Precision craftmanship and advanced materials

Focal's Integration VR Slim component speaker systems use precision craftmanship and advanced materials to deliver performance that'll really knock you out. And these systems include shallow-mount woofers that'll fit in the factory speaker locations in a wide range of vehicles.

Shallow-mount woofer with 2-layer cone

The 130 VRS system features a 5-1/4" woofer with a Polyglass cone that's created by depositing a layer of hollow glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose with the incredible strength of glass, for a cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps control cone movement and promotes high power handling. The zamak (zinc alloy) basket provides a non-magnetic, non-resonant housing that won't color the sound. The woofer measures less than 2 inches deep, so you can count on an easy installation.

Unique tweeter design

Focal designed the aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to disperse high frequencies evenly for a big, open soundstage. The external 2-way crossover ensures a smooth transition from lows to highs, so vocals and instruments sound natural. You can select from 3 tweeter levels to get the right balance in your vehicle.

Focal performance

We're always impressed by the sound of Focal speakers, and these components give you a great option for superior performance in vehicles that don't have a lot of room for speaker upgrades. Once installed and tuned, you'll enjoy incredibly natural and realistic reproduction from this system, especially when combined with a good subwoofer. Woofer and tweeter grilles are included.

Focal and My Ferrari

DarrylN from Walnut Crrek, Calofornia on 6/27/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you have an older Ferrari (mine is a 1988 328GTB) you know that the factory speakers in the doors eventually disintegrate. Mine were no different. Took my door panels off and saw that the 5.25 inch fit in the speaker wells and only needed 2 extra holes drilled on the mounting rim. Tweeters needed a little more work as I took the OEM tweeters out and modified the opening using a drill. Mounting of the Focal tweeters in the supplied metal cup-type surround was done with epoxy. Hooked everything up to a new Alpine HD149BT. Wow. Yes I love that Italian V8 sound but the Focal speakers are excellent. The shallower Focal 130 VRS were a perfect fit in the faiirly shallow doors. At home I listen to Italian Sonus Faber Amati's driven by a McIntosh tube amp. The Focals are silky with vocals and nicely focused with instruments. The supplied crossovers also make a huge difference as well. In the past I didn't care about car audio very much but now have experienced Focal and they are terrific. Am only awarding 4 stars since I had to do a little bit of drill work to mount the door speakers. The mounts were exactly 90 degrees apart but the existing holes in the door needed 2 holes drilled in the enclosure area. Pretty easy but perhaps the speaker support rim could have had multiple holes ready to use. A very small issue. Overall the speakers are very very satisfying and worth the investment.

Pros: Sound quality was surprising and quite impressive.

Cons: Wish the 5.25 speakers had a rim so that the 4 mounting screws could be placed anywhere around the rim instead of only using 4 holes at 90 degree angles to each other. This is a tiny issue.

Woofer

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.

Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Zamak Basket: The woofer features a cast Zamak basket. Zamak is a rigid alloy of Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper and is non-magnetic.

Neodymium Magnets: The woofer uses a Neodymium magnet, which has the same magnetic flux power as a ceramic magnet 10 times its size, reducing the size and weight of the speaker.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum 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 10° and approximately 30°.

Crossover

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.

Crossover Slopes: The crossovers use 12 dB per octave low-pass and 18 dB per octave high-pass filters. The crossover frequency for both is 4 kHz.

Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
