Treated Cloth Surrounds: Each woofer uses a treated cloth surround for improved durability.

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1-3/16" PEI (Polyetherimide) balanced dome tweeter for crisp, clear highs.

4/2 Hole Compatibility: The speaker tabs can be removed allowing you to use the speakers in 4-hole or 2-hole (size 4T) applications.

Pioneer TS-G1044R Review

Written By AdamB, Spring, TX on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought these to replace the speakers in the rear doors of my 2004 WRX wagon. PO had installed 5-1/4" 2-way Kickers in the rear doors (and used sheet metal screws to attach the speakers!). As the factory mounting brackets were gone I make mounting rings out of 1/4" MDF. The speakers fit like factory and sound better than the Kickers despite being smaller. Guess the prior mounting method distorted the basket of the larger Kickers. Love the crisp sound from the Pioneers. Need an amp and sub to give the whole system a little more punch. (Installed Pioneer TS-A1305C in the front doors and a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X798 at the same time - see my reviews for those items.)
Pros:
Good quality, crisp clean sound, nice speakers for the money.
Cons:
None really. Just wish they were bigger for more bass response.

Another great deal from Crutchfield.com

Written By Jimenez J., Los Angeles, Ca on Friday, July 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When these speakers are priced this low, what more could you ask for? Plus I like how Crutchfield always saves you the time and headache of finding the appropriate harness and whatever other little components you might need. Anyways, since these speakers are 2 in 1, they produce a good enough sound to cover most mid and high range frequencies. Although the Pioneer TS-G1044R are not big enough to produce that low bass, for what they cost, what more do you want? They do what they were designed to do and they do it well.
Pros:
Clean mid and high range thanks to the 2 in 1 design.
Cons:
Not enough bass.

Pioneer TS-G1044R

Written By Anonymous, Williamsburg, VA on Thursday, January 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It is supposed to be the exact fit for the rear deck speakers on a 2001 Grand Prix Bose w/o onstar. However, the speaker base is too large to fit the factory-installed Bose shelf and the mounting holes are not even close. But 5 stars for Crutchfield, as they are trying to do everything possible to make it right.
Pros:
Looks nice.
Cons:
Doesn't fit.

Only lasted 3 months

Written By Austin, Louisville, KY on Thursday, July 19, 2012
 
These speakers were easy to install in my 1999 Jeep Wrangler, and they sounded good for a little bit. But after a month the quality started to decrease. And now, three months after installation, one of the speakers is producing a scratchy, tinny sound. I play my music at low volumes, and nobody else uses my jeep, so the speaker was not damaged by volume. I am contacting pioneer, but there's not much I can do as my box got thrown away.
Pros:
Good clear sound, clear highs and strong mids- for a time
Cons:
Speakers have deteriorated at normal volume at mid RMS power. Now the sound is annoying to listen to

Great upgrade from stock: '92 4Runner

Written By Domitus, NoCo on Friday, April 06, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sounds good, handles volume well, good separation between the highs and lows/mids. Not as powerful on the low end as I would have hoped, even with the 4Runner's speakers boxes, but they are 4" speakers and really aren't meant for that. I had recently installed some 6.5" Infinity two-ways in a friends car, and they BUMPED, so I was a bit disappointed that these couldn't match it, but again: 4" speakers, ya know? Huge improvement over stock.

The instructions were pretty good but didn't mention that on the face of the speaker box this attaches to there is a small, curved ridge that will keep the speaker from sitting entirely flat. You would either have to take it off with a Dremel, or just bend one of the screws tabs over it. I just bent the tab and it is secure and sits flush. The holes in the speaker box don't entirely match up, so I just predrilled like a 1/16" hole for all of them and then used the new screws that came with it. Worked fine. The kit came with everything I needed, no problems there.

To summarize: sounds pretty good for 4" speakers, I am very happy with the purchase, the instructions missed some minor details but nothing that common sense can't over come. I would recommend to a friend and am very happy with the purchase and certainly with Crutchfield.
Pros:
Good sound for what they are. Excellent upgrade from stock. Clear separation of different frequencies. All necessary parts included. Good price and fast shipping.
Cons:
Minor modifications necessary for a 2nd gen 4Runner that were not detailed in the instructions.

Excellent

Written By Mark M., Altadena, CA on Tuesday, April 03, 2012
 
These speakers fit perfectly in the space provided to replace my original speakers in the back of my 1991 Geo Storm Hatchback 2 + 2. After 21 years, the originals literally disintegrated. For 4 inch speakers, I don't know what would be any better. No modifications needed, fit and work perfectly. Nice sound. Better then OEM.

Pioneer TS-G1044R

Written By Kozy, BEND, OREGON on Saturday, February 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Any speaker will be only as good as its placement. My speakers replaced Jensen speakers in my truck doors. They are probably a bit less sound wise than the Jensen when new. (The Jensen speakers had a larger magnet as was a much heavier speaker.) Considering the size and the placement of the speaker, I doubt there will be any great improvement with other brands. That is of course only my opinion and I have not installed a number of them to determine quality. All in all price, placement and size of the speaker I am pleased with the result. It should be noted that baffles were installed behind the speakers for enhancement.

My real complaint is that the speakers are not sold with a grill nor are any made available as an option. Since my old Jensen came with a grill, I was able to use them. It appears that Pioneer has a different application in mind for the speakers otherwise would have made a grill available.
