Discover the world of Focal sound quality with the 165 A3. This 6.5-inch three-way kit adds a 4-inch midrange speaker to the A1's offerings, so it can deliver even more Focal sound--extreme dynamics, punchy bass and accurate treble, with an expansive soundstage to fill your vehicle with crystal-clear audio. The 6.5-inch woofers boast a one-inch voice coil with excellent power handling, a high-sensitivity magnet, and butyl rubber surround for durability and powerful bass. The aluminum inverted dome tweeters provide clear and accurate treble, and can be set at three different levels using the crossovers, to provide the ideal relative volume for its install location. Experience Focal's "Spirit of Sound" with flawless imaging, and uncommon detail and dynamics.

About the Access Line

Discover the world of Focal sound quality via a range that reconciles technology, performance and affordability. The same Focal character and our philosophy of "The Spirit of Sound" is displayed by the extreme attention to detail found at every development stage for the various transducers and crossovers.

The essential component in terms of quality of reproduction, richness of timbre plus image detail is the inverted dome aluminum tweeter whose inclusion represented a true challenge: how to bring a unique Focal technology into a more affordable market segment. At the same time, the woofers and subwoofers combine high sensitivity and high power handling.

The humidity resistant woven glass fibre cone combines the dynamics and precision of the mid-range while offering a deep and articulated bass.




The 165 A3 kit adds a 4-inch midrange driver to the A1's offerings, with the same construction as the woofer.

The woofer's power handling and reliability are remarkable thanks to deliberately oversized voice coils, resulting in deep and accurate bass. Click to enlarge.

Aluminum inverted dome tweeter technology offers significant rigidity and lowers distortion. Click to enlarge.

Crossover with 3-level tweeter control. Click to enlarge.

The 165 A3 Woofer and 4-inch Midrange

The 6.5-inch Access woofer and 4-inch Midrange are both built with a light and stiff cone, coupled with a butyl rubber surround, offering a degree of quality never before encountered at this price level. The special all weather cone will perform in hot and humid environments without distortion or warping. The woofer's power handling and reliability are remarkable thanks to deliberately oversized voice coils, resulting in deep and accurate bass.

Painted DIN chassis, 20% glass fiber filled ABS material
This strong, rigid chassis is non-magnetic and nonresonant.

All weather woven glass fiber cone
The durable, humidity-resistant cone provides dynamic bass and precise midrange.

Phase plug
Phase plug designs control midrange out of the listening axis, for added accuracy.

25mm (1") voice coil (woofer)
Larger voice coils provide excellent power handling, which in turn provides a tight, well-defined low-end.

85mm (3-1/3") magnet (woofer)
High sensitivity where everything begins.

Voice coil cooling system
Provides reliable, consistent performance, no matter what kind of abuse your system dishes out.

The TN 44 tweeter

Aluminum inverted dome tweeter technology offers significant rigidity and lowers distortion. Ideal air coupling, the main advantage of the inverted dome shape, allows a very wide soundstage and very accurate image, unlike a convex (traditional) dome that is moving more on its periphery than on its center, causing a weak coil/dome energy transfer.

Aluminum inverted dome tweeter
Provides accurate treble with the utmost efficiency.

20mm (13/16") ferrofluid voice coil
Excellent power handling and heat dispersal.

Crossover

The 12/12dB/octave (300Hz-4kHz) separated Access crossover fully reflects Focal's philosophy, which is oriented toward product application and uncompromising quality requirements. Polypropylene capacitors bring to these products high and distortion-free dynamics. Level control available in two-way systems allows refining the tuning of the tweeter in all locations.

Adjustable tweeter level
Adjust the tweeter level control according to location (3 level settings) with a simple switch.

Air core inductors
Insensitive to parasite interferences.

About Focal

Innovation is key to the Focal sound. For 25 years, through the pursuit of constant new advances in technology, Focal has been able to develop a harmonious research and production system that enables us to continuously improve our products and introduce new ones, all with the same goal: the most faithful reproduction of music. The latest example of this philosophy has been the introduction of Beryllium in our top products, which has become a new reference worldwide.

Constantly pursuing innovation is the embodiment of Focal's corporate strategy and that goal involves every facet of the company. From R&D to production to quality control, all our teams are fully involved and focused on this one objective: continual progress through innovation.

In today's world, where globalization and the pursuit of chasing cheaper production methods have tempted most companies to splinter their organizations, Focal has opted to be different. Though we have grown tremendously through the years, our R & D, headquarters and manufacturing facilities remain based in Saint-Etienne (France).

We have learned that true innovation is not simply work carried out at the research department, but is also a question of comprehensive management and the direct control of the different production phases. The example of Beryllium is a significant one. Only three years ago no one was capable of producing tweeters with a pure Beryllium foil dome. Focal innovated a solution based on research and the invention of specific in-house industrial processes.

Such an approach has given us an important advantage over our competitors: we develop our own technology, which allows us to consistently provide true quality production using our own methods. In 2008, the Focal Car range gets richer with a new amplifier line: Solid. This perfectly sums up Focal's commitment for high musical quality from the entry-level contrary to the general tendency that consists in looking for the cheapest prices in priority instead of performance.The result is music standardization and trivialization, which is highly prejudicial to sound quality. Focal cultivates this difference. This is the core strength of our brand and our company. This is the Spirit of Sound. We want to share this with you... It is our Utopia

Can't say anything but wow! These speakers put out incredible sound and are super loud. I have these hooked up to a rockford fosgate amp and it is like listening to music for the first time. You can make out every note and percussion hit. Despite being in Focal's entry level access line, they sound as good as speakers costing 2 to 3 times as much. If you are a true audiophile the tweeters might be a little bright, but flipping the switch on the crossover to -3db will knock most of it away. They also get a little less bright as the speakers break in. These are completely worth the money if you want true high quality sound.

These 3-way components are pretty good. Most people install them in the original door panels and most cars just have room for a 6-1/2" and a tweeter, so the speakers ends up far away from each other. The best way to have all three installed on each side, is keep the midbass in the doors, and get some kick panels or A-pillar panels to put the mid-range and the highs. The midbass does not need to be pointing at you, because low frequencies spread all over the vehicle (even if they are lacking power, and you dont hear them). The mid-range speakers and tweeters have to be pointing to the opposite side (left mids and highs facing the passenger's head, and the ones to the right facing the driver's). When you do this, of course using a decent amplifier, you can achieve a wide, deep and pretty high sound stage. These speakers can even be used to compete in Sound Quality if you are a rookie or a new amateur. Good Bless!

By Jason on January 23, 2013
Though I did not buy mine from amazon, I feel the need to expand on the previous 3 star post. Installing these without an amplifier is folly. You will get nowhere near the power needed to drive them properly. If you do not understand how to install a 3 way component set properly to achieve correct sound staging, you are also asking for problems. Most complaints about car audio speakers are directly related to improper installation or poor understanding of staging concept. Add the fact that no one series or manufacturer of speaker is a perfect solution for every person on the planet (don't buy em till you hear em) , and you will see that most all products on the market will fall short of a 5 start review.

Focal makes a great loudspeaker, it may not fit your ear like mine but it is a quality line. Be VERY wary of installers that even suggest putting a speaker like this on head power too btw.
