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

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-A1605C component speaker system with multilayer 6-3/4" 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 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. 

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Product Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes component speaker system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 crossovers
  • 6-3/4" multilayer mica-matrix woofer cone with elastic polymer surround
  • 3/4" polyester fiber dome tweeter
  • power range: 5-60 watts RMS (350 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 34-32,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • woofer top-mount depth: 2-3/16"
  • woofer grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Good Punch

Written By Super sound, Tennessee on Friday, September 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound. Good highs and Lows

Great Component System!

Written By Tee Rap, Metairie, LA on Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are great components for this price point. Installed in the front doors & dash of my Chevy Trailblazer w/ Bose system & they sound much better than the Sony XS-GS1720S I had previously. These Pioneer's have a great SPL & a great frequency range especially on the low end which was my main reason for purchasing. I find it hard-pressed to find the same specs for any other competing component system at any price point.

Pros: Great SPL; great frequency range; nice sound

2004 Honda CR-V

Written By Overkill, San Diego, CA on Monday, March 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these in my CR-V with the help of a local stereo shop because the kit that came with the speakers wasn't sized appropriately to mount them. They helped me cut out the factory speakers from the mounts and use those instead, then screw the speakers directly into the door panel. Other than that, the speakers themselves are okay, but kinda lose their quality when I start getting into the "I want to play loud music in the parking lot of a concert venue before the show" levels. But, for road-legal usage, these puppies are pretty solid. I think they were the right buy for my budget but if I had more money to spend, I would have picked up something on the higher end that might not have had the max volume capped by the speakers.

Pros: Audio sounds a point (see review/below)

Cons: Can't handle past ~34/40 volume on the Pioneer HU; sound gets distorted Installation ended up needing a local shop; Crutchfield tech support was helpful but I wasn't comfortable drilling into the door on my first solo speaker/HU job

surprisingly good component speaker

Written By Mike, New York on Sunday, February 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these in my Jeep Wrangler (aftermarket amp w/base factory system, upgraded to NAV head unit, no subwoof). Great sound with surprisingly good bass at decent volume - mids and highs come through crisp and loud - now I'm satisfied w/the bass and won't need to cram a subwoofer into my 2 door. Tweeters fit perfectly in factory location with only a strip of foam tape around the housing to hold them in snugly. Be sure to squeeze spade terminals for a tight fit.

Pros: Easy install, good bass, clear highs

Cons: crossover wiring could be a heavier gauge.

Doesnt work for the my jeep

Written By JDRVA, Virginia on Monday, January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tweeters supplied when wired to the original line are way over powered for the 2000 jeep grand Cherokee with the infinity system. Like wayyyyyy to much power.

Pros: The subs sound great

Cons: The tweeters were over powered, and they didn't fit in the stock spots on the dash, they are 2.75 inch tweeters

Great sound quality crisp highs not very low lows but far better than stock. The cone and surround on the mid leaves a bit to be desired material wise but they do the job.

Pioneer 2-way component speaker system

Written By Justin, Melbourne, FL on Monday, August 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced all of my 08 jetta gli factory paper cone speakers and tweeters with this set. The speakers mount up great and produce an impressive amount of sound. The music is crystal clear and far more realistic than what my factory speakers made. I expected the cones would produce a nice bit of bass punch, but they instead simply create clear bass notes. Still a great system!

Pros: Affordable, clear, and powerful

Cons: Not much bass

Better than expected

Written By Chris D, Bessemer, Al on Tuesday, July 22, 2014

These are on the low end price wise for components. However I am very impressed with the sound. I have them amplified with 40 watts RMS Fosgate amp. The tweeters give far more presence than the old in dash tweeters. I have them mounted on the front door's A pillars. The bass is good enough to feel the door vibrate. And that is with sound dampening used on the metal surfaces in the door.

Pros: For inexpensive component speakers these sound great.

Cons: The mid bass can be boomy when loud on some songs. I cannot take off a star for that because I haven't heard any other component speakers in the car. These sound far better than the 3 way full range speakers I had in before. I plan to get a new head unit with a built in parametric equalizer to adjust the boominess out. My current Pioneer unit only has low mid and high adjustments.

Good as long as you have a sub

Written By JBW, Morgantown, WV on Monday, June 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very detailed mids and highs. The lows are a little lacking so if you plan on not having subs, you will definitely need to adjust the loudness and EQ on your HU. I tested these for a little while with my subs turned off and found that you can get a pretty decent sound with some tweaking. Obviously all car doors will have different resonance characteristics and all head units will sound a little different so you should probably take just about every review on this site with a grain of salt.

