Pioneer In-Dash Decks, TS-A Speakers, & First 5-Channel Amp Revealed

New car or old, reset that audio with an injection of 21st century sound system technology

Aug 20, 2015

Stereo system upgrade time! Take your car audio out of the dark ages by dropping in some new Pioneer technology. The electronics maker is flush with a bevy of fresh releases, including 11 new speaker sets from its TS-A line, seven new receivers, and the company’s first five-channel amplifier.

The GM-D9605 amp is small enough to fit just about anywhere but flexible enough for any number of setups. It’s rated at 2000 watts max, with the A and B channels rated at 75 watts (RMS) x 4 and the subwoofer output rated at 350 watts (RMS). Other features on the five-channel GM-D9605 include variable crossover networks, a Bass Boost Remote, and speaker level inputs.

For the highest of highs and lowest of lows, Pioneer’s next generation of TS-A series speakers might be the ticket. TS-A speakers have been designed to replace a vehicle’s factory-installed speakers, and updated features include: rigid Multilayer Mica Matrix Cone structures; new tweeters; new mesh grille design for all 6 x 9 models; new spider design that incorporates the same material used in the PRS series of high-end component speakers; and cooling baskets with air vents.

Last but not least, Pioneer introduced six new CD receivers and one digital media receiver for 2016 – the DEH-X6800BT, DEH-X5800HD, DEH-X4800BT, DEH-X3800S, DEH-X3800UI, and DEH-X2800UI CD receivers, and the MVH-X380BT CD-free digital media receiver. They feature new cosmetic designs and a variety of smartphone-centric technologies and entertainment options including advanced Bluetooth® functionality, Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA) 2.0 support for Android™ and Android Media Transfer Protocol, Siri® Eyes Free functionality, simple Pandora® station creation, USB Auto Switch, and MIXTRAX®.

The GM-D9605 amplifier will be available in September with a suggested retail price of $350. TS-A series speakers – available in 3-, 4-, and 5-way configurations, as well as 2-way component sets, with MSRPs between $80 and $150 – will go to market in September and November at authorized retailers. Finally, Pioneer’s new CD receivers will be available in August with suggested retail prices of: $120 (DEH-X6800BT), $110 (DEH-X5800HD), $110 (DEH-X4800BT), $110 (DEH-X3800S), $100 (DEH-X3800UI), and $90 (DEH-X2800UI).
