Our take on the Pioneer TS-SW2002D2

Pioneer's TS Series shallow-mount subs bring great bass to vehicles where conventional subs won't fit. Their low profile allows the use of slender enclosures that'll fit behind a truck seat or any tight space while delivering the bass performance you need. The TS-SW2002D2 8" shallow-mount sub handles up to 150 watts RMS with a mounting depth of just 2-5/8".

A shallow-mount sub that rocks

Pioneer's TS Series shallow-mount subs bring great bass to vehicles where conventional subs won't fit.

Mica-injected molded resin cone

The TS-SW2002D2 features an oversized cone made of mica-injected molded resin that moves more air and delivers accurate bass. The dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 1- or 4-ohm impedance. The sub works best in a small sealed enclosure, making it ideal for those tight spaces in today's smaller vehicles. Pioneer recommends their UD-SW200D downfiring shallow subwoofer enclosure for use with this sub.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Perfect Factory Fit. Great Punch.

Francis from Newport News, VA on 2/4/2017

Perfect factory replacement for the stock rear deck sub on a 2015 Chrysler 300 S with Beats. Installed using the Metra 71-050 Speaker Wiring Adapters. I had originally ordered a Kicker sub and the holes didn't line up and i'm glad i didn't stick with it, as you can't beat the punch coming out of this Sony. Day and night difference over the "premium" paper sub that comes with the car.

Pros: Fits factory mount Great sound

Cons: None

Good Thumper

Scott from Joliet, IL on 1/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good thumper and sound quality. Excellent quality built unit. I was a little skeptical at first with the recommendation from Crutchfield to use a Pioneer since I was a goofy teenager in the 80's when Pioneer hit the stage for car equipment, but there's not enough room for all those 6x9 stories. For my 2000 Suburban, it's mounting flange doesn't fit directly inside of the stock woofer box. You have to be careful to center it for mounting into the composite. It does fit nicely under the plastic moldings.

Pros: Great quality and sound

Cons: Mounting challenge for 2000 Suburban

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound great, made well. Installed in a 2015 Civic SI in the back deck. Said it would fit but I had to modify the hole opening and Trunk lid springs for clearance. Magnet is much larger than factory and the springs caught on it. Also had to remove the child seat anchor point to get it to fit in the hole.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Such a great replacement for the cheap paper coned Infinity woofer that came in my 2012 Jeep JK. With the free adapters, thanks Crutchfield, it was a simple bolt in swap. It reproduces lower frequencies than stock and sounds Much cleaner!



Very Impressive

Brian from Davis, CA on 12/5/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I first hooked it up to factory head unit and amp I was disappointed. It was an improvement over the horrible stock sub, but I couldn't get any volume out of it, even with bass turned all the way up. I bought a dedicated amp with heavier wire to push more power to it. I talked to my neighbor who is a Lexus mechanic and he mentioned something about replacing the head unit as the OEM unit sets the crossover/sound processing and is sometimes horribly bad. I was skeptical of my his comment, since he works with Toyota products, but since I wanted a backup camera anyway, I decided to purchase a DVD head unit with subwoofer output. The head unit arrived about the same time as the monoblock amp. I installed and tested it to make sure everything worked before connecting the amplifier. Holy crap, what just happened? My system sounds totally different and the sub sounds incredible! The Rock/Fos door speakers opened up and the sub's output was strong! Why did I purchase an amplifier for the sub? My neighbor was right about the head unit! But I hooked up the amp anyway. More power is always better. Review: I am hugely impressed with this subwoofer at it's price point. It reaches lows that I honestly haven't heard and wasn't expecting from an 8" sub, shallow-mount or not. It's not audiophile quality, but has a nice, musical quality and will play louder than my hearing can tolerate. Lesson: If you replace your factory subwoofer and the performance is bad, don't

Pros: Surprisingly deep bass Surprisingly high output capability. Well made with thick, stiff cone and surround. Feed it power.

Cons: Nothing worth noting at this price point but if I were to nitpick, bass detail isn't audiophile quality. You'll need to jump into a much higher price range. I also think it's kind of ugly.

What An Investment!

