6-1/2"/6-3/4" 4-way Speaker
Our take on the Pioneer TS-A1680R by Crutchfield's Todd Cabell
No one but Pioneer would try this four drivers on a 6-1/2" speaker! That's right, the TS-A1680R offers you 4-way reproduction for total coverage of the frequency spectrum. The Aramid fiber reinforced IMPP woofer cone handles lots of power, pumping out some sizable bass.
A PET film dome tweeter and pearl polycarbon supertweeter provide comprehensive high-frequency response, while a pearl polycarbon midrange adds texture and warmth to vocals. The butyl rubber surround ensures long-term speaker life. The TS-A1680R also has mounting tabs for oversized 6-3/4" applications.

Woofers: Each speaker features an interlaced Aramid fiber-reinforced IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) cone woofer. With long Aramid fibers interlacing together inside, this IMPP cone design provides the strength and rigidity powerful bass sound requires. The high-density, compressed internal architecture is resilient, stacks up against high power and transfers sound very quickly. The result is full-bodied, rich sound.
Midranges: Each speaker uses a 1-5/8" Foamed Pearl PolyCarbon (PPC) balanced dome midrange with magnetic fluid and a strontium magnet. PPC is a lightweight material that delivers high sensitivity, open sound character and smooth extended frequency response. Its high inner loss reduces distortion. It's blended with special carbon fiber for UV resistance and protection against the harsh environment of a car.
Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 5/8" PET silver film dome tweeter and a 3/8" PET silver film supertweeter for crisp, clear highs.
Surrounds: For durability and a smoother response, this speaker uses a butyl rubber surround.
Mounting: The speakers can be mounted in a 6-1/2" opening, or, using the four mounting tabs, the speakers can be mounted in a 6-3/4" opening.
