Ready to get serious about sound?
When I think of classic car audio, Pioneer is one of the first names that comes to mind — that iconic logo, the solid build, the warm sound. Their Z-Series TS-Z65C 6-1/2" component speaker system upholds the legend, making it the very best way to add smooth, open, Pioneer sound quality to your car.
Audiophile-grade design and materials
Why won't the same old speakers suffice if you take sound quality seriously? High-res audio files contain significantly more data than CDs, or cassettes before them. So, Pioneer built the Z-Series to harness that wealth of information and reproduce music that's incredibly close to the original performance. To ensure a premium audio experience, Pioneer uses Twaron, a lightweight, heat-resistant fiber that's exceptionally strong and stable, to create a woofer cone that will confidently handle your music's midrange and lows without undesirable resonances.
An oversized aluminum dome tweeter reproduces the most demanding passages in your music, while maintaining its accuracy in high-level playback. With a frequency range that pushes well beyond 40,000 Hz, you'll enjoy authentic reproduction of the finest recordings in your collection, with all the overtones and harmonics that make music more real. Compact, quality external crossover networks bring out the best in each driver so that you experience a seamless performance. Equipped to handle power up to 100 watts RMS, you'll be well-served driving these speakers with an aftermarket amplifier.
With these gold-trimmed Z-Series speakers installed in your doors, you can turn up your music with confidence and savor all the nuances you've been craving in the car.

Pioneer TS-Z65C reviews
These speakers leave something to be desired if you're a bass head imo, which isn't a let down considering their size/class/price/etc. I put these in my daily to compare to some components I had from Infinity I think? Those were on 75 watts each; these are on 100 each. Not significantly louder, but significantly less distortion. Sounds quality is good, I always wonder what the multi thousand-dollar component sounds like. My installer was blown away by these and absolutely loved the mids in the car.
Pros: Great staging, lots of treble
Cons: Overpowering highs if not tuned.

Okay these speakers are excellent. I replace Infinity kappas, and these are much better. Better detail at low volume. I listen to a lot of jazz. OPEN & SMOOTH thanks to Pioneers technology and Crutchfield's ability to sell me some excellent speakers.
Pros: Open and smooth with great detail, the aluminum tweeters are excellent ,
Cons: Speaker Basket was a little bigger than kappas that I replaced. I had to modify my car door. 1969 impala fastback . Well worth it.
