Quit trying to use 5”x7” speakers in 6”x8” holes. Pioneer’s 6”x8” Perfect Fit speakers are designed to fit perfectly in Ford or Mazda vehicles. A full 260W max (50W nominal) power handling capacity let you crank it up without worrying about blowing your speakers.
The Injection-Molded PolyPropylene (IMPP) cone is interlaced with two types of Aramid fibers for cones that are both lighter and more rigid. This allows for a tighter, more powerful bass response. The balanced-dome midrange uses a laminated polyester fiber that is 30% lighter than conventional materials. The lighter materials deliver a faster and more accurate response, and you get less power waste from moving the cones which means more volume per watt.
Don’t forget the highs. These four way speakers have a 5/8” dome tweeter and a 3/8” dome supertweeter. The overall frequency response of the speakers is an amazing 30Hz to 30kHz. Pioneer knows sound. Get to know Pioneer.
Excellent upgrade from stock
This review is from: Pioneer TS-A6881R 6" x 8" 260 Watts Peak Power 4-Way Speaker
Pros: Far more responsive than stock speakers. Low bass notes were actually hit with these speakers, while the stockers would only make an unattractive thudding sound indicating bass was there.
Cons: A minor complaint, but they are a hair quieter than the stockers. This should only be noticeable in direct comparison to the stockers as I tested them. It shouldn't be an issue with all four installed.
Other Thoughts: I installed these in a 99 Explorer, Pioneers in back, stockers in front. The Pioneers took everything the stock head unit could throw at it (full bass, full treble, full volume) without distortion. I had the stockers set up with little treble, mid level bass, and then they could be cranked... most of the way up without distortion. The Pioneers are far clearer, crisper, and cleaner. If you never had a problem with the stock speakers before, give these a try, and you will.
