About the Focal Performance PS 165V1

You're worth it

A sound upgrade is a reinvigorating investment in your car, and you'll find few brands more reliable than Focal. Their PS 165V1 6-1/2" component system uses many of Focal's famous technologies working in harmony to deliver the sonic goods. The light but exceptionally rigid Polyglass woofer cone produces richly-textured bass and midrange frequencies, and the woofer's non-resonant aluminum chassis virtually eliminates coloration. A sturdy butyl surround ensures long-lasting performance, while the woofer's phase plug enhances dispersion for excellent sound staging.

The aluminum basket offers a rock-solid platform, eliminating resonances that can color your bass.

Versatile highs

The PS 165V1'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 without any of the blare often found in metal tweeters. Three different mounting possibilities let you get creative with a custom installation and get hands-on with the stereo imaging in your car.

A thoughtful installation

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.

Product Research

Woofer
Tweeter
Crossover

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.

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.

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" 0.903" 1.955"
Mounting Depth 0.5" 0.875" (screw depth) 0.3" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 1.905" 1.905" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.672" N/A N/A
Width N/A 1.905" 1.905"
Surface Depth N/A 1.905" 2.888"

Crossover

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

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4"
  • Height: 1-1/4"
  • Width:
    • Individual: 2"
    • Pair: 4"
    • All four: 8"

focal speakers are just the best. you can actually hear the music comes alive on this speakers specially when paired with a good amp. clean, crisp and precise. some higher end models are a bit pricey but the sound is 2nd to none. these are beautifully crafted speakers. [ teddy  Jul 26, 2016 ]

Q
Can someone recommend a capacitor size to use to protect tweeters in an active setup?
[ Dilated18  Jun 10, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Typically we would recommend a 5000hz capacitor to protect a tweeter from low frequencies. Depending on your speaker and amp this might be a good starting point https://bit.ly/2KmVM5n You can also connect with one of our friendly product advisors for personalized advice here: https://bit.ly/2QNxGQB
[ Cosmo  Jun 19, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Do these require 4 channels on an amp? Why are there 4 crossovers included?
[ Konstantinos  Feb 19, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
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. You can power them with just 2 channels of amplification but they also support bi-amping (4 channels). You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the speaker's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table.

Q
Why the serial number didnt appear on the 3rd picture?
[ MOHD  Feb 15, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The serial number is on the woofer at the edge near the chassis , part number first followed buy the serial number, great speakers but I trade up to the flax series, and there simply the best ! I wouldn't hesitate to buy either set
[ LAWRENCE  Feb 16, 2019 ]
Q
Is the RMS for 80 or 40 watts per speaker?
[ Lawrence  Jul 01, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
80 watts per channel. So, each midrange/tweeter will handle up to 80 watts combined.
[ Ryan  Jul 06, 2018 ]  Staff
