After more than five years of research and development, engineers at Focal can now reveal the Flax cones, a new flax-conegeneration of sandwich cone,  which adds to W and K2 technologies.

F cones are made of high-quality flax fibers enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber.

Flax natural properties in term of lightness and rigidity satisfy the key criteria of a high performance diaphragm : high internal damping, high velocity of sound and high flexural rigidity. F cone are characterised by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.

Made in France but affordable, the Flax series is oriented towards acoustic performance, high-tech, design.

The Flax line consists of 4 component kits.

The PS 130 F and PS 165 F, respectively 5″ and 6.5″, ensure perfect integration into your vehicle’s factory locations thanks to the pre-wired compact passive crossovers. These two kits replace the P 130 V15 and P 165 V15 kits.
Focal offers two models for audiophiles seeking ultimate performance and customised audio systems: the PS 165 FX, a 2-way kit with passive crossover for bi-amping, and the PS 165 F3, a 3-way kit featuring an ultra-compact 3″ midrange. These two products replace the P 165 V30 and the P 165 V33.
