About the Pioneer TS-D12D4
Built tough for solid bass
Built tough for solid bass
Great bass is all about power, and Pioneer created their D-Series subs with that thought in mind. They built the TS-D12D4 12" subwoofer to handle up to 600 watts RMS, while it dishes out impressive low-frequency punch. This sub features an injection-molded polypropylene cone that's impregnated with Aramid fibers for exceptional precision and strength. A butyl rubber surround supports the woofer during cone excursion so you'll get accurate, hard-hitting bass notes even when the music's turned up loud. The sub's dual 4-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system.
Add some boom to your daily drive
If your vehicle's audio system is sounding a little thin, this potent Pioneer sub can remedy that situation, bringing out all the punch and power in your music by filling in the lowest frequencies of the sound spectrum. Throw one or two of these subs in your daily ride, power them up with a nice amp, and you'll understand what the fuss is all about — whatever you listen to, great bass will make it sound much, much better.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 450 and 900 watts RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Pioneer TS-D12D4 reviews
So I'm putting a system in my girlfriends car, a single 12. I have a previous generation Pioneer TSW3003 in my truck that will be going in her car, powered by a JBL amp I also purchased. I was a bit skeptical of this D series sub because the design is a bit different than the previous model, but I went for it anyway. Btw the 3003 replaced an old 1000 watt rms Premier, so that sub had a lot to live up to, which it has! Anyway, I just hooked this D series sub up, and WOW! It gets busy, and is musical! It's loud, but the sound quality is very good. My box is 1 cubic foot, and I'm using an older 850 rms Kenwood mono amp to power it. I have the amps output set to 34.64 vac (600 watts rms) right now, and I dare say it's louder and for sure more accurate than the 3003. I may try to run the full 850 rms to this sub when it breaks in, but I don't think it's necessary at all, I'm completely happy as is. Good sub for rap, great for rock! Now I have to get the old sub in a ported box for the girlfriends car. I highly recommended Pioneer subwoofers, and Crutchfield! Crutchfield, thank you for the fast delivery and all the awesome customer support over the years.
Pros: Loud, tight response. Very musical. Responds to power well. Well made and looks sharp.

Woofer Cone: Pioneer uses aramid fiber interlaced injection molded polypropylene (IMPP) for the cone, making it more rigid than polypropylene alone.
Dual 4Ω Voice Coils: This woofer features two 4Ω voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load; when wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω load.
Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.
Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.8 ft³ to 1.2 ft³; within this range the ideal size is 1.0 ft³.
Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.8ft³ to 1.2 ft³; within this range the ideal size is 1.0 ft³ with a single 3" diameter x 6" long port.
Double-stacked Magnet: The woofer uses double-stacked magnets to create a powerful magnetic force. This increases the control exerted over the voice coil.
Free-Air: The woofer can also be mounted in free air to a baffle board (infinite baffle, no enclosure). When mounted in free air, the power handling is reduced by 75% (to 150 watts).
Measurements: When mounting the woofer without the trim ring, the dimensions change as follows:
- Mounting Height: 0.564"
- Flange Height: 0.165"
- Frame Diameter: 12.26"
