So Im wondering if the Pioneers will need a lot more volume control input to drive them and get to good sound levels. For the guys with the Pioneer TS D6802R's , did you notice lower sound levels at the same setting w when you replaced the speakers with them ?
I like it loud.
Higher sensitivity should mean a more efficient speaker with the same amount of power. However, I don't know if you will notice it all that much. The Polks DB571 5x7 speakers have a sensitivity of 93db. So your Pioneers are close to them. Specs are Specs from the manufacturer until your hear them with your own ears. You should be happy with your Pioneers.

The Pioneer TS D6802R's look like great speaker IMO. They have a wide frequency range that will match well with almost any type of music. A nice thing about the Polks is the tweeter has a mix of Silk material which can be more smooth sounding, but again this is a picky preference thing.
