Im wanting to run 2 pairs in a 4 door 2500 chevy, im not too knowledgeable on the whole component scene. Ive just seen hertz goin around the forum and im wondering how they do? ive also had my eyes set on the Focal Polyglass Setups. They will be powered by a Hifonics Olympus btw.

how are they loudness wise? because i know i will have alot of power coming out of that olympus? hows the midbass?

i normally like to run my stuff in 2 ways loud with the highpass filter set on my avic-d3 and then sq wise one of the staging features and the HP filter off (set on the amp too tho).

midbass really good you just have to invest money on dynamat. ive done some cars with a set of one pair of the mlk165 and that was more than enough.

for a front stage, I would recommend 1 set of Hertz MLK165 over 2 pairs of HSK165...That is from personal experience. If you are going to spend that much though, look into the Morel Dotech Ovation 6. They are a tad cheaper and get much deeper than the MLK mid will retaining pretty much everything else.

i beg to differ, go to any car audio reviews and the mlk's are being compared to higher end morel and rainbows

I have plenty of experience with both lines and I'll stick to my guns. :veryhapp:

I owned the MLK165 for over 2 years so I know exactly what they are capable of with a proper install.

nope cuz im also a focal dealer, avi dealer, arc audio dealer but i know for the price the mlk's are well worth it. btw morel just closed down one of their distributor cuz things arent going great for them

Don't get me wrong, the MLKs are very nice... I would put them in my top 5 favorite component sets any day. I am just saying he should consider the Dotech as well. Hearing both in the same vehicle, with the same power, I can say both have their upside. Even though you are a dealer etc etc have you REALLY heard what they have to offer right next to a dotech set? Im gonna say no since you keep referring to car audio review etc... I am talking from real experiences here. BACK TO BACK both have advantages and disadvantages.

ok :rolleyes:... If you ever come to Houston you give me a call.

If you think Morel's tweeters are their downfall, you have a long way to go buddy.

oh really? dammm ...i put the Ultimo sub on my wish list next for next year hahah.


Get a set of focal Utopia no.7 and call it a day :D hahahaha :veryhapp:


I'll vote for MLK 165, with proper install and the right amp and power, it'll get real good, mid and tweeters are very natural for my tastes. Of course midbass is darn strong, so i put 2 layers of dynamat on my doors now.

I heard the MLK165s and the midbass was great.

I have also heard them and I too was impressed by the mid bass. It was low and solid, but I also noticed that the midrange wasn't as good. For the price of the MLKs I would suggest a set of K2Ps. The low end is great and the clarity and detail of the midrange is hard to beat.

Oh and they can get loud just make sure you seal the doors really good front and back.

Yea I just got my K2P's and I'm in the break in process (Focal recommends 3 weeks!) I'm listening to my music at a medium level and so far the highs are so loud and clear they blow away my old c5s. I have about the same amount of midbass (doors deadened) and I can't wait for them to fully loosen up. I want more midbass!

Yea they need about 20 hours of play time to break in. I noticed a subtle increase in SQ not much but definitely noticeable. After that it's pure audio heaven.:)
