Our take on the Focal Access 30 A1 DB by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
Focal Access subs emphasize faithful delivery of your music's fundamental frequencies. They feature all-weather woven glass-fiber cones with butyl rubber surrounds for outstanding strength, durability, and musical accuracy. Tough 4-layer voice coils with self-regulated cooling ensure reliable power handling.
The Access 30 A1 DB 12" sub handles up to 250 watts RMS, and features a massive magnet for powerful, reliable output. Focal designs this DVC sub to work best in sealed enclosures for tight, spot-on bass response that brings out the full impact of your music's low end. The dual 4-ohm voice coils let you get maximum power from your mono amplifier, or build a multi-sub setup. The included gasket provides a clean look to your installation and eliminates air leaks from your enclosure which can lead to unwanted distortion.
Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most 2-channel car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation. Most mono amps are stable down to 2 ohms.
