Pioneer Introduces New Home Speakers


Pioneer today unveiled its next line of home theater and music speakers designed by Pioneer?s chief speaker engineer, Andrew Jones.

The new 2012 lineup, consisting of bookshelf speakers, floorstanding speakers, a center channel speaker and a subwoofer, promise to deliver excellent sound performance for both 7.1-channel home theater and 2-channel music listening.

New woofers for the bookshelf and floorstanding speakers were redesigned to feature many improvements including a vented pole piece, increased sensitivity, and a new structured surface cone. The structured surface woofer (SSW) provides both enhanced cone strength for better bass dynamics while also smoothing the response for more accurate midrange presentation.

The tweeters were also completely modified using oversized magnets and new domes for efficiency and response. A new custom-designed wave guide is used to control sound direction, optimizing on- and off-axis response to produce a more consistent sound throughout the listening space.

The new speakers continue the same high-value philosophy as their predecessors by using a sophisticated crossover network with six high quality components to generate more precise frequency division and driver matching, establishing a more realistic audio output.

Additionally, the new line maintains build quality through the use of the same RF molded cabinet construction technique used in the previous models. The enclosure reduces vibration and ringing, adding to improved sound reproduction.

The new line of speakers feature a detachable grill, rounded at the top and bottom. Pioneer also reduced the size of the SP-C22 center channel speaker for additional set-up flexibility, allowing it to fit in more spaces. The floorstanding speakers were made three inches taller in order to obtain better high frequency dispersion at a seated ear-level so listeners can enjoy better imaging and staging.

Pioneer?s new Andrew Jones designed home theater and music speakers are available in July with suggested retail prices of $99.99 (SP-C22), $129.99 a pair (SP-BS22-LR), $129.99 each (SP-FS52) and $159.99 (SW-8MK2).
