Twaron® Aramid Fiber Cone and Elastic Polymer Surround
The new cone and surround on the Pioneer TS-D are constructed from Twaron woven cloth that is hardened and shaped to produce a rigid, yet low mass cone with excellent dampening characteristics. Twaron is a synthetic aramid fiber which is very strong, heat resistant, and rigid when woven into a cloth material. Strength and rigidity are important to maintain cone shape at higher powers. Damping is critical to improving the responsiveness and accuracy. Maintaining low mass improves sensitivity or efficiency.
Adding an elastic polymer surround and bullet shaped phase plug, the TS-D woofers demonstrate quicker response with superior midrange extension and a very natural sound.
Tweeter – Small size, Big Sound
The new 0.9 inch tweeters on the TS-D components maintain an exceptionally open and smooth sound quality with silky reproduction of higher frequencies. The design of the TS-D tweeters include a soft dome diaphragm and surround constructed out of lightweight woven fibers, for increased sensitivity and improved response. In addition, the tweeter is designed with a larger rear chamber and rounded over flange, for extended frequency range and wider dispersion. To fit in the various tweeter locations found in vehicle doors and dashboards, the tweeters have a compact 1-1/2 inch outside mounting diameter and a mounting depth of only 7/8ths of an inch. The tweeters also feature an integrated grille to aid installation behind vehicle OE (Original Equipment) tweeter locations.
Installation Friendly Crossover
The crossover network on the TS-D components has been redesigned to significantly reduce the chassis size while maintaining the use of high quality capacitors, inductors and resistors. The compact size improves installation flexibility, allowing the crossover to easily fit inconspicuously inside a door, under the dash or behind a panel. A selectable tweeter level switch (-3dB, 0dB, +3dB) also allows the output of the tweeter and woofer to be closely matched.
Installation Speaker Mounting Adapters Included
The component package offers multiple tweeter mounts and woofer/tweeter installation adapters to fit in many of the most popular and top selling vehicles on the road today. The TS-D1730C includes a pair of 6" x 9" & 6-3/4" woofer/tweeter installation plates designed to mount the woofer and tweeter into factory door locations. The plates are pre-scored with vehicle specific cutouts to match the speaker locations in many Toyota®, Scion®, and Honda® vehicles. The speaker package includes tweeter spacers to accommodate flush or angle mounting.
