Summary: Look, I've brought speakers from Polk, Rockford, Infinity Kappa the last couple of years and these blow them out the water. It is not even close. These are the only speakers I have bought that handle everything well. The music comes out super clear. RIght now, I have a factory 2012 Honda Civic system and Boston Acoustic 4 channel amp pushing these and they go hard! I have Polk Dxi speakers in the rear and they sound horrible compare these Focal speakers.
Pros: Handles bass really well. The tweeters rarely strain when turned up.
Summary: These things are better than Bose or Boston or they are neck-and-neck. These speakers are great. The tweeter rises over the rest of the speaker so your car factory grill isn't going to work...easy install. The speakers them selves sound so crispy it is incredible. And when I went to Focals website and saw how they are handmade I just went whooooosh!
Pros: Have you ever been to an Dire Straits show? Me neither but I drive through one everyday to work.
Cons: Wish they were not so expensive....but the quality on these guys in unmatched...if you got the $$$ then these are your new toys. I got them along with the Focal PS130s for some high quality sound.
Summary: to be honest i had kicker 5 1/4 in my front doors and they didn't sound very loud. i put these focal speakers in and they sounded okay but not very loud. so i put a new head unit in and these things sream i love loud music and i have to turn them down the clarity in the highs are amazing and very crisp.
Pros: extremely loud
Cons: if the volume is turned up too much some songs sound a little distorted, but that is prob the same with all speakers
Summary: I love these speakers! Fantastic clarity throughout the soundfield. Extremely well built. Fantastic detail on highs and mids with plenty of clear defined bass for all but the trunk shaker crowd. Very happy well worth the extra few bucks to get a higher quality product.
Pros: VERY solid construction. Amazing clarity of your favorite music
