you should enjoy them.. I know I did when I had them. give them around 100-1200 watts each and you will be quite impressed.

Those look nice. Beefy xover. Almost looks like a phase plug, but i bet its for mounting tweetes in the coax line up.

that would be a phase plug, or as pioneer calls it, a wave guide, I have the 720prs set.

Had the same set for a few months. Had to sell due to some unexpected bills and what not that came up, but in the next couple months depending how much tax money I get, I will more than likely be getting these again. Loved them!

Or I might try the ID CTX's. Not sure.

You'll love em.

Mine are running on about 80RMS and sound great.

You gotta give em more than rated power though. Mine werent too impressive off of the 60RMS, but they really started to shine at 80+RMS. I just stick around 80RMS for longevity reasons :D

Let us know what you think. I was thinking about getting those. Then looked around at some Morels and the type Rs. Type Rs won because of price and power handeling. Still wondering how these would have sounded though.

^Ive owned the Type R's and the Pioneers win in overall clarity . The Alpines would get fairly loud but they were not as dynamic and indepth as the Pioneers.. Now if you are talking about the Morel Tempo 6, go with those .. Great comps in which DO sound better then the Premiers.

I've had a set for about 6 months, they are just a little bit weak in midbass but otherwise sound great. Seem to survive on 100w a side just fine..

Well my install was delayed because one of the tweeters in my set was bad right out of the box :crap: Not blaming Pioneer though..with almost all mass produced electronics, not everything comes out perfect all the time. But anyway, the seller that I bought it from on ebay replaced it with a new one, so it was all good.

I installed the set last Friday and I've spent a good amount of time listening to them.

Here's how they were installed in the doors, which were already sealed, deadened, and 'sludged' from my last install. Also used the same 3/4" MDF baffle which accommodated the mids perfectly. I tried different tweeter placements and I found that they sounded best close to the mid angled slightly upwards, so I mounted them in a 'braxial' configuration.

Subjective Review

System setup:

Clarion DXZ785USB -> Alpine MRP-F250 bridged for 100WRMS @ 4 Ohms x 2

Sound:

Immediate impressions were good. Great clarity, accurate response, and good tonality. Low end response and midbass were good and more than adequate. Not as exaggerated or peaky like the PG RSd's that I used before, but instead more balanced with quicker attack and less overhang. Midrange and upper end details are where the TS-D's really shine. Music and vocals sounded lively and came through with very nice presence.

- I do have the ability to run active, but I chose to start off with the Pioneer passive crossovers. I'm happy with the sound as is, so I don't intend to go active anytime soon.

Conclusion:

For about $120, these speakers are money well spent. Sound quality and build quality exceeded my expectations.

THat looks good, what did you use to mount the tweeter and how did you go about doing it?

I just cut two strips of aluminum flashing, mocked up where I wanted them to go and drilled holes for the screws. Two wood screws attach one end to the mdf baffle. Then the tweeter is screwed to the other end. The Pioneer tweeters have threaded screw mounts in the back and come with their own screws. I guess you could also use some glue or epoxy though.

They hold up really well at high volumes. No signs of stress or break up. This is with 100wRMS through the passives and my HU's high pass set to 80Hz 18dB/oct.

Well, there's a pair of tweeters (from my old Rainbow Dreamline comps) in the stock locations. They're functional, but not hooked up. I didn't like the tweeters up in those spots because of the very different path lengths.

Yeah, the TS-D's are the replacements for the REV's.

Does your mid interfere at all with hitting the tweeter? Might just be the pics, but looks like it would.

Nah, I made sure there was enough clearance. :) Just the angle of the pics I guess.
