Overview

Our take on the Pioneer TS-A6965R

Are your car's factory speakers sounding less than fresh? Pioneer built their A-Series speakers to be high-performance replacements for your old speakers, designed from the ground up to bring back the life that your music's been missing. You'll be able to enjoy the clear vocals, chunky guitar riffs, powerful drums, and distinct bass lines that have always been a part of your favorite tunes, but have remained hidden behind sub-par speakers.

Built to make your music rock

Pioneer equipped the TS-A6965R 6"x9" speakers with multilayer mica-matrix woofers that stay rigid when the volume's turned up, keeping distortion to a minimum so your bass sounds clean. Each woofer gets paired up with a midrange speaker and tweeter to add warmth and clarity to your driving soundtrack. These speakers will sound great running off your factory stereo, but they'll really shine when driven by an aftermarket receiver or an external amp. Don't drive another day listening to tired-sounding tunes, when you can enjoy Pioneer sound quality with these speakers in your vehicle. 

Awesome!!

Features

Woofers: The multi layer mica matrix cone was developed to provide an extra light, yet rigid diaphragm to reproduce full, rich sound.

Surrounds: For durability and a smooth response, each woofer uses a rubber coated cloth surround.

Midranges: Each speaker has a 2-1/4" paper cone midrange with a 1.7 ounce Strontium magnet.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 3/8" dome tweeter made from PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) film for crisp, clear highs.

YES GREAT SOUND BUT IF YOU RUN THEM OFF AN AMP THEY SOUND WAY BETTER.. [ JUAN  Dec 10, 2015 ]
I don't have that deck but I do like the speakers. I installed the Pioneer DEH-X6600BT. For the price they have pretty good sound. Only issue I had was a piece of the cone came loose and made a rattle noise for a bit. I just removed it when it came loose. No big deal [ BROOKS  Dec 10, 2015 ]
Yes be careful when mounting speaker though the window will possibly hit it and it will break the mechanism device [ JEREMY M  Feb 19, 2015 ]
First, you need to find out the size of the OEM speaker of your car that you are replacing. If I'm not mistaken, this pioneer speaker size is 6"x9" and it is a 3 way. And if you are using just the head unit only, it will not have enough power (rms watts) to drive it. You will need another amplifier to drive this set of speaker. Even though it says 5-60 watts rms, I will recommend at least 40 watts rms minimum and maximum of 75 watts rms per channel amplifier to drive per speaker. [ ALDEN P  Feb 18, 2015 ]
The grill covers for my 2000 Chrysler convertible fit over these speakers perfect. [ JOHN G  Feb 18, 2015 ]
I install these in a cobalt and kept the stock grilles. [ EDWARD M  Feb 18, 2015 ]

These speakers are rated at 60 Watts RMS. This is the maximum wattage you will want running to the speakers. For help in selecting the best speakers or amps for your vehicle, please contact an Advisor by phone or chat. [ Jeff  Nov 19, 2013 ]  Staff
