Focal's goal in speaker-making is to attain supreme accuracy in the reproduction of sound, so that your music travels directly to your heart without any coloration or interference. Utopia Be component systems exemplify Focal's dedication to perfection, bringing you performance that focuses your attention completely on the source of your pleasure: the players, their instruments, and the art of the song.
An inverted dome tweeter, made from pure Beryllium foil, lies at the heart of this Utopia Be speaker system. Lighter and stiffer than titanium or aluminum, Beryllium gives this tweeter accurate and crisp high-frequency response with a smoothness more like silk than metal. This dome reproduces frequencies far beyond the human hearing range, delivering the minute musical details and overtones that make music sound convincingly real.
Focal built the Utopia Be 6-3/4" woofer with a 3-layer cone, consisting of a 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 3" midrange speakers — miniature versions of the larger woofers — disperse the midrange frequencies that determine the character of the instruments and vocals.
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. Every Focal product and part passes a battery of inspections and tests before, during, and after assembly.
Focal arms its Utopia Be components with their Crossblock, a formidable crossover network that offers a staggering amount of control. The two woofer knobs give you a choice of 10 low-pass frequency settings and 8 different crossover slopes; the tweeter knobs let you select from 7 high-pass frequencies and 8 level selections. In total, the Crossblock gives you 80 woofer settings and 56 tweeter settings so you can tune this magnificent system to perfection in your vehicle. Focal developed the heavy-duty, hand-rolled coils and capacitors that are essential to this crossover's high efficiency and low distortion.
Note: This component speaker set consists of a separate woofer, midrange speaker, and tweeter. Our Car Selector checks to make sure the woofer will fit in your factory location. You'll have to custom install the midrange and tweeter.
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.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.
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.
Degum hit the lotto a few years back and a buddy and I threw these in my ole caviler doors and by gosh they sounded real good till I got done did stuck in a mud hole down round the lake out back.
Pros: Sound like unicorns and angels
Cons: Not mud proof
After seeing the introduction video from Crutchfield I just had to write this review. Unpacking the metal case in which the Kit no 7 is shipped is an unforgettable moment. I have this Kit installed in my car for two years now. I use it with the Focal Utopia BE 33 WX subwoofer and the Focal Dual Direct and Dual Monitor amplifiers. It actually took me more than a year to get the entire system sound well - but then you have something. If you look on the internet you find a lot of users who have some kind of trouble using this kit, for example the tweeters beeing to " crisp" or to " bright" - believe me, these are all symptoms of bad installation. Therefore, if you consider buying this kit, make sure you get expert advice on installation,let experts do the job if you're not sure yourself and keep in mind that expertise is very rare for this absolute top speaker set. Also make sure you have the highest quality of dampening material, power supply, power cables and speaker cables possible - these speakers will reveal any flaw in your sound system. Last but not least use a very precise measurement microphone and RTA software to get the crossblock settings right and keep in mind that you also have to use an equalizer for fine tuning. I use an Earthworks Measurement Microphone and Smaart RTA software for measurement

W Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich composite consisting of a foam core laminated with glass fabric on both sides. The result of this full polymerization is a composite far more rigid than other cone material combinations of equal mass, while still maintaining the excellent damping characteristics of the foam core.
Surround: The 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 non-magnetic cast Zamak basket. Zamak is a rigid alloy of Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper. The legs of the frame are filled with high viscosity rubber which absorbs any vibration in the chassis.
Voice Coil: The two layer voice coil is wound around a 40mm (1.57") diameter low-mass Black Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Neodymium Magnets: The woofers use Neodymium ring magnets, which have magnetic flux power similar to a ceramic magnet 10 times their size, reducing the size and weight of the speaker.
Cone: Like the woofers, the midrange drivers use W sandwich cones with rubber surrounds, Zamak baskets, and Neodymium magnets.
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Size: The midrange drivers are not a standard size, approximately 3" diameter. It can be top or bottom mounted and has these dimensions:
Beryllium Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted Beryllium dome, producing a broad sound stage. Beryllium is approximately seven times stiffer than titanium with inner damping characteristics similar to silk. Combined with its extreme light weight, these properties make Beryllium an excellent tweeter material. 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: Focal recommends flush mounting and the flush mount cup is built onto the tweeter housing. The included housing also allows surface mounting.
Flush Mount Dimensions:
|Frame Dimensions||2.12" x 2.87"|
Design: Focal's Crossblock crossover has multiple settings, 4,480 total combinations, allowing you to optimize the system and compensate for the driver locations and the acoustic environment of the specific car.
