Pure bass power

Focal's Performance Series subwoofers deliver pure bass power so your music always hits strong and true. This Performance Series SUB P 25 10" sub features a light, tough poly cone and a self-regulating cooling system, so it'll perform reliably even when you're pushing it hard. A butyl rubber surround adds to the sub's strength, durability, and accuracy.

Performance and versatility

With heavy ferrite magnets and a 4-layer voice coil, it's no surprise this sub handles plenty of real world power — up to 200 watts RMS. The 90 dB sensitivity rating means your amp won't have to work as hard to drive this sub, so you'll get maximum wallop per watt. You can 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 150 and 300 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.

This sub delivers very high sound quality and can also get pretty loud, and for the price I don't believe you could do any better. I have used subs that cost a lot more and not had the performance that I get from this one. Great value. As with most speakers I think a large degree of the performance is having it in a box designed for the sub and having a good quality amp with plenty of clean efficient power to run it. Good cables and power source for the amp are also important. This sub needs to be in a ported box and the size of the box and port need to be correct. The ideal box specs are listed and Crutchfield can help you with that. Focal actually lists alternative box/port sizes to achieve tighter bass or better low frequency performance. I actually built my box and tuned my port about half way between tight and the ideal listed, and the low frequency response is as good as I've heard, the sound quality and tone at very low frequencies often gets lost, this sub plays them accurately, string bass sounds like string bass, bass guitar sounds like bass guitar, kick drum... Etc. Sometimes subs just play the sound without that detail especially on really low notes. Best sound quality I've ever heard from a ported enclosure, sounds better than most sealed setups I've heard. I generally like small sealed boxes, I love this setup.

Pros: Great sound quality, great value, build quality looks good and appears very durable. There are a few nice touches with the build that I've not seen with other brands, like the wires connecting the binding posts to the voice coil are sturdy and foam wrapped. Snyder looks very solid, more than I would have expected for a sub at this level, nice features overall. Also this sub can play higher frequencies better than most, it advertises up to 400hz, I set my crossover at 200, no distortion.

Cons: Must be in a ported box, don't buy it if you need a sealed enclosure, not sure how it would sound but I'm guessing not good. Most subs can go either way, Crutchfield says no and so does focal. Box and port size are pretty specific, could be difficult if you aren't building a custom box. 4 ohm version only, you have to have a pretty hefty amp to get 200 w rms at 4 ohms, there is a dvc version but it's 3x the price. Could get more power from a smaller amp if it was available in 2ohm

Great for the money

Wanted some base for the 68 Baja I am building and this sub seemed like my best choice for the price and not needing huge bass. I did a full restoration on this Baja and was able to build a enclosure perfect for this sub and am running it with a fosgate 300 watt amp which for me does just fine. Great solid lows and great build quality. Definitely a good buy for the money.

Pros: Great value, good build quality, looks great and excellent bass.

Cons: None

I replaced an Alpine Type-R 10" DVC with this P25 sub because I needed something slightly shallower in my new vehicle (custom box). I didn't expect this to be quite as strong as the Alpine which is larger, heavier, and more expensive. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this sub punches well above it's weight and lives up to the Focal name.

Pros: Great Sub! Great Price!

Cons: None

Easy cross-fit in my JBL sub box, both 10" subs came out of the box and were installed with no problems whatsoever. I had to port the box and Crutchfield sent me the information and details I needed to get it done. Excellent customer service too. The sound through my Zapco ST5D is phenomenal. These Focal's handle it!