ALBERTO from Toa Alta, PR on 9/27/2016

2016 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ram 1500 install took 20 minutes. Factory sub must be extracted (there's a driver retaining screw underneath) and is easily removed after taking out 2-18mm seat bolts. Factory driver rolled off steeply below 60Hz and was annoying. I read a review involving solder connections but I don't get it since there is sufficient cable to attached directly to the Pioneer binding posts. Duct taped the retaining screw hole, installed poly-fill (important) and made sure to use the gasket material provided. The sound. In this install there were no amps or additional hardware installed therefore I wasn't expecting to shower my fellow motorists with shards of window glass. However, I was pleasantly surprised to hear deeper bass notes approaching the 40Hz range and overall better bass definition. I hit this woofer with everything from jazz bass to Black Eyed Peas and was left smiling. What an investment! This low cost upgrade has added depth and definition to this Alpine factory system. If you pair it up with the 10 band EQ available with the PowerAmp MP3 player you can achieve quite a pleasant soundscape.

Pros: Great Sound, Budget Friendly

Cons: None

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Upgrade

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit perfectly in the factory subwoofer box. Did not have to drill new holes, used factory mount holes and hardware. A big upgrade to the stock sub. Line the factory box inside & out with dynamat or equivalent for maximum thump.

Pros: The included Crutchfield Master Sheet shows exactly how to remove & install the sub in the stock location. Excellent upgrade to the stock system.

Cons: Not a one

I would look elsewhere

Ruth from Columbus, OH on 6/29/2016

2016 Ford F-150 XLT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks like a well made sub. Nice compact design but really seems to run out of air very quickly. Not expecting bone rattling bass. Paired with the UD-SW200D enclosure, the speaker really seems to run out of air VERY quickly. As volumes where I would expect to at least hear the sub, it begins to sound like its running out of air. Speaker would probably do better in a larger enclosure of on a very small vehicle. I would ended up getting the JL power wedge after my experience with this. The 2 aren't even comparable. I have tried many small 8 inch speakers over the last 20 years and I would put this in the lower 10% as far as quality of output.

Pros: Seems to be well made. Looks nice.

Cons: Wasn't expecting a ton of bass but it seems to not even be able to reproduce bass as the levels of the cheap factory door speakers.

Quality Sound

This sub produces good bass and quality sound at a reasonable price. I purchased this sub to add just a little extra base with out losing my trunk space. Sub preforms well.

2014 Jeep Wrangler upgrade

Anonymous from New Jersey on 12/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great sub that rocks. I replaced the alpine factory sub with this one. It fit right into the factory box without alterations. I also used the audio control lc2 with a kicker 300 watt subwoofer amp. My jeep now has thumping bass!

Pros: Fits in factory Jeep Wrangler alpine subwoofer box with no alterations!

Cons: None

Ram 1500 upgrade

gregshin from California on 6/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have the factory alpine system but i wanted more depth to my bass...i pulled out the factory alpine sub and dropped this one. Even the grill holes line up perfectly to the factory box. I can feel more depth to bass in songs...but more importantly i can hear clarity in the bass now. This sub will not win any bass competitions but it wasn't made for that..this is a decent sub for small enclosures...make sure to use polyfill! Be prepared to splice and sodder your wires to connect this! If you have the right tools then this will take 15min!



Great low profile Woofer!

Brian from Arizona on 5/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love this speaker. I replaced a stock Harmon Kardon 8" with this in a 325ic BMW. It is mounted in the factory ski pass box, and is free air. The speaker claims 600 watts max, 150 RMS. I am running it with an ancient Jensen 100watt (50 rms) amp and it sounds amazing. Even though it is a free air system, the bass hits hard, and I cannot imagine how loud it would be with three times the power. With the roof up, the bass is almost too much and I have to turn it down. With the top down, there is certainly less bass, but you still feel it in the car and its very clean. I wish I would have done this upgrade years ago.

Pros: Great build quality and brand name. Sounds amazing even at 30% the rated watts. Low profile is a key factor for me, as I could not fit a Kicker or deeper speaker.

Cons: Even though its an 8", the lip was about .25 inch wider that my old speaker. It comes with a plastic decorative ring that add another .25 inch, so I could not use the pretty ring. Kinda pricey compare to other 8" woofers, but I feel it was worth it.

Great speaker for an OEM replacement, install has some challenges but once in sound is 5x better than OEM.

