Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
K2 Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich composite consisting
of a foam core, a structural glass fiber bottom layer, and a Kevlar top layer.
This combination of materials results in a rigid, light weight cone with excellent
Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet
rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and
Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped aluminum phase plug in the
center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by
preventing the high frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone
from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.
Zamak Basket: The woofer features a cast Zamak basket. Zamak
is a rigid alloy of Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper. Zamak is non-magnetic.
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1-1/4"
diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted Kevlar
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 15° and
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.
Midrange Level: Set the midrange output to High or Flat to
match their position in the car. When the mids are installed low in the door,
some of the output is absorbed by the upholstery and they benefit from the High
Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 3rd order, 18 dB per
octave low-pass and high-pass filters. The crossover frequency for both is 3,800
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they
will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide.

Crossover: The crossover dimensions are:
- Width: 4.915"
- Height: 1.335"
- Depth: 3.736"
