About the Focal FLAX Universal 8
Focal's gained a worldwide reputation for innovative speaker design and state-of-the-art materials, and now they've brought their expertise to ready-to-install subwoofer enclosures made to bring the best out of their subs, and out of your music. Their FLAX Universal 8 sub enclosure gives you a 8" sub in a specially-designed box that delivers the big bass you're looking for.
Advanced speaker design
The package features Focal's Performance Sub P 20F 8" subwoofer. Its advanced design features a flax fiber/glass fiber laminate cone that gives you the warmth of natural fiber and the superior accuracy of glass for solid bass with minimal distortion. Handling up to 250 watts RMS, the P 20F sub is ideal for bigger bass in smaller spaces. The speaker's 4-ohm impedance works with most amplifiers, and its post-style wiring connectors make wiring simple.
A box that sends you
The FLAX Universal 8's enclosure is custom-made to bring out the best in the sub. Its ported design enhances low-frequency response so you get powerful low notes as well as clarity throughout the sub's range. The box is solidly built of industry-standard MDF with black carpet covering for protection and a leatherette insert with the Focal logo for extra style points. The enclosure is filled with Blackhole's Stuff, a 100% cotton sound-deadening material that reduces unwanted resonance to keep your low end clean.
When you're ready for great bass that can go to extremes, the FLAX Universal 8 delivers.

Overview: The Focal Universal 8 features an 8" P20F subwoofer mounted in a compact ported enclosure designed to take up minimal vehicle space. The single 4 ohm subwoofer can handle up to 250 watts RMS (500W peak), providing deep clean bass for any size vehicle.
Driver: The included P20F 8" driver features Focal's patented Flax technology incorporated into the cone design. With a hollow fiber structure, flax is twice as light as fiberglass while providing low elasticity and high rigidity. A "dual-magnet" design and fiberglass voice-coil material help reduce overheating while providing high excursion, resulting in deep controlled bass.
Enclosure: The Focal Universal 8 subwoofer's ported enclosure is constructed of rigid MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) for low resonance, and is lined with Blackhole Stuff damping material. This 100% cotton material provides superior damping over conventional enclosure materials such as polyester or fiberglass. The enclosure's port is tuned at 32Hz (a 25Hz subsonic filter is recommended), allowing for a frequency response down to 28Hz. The enclosure is protected from dings and scratches with an attractive black carpet covering and includes a black leatherette insert with the Focal logo in red.
Terminals: A terminal-cup on the side of the enclosure houses two threaded binding-posts with knurled tensioning-nuts. Each terminal-post can accommodate bare speaker wire up to 12 AWG or banana-connectors.
