Loud and proud

Pioneer's Champion Series PRO TS-W3003D4 delivers the chest-pounding bass you expect from a 12” subwoofer. Its rugged construction enables it to handle up to 600 watts RMS without a problem, for performance you can count on. This sub offers the versatility of dual 4-ohm voice coils (DVC) and the ability to work in a sealed or ported enclosure, so it'll fit right in your system, no matter what type of bass you like.

Keep it in line

Pioneer uses a larger magnet combined with a dual spider design to promote the accurate linear motion a subwoofer needs, just like a piston in an engine. The heavy-duty motor structure guarantees accurate response, so you'll enjoy greater clarity in your bass. The sub's reinforced basket houses a tough polypropylene cone with a dual-layer elastic polymer surround, giving you a durable sub that can handle just about anything you throw at it..

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 450 and 900 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

No joke they are every bit the reviews were raving about.

Pros: They have incredible range, crystal clear sound quality and hit like a $500 sub. They handle large amounts of power without flinching.

Cons: Cost seemed high compared to competitors but they are not "licensed dealers" like Crutchfield is. If there is era problem with them at least having s licensed seller to back up the product will be helpful.

I got these a week ago, they came very fast and well packaged. I already had a box ready for dual 12". They were easy to hook up and man did they hit hard!!.

Pros: The build is close to perfect.

Cons: No bad things!!

We've verified that these enclosures are a good match for this subwoofer.
It's critical to have good wire, and none is included with the sub.
Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
These can be useful if you are building a custom box.

If you mean two 2-ohm speakers then they have to be wired in parallel, i.e., wire the first red terminal to the second red terminal, and the first black to the second back. That will drop the total ohm load to one ohm. Few amps will drive a continuous 1-ohm load so beware you aren't overloading it. [ P T  Sep 21, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  Aug 11, 2014 ]  Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The MRV-M500 will definitely work with the Pioneer sub. You are correct that it will not play a very wide range of bass frequencies and if you are wanting to have the sub alone provide you with the bass notes you should look for something with a wider range. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jun 03, 2014 ]  Staff

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: For a sealed box you can be between 0.8 to 1.75, so no issue with your box size at all. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Mar 11, 2014 ]  Staff
I'm a little concerned that it freq response on the high end is only 80hz, any thoughts? I'll be using to replace a Memphis mclass 12. It was running at 300 watts at 4 ohms, the pioneer will be at 540 watts at 2 ohms, using an alpine MVR500, thanks ! [ Jesse  Jun 02, 2014 ]
