Our take on the Pioneer TS-D6802R

by Buck Pomerantz
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.

Car audio enthusiasts know that replacing your factory speakers is the first step towards better sound. Pioneer TS-D6802R 6"x8" speakers sport innovative technologies and materials that'll put your car's sound miles ahead of where it was.

The journey begins with the innovative woofer — a high-tech composite material made from basalt and Aramid creates a rigid, lightweight cone. This design supplies solid midbass punch with exceptional midrange definition, while its rubber surround ensures smooth cone excursion. An extra-thick stamped metal basket supports the woofer cone, dampening vibrations and resonances that can unduly color your music's natural sound.

The soft-dome tweeter radiates impressive highs, aided by a special wave guide that improves off-axis performance — meaning you'll get better stereo imaging throughout your car. A sealed rear chamber allows the tweeter to reach lower into the midrange to improve the definition of vocals and instruments. The tweeter's compact and powerful neodymium magnet provides excellent performance even when the power levels are cranked.

Features

Woofer Cones: The woofers have dual-layer IMX (Injection Molded Matrix) Aramid/Basalt fiber composite cones. The Basalt fiber is made from natural rock and is interwoven with aramid fiber. This Aramid/Basalt fiber surface layer material is very rigid and maintains an accurate, detailed music reproduction.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds.

1-1/8" Soft Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1-1/8" soft dome tweeter with magnetic fluid and a 0.4 ounce Neodymium magnet. The tweeters are encased in a specially-designed anti-resonant sealed rear chamber. The waveguides in front of the tweeters provide wide sound dispersion.

Tweeter Enclosure: The rear chamber tweeter enclosure extends mid-range frequency for improved vocal imaging and staging.

Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbins: Each speaker has a Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbin for higher power handling.

Built-in 2-Way Crossovers: A 12 dB/octave high-pass filter and 6 dB/octave low-pass filter are attached to each speaker to improve the transition from mid to high frequency. Audiophile-grade capacitors and inductors are used.

Pioneer TS-D6802R are GREAT SPEAKERS

Written By Phil, South Central, ARkansas on Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield, thank you for such a good product at a reasonable price for a radio and speakers. I have a 2006 Mustang GT and I needed to replace my factory radio. The Ford dealer gave me a price which was quit-a-bit higher than your radio. So I decided that I would replace my radio and speakers. Your price was still less. In June of 2014 I bought your your "Kenwood DPX500BT" and "Pioneer TS-D6802R", and "Pioneer TS-A6885R" Speakers. Before I place my order I called in to your technicians for advice on my set up. I was going to get all 4 Pioneer TS-D6802R for my car, and that is when the technician advised me that those speakers would not fit in the front, but ok for the back. With that in mind he and I came to the decision of the Pioneer TS-A6885R speakers for the front door. WOW they are great. In the reviews that I read when I was narrowing down my speakers, there were comments that the speakers were a little weak on BASS. Let me tell you, with my setup they are great, and have plenty of BASS, enough to rattle my windows at ½ volume. Treble is great too. I just wanted to say that my combination is a GREAT setup for me and my car. I will say that my Mustang was a little more difficult to install than I expected. Ford does not make it easy to take out and reinstall the speakers; I had to take apart just about the entire inside to install them.
Pros:
Great Speakers, Good Sound and Instruction for Installation were very correct and helpful
Cons:
Don't know of any

Tweeters could be a little better.

Pioneer TS-D6802R in 2008 Mazda 3

Written By Big Bobby P, Mount Joy, PA on Thursday, September 05, 2013
 
I have a 25 mile commute each way and I recently started driving my wife's Mazda 3 for my commute instead of my truck due to better gas mileage. The stock stereo was awful so the first thing I did was change out the stereo HU for an aftermarket JVC HUr. That alone made a huge improvement in sound quality due to the increased power and EQ capabilities. I was still wanting better sound so I knew the speakers were the next step in the evolution.

I had a set of Pioneer TSD1720c component speakers in a my previous car. Those speakers sounded excellent for the price so I almost went with those since they come with 6x8 adapters. The problem was that I wanted a straightforward install and I would have to mod to get them to work. One of the only drawbacks with those comps were that the tweeter was rather harsh when mounted at ear level so I actually ended up moving them to my kick panels where the tweets sounded much better off axis. Because of these 2 things I decided to just try the 6x8 coax in the TSD model. These are the same tweeters at the component set and there is an actual crossover (not just bass blockers) for this coax system. This essentially IS a component set that is mounted coaxially. Lows and mids go to the woofer and are crossed over so they blend perfectly with the tweets that play the highs.

