View Full Version : Pioneer Premier TS-D720C

04-08-2008, 06:28 PM
Ive tried searching for a review of these components but I couldnt find one. I was just wondering if anyone here runs them and how they preform. They are only 120 on sonicelectronix and they look pretty nice for the price. freq. response is 30-33khz so they seem like they will get loud. I like a harsh tweet but I also want good mid bass. So if anyone has these hows the tweet,mid? What do they compare to? I was looking at some DLS comps too but I dont know if they will be loud enough for me. Any other suggestions on a good loud comp set?

They are actually the 1720C, and they incorporate some of the same technology used in the TS-C720PRS components. They just came out about a month ago, which is probably why you aren't finding any reviews. I do know a member over on DIYMA just bought a set a few days ago and is waiting on shipment. Maybe stop by in a week to see his review on them. :)

The D1720C are the Pioneers and the D720C are the Premeir version.


Thanks for the info tho.

Oh right right... well they should be pretty much the same components, except the Premiers will have a 2 year warranty. Unless you buy them from Sonic. lawl ;) They seem solid though from what I can tell. Not bad for the money.

I just wonder if they will be loud enough for me,I like a harsh tweet. Looking at the freq response it seems like they will be loud,also they have a 1.1" tweet. I want good mid bass to tho. I wish I could demo them at a shop but no place around here has them.

You LIKE a harsh tweet? Good tweets can get plenty loud without being harsh...

These are the Rev replacements. I would guess they are probably on that same level; a great budget set that can get loud and sound pretty good.

nah i dont like them at all, the surround lets them down alot imo, and not having a sealed cone looses a far bit of mid-bass, in aus the model is a tsc171prs and we have them in our prs demo board atm, so anyone thats a decent pioneer/premier dealer should have them on display.... i'd much rather the old tsc160r rev splits

I have a set of the D720's coaxials ( not comps) inbound for use as rear fill. They should be here any day. They looked impressive on paper (and shared allot of features with the PRS's) anyway.

I don't expect them to sound like a $400 set of CDT's but I'm hopefull they are better than my Polk DB's for my rears.

car audio and electronics mag has a good review on them in the June edition I think you can go check it out on their website or buy the issue. They got an 80/100 which is good for a set so cost efficient.

I was able to quickly audition a set today. Now I must qualify this by saying that I have not heard many quality installs or components, BUT to my ears, I did hear a lot of midbass that people are talking about. They sounded fairly decent, the upper midrange seemed a little thin/shrill/harsh. Not enough to stop me from buying them, but enough that it might merit attention when installing. I should note that the shrillness went away off-axis, so it might be a function of the design. There was no sub running with them, but I did have to make sure because I didn't believe there wasn't one at first.

Anyway take my opinion with a grain of salt. I think they would be worth the internet prices, but my dealer wanted full MSRP of $220.00 and that is out of my budget.

The TS-C720PRS are a great step up. They get a lot of great reviews but I don't know if the tweeter is harsh enough for you since it's a soft dome tweeter.

05-11-2008, 09:13 AM
Well after the last post I don't think I will be getting a set. I am not a big soft dome tweeter type guy. Had that in my type X set and wasn't big on the tweets. Mids were ok, but just never could seem to get my tweets they way I wanted. My buddy said, don't get the soft dome tweets. I don't know, took it for his word, lol!

just mount a piece of glass or metal at a 45 deg angle to the tweeter, pointing right at you. Then monkey with the EQ a little, the heavy reflections and overdriving of the amp at select freqs will cause a horrible screeching sound you will be sure to enjoy :D

You should really try other soft domes. I don't like any Alpine tweeters. All soft domes do not sound the same. Some soft domes can sound agressive as metal, just smoother highs.

I was thinking you might want to try out some of Boston Acoustic's stuff. Like the SL60. I just feel like if it's not the top Boston Acoustic stuff, it isn't great.

Anyhow, why don't you check out the Pheonix Gold RSD65CS.

They are referred to by many as the best of the lower costing component sets. I haven't had much experience with them, but I do remember them producing a surprising level of midbass. The tweets are pretty bright as well, I think you would be really happy with them.

You can probably find them for $90 shipped. You can't go wrong.

I've got a set on the way, newegg.com has them for $118 shipped. Hope they live up to the early reviews..

I was also recently looking into getting these or either step up a little and get the PRS version, but I currently have the JL A4300 4 channel. It pushes 70 watts per channel, and these speakers say 60 RMS and the PRS Claim 50 RMS so would my amp give them too much power or no?

I'm planning on putting about 125x2 on mine. Crossed over at 80-100. I'll post how they work.
