Focal RCX-130

James from Houston, TX on 8/31/2019

1989 BMW 325I

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First impressions of the speakers.. very loud highs and very clear. These speakers went into a 1989 BMW 325i; four 5.25 all around. install was very easy. They were power by and old school Soundstream REF5.1000 5 channel amp making close to 100x4 with 270 going to the 5th channel. Head unit is the Pioneer DEH-S5120BT. After spending some time tuning the radio and amp, the speakers show great range. very sharp and clear highs; impressive midrange. The percussion offer a surprisingly good punch. The crossover on the head unit did the speakers justice. I don't often write reviews but DEFINITELY recommend the speakers for this price range. They perform well for full range speakers, whereas most speakers would need a sub for low end.. so far, the Focal rcx-130 were very enjoyable with out a subwoofer. This was my first experience with Focal; I was drawn to them because of their build quality but now I am a fan of their sound. GREAT value speakers.

Pros: highs mids range of sound for 5 1/4 speakers

Cons: none

Great Sound

Matthew from Prescott Valley, AZ on 8/22/2019

1985 BMW 318I

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great set of speakers that fit neatly in my kick panel. For a smaller speaker these really put out the sound. I recommend powering these with an amp, my new head unit won't pump enough power to drown out the road noise. One gripe I have is the e30 doesn't have enough space to install the speaker covers supplied with these speakers (they interfere with the hood latch and glove box). There just isn't enough room to have it all. So, I have to resort to using the factory covers instead.

Pros: Clear sound, high quality build

Cons: Mesh covers stuck out too far for my car

I have these speakers in my car and on my motorcycle.What impress's about these speakers is how well they reproduce sound.The bass is tight it doesn't drag on,the highs are clear and they don't have that ringing sound.And the sound stays together when you put the power to them.

Pros: Great product

Cons: None

Nice high-end speakers bring sound to minivan come to life

ReyC from Mountain View, CA on 2/26/2019

2006 Honda Odyssey

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These are really nice sounding speakers. The build quality using the materials chosen are really nice. Installation was a breeze for my 06 Odyssey Minivan. OEM speakers were 6.5 but Crutchfield recommend 5.25" for ease of installation to avoid any hiccups (it's still doable if you make sure the dimensions can fit within factory opening). I am sure that by adding an aftermarket amp, these puppies would spring to life, but driving them through my Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX head unit sounds ok for now.

Pros: Crystal clear highs and nice mids

Cons: Nice bass but can benefit more from an amp.

Sound is great but the grills that come with the speakers need a redesign as after mounting these to my Jeep TJ roll bar factory speaker locations they would not snap together. As I am sure some of this is due to the formation was changed as they were torqued down

Great compliment to a Subwoofer

Jeremy from Castle Rock, CO on 5/21/2018

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great speakers, Crisp Clear highs and Mids, Especially when paired with a speaker amp these were easy to install and finished out my system well. They are powered by the alpine 4 channel inline amp and compilment by two 10 JL W3 subs, The sound came out amazing. Thanks to Crutchfields Advisers I was well educated before I bought my speakers, and they even went above and beyond when I question about my install. Great Product and Crutchfield is a Great company to buy from with Quaility customer service.

Pros: Easy Install

Cons: No cons I knew what I was buying thanks to the education that the Crutchfield advisers.

Great subtle looks for my '87 Porsche 911

Ian from Ridgewood, NJ on 4/2/2018

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These sound quite good hooked up my old school Nakamichi 4 channel amp. They look quite good too because they're clean and simple. The plain black speakers (except the silver tweeters) and included grilles don't look out of place in my '87 Porsche 911. Too many aftermarket car audio products are designed to be flashy, but these are not, luckily. I marked these as 4 star rather than 5 because on one of the speakers, the sealing ring that goes around the woofer for under-mounting is a hard plastic and one fell of as I was installing them. I managed to reattach it with a little black RTV, but I shouldn't have to do this. Hopefully it will stay put.

Pros: Subtle and clean looks, good sound. They seem to have a reasonable amount of bass for their size, and are very clear.

Cons: Sealing ring around woofer could be a nicer material and stay attached better.

Very good sound

Ted from Phoenix, AZ on 8/27/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced existing speakers in my 8 year old Motorhome. OEM speakers lacked rich sound. I contacted Crutchfield for recommendations on speakers that my JVC V80bt could drive without an external amp. They recommended FOCAL. I was familiar with Focal as I had an under-seat Focal powered subwoofer in my car. I'm glad I chose FOCAL because the sound system in my motorhome has improved greatly

Pros: Well-built, great sound

Cons: expensive - for the class of speaker

James from Buchanan Dam, TX on 7/10/2017

2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Would be 5 stars if the speaker frame fit into the Roll Bar properly. 2006 Jeep Wrangler with Stock roll bar speaker/light pods. The speakers fit fine and line up with the existing holes but the top frame and subsequent Focal grills do not fit into the recessed area. Being that this jeep is 11 years old the factory grills would have worked had the plastic in the screw holes no disintegrated when I took them out. So using the focal frame they set outside the recessed area and people will just have to watch their heads when getting in and out of the jeep. I will try and find some grills that fit properly as I want the streamlined look....These just stick out too far. Had Crutchfield stated this, I would have went with different speakers. The frames and grills will not fit for the front dash either. Now for the sound, If you put these in a Jeep wrangler as I did, I put a pair in the front and a pair in the roll bar..These have a ton of BASS, you can probably get away without upgrading your subwoofer or even just disconnecting it if its old and brittle. I had already replaced my sub a few days before these arrived...and bought a Kicker Amp(it just arrived so not installed yet) for the new sub....I don't need it..way to much thump already..with the factory amp. As is...Alpine Head Unit, 2 pair(Front Dash and Roll Bar) Focal RCX-130s, Audiopipe 6.5 SVC sub, and I bridged the factory amp because the factory sub was Dual Voice Coil. It rocks even with the top doing 80

Pros: Sounds great, quick install with the adapter dash plates and pig tails for the factory wiring.

Cons: The speaker front frame and Grills do not fit in recessed holes of the Jeep Wrangler Roll Bar speaker mounts. So not as stream lined. Take care removing the factory grills and they will mount perfectly over these speakers and maintain that countersunk streamlined look...These are aftermarket with an aftermarket look (that's not a good thing to me)
