Side-view of Pioneer TS-A6965R 6"x9" speaker

The multi-driver array on this speaker brings out all the midrange and high-frequency details.

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.

Built to make your music rock

Pioneer equipped the TS-A6965R 6"x9" speakers with multilayer mica-matrix woofers that stay rigid when the volume's turned up, keeping distortion to a minimum so your bass sounds clean. Each woofer gets paired up with a midrange speaker and tweeter to add warmth and clarity to your driving soundtrack. These speakers will sound great running off your factory stereo, 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. 

Product Highlights:

  • 6"x9" 3-way car speakers (pair)
  • multilayer mica-matrix woofer with rubber-coated cloth surround
  • 3/8" PET dome tweeter
  • 2-1/4" cone midrange
  • power range: 5-60 watts RMS (400 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 35-37,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-7/8"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm a regular guy who's always improving my truck's sound system. The bass in these speakers isn't going to rattle your doors; however the clarity is pretty good for the price. Already having a subwoofer installed I do not need the bass rather than a ton of clarity. To anyone who wants to make the jump from stock to aftermarket speakers this is the best set on the market to begin with.

They do so fit lol

Written By toofly, Pennsylvania on Monday, July 13, 2015

These do,fit a 2004 sebring convertible, i was trusting Crutchfield's site but when i got the front door speaker cover off it was a 6x9 and this speaker fit perfectly. Actuallt 2 sets will do ya good just connected to aftermarket head unit. Not trying to entertain the neighborhood just mt passengers. Crutchfield is normally spot on so ill just chalk this up to everyone makes mistakes

Pros: All goood

Cons: A lil misinformation

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Affordable speakers & much better than those stock speakers. I wonder why brand new cars are so expensive these days?

Pros: Easy fit in my 2012 Chevy Impala, sounds better than stock paper speakers.

Cons: Too many things to remove from the interior of the car just to install these speakers. Could use an amp to sound better.

Great upgrade

Written By Dorian, Ohio on Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered these through Crutchfield for $50 when the rear speakers in my 99 Camry quit working as a cheap replacement. I talked to Abe about them and he was very helpful. The included information and wiring harness work as advertised. These speakers continue to sound better hour after hour of use. It definitely added more low end and cleared up the highs, although the original HU constricts these speakers true quality of reproduction. They make me want some for the front doors! For the price and added goodies from Crutchfield they deserve 5 stars in my opinion so far!

Written By R,Smith, TN on Monday, June 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced the door speakers in my 93 Dodge D350 and these sound magnificent! Outstanding quality for the price! I've used Polk and Pioneer for ages and these 6"x9" made my sound system enjoyable! I also replaced the rear cab speakers with matching 4"x10" and this thing gets LOUD and has respectable bass in the doors and all without an amplifier other than the 50wx4 my vintage SuperTuner IIID produced with the built in amplifier. Now I need a four channel amplifier to push the speakers and this thing will be an awesome basic set-up!

Pros: Price, Quality, very good sound! Wouldn't think twice before buying another set!

Cons: Speakers didn't match the mounting location inside the doors, but my automotive experience helped to open up the speaker locations. Worth every bit of my effort!

Nice!!! Love'em

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice speakers. When I first heard them I wasn't impressed. I installed a new pioneer deck and these speakers at the same time. I just wanted a lil sound in my 77 Regal. I was like they ok until I started fine tuning the deck and WOW what a surprise. The bass is awesome and the treble blends right in.

Pros: Hold bass really well. Price was right down my alley. $49 but they sound like they cost $100+.

Cons: As of right now there are no cons. I love these speakers

Solid speaker for the money

Written By LedHed, Washington on Friday, May 22, 2015

Solid speaker for the money. I'm really happy with these. I replaced the stock speakers in my 1997 Civic commuter with these. I'm very happy with them. I think they are great for the money.

Pros: Price for performance Easy Install!

Cons: None, they did exactly what I hoped they would at the price I wanted.

Very nice, for inexpensive speakers. I put them in boxes, so fitment was not an issue. Scratch and dent made the price much better. Would recommend the speakers, as well as buying scratch and dent. Service as always is top notch, and shipping was fast, and free. Doesn't get any better.

These are very nice....I would have given them a higher rating, but I recently installed a pair of Infinity 6 1/2" speakers & they have a more defined sound to them that I prefer....

