Pioneer Electronics topped even itself when it created the TS-W5000SPL subwoofer. The sub's voice coil is ceramic-coated to dissipate heat, and the overhung surround permits long cone excursions. The cone itself is made up of interlaced carbon fiber and a triple-stacked, high-energy magnet structure features an aerodynamic gap design. The TS-W5000SPL sub will handle as many as 5,000 watts of music power. For more information, contact: Pioneer Electronics USA Inc., www.pioneerelectronics.com.
