Focal Performance P165V33
3-way 6-3/4" component speaker system
Our take on the Focal Performance P165V33 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Focal's made a strong impression on American car audio fans in the last couple of years. Their 3-way Performance Series P165V33 component speaker system continues this trend, using precision craftmanship and advanced materials to deliver superior performance. The system includes two 6-3/4" woofers, two 4" midrange drivers, two 1-3/4" tweeters, two external crossover networks, and assorted hardware.
2-layer woofer cone
The system's 6-3/4" woofer features a Polyglass cone that's created by depositing a layer of hollow glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose with the incredible strength of glass, for a cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps control cone movement and promotes high power handling. The zamak (zinc alloy) basket provides a non-magnetic, non-resonant housing that won't color the sound.
Unique tweeter design
Focal designed the 1-3/4" aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to disperse high frequencies evenly for a big, open soundstage. The external 3-way crossover ensures a smooth transition from lows to mids to highs, so vocals and instruments sound natural. You can select from 3 tweeter levels to get the right balance in your vehicle.
4" midrange speaker
The shallow-mount 4" midrange driver, identical in construction to the woofer, adds focus and detail. Mount the midrange and tweeter as close to ear level as possible in your vehicle, and enjoy the powerful soundstage created by these precision speakers.
Note: This component speaker set consists of a separate woofer, midrange speaker, and tweeter. Our Car Selector checks to make sure the woofer will fit in your factory location. You'll have to custom install the midrange and tweeter.
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.
Very satisfied, This is my first Focal purchase and they exceeded my expectations. These speakers sound great and as always the customer service form Crutchfield is top notch. I will look for more Focal prducts in the future.

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.
Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity, adding to the speaker's reliability and longevity.
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" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Polyglass Cone: Like the woofers, the midrange drivers use Polyglass cones with butyl rubber surrounds.
Zamak Basket: The midrange drivers also feature a cast Zamak basket.
Size: The 4" midrange drivers will fit many factory 4" speaker locations. They can be top or bottom mounted and have these dimensions:
- Depth (top mount): 1.572"
- Mounting height: 0.273"
- Flange height: 0.181"
- Depth (bottom mount): 1.753
- Tweeter protrusion: 0.092"
- Cutout diameter: 3.682"
- Frame diameter: 4.02"
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The 1-3/4" tweeter is an inverted aluminum 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. The included angled cup allows surface mounting at one of two angles; approximately 10° and approximately 30°.
|Flush Mount||10° Surface Mount||30° Surface Mount|
|Depth||0.962"||0.552" (screw depth)||0.552" (screw depth)|
Components: Focal uses audiophile grade polypropylene capacitors and solid 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/octave) low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass filters. The crossover points are 400 Hz and 4,000 Hz.
Wiring: The inputs and outputs are screw terminals; they will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
- Width: 3.335"
- Height: 1.577"
- Depth: 5.088"
