Upgrade with Focal quality
You're ready: to do away with unbearable factory sound and to gain a totally authentic experience listening to music in the car. With Focal's Universal Integration Series speakers installed in your car, a new era has begun — one in which it's easy to enjoy every moment of your drive. Focal provides such a dramatic boost in sound quality by applying much of the same technology in these car speakers that they use in their studio and audiophile-grade home systems.
Superior materials and design
Focal's ISU 200 component speaker system employs a polyglass 8" woofer cone to give you a warm, natural sound with enhanced strength for accurate playback with no added resonances. An aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter, backed by an in-line crossover, delivers astonishing detail in the high range and integrates an acoustic horn design for an improved soundstage across your dash. Focal also gives you two mounting options for a smoother installation.
Planning to drive these speakers off a head unit? No problem. They're designed to take advantage of every bit of power supplied to give you the best audio quality possible. However, Focal's famous sound soars when powered by an aftermarket amp!

Focal ISU 200 reviews
Just did a "full bosectomy" and installed them in Miata along with an Alpine KTP-445U amp. They sound fantastic. After six years of mediocre sound from my supposedly premium Bose system I finally have excellence. The bass on these is great. Unless you want to shake the streets, a subwoofer is totally unnecessary. For 2009-2015 Miatas with Bose, you must replace the amp if you replace the speakers. The crossover is in the Bose amp so there's no way to drive these correctly with the original amp.
Pros: They fite in the shallow space available. The sound fantastic. Bass is excellent so that a subwoofer really isn't needed.
Cons: None except they're rather expensive and note the caveat above in my review about 2009-2015 Miatas with Bose.

Speaker sound Phenomenal! Outstanding full range coverage that is clearly noticeable compared to other speakers.
Pros: Awesome full range
Cons: Weak visual IFU, it's an opportunity for improvement.

These component kits are especially designed for bass heads on a beer budget. The 8" drivers aren't subwoofers but they'll satisfy the bass needs of most folks especially those who can't or don't want to surrender valued trunk space for a sub box and any related electronics associated with the install. For the budget-challenged take note of this kit's high efficiency which means you could theoretically drive these off a decent high power head unit though I'm sure they'll sound even better driven by a decent outboard amplifier. I have mine driven by the rear channels of an Alpine 100.4 amplifier. The tweeters aren't much but then you don't buy a kit such as this primarily for the tweeters. If possible I'd suggest installing the mid bass drivers in combination with better tweeters of you own choice. I'd recommend a tweeter capable of response at least as low as 3 kHz cut off @ -12 dB/octave HP. Were it not for the tweeters I'd give this kit a five star rating as great performance/value for money spent.
Pros: Easy install provided you have the space on your front or rear car or truck doors, Great value for quality sound especially in deep mid bass sonic spectrum versus money spent. If you use a fourth order electronic crossover--- -24 dB/octave HP---you can reliably and LOUDLY play these down to 60 Hz with no detectable distortion. At this price point that's amazing performance.
Cons: Very average tweeters. Do yourself a favor and install your own choice of tweeters.

I just replaced this in my 2006 Miata MX-7 Touring that originally had the Bose speakers. All I can say is WOW. These went in very easy, and I had them fully replaced in about an hour. I used straps on the upper tweeters since they are smaller than the originals. The lowers fit right in after trimming two tiny tabs on each housing from the original. A small saw was all I needed. If you don't have the Bose model Miata, you will have to trim a bit more, but no biggie as it is easily done with a Dremel. Outstanding clarity on the highs and such on the lows over the originals (granted they were 12 years old, but still kicked). Highly recommended!
Pros: Much better than factory Bose speakers.
Cons: Tweeters needed to be strapped in to original panel, but easily done.

Replaced the factory 5x7's in my 2007 MX5 with these 8" components. Wow! Properly Dynamat'd the door and coupled these to a UTE-62BT Alpine with their 45x4 power pack. The bass and mid-bass is outstanding and with an 8" woofer in each door, most should be happy w/o a sub.

My Porsche cayman was missing Bass, with the standard woofers, but the Focal ISU 200 solved the problem, These speakers are awesome they inmmediatelely brought a strong bass . I just prepared a speaker adapter for the installation and the rest was a piece of cake .

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.
Woofer 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.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum and magnesium 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.
Note: When flush mounted, the tweeters are pressure fit into the opening, with nothing holding them from behind, so the cutout diameter is very important.
Mounting Options: The tweeters include flush mount and angled surface mount housings:
|Flush Mount||Angled Surface Mount|
|Mounting Depth||0.658"||0.875" (screw depth)|
Tweeter Crossovers: The included 18" 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).
