About the Focal 25A4

The Access line offers a marriage of performance and affordability, allowing you to experience the best in sound with a guilt-free conscience.
Feel the bass
Bass gives your music fullness and texture. If you shortchange the bass, you're not hearing your music the way it's meant to be heard. This Focal Access Series 25A4 subwoofer uses an all-weather DFS (dual fiberglass structure) cone to deliver that depth of character you may be missing from your system. The cone's butyl rubber surround helps to ensure excellent strength, durability, and musical accuracy.
A unique ventilation system keeps the voice coil cool, allowing this sub to handle up to 200 watts RMS. Install this sub in a sealed box for tight, punchy bass, or in a ported enclosure for a little more boom.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 150 and 300 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Focal 25A4 reviews
Very good bass response but not overwhelming. The sub looks great. Very nice quality. My only wish is that I went with two instead of one.
Pros: Looks great cosmetically Sounds good with all music
Cons: Struggles just a hair with very low tones

Before anything, I'd like to disclose I like listening to music in moderate to moderately high volumes. I have one Focal 25A4 in a custom fit sealed enclosure (.71 cft) in the trunk of my 2015 Outlander Sport. I have a Rockford Fosgate R600x5 powering up my sub, JL Audio TR650-CXi on rear, and JL Audio TR650-CSi on the front. I like my system well-rounded -- nothing overpowering the other components. I tuned my sub by using an oscilloscope. Crossover point on the front and rear is at 100hz and 110hz for the bass. I kept my factory stereo, so I used the speaker level inputs. This sub sounds great along with the rest of the setup! Before the sub shipped, I received the speakers first. I installed the speakers and loved the improvement over the stocks. I thought that was good enough until I installed the bass. Wow! The sound stage expanded and sounded amazing. The sub adds a tight bass that I look for. I listen to rock, metal, electronica, hard dance and D&B. My car is an open cab to the trunk -- it helps the bass pass to the front more. Not sure if it lessens for sedans. This sub can handle louder volumes, as long as you tune it right. The recommended max RMS is only at 200W. It will not turn heads on the road, if that's what you're into. It will also not produce sounds 35hz and below. This sub is meant for those who wants to expand the sound stage of their car audio system. If you're going to use a sealed enclosure on this, check for major air leaks.
Pros: Adds a low soundstage. Inexpensive. Low power consumption.
Cons: Does not hit below 36hz. May not be loud enough for some.

Amazing sub, tight and accurate blends in nicely with the front comps (focal 165vb). It's installed in a sealed 0.70 enclosure hooked to a Zed Draconia III. I wanted great sq and that's exactly what I got. If you want a loud sub look somewhere else. If you want great sq and listen to your music at normal volume levels this sub is hard to beat; don't get me wrong it can get loud but you won't wake up the neighbours.
Pros: Great sq, very musical sub

I have the Focal Access 10" subwoofer in a sealed enclosure that's about .55ft^3. The enclosure is on the small side so it's stuffed with polyfill. The subwoofer is powered by 250 watts via an Alpine PDR amp. The how small the enclosure is, the sub performs very well. There is a slight lack of very low end sounds (below 50hz), but I'm sure in a ported box tuned correctly, I wouldn't be able to notice. The bass itself is sharp, accurate, and clean. The subwoofers excursion is more than I expected from such a small driver. If you're looking for a sub that can perform in a small enclosure with around 200w RMS, then I highly recommend the Focal Access 10". It may not be the loudest sub, but it certainly is of very clean quality and provides the extra punch to match up with other good speakers in the vehicle.
Pros: Small enclosure compatible, low power handling, very tight and accurate bass, good price for an SQ sub
Cons: Smaller sealed enclosure seems to lack a bit of low end extension,

Clean sound, higher end on the mid bass is lacking and low end is missing completely. With that being said it is in a sealed box with .80 cubic feet. Might perform better in a ported box. All in all a good sub for the money.
Pros: Clean natural sound
Cons: no low end bass

I have not even had the chance to tune the 2 subs I just purchased and I am blown away so far. These are hooked up to 500 w Alpine mono, 3/4 up and very satisfied with the subltle frequency response they provide. You get what you pay for and these provide a high end product at a very tolerable price range. I highly recommend if you listen to a variety of music and have an appreciation for the details in the mix of your favorite records / artists. I only gave 4 stars on build quaility because I just installed and have not broken them in.
Pros: Frequency response, clean, basic power needed.
Cons: Nothing as of yet.