HU used: Pioneer DEH-X8500BS Car: 2010 Impreza

Pros: Crisp highs and mids. Reasonable sized crossovers that I was able to hide inside the door itself. Both surface and angled mounts for the tweeters. The box is perforated to produce cardboard rings that are the same mounting size as your speakers and tweeters so you can do a little pre-planning.

Cons: Thin bass.

Great Deal

I really love the quality of these speakers. I bought this with a pioneer head unit and was even able to get a discount on these speakers. The only negative that I have is that the tweeters are very small and even with the mounting gear, they would not fit in my tweeter holes.

Written By Sheldon, Northern California on Sunday, March 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good speakers for the price. Built nice, not cheap at all. Sounds good in my truck, clean highs and good mids with decent lows. Hard to tell exactly how good the lows are since my Chevy silverado has the Bose system with the sub. And yes, Contrary to what you might find people saying on the forums, you can easily replace your stock speakers that came with your Bose system and they will sound great and work fine. I have no issues at all. Don't bring your system down by keeping those stock junk speakers. Bose or not, they still are made with cheap materials. These pioneer speakers work great, and are a big improvement to my system.

Pros: Good sound and good materials, not cheap materials

The speakers sound great my only problem is the box given to hook the speakers and tweeters up is impossible to reach where both are located in the vehicle.

No Bass

Written By Levi H, Ohio on Thursday, December 05, 2013

I installed these in my 2003 Chevy Cavalier a few months ago, the sound very clear, but even with my 22 watt RMS Kenwood radio they still had very little bass coming out. The only bass that I was really getting was from the 6x9 3 way Kickers that I had in the rear deck.

Pros: Very clear, durable feel

Cons: No Bass

Written By DGL, Milford, MA on Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers sound great and were reasonably easy to install. Most complicated part was removing and replacing the old tweeters with the new ones. This required some careful prying and filing of the old mounts plus a dab of superglue.

Pros: One installed in the bracket, slipped right into the original mounting location with no problems.

Cons: None that I'm aware of.

Pioneer TS-A1605C

Written By bigKsoda, Russell Springs, KY on Monday, September 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After a speaker stopped working on our 2003 Silverado; it was handy to replace the front door speakers with these Pioneer component set. With a little dremel action on the tweeter mount they we right at home. This speaker set has a great sound to them, unfortunately they lack a little in the bass department. This is not an issue if you are running a sub, but by their selves they drop off pretty quick on lows. Seem to be well constructed even though they are manufactured in China; overall happy with the purchase.

Pros: Better midrange and highs than the factory speakers. Decently priced for an entry level component set.

Cons: The bass response from these are a little weak; the factory 2003 Silverado door speakers had better bass response.

Excellent Upgrade

Written By SteveA, Dallas, TX on Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Terrific speakers. I upgraded a factory system (Honda) and noticed an immediate improvement. I didn't have high expectations, as I wasn't changing the head unit or adding amplification right away. However, with stock equipment, these speakers were noticeably better, even providing clearer Bass in harmony with the factory subwoofer. Now I just need to decide if I'm going to go through the trouble of amplification to get more, or just enjoy what I have. Only thought is that the tweeters sound a little harsh, but I would imagine that this could be EQ'd to compensate, should I change the head unit for a more powerful system that would allow me to tune for my vehicle.

Excellent mids and highs, but the bass is really lacking.

Huge first step in upgrading sound quality

Written By Robert I, Charleston, WV on Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Picked these up to replace the stock full range speakers in the front door of my 2012 Ford Focus and I'm happy to say I am very pleased. Still using the factory system but am powering them with a 60x2 RMS amp and the sound quality has increased ten fold. The highs are crisp and clean, the imaging has improved dramatically, the mid-range is no longer garbled & muddy. Even the low end has improved. I've heard details never heard before, even from my home Onkyo/Polk Audio 7.2 A/V system, in the Rock, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal that I listen to. The higher the volume the brighter they sound. With that said, I would definitely recommend a sub to accompany them and fill in the what's missing on the bottom end, especially as the volume increases and the highs really come alive as the lows slowly drop off, as you would expect from a 6 1/2" woofer. Thinking of picking up a second pair for my rear doors, just have to figure out where to mount the tweeters, and will definitely be adding a sub to complete the transformation from a bland 4 speaker factory stereo to a respectful audio system. Also, must give props to the Crutchfield advisers in helping me pick a pair in my price range guaranteed to fit my factory locations.

Pros: Dramatically improved mids, highs and imaging, bargain price.

Cons: Wish the 34-32,000Hz frequency range output just a touch more on the low end but again, not really a con when considering the speaker size.and the open air factory "inclosure".
