6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
For 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" openings
Our take on the Pioneer TS-D161R by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Pioneer's TS-D161R 6-1/2" speakers have the looks to make a statement in your car, and the technology to prove that beauty isn't just skin deep.
The sound quality story begins with the unique dual-cone woofer it's a high-tech sandwich of ceramic-coated Kevlar layered onto Kevlar-reinforced foamed IMPP. This design supplies solid low-end punch, with exceptional mid-bass definition. A butyl rubber surround ensures smooth cone excursion for deep, strong lows.
The polyester fiber dome tweeter broadcasts glassy smooth highs. A rear chamber tweeter enclosure further improves tweeter response for cleaner output. The tweeter's compact and powerful neodymium magnet provides excellent performance even when the power levels are cranked.
For absolutely accurate sound reproduction, the TS-D161R has a built-in 2-way crossover. The filters of the crossover route the high and low frequencies precisely to the proper drivers, resulting in well-focused and lifelike audio imaging. These speakers also fit in 6-3/4" speaker openings.

Dual-Layer Kevlar Cone Woofers: Each speaker features a cone comprised of two layers: an outer layer of ceramic-coated Kevlar, and an inner layer of Pioneer's Rigilite IMPP (injection-molded polypropylene) reinforced with Kevlar fiber. This dual-layer construction, light weight, rigidity, and incredible strength of Kevlar delivers excellent responsiveness, accurate movement, and high resistance to flexing. This unique design gives you tight, detailed music with improved mid-bass definition and punch.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds.
1-1/8" Laminated Polyester Soft Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1-1/8" laminated polyester fiber dome tweeter with magnetic fluid and a Neodymium magnet. The tweeters are encased in a specially-designed anti-resonant sealed rear chamber. The waveguides in front of the tweeters provide wide sound dispersion. The tweeter produces exceptionally smooth, detailed, high-frequency sound.
Tweeter Enclosure: The rear chamber tweeter enclosure extends mid-range frequency for improved vocal imaging and staging. The chamber is notched behind the cone to decrease standing waves, and to lower frequency response. The tweeter enclosures are mounted above a distinctive copper ring.
Strontium Magnets: The woofers have high-energy, 11-ounce strontium magnets with a rubber magnet boot. The magnet boot dresses up the magnet, and allows the mounting depth to be reduced.
Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbins: Each speaker has a Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbin for higher power handling.
Built-in 2-Way Crossovers: A 2-way, 12dB/octave high-pass filter and low-pass filter is attached to each speaker to improve the transition from mid to high frequency. Audiophile-grade capacitors and inductors are used, and all components are encased in a clear acrylic cover for protection.
Stamped Steel Basket: The speakers feature extra-thick stamped-steel baskets for strength and to reduce ringing.
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.
Grilles: The speakers include silver spoke grilles made of heatproof resin.
