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

The speaker drivers from the PS 165 F3E kit combine the best of Flax technology with the latest Focal innovations to deliver one of the most natural sounds. The TMD surround (Tuned Mass Damper) is incorporated in the woofers and midranges to stabilise the surround and achieve better control, neutrality and linearity: the bass is even denser, the performance in the top midrange is improved and harmonic distortion reduced. Combined, these speaker drivers create a precise, powerful sound without colouration. The ‘M’-profile inverted dome TAM tweeters included in the kit offer a wider diffusion angle and greater sound definition, without directionality. Thanks to their tilted mounting, they are easy to install in the vehicle. An audiophile crossover completes the kit, offering several adjustment levels for the tweeters and midranges. Finally, with its engraved aluminium basket and meticulous finishes, PS 165 F3E combines style, discretion and modernity for a premium system.
