Focal Performance PS 165FX
Performance Expert Series 6-1/2″ Component Speaker System
A Detailed Soundstage
The Focal Performance PS 165FX component speaker system from Focal blends these revolutionary flax 6-1/2″ woofers with the company’s acclaimed inverted dome tweeters and flexible crossovers.
The inverted dome tweeters work similarly to small woofers, dispersing high frequencies in a large pattern to produce an unusually natural soundstage. Focal includes two surface-mounting options for the tweeters, or you can flush-mount them for a more discrete look in your vehicle.
About the Focal Performance PS 165FX
Focal is constantly on the lookout for materials that will enable them to manufacture some of the most accurate speakers on the market.
This time, Focal discovered that flax fibers aid in the creation of a very rigid, lightweight cone for their speakers. The hollow flax fibers are spun and sandwiched between thin glass membranes with half the weight of fiberglass. You’ll get a vibrant and accurate speaker that resists unnecessary noises because it’s mounted to a solid aluminum basket.
Distributing the Frequencies
Focal uses its crossovers to effectively create open and natural imaging for your music. The PS 165FX crossovers include tweeter and midrange level adjustments that let you create an ideal blend of the highs and lows for a dynamic stereo image in your car. And these crossovers are bi-ampable if you want to further customize your sound by using separate amps to power the tweeters and the woofers.
SO ORIGINAL FLAX CONE
The flax cone is made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With its original design, the cone is entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high-quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. F cone is characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration. Their richness of reproduction in the midrange register, and their tighter bass. The lightness of the fiber satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity, and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fiberglass because the fiber is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.
