The ES 165 KX2E audio kit consists of two 6 1/2” (165mm) woofers with a K2 cone. Made of aramid fibre, this exclusive Focal cone promises to deliver rich and striking sound. Combined with the central ogive that guarantees better sound dispersion within the passenger compartment, in-car listening becomes truly thrilling.

Equipped with an aluminium/magnesium cone, the ‘M’-shaped inverted dome FRAK tweeters offer an ultra-realistic sound. Coupled with bi-amplified audiophile crossovers, they enable perfect control of the high frequencies, reproducing super smooth, defined treble. The listening experience is marked by unparalleled harmonic balance. Thanks to their angled brackets, the tweeters will fit seamlessly into the passenger compartment.

K2 Sandwich Cone

The aramid fibre cone inherits all of Focal’s unique know-how. Composed of an ultralight foam core, sandwiched between a thin layer of aramid fibre and a layer of fibreglass, it combines 3 key factors when it comes to acoustics: rigidity, lightness and damping, for a sound that is as precise and dynamic as it can get.

TMD® Surround

The speaker drivers benefit from TMD(Tuned Mass Damper) technology, a patented innovation. This surround has a special profile, designed to better control the effect of resonance and reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The midranges are perfectly defined and very realistic.

TKME Tweeter

The ‘M’-profile TKME tweeter extends the frequency response to 22 kHz with an even greater reduction of distortion, for smooth and precise diffusion in the high treble. Coupled with a ‘push-pull’ motor, based on IAL2 technology, it achieves very low resonance frequencies for perfect harmonic balance.

FRAK Tweeter

The ES 165 KX2E and ES 165 KX3E kits are equipped with Focal's ‘M’-shaped FRAK tweeter. A revolution in Car Audio, it combines aluminium and magnesium for good frequency lowering and superb damping. Its lightness helps it shine in the high treble.

More Linearity and Precision

The progressive spider on the K2 Power speaker drivers is built around a progressive section to reproduce all the impact of the bass and increase the linearity, precision and dynamics of the sound.

Increased SPL

The Radial VC cooling system for the speaker driver coil expels hot air from the coil towards the bottom of the motor through 6 holes. This improves control over the coil temperature, limiting the effects of heat compression and improving reliability. This improves the dynamics of the speaker driver and generates a powerful sound.

Optimised crossover

All the components used for the K2 Power crossovers have been specially selected and optimised to better control the effects of heat dissipation. These components are essential for managing the various channels and the soundstage reliably and efficiently.

Slim Profile

The ES 165 K2S and SUB 25 KXS kits have a shallow depth. This slim profile takes up minimal space whilst maintaining exceptional power handling.
