Focal's top-of-the-line Utopia speaker line exemplifies their dedication to musical perfection, and their latest Utopia M Series speakers use advanced materials and unique design to give you the best Focal has to offer. Handmade in France, the 8WM 8" component woofer uses the new "M"-profile one-piece cone for maximum rigidity, bringing top-of-the-line technology to a compact speaker that fits in many vehicles.
Focal's composite sandwich "W" cone features a layer of durable structural foam between two layers of precision-coated glass, giving it exceptional rigidity. A butyl rubber surround helps keep the cone under firm control, and the aluminum basket gives the woofer rock-solid power and strength. Designed to eliminate the need for a dust cap, the "M-profile" cone combines lightness, rigidity, and superior damping for extremely accurate, "true-to-life" performance.
With a mounting depth of only 2", this woofer can replace the 8" speaker found in some vehicles or can be part of a custom installation, giving you a great sound upgrade when paired with other Focal components. This versatile speaker handles up to 100 watts RMS, so we recommend you drive it with an outboard amplifier for maximum performance. For an ideal musical experience, step outside the normal and visit Utopia.
This component speaker was designed to be part of a Focal Utopia M system, incorporating these other high-performance speakers:
- Focal Utopia TBM 1" tweeters
- Focal Utopia 3.5WM 3-1/2" midrange driver
- Focal Utopia 6WM 6-1/2" component woofer
- Focal Utopia SUB10WM 10" dual 4-ohm component subwoofer
These components will deliver the ultimate in car audio performance, whether you install them in factory speaker locations or use them for a custom installation. The grille is sold separately.
Installation Note: You'll need an active crossover for this woofer, as Focal doesn't include a passive crossover.
