Overview

Our take on the Focal TiS 1.5

Focal's TiS 1.5 tweeters use the same inverted dome design developed for their fantastic component speaker systems, delivering a rich and smooth high-frequency upgrade to your car's audio system. Paired with built-in crossovers, these stiff aluminum tweeters provide a naturally detailed sound to improve the soundstage in your vehicle. If you're not looking to change your entire speaker array, these TiS 1.5 tweeters are a great way to open up the sound and add some high-frequency excitement.

Mount them your way

You can surface- or flush-mount the speakers in your car with the included hardware. For the surface-mount option, Focal included both low-profile and angled tweeter housings depending on the shape of your dash or doors. In some cases, these tweeters may fit in the factory tweeter locations, so check the "Details" section for detailed dimensions.

Installation note: Installing tweeters can require modifications to your vehicle. These Focal tweeters are pressure-fit to the surface- and flush-mount housings, so the cutout diameter dimension is very important.

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

Product Highlights:

  • 1-1/2" aluminum inverted dome tweeters (pair)
  • flush- and surface-mount hardware included
  • built-in high-pass filters included (6 dB/octave)
  • power handling: 2-15 watts RMS (50 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 6,000-20,000 Hz
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • flush-mount depth: 9/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

For this price point these little beauties just elevated my system to actual enjoyability. I have a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback and the original dash mounted tweeters are made of cheap Mylar. In two words, they suck. Enter Focal 1.5 tweeters and happiness ensues. Thanks for a great product.

These came with the focal iss 570 components i bought from Crutchfield. I connected them to my clarion 2510 amp and they worked for a little while and stopped working. Suspect they are blown. But speakers are fine.

Just installed these in my Mustang and wow what a difference they made. Very clear and the installation was a breeze.

Pros: Very clear and easy to install

Cons: Wish the angle mount was smaller. Only thing

Quality tweeter with a clean, full sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the existing front left and front right stock tweeters with the Focal tweeters and wow, what a difference they made. i am powering these with the stock head unit and the sound difference is incredible. I mostly listen to heavy metal and metalcore music, so vocals and guitar are very important and these tweeters accentuate the higher tones flawlessly. Clean, tight sounding, surprisingly loud and really ties together a system to produce a great sound stage in your vehicle without a harsh treble sound. I highly recommend these tweeters. I'm also running 4 Polk Db 6.5" speakers (replacing stock speakers), two 12" Memphis subs powered by a Rockford Fosgate 1000W mono amp as well as lining the entire car with dynamat and foam insulation in the trunk. Mind blowing, clean sound!!!

Pros: Easy install (about an hour to install both tweeters) Easy connection to stock wiring Clean, crisp, reverberating sound. Smooth, non-harsh highs

Cons: Should have bought another pair for the rear deck!!

Nice quality tweeters

These tweeters were what I needed for my Jeep. I used the stock speakers mounts to mount these and they produce great sound.

Pros: Price. Sound.

Cons: None so far.

Great quality for the price

Anonymous from Ethel, WA on 2/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound quality when connected through an appropriate crossover to a clean amp. Adds a great dimension to the rest of my system, which is mostly Focal.

Pros: Quality, looks and sound.

Cons: The flush mount system needs work- I ended up using epoxy to get a good mount.

Cheap at 1/10 of the price

Don from Nevada on 12/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't decide if mine are defective or just crap. The noises that come out are fuzzy, with no definition, and do nothing to improve the overall sound. I could have bought $10 tweeters and gotten better results. I've always been able to rely on Crutchfield in the past, so this is really the only negative review I've given.

Pros: Small, with adaptable mounting pod.

Cons: Sound like someone crinkling paper.

Crutchfield response on 12/23/2015 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get these working the way they should, or help him return them for an exchange or refund.

Drastic Improvement

Pmen from North Carolina on 11/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace component JBL aftermarket GTO tweeters that were very fatiguing to listen to. Since they came with a crossover built in I just wired to the source. Placed them in the original A pillar factory position. Just had to use a Dremel tool to enlarge the mounting holes. The sound difference was remarkable. Very crisp highs. A significant improvement from what I had.

