16.5 cm 2-Way Speaker
The Z is based on highly advanced technology developed by Pioneer, employing carefully selected materials and parts, benefiting from decades of automotive loudspeaker design theory and testing ability. Following Pioneer’s OPEN & SMOOTH™ sound concept, the Z series of automotive loudspeakers features smooth off-axial frequency response, superior directivity and extended frequency range engineered specifically to produce dynamic, accurate sound quality for the car. The result is a purity of sound that achieves unprecedented audio artistry.
Designed for Hi-Res Audio
The quality of music recordings available to listeners has evolved. Hi-Res Audio recordings contain significantly more data compared to a standard CD recording and require a loudspeaker that is capable of smoothly reproducing frequencies of 40kHz or higher. The Z speakers are designed to deliver sound that is clearer, sharper and more complex - reproducing music that is closer to the original performance.
Dual Layer Cone Construction
Twaron® is a synthetic aramid fiber that is very strong, heat resistant and rigid when woven into a cloth material.
Strength and rigidity are important to keep cone shape at higher powers and maintain responsiveness. Both the TS-Z65C and TS-Z65F are built with Twaron. The TS-Z65CH features a dual layer cone constructed with both a Twaron and a cellulose layer, combining the strengths of both materials. Cellulose fibers are naturally self-damping and reduce unwanted resonance. The result is fast response and clear bass, with low coloration and distortion.
