Focal's top-of-the-line Utopia Be speakers exemplify Focal's dedication to musical perfection. The sound enthusiasts at Focal worked without constraints to develop what they consider to be the ultimate in speaker technology. Utopia Be subwoofers employ unique materials and unparalleled construction to add incomparable dynamics and natural sound to your system.

Focal's composite sandwich "W" cone features a layer of durable structural foam between two layers of precision-coated glass — the resulting membrane demonstrates exceptional agility, rigidity, and damping to produce realistic bass notes without distortion. A supple rubber surround maintains precise control over the cone, even during extreme excursion. A dense neodymium magnet, high-linearity voice coil, and zinc alloy basket give the sub rock-solid power and strength.

The compact Utopia Be 5" 13 WS subwoofer fits in places most other component subs can't, and you'll be impressed by its sound quality and bass impact. It handles up to 75 watts RMS and works best in small sealed enclosures. Utopia is defined as an "ideal place or state," and these hand-crafted Focal subs let you take your music to that level.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 55 and 110 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Awesome

Freddy from La vernia texas on 12/2/2017

I got a chance to listen to four of these lil french men and let me tell ya something....... WOW!!! Never have i heard such correct bass. If you were in band in middle school or high school u definatly know what im talking about. Very natural and upmost realistic soundwaves ive ever heard come out of a car audio subwoofer. That is now been changed to #1 on my christmas list. The wife dont know i kbow but she got me a set all wrapoed and ready. But im probably not gonna be ablf tk contain myself. You wong be dissapointed, 10 stars in its own category is what these deserve.

Pros: To many to list

Cons: None existant some will say orice to high. I say in this purchase the saying you get what you paid for is way of,theyre underpriced to be quite honest