These sound ALMOST as great as those components. For a straightforward, great sounding 6x8 coax, this is it. Probably the best "coax" speaker on the market.
Pros:
Sound Quality, Ease of Install, Quality Crossover, Powerful midbass, Smooth highs
Cons:
Not Components!

Great upgrade

Written By Byron S, Issaquah WA on Thursday, May 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A great upgrade, sounds great. Just changed speakers with the original factory head unit, no additional amps or subs. Easy direct mount and hook up. By no means a custom big system sound but $$$ well spent on the daily driver. 07 Mazda 3
Pros:
Good balanced sound, speakers are no longer the weak spot in the system.
Cons:
Have not found any yet

Great speakers for a Ford Ranger

Written By Kyluckyman, Hopkinsville, KY on Friday, April 05, 2013
 
These speakers are a great value and sound fantastic in our 2011 Ford Ranger. They are driven by an Alpine CDE-134HD head. We do not have them amped as we like our music a bit loud but not rattling the neighbors knickknacks off their shelving. We listen to everything from old Aerosmith to "X" and all types of country and blues. These speakers deliver an excellent soundstage n the truck and are a joy to listen to.
Pros:
These speakers on paper spec out really nice with a range on something like 30 to 35000 Hz and a efficiency of around 90. They sound so good I think I will pass on getting an amp and a subwoofer but an equalizer might be a consideration.
Cons:
I didn't buy them sooner! They make me want to drive around listening to music all day long!

Great sounding speakers

Written By HotRodder, MN on Monday, April 23, 2012
 
Put these in my 2010 Mustang GT Convertible. The sound is MUCH better than the originals, and a lot better than the Kicker KS680s. Decent bass, low mids and crisp highs. Shop around for better pricing but these are very good speakers.
Pros:
Reasonably priced upgrade over stock.

Pioneer is the way to go!

Written By RyanF, Lathrop, CA on Thursday, July 21, 2011
 
I installed these in my 2008 Mazda 3 and there was NO fitment issues. I have these paired up to a Pioneer DEH - P8300UB deck and i could notice a slight improvement in clarity. Although i dont know there true power because i dont have them amped up yet, but im 100% sure they'll sound crispy clear once they are. Also i talked to a car audio specialist prior to buying these and he said he installed them in another car and sounded great. I dont think you can go wrong with Pioneer!

Replacement for Factory 2002 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4

Written By Tim A, SE Michigan on Monday, December 06, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great DIRECT replacement for my Ford Factory 6x8!! YES IT FITS!
Terrific Buy!~ I wanted a system that would - be reasonably affordable, be simple to install, sound great - all while not altering the factory wiring/trim.
ALSO: While researching, I looked at adding an external amp as a - FUTURE option - not as an immediate need/necessity.
COMPARED TO FACTORY - I LOVE the sound - it's an incredible difference - I cannot believe I did not upgrade sooner! I paired these speakers with head unit, Pioneer DEH-P6200BT.
Upon consulting Pioneer manuf website, I found that THESE speakers classify as a "Stage 3" (3 out of 4; 4 being highest) - and they work VERY well with Pioneer "Stage 3" head unit DEH-P6200BT - speakers still fit nicely in factory speaker position - no modification necessary. Pioneer also rates this set up as being MUCH BETTER than the also available - Pioneer ("Stage 2") 4-way 6x8's TS-A6882R's!
This application rated the TS-D6802R to sound better - EVEN without an external amp! Cost of upgrade is mild - but speaker is rated much, much better by the manufacturer.
NOTE: Crutchfield online catalog currently shows the TS-D6802R does NOT fit application - it does fit perfectly in mine and is rated Pioneer's "6x8 for Ford/Mazda"! I am personally VERY HAPPY with this system.
Last - See my review on the Pioneer DEH-P6200BT head unit and the (5x7) baffles that I installed on this application as well~

2010 Ford Mustang Install

Written By Nat, San Diego, CA on Friday, July 16, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are a much needed improvement from factory speakers for a 2010 Ford Mustang. These speakers do so much to improve the sound clarity and provide clean and powerful sound over the factory speakers. The install went very well thanks to the Mastersheets, although the 2005- 2009 Mustang was close enough to do the speakers. The head units are completely different, so that is not applicable from the mastersheets. The sound has been a significant improvement over the factory speakers and provide much cleaner and crisper sounds with much deeper bass. Lyle was very helpful in verifying the install specs for these speakers. My car now has much better sound now and is that much more of a pleasure to drive. These speakers will definitely compliment any of the factory shaker systems and give a definite improvement from the sound orginally provided in the car.
