Shallow-mount woofer with 2-layer cone
The 130 VRS system features a 5-1/4" woofer with a Polyglass cone that's created by depositing a layer of hollow glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose with the incredible strength of glass, for a cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps control cone movement and promotes high power handling. The zamak (zinc alloy) basket provides a non-magnetic, non-resonant housing that won't color the sound. The woofer measures less than 2 inches deep, so you can count on an easy installation.

Unique tweeter design
Focal designed the aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to disperse high frequencies evenly for a big, open soundstage. The external 2-way crossover ensures a smooth transition from lows to highs, so vocals and instruments sound natural. You can select from 3 tweeter levels to get the right balance in your vehicle. Grilles are included.

Focal Polyglass 130 VRS

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is an outstanding component system. With an older Porsche the choices are limited-fortunately this system not only fits but delivers great sound as well at all listening volumes. I listen to lots of different stuff-sometimes it is AC/DC, other times it is Vaughn Williams, and sometimes talk radio-these speakers do it all.

Woofer

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.

Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Zamak Basket: The woofer features a cast Zamak basket. Zamak is a rigid alloy of Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper. Zamak is non-magnetic.

Neodymium Magnets: The speaker uses a Neodymium magnet, which has the same magnetic flux power as a ceramic magnet 10 times its size, reducing the size and weight of the speaker.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum/magnesium dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter has a Neodymium magnet to provide a powerful magnetic field for the voice coil, while still maintaining the tweeter's compact dimensions.

Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted using the included adapters. Focal recommends flush mounting, but the included angled cup allows surface mounting at one of two angles; approximately 10° and approximately 30°.

Crossover

Components: Focal uses audiophile grade polypropylene capacitors and air core inductors to ensure high definition and a dynamic sound quality.

Tweeter Level: You can adjust the output level of the tweeter on the crossover to -6 dB, -3 dB, or 0 dB.

Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
