Quality Sound by Pioneer

The A-Series speakers are your solution to upgrading those worn out factory speakers. The cone is composed of a multilayer mica matrix material that is rigid enough to resist warping during playback, but soft enough to produce smooth and subtle mids. The soft dome tweeter uses Wave Guide technology in order to increase the sensitivity, thus providing great articulation in the high frequency spectrum. The passive crossover network will blend the mid-woofer and tweeter for a perfectly balanced sound all throughout the audible frequency range. These speakers are designed with a wide frequency response to ensure you are hearing every note of your favorite songs. The high temperature voice coil will reduce distortion by dissipating heat quickly, which will protect your investment for years to come. These speakers can be ran off either a head-unit or an amplifier, making them very versatile and applicable for most vehicles. Available in most common sizes, the A-Series speakers make for a great audio upgrade.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
A-Series / TSA (Pioneer)
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.
Pair
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"
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.
3/4"
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.
Mica Reinforced Cellular Glass-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.
200 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.
60 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".
92 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).
35 - 37000 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.
2-7/8"
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.
Yes

Great bang for the buck!

September 24, 2013

Purchased 2 pairs of these (4 speakers) for a 2011 Sentra, and when paired with a decent amp, they come alive. Like some of the other reviews, these speakers are meant to be played with some kind of sub in place. They love to have a HPF set to 100hz or so, and handle quite a bit of power. I'm pushing roughly 85-90% of the power they'll handle with a Kenwood amp, and they don't distort even all the way up. The only complaint I would have is that they are a bit lacking in the bass department, and the highs may be a bit too piercing. Overall, if you leave the EQ flat on the high-end, and use an HPF, and *especially* use a separate amp, these speakers will give you what sound you want. I listen to hip-hop, alternative rock, pop, 80's basically anything you can imagine, and they play the sound great! Definitely worth the money, if you need new speakers and have a sub in place or are going to get one, these will be a great fit for you!

Great speaker. Clear Highs. Stock head unit provides loud volume without distortion

August 19, 2014

I was replacing my stock speakers and installing a subwoofer to the truck so I didn't need low end bass from these. Using stock head unit, these things can get impressively loud without distortion and have crystal clear highs for a budget non-component speaker. It fit in my 2006 Dodge RAM front doors by reusing the bracket from the stock speakers.

Excellent Speakers, Excellent price

June 30, 2014

I purchased these for my grand caravan, it took less than 1 hour to install 4 of these. The holes line up perfectly with the factory speakers so no drilling required. Some web sites say you can't install 6x9 in the front due to depth, but there is more than enough mounting depth for these. the sound is incredible, even with the factory deck...i can't wait to hear these with the new pioneer head unit i ordered. i would reccomend these to anyone who want to improve their sound for very little money.

WOW

April 19, 2014

I had a pair of old speaker boxes in my van that I'd had for years swapping 'em into whatever rig I had at the time. The drivers of these finally wore out but, being an old unique size I couldn't find replacement drivers. Having faith in Pioneer 6x9's that I have mounted elsewhere in my van and in my Jeep this is what I went with. Using a jigsaw to enlarge the hole the installation was very strainghtforward, but what I was unprepared for was how these speakers helped me realize the full power of the amp that had been in place for the last 10 years. Wow!

Good Value, Nice Aesthetics

December 2, 2013

Speakers were worth the purchase. Paired with the Jensen POWER1500.5D I am happy with the sound. They are being overdriven to 60 watt RMS and have held up for about a month. I listen to my music loud too. Component install process took a star away but you should know what you're getting into before getting components.
