Focal Introduces Utopia M High-End Car Audio Series

October 31 2018, 01:35
Focal unveiled Utopia M, the latest in high-end reference car audio from the French brand. In 2005, the Utopia Be line was developed using Focal’s best high-fidelity loudspeakers, revolutionizing the brand’s Car Audio line. Now, Focal introduces the evolution of that legacy, a new high-end reference: The Utopia M line, which include five completely new drivers and a new 2-way passive kit.

True high-end icons, the Utopia speaker drivers use the very best of Focal’s technology, including the M-profile cone. For Utopia M, Focal went to the extreme with laser measuring and the most advanced simulation tools to develop an ‘M’-profile ‘W’ sandwich cone. This unique, one-piece cone with no central dome enables better frequency response and better sound dispersion. The profile also reduces the depth and allows for a larger voice coil to bring together power and a flawless musical sound.

Handmade in France, the Utopia M speaker drivers use high-end formulas across the portfolio: a unique cone and a unique chassis. The design of the Utopia M chassis is a subtle, elegant mix of tradition, performance and elegance. All the components of the Utopia speaker drivers have been reworked for optimal sound and performance: TMD suspension, progressive spider, large voice coil, and the red neodymium motor, Focal’s epic signature.

In addition to the 6.5" woofer and the tweeter, the line includes a 3.5" medium, an 8" slim woofer and a 10" subwoofer to create a more dynamic system. With Utopia M, installers can build 'à la carte' audio systems. The range also comes complete with a new 2-way passive kit.

Focal kept the essence of the 165W-RC kit which boasted easy installation and Utopia’s signature sound and performance features, while also adopting new technologies. The woofer keeps its 'W' sandwich cone and also benefits from the TMD suspension, a progressive spider and a new ventilated motor. Named 165W-XP, this 2-way kit uses a new Beryllium inverted dome tweeter, features bi-amplification passive crossover and adopts the new Utopia design codes, ensuring the same high performance and continuity expected with Focal and Utopia M.
