Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
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
Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the
woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the high
frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with
sound waves from the other side of the cone.
Aluminum Basket: The cast aluminum basket is rigid and
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1-1/4"
diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Focal,
call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a
standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size
woofer as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm
fit in your vehicle.
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°.
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 -3 dB or 0 dB (flat).
Midrange Level: Set the midrange output to High or Flat to
match their position in the car. When the mids are installed low in the door,
some of the output is absorbed by the upholstery and they benefit from the High
Bi-amp: Each crossover has bi-amp inputs, one input for the
tweeter and one for the woofer. When bi-amping the speakers, the input jumpers
need to be removed. Using four amplifier channels to bi-amp the speakers
typically improves the dynamic range and presents an easier load for the amp(s)
Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 12 dB per octave low-pass
and 18 dB per octave high-pass filters. The crossover point for both is 3.6 kHz.
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they
will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
