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.

General Features:

  • 6-1/2" / 6-3/4" A-Series 4-Way Coaxial Speakers
  • Power Handling:
    • Peak: 350 watts per pair / 175 watts each

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.
6-1/2" (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.
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.
175 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".
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).
34 - 30000 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"
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

Great Budget Speakers

January 29, 2013

These things are one of the best values I've gotten in a month. These produce a good loud clear sound even without being amped. They hit pretty deep and still pretty clear and at nearly all ranges. Great buy.

Good sound for the money...

July 3, 2014

Definitely a nice sounding speaker, however I recommend pairing them with an amp. They sound much cleaner when they get enough power. I'm running 2 pairs hooked up to a Power Acoustik RZ4-1200D and they sound great.

Pioneer TS-A1685R - Great Value on a Budget

May 23, 2014

I had bought these Pioneer TS-A1685R 6.75 speakers to replace a blown Pioneer TS-A1782R that I installed 3 yrs ago. They are being powered by a JL XD600/6 in a 2003 Altima SE. My deck is a Premier DEH-P880PRS and the sub is a 12 Kicker Cmp Vr. These speakers and ampsare temporary for a Seas speakers / Genesis amps install. They act as the front door speakers and I have the Pioneer TS-A6993R 6x9's in the rear deck. The sound is very good. They still have to be tuned in and do require about 10 more RMS watts than its predecessor. Right off the bat I can say it does have a more "laid back" sound to it and is a little softer on the highs- not as harsh. The lows sound the same and the mid range still needs to be dialed in. For the money.. its a great deal.. and very good sound. I would expect them to last another 3-4 yrs of some hard listening.. but they are temporary for a more higher end setup. I am sure they will come more alive when I feed them some more power... and/or I switch to a Class A/B amp. Overall.. they sound very good - great. I recommend.

May 7, 2014

Good speakers on skar 60.4 amp. my buddy asked if I had tweeters and I don't. goes to show that the highs r great and the bass they produce is pretty good. I O-scoped both my amps n my system sounds super clean. They have crisp sound great speakers for the price also have the pioneer TS-A 6x9 5-way give good bass. I recommend the pioneer TSA series and SE. Durability is a 4 only cause I've had speakers only a couple of weeks.

Good Upgrade

May 6, 2014

I used these to replace my door speakers in my Caddy truck. It was a nice upgrade, I can definitely tell that there are more vocals coming through and pretty clear, crisp sound. They don't sound as great as expected but I still have them connected to the factory amp. I'm sure they'd sound and handle much better connected and tuned to an aftermarket amp.

It is not a direct fit for 1998 Honda Accord!! You will have to cut the factory speaker brackets to make the speaker fit. Other than that, the speakers are an upgrade over the factory door speakers.

I found this service online and went to dealership to find out my problem with my speakers after I was told 260.00 for just two speakers. What a great online find for what I wanted.. I bought a great and I mean jamming set of front and rear speaker set for my 2008 Chevy Silverado and pioneer really made a great speaker for my needs.. You can call this online company and they can help you with any advice and they where mailed out so fast I was shocked.. A very great deal and friendly free service..!! The bass and the twetters make the highs and lows very clear and I would buy them again if I had to, Thank you all and keep up the great service.

Best Answer: These Speakers are sold as a pair which is 2... I bought a pair for the front and back on my Chevy Silverado and these speaker worked great for the replacement of the stock GM one's... They are louder and more bass tone to them with the volume all the way up they still put out top sound,they are a 10 in my book... Great Speakers..!!
