Optimized materials and design

A woofer cone made of carbon- and mica-reinforced polypropylene means awesome rigidity, low-frequency responsiveness, and weather-resistance. Pioneer also gives you versatile woofer brackets for use across all kinds of makes and models. Use the included tweeter mounts to install the separate 3/4" tweeters in a good spot up high in your vehicle for better stereo imaging. Inline crossovers eliminate the need to find a spot for crossover modules.

Great sound for the price

Crutchfield customer from Carlsbad, CA on 8/8/2019

2014 Ford Fiesta

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A small price to pay for a substantial upgrade in the sound quality over the factory speakers. Reasonably easy to install but not a direct drop in - if your happy to do a little wiring and trimming of parts then maybe an hours work

Pros: Sound great

Cons: Search Youtube for better instructions on making the swap

Replaced the stock rear speakers for my 2018 Civic SI. If you plan on doing this on your own for this car, please research a lot before attempting it yourself. As for the speakers, they're incredible. They added bass to my overall sound and cleaned up the sound of the mids and highs.

Pros: Bass Mids Highs

Nice bass and no rattle.

Crutchfield customer from Lilburn, GA on 5/4/2019

2007 Honda Ridgeline

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to add bass to my car sound system. Since I changed out my OEM stereo in my Honda Ridgeline to a Sony carplay stereo, I lost my subwoofer and so I needed more bottom. I looked at many speakers and talked to Crutchfield advisors to see which speakers would add base in the front door. After a lot of research, I decided to go with these Pioneer speakers. They do have alot of bass and I have enjoyed listening to them. I have not installed the tweeters as of yet since the installation is a lot more involved and the OEM tweeters are doing fine so far.

Pros: Good lows, easy install for door speakers, nice price.

Cons: none

Pioneer TS-A652C Speakers / Crutchfield Rocks

Crutchfield customer from Cincinnati, OH on 4/14/2019

2014 Honda CRV

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought two sets of these for my 2014 Honda CRV EX-L after blowing a speaker in the front. The original speakers were Pioneer from the factory as well. These speakers work perfectly. I was able to pop off my door panels using information from your site and plug them right in without any issues. I have an after market dual bin Kenwood DDX9705S as well which after adjusting gain wise equalizer wise etc. can be bumped up to about 22 volume wise before hearing any distortion. My car also has a built in factory amp which gives a little more juice to these speakers. I also purchased a KICKER - Hideaway 8" Subwoofer with Enclosure and Integrated 150W Amplifier for under my passenger seat. I was able to tuck it right behind the factory sub which is only a 5 3/4" sub and had no bass what so ever. I'm very satisfied with my system as a whole and these speakers are perfect performance wise for my car. Thank you Crutchfield for your awesome insight on everything car stereo related. Your site is a beacon to the way customer service should be done .

Pros: Everything fit perfect in my car no issues what so ever. Quality speakers.

Cons: None

Big upgrade over stock speakers

Steven from Calera, AL on 1/7/2019

2014 Fiat 500L

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased these to replace a blown factory set in my Fiat 500L. It's a night and day difference in sound quality. I can hear cymbals now! That may not sound like a big deal, but you probably haven't heard the stock 500L system. Much more clarity than the originals. Instead of basically just having muddy mids, I actually have a full range of sound for once. It inspired me to replace the rear speakers, as well. I went with the TS-D65F coaxial speakers for that. Not gonna lie, they sound significantly better than the TS-A652C. Now I wish I'd gone with a D-series component system in the front as well. But both are a clear improvement over the stock system, so I'm not going to worry too much about it. One thing that may be of concern is that the frequency range is great and the sound quality at the low end is excellent, but there's not much of it. They sound perfect sitting in the garage, but the lows get lost to road noise fast on the highway. I'm adding a small underseat sub to compensate. I'm not saying it's terrible, mind you. Still much better than the stock system. It's just that the stock speakers were all lows and no highs, so it's a big transition. And there's literally no insulation or sound deadening in the door of the 500L, so it's more the car's fault than the speakers. Also, the brackets that Crutchfield included were nowhere near a fit for either the speakers or the door. But the ones that Pioneer provided in the box were a perfect f

Pros: -Excellent sound quality, especially on the high end. -Easy installation with universal bracket included in the box. -Very inexpensive, considering the SQ.

Cons: -If I'm being picky, the posts on the speakers feel extremely weak. Be careful wiring them up.

Product Research

Features

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Pioneer, call this size woofer a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Mounting Brackets: Pioneer includes a pair of mounting brackets to install the woofers in vehicle-specific applications. Again, enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

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

Tweeter Mounting: The system includes flush mount rings and angled surface mount housings for the tweeters. The surface mount housing positions the tweeters at approximately a 45° angle. Bendable brackets are also included for mounting the tweeters in factory locations. Once installed the tweeters do not swivel.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Angled Surface Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height 1.47" 0.233"
Mounting Depth screw depth 0.552"
Frame Diameter N/A 1.955"
Frame Depth 1.785" N/A
Frame Width 1.5" N/A
Cutout Diameter N/A 1.641"

Crossovers: The high pass crossovers are integrated into the included speaker wire and the low pass crossovers are integrated into the woofer baskets. Both are 6 dB/octave and the crossover point is 2.5 kHz. Each length of speaker wire connects to both a woofer and tweeter. Quick slides connect to the woofer, a 40" output leg with integrated crossover (approximately 1/2" diameter x 1-3/4" long) connects to the terminals attached to the tweeter, and an 11" input leg connects to the source.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I've been using Pioneer products since the 90's and the brand has never let me down! [ Peter  Aug 30, 2019 ]

I heard that it had good mid bass compared to other 6.5" component speakers, and I've had good experiences with pioneer in the past. [ Chris  Jul 09, 2019 ]

4 questions already asked

Q
Do you have to use the tweeter's to get any mids or highs out of these speakers?
[ John  Aug 10, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
I would say yes. Especially the highs. This is a great component speaker system. The highs out of the tweets are extremely crisp!
[ SCOT  Aug 25, 2019 ]
A
You can get some range out of the woofer alone but you have to remember the woofers frequency range is in the middle between 100hz to 5000hz. Anyrhing above or below will not be clear or quality sound. The 6db crossover further adds complication to get the right sound from just a woofer alone. If used in a rear door it may be ok for filling the rear space of the vehicle. This can also be problematic as your passengers listening back there will be missing fidelity. Short answer is that you can use them alone. But there is more to the question as to why you would need to.
[ Brandon  Aug 19, 2019 ]
A
If you don't want to install the tweeters then get the model with them built on
[ roc22  Aug 18, 2019 ]
Q
There is one wide terminal and one thin terminal on the speakers. Which one is positive and which is negative?
[ Donald  Aug 10, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Look on the speaker where the terminals come off the back. There should be + and - markings on the speaker body, right next to the terminal.
[ Brad  Aug 18, 2019 ]
Q
Does it come with the crossovers?
[ KAUAIxKILLAH  Jun 14, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
Yes they are tiny inline ones non adjustable
[ michael  Jun 14, 2019 ]
A
if it is integrated in the wire
[ Santos  Jun 14, 2019 ]
Q
where would you install the tweeters on a 2006 Tacoma?
[ ptorro  Apr 04, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The factory location is in the top of the door according to our research file. That would be the best place but those Pioneer tweeters also come with some angled tweeter mounting housings if you prefer to surface mount.
