The sum of its parts

With the first song, Focal's Access Series 165AC 6-1/2" speakers will make your old factory models fade into a distant memory. High-quality components in the built-in crossover ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for a totally natural sound. The DFS (dual fiberglass structure) woofer cone delivers precise mid-bass and midrange reproduction while offering full, articulated bass. Coupled with a butyl rubber surround, the cone's all-weather durability ensures performance even in the hottest, most humid environments without distortion or warping.

Innovation at work

Every Access coaxial speaker features inverted dome tweeter technology, a hallmark Focal innovation. The aluminum inverted dome shape does a better job of dispersing high frequencies than a traditional raised dome tweeter, creating a very wide soundstage with fine resolution and exciting dynamics. Rotate the tweeters toward your listening position to further enhance the stereo imaging.

    Product Research


    Cone Material: The Dual Fiberglass Structure Membrane (DFS) is a light, rigid, woven glass fiber woofer cone. The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

    Basket: The woofer features a fiberglass reinforced ABS basket.

    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 is angled and rotates on its post, so it can be pointed toward the listener.

    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 as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

    How do the focal 165 access compare to the focal 165 auditors? I have a 4x45 rms amp

    Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

    Why won't this fit a 2017 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab rear doors?
    [ Tracy  Aug 23, 2019 ]

    They will, but you need to do a little custom work. The door panel hits when reinstalling. A little trimming of the inside door panel oem speaker area is needed, not visible at all from the outside, that will allow these to fit just fine. I have the exact same truck and they fit perfectly now.

    Are these speakers waterproof?
    [ Marc  Sep 10, 2015 ]

    No, they're not really made for marine applications. But they're awesome and better than other speakers that are water resistant. I'd put them on my boat and just be careful to keep water away.
    [ BobTheBuilder  Sep 11, 2015 ]
    I've had them on my Harley for the summer. I've ridden through rain and washed the bike often. I've never had an issue. I don't know that they're waterproof but the don't seem to have an issue with being wet. I hope this helps. By the way, I'm currently putting a second set on this bike and have 2 more bike they are being installed in.
    [ Michael  Sep 10, 2015 ]
    Waterproof is a very specific term, and I wouldn't go so far as to say that. I can tell you that I've had these speakers and other focal's installed in a boat for several years with no problem.
    [ Steve  Sep 10, 2015 ]
    [ Jeffrey  Sep 10, 2015 ]
    NO? Seriously, no they aren't. If you're looking for waterproof, look for marine speakers.
