Our take on the Focal R-165C

by Alexander Hrabe
Focal

Why replace your factory speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Affordable Focals

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.

Auditor 6.5

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

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.
