Utopia M Series 3-1/2″ Midrange Driver
About the Focal 3.5WM
The Focal 3.5WM is great if you emphasize success in your vehicle, why not do the same for your audio system? Focal built, produced and manufactured this single Utopia M 3.5WM 3-1/2″ midrange driver in their workshop in Saint-Etienne, France, with the utmost care and dedication to quality sound. It astounds with acoustic clarity and depth of sound comparable to their critically praised home speakers. Incorporate this versatile speaker into a custom part device to improve your driving experience with a deeper, more energetic midrange.
Great MidRange Speakers
Focal maximizes the lightness, rigidity, and damping of this foam core cone by using their patented “W” sandwich pattern, which is laminated on both sides with thin sheets of glass fabric.
The tuned surround of the speaker exerts close control over cone movement, eliminating distortion and allowing you to hear a more natural performance.
Focal also prioritizes shallow depth to make this very particular speaker more suitable for a wider range of installation locations. With a power handling capacity of up to 50 watts RMS, you can comfortably drive this speaker with a healthy amount of power.
Build Your OWN System
This component speaker was designed to be part of a Focal Utopia M system, incorporating these other high-performance speakers:
- TBM 1″ tweeters
- 6WM 6-1/2″ component woofer
- 8WM 8″ component woofer
- SUB10WM 10″ dual 4-ohm component subwoofer
These components will deliver the ultimate in-car audio performance, whether you install them in factory speaker locations or use them for a custom installation. The grille is sold separately.

THE BEST OF FOCAL TECHNOLOGIES
‘M’-profile ‘W’ sandwich cone
The new, patented, ‘M’-profile cone is the result of many years of research and our expertise in materials and their geometry. The innovative ‘M’-profile, made from a single piece, means it is incredibly rigid and perfectly combines the three criteria essential for creating an “ideal” speaker driver: rigidity, lightness, and damping. The result is the extremely linear frequency response, a low distortion rate, and better sound dispersion.
Upon listening, this cone delivers striking realism and a level of detail, that transports you into the heart of music.
Originally developed for the Sopra line of high-fidelity loudspeakers, our TMD® (Tuned Mass Damper) surround has a unique profile, designed to better control the effects of resonance and to drastically reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The speaker driver takes advantage of this patented technology by spreading better defined and very realistic midranges’ frequencies. Progressive spider
The progressive spider used on all our Utopia drivers is built around a progressive section that reproduces all the impact of the bass whilst optimizing the linearity, precision, and dynamics of the sound.
