LAS VEGAS -- October 30, 2012

SEMA BOOTH #11761 – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today released its new
lines of automotive TS-A Series speakers and Champion Series subwoofers that
deliver exceptional sound quality and performance. Pioneer’s new TS-A speakers
feature a new Multilayer Mica Matrix Cone, lightweight dome midrange for
brighter vocals, and a new aggressive cosmetic design. For powerful bass
reproduction, the 2013 Champion Series subwoofers incorporate the newest
technologies including a prism patterned IMPP Composite Seamless Cone, new
drive cone construction, and improved flange assembly for maximum installation

“Changing the factory speakers in the vehicle is the first step in building an
impressive audio system,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for
the Car Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “We’ve designed
our new TS-A speakers and Champion Series subwoofers to generate a louder and
more defined sound for a better audio experience.”

Refined Sound with Aggressive Looks

The design of the front grill covers of the new TS-A speakers are inspired by
the faceplates of Pioneer’s 2013 single CD players. Available in 5-1/4”,
6-1/2”, 4” x 6”, 6” x 8” and 6” x 9” sizes to fit most vehicle applications,
each speaker is aimed at providing loud and clear output for any type of
music. Their sound quality results from a newly integrated Multilayer Mica
Matrix Cone that is 30 percent lighter than similar Polypropylene cone
designs, while providing increased accuracy, clarity and sensitivity. Although
lightweight, the cone’s high-density structure handles high levels of power
and reduces unwanted flexing to produce a richer mid-bass response.

Models TS-A6995R, TS-A6985R, TS-A1685R and component speakers offer new
midrange and tweeter diaphragms with a higher sensitivity that helps to
deliver an extended upper frequency range. The entire line of TS-A speakers
can produce as much as two decibels higher output than competitive models with
the same input power. The lightweight midrange design generates brighter
vocals and midrange frequency response.

The TS-A speaker line-up is made up of the following models with suggested
retail price starting at $80: TS-A1305C (5-1/2” component set), TS-A1605C
(6-1/2” component set), TS-A6995R (6” x 9” 5-Way speaker), TS-A6985R (6” x 9”
4-Way speaker), TS-A6975R (6” x 9” 3-Way speaker), TS-A6965R (6” x 9” 3-Way
speaker), TS-A1685R (6-1/2” 4-Way speaker), TS-A1375R (5-1/4” 3-Way speaker),
TS-A1675R (6-1/2” 3-Way speaker), TS-A6885R (6” x 8” 4-Way speaker) and
TS-A4675R (4” x 6” 3-Way speaker).

Subwoofers that Rise to the Occasion

For clean and powerful bass reproduction, Pioneer offers a new line of
Champion series subwoofers consisting of the TS-W260S4 (10-inch), TS-W260D4
(10-inch), TS-W310S4 (12-inch) and TS-W310D4 (12-inch). Available in 10- and
12-inch versions and with dual or single 4-ohm voice coils, Champion
subwoofers feature a new prism patterned seamless cone for strength and
durability. The new cone design produces more air movement without unwanted
flexing or “buckling” effects that can create distortion.

The new cone design is further reinforced by a new dual-layer Elastic Polymer
Surround technology that is light and flexible yet dramatically more durable,
resulting in a subwoofer that can reliably provide strong bass output.

Internal components of the subwoofer were also improved by using a four-layer
copper voice coil with an aluminum former that improves heat dissipation for
higher input power handling and increased reliability. Additionally, the
subwoofer design incorporates air vents in the metal basket construction below
the spider to help further cool the voice coil.

The Champion series subwoofers will be available in November with suggested
retail prices of $100 (TS-W260S4),  $110 (TS-W260D4), $120 (TS-W310S4) and
$130 (TS-W310D4).
