Our take on the Pioneer TS-A1305C

by John Pollard
Pioneer

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Get more out of your music

Are your car's factory speakers sounding less than fresh? Pioneer built their A-Series speakers to be high-performance replacements for your old speakers, designed from the ground up to bring back the life that your music's been missing. You'll be able to enjoy the clear vocals, chunky guitar riffs, powerful drums, and distinct bass lines that have always been a part of your favorite tunes, but have remained hidden behind sub-par speakers.

The woofer will add depth and impact to your favorite tunes.

Built to make your music rock

Pioneer equipped the TS-A1305C component speaker system with 5-1/4" multilayer mica-matrix woofers that stay rigid when the volume's turned up, keeping distortion to a minimum so your bass sounds clean. Install the separate 3/4" tweeters in a good spot up high in your vehicle for better stereo imaging. The system also includes 2-way outboard crossovers, a step up from the inline tweeter high-pass filters usually found in systems in this price range.

These speakers will sound great running off your factory radio, but they'll really shine when driven by an aftermarket receiver or an external amp. Don't drive another day listening to tired-sounding tunes, when you can enjoy Pioneer sound quality with these speakers in your vehicle.

  • component speaker system includes component speaker system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 crossovers

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted or surface mounted using the supplied housings. The surface mount housing positions the tweeters at approximately a 50° angle. Once installed the tweeters do not swivel.

Very Crisp

Written By Patch, Granada Hills, CA on Saturday, April 19, 2014
 
Just make sure to study the wiring and mounting carefully on one door, and the second door should be cake.
Pros:
It has a very crisp sound, lots of high frequency from these if run by themselves. Installation was fairly easy with the included hardware, just plan and study your wiring carefully and you should do just fine. Price was also quite attractive at the time of purchase.
Cons:
These are definitely not designed to be run by themselves. They need a pair of 6" x 9" speakers to make up for low and mid-low frequencies.

Written By Anonymous, WV on Sunday, March 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speakers are a good value for the money. They sound good for a 5 1/4 speaker. I wasn't impressed with the supplied wiring and cross over mounting.
Pros:
Good mid and high range sound.
Cons:
supplied speaker wire crimp connectors were very loose fittingfitting to the speakers. I had to install new ones. The cross over have no mounting holes. I had to wire tie them to other cables in the door and use duct seal to hold them in place. They came with Velcro but my experience is that tape on Velcro doesn't last.

Easy install with supplied adapters. Had issues with one of the open box speaker sets I purchased. Crutchfield handled it with a new set and a prepaid UPS pick up label. Just the way it should be done. I will definitely continue purchasing from Crutchfield. Great Products and even BETTER customer service.

I got this speaking system for my really old pimped out car and the sound went from original normal sound to outstanding surround sound just the way I wanted them. Even though the tweeters are just glued to my dash the sound is outstanding thanks to Crutchfield!!!
Pros:
Perfect for what I needed them for and easy to set up!

Not compatible with monsoon

Written By Anonymous, Oxford, MI on Friday, November 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm sure these speakers can be good in the right system but they were not in mine. I was replacing a factory monsoon speakers in a Pontiac g6 as a direct swap (olds ones were bad). I had no intention to bypass/replace the monsoon amp and it was not happy with range of these speakers.

Aside from that I feel that the range of these speakers are a limiting factor. The woofers and tweeters have a high low limit

After I tweaked the crossover limits in a new head unit the speakers were decent but I still replaced them.
Cons:
Range

Sounds great

Written By Anonymous, Dayton, Oh on Friday, October 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these to replace my front factory speakers and also hooked them up to a amplifier and a Pioneer receiver. The tweeters sound great and the speakers really bring out the mid and hi ranges but they lack on bass but a decent subwoofer fixes that.
Pros:
Sounds much better than stock speakers, tweeters look really cool.
Cons:
No bass but that's what a subwoofer is for and you may need to glue the tweeter to where it mounts if it falls off.

better than stock

Written By Fidrat, Iowa City,IA on Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I really can't review them now as I am currently running them through my stock head unit that is notorious for putting out bad sound. I will be changing that out soon so I can really hear them. So far they sound way better than stock. Lacking in the mid-range sound,but I think that is more the stock head units fault.
Pros:
fit well,sound great,good price.
Cons:
can't think of anything.

A major improvement!

Written By Charlie, Bucks County, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My daily driver is a 2010 Toyota Tacoma regular cab pickup, and I love my truck! However, to say the stock speakers were pure junk is an understatement. I knew I wanted an all-Pioneer system (head unit and speakers) for my truck, and based on research, I knew Crutchfield was the way to go. This was the only Pioneer component system Crutchfield had at the time that would fit my truck, so I bought it and I could not be happier with my purchase!

With the factory speakers, I often had to turn the volume all the way up for certain songs (especially older songs that were recorded in Mono) or when the windows were down. These Pioneer speakers are truly ground-pounding, and quite literally door panel-vibrating, technological marvels.

I would not hesitate to recommend this component to any of my family and friends.

They are also perfect for the audiophile on a budget, no matter what kind of vehicle they are driving.
Pros:
Everything, especially the price and the overall quality you get for the price.

Decent Setup

Written By Jonathan, Baltimore, MD on Friday, March 22, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My factory setup ('03 WRX) was a component system in the front doors, so it was a no brainer to replace those 10 year old speakers with another component system to utilize the factory grills. Installation was a breeze with the help of the Crutchfield installation kit.

Overall, paired with a Kenwood deck that allowed me to fine tune this component set, they sound pretty good for the money.
Pros:
Decent sound for the price!

Excellent sound for a fantastic price

Written By Jeremy, Seattle, WA on Friday, March 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I realized when having these installed that I was not going to be powering them with a separate amp, and as such, would not be getting the full experience that they are capable of. That being said, I've been super impressed with the overall quality and performance.
Pros:
Wonderful price for high quality components
Cons:
I've noticed a slight scratch in the sound of one of the speakers. Not sure if that is from the install job or the speaker itself, but it takes away from a perfect experience.

Good for the money!

Written By Sammy, Gainesville, Ga. on Tuesday, February 19, 2013
 
After looking at all speakers for my car a 2002 Honda civic ex and being on a budget decided on these speakers. Crutchfield provided all the parts to put these in the doors and in the rear deck. Your not going to get a whole lot of bass from these speakers, that's not what they are for. However for mids and highs they're great. Mount for the tweeters works really well.
Pros:
Ease of installation!
Cons:
None

ok for the money

Written By Anonymous, alamogordo, NM on Monday, February 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Install was fairly straight forward. The two different mounting pods that came with the speakers will come in handy for different mounting options. These definitely aren't the best speakers in the world. The tweeters sound a little harsh compared to the woofer and you definitely need a sub to make this system sound really good. That being said, for the price they aren't a bad deal and are an excellent replacement for factory speakers if you are looking to step up to a component system.
Pros:
bang for buck
Cons:
harsh tweeters
