IMPRESSIVE POWER AND SOUND QUALITY FROM PIONEER’S FIRST 5-CHANNEL AMPLIFIER AND NEW TS-A SERIES SPEAKERS
5-Channel Amplifier: GM-D9605
Pioneer’s first 5-channel amplifier produces impressive power in an all-in-one solution designed to deliver big sound without sacrificing space. Ideal for any vehicle, including compact vehicles and pick-up trucks with limited real estate, the GM-D9605 also offers installation flexibility for a variety of other applications including boats and ATVs/UTVs.
The 5-channel amplifier is 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). Compared to similarly priced multichannel amplifiers, the variable crossover networks on the GM-D9605 offer increased flexibility and give listeners more control. The GM-D9605 also features a Bass Boost Remote and speaker level inputs to simplify integration into existing aftermarket or factory installed (OEM) integrated entertainment systems.
The GM-D9605 amplifier will be available in September with a suggested retail price of $350.
TS-A Series Speakers
Pioneer’s next generation of TS-A series speakers offer improved bass and dynamic range, higher power handling and a new cosmetic design. The TS-A speakers are designed to replace the vehicle’s factory installed speakers and produce improved sound quality at exceptional value. The TS-A line includes a new highly rigid Multilayer Mica Matrix Cone structure for a wider dispersion of sound with deeper bass, and a new tweeter designed to deliver an improved range of mid to high frequencies and produce optimized sound at higher volumes. The technology improvements offer better performance, enhanced sound quality and the ability to play a larger variety of popular music with heavy bass including hip hop, dubstep, and alternative rock.
- New fully covered mesh grille design for all 6 x 9 models
