You knew that Pioneer is the world's top speaker manufacturer, right? All of that leading-edge experience went into these 6"x8" three-ways, and you'll instantly hear the results in your vehicle.
Composite IMPP Cone with Interlaced Dual aramid fiber
One of our major speaker breakthroughs was IMPP (Injection-Molded Polypropylene), which allowed cones to be lighter AND more rigid. Then we added long stands of Aramid fibers into the mix, for extra strength. Now, we’ve gone even further by adding a second type of Aramid fiber that makes the cone even stronger and tougher, without adding weight. So what does this mean to you? Tighter, more powerful bass. A rich, natural sound character with excellent midrange depth. And the durability to stand up to the high volume levels, humidity, and temperature extremes that thrash other speakers.
New Balanced-Dome Midrange with Laminated Polyester Fiber
Better technology, better performance: instead of conventional materials, we used a laminated polyester fiber in our new balanced-dome midrange, the same material used in the high-end REV-series speakers. The key to this material is that it is 30% lighter than conventional materials. That difference in weight means faster and more accurate response, for exceptionally clean, detailed music.
The TS-A6871R now handles a full 240 watts max. power (50 watts nominal). So, what did we have to give up? Not a thing. Along with bigger power handling, you still get the same high performance that all the TS-A’s deliver.
6" x 8" Perfect Fit Speakers There are a few things in life we'll never understand. Like why do stereo companies keep trying to force people to put 5" x 7" speakers in 6" x 8" holes? It doesn't look or sound right. That's why we've researched exactly what dimension speakers would work best with what cars. If it doesn't fit perfect, it's not gonna sound perfect. Trust us on this.
