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-A6964R 3-way speakers feature 6x9" woofers with a stiff Aramid-reinforced polypropylene cone that ensures clarity in your music's bass and percussion. A highly elastic polymer surround helps keep cone movement under control, for smooth, tight bass. The 2-1/4" polyester fiber cone fills 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.

Product Highlights:

  • 6x9" 3-way car speakers (pair)
  • mica-injected polypropylene woofer with elastic polymer surround
  • 3/8" Mylar balanced dome tweeter
  • 2-1/4" polyester fiber cone midrange
  • power range: 2-40 watts RMS (400 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 31-37,000 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.

Product Research


Woofers: Each speaker features an IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) cone woofer interlaced with carbon graphite and long aramid fibers and a 9.5-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.

Midranges: Each speaker has a 2-1/4" polyester fiber cone midrange for accurate response with low distortion. The midranges have 1.7 ounce strontium ferrite magnets.

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

1989 Mazda B2200

Written By Double Deuce, Puyallup , Washington on Wednesday, October 31, 2012

I have these mounted on the front lower bottom of the door underneath the door handle in a 1989 Mazda B2200 Regular Cab. Had to shorten the door handles a little and made wood enclosures for the speakers about 2" thick to extend it out from the door panel so the rear speaker magnet would clear the inside of the door cavity.Have it hooked to a Kenwood CD and old 75Watt kenwood amp. These things rock , early Van Halen , Iron Maiden , Zakk Wylde Black Label society, Country Music.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Great Speakers

Written By DRED, Ottawa, Canada on Monday, October 08, 2012

Speakers sound great, I put them in my 2005 civic coupe (SI-G,EX) The site says they won't fit but do perfectly in fact I Used the original screws and holes to mount. They also clear the trunk springs by 1/2 inch or so

Pros: Great sounding speakers dont need amp to run

Cons: site sould be updated to reflect they fit 2001-2005 civic coupe without modification

Great sound for price

Written By CraigJ, Troy, IL. on Saturday, August 04, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers to replace the stock 6x9's in my daughter's car. These are an upgrade from the factory speakers and have good audio response and crisp sound, especially in the mid and high ranges. The low range is a little weak, so if you're looking for thundering bass, you may want to look at a more expensive speaker or add a sub. Installation was a snap with the provided Crutchfield instructions and wiring harness.

Pros: Clean, crisp sound. Easy install

Cons: Weak low range

2009 Jeep Patriot - standard stereo system

Written By Wayne, Little Rock, AR on Friday, July 27, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are a nice, economical upgrade to the factory installed sound system in the Jeep Patriot Sport. You can hear the highs and lows much more clearly. The Crutchfield installation instructions and wiring harnesses make it easy for anyone to install these speakers.

Pros: Very simple upgrade to the standard sound system, with a nice improvement in sound.

Cons: These speakers won't ever sound like a mega buck system, but they don't cost mega bucks either.

Poor Quality

Written By Michael B., Huntington Beach, CA on Sunday, June 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Thoroughly disappointed. I purchased this product as my 2012 Altima came without a rear deck speakers. The guides that Crutchfield provided were very very helpful as I did not realize installing these speakers required me to remove almost all the molding and some 15 screws. So props to Crutchfield on that.

Aside from the installation guide help, the speakers were poor quality. The factory speakers that I have thoroughly outperform these speakers in every way. Bass quality is poor and has to power. Mid's and Highs are decent but again the front speakers, which are factory, are superior. I have had 3 different people ride in my car and all can easily notice the lack of power and quality (even my GF who is not very audio savvy).

I purchased 2 sets of Pioneers about 8 years ago for my old car and was very impressed. I wanted to remain loyal to the brand due to the quality I received in the past and the cost/value quotient. I was disappointed this time. I will be reaching out to Crutchfield team for assistance on returning these speakers and trading up for a more expensive brand with a more proven track record.

Please consider a different product.

Pros: Cost

Cons: Sound quality, power.

Awesome Speakers, very crisp sound

Pros: easy to install

Excellent for audio.

Written By I bump to Kenwood, Illinois on Sunday, May 13, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are great if you're looking for something to give you good audio, the bass is ok. But really if you're looking for bass get a subwoofer, this compliments subs greatly.

Pros: Good, clean audio.

Cons: Not a lot of bass from them, but if you want bass you should get a sub.

