About the Focal P 20 FSE
Flax to the max
Flax to the max
If you've heard Focal speakers, then you know that their reputation for quality is well-deserved. Focal's designers never hesitate to think outside the box when it comes to speaker innovation. To create their Flax Evo Series speakers and subs, for example, they spent five years developing a super-lightweight, extra-rigid cone material made from a layer of flax fibers sandwiched between two layers of glass fibers. You get the warmth of natural fiber combined with the supreme accuracy of a more rigid cone material.
Small size, big sound
Built at Focal's workshop in France, the P 20 FSE 8" sub delivers performance beyond its size, using superior materials and construction to handle up to 200 watts RMS. At only 3" deep, its shallow-mount design allows it to fit in a compact sealed enclosure, so it's easier to fit in a smaller vehicle. If you're putting together a system, make sure to take a look at Focal's component speaker systems that feature the same "Flax Sandwich" cones.

Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich design, with a flax center between two glass layers. This combination of materials results in a neutral sound without coloration.
Surround: The rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.
Spring-Posts: The spring-post speaker terminals offer easy connection of single banana plugs or bare wire up to 10 gauge.
Rubber Gasket: The gasket/mounting-ring ensures better chassis damping and prevents air leakage. The rubber gasket is removable.
Enclosure: Focal recommends a sealed enclosure volume of 0.28 ft³ (examples are given from 0.21 ft³ to 0.32 ft³). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable for all types of music.
