About the Focal Performance R-165S2
The R-165S2's woofers feature a central phase plug for enhanced sound dispersion.
Listening to Focal speakers is an absolute pleasure, and now you can do it with a guilt-free conscience. Focal's Auditor Series speakers offer solid performance at a competitive price.
Time for a change
Make no mistake, Focal's Auditor Series R-165S2 component system will put your factory speakers to shame. Years of weather-damage and even the most conservative listening will degrade the paper cone speakers that came with your car. Focal built the two 6-3/4" woofers, two tweeters, and two external crossovers to withstand that kind of damage while delivering robust sound.
The woofer's polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround will deliver a new richness of bass and midrange articulation, and the cone features a phase plug for better sound dispersion. Prepare to be moved by the bright highs and crisp detail broadcast by the "Silk Aluminum" tweeters, and gain a whole new appreciation for driving your car again.
Crossover to a new dimension
This system's external crossovers ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for a totally natural sound. The crossovers are prewired and compact enought to fit in some pretty tight places. With included mounting hardware, you'll have the tools you need to enhance stereo imaging by installing these tweeters in a good spot high up in your doors, in the sail panel, or on the dash.
Installation note #1: The package includes flush-mount tweeter housings, but no flush-mount hardware. You'll have to devise a way to hold those flush-mount housings in place.
Installation note #2: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the higher frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" 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.
Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or surface mounted at an angle (approximately 30°) using the included adapters. Once installed in any of the housings, the tweeter will pivot approximately 15° in any direction.
Note: Although the tweeters are shipped in their flush mount housings, no flush mount hardware is included. A method of holding the housings in place must be fabricated.

Crossover: The input and output wires are attached to the crossover. The 19" input wires are not terminated (bare wire). Both the woofer and tweeter output wires are 10" long and terminated with quick slides to easily attach to the drivers. The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.
