Pioneer Adds Three Bold New Speakers for A Total of Seven REV Series Models

Three Pioneer and Four Premier REV Speakers Offer Exceptional Sound Quality with Cool New Design

Three new Pioneer REV Series in-car speakers introduced today bring a total of seven bold new speakers to consumers who desire exceptional sound quality with intriguing cosmetic design. As the leader in automotive speaker technology, Pioneer continues to raise the bar in speaker quality with a new cone assembly and laminated polyester soft dome tweeter for improved sound quality. The REV speakers introduced today by Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. include:

They join the following four Premier speakers introduced by Pioneer late last fall:

“Each year our new REV Series speakers take on a new look and design while maintaining their high quality audio performance. Consumer focus groups are used to establish the new cosmetic direction which is a bold look resembling exotic wheels with four directional spokes,” said Michael Townsen, marketing director for mobile entertainment at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

The Pioneer REV speakers are silver in tone, while the Pioneer Premier REV speakers have a graphite finish. All of the REV speakers include a magnet boot, new custom speaker basket and an acrylic crossover cover further enhancing the overall design.

To improve mid-bass performance, Pioneer developed a new patent-pending cone combining aramid fiber fiber together with Rigilite injection molded polypropylene (IMPP) composite to make the cone extremely rigid and lightweight. aramid fiber fiber material lays on top of the IMPP material and is then ceramic coated which results in improved mid-bass sound with more accuracy and detail, bringing out the body of the music, making everything from guitars to drums more life like.

Pioneer engineered the tweeter to match the response from the aramid fiber/IMPP cone by using a rear chamber design. The specially designed chamber prevents standing waves and creates a loading effect to help the tweeter produce a wider frequency response. The tweeter, made of high quality laminated polyester, is placed in a waveguide chamber to control and direct the sound to the listener's ears. To further enhance performance and ease of installation, each REV series speaker comes with a –12 dB high pass and low pass filter, using audiophile quality capacitors and inductors.

The TS-D601P, TS-D701P and TS-D161R REV Series speakers will be available in January, followed by the TS-D681R, TS-D691R, TS-D801P and TS-D901P in February. Manufacturer's suggested retail pricing begins at $180.
