I can get Focals for $200 more than Rainbows and I was wondering if Focals are worth it? Only sound system I had in my life was Focal Utopia 165W in my old car and I loved it but I never heard Rainbows or any other sound systems.

Do any of you have either? Maybe someone that has had or heard both? What do you think?

I installed myself in deadened doors. Daddyos doesnt really seem like a good place IMO. Im in Mandarin area near 295.

Yea I installed Utopia 165W myself in deadened door in my old Mazda 626 and I haven't really heard anything about daddyos but can i meet you up maybe on friday or this weekend to listen to your system? I prob can't do tomorrow because of the national championship game.

The k2p's would be better than the slc set - whether that is worth 200$ to you is something only you can judge, though. Once you get into that price range, i'd be looking to compare the germaniums to the k2p's rather than the SLC's...i'd buy a set of germaniums before a set of focal k2p's.

I'm buying them used off of forum members so I have no choice (if germaniums are more new).. on a side note... I could also maybe buy zapco ck 16.2 comps for aroudn 450.. what do you think?
