Overview

Our take on the Focal K2 Power 165KRX2

The K2 Power 165KRX2 6-1/2" component speaker system bears the hallmarks of Focal's "Power Hi-Fi" philosophy. Nimble woofers made from Aramid and glass fibers demonstrate the control needed to reproduce delicate classical passages, yet they'll handle the power needed to drive your bass-heavy music with authority. The sturdy zinc-aluminum alloy baskets are non-magnetic so they won't interfere with the speaker's own electronics. And this 2-ohm system extracts maximum power from your stereo or amp so you'll get a little more punch from your system.

Inverted dome tweeter design

Inverted dome tweeter design

Focal's 2" inverted dome tweeters act like little woofers, dispersing the highs in a wide pattern to create an exceptionally natural soundstage. K2 Power crossovers use hand-made components developed by Focal to deliver an ideal blend of the highs and lows for a dynamic stereo image. The 165KRX2's crossover features three levels of tweeter control, a tweeter "slope softening" selector, and two levels of midrange control so you can dial in the sound to your car's environment.

Important Note: These Focal K2 Power speakers use a low impedance design to pull more power safely from your car stereo or amplifier. This design is compatible with virtually all factory and aftermarket stereos.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Phenomenal Sound

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Absolutely amazing speakers. Contemplated buying these for a few weeks and I am so glad I finally pulled the plug and bought them. Installed them in my 2016 Chevy 2500. Paired them with a Rockford T600-4 and an Audio Control Lc7i. The sound is phenomenal and I am very pleased. After speaking with Focal directly, I decided to go ahead and push 150 watts at 2 ohms, as they recommended pushing a little over the rated RMS with gain controls lowered. My truck litteraly sounds like the concert is on my dash! Thank you crutchfield for another superior product.

Pros: Amazing mid bass and highs, great adjustability, and amazing attention to detail.

Cons: Didn't buy a second set for my rear speakers!

Upgrade over flax

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had the flax 2 way components for almost 2 years and they never sounded quite right to me. These krx2's have been an immediate improvement and they're still breaking in. The tweeters are not harsh but I put them to -6db's and that keeps everything sounding even not overly bright...Definitely recommend!!

Pros: Very detailed

Cons: None yet

Hi-hat cymbals, crash cymbals never sound so live, so natural

Chris from Westminster, CA on 4/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Amazing speakers! Still taken by the finesse of the highs (hi-hat cymbals, crash cymbals never sounds so live, so natural even at volume). What I hear reminds me of the mid's and high's encountered at high-end live venues like the old BB Kings Blues Club in Universal City. Even speed metal guitars and other instruments keep their characters at crazy volumes. Surely not impressed by my previous JL Audio C5 speakers, I've become deeply impressed with these Focals. The music re-exploration has just begun for me. Yes, I feel fortunate to hear music reproduced through these Focals. Highly recommended.

Pros: Deliciously good high's and mid's ...; super deal through Crutchfield

Cons: So far, nothing

I bought these for the rear deck lid on my camry. I put them in the rear only because I have the Focal ES 165KX2 in the front. That set cost too much. Again, not worth the money. you pay for the name. They sound great. They are overpriced. I'd say they should on sell them for half that price.

Pros: Great Sound

Cons: price isn't worth the sound.

Best speakers for car audio made regardless of price and these were on sale. Even focal lower price speakers are great. I'm a audio file and these speakers lived up to what I wanted. They will also last forever. The Crutchfield people are the Best very knowledgeable. I will not buy anywhere else. Thanks to Dexter and Allen

Pros: Very clean and clear like being there live. When played loud they are crystal clear.

Cons: None

FOCAL 165 KRX2

Isaac from Phoenix, AZ on 11/11/2016

2001 BMW 3 Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Buying experience: Amazing customer service and fast delivery. Not to mention the smoking price on the component set with the warranty. Focal 165 KRX2: Talk about detailed clarity with the tweeters and heart pounding midbass. FOCAL never disappoints in my book. You get what you pay for and I can assure you when you spend the money to get a pair of KRX2 or any other FOCAL components you get nothing short of studio quality sound. You will never have to replace these components due to lack of treble clarity or Midbass. The KRX2 can handle lots of RMS wattage but also it doesn't take much power at all for them to sound Amazing. I would highly recommend these components to any Bass Head or Audiophile and if you buy from Crutchfield buy with confidence.

