Overview

Our take on the Focal Performance Sub P 30F

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 Performance 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.

Impressive performance

Focal's Performance Sub P 30F 12" sub delivers pristine performance, using its 2" voice coil and double magnets to handle up to 400 watts RMS. It works equally well in sealed or ported enclosures, so it's a great candidate for big bass in a variety of applications. If you're putting together a system, make sure to take a look at the Focal component speaker systems that feature the same "Flax Sandwich" cones.

Whoa...

Crutchfield customer from Saint Charles, MO on 4/3/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

4x the cost of a 12" sub, 8x the performance

Pros: Flax cone stands out and provides a draw every time I open the trunk. Similar to the components, the brand offers sounds you wouldn't hear in your average sub, because it carries a high level of accuracy and precision.

Cons: None.

Product Research

Features

Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich design, with a 0.6mm flax center between two 0.2mm 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.

Sealed Box Volume: Focal recommends a sealed enclosure with a volume between 28 liters (0.99 ft³) and 40 liters (1.41 ft³).

Ported Box Volume: Focal recommends a ported enclosure with a volume between 40 liters (1.41 ft³) and 60 liters (2.12 ft³) using a single port tube 3.16" diameter x 13.78" long.
