Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

Series
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.
3-1/2"
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.
2-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 Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
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)
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.
60 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.
15 watts
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
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.
1-7/16""

What a speakers!

August 12, 2012

The reason why I bought these speakers are the reviews. Boy, they were right. I'm hearing music instruments that weren't present in my stock speakers. It has good detail, the mids were improved and the highs are crisp but not too bright. Most of all, it raises my soundstage big time. The crashes of the cymbals were so distinct, and the vocals are clearer than my stock speakers. I even know some of the lyrics on Van Halen's I'll Wait and Jimi Hendrix's Foxy Lady. These little magics are powered by a pioneer DEH-6300UB head unit. I have Kicker speaker up front, Rockford Fosgate in the rear and Sound Ordnance sub to complete my system. Don't be fooled by its low price. These are one of the best bang for the buck speakers! Couldn't be happier!

PIONEER TS-A878

January 21, 2013

Good replacement front speakers for my 87 monte carlo ss restoration project...Although i did wait until i replaced the windshield to install them..... Not enough room between the dash & windshield to squeeze them in with out breaking something...Much easier to work with the windshield installer..They pulled the glass & allowed me to install the speakers at their shop before installing the new windshield

Awesome quality!

May 11, 2012

I would recommend this product to anyone. I have an FJ Cruiser and i replaced my stock 2' speakers in the front and rear of the car. The sound quality is superb compared to the stocks. I just recently bought a pioneer double-din system which brings out the rich crisp sounds from these speakers. They hit the highs well and still give off a good amount of mid range sounds.

These tiny speakers will get loud. The tweeters are outstanding. I had the radio on 60 and they sounded great with no distortion. Easy mounting process in a 84 Chevrolet which was very helpful. I would recommend this product and website to anyone.

Holy Clean Sounding Little Speakers!

August 15, 2011

For a custom fitment, look no further than these little devils. Holy cow are they clean sounding! With their small size, bass isn't their strong suit but their mids and highs are killer. So crisp, not too bright, good snap, and they fit great in place of the factory dash speakers on second generation Volkswagens. Pioneer does not get enough credit for their speakers, and these are yet another reason why I say that.

Great!!!

November 24, 2010

The sound was great after a very tough installation! Going into a 1986 Monte Carlo SS Dash. They were the only speakers you could get into this dash board (barely). But it was worth the time and money. Nice crisp sound for speakers!!!

Surprisingly good speakers for not much $$$$

August 8, 2010

About 5 years ago I replaced the factory speakers in my 02 Envoy with Infinity reference speakers. The truck has the factory Bose system which sounded very nice, but I knew it could sound better with some aftermarket speakers. The Infinity's were a great upgrade and fit my budget, although I find them to be too bright. About 6 months ago one of the dash speakers developed a rattle, and I decided to replace them. After doing a bunch of research - and reading reviews, I decided to try the Pioneer TS-A878. I figured if they weren't any good I'd be out less than $50, so what-the-heck. At first I was a little disappointed because the speakers sounded flat, but then I played with the stereo's equalizer and WOW the speakers came alive! The lower mids and midrange sounds great, with voices and guitars sounding very clear. The soundstage has nice depth and I hear things in the music I didn't hear before. I like these speaker so much that I plan on replacing the Infinity reference components in the rear door with Pioneer components sometime in the near future. In conclusion, I couldn't be happier and feel these speakers are MUCH better than their $45 price would let you to believe. Maybe more expensive speaker would sound better but I like getting value from the things I buy, and these speakers hit the mark for me. They sound GREAT! I've only had them 6 months so I really can't comment on their long term durability, but so far I haven't had a single problem even when driving them hard so I gave them 5 stars.
