Editor's Notes

February 27, 2020:

It's easy to get stuck wading through the hundreds of car speakers available for purchase these days. So we've picked out a couple quality manufacturers who make affordable and well-made units in a variety of sizes and price ranges. In this case, we dove into the currently active Pioneer lineup, paying special attention to the latest releases and the most innovative technologies they have to offer.

The majority of their offerings are common coaxial speakers that need only a single left and right input from a head unit to function. That doesn't mean they sacrifice sound quality, but actually quit the opposite; the A1680F Coaxial are a high-performing pair of 6.5-inch speakers with plenty of support for aftermarket stereos, while the A Series 6990F are a quite impressive pair of 6-by-9s that can pump out big sound without breaking. The A Series 6880F aren't quite as powerful, but if you want to noticeably exceed the power of your old stock system without spending a fortune, they're worth looking at. The Pro 6900 are similarly powerful, but their high price means they're not quite as good of a deal as the A Series models are.

Alternately, if you aren't installing a super loud head unit, the G Series 1620F will do just fine, especially with a little equalization. The G Series 4620S, meanwhile, cost next to nothing and are actually superior to the stock speakers found in many of today's budget-friendly, used sedans. They're certainly an upgrade over blown speakers, at any rate.

For those willing to do a little extra work, we've included the mid-level A652 Component and extremely high-end Z65CH 2-Way. These component systems require considerably more work than a coaxial system, both to install and tune, but if you want to step your satellite game without breaking the bank, they might be the way to go.

Speaking of stepping up your game, the Z10LS4 Subwoofer is an impressive piece of equipment and one of the best at its price point, but you'll have to do all the work of installing it in a cabinet. The SWX3002 Subwoofer, on the other hand, isn't only self-contained, it's also designed to fit into places where you may not have known a 12-inch subwoofer could fit.
