Pioneer TS-A4103 – Decent 4×10-Inch Replacment

Home » Reviews » Speakers » Pioneer TS-A4103 – Decent 4×10-Inch Replacment

Verdict

For such a small size and a competitive price, this is a pair of speakers that you just can’t miss out on. They may not be the most powerful speakers in the 4″x10″ class and may not be able to handle being connected to an amplifier, but you won’t really need to amplify them because they sound great on their own.

Pros

  • Compact and lightweight design
  • Simple installation process
  • Impressive frequency response
  • Clear and crisp sound quality
  • Great price for value

Cons

  • Average power handling
  • Not the best-looking design

Review

Pioneer is no stranger to producing quality audio entertainment products for great prices, and the story hasn’t changed with the Pioneer TS-A4103. It’s getting harder and harder every day to find such excellent build and sound quality in one product, making the TS-A4103 one of the best 4×10 speakers at this price point, if not the best.

I really like how rugged and durable the design of these speakers is, and how easy it is to fit into most vehicles. However, I’m not really a fan of the design itself, it feels like it belongs to a long lost era of electronics. Their size is pretty small and compact, but don’t expect a thumping bass due to the size. If you want bass in your sound, I’d recommend using a subwoofer alongside.

The Pioneer TS-A4103 has a sensitivity rating of 91 dB, giving you a wide range of volumes to work with and enjoy. The peak power handling rating on these speakers is 120 watts, which is reasonable for their size, but don’t expect them to handle being connected to an outboard amplifier.

When it comes to the sound quality, the TS-A4103 deliver pretty clean mid-range notes and are pretty good at reproducing higher frequencies, but as I’ve mentioned, lower frequencies aren’t something these speakers are good at putting out. The vocals and the overall sound are super clear and smooth. But if you’re into music such as heavy metal or hard rock, the TS-A4103 isn’t going to be fun.

The sound quality is further improved by the urethane surrounds and strontium magnets. Also, the injection-molded polypropylene cone does a great job when it comes to mid-bass response. The contents of this system are protected by a cloth casing that’s coated in foam rubber, which ensures that you never have to replace your 4″x10″ speakers ever again.
