Overview

Our take on the Pioneer TS-W254R

Pioneer's Champion Series subs give you impressive performance without breaking your bank account. The TS-W254R 10" subwoofer sports a rugged cone made from injection-molded polypropylene for rigidity without added heft. The sub's seamless cone design increases efficiency and reduces distortion, while its treated foam surround helps keep the cone under control so this sub sounds great in either sealed or ported enclosures.

A tough 6-layer voice coil allows the TS-W254R to handle up to 250 watts RMS. The stamped basket features a magnet cover for added protection, while extra venting helps to cool the sub's interior to protect against thermal breakdown. This sub's classic look will fit right in with any vehicle.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Features

IMPP Cone: The Pioneer TS-W254R features an IMPP (Injection Molded Polypropylene) woofer cone. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity.

Voice Coil: The woofer's 6-layer, long voice coil design allows expanded piston motion for better linearity, improved power handling, and more bass impact.

Extended Pole Yoke: The extended pole yoke expands the magnetic field, improving linearity during large woofer excursions.

Vented Pole Yoke: The vented pole yoke allows air circulation within the motor structure to ensure better heat dissipation, thus improving the power handling capacity.

Terminals: The heavy duty spring compression terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, and bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Unless you have a stereo that pushes a min of 100 watts to a single channel, then I would HIGHLY recommend you buying an amp. I used a Kicker 2-channel bridged at 4-ohm pushing 250 watts and sounds great. (the right box is key too, I built mine) Good luck. [ JC Bromac  Jul 12, 2016 ]
