Affordable Focals

Phase plug

The R-130S2's woofers feature a central phase plug for enhanced sound dispersion.


Listening to Focal speakers is an absolute pleasure, and now you can do it with a guilt-free conscience. Focal's Auditor Series speakers offer solid performance at a competitive price.

Time for a change

Make no mistake, Focal's Auditor Series R-130S2 component system will put your factory speakers to shame. Years of weather-damage and even the most conservative listening will degrade the paper cone speakers that came with your car. Focal built the two 5-1/4" woofers, two tweeters, and two external crossovers in the R-130S2 system to withstand that kind of damage while delivering robust sound.  

The woofer's polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround will deliver a new richness of bass and midrange articulation, and the cone features a phase plug for better sound dispersion. Prepare to be moved by the bright highs and crisp detail broadcast by the "Silk Aluminum" tweeters, and gain a whole new appreciation for driving your car again.

Crossover to a new dimension

This system's external crossovers ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for a totally natural sound. The crossovers are prewired and compact enought to fit in some pretty tight places. With included mounting hardware, you'll have the tools you need to enhance stereo imaging by installing these tweeters in a good spot high up in your doors, in the sail panel, or on the dash.

Installation Note: The package includes flush-mount tweeter housings, but no flush-mount hardware. You'll have to devise a way to hold those flush-mount housings in place.

Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes two 5-1/4" woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 external crossovers
  • polypropylene woofer with butyl rubber surround
  • "silk aluminum" dome tweeter
  • mesh/ABS grilles included
  • pre-wired external crossover (12dB/oct)
  • power range: 2-50 watts RMS (100 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 65-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • woofer mounting: 2-1/8"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Disappointing

Written By CodyC, Idaho on Thursday, April 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers expecting a major improvement over the stock speakers in my 2015 Honda Accord Sport. I was greatly disappointed. These speakers have very poor midbass response the way they're mounted. I completely lost definition in my music.

My car could accommodate 6 1/2" speakers, but these are only 5 1/4" woofers. I think that this may have something to do with the poor sound. I will be returning these and purchasing something with 6 1/2" woofers.

Pros: Raises the sound stage from the floor, clear sound

Cons: Poor midbass response (may have to do with the way they're mounted in my car)

Awesome Speakers!

I am so far loving my Focal speakers. I installed them into my 2011 Jeep Wrangler with small adjustments needed. Would recommend to anyone for the price.

Pros: Sound awesome!

Cons: Adjustments needed to mount into Jeep Wrangler.

Installed these in my 2014 Accord LX with the stock head unit and couldn't be happier! The tweeters are SO clear and crisp I can now hear more detail in my music than I ever had before! The woofers are ok...not a ton of bass, but they are definitely better than my stock speakers!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speakers are easy to install great quality. Mid bass on a 5 1/4 is not going to be that good but sounded better than Polk db component.I have an altima 07 I was told 6 1/2 speakers wouldn't fit but there are brackets that you can buy not from Crutchfield. I got the is165 focal 6 1/2 and compared it with this speakers. Please get the 6 1/2 better mid bass and it sounds like music is played at the lower frequency range rather than playing it on the higher end frequency like the 5 1/4. To me this speakers got the highs covered but u will need a subwoofer to compliment the lows. Tweeters sound awesome not harsh very balanced.sounds good even with stock radio

Pros: Balanced highs crisp sound , small crossover easy to connect

Cons: Lacks mid bass, if u can get the 6 1/2 auditor or higher end iss165 focal

great sound and quality at a great price

Ordered the speakers from Crutchfield. Got here soon. Ordered for a 98 K1500 Silverado. Excellent build quality. They sound good. Bass is ok but what you expect from a speaker size like this. Bass is better than stock. Great for price. Tweets mounted right up to stock tweeter location. Very impressed. Focal.You can't go wrong. Thanks Crutchfield.

Pros: Price, build, Focal.

Cons: None

Great Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really good quality and loud sound. I'm impressed with the performance.

Pros: Loud, clear, and not to expensive. Loved the plug and play kit.

Cons: Crackling at higher volumes, ear piercing highs. The twitters are out performing the mids.

Features

Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the higher frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or surface mounted at an angle (approximately 30°) using the included adapters. Once installed in any of the housings, the tweeter will pivot approximately 15° in any direction.

Note: Although the tweeters are shipped in their flush mount housings, no flush mount hardware is included. A method of holding the housings in place must be fabricated.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.4" 1.24" 1.735"
Depth 0.835" screw depth screw depth
Frame Diameter 2.357" 1.985" 1.985" x 1.9"
Cutout Diameter 1.981" N/A N/A

 

Crossover: The input and output wires are attached to the crossover. The 19" input wires are not terminated (bare wire). Both the woofer and tweeter output wires are both 10" long and terminated with quick slides to easily attach to the drivers. The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 2-7/8" (3-1/8" including wires)
  • Height: 7/8"
  • Depth: 1-5/8"

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

One word, WOW!

Written by Jude, Director, Digital Imaging, on 9/4/2014 8:23:00 AM

I recently purchased a set of these to replace a pair of 4" Sound Ordnance coax speakers in the front door of my son's 2002 Pontiac Sunfire. The 4" speakers sounded good, but with two 12" subs in a band pass enclosure and 6.5" components in the back deck, they were just getting overpowered.

We used the .75" lift rings (item #003SG525DX) to get us the depth we needed since these speakers are not recommended for this car, but we found there was enough room between the door and door panel to accommodate and the gaps that were present we sealed with Dynamat.

We mounted the tweeters in the factory mounting pods that are part of the door and connected these to the power of just the radio which is the JVC KD-R950BT. All I can say is WOW! They sound clear, the highs are crisp, and all the detail just makes the music we have been listening to sound all new again. If you are looking for great sound with clarity and performance, these will do the trick. My son and I are sold!
