Step up to Pioneer components

It's the right time to step up to new speakers — these D Series car speakers deliver superior Pioneer quality at a competitive price. Designed to provide a smooth and open sound that's miles above your factory speakers, the TS-D65C 6-1/2" component speaker system gives you low distortion and unfailing performance, even under the harsh conditions of living in your car doors.

Sweet highs and hearty lows

Pioneer infuses the D Series polypropylene woofer cone with strong aramid fibers, making it both durable and incredibly responsive for the best bass experience possible. A coated textile dome tweeter ensures the excellent high-frequency performance you've been craving, while an inline crossover means you won't have any extra gear to stash in your doors or dash. Prepare for crisp, musical detail and a new, impactful soundstage across your dash that will take enjoyment of your music to the next level — especially if you power these speakers with an aftermarket amplifier.

Fine tuning

Tweeter placement is crucial for vivid, precise playback — that's why Pioneer includes a unique swivel mount with this component system that lets you precisely aim your music's high frequencies. Flush-, surface-, and bracket-mounting hardware gives you more options for installing your tweeters.

Brought my truck to life. Sounds great paired with a Pioneer NEX receiver. Now I just need an amp to make them "magical". As expected, I had to modify the tweeters to fit in the A pillars... hot glue worked excellent.

Installed on extended cab truck with kicker key amp and 8" JL microsub. This system rocks! Clean, dynamic, accurate, detailed. Obviously they don't go too low (x over @120hz), but they just sound great- better than I expected. They key amp really helps too- brings out the potential of these speakers.

Pros: Accurate and clean. Great sound!

Cons: Surprisingly cheap/flimsy terminal posts- be careful

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla S and yes the speakers do sound amazing, But I was disappointed and annoyed with the fact of how the tweeters went in, I could not use the stock mount or the one that came with them and I had to cut the plug off the old tweeters and splice them with the wires given, and with the door speakers, the bracket given to fit in place of the old one does not fit the speaker properly, it was like a balancing act trying to get it to stay still as I put the screws in to attempt to hold the speaker firmly,I would still recommend these speakers just be aware you may have some modifications you have to do.

Pros: Sounds amazing with after market head unit

Cons: Tweeters had to be modified to fit Door speaker bracket would not accept the actual speaker

Very Clear with no distortion

Crutchfield customer from Grand Junction, MI on 4/4/2019

2003 Saturn VUE

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

I purchased these speakers to replace the OEM front door speakers in my 2003 Saturn Vue. The adapter rings that Crutchfield included made the installation fairly easy although for my installation I had to trim the adapter a bit to get everything to fit properly. I have appreciated Pioneer automobile speakers for years because I have come to anticipate great performance from them. These speakers are no exception. They are very clear. They have well-balanced highs and lows. They are free from any distortion... although I do not listen to loud pounding music. The speakers produce impressive bass within their physical range. In order to hear the lowest tones in an orchestra for example, a larger 10 or 12 inch bass speaker is still helpful. But I highly recommend these speakers. These speakers are yet another excellent product of Pioneer.

Pros: Clear, well-balanced sound between high's and low's, no distortion. Installation of speakers with the installation adapter from Crutchfield was quick and easy. Installation time was probably not more than an hour and a half including removing and reinstalling the door panels. Vehicle retains its OEM stock look, but the sound significantly exceeds the quality of the OEM equipment.

Cons: I cannot think of any Cons to this product.

Bang for the buck. Or should I say Boom...

Clark from Santa Cruz, CA on 3/27/2019

2017 Ford Mustang

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

I haven't bought Pioneer speakers in probably decades. Pioneer was my go to back when I was a young'en back in the 80's and I cut holes in door cards and rear decks, but not for my component systems. I must admit, 1) I bought these for my wife's car, 2) I was looking for the most affordable speakers with the best low end stats for her application. I wasn't sure how I was going to mount the tweeters, because she has the most basic system without tweeters, but I figured I could work it out. The Crutchfield installation guide for the Honda Civic was huge, due to the many models and various stereo choices, but when I paired it down, the front speaker installation was super easy (the rear speakers is another story entirely, without the instructions just forget it), plus the free accessories are a huge plus. Installation was a breeze, as was finding a home for the tweeters (see pic). All this was kind of expected from a Crutchfield purchase, what I did expect was the sound upgrade from these moderately priced speaker, with no external crossover, by the way. Mind you, this is not sub-quality bass, but the bass is noticeable and more than enough to keep my from adding a sub. The addition of tweeters at ear level, just opens up the highs. Of course if you saw the literal quarter sized magnets on the OEM speakers, you'd understand why she asked for an upgrade. Well, this is way better than expected for sure.

