I just checked my car, I have the Pioneer ts-1018 up front. It looks to have a
3.5" cone, and is about 3.75" around overall. This was the key dimension,
as I recall, there's only around 4" across in that dash opening on the 4000, and
you need some space around the edges for the grill to drop back in. The 1018's
have 2 "ears" on them, and fit nicely in that sort-of-square place, whereas I
believe a conventional 3.5 with a mounting ring around the outside of the cone
won't fit. I bought these several years ago (more than 4, I'd guess) so I don't
know if they are still available. They are ok at low volumes, but can't handle
as much power as my not-too-special stereo can put out.