Pros: Build Quality, Sound Quality, even packaging.

Cons: None if you understand the meaning of "You get what you pay for"

MattR from Southern California on 5/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When comes to component speakers, I have usually bought speakers in the $300 - $400 range. However, something seemed missing. I was skeptical if shelling out a ton of money on a set of Focal K2 Power 165KRX2 would make a noticeable difference. Let me tell you, it definitely did and I have not regrets with my purchase. These are definitely audiophile grade component speakers.... highly recommend.

Great speakers

Eddie from Vancleave, MS on 1/18/2015

I had the focal Polly glass, I sold them and got the krx2s. They do sound a lot different, more detailed, they are great sounding speakers. I only gave 4 stars because with some types of music they are very very bright! The bottom line is are they worth the extra 800 dollers compared to the Polly glass, imo absolutely not.

Cons:

dont overlook details

audiophile returns from NC on 6/28/2012

You are what you eat. Same thing goes for these speakers. They need excellent quality clean power. In other words, you need to make sure your getting a premium class A or AB. AB class will be a lot more affordable and readily available. Excellent A class amplifiers are around $2k+. Premium AB amps will directly effect what the speaker will give you. Going full range class D can end up with tinny and maybe brighter, harsher music. More unnatural in a sense and more artificial. Yes it will sound great at first, but as you keep listening, you will start to feel like your music is missing something, like its starting to lack some life. AB amps will give you a more truer & warmer sound. A better amp with cleaner and higher power will give you a heck of a lot more dynamics. I went from a Alpine PDX amp to a Mosconi, and it was a night and day difference. And seal and sound dampen those panels!! I'm not talking just a full dynamat, thats step one. You need that or equivalent, closed cell foam, and mass loaded vinyl. Sorta like Focals BAM sound dampener material. Its made of 3 layers. That is all. Now rock on my fellow audiophiles.

Perfection

audiophile from NC on 6/26/2011

Theres is not an accurate word to describe this speakers to their maximum. One things you'll notice off the bat, they are extremely accurate and clear. You'll will notice certain sounds you could never hear befor on the same tracks you've always listened to. Individual plucking of strings, the snap from the snare drum, the kicks from the percussions, the slightest slips of fingers on the strings, the artist taking a quick breath, even the brushing of cymbals come out extremely detailed. They are so acurate and so clean, you will be able to pick up where the audio masters made their mistakes. The woofer is pretty darn bassy and blends in perfectly with the tweeter. The tweeter is not overly exaggerated or too bright. It's sounds the way a true artist intended it to sound. They have a much broader response range than most tweeters out there and really shows in highly instrumental music. There is no listening fatigue. I'm am thoroughly impressed in all categories. If you thought other premium speakers of a lower class sound great, your ears will open up and grin when they hear these Focals. These components are truly a magnificent work of art.

Best Component Speakers Period

Doug from Pennsville, NJ on 11/1/2010

I have been an audiophile for about 15 years. I'm very picky with my ausio tastes and I am disappointed easily. I had done a lot of research on these speakers and read a lot of promising reviews. Bottom line: If you want the best nowadays, you need to go with Focal. However, I could only find the entry level Focal speakers on demo at dealerships. The dealers wouldn't let me listen to the entry level models because they said that "It wouldn't be any comparison". After much contemplation, I invested the money for these speakers. When I opened the box I noticed extraordinary quality. No plastic on the tweeters, and they weigh about a pound a piece. The midranges are works of art in themselves. They weigh about 4 pound each. When I finally got the time to install them (with JL HD600/4 amp and Kenwood Excelon 994 HU) I was completely satisfied. Crisp clear highs, not brassy. The mids were punchy and accurate. Vocals were clear and lifelike. I could even figure out lyrics better from rockers that slur or alter their voice. They just outperform my expectations all the time. I get excited tp listen to music again.Now, are these speakers worth the money? If they are still performing several years down the road like this, then absolutely. So buy these, and don't worry about buying anything else again..... unless you buy another set.

