I'm thinking about getting this set for a 07 camry. my main goal is to get speakers that are going to be loud and clear, and sound good playing all genres of music. My price is under a 1,000 for a set. I relize it personal preference to most, but i have found most shops dont sell hgh end brands and/or dont have them set up for listening.

What price are you getting them for? Focal has a loyal following, but their sound is a matter of taste with many people.

Myself, I would recommend Hertz for great high end sound at a lower cost, or even Rainbow audio. Focal in my book is a touch overpriced.

I'm not going for competition. I just want a great sounding system and a set of componets that can take a beating and not get drowned out by subs.

Well, you should first decide on what you want to spend, Then fit a speaker into that budget for what you are wanting to hear. When you said Focal, I assumed we were talking in a $400-600 budget. You can get a loud set of speakers that have pretty good sound quality for $250. It's all subjective, though. What sounds good to me may sound bad to you. So, a budget choice helps.

My budget for componets is a 1,000. I dunno i thought the more money they are the better. I dont think that sony speakers would sound as good as boston pro's but maybe im just naive.

Is the $1,000 just for speakers or will it be for speakers and an amp? If you go with any of the high end component sets, you'll need an amp to power them.

Stay with the K2P's. They can take a beating and still sound incredible.

I loved my K2P's...wish I had never sold them.

Na, the case of more $$$ = better...isn't always true. I've heard Hertz next to Focal, and can personally say I like the Hertz better. They also beat out Focal in testing last year. For a few hundred bucks less, you get great sound. Not for nothing, but when I hear a great set of $400 components next to a pair of $1000 components, the differences to me are negligible. Certainly not enough to justify $600. It's more important to have your car tuned properly than it is to have it tricked out with $$$$ stuff.

In your budget $1000 for all four doors in the car, or just one set of speakers? If you have $1000 for just a pair, we can start even bring Morel into the equation.

X2 on the Powerline CS set. For under $1,000 shipped, they're pretty impossible to beat for the quality and output capability.

Word. The mids (http://195.243.203.21/rainbow/index.aspx?pm=125111&lan=ENG) are actually based on these subs (http://195.243.203.21/rainbow/index.aspx?pm=13511&lan=ENG). :cool:

Too bad the Seas Lotus RW165 were discontinued. Dollar to performance, great.

I don't think those Powerline CS woofers would fit in his Camry's doors, not without a lot of custom fab work.

That's the one drawback to that comp set.... the mids are just so **** large!

just a 1000 for componets only. I just wanna get a good set that im going to be satisfied with. I have always bostons or jl's for componets and i wanna see if there is anything better out there.

Then I'd say check out Hertz HSK series. Inexpensive great sound.

I run the DLS Ultimate Nobeliums, simply amazing sound to me. Very natural and warm.

What headunit do you plan on running?! Don't just buy some expensive components and skip on quality amps and a deck.

I have a alpine w205 installed right now. I'm not sure on amps but i'm thinking about going with audison amps, as i have heard they are really good.

I vote for the Focals. Great brand.

Powerline set is good as well. Can't go wrong either way you go.
