About the Focal Integration ISS 165

Audiophile-grade engineering

Focal applies the same technology they use in their studio and audiophile-grade home systems to their Integration line of car speakers. The Integration ISS 165 component system includes 6-3/4" woofers with cones made from Polyglass, a material that combines the warm sound of cellulose with the strength of glass, so they'll play accurately with no added resonances.

Focal ISS 130 5-1/4" 2 way Component Speakers

You can use this angled tweeter mount to improve high-frequency dispersion in problem vehicles.

Audiophile-grade engineering

Focal applies the same technology they use in their studio and audiophile-grade home systems to their Integration line of car speakers. The Integration ISS 165 component system includes 6-3/4" woofers with cones made from Polyglass, a material that combines the warm sound of cellulose with the strength of glass, so they'll play accurately with no added resonances.

Adjustable tweeter

Each separate Integration processed aluminum inverted dome tweeter features a built-in phase plug and wave guide, which act together to increase the power of high-frequency notes and improve the stereo soundstage. Focal includes a low-profile surface mount and an angled mount so you can set up the tweeter for the best possible imaging in your vehicle.

Built-in crossover networks

The crossover networks are built-in, so you don't have those extra boxes to install. Low-profile Integration speakers allow you to put Focal sound quality and construction into your vehicle, so you can enjoy a dramatic jump in performance over your old speakers. Grilles are not included; factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

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.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations

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

Product Research

Woofer
Tweeter

Woofer

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.

Surround: 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 high frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

Size Classification Note: Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6-3/4", while some manufacturers, including Focal, call it a 6-1/2". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Crossovers: The included 7" woofer wires have integrated crossovers. The woofer ends of the wires have female quick-slides that easily connect to the woofer terminals.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter has a Neodymium magnet to provide a powerful magnetic field for the voice coil, while still maintaining the tweeter's compact dimensions.

Mounting Options: The tweeters include two types of surface mount housings, one low profile and one angled:

  Flush Mount Low Profile Surface Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.3" 0.894" 1.933"
Mounting Depth 0.55" 0.875" (screw depth) 0.875" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 1.871" 1.88" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.67" N/A N/A
Width N/A N/A 1.895"
Surface Depth N/A N/A 2.839"

Crossovers: The included 19" tweeter wires have integrated crossovers. The tweeter ends of the wires have quick-slide terminals that easily connect to the wires soldered to the tweeters. The input end of each wire has three leads, a negative and two positives. The positive leads are labeled Car and Display, with a lower output level from the Car lead (useful because the placement of the woofer in a typical car installation requires the tweeter output be lowered to maintain a balanced sound).

Q
I'm looking at buying these but it doesn't seem that they have flush mount cups for the tweeters. Anyone got ideas on how to flush mount these seemingly cylindrical tweets?
[ Mikey  Sep 02, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
They come with the cone shaped and flush mounts
[ ryan  Sep 04, 2019 ]
A
The bullet shaped cylinders do not have to be used, I removed the grilles and mounted them behind the factory grilles. See the last picture with the description, similar to how I used it.
[ MICHAEL  Sep 02, 2019 ]
Q
How does the integration series compare with the auditor series?
[ Cris  May 30, 2019 ]

