Anyone knows if the Focal 165KR is already available?

And also the 165KR2 and 165KRX2.

You may already know this or you may not care, but Focal doesn't authorize any of their products to be sold on the Internet.

No matter what the Internet retailer says, no factory warranty.

I really like the new tweeter in the KR's. It's a big improvement, IMHO.

Look, I'm really not wanting to jack your thread, but did you even open the link I posted?

NON ARE LEGIT!

Focal does NOT AUTHORIZE ANYONE to sell their products online. If you buy it online there is NO WARRANTY from Focal.

Don't believe me, call Jesse McKindley of Focal USA at 1-888-340-4403. Ask him what websites or stores are authorized to sell Focal online.

In order for our high standards to be met, we do not authorize our Focal dealers to sell Focal-America's products online as those found online may be of uncertain origin.

Therefore, Focal-America assumes no responsibility and will not provide after sale service, support or warranty coverage for any of our products that have been purchased through unauthorized retailers, or that have serial numbers removed, erased or have otherwise been tampered with.

Our authorized dealers offer a full factory warranty on all Focal-America products. Focal-America Products obtained with removed, erased or tampered with serial numbers do not have any factory warranty. Every Focal component of every Focal product has a serial number. The serial number is really the I.D. of the product, its certificate of origin. If we don't have that I.D. we simply cannot verify the productís authenticity.

Actually his original post asked if they were available ONLINE, but it appears that he edited it on 2-4-09. 3 days after the original post was made, and removed the "online" portion of his question.

Guess that's what I get for not quoting him.

So yes, My response did relate to his original question.

buy them online and then buy a warranty from www.squaretrade.com and call it good.

i got them at AMS in madison/fitchburg http://www.ams-mad.com
I got them as a direct exchange for my Hertz Milles that crapped out on me. I never heard the old k2p set but i heard the other focal metal tweets and i would take the kevlar any day of the week. If you go, talk to Paul(i think hes the owner) he said they just got those in at a pretty low early buy-in price so he will probably cut you a pretty good deal.

the ones online are either stolen or fake. the online price is WAY below dealer cost.

We also just got ours in at Stay Tuned Customs in Waukesha, WI. AMS is another great shop as well. I haven't had a chance to hear them yet, but they look great. How did you like your Milles before they crapped out? I personally like the TN 52 tweeters they previously had and never cared for the Be tweeters all that much. Let me know how you like the new focals please.

I loved my milles. I like a more laid back sound to my comps and the milles were spot on when it came to that. I probably would've liked them a little more if they were getting a little more power( i only had 200x2@4) So far i love the focals. They are still breaking in so the midbass keeps getting better each day. Im still trying to find the best place for the tweeters though. Im waiting till it warms up a little to mess around with that though. right now i have the tweets where my mille tweets were, on the dash. The focals dont really sound that great up there so they may go in my doors, idk. Theyre in an integra btw.

I'm an authorized retailer for Focal... Unfortunately, I don't have the 09's just yet, I have to sell-through my 165KF/KPS first.

Oh I see.. I waited almost 3 weeks before mine arrived. My local dealer was very eager to push the old models too. :D
