Our take on the Focal PS 130F

by Alexander Hrabe
Focal

Why install component speakers?

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.

Natural sound

The folks at Focal have never been ones to rest on their laurels, and their pursuit of sonic excellence has led them to a surprising discovery — flax fibers, at half the weight of fiberglass, help create a very rigid yet lightweight cone for speakers. Focal creates this unique cone by sandwiching a layer of hollow flax fibers between two layers of glass fibers, resulting in a lively, accurate speaker that averts unwanted vibrations.

Top of the line

Focal's Expert Series PS 130F component speaker system combines these innovative flax 5-1/4" woofers with their celebrated inverted dome tweeters and versatile crossovers. The inverted dome of the tweeters mimics woofer-style sound dispersion, distributing the high frequencies in a wide pattern to create an exceptionally natural soundstage. Focal includes an option for surface-mounting the tweeters, or you can flush-mount them for a more discreet look in your car.

A system in sync

This system's included crossover networks feature tweeter level adjustments that let you craft a precise, dynamic stereo image in your car. The crossover's quality components create a smooth transition between the tweeter and woofer, eliminating "hot spots" and dropouts in your music. These speakers will handle up to 60 watts RMS, and powering them with an amplifier will really enhance their dynamic range.

Dimensions

Woofer

Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich design, with a 0.4mm flax center between two 0.04mm glass layers. This combination of materials results in a neutral sound without coloration.

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

Aluminum Basket: The cast aluminum basket is rigid and non-magnetic.

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

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted Aluminum/Magnesium dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter uses a durable poron suspension.

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 approximately 30°.

Crossover

Tweeter Level: You can adjust the output level of the tweeter on the crossover to -3 dB or 0 dB (flat).

Wiring: The input and output wires are attached to the crossover. The 12" input wires are not terminated (bare wire). Both the woofer and tweeter output wires are also 12" long; the woofer output is terminated with quick slides to easily attach to the woofer and the tweeter output is not terminated (bare wire).

Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 2nd order, 12 dB per octave low-pass and high-pass filters. The crossover point for both is 4 kHz.