Pros: Easy installation. Crisp, clear highs easy on the ears. Quality sound. Well worth it.

Cons: None

Excellent!

telekaster from California on 7/23/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced the factory tweeters in a 2012 Subaru Outback with these. They are a great improvement in clarity and detail. I also have replaced the other speakers, head unit, and added JL subwoofer and amp. I ran the Auto EQ from my Pioneer head unit and the complete package is well-balanced, clear, and full.

Pros: Great detail and clarity.

Cons: May not balance optimally with other speakers without some EQ help.

Pros: Great pair of tweeters to much to remove from my old car so got some new one for my new one and focal did not disappoint. The sound can not be compared to others if you truly want best start with this brand

Cons: None

I bought these tweeters, these are the best tweeters I have ever had! They sound amazing! I would recommend these to any one and everyone.

My first Focals

Randall R from Arizona on 2/16/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers were installed as a 3rd set of tweeters in the C-pillars of my 2014 Ford Focus SE Hatchback. They are smooth and handle the power well. I am so happy with these that I will begin to replace all the speakers in my car with the Focal brand name. Also my amplifiers (2 of them) also will be changed out to Focal in the near future.

Pros: Smooth and powerful and have a dual mounting system for any need you might have.

Cons: None whatsoever!

Vocals entry level. everyone's else's premium

Josh from michigan on 9/11/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I consider myself an audiophile and i got just what I expected out of a focal product.they produce absolute clarity in the high frequencies and belt them out using just radio power. This is my third set of focal speakers I've bought, focal access 5 1/4 coxails in my truck all around. I'm planning on adding everything else(besides sub's) focal plus an amp for the mids and these little guys in my car. A little pricy but if you want clarity spend the money once and you won't have to again when your unhappy with a lesser product

Pros: Clarity.mounting options. Look sleek in the pods

Cons: Price but its only money right?

Extremely bright

2005 Lincoln LS
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Added in parallel to a pair of foggy sounding focal 706 home speakers with a peachtree amp and cd player via coax. Very bright, sharp and crystal clear crossovers allow only the highest frequencies. Cymbals sound real, not the usual psssh sound of lesser tweeters. A bit power hungry and need to attenuate the focal 706s as they drown out the tweeters.

Pros: Brilliant high frequencies, no hiss.

Cons: power hungry

Simply amazing

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

firstly I have wanted a full focal system since the late 90's. I have always leaned to JL audio and Alpine. NOT NO MORE. the tweters from focal are amazing in detail, clarity, and overall performance. I have all focal access speakers, which contain all coaxils,, 6.75 for two sets of doors and 2 8" coxials access also,, these tweeters compliment them perfectly. I love the sleek look and moutning options. there was no need for speaker pods for these as the ones included blended with my 09 G8 perfectly..

Pros: cost. sound quality easy of use awesome apperance

Cons: if I were to list a "CON" of these tweeters I would be lieing

For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.[ Jeff  Nov 28, 2016 ]  Staff
I received a "Y" cable with bare-wire pigtails on each of the 3 ends with my Focal TiS 1.5 order. One side had the crossover built in and goes to the tweeter. The other side passes through to the existing speaker that you are tapping off of. I didn't see anyway of adjusting or tweaking anything. My assumption was that it is pre-tweaked by Focal or Crutchfield.[ jeffrey  Jun 28, 2016 ]
The tweeter has it's own "in line" crossover. Surely Focal's own design. Why would it need to be "tweeked"? [ Jeffrey  Jun 28, 2016 ]

These speakers are crossed at 6K. Actual response to 25K[ Michael  Feb 04, 2016 ]
6000 is the lowest frequency they are designed to play. Everything lower then 6k will be picked up by your main speakers. They do have built in crossover on the speaker leads. I'm powering them straight off my kenwood dnn992. They rock!! Keep within focals recommended power. And you'll be very pleasantly surprised[ Randall  Feb 04, 2016 ]
