Our take on the Pioneer TS-A1674R

by Jo Greene
Pioneer

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.

You jump in your ride and turn on your favorite song — you're straining to hear the snare drum, but it's still just barely audible. And that dull, fuzzy-sounding bass guitar is just about breaking your heart. Pioneer TS-A Series speakers bring your music back into focus with precise, superior reproduction of instruments and vocals, so all those details you love will really pop.

Pioneer's TS-A1374R 3-way speakers feature 6-1/2" woofers with stiff Aramid-reinforced polypropylene cones that ensure clarity in your music's bass and percussion. Highly elastic polymer surrounds help keep cone movement under control, for smooth, tight bass. The 1-5/8" cones fill in all the midrange details for lush vocals and crisp instruments.

Soft dome tweeters deliver warm, dimensional treble, so you'll hear all the overtones that give your music ambiance. The built-in crossovers ensure that the right frequencies go to the tweeter, midrange, and woofer, so your music sounds natural, just as the artist intended.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.

Features

Woofers: Each speaker features an IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) cone woofer interlaced with carbon graphite and long aramid fibers and a 7.6-ounce strontium ferrite magnet. This IMPP cone design provides the strength and rigidity that powerful bass requires. The high-density, compressed internal architecture is resilient and transfers sound very quickly. The result is full-bodied, rich sound.

Surrounds: For durability and a smooth response, each woofer uses an elastic polymer surround.

Midranges: Each speaker has a 1-5/8" polyester fiber cone midrange for accurate response with low distortion. The midranges have 0.7 ounce strontium ferrite magnets.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 3/8" dome tweeter made from PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) film for crisp, clear highs.

Mounting: The speakers can be mounted in standard 6-1/2" openings, 4-hole 6-1/2" openings, or 6-3/4" openings.

Awesome Speakers

Written By LC, Maryland on Friday, October 19, 2012

I install these in my 04 Chev Silverado after blowing the (not recommended) Sound Ordnance speakers. These speakers are leaps above the Sound Ordnance speakers I previously installed.

Time will tell

Written By Troubled, Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, October 02, 2012
 
replace the original speakers with these and was thrilled. About a month out of warranty I heard the disturbing rattle and found the cone had begun to separate from the edge . Checked the other speaker and it was doing the same thing in the exact same spot. ow i have to fade all my sound to the back speakers till I decide what to get next. will not get these again.
Pros:
good sound
Cons:
didn't last

Worth the money

Written By Tyler, Frederick, MD on Saturday, August 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these in my 2010 Civic using the factory head unit. I was advised that these are very efficient and can work well with low power applications (such as mine). The results are very good. Excellent clarity, no distortion and plenty loud. Installation was a breeze. Seriously, don't go cheap with the foam surrounds. Can't wait to connect my trusty basslink to complete this job! Oh, also, I dynamatted the doors and their are no rattles.
Pros:
Efficient, loud, clear
Cons:
Less bass than factory speakers but hey, that's what subs are for! Oh and keep in mind the factory head unit I kept.

Good sound

Written By CraigJ, Troy, IL. on Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers were a definite upgrade over the factory speakers in my 03 Silverado. They have good, clear mid and high range sound. Low range could be better, but is still better than the stock speakers. Speaker options in the extended cab Silverado are pretty limited, so I'll probably be adding a powered sub in the near future to round out the sound. Install was a breeze with the provided Crutchfield instructions and wiring adapters.
Pros:
Clear, precise mod and high ranges
Cons:
Low range could be better

Speakers for 2004 Chevy Crew Cab

Written By Mike S, Arlington TX on Sunday, July 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good speaker for the money. Installed in front doors only. Disconnect the factory tweeters. The tweeters in these speakers are plenty. Factory presets will have too much treble and mid-range anyway. Start custom settings with treble all the way down, mid-range a little below half and bass a little above half.
Pros:
Easy to install. Instructions were reasonably accurate. Decent bass for a small speaker.

