Subwoofers From Pioneer Bring Added Dimension to Music in The Car

The missing ingredient of any standard in-car sound system is bass, and when it comes to filling the void, Pioneer Electronics has the subwoofers to gratify every music lover. Adding subwoofers will add dimensions and new life to everyday music by providing rich bass response with more punch. Whether it's rap music or the classics, Pioneer or Pioneer Premier subwoofers can surely bring pleasure to the ears.

“Adding subwoofers to any system will make a world of difference,” said Michael Townsen, director of marketing for mobile entertainment at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The bass that comes from small door speakers is never enough to make an impact. The best way to truly appreciate music in the car is to add a subwoofer like the Pioneer or Premier.”

Available in 10- and 12-inch sizes, Pioneer and Pioneer Premier subwoofers were designed to have longer excursion to produce lower bass response. Made with composite Injection Molded Poly-Propylene (IMPP) and aramid fiber, the cone uses reinforcement arcs and an inverted dust cap to substantially increase rigidity for solid, punchy and accurate bass. Large aluminum voice coils, made of polyester imide copper wire, resist more heat and the heavy-duty dual mass magnets make them exceptionally reliable. And, by using large magnetic circuits, both Pioneer and Premier subwoofers can be applied to a wider range of enclosure/box sizes resulting in deeper, more accurate bass response.

The 10-inch subwoofers are available with a single or dual voice coil and a maximum power output of up to 800 watts. The 12-inch subwoofers also have either single or dual voice coil with a maximum power output of up to 1000 watts.

The cosmetics were also enhanced for consumers who intend to display their systems. The six-spoke arcs in front of each cone are not only for reinforcement but also add a powerful look to the subwoofers. Specially matched covers with the same six-spoke arc design were used to dress up the dual mass magnets of each subwoofer giving them an overall better finish and great looks. For reliability and cosmetic appeal, the subs were treated with spring compression terminals, which also make installation easy.

Pioneer subwoofers will be available in January with a starting suggested retail price of $110. Pioneer Premier subwoofers will be available in February with a starting suggested retail price of $110.
