This material, 100 times more expensive than gold, is largely responsible for the sound quality revolution that Focal has created.

berillium is worth 3x as much as pure gold.
maybe that has something to do with it?

So just because someone wishes to buy the speakers you curse them. The reason they cost so much is because they have some of the best sound reproduction I've heard in a speaker. I've had mine for about 3 years now and they sound absolutely incredible. You would really be shocked at how good they sound. I don't have the crossover, but the crossover is very accurate and gives you a lot of control.

Jan and Monte have built a great car. Did you see when they were pulled up on their A-pillar? It was so strong from so many layers the car actually was supported by it.

Can you rephrase that? maybe I didnt see.

I have heard their car numerous times, from their old 3 way setup all the way to their current 4 way setup.

I didn't check out real close last weekend, but I looked in on it and I think I got a few pictures. They are actually part of the crew I compete with. I'm sure you saw several other vehicles that were there from my buddies.

They made another A-pillar and pushed their car so it had the front tire on top of the A-pillar piece (not the one in their car) it actually supported the car until someone sat in it. I was pretty **** impressed with the amount of strength it had.

dam, ******, They must have did that on Saturday. I was their on Sunday. They have a ton of deadening in that car for sure, car is real heavy. Jan was saying they have about 48sqft of black tile in the doors alone and you know how thick those tiles are. When I was listening to her car, when I got in with the door open you could hear all the noise from the outside(people, bass and whatnot) as soon as close that door(heavy door lol) it was like a chamber all the outside noise disappeared. Their car was great! Although I felt their stage was a little diffused at times, I think that was because Jan and monte had it setup for 2 seating. but tonally that car is hard to beat for a daily driver

actual retail of those is even higher than what u see on woofers ect. It's meant to be the best focal has to offers. one guy actually installed 2 sets of these which is sick. I might try it if i have the money.

The guy I know who has a few sets in his car has way too much money for his own good, but hey some people are lucky like that.

Yeah, it was on Saturday that they did that. Jan and Monte's car sounds pretty good from what I hear but I haven't been in it in a while. I think I remember someone hearing that it was missing some impact of the music, but that could be a personal preference.

If by "sick", you mean "complete waste of money", I agree :)

Don't know for sure, but it appears as though it's not stuck down. They probably use it during critical listening and in competition. So, I'd suspect that if the car was a daily driver, it wouldn't be up there?

And if I'm not mistaken, they also use OCF on the back and rear windows during judging.

Ugly or not, I think their results speak for themselves. ;) I'd love to sit in it one day.