2012 Honda Civic LX Sedan

Written By wgallon09, Cleveland, OH on Saturday, July 14, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great. Even though they are listed as not fitting in the back of the car, I had no problems at all with putting them there. It says that you will need to cut the existing grill, but I did not have that problem. The bracket was a little too big, but I put two new holes for each bracket towards the back, and with just those they were secure, and then the panel clipped right next to the third screw position and they do not move at all, as well as have plenty of clearance. These things have amazing bass for speakers. Don't expect anything like a subwoofer, but running these off of the stock stereo with no amp the bass output is plenty for me to enjoy dubstep with the drops and rock/metal and actually hear the drums and bass guitar.
Pros:
Great sound quality Incredibly loud Low power requirement
Cons:
Needed to rig the back a bit, but again, they were listed as not able to fit so I would imagine this is why.

Excellent budget friendly speakers. Replaced our son's front speakers in his Honda Prelude for his 20th birthday. Fit perfectly, sound very clear and he loves them. He loved the difference in the sound.

Better then factory, but bright if you have a factory tweeter

Written By David B, St. Paul, MN on Thursday, June 28, 2012
 
These are a littler better then the stock speakers in my 2010 GMC Sierra Crew, they do not distort as much under bass but get a little too bright if you have factory tweeters. They appear to be well built and should last a long time. If you don't have factory tweeters and don't want to add a sub, but are still looking for better sound without spending too much money, these will work well for you
Pros:
Good quality, better then others in the price range, better then stock speakers all around
Cons:
A little bright with factory tweeters

Awesome sound

Written By REA, Longmont, CO on Friday, June 15, 2012
 
The installation information says they are not compatible for a 2008 Kia Spectra, but I had them installed with no modifications in my Kia. I had the factory speakers replaced and the difference is huge! The factory speakers weigh less than a lb while these are closer to 2 lbs. The difference is unbeleiveable. Great bass, mid-range and treble.
Pros:
Crisp sound - I can hear the words now. Great bass - no vibration at high volume.
Cons:
None

1999 Blazer 4 door

Written By Michael, Lee's Summit, MO on Friday, June 01, 2012
 
I picked these up to go along with my new Sony head unit and they kick something serious!! Love the highs and mids that these guys put out, the bass is on above expectations being that they are only 6.5" speakers. They fit right into the existing door locations on my Blazer (both front and rear) the only thing I had to do was change the factory mtg hole locations. No big deal since these bolt into a plastic "bucket", the self taping screws worked just fine for this. These really pour on the sound!
Pros:
Great sound all around including very nice bass! Price is right!
Cons:
None so far!

Good reasonably priced speakers

Written By MPMeterman, WV on Monday, May 14, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these to replace the front door speakers in my older Tahoe (which are notorious for falling apart). The Crutchfield instructions were clear on how to get the door panels apart and get everything back together. They sound very good and I'm pleased with their performance. My only gripe is that the factory speakers were designed thicker and fit more flush with the door panel....I could have mounted these to the door panel to fix that issue, but I felt that wasn't as secure.
Pros:
Easy to install with supplied instructions and harness adapter.
Cons:
They don't quite fit flush with the door panel...which would be nearly impossible to do without building a custom mount.

Great Sound

Written By Mike, Fort Collins on Thursday, April 19, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
With a size restriction, these speakers are amazing...esp for the price! I demo'ed other speakers, some as much as $50 more for a pair, and no other 6.5" sounded as good. I am happy with my purchase
Pros:
Great highs and mids (awesome for vocals and guitars)
Cons:
As with most smaller (less than 6x9), the bass isn't great but the lows are crisp and clean.

INCREDIBLE SOUND, difficult installation in 2001-05 Civic

Written By 2002 Civic Sedan, Chicago, IL on Wednesday, March 07, 2012
 
While I had to take an angle grinder to the speaker opening in my doors and make a frankenstein hybrid of my old rear baskets to make these fit, these speakers sound INCREDIBLE. Crystal clear highs, perfect mids, and thumping bass (for not having a subwoofer/amp). Mine are powered by a Pioneer DEH 4400 HD head unit with no extra amp. These speakers are an unbelievable value. Really blow the factory speakers away.
Pros:
Incredible sound, crank the volume to 30/35 and they don't distort. No need for a subwoofer unless you really need it thumping. Unbelievably clear sound.
Cons:
The Crutchfield installation guide does not address specifics for installation into my vehicle as far as making them fit in the OEM openings. The rears were too SMALL for the opening, so the factory baskets had to be heavily modified, as well as the speakers themselves (Bench grinder, round file, etc.) Total time just for the rears was around 3-4 hours. For the front speakers, they were too BIG for the opening, so I had to take an angle grinder to widen the opening in the door a bit.