Pros: Sound clarity

Cons: Install somewhat challenging.

Solid Sub

MS from Texas on 2/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid 8" sub, great lows without being too much. Easily fits into the stock sub location in my 2013 Jeep but ended up using in the Pioneer enclosure since it sounded cleaner. Hooked up to a 350watt 2 ohm amp which is perfect. Plenty of low for a 8inch sub, complements the Polk components and coaxial previously installed.

Pros: Quality, installation

Cons: none

Sounds great.

Pioneer TS-SW2002D2

gearboxrabbit from Philadelphia, PA on 7/28/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put this sub in my 2007 Civic Si sedan. I used the free-air application and installed it in the rear deck. Boy was I disappointed. It was marginally better than the stock system with 50% of my music selections and worse the rest of the time. The rear deck rattled most of the time so I had to keep turning the sub down. I took a chance and ordered the enclosure made for this sub, the $59 Pioneer UD-SW200D. What a pleasant surprise - blown away by the performance of the sub now! I am very pleased with the overall sound. The enclosure isn't much larger than a shoe box but it puts out solid, clean bass. This setup is made for the listeners in the car - so it won't attract much attention from those outside the vehicle. I am using a Kicker 11DX600.5 amp.

Pros: Compact and space saving. Excellent bass.

Cons: None.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Shallow Mount Woofer: Pioneer's Shallow-Mount subwoofers are designed to provide installation options for a broad range of vehicles. They can be mounted behind or under the seats of many vehicles. The TS-SW2002D2 has a Mica reinforced IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) composite cone. The process of bonding reinforced pulp to the back of the cone improves its damping capability and eliminates excess vibration.

Dual 2-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features two 2-ohm voice coils that offer wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1-ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 4-ohm load.

Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Sealed Box Volume: Sealed is the preferred enclosure type for theTS-SW2002D2. The sealed box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.15 ft³ to 0.5 ft³; with 0.5 ft³ being the ideal size.

Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.25ft³ to 0.5 ft³; within this range the ideal size is 0.5 ft³ with a single 3" diameter x 10" long port.

Bandpass Box Volume: The bandpass box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.25 ft³ per chamber to 0.4 ft³ per chamber; within this range the ideal size is 0.4 ft³ per chamber. One 3" diameter x 6.5" long port should be used in an enclosure with 0.4 ft³ chambers.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The woofer is also optimized for infinite-baffle operation (free-air) so that it can be installed in a variety of locations, including factory woofer applications, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.

While the stock woofer is a standard 8" size, the available mounting space in the stock location (mounting depth, magnet diameter) is too restrictive for an aftermarket model to fit. This Pioneer is shallow enough but the magnet diameter is too wide for it to seat properly into the stock mount. The wheel well gets in the way. While I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, I hope the information helps. My Bio: [ Ryan  Oct 19, 2016 ]  Staff

I have mine running on an old Jensen amp with 50 watts RMS to each channel to it in a factory open air enclosure between the rear seat and the trunk in a 94 BWW 325 convertible. It hits hard and sounds terrific, but wont vibrate the car or be obnoxious loud at the stop light. Super deep base it does need a little more power, but is very clean on rock and alternative. Honestly, I love how it sounds, but prob will move up to 100 watts rms to each or bridge it and take it down to 1 ohm. My current amp just wont go that low. My vote for you is run it off the jl amp. Its a great speaker and I think the power will be good for it. [ Brian  Oct 04, 2016 ]
I personally wouldn't recommend powering them off the factory system. I don't think you will be satisfied with their output. Do it right the first time and run them off your amp. You will be glad you did [ Brent  Oct 04, 2016 ]
The factory system will work . But better off with the amp power [ wayne  Oct 04, 2016 ]
Definitely use the amp. I initially ran mine off my factory system to replace the factory infinity sub. It worked, but it was underpowered. [ William  Oct 04, 2016 ]
"Will this fit in a 2012 honda civic ex coupe rear center deck? If not what realistically will?" Yes, per the research we have on file for the '12 Civic EX Coupe, the Pioneer TS-SW2002D2 will fit. There are modifications that would need to be made to the stock cutout in order for this (or any other aftermarket model) sub to fit correctly though.
