Overview

Our take on the Pioneer Stage 4 TS-C132PRS

The TS-C132PRS component system features a 5-1/4" woofer with an exceptionally rigid cone made from polypropylene, Aramid fibers, and glass fibers. The woofer's lightweight micro-fiber surround — Pioneer calls it "artificial suede" — holds its shape even when the speaker's driven hard, so you'll enjoy strong, accurate performance. An aluminum center plug improves sound dispersion and dissipates heat for a longer life.

Pioneer Stage 4 PRS Component Speaker System

Pioneer PRS Series component speaker systems deliver superb sound with a wide open soundstage, so you'll hear your music faithfully reproduced and in perfect balance throughout your car's interior. Pioneer designed these component speakers as part of their Stage 4 System, along with the DEX-P99RS receiver, PRS Series amplifiers, TS-S062PRS midrange speakers, and the TS-W252PRS subwoofer, to deliver uncompromised sound quality in your vehicle.

Wide high-frequency performance

Each 1-1/8" polyester soft dome tweeter features a sealed chamber that extends its frequency response much lower than the typical tweeter, for a better transition from the lows to the highs. The lower crossover point also helps to open up the sound as more sonic details are broadcast from the tweeter.

The TS-C132PRS system includes outboard 2-way crossovers built with audiophile-grade components to ensure the highest fidelity. You can choose between two tweeter levels to adjust for the most natural sound in your vehicle. Pioneer put decades of car audio experience to work in creating these components, so power them up with a suitable Pioneer PRS amp and enjoy stunning sound quality as you drive.

stage 4 products rock!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The 1st stage 4 items I bought were the 2-5/8" mids! and I was blown away!(see my seperate review on those!) I haven't put the 5-1/4 mids/woofer through the full test yet,but I am confident that if they perform anything like the little mids then i'm sure i'll be impressed! when they went onsale I was scrambling around my house trying to figure out what I could sell to buy another pair of the little mids(I missed out on the 6-3/4"mids)so bummed! so I settled on the 5-1/4's I think Pioneer woulda made a lot more people happy (including themselves!) had they started the price lower to begin with!

Pros: can't say enough about this line! EXCELLENT!!!

Cons: was the price! but now that its been lowered these flew off the shelf!! I think a lot of guys bought them up only to raise the price on them and double their $$$ online!!! thanks to their greed some of us missed out on some good deals!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

most beautiful sounding speakers I've ever had the pleasure of owning. Absolutely love them. I paired them with the pioneer 2 5/8" midrange. Ran actively off two jbl-Msa-1004 and a Jbl ms-8 processor. Beautiful sounds and beautiful looks

Pros: Very well built. Very strong and very sleek looking. Absolutely love these components.

Cons: None

Crossovers

Woofers

IMX Woofer: Pioneer's proprietary 3-Layer IMX (Injection Molded Matrix) cones are rigid yet lightweight; they significantly reduce mid-to-low range distortion and reproduce a natural sound stage. The woofers' set screw terminals accept bare wire up to 12 gauge.

Tweeters

Soft-Dome Tweeter: The TS-C132PRS component set includes two 1-1/8" soft-dome tweeters with dual neodymium magnets (total weight 0.75 ounces). Pioneer extends tweeter performance to a lower frequency than is typical, creating fuller midrange fidelity and clear, accurate vocals.

Mounting: The tweeters can be flush-mounted using the supplied metal clamps. The supplied plastic mounting cups allow you to surface mount the tweeters in an aftermarket location or mount the tweeters in a factory tweeter location behind a factory installed grille. The surface mounting cups let you position the tweeters at one of two angles, approximately 45° or 15°. Once installed, the tweeters do not swivel.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Factory Mount Angled Surface Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height N/A 1.627" (15° angle)
1.872" (45° angle)
0.587"
Depth 1.464" Screw depth 0.632"
Frame Diameter 2.257" 2.159" 2.17"
Cutout Diameter N/A N/A 1.77"

Crossovers

Passive Crossover Network: The TS-C132PRS features an audiophile-grade outboard passive crossover module for each woofer/tweeter combination. The crossover modules are 2-way with a crossover point of 1,950 Hz and 12dB/octave slope.

Crossover Connections: The gold-plated set screw input and output terminals will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge. Note: No speaker wire or quick slides are provided with the speakers.

Tweeter Level Control: The crossover provides three tweeter level output options; -3 dB, 0 dB (flat), and +3 dB.

Mounting: There are four supplied self-tapping screws for mounting the crossovers in your vehicle.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 5.25"
  • Height: 3.625"
  • Depth: 3.5" (plus wire thickness)

Indeed they can. The tweeter itself has a non-removable bezel on the front. I was able to surface mount them on my door panels by drilling a hole into the panel of sufficient size to slip the body of the tweeter into. The 'lip' of the bezel is large enough to hide any remaining rough areas left by the drill bit (though i cleaned these up as much as possible. I then secured them with an adhesive (an epoxy or even a silicon-based glue could work) to hold them in there -though the hole i drilled was sufficiently tight-fitting enough. Good luck!
