The ES 165 K2E system consists of two 6 1/2” (165mm) woofers with a K2 sandwich cone made of aramid fiber, a Focal innovation of renowned performance. Their high sensitivity allows them to produce an enveloping, powerful and dynamic sound. The central ogive ensures better sound dispersion within the vehicle, to significantly enhance the in-car listening experience. The two TKME tweeters with the ‘M’-shaped inverted dome, also made of aramid fiber, are linked with bi-amplifiable audiophile crossovers. They ensure optimal control of the high frequencies, producing a smooth and perfectly defined treble. Hi-fi sound has arrived on board. For optimal, flexible installation options, the tweeters can be mounted in one of three ways: in the factory location, flush-fitted, or on angled brackets.

K2 Sandwich Cone
The aramid fiber cone inherits all of Focal’s unique know-how. Composed of an ultralight foam core, sandwiched between a thin layer of aramid fiber and a layer of fiberglass, it combines 3 key factors when it comes to acoustics: rigidity, lightness and damping, for sound that is as precise and dynamic as it can get.
The speaker drivers benefit from TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) technology, a patented innovation. This surround has a special profile, designed to better control the effect of resonance and reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The midranges are perfectly defined and very realistic.
The ‘M’-profile TKME tweeter extends the frequency response to 22 kHz with an even greater reduction of distortion, for smooth and precise diffusion in the high treble. Coupled with a ‘push-pull’ motor, based on IAL2 technology, it achieves very low resonance frequencies for perfect harmonic balance.
More Linearity and Precision
The progressive spider on the K2 Power speaker drivers is built around a progressive section to reproduce all the impact of the bass and increase the linearity, precision and dynamics of the sound.
The Radial VC cooling system for the speaker driver coil expels hot air from the coil towards the bottom of the motor through 6 holes. This improves control over the coil temperature, limiting the effects of heat compression and improving reliability. This improves the dynamics of the speaker driver and generates a powerful sound.
All the components used for the K2 Power crossovers have been specially selected and optimized to better control the effects of heat dissipation. These components are essential for managing the various channels and the soundstage reliably and efficiently.
