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.

Side-view of Pioneer TS-A1685R 6-1/2"/6-3/4" speaker

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

Built to make your music rock

Pioneer equipped the TS-A1685R 6-1/2" 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, a tweeter, and a super 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:

  • 6-1/2" 4-way car speakers (pair)
  • multilayer mica-matrix woofer with elastic polymer surround
  • 3/4" lightweight diaphragm dome midrange
  • 3/8" PET dome tweeter and 3/8" PET dome supertweeter
  • power range: 5-60 watts RMS (350 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 34-30,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-3/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your factory 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.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The multi-layer mica matrix cone was developed to provide an extra light, yet rigid diaphragm to reproduce full, rich sound.

Surrounds: For durability and a smooth response, each woofer uses a rubber (synthetic) surround.

Midranges: Each speaker has a 3/4" lightweight polyester diaphragm dome midrange with a 0.2 ounce neodymium magnet.

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

Mounting: Without an adapter, the TS-A1685R speakers fit standard 6-3/4" and 4-hole 6-1/2" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit standard 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but new screw holes must be drilled.

Great factory replacement

Written By Eddie k, New Hampshire on Thursday, December 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers based on the reviews that I read. Some others have stated that there is not a lot of bass. Let me start by saying that when properly installed, with dynamat, I'm overly impressed. I installed them in the front doors of a new civic sedan while utilizing the factory head unit. I can't believe the amount of sound, bass and detail that these speakers produce. Amazing upgrade.

Pros: Great detail. Plenty of bass when installed properly.

Cons: None

The Speakers are OK. But I didn't need 4 ways

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My factories were crackling so the always-helpful Crutchfield support team matched me up with these speakers for my work pickup and I couldn't be happier. The install was a cinch and the sound makes for happy travels. I can't brag enough on Crutchfields excellent customer service and support. Happy, happy, happy!

Pros: Great sound for reasonable prices!

Written By Eduardo, Lenexa, KS on Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love those speakers! Like others said, they have an excelent sound and some BASS. I have some problem to fit them in my Passat Wagon 1999 but with a little skills and tools, it is not a problem. I keep them hidden inside the door. The car still looking 100% original.

Pros: Excellent sound and too much treble because it is 4 - way. I´m very happy!

Cons: Should be 6 1/2 or 6 1/4 to fit exactly in Passat Wagon doors. The original speakers suport are amazing quality engeneering and it is a crime cut them off. There are rubbers agaist dust and vibrations and speaker MUST FIT exactly to avoid demage them.

Written By Chris, Austin, TX on Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers sound great! Excellent highs and lows with plenty of mid punch. Great for factory speaker replacement. Be wary of the mounting setup on these. The brackets included by Crutchfield however were too small in diameter for the speakers to bolt to. We mounted them directly to the inner door frame and they work great.

Amazing Sound

Written By Harv, Tucson on Sunday, March 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in a Nissan Frontier, they fit the factory adapter with no problem and the Door panel molding fits right over them. Great sound with lots of bass when Radio settings are just right. Pioneer hits a home run with these Speakers.

Pros: Crutchfield sent adapter kit which was great, but it was not needed. Thanks anyways.

BEAUTIFUL!

These speakers are awesome. The quality is perfect, they even look good in the car. Crutchfield helped me pick them out an worth the money. They were an awesome help. I have bought much more since then. I will stick with Pioneer an Crutchfield. AWESOME!

Pros: Nice looking, loud, good bass, an great quality.

Cons: Zero!

I'm satisfied

Written By Sam, Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, March 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm pleased with the speakers. I had Best Buy install them (that's a story within itself) and enjoy the sound. They are a step up from the factory speakers in my 2011 Jetta. The installer stated that with the brand of car that I have and the technology of it that if I upgrade the stereo the speakers would sound that much better (Has something to do with the way VW desings their systems).

Pros: Descent price. Crisper sound than the factory speakers. Handles loud much while remaining clear.

Cons: None, so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was an Alpine guy originally. How wrong I was. As soon as these were installed in my truck, my heart was changed. The sound coming out of these was significantly more impressive than I anticipated, and the install was much easier than I anticipated. I do recommend an amp if youu run more than two - will just clean up the sound to them so they blow you away.

Pros: Sound, clarity, high, mid, low

Cons: None yet.

Written By Bill H, Lexington, KY on Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

great speakers

Pros: hooked up to a Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS. The head unit pushes these speakers pretty good. I am about to install an amp that is rated for these speakers and we will see how well they sound. running off the head unit sounds great. The highs are great, the mids sound good, the bass is low but not low like a sub. It punches and is deep but its distorts easily. I can't wait for the amp.

Cons: none so far

Pros: None

Cons: Makes u want to buy these for all ur cars. ??

Surprising sound

Written By RB, Houston Tx on Sunday, December 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Terrific sound. I wired these directly to a 5 channel amp with a 8" sub, and they can get incredibly loud with no distortion or loss in sound quality. I even left a larger than normal overlap when setting the pass filters between these and the sub, because their lows sound great. The tweeters make an instant improvement over factory speakers.

Pros: Great sound, value

Cons: None

Great Speaker Value

Great Speaker!!!

Written By Ian G, Phoenix, Arizona on Friday, December 06, 2013

Clear undistorted sound! Great upgrade from my factory speaker in my 1998 chevy silverdo. Looking to ugrade my HU but turned all the with the factory they're loud enough to hear me coming. Would recommend them to a friend and a great foundation for anyone starting to put together their own system. If you're looking for better sound for a reasonable price these are the speakers for you.

Pros: Great clear sound, even when pushed to their limits.

Cons: Not as much bass as I'd like but that's what subs are for anyway!

Sound amazing

Written By Uscgqm, Poulsbo. WA on Sunday, November 17, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound through these speakers is awesome. Crisp and clear with great bass tones. In my car I have four of these and four factory (for now) tweeters and it is more than enough for what I wanted although I believe that these would also be an excellent addition for someone building up a much larger system. I would definitely recommend them.

Pros: Excellent crisp and clear sound. Great bass tones. Perfect on their own or to compliment a larger system

Cons: None at this point and I installed them in the car for about a month ago.

Familiar Pioneer Quality

Written By DMAtx, Dallas, TX on Friday, September 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've used Pioneer audio equipment for years, both in my home and in my car. I installed these TS-A1685Rs in the rear deck of my 2011 Civic sedan, and the improvement in clarity is noticeable already. The speakers need to break in, and I still have my Pioneer head unit and Boston Acoustics amps to install, but I am very pleased with the sound, even at this early stage. In my previous vehicle, my Pioneer speakers served me very well, and I fully expect these to perform even better. I will be installing the Pioneer TS-A1605C component speakers in my front doors to complete my system, once it cools off here in TX. I highly recommend buying from Crutchfield, as you get the speaker adapter rings, speaker harnesses and the invaluable MasterSheets for free!

Pros: Price, value, construction quality, sound clarity, previous experience with Pioneer reliability

Cons: None
