About the Focal RSB-250
Focal has built a reputation for building great speakers for home, car, or recording studio, and our customers definitely give their subs high marks. Their Auditor Series RSB-250 10" subwoofer delivers impressive bass, maintaining accuracy even when you're pushing your system hard. The sub's two voice coils allow you to wire it for 2- or 8-ohm impedance, giving you more flexibility when you expand your bass setup.
Built to take it
The RSB-250 features a polypropylene cone with a butyl rubber surround that's made to handle up to 250 watts RMS. Large vents in the sub's steel basket help dissipate the heat generated by extended bass sessions. This Focal fits into just about any kind of system, whether you prefer tight bass from a sealed box or fatter bass from a ported enclosure.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Focal RSB-250 reviews
Very responsive subs for rock music and similar sounding tunes. Not the deepest hitting subs but good for what I wanted.
Pros: Good response
Cons: Not the best for low hz

Best entry level sub you can get. Sounds great, not too much not too little, just blends perfectly with my whole system

I have been a fan of JL for many many years. I just did a full system overhaul in my 06' Subaru Legacy GT Wagon, and ended up running the Kenwood Excelon X-801-5 channel amp for the power. Since it's got a dedicated mono sub channel that will do 500w rms at 2 ohms, I decided to go with this dual voice coil Focal over the JL10W0V3. I never A/B tested the two, but I am more than happy with this sub. It handles many different genres with ease. I have it in a sealed box and the bass is plenty tight for jazz, rock, ect, but beats hard for dance music and hip hop. Go for it!
