Access sound

Upgrading from factory speakers, you'll notice an astonishing improvement in your car's sound. Your music's midrange and midbass will gain presence and depth thanks to the articulate response of the light woven fiberglass woofer cone, the same used in Focal's premium Access speaker line.

Focal also puts their signature TN44 tweeter design to work here to give you sparkling highs. The shape of the TN44's aluminum inverted dome does a better job of dispersing high frequencies than a traditional raised dome tweeter, creating a very wide soundstage with fine resolution and exciting dynamics. An integrated crossover ensures a perfectly balanced sound.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

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.

    Good at First

    John from McLeansville, NC on 6/20/2019

    2012 Volkswagen Jetta

    Verified customer (What's this?)

    At first these speakers were amazing. Clear sound, easy enough installation, made to fit my car, etc. I had to get different speed clips because the speed clips that came with the speakers were a hassle to use, but with the right speed clips (120HWP0001 - Metra-HWP-0001) these were much easier to install. About 3 months after installing the speakers, one of them started having a static issue when playing mid-range notes. It will still play the notes, but they're fuzzy. I was enjoying the clarity of my music until the static issues started. I have JL Audio speakers for my rear doors that don't quite fit as well as these for my car and they were much more difficult to install, but they sound much better.

    Pros: Easy installation with the right speed clips Made to fit my car

    Cons: Speed clips that came with the speakers are pointless. Use the speed clips in the review. Started having static issues 3 months into ownership.

    Major sound upgrade

    JL from Texas on 4/5/2018

    2017 Volkswagen Jetta

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Couldn't ask for better speakers, however, they need to be shipped with factory rivets, the hardware that comes with them will not work unless cut into the lip inside the factory speaker hole, I recommend using as much hushmat as possible to avoid rattles.

    Pros: Exceptional sound, bass is much better than stock, overall easy install

    Cons: Needs to be shipped with factory rivets to avoid having to cut the inner lip out of door!

    Definite upgrade, ALMOST bolt in

    Nick from Seattle, WA on 2/19/2017

    2017 Volkswagen Jetta

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The focal 165vw speakers are a compatible replacement for both the front and rear doors for a 2017 Jetta se (without the fender system). They are "bolt in" except the speakers come with screws and clips that are useless. Instead you should use (not supplied) rivets to install the new speakers just like the factory ones were. Also the speakers are slightly thicker so they push against the door panel and create a buzzing noise (on both the front and rear door panels). This can be solved by removing the sticky foam tape around the speaker hole on the door panel, using a dremel to cut off the protruding part of the plastic ring and tabs that are underneath/adjacent to the foam, and then reinstalling the foam. This gives you the clearance you need without blemishing the door panel.

    Pros: Easy to install and the door panel/old speaker instructions were great. Manufacturer wiring connectors and bracket holes were spot on. These speakers will fit both the front and rear doors. (2017 Jetta SE)

    Cons: These speakers stick out just a bit more than the stock ones, requiring slight trimming of the interior door panel (you can't see it) to get the clearance you need. The screws and clips provided were useless. Use rivets.

    Plug and play. No custom work needed. [ Michael  Nov 13, 2016 ]

    Q
    Is this a direct fit into 2012 VW Jetta SE w/o Fender Audio but built in CD dash? Looking for no modification to the manufacturer wiring system as this will void my extended warranty.
