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 1-9/16"
diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The TN53K tweeter is an Aramid fiber
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. The dispersion is controlled by the twin
radius wave guides to improve staging and directivity.
Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted.
Focal recommends flush mounting and the flush mount cup is built onto the tweeter
housing. The included angled cup allows surface mounting at approximately 30°.
Components: Focal uses audiophile grade polypropylene
capacitors and air core inductors to ensure high definition and a dynamic
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 allows slope adjustment of
both the low-pass and high-pass filters. The woofer can be run full range and
use its natural mechanical roll off, or be crossed over with a 12 dB per octave
slope. The tweeter can be crossed over with a 12 dB or 18 dB per octave slope.
The crossover frequency for both is 4,700 Hz.
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they
will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide.
