FOCAL FSP-8 – “Shape your Sound”

Focal offers a complete range of amplifiers to meet all the needs of aspiring owners of high quality car audio.

From IMPULSE to FPX, through the FD or the IBUS range of products, power and musicality drive your speakers to create the rhythm for your journeys.
However, one essential link was missing…
How could we create the best product on the market for connecting your head unit to your amplifier system? How could we make it possible for you to shape and fine-tune the audio spectrum to create your very own musical experience?

Meet the FSP-8, the ultimate digital signal processor for optimising and shaping the audio signal…




Even if most vehicles today are equipped with a standard audio system, the most demanding sound enthusiasts want unique, high-quality audio for their car. They want to build their sys- tem, step by step and have full control over each element of the audio story. The DSP (Digital Signal Processor) is an essential tool in achieving this.



Equipped with six selec- table high and low level inputs, the FSP-8 is fully com- patible with both factory head units and aftermarket solutions

It also features an optical digi- tal input (24bits/192kHz) to provide high-resolution sound quality.

Finally, the FSP-8 is equipped with an additional auxiliary input, allowing the user to connect all types of media devices to the audio system (digital music players, smart- phones etc.)

Whether it’s for controlling FLAX speaker drivers, the latest K2 POWER line or UTOPIA BE speaker drivers, as many as eight 3.4V outputs will enable you to ne-tune all the essen- tial settings of your car audio architecture.

An optional LCD remote control (sold separately) improves user experience even more. The intuitive control allows you to easily adjust the main settings, and more importantly, to recall up to four saved presets.


The FSP-8 DSP MANAGER is our user interface for controlling the FSP-8 from a laptop.
Its design was inspired by the solutions used to perfect the audio systems in production vehicles manufactured by Focal’s partners.

In just a few clicks, the four main screens will give you access to all the strategic settings, reducing setup time and optimising your listening sessions.

High-resolution sound quality, compatible inputs/outputs, a user interface designed for and by acoustic experts, FSP-8 is the ultimate tool for the most demanding installations.

Key Points:

• Compatible with all head units
• High-resolution digital input (24 bits/192kHz)
• Unique and intuitive user interface Focal DSP Manager

Charlie B’s Sea-Doo RXT260 2014 Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:13:01 +0000 Installed by: Jeff Sweere & Jason MacRunnels from Sweet Sounds in Mankato, MN

Owner’s Name: Charlie B.

Year/Make/Model: Sea-Doo RXT260 2014

Product Used: PS 165 F3, PS 165 FX, Sub P 25 F


Jeff’s Notes:  This marine audio systems consists of a set of Focal Flax PS165 F3 in the front, a set of Flax PS 165FX in the rear, a front mounted Flax Sub P 25 F 10″ subwoofer all being powered by a Memphis Marine 5 channel amp.  For the main source, we mounted a Memphis marine audio controller on the swim platform with a Sony wired remote control to be able to adjust the system from the drivers seat.  Source options include AM/FM, USB audio, 3.5mm Aux input and streaming Bluetooth.  All products were mounted with King Starboard HDPE including the front components which replaced the mirrors and the storage covered which was replaced by the 10″ woofer.  All speakers are back lit with variable color LED strip lights.  We also crafted a battery box from 1/2″ starboard and fastened it with stainless steel bolts.  The two batteries are isolated via a 200A relay.  We installed charging ports on the amp rack for the secondary battery.  The amp and Focal crossovers were mounted just below the seat on a custom made amp rack.   All custom pieces were crafted from Starboard, stainless steel and aluminum.  Every single connection, including power, speaker, antenna, and signal cable was sealed using 4 to 1 Ratio polyolefin heat shrink with inner adhesive liner. This allows every single connections to be completely sealed without question.  Most wiring was covered with expandable nylon braided sleeving.

We also cut access holes in the amp rack to allow the oil level to be checked without having to remove the amp rack.  Speaking of the amp rack, since those bolts rest against the outer hull, we protect the hull with rubber washers underneath the stainless steel fender washer.

Having built many very cool stereo systems in cars, trucks, boats and more over the past 25+ years, once we turned this system on we were all smiles.  Simply amazing sound from the Focals.
