Built to last

A polypropylene woofer cone and butyl rubber surround ensure these speakers will live a long life in your car doors, withstanding all kinds of environmental abuse while delivering robust sound. Focal built these speakers with an extra-large voice coil and a powerful magnet so they can handle an honest 60 watts RMS. Handsome mesh grilles are also included in case you're planning on a custom installation.

Product Research

Features

Woofer: The polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround are resistant to the temperature extremes and humidity often found in the automotive environment, adding to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Tweeter: Each speaker features a 20mm inverted dome Mylar tweeter for crisp highs.

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 enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Customer Q&A

6 questions already asked

Q
I installed these on the rear deck of my 2019 Honda Accord sport. We had issues with fit due to diameter of the factory hole and the the rear metal support of the speaker. This caused issues the top cover of the rear deck being secured correctly. Has anyone else had this issue and if so, how did you correct this issue?

These speakers should fit with the mounting bracket we sent once you remove the inner tabs on it like Kenneth mentioned. If you have done that and are still encountering issues completing the install, I recommend contacting our technical support for troubleshooting help. We send their direct dial phone number on the order invoice.

No issues for me
[ Maximilan  Nov 05, 2020 ]

Are you using a mount/adapter with your install? If so, are you making sure to mount it on top instead of below the mount? I don't have an accord, but in my install I had to modify the speaker mount/adapter so that the speaker mounted on top of it (had to remove the inner tabs). That gave me the extra depth I needed.

Q
Does this fit 5.5 inch cutout?
[ Johnathan  Mar 30, 2020 ]

Hi Johnathan, thank you for your question. The Focal RCX-165 have a cutout diameter of 5 5/8". To check vehicle fitment, you may use our vehicle fit finder online, or chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We will be happy to help.
[ Jess  Apr 20, 2020 ]  Staff

I'm pretty certain the Focal will not fit a 5.5" cutout. They are for 6.5" opening, which is what my install called for. MB

Q
Do these speakers need an amp or will they get enough power from an aftermarket head unit?
[ Conor  Apr 30, 2019 ]

A
I installed these speakers for my daughter's 2007 Honda CRV with the OEM head unit. They work fine with the OEM receiver.
[ Praseth  May 10, 2019 ]
A
I really like mine. I just added to a factory head unit. It made a huge difference right out of the box. I did change all 4 though.
[ BENNY C  May 09, 2019 ]
A
In my 2016 Tacoma they get enough power and sound great. The amp will only improve that. I plan on adding an amp to mine soon in addition.
[ Shawn  May 08, 2019 ]
A
No amp needed. They're rated at only 60 watts anyway. You should be good with aftermarket radio. I'm using a 45 watt amp with factory head unit and I'm happy.
[ William Keith  May 08, 2019 ]
A
I'm using them with a Pioneer head unit that outputs 14 watts RMS/50 peak x 4 channels and they sound great.
[ Joseph  May 08, 2019 ]
A
They definitely need an amp.
[ Chris  May 08, 2019 ]
A
I went with a deck that is basically an amp the Sony mex100bt I believe. They run 50rms. They're alright, but are overshadowed by the componets in front and one sub in trunk. Overall, I'm not impressed. I would definently run an amp if you can.
[ Adam  May 08, 2019 ]
A
They do not require an amp. They sound pretty good without one, but if you are looking for a ton of sound out of them, you're likely going to need an amp. That said, I don't have an amp and I have four of these; I'm happy with their performance.
[ Matthew  May 08, 2019 ]
Q
What amp am i wanting to use to get the best performance out of these speakers?
[ Mark  Oct 19, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp 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.
