A sound investment

Focal PS 165V

Focal proudly manufactures the PS 165V system in France.

Someone else in your life might say you're splurging, but you know better. A sound upgrade is a reinvigorating investment in your car, and you'll find few brands more reliable than Focal. This PS 165V 6-3/4" component system delivers the goods with many of Focal's signature technologies working in harmony. The light but exceptionally rigid Polyglass woofer cone produces richly-textured bass and midrange frequencies without coloration. A responsive, sturdy butyl surround ensures long-lasting performance, while the woofer's phase plug enhances dispersion for excellent sound staging.

Sweet tweeter

The PS 165V's aluminum tweeter sports Focal's inverted dome structure for wider dispersion and extended high-frequency response, giving you sparkling detail in the high notes. Three different mounting possibilities let you get creative with a custom installation and get hands-on with the stereo imaging in your car.

Flexibility

Each crossover network features 3-level tweeter control, and allows you to select three different crossover points. If space is an issue in your vehicle, Focal gives you the ability to split up the included crossover networks. You can mount a high-pass filter near each tweeter and a low-pass filter near each woofer, instead of having to mount one big crossover on each side of your vehicle. This system will handle up to 80 watts RMS, and you'll want to use an outboard amplifier to get the best possible performance from these speakers. 

Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes two 6-3/4" woofers, 2 tweeters, 2 crossovers, and 2 woofer grilles
  • Polyglass woofer with butyl rubber surround
  • processed aluminum inverted dome tweeter
  • docked crossover with 3-level tweeter control and 3 selectable crossover points
  • 4-ohm impedance
  • 5-80 watts RMS power range (160 watts peak)
  • frequency response: 60-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 92.5 dB
  • woofer top-mount depth: 2-5/8"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Too bad these speakers are behind the doors, they look like works of art. The sound quality is fantastic. I just hooked them up to my factory stereo. With an amp, you could probably entertain the entire neighborhood.

Pros: Crisp, full sound on the factory stereo

Cons: Two somewhat large crossovers to install in each door. Be prepared to exercise a little yankee ingenuity. But I'm sure having two crossovers is one reason the sound is so great.

I Love These Components!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers have AMAZING sound quality! The tweeters are crisp and precise. I realize the Focal PS165V are a little spendy... However they are worth every penny!! I would recommend these to anyone. This is my second set (my wife refuses to allow me to remove the others from our other car.. She is a fan also). I have tried Infinity (Perfects), Boston Accoustic's, And several other brands and nothing compares. 5 Stars!! Try these, you will not be disappointed (of course you will need an amp to really appreciate these).

Pros: Sound, Quality, tweeter mounting options, nice and small crossover, Dudu mention you amazing these sound??

Cons: A little pricey (but worth every penny)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had just installed a new Alpine head unit and 4 kicker coaxials in my Silverado. The sound I was looking for just wasn't there even after adding a subwoofer. I purchased the focals hoping it would kick up the mid base and wow did they ever. Great sound even with the head unit set at flat. I'm tempted to buy some focal coaxials for the back speakers but it sounds pretty darn good with the kickers back there.

Pros: Great sound lows mids and highs. Love the adjustments on the tweeter crossovers so you can set the highs just where you like them.

Cons: Wish the crossovers came in single unit at least for my install.

Incredible Speakers and Deal

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just installed these on my son's 2009 Rav 4. Sound quality is exceptional and the deal at Crutchfield, under $200, was amazing. Wife was rocking it out in minutes. Installation of woofer straight forward, tweeter is a bit tougher on a Rav4...but a hot glue gun and little carving with my dremel made it all worth it.

Pros: Sound Quality...........Bass is Amazing!!! Crutchfield free ad ons made it alot easier to install than a big box purchase i made for rear speakers last week

Cons: Focal instructions were a bit 'lacking', but there was enough info online to figure it quickly.

Incredible Sound

Written By Michael, PA on Thursday, May 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are the best sounding car speakers I have owned. They make whatever artist ur listening to come alive and sound as if they're right there performing live. A little more work involved hooking them up because of the dual crossovers, but no big deal. Are they pricey at $400? Heck yeah. Are they worth it? Heck yeah! Def recommend dynamatting doors with these unless u think vibrations add to ur music.

Pros: Incredible sound. Very clear, natural, and loud.

Cons: Expensive. A little concerned with the limited power handling compared to my previous speakers, but hopefully won't be an issue.

Product Research

Woofer
Tweeter
Crossover

Woofer

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

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 woofer features a non-magnetic cast aluminum basket.

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.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. 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: The tweeters include two types of surface mount housings, one low profile and one angled:

  Flush Mount Low Profile Surface Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.282" 0.895" 1.945"
Mounting Depth 0.542" 0.875" (screw depth) 0.3" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 1.920" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.682" N/A N/A
Width N/A 1.920" 1.920"
Surface Depth N/A 1.920" 2.875"

Crossover

Crossovers: Individual crossovers are included for each woofer and each tweeter. The crossovers can be mounted separately, docked in pairs, or all four crossovers docked together and mounted as one unit. The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals and will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide. Because the woofer and tweeter crossovers are separate, and have separate inputs, the system can be bi-amped. The woofer crossover point is 3.5 kHz, all the crossover slopes are 6 dB/octave, and the tweeter crossovers offer two adjustments:

  • Tweeter Attenuation: set the tweeter output to -6dB, -3dB, or 0dB (no attenuation)
  • Tweeter Crossover Point: the tweeter crossovers also offer three crossover point options; 4 kHz, 4.5 kHz, and 5 kHz

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4"
  • Height: 1-1/4"
  • Width:
    • Individual: 2"
    • Pair: 4"
    • All four: 8"
