FLAX EVO: THE NEW LINE OF CAR AUDIO KITS

The Flax kit series from Focal won the hearts of music lovers all over the world when it was unveiled in 2013. On a constant quest for innovation, Focal has revamped its line and this year presents Flax Evo.

THE FLAX CONE, EXPRESSIVE AND NATURAL


This flax cone has been exclusively made in France by Focal since 2013. With its original design, it is 100% geared towards acoustic performance. This sandwich cone is formed of a flax fibre core placed between two thin sheets of glass fibre. Flax is a fibre with the unique ability to reproduce a very natural sound without colouration, with a rich reproduction in the midrange and clear bass strokes. Its lightness offers great dynamics, while its rigidity sustains the bass and provides good damping to deliver a faithful listening experience. Flax fibre is twice as light as glass fibre as it is hollow. Its very low elasticity makes it ideal for increasing the flexural rigidity module of a sandwich structure.

THE TAM TWEETER


Made in France in the Focal workshops, the TAM tweeter stands out for its many qualities, particularly in terms of wide-angle diffusion, beneficial for in-car environments characterised by “off-axis” listening. Comprising a cone that is an aluminium/magnesium ‘M’-profile inverted dome, this tweeter unites an impressive array of cutting-edge Focal technologies to reproduce a faultless harmonic balance and highly-detailed treble.

 

THE TMD SURROUND


A patented Focal technology, the TMD surround makes an appearance on all speaker drivers in the Flax Evo line, playing a key role in the reproduction and purity of the midranges as well as in the elimination of acoustic distortion, particularly when listening at high volumes.

 

FEATURES

Equipped with the Flax cone, the woofers from the PC 165 FE kit deliver a very dynamic, natural sound without colouration. In addition, the TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) surround they incorporate stabilises the surround to achieve better control, and even greater neutrality and linearity. The ‘M’-profile inverted dome coaxial tweeter, in the centre of the speaker driver, offers greater sound definition, without directionality, for an even more detailed listening experience. Finally, with its engraved aluminium basket and meticulous finishes, PC 165 FE combines style, discretion and modernity for a premium installation in your vehicle.
