Focal - awsome to say the least! Need a big amp to run 'em
BTW, the Boston pro series are a nice set up. Their cheaper lines are where they fall flat

thats sweet man exactly what i wanted to hear....because this aft i bought some focal polyglass 5-1/4" components and a pheonix gold amp to run them so im looking forward to it!!
I was referring to the Utopia's or K2's but you will be happy with what you have - nice set up :D .
Personally, I have not heard anything on this planet that can compare to the Utopia's - but sound is a very personal thing and everyone's ear is different

Re: Best Speakers

VraiDiouf said:
Being an installer of Car Audio, I would have to say the best midranges to get are MBQuarts. These speakers have been proven to even outclass BOSE, Focal, Nakamichi, etc. They are the best quality. If you want Luxury car sound or better in your car, go for MBQuart. For Bass, and for nice treble sound.
Not ot take anythng away from MB but It's all a matter of opinion - the fact that you install does not make you or anyone an authority on what sounds the best. We all have our preferences based on our "Ear" - This is "food for thought" only - I don't wish to debate or start anything with this post -
Here are a few comments (awards) from the Focal group found on their website -

11/18/02:
The official results from IASCA have been released
and FOCAL has once again dominated:
In Sound Quality, FOCAL is the #1 manufacturer used by the winners, with a stunning 25% of winners having FOCAL installed in their vehicles

and from 2003

We are very pleased to announce that the FOCAL 165 V2 has won the 2003/2004 EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) Award in the Loudspeaker category.

The EISA awards are selected by a jury representing 50 specialized magazines in more than 20 European countries and the winning products are chosen by evaluating their technology, features, design, absolute quality, and their value for money.
For more information please go to EISA's awards page:

Quiz time!

Well, I would fail - I have heard the focals and the MB's only in actual vehicles (where it counts) - and I think you know what i prefer.
I'm no expert (that i am sure of) but I really found the focals to be incredible and I am yet to hear anything that out matched them (again, form my limited experience).
VabooM - good point on who actually competes at the shows -