The best speakers I've ever owned!

ougrad1 from Dallas, TX on 10/30/2009

I recently replaced my car and bought a whole new system for my new car, choosing initially JL audio c5 components and c2 coax rears running off of an alpine w505 HU and an alpine PDX-5 5 channel amp. The JLs sounded too laid back as they were the first silk dome tweeters I've ever owned. I switched again to the Focal VRs and liked the forwardness of the mids but noticed that these speakers, due to their efficiency, with music with more detail, often muddied the sound too much. So finally I bit the bullet and bought these speakers after listening to them against the Focal VRs and some boston Pro 60s. These had the better detail and clarity in the highs without being too harsh that I was looking for. I've had them installed now for about 3 weeks and they seem to have just opened up after some tweaks with the gains...The sound is pure awesome. Like I mentioned, very detailed/articulate sound that is crisp and crystal clear that is more on the warm natural side...almost to the level of my home theater speakers by B&W. The mids are good but probably not as deep as the boston's but if you have a sub, that's not a big deal if you crossover correctly. Anyway, these speakers are phenomenal and have alot of flexibility with the passive crossover like a few additional switches Focal gives you in the crossover(extreme highend freq settings, -12 or -18 slope for tweeters). They are expensive but worth the money if you are an audiophile and value SQ.

The best speaker ever

Anonymous from Oklahoma on 6/30/2009

Well i bought these pair for a awsome price. I didn't expect it to sound soo diffrent from my Focal KF or my friends Focal KP. AN BOYYYY WAS I WRONG! These thing sounded completly diffrent. The tweeter that this baby comes with is sooo much smoother. You can hear the vocals, background music, and various other things so much clearer!!! These puppies are surely the latest an greatest Focals out there. So for the price thats a BArGIN!!!! You just gotta hear to beive the diffrence Focal makes from those other icky brands. Never going back to Boston , or JL,

Woofer

K2 Cone: The woofer cone is a sandwich composite consisting of a foam core, a structural glass fiber bottom layer, and a Kevlar top layer. This combination of materials results in a rigid, light weight cone with excellent damping characteristics.

Surround: 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 aluminum phase plug in the center of the woofer ensures a smooth, flat off-axis frequency response by preventing the high frequency sound waves emanating from one side of the cone from interfering with sound waves from the other side of the cone.

Zamak Basket: The woofer features a cast Zamak basket. Zamak is a rigid alloy of Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper. Zamak is non-magnetic.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1-9/16" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

Tweeter

Inverted Dome Tweeter: The TN53K tweeter is an Aramid fiber inverted 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. The dispersion is controlled by the twin radius wave guides to improve staging and directivity.

Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted. Focal recommends flush mounting and the flush mount cup is built onto the tweeter housing. The included angled cup allows surface mounting at approximately 30°.

Crossover

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.

Midrange Level: Set the midrange output to High or Flat to match their position in the car. When the mids are installed low in the door, some of the output is absorbed by the upholstery and they benefit from the High output setting.

Crossover Slopes: The crossover allows slope adjustment of both the low-pass and high-pass filters. The woofer can be run full range and use its natural mechanical roll off, or be crossed over with a 12 dB per octave slope. The tweeter can be crossed over with a 12 dB or 18 dB per octave slope. The crossover frequency for both is 4,700 Hz.

Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide.

2 questions already asked

The Alpine PDX series are very bright, Class-D amps, with a huge deficiency in the mids and vocals. D-Class amps really shouldn't be considered when using components as high end as the Focal KRX2. AB class amps are larger and run hotter, but they will sound far better with a set of high-end component. I experienced an identical issue with an Alpine PDX-5, and my sound improved tenfold, when I switched to a slightly older AB Class Alpine V12 series amp. The newer D class amps have probably improved some, but probably not enough to run with top grade components like these. I'd stick with a high-end AB class amp by Focal, JL, Audison, etc., for KRX2 components.[ DAVID  Oct 15, 2017 ]
