Focal Access 165A1 SG
6-3/4" component speaker system
Our take on the Focal Access 165A1 SG by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Here's some good news for car audio fans. Focal's Access speakers have earned a reputation for delivering clear, natural sound that's unsurpassed in their price class. Now, Focal has actually lowered their prices on the latest editions of these remarkable speakers, so here's your chance to experience these components for yourself. Focal inspects and tests every Access speaker to ensure that each one lives up to their high quality standards.
The Access 165A1 SG component speaker system features a 6-3/4" woofer with a stiff, woven glass-fiber cone for precise bass and midrange reproduction. The strong, lightweight ABS frame offers plenty of open space for unimpeded cone movement, along with plenty of venting to cool the voice coils.
Unique inverted dome tweeter
Focal's patented inverted-dome tweeter acts like a miniature woofer cone, dispersing high frequencies evenly with fine resolution and exciting dynamics. You can install the tweeters with the included flush-mount hardware, or use the included dual-angled pod for surface mounting. Either way, you'll enjoy the superior stereo imaging of these well-designed tweeters.
Crossover network with tweeter level control
High-quality components in the external crossover ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for an extremely natural sound. You'll also appreciate a 3-position tweeter level adjustment that allows you to customize your sound even further.
Note: Focal describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.
Incrediable sound balance outta these components. The tweeters aren't too bright and the sound stage sounds amazing for the price. Thinking seriously about buying a second pair and a set of kick panels for my 2003 Silverado. Pushing them with a Rockford 300x4 and its perfect.

Material: The light, rigid braided glass fiber woofer cone is humidity resistant. The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.
Phase Plug: The bullet-shaped phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the higher frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.
Basket: The woofer features a basket made of 20% glass fiber filled ABS.
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum and dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter has a Neodymium magnet to provide a powerful magnetic field for the voice coil, while still maintaining the tweeter's compact dimensions.
Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted using the included adapters. Focal recommends flush mounting, but the included angled cup allows surface mounting at approximately 15° or approximately 30°. The top of the angle mount cup and the bottom of the flush mount cup can be combined to create another surface mount (non-angled).
Components: Focal uses audiophile grade polypropylene capacitors and air core inductors to ensure high definition and a dynamic sound quality.
Tweeter Level: You can adjust the output level of the tweeter on the crossover to -6 dB, -3 dB, or 0 dB.
Crossover Slopes: The crossover uses 2nd order, 12 dB per octave low-pass and high-pass filters. The crossover frequency for both is 4,800 Hz.
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
