Focal Performance R-165C

Overview

Our take on the Focal Performance R-165C

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.

Affordable Focals

Auditor 6.5

The R-165C's large magnet guarantees superior power handling.

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.

Speaker Up

Make no mistake, these Auditor Series R-165C 6-3/4" coaxial speakers 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 this speaker's polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround to withstand that kind of damage while delivering robust sound. You'll enjoy a new richness of bass and midrange articulation while gaining an added dimension in the high frequencies, thanks to the R-165C's Mylar tweeter. This is an upgrade you won't regret.

installed in front doors of 2008 Silverado LTZ absolutely outstanding quality and sound very good bass for only 6.75 speaker replaced Paper BOSE speakers. Warm and rich crystal clear Powered off stock Bose Amp for now. No regrets buy Focal you wont be sorry.

Good sounding speakers

2009 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sounds great in my rear doors in my Subaru Forester. Installed with the recommended baffles and wiring harness. I'm running them off the factory head unit. This highs are a bit loud, the mids are clear, and the lows are to be expected off the factory stereo. I'm sure they will sound amazing with an aftermarket head unit and/or amp.

Pros: Sounds better than stock Easy to install

Cons: High's are louder than expected

absolutely outstanding sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome speaker, needed deeper bass to satisify my teen aged daughter music tastes. Heavier magnet than previous aftermarket speakers produces great lows. I took the advice of my Crutchfield Advisor Marshall with years of experience, a perfect choice.

Pros: Handles high wattage, deep bass settings. Soild construction

Cons: None

2001 Pontiac Firebird
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in my 2001 TransAm WS6, after replacing my front components with Focal Performance 165AS, I repaced the back with these R165C. Running on 2 Amps, for Speakers and Sub. These are the absolutly the most Awsome speakers I have ever had. Focal is the way to go.

Pros: Fast Delivery, Easy Install, Fantistic Sound.

Cons: None

Love em...

2012 Chevrolet Camaro
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

easy install and great sound.

Pros: Everything was sent to do a quick install

Cons: Adapters had tabs but I had no instructions on mounting the speakers to my adapter for my car. Might be too much to ask for, but I am not sure if those adapters are specific to my Camaro. Still it was pretty much common sense, but I have done installs like this on other vehicles.

Fantstic!!!!!!!

Features

Woofer: The polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround are resistant to the temperature extremes and humidity often found in the automotive environment, adding to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Tweeter: Each speaker features a Mylar dome tweeter for crisp highs.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Focal, call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

They might fit but i do know that they're not exterior speakers and therefore would not even consider them because they're not weather resistant. [ MICHAEL  Jul 12, 2015 ]
