Our take on the Pioneer Champion Series PRO TS-W3003D4

by Dave Delamere
Pioneer

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.

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..

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4Ω voice coils. The two sets of spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, a single banana plug, or bare wire up to 10 gauge. The two voice coils can be wired in series to present an 8Ω load or in parallel to present a 2Ω load.

Power Handling: The woofer has two 4Ω voice coils; each coil can handle up to 300 watts RMS (600 watts total).

Sealed Box Volume: The recommended sealed box volume range is from 0.85 cubic feet to 1.75 cubic feet, with 1.25 cubic feet being the ideal size.

Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume range is from 1.25 cubic feet to 2.0 cubic feet. The ideal size is 1.5 cubic feet, using a single 3" diameter port that is 6" long.

What's the best amplifier to use for this sub without over or under-powering it? I want the best amp possible. [ Trevin  Aug 11, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • 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 Staff  Aug 11, 2014 ]
I'm a little concerned about the freq response only being 80hz on the high side. This sub will be replacing a Memphis mclass 12. It was running on 300 watts at 4ohms, this sub will be at 540 watts at 2 ohms, using an alpine mvr500, your thoughts? [ Jesse  Jun 02, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • 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 Staff  Jun 03, 2014 ]
I want to get this sub i have a 760 watt 2 channel pioneer amp i want to know how to wire the sub and bridge it to where it wont burn the sub? [ javier  May 13, 2014 ]

  • I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help you determine the best way to wire this sub with your amplifier. [ Jeff Staff  May 15, 2014 ]
I have a custom Qlogic enclosure where the mounting depth is dependent on the magnet diameter? What is the diameter of the magnet on this speaker? Thank you [ Frank Sandage  May 06, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • We show the magnet diameter as 6.65". [ Jeff Staff  May 07, 2014 ]
the optimum size box for this sub is 1.25cu, the box I'm thinking about is for 2 subs at a total of 2.2cu. that means that the box will be .3 off the optimum size. does anybody how this will affect the sound? [ efren  Mar 08, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • 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 Staff  Mar 11, 2014 ]
