If you like live, dynamic sound, the Focal K2 Power ES 165 KX2 component set from Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver or Victoria might be the perfect solution for your vehicle. This 6.5-inch component set features a Kevlar composite woofer cone, carefully designed passive crossover network and the new M-shaped TKMX inverted-dome tweeters. Let’s look at what makes this set so unique.
The Focal Kevlar Composite Woofer Cone
For decades, the yellow Kevlar cones have been the hallmark of the K2 Power Series. Designed and constructed in their factories in St. Etienne, France, these composite sandwich cones feature an expanded foam core that is laminated to Kevlar and glass fiber membranes. The result is a low-mass speaker cone with amazing rigidity. Focal attaches the woofer cone to the basket with a new Tune Mass Damper butyl rubber surround. Focal foregoes a dust cap on the ES 165 KX2 set in favour of a large phase plug. This phase plug helps to remove heat from the voice coil and T-Yoke.
The woofer is based on a cast aluminum basket that features integrated cooling vents beneath the cupped spider. Additional cooling for the 40mm voice coil is provided by a vent in the back plate of the motor assembly. A set of mesh steel grilles is included in each set for custom installations.
Unique TKMX Inverted Dome Tweeter
Ongoing testing and engineering have led the evolution from previous tweeter designs into the new TKMX. This new tweeter features an M-shaped profile that reduces distortion by changing where the voice coil former attaches to the aramid fiber diaphragm. A tuned rear chamber improves bandwidth and reduces resonance for detailed high-frequency sound reproduction.
Vehicle-Tuned Passive Crossover Network
One of the key traits of Focal K2 Power speakers is their passive crossover networks. Unlike basic designs that are tuned for display boards, Focal passive crossover networks are designed to optimize the sound in your car. The crossovers include the ability to be bi-amped for extremely detailed system level control.
