If you power those well with the tweets up high then it should be enough music for everybody.

those focal are like $340 online vs these image dynamics which are $165
If you want cheaper, I would pick up the phoneix gold rsd

I just went to a car audio dealer and this is what they suggested tell me what you guys think. The focals will not fit in my car so I have to go another route.

Front - CDT HD62IM
Rear - CDT CL 6.25x
Amps- Memphis 16 mc 4.50, 16mc1.500
Sub- - Image Dynamics IDQv3

What do you guys think?

Is that a typo? Woofersetc has the 165 KF for $299 (I don't see a "KFS").

I've not heard that model, but I like every other focal speaker I've heard. Very good brand. Shop around, also look at Dynaudio and Morel.

Make sure to give them good power, like one of the Sundown amps above. Anyone who would power those speakers off the H/U should have his hands stapled to his face.

Make the focals fit with spacers and custom mounts. I have CDT's. They are good, but the focals are in a higher class with Dynaudio's and Morels. Spend your money on good front components and good install to make them fit. Skip the rear fill.

Are the CDT HD series good components? Or would you go with image dynamics?

i never heard cdt so i can't say. I love those image dynamics( gonna pick up a set myself) really can't beat those id for the money. Focal is overrated imo about how good there speakers are when really i didn't like them
