Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Woofer: The TS-W255C features
an interlaced Aramid fiber-reinforced IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) cone
woofer. With long Aramid fibers interlacing together inside, this IMPP cone
design provides the strength and rigidity powerful bass sound requires. The
high-density, compressed internal architecture is resilient, stacks up against
high power and transfers sound very quickly. The result is full-bodied, rich
Magnet: The woofer has a dual
mass, high-power 74-ounce magnet.
Surround: The woofer has a
3-layer fiber-woven radial urethane surround.
Voice Coil: The woofer's
4-layer long voice coil design allows expanded piston motion for better
linearity and improved power handling. The 12-slit aluminum voice coil bobbin
helps to reduce voice coil heat and allows for stable bass reproduction and
reinforced power handling capability.
Extended Pole Yoke: The
extended pole yoke extends the magnetic field, greatly improving linearity
during large woofer excursions at high input levels.
Vented Pole Yoke: The vented
pole yoke allows air circulation in the magnetic circuitry to ensure better heat
Recommended Sealed Box
Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.9
cu/ft to 1.1 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is
1.0 cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield.
Vented Box Volume: The
vented box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.99 cu/ft to 1.21 cu/ft.
Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is 1.1 cu/ft, so this
is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. One 3" diameter x 8" long
port should be used with a 1.1 cu/ft enclosure.
Single Reflex Bandpass Volume:
The bandpass box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 1.08 cu/ft to
1.32 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is 1.2
cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. The 1.2 cu/ft
enclosure should have a sealed chamber volume of 0.6 cu/ft and a vented chamber
volume of 0.6 cu/ft. One 3" diameter x 7" long port should be used
with a 1.2 cu/ft enclosure.
