When it comes to speaker upgrades that offer excellent value, the staff at Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria turns to the Focal Integration series. Based in St. Etienne, France, Focal has a history of developing truly boutique products that have made it a sought-after brand for many years. Let’s look at some of the key features of the Integration speakers and why they are often a great upgrade for our clients.
Efficient Speaker Design
Not every audio system we work on has high-power amplifiers and custom fabrication. In fact, we are quite happy to assist our clients with a simple radio or speaker replacement to make their audio systems more enjoyable. Focal has dedicated significant effort to designing the Integration series speakers so that they would be efficient in instances where power is limited, but still work well with low- to moderate-power amplifiers. What does this mean? Integration speakers play at reasonable volume levels with minimal power requirements.
Solutions for Every Situation
Another great feature of the Integration speakers is the incredible breadth they offer. The Integration line includes eight component sets that feature woofers from 5¼ through 8 inches in diameter. Coaxial solutions are available in five sizes from 4- through 6.5-inch, with 5×7 and 6×9 solutions for oval applications.
One concern that the Integration speakers overcome is mounting depth. Most premium speakers have a deep basket and magnet. In certain situations, the speaker can be too deep to fit in a door and cause the window to run into the magnet assembly.
Focal Integration Vehicle-Specific Solutions
As a global company, Focal has sought out popular vehicles that need better speakers. Once defined, the engineering team set out to develop a series of application-specific solutions. The Integration series includes nine vehicle-specific upgrade designs for Toyota, Volkswagen and BMW vehicles. These kits include everything we need to upgrade the sound in your vehicle with a true plug-and-play solution that dramatically improves your audio system. Toyota vehicles include the Camry, Prius, Tundra, Yaris, Corolla, RAV4, Tacoma and FJ Cruiser. Volkswagen-specific speakers are available for Golfs and Jettas. Finally, the BMW solutions include 1, 3 and 5 series sedans and coupes and the X1 compact SUV. Drop by either of our locations to confirm a solution for your vehicle.
