Complete car audio system for under $400
What’s up guys it’s Lorenzo with Quality Mobile Video and today we are going to show you a couple new things from Pioneer.
Where to start
Last week we showed you the Pioneer AppRadio 4 and we’re going to take it a step further rounding out a complete audio system. To start, we will be using a set of component speakers. Pioneer has just introduced their new components and they’re a step up from previous model in a couple of ways.
Pioneer opted to completely revamp the tweeter. The tweeter was made smaller to more easily fit door pillars, door sails, and factory door locations. The 1 inch tweeter is a soft dome, composite design and establishes a new philosophy for Pioneer called Open and Smooth. This new philosophy is meant to broaden the soundstage beyond the internal walls of your vehicle. The tweeter incorporates a larger rear chamber allowing it to play lower for better synergy with the woofer. The rounded over flange facilitates wider dispersion to create that enveloping sound.
The woofer is all new with it’s composite fibre cone. The cone is extremely rigid and light for high speed mid-bass with minimal distortion at any volume level. To accurately combine these new drivers, Pioneer has redesigned the crossover extensively. The new crossover utilizes high quality components in an easier to mount chassis. +3, -3 and 0db adjustments to the tweeter level, are easily made with the attenuation switch.
To round out the audio system we need a sub. Pioneer has updated their well known pre-loaded enclosures. The TS-SWX2502 uses their all new line of slim subwoofers. The high quality MDF enclosure is small enough to fit in a cargo area or behind seats. It’s wrapped in high quality black carpet and matches any vehicle. The 10 inch driver provides sufficient bass to round out an audio system in a truck or hatchback.
GM-D1004 4-Channel amplifier
To complete our audio system we need some power. To power our system we opted to use the amazing new pocket size amplifier, the Pioneer GM-D1004. Don’t let the small size fool you, this class FD amplifier packs a perfect punch for our small audio system. The four channel amp can be set up to run 45 watts to each of our stereo speakers and 90 watts bridged to our subwoofer. The amplifier is perfect for any audio system, it accepts speaker level and RCA level inputs. The audio sense turn on makes it perfect for OEM stereo upgrades where remote turn ons are not available. Class FD ensures that it runs cool and very efficiently making it perfect for mounting in hidden locations or behind panels.
