Conclusion: I bough these to replace tired and blown factory speakers... Anything would have sounded better than them really but I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing quality the speakers produce even with just a factory deck. The built in crossover allows for great mids and lows and lets the tweeter do what it does best without it piercing your ears! I can't wait to hear these powered by an amp and an aftermarket deck.
Conclusion: I own a 2002 Camaro Convertible with the Monsoon stereo. I was getting tired of blowing the front factory speakers so several years ago I replaced the factory speakers with Kenwood speakers and a new Kenwood amp. Those speakers lasted several years and sounded even better than the factory original speakers. But I eventually wore them out as well. They just lost their punch and started to sound dull.
Conclusion: Great product. I tend to like loud and clear vs bass in my door speakers since I have a good sub. Not quite as clear as my Infinity Kappas but they didn't have them in the right size for my Altima and they were in the right price range I was looking for.
Conclusion: The Pioneer TS-D1702R speakers are Great speakers! The sound quality and power handling capabilities of these speakers are Excellent! I always used Infinity speakers for the sound quality, but these speakers sound better through the sound spectrum. I am very impressed with the bass response and the mids and highs that these speakers produce. From hard rock to jazz to hip-hop to classical, these speakers reproduce the sound accurately!
Conclusion: These D17's are a huge deal in terms of what your going to get out of them. The price is considerably lower than the competition(Crutchfield), and I'm still reaping the value out of them today. I purchased these back in 2010 in they have been in two different vehicles, and they still put out highs & mids like you would expect out of quality Pioneer.
Conclusion: Since I purchased these speakers I have been 100% satisfied with them. Sound quality is very open and clear. For what I paid for these speakers I think you'd be extremely hard pressed to beat them. Bass is nice and deep, mids cut through great while still being very smooth, and the highs are also very smooth with plenty of cut. I have a kicker 12" CVR sub I use for bass and even competing with an 800w sub these speakers cut through the mix.
Conclusion: Great quality speakers. They sound crisp and provide decent mid levels even being ran off a 50wx4 20rms headunit (no amp). A side note that these speakers are pretty deep, I ended up having to rear mount them.
Conclusion: I had quite possibly the crappiest sound in my cargo van: Just a standard AM/FM, 2 Channel (Yup, just left and right) stock head unit with crap-ola speakers. Since I wanted stealth sound, I decided to change the speakers first. Wow, what a difference these made. It is seriously like a whole new stereo system! The speakers are in the doors and so I lined them with the Roadkill sound dampening sheets.
Conclusion: I installed in my 05 Dakota. They were a great fit, and the sound is incredibly crisp at all levels. I have them powered by a 4 channel 800 watt amp and they sound great at high levels. I am only sorry I went with a 4 way in the rear instead of all 4 TS-D1702R. Can't beat for the price.
