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-Z65CH 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 a dual layer cone of Twaron and cellulose, making the woofer extremelty strong and stable for exceptional bass response with low coloration and distortion. An oversized magnet works tirelessly to deliver robust sound time and time again.
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. Pioneer allows you to adjust tweeter attenuation to ensure your highs are in perfect balance with the rest of your sound.
Premium external crossover networks bring out the best in each driver so that you experience a seamless performance. Equipped to handle power up to 110 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-Z65CH reviews
These speakers really deliver a nice tight low-end and with the adjustable tweeter crossover, you can really dial in the sound (finishing with help from an equalizer) Highly recommend!

Installed these in a Toyota. The adverts for these say they were designed with Toyota in mind. The included tweeter mount was perfect fit and allowed the tweeter to swivel for aim. Mid speaker with Metra adapter and wire harness fit also. Non JBL system in my car, no amp. These sound well balanced. Will install a sub-woofer and amp to fill out the bass.
Pros: Easy install and sound good on non amplified system.
Cons: Tricky adding a crossover to factory wiring.

Wonderful components. I'm running them in my 2017 F150 crew cab, powered by a kenwood 4 channel amp (bridged for 200wx2) and let me just say these components will blow you away with their clarity even at the highest volume. You'll hear different sounds the instruments make that you've never heard before. I am required to run a DSP to retain my factory head unit so I'm still running through the Hz ranges trying to get everything dialed in but with proper tuning these speakers will outperform components of much higher cost. These do not produce huge bass levels as they're a relatively small speaker, but do still hold their own when properly matched with a sub(s) and HPF and LPF are set correctly. 200hz and up they are very strong and your highs through the tweeters are very bright and clear, but not overbearing. Overall, I would buy these components over again 5 times, and no matter the budget of the build these will always be my top choice. Just don't forget to give them the juice!
Pros: Handles the desired frequencies with ease at high volume. "High definition" sound! You will not believe what you've been missing in your favorite music once you've installed these components.
Cons: None. Just don't expect subwoofer level bass with them. Use them for what they're meant for which is beautiful mids and highs!

This is amazing! I could not believe the sound of this speaker! (after 3 day break-in). Sound like an expensive paradigm studio speaker! Ts-z65ch make perfect balanced sound even Orchestra music - you will hear more instruments sound. I strongly recommend this speaker( if you love music)- You will love it! For optimum sound, it needs 110W rms power amp and premium head unit.
