SINGAPORE, KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia and BANGKOK--1 Oct--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre, a leader in aftermarket car audio, today launched its latest line-up of 2019 A-Series speakers and subwoofers, built to deliver superior audio performance in an easily installable and affordable package. This year's lineup of A-Series speakers includes a variety of models available in the 13-cm, 16.5-cm, 20-cm, 25-cm, 4x6-Inch, 6x9-Inch, and 6x8-Inch sizes -- specifically, the TS-A1600C, TS-A6990F, TS-A6980F, TS-A6970F, TS-A6960F, TS-A1680F, TS-A1670F, TS-A1370F, TS-A1306C, TS-A2013i, TS-A2503i, TS-A6880F, TS-A4670F speakers, and TS-A300TW tweeters. To complement the speaker release, Pioneer will also be launching a lineup of A-Series subwoofers in October 2018 -- specifically, the 12-Inch (30-cm) TS-A300D4, TS-A300S4, and TS-A300B preloaded box subwoofer, as well as the 10-Inch (25-cm) TS-A250D4 and TS-A250S4.

"At Pioneer, we believe that everyone should have the chance to experience the best that in-car entertainment has to offer. We understand that many new car buyers desire a louder and more defined audio experience than what factory-fitted speakers can offer," said Mr. Takao Chiba, Deputy General Manager of Product Planning and Marketing Division, Pioneer Electronics Asia Centre. "Our 2019 lineup of A-Series speakers and subwoofers are not just engineered to fill that desire for a louder, more defined and dynamic audio experience -- they are also made specifically to be easy to install and fit most car models, so that drivers everywhere can enjoy the benefits of new sound technology".


The main highlight of the new A-Series speakers is their improved sound and enhanced dynamic range, thanks to Pioneer's newly developed speaker technology. These redesigned speakers sport new tweeters, light-but-rigid Carbon and Mica reinforced IMPP(TM)speaker cones larger in size compared to its predecessors, and a flexible moving spider with a wider controlled excursion. All these translate into a powerful audio experience with extended high frequencies, deeper bass, and low distortion that easily outperforms factory-fitted offerings and the competition.

Engineered specifically to provide drivers with punchy bass, the new lineup of A-Series subwoofers allows for a full-sounding audio experience. These subwoofers come packed with improved technologies developed specifically to go above and beyond the competition, such as a highly rigid IMPP(TM) composite cone, high compliance rubber rolled edges, and dual spiders. The result is a punchy and rhythmic sound, with a smooth response suited perfectly to complement the improved dynamic range offered by the new A-Series speakers.


To help drivers have a seamless, hassle-free installation experience with the new A-Series speakers, Pioneer is including a new adapter kit with selected speaker models. These adapter kits feature a variety of mounting holes that fit virtually most car models in the market, allowing drivers the option to easily install the speakers themselves. In addition, it also negates the need to invest further in third party modifications for a proper fit. Drivers looking for more information on factory fitting and guidance on speaker choice will be happy to know that Pioneer has released the Pioneer CarSoundFit app, which allows users to simulate the sound quality produced by Pioneer speakers versus factory-fitted setups. Pioneer CarSoundFit is available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for most countries today.


Pioneer is also launching an all new Pioneer DEQ-S1000A Universal Sound Processor alongside the A-Series speakers and subwoofers. The DEQ-S1000A sports MOSFET 50W x 4 amplifier, 3 x Hi-Volt RCA pre-outs, and a full-custom, high-performance 48-bit dual-core DSP -- significantly improving the sound quality produced by factory-fitted receivers. Since the existing receiver does not have to be removed, installation is uncomplicated -- the compact sound processor can be installed almost anywhere in the car.

Drivers will also be happy to know that the DEQ-S1000A can be controlled via Pioneer's Sound Tune app, available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. With Pioneer Sound Tune, drivers who are new to audio tuning can easily select EQ presets, adjust EQ settings across 31 bands to their liking with just a swipe of the finger, and enjoy special sound effects like Super "Todoroki" Sound and Live Simulations. Audiophile drivers seeking to achieve the perfect audio experience can even customize their sound in-depth with features such as time alignment and crossover setting adjustments.
