Product Information

The Flax Collection from Focal

When the flax-series was introduced to the car audio community, it showed how creative Focal can be. The PS 165 FX 6-1/2” 2-way car component speakers not only sound great, they also contain some prized Focal technologies and innovations that has served the French manufacturer so well over the years. You need to hear these Focal speakers to believe them. Or you could just take our word for it.

Getting the Details Just Right

High frequency response is handled by a pair of 1” aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeters. This metallic blend allows the tweeters to hit ultra-high frequencies without that “sizzly” sound that accompanies inferior metal tweeters. One other feature of note is the inverted dome nature of the tweeter. This helps the tweeter send the high frequencies in a wider pattern in comparison to other tweeter designs (traditional dome tweeters, for example). You’re going to hear more detail pretty much regardless of where the tweeters are mounted.

Flax Woofer Cones

In Focal’s quest to find a lower-cost solution to the aramid fiber woofers found in the ES 165 KX2, they found flax. Flax is a naturally-occurring, hollow-tubed material that is exceptionally strong and lightweight. The flax woofer cone is sandwiched between a pair of ultra-thin glass fiber sheets to help improve rigidity and performance. You’ll enjoy clean, uncolored sound from these ground-breaking woofers. They also feature a phase plug planted in the middle of the woofer to help eliminate standing waves that can disrupt accurate sound reproduction.

Versatile Crossovers

The engineers at Focal realized that car audio is filled with compromises, so to help limit sound quality/imaging issues, they give you a couple different adjustments in the crossover to help improve your listening experience. In the case of the PS 165 FX car speaker system, you are able to adjust the levels (or volume) of the tweeters and/or woofers simply by flicking a switch located under the crossover’s plastic cover. If you’re interested in even better sound or more control, you can bi-amplify the speaker system, too, right through the crossover. How’s that for choices?
