Our take on the Pioneer Stage 4 TS-C172PRS by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Pioneer Stage 4 PRS Component Speaker System
Pioneer PRS Series component speaker systems deliver superb sound with a wide open soundstage, so you'll hear your music faithfully reproduced and in perfect balance throughout your car's interior. Pioneer designed these component speakers as part of their Stage 4 System, along with the DEX-P99RS receiver, PRS Series amplifiers, TS-S062PRS midrange speakers, and the TS-W252PRS subwoofer, to deliver uncompromised sound quality in your vehicle.
Three-layer cones for tough bass
The TS-C172PRS component system features a 6-3/4" woofer with an exceptionally rigid cone made from polypropylene, Aramid fibers, and glass fibers. The woofer's lightweight micro-fiber surround Pioneer calls it "artificial suede" holds its shape even when the speaker's driven hard, so you'll enjoy strong, accurate performance. An aluminum center plug improves sound dispersion and dissipates heat for a longer life.
Wide high-frequency performance
Each 1-1/8" polyester soft dome tweeter features a sealed chamber that extends its frequency response much lower than the typical tweeter, for a better transition from the lows to the highs. The lower crossover point also helps to open up the sound as more sonic details are broadcast from the tweeter.
The TS-C172PRS system includes outboard 2-way crossovers built with audiophile-grade components to ensure the highest fidelity. You can choose between two tweeter levels to adjust for the most natural sound in your vehicle. Pioneer put decades of car audio experience to work in creating these components, so power them up with a suitable Pioneer PRS amp and enjoy stunning sound quality as you drive.

IMX Woofer: Pioneer's proprietary 3-Layer IMX (Injection Molded Matrix) cones are rigid yet lightweight; they significantly reduce mid-to-low range distortion and reproduce a natural sound stage. The woofers' set screw terminals accept bare wire up to 12 gauge.
Mounting: Out of the box the TS-C172PRS's woofers are designed to mount in a standard 4-hole 6-3/4" opening. The included adapter brackets allow the woofers to mount in standard 3-hole 6-1/2" and Ford style 4-hole 6-1/2" applications. When top mounting the woofer, the bracket is attached to the bottom of the flange; to bottom mount the woofer, attach the bracket to the top of the flange.
Soft-Dome Tweeter: The TS-C172PRS component set includes two 1-1/8" soft-dome tweeters with dual neodymium magnets (total weight 0.75 ounces). Pioneer extends tweeter performance to a lower frequency than is typical, creating fuller midrange fidelity and clear, accurate vocals.
Mounting: The tweeters can be flush-mounted using the supplied metal clamps. The supplied plastic mounting cups allow you to surface mount the tweeters in an aftermarket location or mount the tweeters in a factory tweeter location behind a factory installed grille. The surface mounting cups let you position the tweeters at one of two angles, approximately 45° or 15°. Once installed, the tweeters do not swivel.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
|Factory Mount||Angled Surface Mount||Flush Mount|
1.627" (15° angle)
1.872" (45° angle)
Passive Crossover Network: The TS-C172PRS features an audiophile-grade outboard passive crossover module for each woofer/tweeter combination. The crossover modules are 2-way with a crossover point of 1,900 Hz and 12dB/octave slope.
Crossover Connections: The gold-plated set screw input and output terminals will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge. Note: No speaker wire or quick slides are provided with the speakers.
Tweeter Level Control: The crossover provides three tweeter level output options; -3 dB, 0 dB (flat), and +3 dB.
Mounting: There are four supplied self-tapping screws for mounting the crossovers in your vehicle.
- Width: 5.25"
- Height: 3.625"
- Depth: 3.5" (plus wire thickness)
