About the Focal Access 165 YE
A touch of gold
A touch of gold
This limited edition Access 165 YE component speaker system flaunts Focal's very best speaker tech. Focal employs their special 6-1/2" dual fiberglass sandwich woofer for hearty lows and rugged performance, with a phase plug to improve midrange accuracy. Mounted to a sturdy ABS basket with fiberglass reinforcement, this speaker reliably resists unwanted vibrations.
You'll find Focal's aluminum renowned inverted dome tweeters in play. The inverted dome tweeters act like little woofers, dispersing the highs in a wide pattern to create an exceptionally natural soundstage. Focal includes an option for surface-mounting the tweeters, or you can flush-mount them for a more discreet look in your car.
Focal uses their crossovers to effectively create open and natural imaging for your music, and they channel more power to your tweeters for improved high-range performance. The 165 YE crossover includes tweeter-level adjustments that let you create an ideal mix of the highs and lows for a dynamic stereo image in your car. High-quality components make for a smooth transition between the tweeter and woofer, eliminating "hot spots" and dropouts in your music.
Handles up to 70 watts RMS
This component system handles up to 70 watts RMS, so you can install an amplifier to enhance the dynamic range of the speakers, but you can also get good results driving this component system with your aftermarket receiver.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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.
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.
Basket: The woofer features an ABS basket reinforced with 20% fiberglass.
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 woofer a 6½". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6½" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6¾". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The TN43 tweeters have inverted aluminum domes, producing a broad sound stage. Each tweeter has a Neodymium magnet to provide a powerful magnetic field for the voice coil, while still maintaining 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 approximately 20° or approximately 40°. The top of the angle mount cup and the bottom of the flush mount cup can be combined to create another surface mount (non-angled).
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, 0 dB, or +3 dB.
Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 2nd order, 12 dB per octave low-pass and 3rd order, 18 dB per octave high-pass filters.
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
