Pioneer Elec­tron­ics has an­nounced a new range of rea­son­ably-priced high sen­si­tiv­ity/SPL speaker com­po­nents in the Pro se­ries.

The new driv­ers have been de­signed for very high SPLs while be­ing of rugged con­struc­tion to with­stand tem­per­a­ture ex­tremes in both the high power voice coils and the in­clement car en­vi­ron­ment.

“These speaker com­po­nents are ex­tremely pop­u­lar in coun­tries like Brazil, Venezuela and Colom­bia where high SPLs are re­quired for the street par­ties and sim­i­lar events that tend to hap­pen there. How­ever they are now be­com­ing pop­u­lar through­out the world.

“The PRO com­po­nents pro­vide high SPLs, clean pow­er­ful sound at a very af­ford­able price” ex­plained Daniele Mar­i­ani Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Man­ager Pioneer Elec­tron­ics Aus­tralia.

The new range fea­tures a choice of driv­ers for any sit­u­a­tion or speaker con­fig­u­ra­tion. First off is a choice of two ‘Bul­let’ tweet­ers the 3.5-inch TS-B350PRO ($89/pair) and the 4-inch TS-B400PRO ($99 each). The TS-B350PRO fea­tures a ti­ta­nium di­aphragm and of­fers very high sen­si­tiv­ity at 100dB while it’s ca­pa­ble of 100 watts con­tin­u­ous and 250 watts max­i­mum power. Its larger sis­ter also bears the ti­ta­nium driver di­aphragm, al­beit slightly larger at 4-inches, while cop­ping 200 watts con­tin­u­ous and 500 watts max­i­mum and with a stag­ger­ing 106dB sesnsi­tiv­ity. Both tweet­ers have been de­signed for long pro­jec­tion ‘throw’.

There is also a choice of two for the mid/mid-bass du­ties by way of the 6.5-inch TS-M650PRO ($229/pair) and the 8-inch TS-M800PRO ($269/pair). Both driv­ers fea­ture large and pow­er­ful mag­net sys­tems, blended pulp cone ma­te­rial and cor­ru­gated sur­rounds. The TS-M650PRO is 94dB ef­fi­cient with a 4-ohms im­ped­ance and it’s ca­pa­ble of han­dling 110 watts nom­i­nal and 500 watts max­i­mum. Its fre­quency re­sponse spans from 50Hz to 18kHz. The larger 8-inch TS-M800PRO can take 180 watts nom­i­nal and 700 watts max­i­mum power. It’s also a 4-ohms im­ped­ance driver with a sen­si­tiv­ity of 96dB and a fre­quency re­sponse be­tween 40Hz and 15kHz.

Round­ing out the full range driver ar­ray of the PRO se­ries is the TS-6900PRO ($289/pair), a 4-ohms 6x9 coax­ial driver with a 100 watts nom­i­nal and 600 watts max­i­mum power rat­ing. The sen­si­tiv­ity is 92dB and its fre­quency re­sponse spans the range be­tween 29Hz and 4kHz.

Fi­nally, the PRO se­ries in­cludes the dual 4-ohms TS-W1200PRO 12-inch sub­woofer ($299 each) which won’t re­quire a mas­sive amp to drive it, see­ing its sen­si­tiv­ity is a whop­ping 105dB. It’s no slouch in the power game ei­ther with a nom­i­nal rat­ing of 450 watts and a max­i­mum of 1500 watts. The light pulp and cor­ru­gated sur­round should pro­vide fast and punchy bass that is rated at span­ning from 20Hz to 500Hz.

At a re­cent launch we had a brief lis­ten to these new com­po­nents and found the sound clean and pow­er­ful from a sur­pris­ing dis­tance away, con­firm­ing these prod­ucts’ long throw and high power cre­den­tials.

Stay tuned for an In­Car re­view soon.
