5-1/4″ Component Speaker System
About the Pioneer TS-D1330C
Speakers for the Discerning Ear
Pioneer puts their passion to work with their latest D-Series TS-D1330C speakers. They crafted the TS-D1330 component speaker system with an intention toward a more open and smooth sound, so you’ll hear all the distinctive details from the recording process that an artist wanted you to hear. Listening to music on these Pioneer components will give you the unmatched and thrilling feeling that you are there.
All the right parts
Let’s start with the 5-1/4″ woofers. Pioneer uses an aramid fiber cone woven with Twaron® cloth, materials that are recognized for their lightweight, durability, sensitivity, and heat resistance. Combined with a rubber surround and a bullet phase plug, the TS-D1330 woofer is incredibly responsive with excellent damping ability and heightened sound dispersion. What does all of that mean for you? Accurate, natural-sounding performance, fit for long life in your car.
Pioneer reinforces the open sound by using a 7/8″ fabric dome tweeter equipped with a larger rear chamber and a rounded flange. This gives you an extended high range and better dispersion, so that no matter where you sit in the car, you’re not missing a thing. Thanks to a shallow mounting depth and included adapter rings, you’ll be in better shape to mount these tweeters where you want to, instead of where you have to. Included external crossover systems feature a selectable tweeter level switch so that you can more closely match the output of the tweeter to the woofer.
Installation note: You’ll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.
Absolute fidelity to musical sources takes form from speakers that reproduce the ambience in which sounds originate. Stage size, musicians’ movement, aural reflection, and other distinctive details all bring these sounds to life. Pioneer D-Series speakers are available in 2-way component packages or 2-way coaxial designs in multiple sizes that fit most vehicles.
What is “Open & Smooth” Sound?™
The “Open & Smooth” sound concept of our industry-leading speakers delivers both sonic excellence and performance. The open-staging and smooth transition of driver response make for an immersive experience that is truly the ultimate in-car sound.
- Open: Open staging and sound characteristics enhance the widening effect that extends way beyond the space between speakers.
- Smooth: With smooth transitions between mid-bass and tweeter, sound from these speakers is not marred by crossover frequency dips.
Twaron® Aramid Fiber Cone and Elastic Polymer Surround
The new cone and surround on the Pioneer TS-D are constructed from Twaron woven cloth that is hardened and shaped to produce a rigid, yet low mass cone with excellent dampening characteristics. 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 maintain cone shape at higher powers. Damping is critical to improving responsiveness and accuracy. Maintaining low mass improves sensitivity or efficiency.
Adding an elastic polymer surround and bullet-shaped phase plug, the TS-D woofers demonstrate quicker response with superior midrange extension and a very natural sound.

Tweeter – Small size, Big Sound
The new 0.9 inch tweeters on the TS-D components maintain an exceptionally open and smooth sound quality with silky reproduction of higher frequencies. The design of the TS-D tweeters includes a soft dome diaphragm and surround constructed out of lightweight woven fibers, for increased sensitivity and improved response. In addition, the tweeter is designed with a larger rear chamber and rounded over the flange, for extended frequency range and wider dispersion. To fit in the various tweeter locations found in vehicle doors and dashboards, the tweeters have a compact 1-1/2 inch outside mounting diameter and a mounting depth of only 7/8ths of an inch. The tweeters also feature an integrated grille to aid installation behind vehicle OE (Original Equipment) tweeter locations.
Installation Friendly Crossover
The crossover network on the TS-D components has been redesigned to significantly reduce the chassis size while maintaining the use of high-quality capacitors, inductors, and resistors. The compact size improves installation flexibility, allowing the crossover to easily fit inconspicuously inside a door, under the dash, or behind a panel. A selectable tweeter level switch (-3dB, 0dB, +3dB) also allows the output of the tweeter and woofer to be closely matched.
Installation Speaker Mounting Adapters Included
The component package offers multiple tweeter mounts and woofer/tweeter installation adapters to fit in many of the most popular and top-selling vehicles on the road today. The TS-D1330C includes a pair of 6″ x 8″ woofer/tweeter installation plates pre-scored with vehicle-specific cutouts to match the speaker locations in many Ford® and Mazda® applications. The speaker package includes tweeter spacers to accommodate flush or angle mounting.
