The Access line offers a marriage of performance and affordability, allowing you to experience the best in sound with a guilt-free conscience.
Feel the bass
Bass gives your music fullness and texture. If you shortchange the bass, you're not hearing your music the way it's meant to be heard. This Focal Access Series 30A4 subwoofer uses an all-weather DFS (dual fiberglass structure) cone to deliver that depth of character you may be missing from your system. The cone's butyl rubber surround helps to ensure excellent strength, durability, and musical accuracy.
A unique ventilation system keeps the voice coil cool, allowing this sub to handle up to 250 watts RMS. Install this sub in a sealed box for tight, punchy bass, or in a ported enclosure for a little more boom.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?
A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Ease of Use
Good price, good sub great brand.3
Pros: Affordable, great looks. Small sealed volume.
Cons: The rubber gasket has Focal imprinted on it, the sub has Focal printed on it. But you can't make them line up correctly where the holes line up.
