Pioneer Revitalizes Smartphone Connectivity and Proves That Size Doesn#t Matter With 2019 A-Series Receivers and D-Series Subwoofers

BANGKOK, SINGAPORE and JAKARTA, Indonesia--3 Dec--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre, a leader in aftermarket car audio, today announced the release of the latest A-Series multimedia car receivers, D-Series passive shallow subwoofers, the TS-D10LB D-Series passive box subwoofer, and the TS-WX400DA powered subwoofer.

"Car owners today demand more from their factory-fitted entertainment systems can offer. They expect quality performance in a package that's easily installable and customizable," said Mr. Takao Chiba, Deputy General Manager of Product Planning and Marketing Division, Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre. "We designed our new car entertainment products to bring a significant sound upgrade over the competition, and modern connectivity features to the everyday driver -- all at an unparalleled price point."


The new A-Series receivers provide drivers with greater value and highly sought-after features in a user-friendly, stylish package. The headline feature of the A-Series receivers is Smartphone Connect, which allows users to control their smartphones via the receiver's display. Upon connecting selected Android phones to the receiver via a USB cable, users will be able to interact with apps and content on their smartphones via the receiver's large 6.2-Inch screen. Thanks to advanced Bluetooth technologies, drivers can also pre-register up to three Bluetooth-enabled devices (with two devices on full-time connection) and easily switch between them with just a tap.

The A-Series receivers also work with Pioneer's backup cameras, giving drivers peace of mind with a safe parking experience. Also available is a new user interface with a range of selectable colors and wallpapers, and a 13-band graphic equalizer with options to adjust crossover frequency control and manual time alignment.


Pioneer's new shallow passive subwoofers offer deep bass with better power linearity, depth and definition that's distortion free. While an optimized motor with an enhanced assembly produces deeper and wider low frequencies, a redesigned speaker cone with an IMPP driver ensures rich and accurate sound. These subwoofers measure just 84mm tall, making installation easy -- even in subwoofer boxes by third party manufacturers. The TS-D10LB box subwoofer is also designed to produce superior bass while just measuring 115mm tall (with mesh) and 300mm deep.


The TS-WX400DA provides drivers with powerful bass that maintains its fidelity at a high volume, while keeping power consumption low. The subwoofer comes with a Digital Bass Control wired remote which gives drivers options to switch between a deep or dynamic preset, or adjust the bass boost, crossover, phase and DBC settings to their liking. Measuring only 300mm wide, 200mm deep and 100mm tall, the new TS-WX400DA can be easily installed, even within the small space under car seats -- a feat not easily achieved with competing subwoofers.