All around a great deal for 3 way speakers. The Mids are very clear, and the highs very crisp. The installation replacing my factory speakers was very clean and the finished results are beautiful. I purchased 4 and my system sounds amazing.
Pros:
Highs are very crisp Mids are very clear Bass kicks for what a 6 1/2 can do

I installed a set of these Pioneer speakers as replacements for the factory speakers in 02 Sliverado 2500 HD pickup. The other ones had come apart. When I ordered them the sales person was very knowledgeable & helpfull explaining how to do the job. When I recieved them I just followed the spec sheet & the how to install. Worked perfectly. Sounds much better than when the factory ones were new. Great Job,Great service
Pros:

Better than I expected

Written By Vinu, Harrisonburg, VA on Tuesday, February 21, 2012
 
I got these speakers to replace my front factory ones and they sound AMAZING. I am fairly new to car audio and thought that my speakers were okay ( Nissan Versa SL 2011). I was really stupid.. haha. I hadn't noticed how much music I was missing until I got these. The highs sound clear, the mids are very nice and the bass is MUCH MUCH stronger than what I had in my factory speakers. I initially wanted to get a sub to balance out the sound but I don't think I really need one now. I'm probably going to eventually make my own enclosure down the line. But for now there isn't an immediate need.

All in all, these speakers were a great buy!
Cons:
none

These peakers sound awesome just being powered by a 20 amp head unit. The base is sub woofer quality, mids are great, just be warned highs are really high...
Pros:
Great sound without a big price
Cons:
Poor fit for my Mini Cooper. The rep said it was an exact fit for my rear speakers and they were way off.

Replaced factory "blown" speakers in a 2001 Silverado, only has 2 door speakers. There is no way to describe the difference! Also purchased a Alpine CDE-121 so Son is very happy. 1st purchase from Crutchfield very pleased. The installation gear and instructions were great. Shipping and condition were spot on.

Pioneer TS-A1674R

Written By Brad M, Greenbelt, MD on Wednesday, September 14, 2011
 
I installed these in my 93 Miata even though Crutchfield said they wouldn't fit. They did. (better fact checking perhaps?) Anyways, these are actually pretty good for what they are. The Miata only has these 2 speakers for the whole system and it gives sufficient output even with the windows and top down at 80mph. Could use a bit more low end but hey, these are 6.5" speakers. I didn't expect much low end. Gotta find a place in the car for a sub!

For regular applications though, I do recommend these if you may be looking for a low price, decent quality speaker. Good job Pioneer.

TS-A1674R + Subaru WRX

Written By Mark S, Denton TX on Thursday, March 31, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers made a world of difference in my car despite the fact that I
required a shallow depth speaker to fit in my front doors (as clearance with the
windows is an issue). The speakers that were replaced were off-brand
components that were on the car when i got it.... best part? no tweeters to be
found anywhere.... so low and behold, these Pioneer speakers really bring out
the high notes that I was literaly missing out on!!

(HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SPEAKERS)

*sigh*.... Subaru uses a propietary bolt pattern for their speakers that only uses
3 screws instead of the typical 4 so the factory speaker brackets have more of
a triangular shape not square so if you own an impreza and want new
speakers that is why crutchfield.com gives you a warning once you select your
car in the drop down menu. They recomend 4" speakers but the won't fit
because the cutout in the door frame is literaly the same shape as a 4"
speaker... yes, the cutout is a square (more or less) for a triangular speaker.
You can fit a 5.25" speaker but you need to find a set of subaru specific
speaker adapters (I got mine from iaperformance.com).
