The famed Pioneer A-Series speakers just keep getting better and better. Our TS-A1682R 6½” 4-ways now feature upgraded power handling of 280 watts max. (50 watts nominal). And we’re continuing to lead the industry with next-generation technology for improved sound: the cones, magnets, surrounds, the voice coil wire, the basket and more are all high-performance components that make up a great speaker. Lastly, we redesigned the speaker grille to compliment the excellence of our A-Series speaker.
Composite IMPP Cone with Interlaced Dual aramid fiber
One of our major speaker breakthroughs was IMPP (Injection-Molded Polypropylene), which allowed cones to be lighter AND more rigid. Then we added long stands of Aramid fibers into the mix, for extra strength. Now, we’ve gone even further with the TS-A1682R, adding a second type of Aramid fiber that makes the cone even stronger and tougher, without adding weight. So what does this mean to you? Tighter, more powerful bass. A rich, natural sound character with excellent midrange depth. And the durability to stand up to the high volume levels, humidity, and temperature extremes that thrash other speakers.
New Balanced-Dome Midrange with Laminated Polyester Fiber
Better technology, better performance: instead of conventional materials, we used a laminated polyester fiber in our new balanced-dome midrange, making it 30% lighter. That difference in weight means faster and more accurate response, for exceptionally clean, detailed music. Plus, it eliminates the resonance that often occurs with conventional materials, for a smoother sound.
Heat Resistant Polyester-Imide Resin Voice Coil Wire
Creating mechanical energy is hot work, especially at high volume levels. And as we all know, heat can cause distortion. That’s why the TS-A1682R uses a heat-resistant polyester-imide resin voice coil wire. It allows the voice coil to handle more heat, improving input power handling as well as reliability. So go ahead. Turn it up.
The TS-A1682R now handles a full 280 watts max. power (50 watts nominal). So, what did we have to give up? Not a thing. Along with bigger power handling, you still get the same high performance that all the TS-A’s deliver.