A
I don't really know. I have been fairly impressed with these though. Liked them enough to buy another set for my truck.
[ Brent  May 30, 2019 ]
A
I ended upgoing with the KX series but one of the crossovers blew and I think they discontinued this line due to issues. I just recently got the Utopia and they're pretty amazing!
[ Joshua  May 30, 2019 ]
Q
Can the integrated crossover be bypassed?
[ Jon  Apr 15, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
I'm not to sure, but i think if you just don't use them Your able to by pass. They come separate in the box.
[ Julio  Apr 15, 2019 ]
A
Yes, the crossovers are integrated into separate lengths of speaker wire for the tweeters and woofers
[ Cory  Apr 15, 2019 ]
A
Yeah, just don't hook it up. It is just a frequency blocker that plugs between the input and the connection on the speaker. You could leave it out if you wanted to, but I'm not sure why you would. You will likely experience e distortion at certain volumes that you would not experience when using it as intended.
[ JIM  Apr 15, 2019 ]
A
If I remember correctly it's part of the wiring so yes you can work around it. If you have tweeters already hooked up just use the wiring from those instead of the other speaker
[ ryan  Apr 15, 2019 ]
Q
Do these speakers fit a 2015 Ford Fiesta? It's says they fit the rear but doesn't list the front. Almost all of the other 6 3/4" components are listed as fitting the front.
[ Geoff  Jan 07, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
They will. The speakers are the same size front and back
[ ryan  Jan 08, 2019 ]
A
I'm sure they will. The tweeters of im guessing they have to find a way to mount it. I had to modify mine to fit.
[ Julio  Jan 07, 2019 ]
Q
What's the difference between the focal iss-165 and the focal rse-165?
[ Jeffery  Oct 17, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.
[ Krissy  Oct 22, 2018 ]  Staff

ISS is polyglass woofer. I don't think RSE is. RSE uses something called a phase plug for sound direction. The RSE has external crossovers. The ISS has built in crossover tech that works with online base blockers so you don't have to mount crossovers somewhere. I could be wrong, but I think the ISS is a little better made. People seem to champion the polyglass.
[ JIM  Oct 17, 2018 ]
Q
TO THE CIVIC WHO UP LOADED IMAGE HOW DID YOU GET TWEETER TO FIT JUST PRESS FIT OR TRIM A LITTLE? IT LOOKS AMAZING ALSO IF BOTH TWEETER AND WOOFER HAVE SEPARATE WIRES WITH CROSSOVERS HOW DO YOU WIRE BOTH TO A SINGLE CONNECTION TO STOCK ADAPTER?

Q
Will these speakers sound decent without an aftermarket amp?
[ Dan  Feb 25, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
But to better answer your question. Yes. they are very sensitive speakers. i have JL 2 ways in the back door, and my amp is set half way up for them. These however are at the lowest gain setting on my amp. So, i tune the other speakers around them. Wouldn't take much to make these sing. everyone who has heard them in my XB has been amazed. best purchase I've made so far. Good luck. Have fun!
[ JAMES R  Feb 28, 2018 ]
A
wouldn't know. Pushing 75 watts per, and couldn't be happier. Even better than my old Boston's.
[ JAMES R  Feb 28, 2018 ]
A
Depends on the head unit, but I would guess these sound way better than most stock door speakers.
[ Justin  Feb 28, 2018 ]
A
Depends. There are a few factors if you're using the stock radio or after market, if the vehicle has a built in amp. I'm going to assume you're putting in or have put in a head unit. They will sound decent in fact much better but like with all new speakers they need to be conditioned or broken in. Don't blast them right away. Let the voice coil settle on medium to low volume, this will also slowly flex the poly ring too. You'll be happy
[ Jason  Feb 28, 2018 ]
A
Absolutely, but who's in this game to be "decent"?
[ John  Feb 28, 2018 ]
Q
These have inline crossovers. What gauge speaker wire do they use?
[ Micah  Nov 27, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
Yes. there are inline crossovers. They are tube like, small, and they do a really good job. These are a steal at this price.
[ JAMES R  Feb 28, 2018 ]
A
Most likely 18 gauge, don't think it's 16....
[ MICHAEL  Nov 28, 2017 ]
A
Pretty sure it's 16 if I remember correctly.
[ Justin  Nov 27, 2017 ]
Q
I am looking for replacement speakers for my 2015 Ford Edge with Sony 12 speaker system. Will these speakers perform well connected to a factory amp? The existing speakers in the doors are labelled 4 Ohm and 25 Watts.
[ billvalley31  Mar 30, 2016 ]

A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. We haven't done any research on your particular vehicle but an advisor will be able to help you determine the best fit for your budget and your needs.
[ Kenny  Mar 30, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
I see these are labeled 6 3/4 but will they fit the speaker pods within the dash of a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Says doesn't fit, but I'm pretty sure 6.5's fit in the front and even in the sound bar of a 2015 Jeep Wrangler?
[ Terry  Nov 03, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
