Our take on the Focal Performance PC 165

by Buck Pomerantz
Focal

Why replace your factory speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

If you're looking for more than just replacement speakers, Focal's Performance Series speakers let the music speak for itself, providing transparent reproduction for all your recordings and listening pleasures. This PC 165 6-3/4" speaker uses a lightweight, exceptionally rigid Polyglass cone in a sturdy frame to create accurate, richly-textured sound, whether played loud or soft.

Advanced tweeter
Focal brought some of their high-fidelity technology out of the studio and into your car with the Performance inverted dome tweeters. This technology results in wider dispersion and a higher frequency response, so you'll notice greater detail in the instruments and voices. Each tweeter features a built-in phase plug and wave guide, which act together to increase the power of high-frequency notes and improve the stereo soundstage. You can also tilt the tweeter for better imaging, a big help in vehicles where the speakers are not optimally placed.

Technology that sounds like magic
Focal applies molten glass microballs onto cellulose pulp to create their Polyglass cones, combining the crisp response of the rigid glass layer with the warm sound of a paper cone. The aluminum tweeter has been similarly treated with a softer, more easily damped material that makes the treble distinct without sounding harsh. You can expect superior performance from these speakers, whether you power them with a quality outboard amp or your car stereo.

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.

Features

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.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter rotates on its post, so it can be pointed toward the listener.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I decide to buy these, because I wanted the sound of having component speakers but I didn't wanna drill holes for the tweeters in my door panels. I didn't wanna advertise "come still me" .. they fit perfect in my front doors. the adjustable tweeter helps a lot. the sound is amazing, there is mid bass, the tweeter isn't so harsh, and I could hear the voice clearly. I gotta add, with the features on my H.U, the sound doesn't sound like its coming from my door panels, rather more from my windshield. you get what you pay for. Currently it is just powered though my H.U. a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X997, rear fill is a Rockford Fosgate Prime R1675X2 and a powered sub Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-10. I will amp the speakers later, i'll update yall on it.
Pros:
great sound, adjustable angle on tweeter, love the mid bass, don't worry it doesn't hit the tweeter when the bass hits. overall great design.
Cons:
the price is pretty high for a coaxial, but if u want something great soundin like a component speakers, and have it be hidden, this is the best way to go.
