 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-A1684R.

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.
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.
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".
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).
33 - 27,000 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.
2-1/4"
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

Pioneer Speakers

April 23, 2012

I would recommend these speakers to everyone. I purchased these speakers to mount in the saddle baggs of my Harley Davidson. On the bike scene we have a saying, I pound I ride, and with the Pioneer speakers, it gave that quote a whole new meaning! Now as I pound the pavement my music pounds as well.

Not to bad

January 28, 2012

I bought these and put them in my 2011 optima with the stock headunit. Very very clear but with out bass blockers or anything the tweeters get too much bass and get very distorted and crackle.

Highly Recommend

January 19, 2013

i installed these in the rear deck of a 96 toyota tercel and love them. they work great off of head unit power alone. very seamless low-mid to high response and tight, respectable lows. the soft dome mid provides super warm mids and the two 3/8ths tweeter extend smoothly and cleanly out of audible range. the woofer cone is light and responsive enough to handle the low-mids very well. my one concern with the design of this speaker is the relatively large gap between the woofers pole piece and voice coil former. if you are mounting this vertically, like you would in a door, then it wont be a problem. but as for me, mounting this speaker facing up, it is exposed to the crust and dust coming from above. we will see if the speaker has to be visited by a can of compressed air in the future. other than that, i highly recommend and am very impressed by this speaker!

I purchased these speaker about 6 months ago. I must say it was money well spend, this product was delivered on time and I was informed on the status of it's location while in transit. The performance of the speakers if great!! They are very clear and loud, I turn up my radio almost all the way and you can tell the speakers can handle so much more. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a simple upgrade to there car audio system.

Excellent Speakers

October 18, 2011

I have used many brands of speakers in the past. These are definitely a great addition to any system. They cover the mid to high range extremely well; and are quite effective in the low range. If you are looking for good all round sound these will do the trick. I gave them a few weeks at low to moderate volume for break in. I noticed a dramatic improvement in sound quality and range. Excellent buy especially at the price. Huge improvement over the stock equipment.

A Trade Off

August 10, 2011

So first and foremost, these speakers work great, no problem with them at all. The problem lies in the car. I am putting this one here to warn people of the problems. I have a 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport. These DO NOT fit in the front doors like cru*******d says. 1. The speaker baffle is too small for the speaker, and has 3 holes instead of 4 for the speaker to drill into. 2. I went to 3 professionals and asked what to do about the speaker baffle problem, and they all told me, is what the do is just drill it into the door itself, and thats it. ONE PROBLEM! If you were to do that with these speakers, when you go to slide the window down it will hit the back of the speaker!!! Don't buy these for this model car unless if you want to lose to use of your windows. That is all. Great speakers though!
