Few car audio brand names resonate as clearly with enthusiasts as Focal. Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria understands the performance and value that 40 years of experience brings to the audio market. Whether it’s a drop-in upgrade for a Toyota or Volkswagen, or a bespoke installation in a Porsche or Ferrari, there’s a Utopia M, K2 Power, Flax Evo or Integration-Series speaker or subwoofer that will fit perfectly and sound uniquely distinctive. Let’s explore the speaker lines from Focal. We’ll explain the technologies that make each of them truly unique.
Focal Elite Series Speakers and Subwoofers
Focal is recognized around the world for its Utopia speakers. Not long ago, Focal launched Utopia M – the second generation of their flagship car audio components. Focal has combined amazing technology with their experience in designing and manufacturing composite-material speaker cones to produce truly unique automotive audio transducers.
The Utopia M line starts with the new TBM tweeters. These 1-inch high-frequency drivers combine a pure undamped beryllium diaphragm with Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) butyl rubber surrounds. The resulting drivers offer great performance and incredible high-frequency extension for a truly high-resolution listening experience. From the tweeters, we can help you choose from the 3.5-inch 3.5WM midrange drivers or go straight to the 6WM 6.5-inch woofers. Both drivers feature a new M-Profile ‘W’ composite sandwich cone design. By layering fiberglass around an expanded foam core, Focal created a lightweight and rigid cone material that helps these speakers deliver lightning-fast response. Both drivers, along with the 8WM 8-inch woofers feature proprietary cast aluminum baskets, oversized voice coils and neodymium magnets.
For bass, it’s hard to beat the impact of the SUB10WM 10-inch subwoofer. With 400 watts of power handling, a massive 120 mm-diameter voice coil and a neodymium ring magnet motor assembly, these subwoofers can deliver razor-sharp bass from impressively compact enclosures.
All Utopia M drivers are sold a la carte and are designed to be used with multiple amplifier channels and a digital signal processor to deliver amazing sound. One of our product specialists can help you choose the right drivers to suit your vehicle and listening preferences.
Focal K2 Power Speakers and Subwoofers Delivery Lively Sound
The K2 Power Series is what made Focal the name it is. The instantly recognizable yellow Kevlar speaker cones and the new M-shaped aramid fiber tweeters are found in seven component and coaxial speaker sets. The ES-Series K2 Power drivers combine a lively sound with significantly reduced distortion compared to previous versions, thanks to the inclusion of butyl rubber Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) surrounds.
For big bass, K2 Power 10- and 12-inch subwoofers share the same composite cone technologies as the midrange drivers along with double-stacked magnets and massive voice coils to produce a deep bass response with incredible impact. With 600 and 800 watts of continuous power handling, respectively, K2 Power subwoofers are a great choice to bring out the fun in your music.
Focal Flax Evo Speakers and Subwoofer Solutions
For the Flax Evo Series, Focal put a unique twist on their composite cone woofer design by including a 0.4 mm-thin layer of woven flax from the fields of the Flanders, Picardy, Normandy and Pas-de-Calais regions in France. Flax, one of the world’s oldest textiles, has a balance of strength and weight that make it a perfect complement to Focal’s composite-cone glass fiber layers. The Flax Evo speaker series includes five component sets, including a three-way set. There’s also a coaxial 6.5-inch driver set available.
For bass, the Flax series includes 8- and 10-inch conventional subwoofers that feature rigid stamped steel baskets and double-stacked magnet assemblies. Rounding out the offerings are 8- and 10-inch shallow mount subwoofers that are perfect for under-seat subwoofer solutions in trucks and custom enclosures in sedans and hatchbacks.
Integration Series and Focal Inside Vehicle-Specific Solutions
Designed to maximize the performance of a factory source unit or amplifier, the Integration series speakers provide efficiency and installation flexibility that few can match. Focal designed each driver to minimize mounting depth while maintaining impressive bass output and clear midrange performance. These drivers feature Polyglass woofer cones with high-performance aluminum/magnesium tweeters to deliver precise and detailed sound. Size options include 4-, 5¼-, 6½-, 5×7 and 6×9-inch coaxial solutions along with 5¼-, 6½-, 8-, 5×7 and 6×9-inch component sets.
For vehicle-specific applications, Focal Inside driver sets include direct bolt-in solutions for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Toyota, Nissan, BMW and Volkswagen cars and SUVs. All vehicle-specific solutions are designed with mounting hardware and brackets to make the installation efficient. No modifications to your vehicle are required in most applications.