Pros: Good solid all-round performer

Cons: I have heard them get overwhelmed a little quicker than the Infinity pair of 6 1/2" speakers....

2005 Cobalt Sedan, 17 year old daughter's first car. Installed the Pioneer TS-6965r 6X9's in the rear and Pioneer TS-G1645R 6" in the door panels. The sound is wonderful, crisp highs and plenty of clean bass. Great sound for the money.

Pros: great sound for the cost. Crutchfield's installation instructions were ( AS ALWAYS ) spot on and perfectly accurate

The speakers came in really quick. The service was awesome and hooked me up with all the installation gear. I installed two sets of these inside of a bus with no previouse sound system. The speakers with all the installation gear went in easily and the sound quality is great. The four speakers filled the buss with great sound easily.

Pros: Great all around sound quality. Great volume levels and modulation Great value

Cons: Non that I know of

2008 Nissan Sentra Great sound. Very well balanced & crisp with mids and highs. Bass isn't noticeably different from stock, but definitely sufficient. Then again they are not amplified or connected to a head unit in my application.

Cons: No quick fit wiring adapter

Written By Patch, Granada Hills, CA on Saturday, April 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They sound very nice. I don't actually need a sub woofer with these in my car. Application results may vary.

Pros: It compliments my front speakers very well, and makes up for the lack of low and mid low end frequencies missing.

Cons: I own a 2000 Camry, and these won't fit the rear deck without adapters. At the time of this review, Crutchfield did not offer adapters for mounting. I'm sure you could fabricate MDF or plastic frames yourself if you had the tools, but keep in mind that you might need adapters. This is definitely something to look into Crutchfield.

This pair of speakers went into a chevy express. Originally, there were no rear speakers. These speakers connected to a Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS stereo and it sounds great! Added an sub just because I wanted additional bass the radio and speakers could not give. Now the system is awesome!!

Pros: Great sounding speakers

Cons: None so far

You get what you pay for

Written By j2cat, Sharon, Pa. on Monday, February 03, 2014

I installed these speakers along with a RF PBR300X4 amplifier in a Dodge Caliber. Installation was easy enough and the speakers fit with no problem. Sound quality through the factory head unit was fair at best with mid-range being the most acceptable. Once the power was put to these speakers the upper end of the music spectrum came alive with brilliant highs and very clear mid-range. The bass however, pretty much disappeared and what was left turned pretty muddy. Gains through the amp were backed off to prevent distortion which showed up early. Perhaps with a lower powered amp things would sound better but I wouldn't really count on it. These speakers may sound good in a 1976 Duster but I wouldn't recommend using them in much else. Spend the extra money and look for something else, I'm going to.

Pros: Very easy installation, nice looking grilles. Good highs and mid-range.

Cons: Forget the bass, you'll need a sub if you install these speakers.

Pros: easy to install , sound crisp and very clear!

Upgrade from stock

Written By CoSchu, North Dakota on Monday, September 02, 2013

Nice upgrade from stock speakers, highs sound good, however at high volumes you will get bass distortion if unamplified, I have bass blockers installed because I have 2 12" woofers in the trunk. If you aren't running woofers and want bass these will def. need to be amplified, other than that good overall speaker

Pros: Good overall sound

Cons: Evident bass distortion when not amplified

The fit isn't great

Written By Jonny, Industry, PA on Sunday, July 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers sound much better than the stock speakers.

Pros: The composite construction isn't as prone to bending when clamping down the speaker.

Cons: The diameter of the basket is bigger than the opening in the door so that when tightening down the speaker it doesn't seat on the outer edge of the basket. While this isn't ideal, there's enough clearance so the speaker doesn't interfere with replacing the door trim and the sound isn't negatively affected. The Crutchfield supplied mounting adapters are totally useless and I'm not sure why they were included.

Shocker!!

Written By DJ, Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, June 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After reading a few reviews on this product, all stating the same thing; cheap overall speakers. This however is not the case. They may be cheap, but the sound quality is crisp, and can give a good kick. They do have their max out but i barely ever hit those points being that it it gets too loud. Like Super Loud without clipping. I would recommend these to anyone on a budget for great speakers.

Pros: Great sound quality for the price

Cons: Not a great BASS Driver, but does give a good kick.
