About the Focal Performance PS 165V
A sound investment
A sound investment
Focal proudly manufactures the PS 165V system in France.
Someone else in your life might say you're splurging, but you know better. A sound upgrade is a reinvigorating investment in your car, and you'll find few brands more reliable than Focal. This PS 165V 6-3/4" component system delivers the goods with many of Focal's signature technologies working in harmony. The light but exceptionally rigid Polyglass woofer cone produces richly-textured bass and midrange frequencies without coloration. A responsive, sturdy butyl surround ensures long-lasting performance, while the woofer's phase plug enhances dispersion for excellent sound staging.
The PS 165V's aluminum tweeter sports Focal's inverted dome structure for wider dispersion and extended high-frequency response, giving you sparkling detail in the high notes. Three different mounting possibilities let you get creative with a custom installation and get hands-on with the stereo imaging in your car.
Each crossover network features 3-level tweeter control, and allows you to select three different crossover points. If space is an issue in your vehicle, Focal gives you the ability to split up the included crossover networks. You can mount a high-pass filter near each tweeter and a low-pass filter near each woofer, instead of having to mount one big crossover on each side of your vehicle. This system will handle up to 80 watts RMS, and you'll want to use an outboard amplifier to get the best possible performance from these speakers.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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 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.
Aluminum Basket: The woofer features a non-magnetic cast aluminum basket.
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.
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 Depth||0.542"||0.875" (screw depth)||0.3" (screw depth)|
Crossovers: Individual crossovers are included for each woofer and each tweeter. The crossovers can be mounted separately, docked in pairs, or all four crossovers docked together and mounted as one unit. The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals and will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide. Because the woofer and tweeter crossovers are separate, and have separate inputs, the system can be bi-amped. The woofer crossover point is 3.5 kHz, all the crossover slopes are 6 dB/octave, and the tweeter crossovers offer two adjustments:
- Tweeter Attenuation: set the tweeter output to -6dB, -3dB, or 0dB (no attenuation)
- Tweeter Crossover Point: the tweeter crossovers also offer three crossover point options; 4 kHz, 4.5 kHz, and 5 kHz
- Length: 4"
- Height: 1-1/4"
- Individual: 2"
- Pair: 4"
- All four: 8"
