Pioneer Andrew Jones-Designed Bookshelf Loudspeakers (2-Pack)
Pioneer’s chief speaker engineer, Andrew Jones, aims to bring high-quality sound to homes with these loudspeakers that tuck away unobtrusively onto bookshelves.
Faithful Sound Reproduction
Quality speakers require a lot of cooperation among their various parts. Start off with the six-element crossover, which receives audio signals from their source and determines where they’re going. If the audio contains high notes and high-pitched voices, the crossover sends those parts to the 1” soft-dome tweeter, whose custom wave guide allows it to reproduce those sounds in high fidelity while using up less energy. Low notes travel to the 4” woofer, whose oversized magnets, structured surface, and vented pole piece improve bass accuracy.
The cabinet for each speaker comes with a woodgrain finish and a curved construction, the latter of which reduces the sound waves standing inside the speaker, in turn increasing sound clarity. To finish off the look, the optional grille covers project the speakers from damage.

If you’re going to name your company Pioneer, you better back it up. Fortunately for the electronics firm with that name, it has done so for several decades, designing innovations that soon became ubiquitous, such as the laser disc (a precursor to CDs and DVDs), automotive CD player, car GPS, DVD player, and plasma HD display. The company that is now Pioneer dates back to 1938, when Tokyo resident Nozomu Matsumoto opened a speaker shop in his garage. He couldn’t have imagined many of the products Pioneer makes today, with state-of-the-art stereo-speaker equipment for the car and home, as well as DJ equipment that enables users to finally create the long-clamored-for dubstep remix of “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
