About the Focal Integration IS 165VW
The woofer's slim profile makes it a direct fit for select Volkswagen vehicles
If you've been intimidated by the thought of putting aftermarket speakers in your Volkswagen, we've got good news — Focal has taken most of the hassle out of installation. The IS 165VW component system is a direct fit for your front factory speaker locations in select Volkswagen Golf 6 and Jetta models and for rear locations in others. They plug right in to your VW's original connectors. Focal includes almost everything you need for a quick, easy installation.
Innovative Focal 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 TN44's aluminum inverted dome shape 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. These tweeters fit in the factory spaces with minimal adaptation, and integrated crossovers ensure a perfectly balanced sound.
Installation Note: some gluing may be required to install the tweeters.
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.

Woofer: The light, rigid woven fiberglass woofer cone is humidity resistant. The Butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The inverted dome aluminum tweeters produce a broad sound stage. The IS 165VW tweeters are designed to be glued into the factory tweeter housings.
Wiring: The VW factory wiring harness plugs directly into the woofer speaker frame. The wire attached to the tweeter is terminated with the VW factory plug, so it connects directly to the factory wiring.
