2-layer woofer cone and ABS basket
The 165 VB system features a 6-3/4" woofer with a Polyglass cone that's created by depositing a layer of hollow glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose with the incredible strength of glass, for a cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. The basket is made from a fiberglass/ABS mixture, providing a non-magnetic, non-resonant housing that won't color the sound. A butyl rubber surround helps control cone movement and promotes high power handling.

Aluminum/magnesium tweeter
Focal designed the aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to disperse high frequencies evenly for a big, open soundstage. The external 2-way crossover ensures a smooth transition from lows to highs, so vocals and instruments sound natural. You can select from 3 tweeter levels to get the right balance in your vehicle. Grilles are included.

Note: Focal describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

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 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 basket made of 20% fiberglass filled ABS.

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 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 tweeter can be surface or flush mounted using the included adapters. Focal recommends flush mounting, but the included angled cup allows surface mounting at one of two angles; approximately 10° and approximately 30°.

Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.274" 1.186"
Depth 0.688" (1.01" including screw) 0.527" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 2.054" 1.842"
Cutout Diameter 1.828" N/A

Crossover

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

Crossover Slopes: The low-pass crossover slope is 6 dB/octave and the high-pass crossover slope is 12 dB/octave. The crossover frequency for both is 4,500 Hz.

Wiring: The crossovers' woofer and tweeter outputs are hardwired; the 12" output wires have female quick slide terminals that plug into the terminals on the speakers. The inputs are also hardwired; the 12" input wires have no terminals.

Dimensions:

  • Width: 2.172"
  • Height: 1.107"
  • Depth: 4.325"
