what other speakers compare to the Focal K2 Power 165K3P
I have the 165v2's in my car and they are absolutely awesome. Nothing has yet compared.
Rainbow definitely would destroy em
did u read mobile electronics review on high end components a couple months back? the rainbows came in third if i'm not mistaken... magazines are very biased but i was very surprised to see the rainbow scored so low, considering they retail for 5 or 10 grand.
ok, 5 or 10K for speakers.... no way!
what would cost less than the focals and sound just as good?
Well, that really depends on each person. Every person has different preferences on what they think sounds best. So the speaker you think sounds best might not be the one others would reccomend. Also, depending on the car and position they are installed in will also effect the sound greatly.
That said, if you like the sound of the Focal's on the sound board in the store, and they are in your budget, then you'll probably like them in your car as well
guess i need to find some people around town that have other spearkers i can hear --- in a car...
roommate has a set of focals and they sound GREAT but the price is the only issue.
Michelin man, you could always check ebay for focal's with warranties , price would probably be more to your liking
i will keep an eye on ebay to see what i can find.
I've got Focal components and think they sound fucking great! Very crisp and clear. Treble can get a little over the top but thank god thats adjustable...I love 'em
if you can find the Orion concepts from a few years back, uber $$$, but also I would say my MB Quart QSD's are up there, the tweets are awful bright, some people are not a fan, but the SQ is undeniable
I like the Diamond S600's
Boston Acoustics Pro's can beat anybody
OZ Audio Matrix 180CS. Had them in my last car. Haven't gotten around to putting my old system in my current car, but they are great speakers if you can get a hold of a set...
Try out something from DLS, CDT, Morel (from israel), Lotus, OZ, image dynamics.
I am not at all impressed with the sound of focals. The Utopia woofers on the other hand
I'd go with MB Quart for some lower cost options but definitely comparable sound quality. I'm running MB Quart Discus series front and back, and the imaging is fantastic for the price.
are there any sites that "rate" car / home audio stuff?
I'd take the reviews with a grain of salt though. Just because one person likes the way some speakers sound doesnt mean everyone will.
