When Focal set out to build their Utopia Be 165W-RC components, they wanted to create speakers whose performance approached that of their highly acclaimed Utopia series, but at a more attainable price. Mission accomplished. The Utopia Be 165W-RC system provides breathtaking sonic accuracy, with breadth of sound more akin to high-end home speakers. You'll be totally immersed in the powerful soundstage created by this Focal system, with each instrument as distinct and natural as in a live performance.
Crystal-clear Beryllium tweeter
Focal uses their signature Beryllium tweeter to take high-frequency reproduction to the next level. Beryllium may cost 100 times more than its weight in gold, but its benefits make it completely worth it. Lighter and more rigid than both titanium and aluminum, this material brings the smoothness of a silk tweeter to your music, but with the accuracy and extended response usually associated with a high-quality metal tweeter. These tweeters bring out all the tiny details that make you truly feel like you're there.
Hand-made woofer cones
Focal built the woofer with proprietary foam core laminated on both sides with thin sheets of glass fabric. Focal even varies the thickness of the foam core to ensure the absolute accuracy of the woofer's playback across the entire sonic spectrum.
The aluminum alloy basket uses an open back to cool the woofer's internal works and to prevent any trapped air from interfering with the cone's motion. Focal also includes audiophile-grade external crossovers for the smoothest possible transition between the tweeters and woofers, eliminating the peaks and dips in frequency response that can make your music sound artificial.
Note: Focal describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.
