Released January, 2008
The Pros:High range is well represented, details are clear and it avoids tin. Low range is distortion free. Passive cross-over units are molded in - no screws to worry about.
The Cons:Not capable of clear, deep bass - volume tends to drop off at the bottom. Installation is awkward and takes a few hours. Distortion in all ranges when volume gets loud.
The Pioneer TS-A1702C are a pair of 6.75” 2-way component car-audio speakers composed out of interlaced dual Aramid fibers wrapped in a composite IMPP cone. Similar to the TS-A1302C, TS-A1702C also ditches previous models’ midrange speaker in favor of a woofer.

The more expensive TS-A1702C ($159.95 versus $139.95), however, utilizes a larger woofer (6.75” versus 5.25”), a higher maximum power handling (230w versus 180w), and a lower frequency response (31Hz-35kHz versus 36Hz-30kHz). Nonetheless, the TS-A1702C maintains its counterpart’s .875” Tetron soft dome tweeter and angled surface that allows users to customize the tweeter’s direction. Lastly, the Pioneer TS-A1702C features built-in outboard passive crossovers with –12dB/Oct, a speaker grille, and a mounting depth of 2.5”.