Pros: Affordable, easy install, great sound, no external crossover

Cons:

Awesome after fixing my mistake...

Jeff from Greensboro, NC on 11/13/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed these a few weeks ago with hopes of big improvements over factory speakers. Mine has the 9 speaker shaker system. I was very disappointed in the range of sound, amount of bass and loudness. Because I was looking for more bass than factory I also had installed speaker baffles. Big mistake. Thought I was going to have to buy an amp but decided to try removing baffles first. What an amazing change. They are now clear with lower freq. response, much more volume and now has that seat shaking bass i was looking for. And this is with the factory amp! Also switched out the mids with a pair of 2-ways. Amazing the change it has made. Want another pair for the rear deck now. Highly recommend for 2015-17 Mustang. Also be sure to install some 1/2" door striping insulation around the front frame so you don't have a gap from speaker to door panel...

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

If I felt like taking them out of my door, I would return them. My stock speakers sounded better to me. These sound pretty washed out and high. It's hard to explain it. Perhaps I'll get a decent amp and see if that makes any difference, because the one I bought to go along with these (soundstream stealth) was a complete dud. For now I'm stuck with them, and they are okay for what they are.

Sounds great, the highs, mids and the bass are amazing. The stock speakers in 2007 civic si sound good when I first got the car. The only reason why I replaced all of my speakers is because my back left speaker blow out. After listening to these new speakers, I should have bought new speakers a long time ago. Installing new speaker was easy.

Massive improvement over Honda factory speakers

Peter from Washington, DC on 7/20/2018

2014 Honda CRV

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

Added this to the front door panels of my 2014 Honda CR-V. A massive improvement over the factory speakers. Much clearer separation of notes at both the high and low ends. A very good investment in my future driving pleasure. Well-recommended!!

Pros: Great sound quality. Solid Pioneer products. The complimentary speaker mount and Honda-compatible wiring hook-up were a perfect fit for the CR-V system. Installation was relatively easy if you have the tools and interest/aptitude.

Cons: The installation instructions covered the basics, but I took wrong turns on a couple of the installation steps and had to back track. Cutting the holes for the tweeter in the plastic door panel could be a challenge for some, but it worked OK for me (mark circle with pencil using the tweeter mount as a template; drill small holes around the circle perimeter; cut between the holes with a Stanley knife; file the resulting hole to a neat circle).

Excellent level frequency response

Devin from Humble, TX on 7/9/2018

2016 Ford Mustang

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

Upgrade from 2016 Ford Mustang base stereo speakers. Huge improvement! I used to have to turn the treble and mid almost all the way down and the bass all the way up just so the stock speakers wouldn't sound so shrill. These speakers sound great with no equalization, but even better with the bass turned up a bit. I'm powering them currently with the stock head unit and I plan on additional BG an amp, but it still sounds great with these in the front and rear.

Pros: Level frequency response Excellent bass

Cons: Wish there was a matching coaxial pair with this frequency capabilities

speakers and tweeters fit, sound great, only replaced front speakers and still have the stock back speakers, have to turn the fade way to the back to get a good balance, will differently be getting another pair for the rear

Pros: nice base, nice highs, fits in factory location for speaker and tweeter, easy install once i figured out how to install the first door

Cons: as for the speakers, none so far, for crutchfields instructions on installation for my cars make year and model, their instructions showed for the woofer i just had to unscrew the factory woofers, well my woofers were built into the pod so i tear the old woofer apart, cut the plastics holding it in, make my own holes and get speaker tape and hope that the woofer would fit in the pod, witch it luckily did, only reason why i didnt give it 5 starts

Vast improvement

Crutchfield customer from Lawrence, KS on 4/22/2018

2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class

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

2014 GLK350 Great replacement for stock front speakers. The stock speakers could pump out a lot of bass but were severely lacking in the midrange. These fixed that problem. Clear sound, good from bass to treble. Very impressed and a huge improvement. For anyone out there with a merc, the component tweeters will fit in the spot where the stock are without trouble. If you take them out of all the housing they come packaged in, they will be slightly smaller than the stock tweeters. I used one wrap of foam tape (the type you'd use for a house door/window seal) and they fit perfect.

