Overview

Our take on the Pioneer TS-SW2541D

Pioneer's innovative TS-SW2541D 10" subwoofer packs a punch that belies its slender cross-section. Its Air Suspension Control System eliminates the need for a conventional spider structure — a cushion of locked-in air acts like a spring, providing smooth, precise movement of the woofer. This special design keeps the mounting depth of the sub at a slim 3", producing bold bass in places regular subwoofers can't go.

The one-piece die-cast aluminum basket sports a radical fin design, to provide extra cooling and rock-solid resonance control. Rugged internal parts, a powerful strontium magnet, and a cone-reinforcing aluminum dust cap round out the package.

I have this in my scion in a custom fiberglass box. I have room for other enclosures but wanted a concealed installation. I was skeptical as most are but this sub will surprise you. The price here is almost 2x over the top so do your homework.

Features

Shallow Mount Woofer: Pioneer's "Shallow-Mount" subwoofers are designed to provide wider installation options for a broad range of vehicles. They can be mounted behind or under the seats of many vehicles. Although they have a compact design, these woofers still deliver the same big-bass performance of a full-size subwoofer.

Double Cone: The subwoofer features an extremely strong and lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced IMPP (injection molded polypropylene) Composite Double Cone woofer. The stiffness of the double cone structure is greatly increased by connecting them using six fixed reinforcing nodes. This ensures the cones remain rigid even under high power input, reproducing extremely accurate and realistic sound.

Dual Surround: The double cone structure uses dual three-layer, "M"-shaped radial surrounds to attach to the basket and form the Air Suspension System. This design keeps the voice coil centered, even under high power, for clear and powerful bass.

Air Suspension System: Typical subwoofers use a spider to control the woofer cone's excursion. The Air Suspension System, formed by creating a sealed air space between the double cones, effectively replaces the spider, providing superior design and performance characteristics. It provides excellent linearity and clear bass with low distortion.

Magnet: The woofer has a high-power 42-ounce strontium magnet.

Chassis: These woofers have a massive die-cast one piece aluminum basket with rigid spokes which securely hold the top and bottom sides of the motor structure. This design effectively minimizes the undesired output loss due to any flex or vibration of the basket structure.

T-Pole Yoke: The vented and projected T-Pole Yoke design allows for better heat dissipation, increased power handling, and greatly improves linearity during large excursions by expanding the magnetic field.

Specifications

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.35 cu/ft to 0.7 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is 0.6 cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield.

Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.35 cu/ft to 0.7 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is 0.6 cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. One 3" diameter x 7" long port should be used with a 0.6 cu/ft enclosure.

Single Reflex Bandpass Volume: The bandpass box sizes recommended by Pioneer range from 0.7 cu/ft to 1.2 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Pioneer is 0.9 cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. The 0.9 cu/ft enclosure should have a sealed chamber volume of 0.45 cu/ft and a vented chamber volume of 0.45 cu/ft. One 3" diameter x 7" long port should be used with a 0.9 cu/ft enclosure.
