Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6-1/2"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way Component Speakers
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
160 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
80 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
93 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
55 - 28,000 Hz
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

I'm happy

May 7, 2010

I recommend these speakers for anybody looking for excellent sounding speakers from Focal's Polyglass line but with great lower frequency response. The woofer makes a huge difference especially with rock music. They handle power very well, I have 60 watts rms going into them and they blow my eardrums out with no distortion.

Worth every penny if you're looking for good woofer response, otherwise go with the 2-ways. Focal sound quality gets an A+

Great in my GTI as well.

December 4, 2011

Installed these in my 2007 VW GTI since they're as close to a drop-in replacement as it gets (shallow midrange and the woofer isn't too deep either).

I have a PDX-F4 that's a bit too strong for them receiving a signal from my Audiocontrol LC2i, they make the stock speakers seem hollow and harsh. Great sound quality and excellent quality product.

They're a little pricey is the only complaint. You may be happier with a set that is half the price or less depending on how picky of a listener you are.

High end sound at a good price

June 12, 2009

If your looking for a great 3 way package for your vehicle than look no further. Focal has done there home work with their Polyglass line of car audio speakers. The speakers image well and produce a sound that is exceptional. The tweeters produce a sound that very smooth without being tinney or harsh (a problem with most metal tweeters). Crossover and speaker build quality are top notch.

This package worked well in my 2007 VW GTI because the 4" speaker location is shallow therefore limiting my options. Powering the package is a JL Audio 300v2 two channel amplifier. These two components work really well together to please the most demanding audiophile. I had to set the tweeter level on the crossover to 0 because at -1 setting the setup sounded somewhat muddy in the midrange. After the change was made, the front stage came alive. This setting will vary from car to car, so you need to adjust this level during install to suit your taste. I am using the stock deck with a JL Audio Clean Sweep to help reshape the signal. Sound will just get better with an aftermarket headunit and a subwoofer package.