Pros: Great sound Nice bass Clear midrange and highs

Cons: The only criticism I have is the tabs on the speakers for connecting the wires are a little flimsy.

Excellent clarity and lifelike sound!!!!

Mike from Charlotteville, VA on 3/15/2018

2018 Toyota RAV4

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

I still have the factory head unit, but awesome sound and fit perfectly into my 2017 RAV4. The sound was extremely immersive, completely enveloping you in a sound field thanks to "Open & Smooth" concept. Nuances like fret noise, bass slap or snare and kickdrum attack are extremely lifelike and transparent. These have taunt & tight bass response and crisp highs. I can feel that these speakers has the same quality as Focal speakers, but for 1/4 of the price! I'm highly impressed. I installed tweeter to a "factory location". The tweeters are extremely compact and feature a unique swivel mechanism that allows precise aiming of high frequencies. This kit includes a tri-position mounting kit provides the flexibility to mount the tweeter using a variety of methods; flush mount, surface mount or bracket mount, especially important for concealing the tweeter behind an original equipment tweeter grille in the vehicle dash or door. The tabs have multiple holes/slots to match your factory dash speaker mounting hole spacing when you install these tweeters in their place. Pioneer has packed this kit with installation hardware and options and custom speaker mounts! 5 stars to the quality, price and options.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: Each woofer uses an aramid fiber interlaced injection-molded polypropylene (IMPP) cone. This process of cone molding assures a uniform thickness and the addition of aramid fibers adds rigidity to the cones.

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 as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted or mounted behind a factory grille using the included housings. Once installed in either housing the tweeters will pivot, so they can be angled to optimize imaging.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Factory Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height 0" 0.543"
Mounting Depth 1.134" 0.591"
Frame Diameter 2.012" 2.322"
Cutout Diameter N/A 2.010"

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 3 kHz. The two lengths of speaker wire each connect to both a woofer and tweeter. Quick slides connect to the woofer, a 40" output leg with integrated crossover (approximately 1/2" diameter x 3/4" long) connects to the terminals attached to the tweeter, and an 11" input leg connects to the source.

Q
Is there a crossover for the tweeters too?
[ Andrew  May 23, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
The tweeters and the mid bass both do have passive fixed crossovers built- in individually. If you look at the back of them you noticed. I have these installed in my 2011 Nissan Pathfinder and the sound fantastic. These are pushed by JVC KSAX3102 and JVC KSAX3002 (old school) amps and JBL MS-8 sound processor.

It is built into the wiring harness that goes from the midrange sub to the tweeter
[ Ron  May 23, 2019 ]
Q
Can these be bi-amped?
[ KELLEY  May 30, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
Really don't need external amp, but it will bring out the dynamics if you do. Keep in mind that these have fixed individual passive crossovers built in them which means the CAN NOT BE BI-AMPED. Both tweeters and the mid-bass have to be wired in parallel in order to work. My set up consist of (2) individual amps. One is for the two rear speakers and other is located in the front. Both amps is controlled by JBL MS-8 sound processor and sub amp is JBL msa5001 driving JB (1) 8" JL audio w3v2 woofer.

Q
Do these require an amplifier or will they work with the OEM radio? FYI: I have a 2006 silverado crew cab with speaker and separate tweeter in front doors and speaker in rear doors (total of 4 speakers and 2 tweeters). Also have some device (amp?) hidden behind the glove box. I was told it was a factory amp but not sure and don't know the specs.
[ Charles  Dec 19, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
These speakers are not very efficient (84dB), so, they are not a great match for the minimal factory wattage in any vehicle. They are best when used with an aftermarket amplifier.

This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you all the details for your specific installation.
