Auditor 6.5

The R-165S2's woofers feature a central phase plug for enhanced sound dispersion.


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.

Time for a change

Make no mistake, Focal's Auditor Series R-165S2 component system 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 the two 6-3/4" woofers, two tweeters, and two external crossovers to withstand that kind of damage while delivering robust sound. 

The woofer's polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround will deliver a new richness of bass and midrange articulation, and the cone features a phase plug for better sound dispersion. Prepare to be moved by the bright highs and crisp detail broadcast by the "Silk Aluminum" tweeters, and gain a whole new appreciation for driving your car again.

Crossover to a new dimension

This system's external crossovers ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for a totally natural sound. The crossovers are prewired and compact enought to fit in some pretty tight places. With included flush-mount hardware, you can enhance stereo imaging by installing these tweeters in a good spot high up in your doors, in the sail panel, or on the dash.

Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes two 6-3/4" woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 external crossovers
  • polypropylene woofer
  • "silk aluminum" dome tweeter
  • rigid steel basket
  • mesh/ABS grilles included
  • pre-wired external crossover (12dB/oct)
  • power range: 2-60 watts RMS (120 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 60-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91.5
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • woofer mounting depth: 2-1/2"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Product Research

Features

Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the higher frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

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.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or surface mounted at an angle (approximately 30°) using the included adapters. Once installed in any of the housings, the tweeter will pivot approximately 15° in any direction.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.4" 1.24" 1.735"
Depth 0.835" screw depth screw depth
Frame Diameter 2.357" 1.985" 1.985" x 1.9"
Cutout Diameter 1.981" N/A N/A

 

Crossover: The input and output wires are attached to the crossover. The 19" input wires are not terminated (bare wire). Both the woofer and tweeter output wires are both 10" long and terminated with quick slides to easily attach to the drivers. The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 2-7/8" (3-1/8" including wires)
  • Height: 7/8"
  • Depth: 1-5/8"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this set, installing it was a bit of a pain (Aveo comes with 4" factory... but...) Anyway, after a bit of struggle we got'em installed and boy, was it worth it!!! Excellent sound, the only way to better this is spending more than $500 for better Focals...

Pros: Sound Quality

Cons: None
