Listen with authority

This component set delivers a satisfying punch, thanks to enhanced woofer cones made of reinforced mica for exceptional rigidity and responsiveness. Install the separate 3/4" tweeters in a good spot up high in your vehicle for better stereo imaging. Pioneer smartly houses the soft dome tweeters in wave guide enclosures that help your highs achieve the widest dispersion possible, and the system also includes 2-way outboard crossovers — a step up from the inline high-pass filters usually found in component systems in this price range.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The multilayer mica-matrix woofer cone was developed to provide an extra light, yet rigid diaphragm to reproduce full, rich sound.

Surrounds: For durability and a smooth response, each woofer uses an elastic polymer (synthetic rubber) surround.

Size Classification Note: These speakers are marketed as both 6-1/2" and 6-3/4"; the woofers will fit standard 6-1/2 speaker openings, but do not use the industry standard bolt pattern (then again, neither do many car manufacturers at this point). Without using an adapter bracket or drilling new screw holes, the speakers fit many standard 6-3/4 applications, thus we describe them as 6-3/4. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Tweeters: The TS-A1606C system features 3/4" soft-dome tweeters with magnetic fluid and Neodymium magnets for efficient, crisp, clear highs.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted or surface mounted using the supplied housings. The surface mount housing positions the tweeters at approximately a 50° angle. Once installed the tweeters do not swivel.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Angled Surface Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height 1.625" 0.025"
Mounting Depth screw depth 0.75"
Frame Diameter N/A 1.9"
Frame Depth 1.82" N/A
Frame Width 1.61" N/A
Cutout Diameter N/A 1.57"

Crossovers: The passive high pass crossovers have a slope of 12 dB/octave and a crossover point of 6.4 kHz. (The woofer is wired to the input side of the crossover, and the filter is applied only to the tweeter.) The attached input wires are 11" long. The attached 36" tweeter output wires are terminated with quick-slides. The crossover dimensions are:

  • Width: 1.445"
  • Height: 0.93"
  • Length: 2.585"

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models 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 and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

Q
Do they come with hardware to mount the crossovers??
[ Nathan  Feb 24, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
They come with double sided tape which works great.
[ William  Feb 25, 2018 ]
Q
Can I run these speakers @ 2ohms?
[ Marc  May 10, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
These speakers work best when used with an amplifier at 4 ohms. Running at a different impedance could cause damage to the speaker or receiver/amp.
[ Kyle  May 13, 2017 ]
Q
do you need an additional amp for this?
[ Araka  Feb 11, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
You don't need a extra amp to power these. I have two sets of these. One is in a car without an amp and they sound really good, but in my truck I have a small pioneer amp, and the sound goes from really good to amazing!
[ ERIC  Feb 14, 2017 ]
A
Not required.
[ Tyrell  Feb 11, 2017 ]
A
Only if you don't have factory tweeters
[ Tyler  Feb 11, 2017 ]
Q
When wiring these to an amp do you calculate each speaker and tweeter being 4 ohms each or is it 4 ohms for one set of woofer and tweeter?
[ Isaac  Jan 04, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
One woofer and tweeter together would show 4-ohms to an amplifier channel; you wouldn't need to calculate the impedance for the woofer and tweeter separately/individually. I hope that helps!
[ Larry  Jan 13, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
How did the bass response of the speakers? I am looking for it to replacement of my stock speaker?
[ gaurav  Oct 19, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Component speakers are not known for their bass response but the Pioneers are rated to play down to 32Hz which is great for a speaker of this size. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5
[ Ryan  Oct 20, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
Will it fit normal 6.5 inch speaker bracket? Is there any options in crossover for -3db or +3dbdb settings for tweeter?
[ gaurav  Oct 15, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on fit and installation, please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and ensure fitment in your application. The included crossover network is not adjustable though. I hope that helps!

Q
I have pioneer Avh4700bs which I believe has built in amp. What would you recommend in my 2006 f-150 super crewcab if I don't want extra amps and rewiring? I just want to take out factory speakers and replace with new to improve sound and give a little bass... What do you think Crutchfield????
