About the Focal Performance PS 165F

The right material for the right sound

Focal continuously searches for materials that allow them to produce some of the most accurate speakers in the world. This time, Focal found that flax fibers help create a very rigid, lightweight cone for their speakers. With half the weight of fiberglass, the hollow flax fibers are woven and sandwiched between thin glass membranes. Mounted to a sturdy aluminum basket, this lively and accurate speaker resists unwanted vibrations.

A detailed soundstage

Focal's Expert Series PS 165F component speaker system combines these innovative flax 6-1/2" woofers with their renowned inverted dome tweeters and versatile crossovers. The inverted dome tweeters act like little woofers, dispersing the highs in a wide pattern to create an exceptionally natural soundstage. Focal includes an option for surface-mounting the tweeters, or you can flush-mount them for a more discreet look in your car.

Distributing the frequencies

Focal uses their crossovers to effectively create open and natural imaging for your music. The PS 165F crossovers include tweeter level adjustments that let you create an ideal mix of the highs and lows for a dynamic stereo image in your car. High-quality components make for a smooth transition between the tweeter and woofer, eliminating "hot spots" and dropouts in your music. This component system handles up to 70 watts RMS, so you can install an amplifier to enhance the dynamic range of the speakers.

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

Product Research

Woofer
Tweeter
Crossover
Dimensions

Woofer

Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich design, with a 0.4mm flax center between two 0.04mm glass layers. This combination of materials results in a neutral sound without coloration.

Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Aluminum Basket: The cast aluminum basket is rigid and non-magnetic.

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

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Focal, call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted Aluminum/Magnesium dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter uses a durable poron suspension.

Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted using the included adapters. Focal recommends flush mounting, but the included angled cup allows surface mounting at approximately 30°.

Crossover

Tweeter Level: You can adjust the output level of the tweeter on the crossover to -3 dB or 0 dB (flat).

Wiring: The input and output wires are attached to the crossover. The 12" input wires are not terminated (bare wire). Both the woofer and tweeter output wires are also 12" long; the woofer output is terminated with quick slides to easily attach to the woofer and the tweeter output is not terminated (bare wire).

Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 2nd order, 12 dB per octave low-pass and high-pass filters. The crossover point for both is 4.2 kHz.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your system 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 between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