Good upgrade to factory speakers

Written By Chowell, Ohio on Friday, April 13, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price these speakers are not bad at all. Huge upgrade over factory 6X9's with very clear midrage and tweeters but the bass response is a little weak. I have these Pioneers wired up to a Sound Ordnance M4075 along with a 12" Mtx 5500. Overall a good buy but if you are looking for a set of 6X9's with a little more low end I would recommend to spend a little more money and upgrade.

Pros: 3 way speaker at a good price, clear mids and highs, easy install

Cons: bass response

Great low cost upgrade

Written By Rik C., San Antonio, TX on Monday, April 02, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price, these speakers are nearly unbeatable in sound quality! Definitely far superior than the factory speakers they replaced.

Pros: 3-way speakers good price great sound quality good construction materials

Cons: none so far

Great Upgrade

Written By RiceCracker, Orlando on Friday, February 03, 2012

I bought a set of these from bestbuy and i put them in my 2001 toyota solara SE. they are definitely a great convenient upgrade from my stock ones. Bass is a little lacking at first but when you adjust to the FAD accordingly you do not notice any distortion. I am the envy of my friends and am now going to be putting a set into my friends 2008 dodge avenger.

Pros: cheap, convenient, good sound, simple installation

Cons: bass and fad are constantly adjusted.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put these in a 2004 Toyota Corolla to replace the stock speakers. Had to drill new holes, but it wasn't terribly hard. These speakers are a HUGE upgrade. Can definitely notice a big difference in sound quality and even quite a bit more bass. It isn't window rattling bass like you'd get with a sub, but for a compact car with a stock deck it is pretty good. Would definitely recommend.

Pioneer TS-A6964R

Written By Buck, Melbourne, FL on Sunday, August 21, 2011

I installed these Pioneer speakers in my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 doors. These speakers are a direct replacement for the factory 6 x 9's even though Crutchfield indicates they will not fit. There is more than enough room for any speaker that has a top mount depth of 2 7/8". These Pioneers have a nice crisp sound that is more powerful than the Sony 5 1/4s that I replaced. This is the way to go for better sound than factory speakers and the price is right.

Overall quality, performance, and value

Written By BrentD, Albany, NY on Saturday, July 09, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers put out a great amount of clear sound. I do not have an amplifier and they still are very loud and do not lose sound quality unless you really crank the volume. The price was right for these speakers and Crutchfield made it very easy to install them into my 2005 Toyota Corolla. For those who are interested in the looks of the speakers, they are very good looking speakers with the covers that come along with them. A++

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got these speakers to replace the OEM set on my 2004 Toyota Corolla.

They lack a little bit on the bass but overall they sound much better than the original speakers.

I have a Kicker sub which compliments this set nicely.

Great speakers for the price

Written By Milagrowl, Columbus, OH on Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've always been satisfied with the price, quality, and value of Pioneer speakers
and this item is no different. One of the most simple and cost effective ways to
improve the sound of your stock head unit. The sound is crisp, mids are a little
sharp, but tolerable, and nice body on the bass range. From past experience, if
you add an amplifier, these speakers will blow you away for the price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got these for my wife's car and the difference is great. She doesn't even have
an amp connected and the sound is so clear and no distortion. If your looking
for something to replace factory speakers these will do. Not too powerful just
perfect for the wife.

Written By CR, CA on Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Once the originals (paper coned factory speakers) were removed, installation
went well. It was necessary to drill all new holes for the speakers attachment to
rear shelf. Once installed, everything worked fine (vast improvement). I had to
splice the wires that came in the box with the included connectors (wires for
included connectors were too short). Master sheets helped a lot.

Great Deal

Written By rick, Snohomish WA on Thursday, February 24, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Although there is no recomended 6x9 for the front doors on my 97 Ram 2500 extended
cab 4x4, I took some measurements and did some comparitive shopping for top mount
depth. I found these fit perfectly, however, no room for a baffle. This 6x9 had the lowest
and highest frequency range, with a pwr rating perfect for a stock Dodge stereo. They do
not have the "color" that a 'high end' speaker might have, but there is No distortion
through the full volume range at full bass or treble. They push way more air than the
stock 5 & 1/4's. Thank you again Crutchfield!

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Pioneer TS-A6964R

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You'll need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
These speaker connectors are handy if you're running new speaker wire or if your speakers have oversized terminals.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
If your stereo doesn't cut the deep bass from your full-range speakers, a set of bass blockers can help prevent distortion and give you cleaner bass too.
