So I am just curious I have seen these speakers a few times and been wondering has anyone heard them? Or know someone who has heard them? Let me know your opinion on them.

I've heard that tweeter on the JMLabs floorstanders and honestly, I'm not a fan.

I'd rather use Audio Technology, ScanSpeak, or Hybrid stuff before that :)

Find a local shop that carries Focal, they will be sure to help you out far more than Crutchfield or a forum ever can.

Wow Crutchfield sells Focal these days? And the top level Utopia Be at that? Never would have guessed...

I heard these in a Focal competition vehicle at CES 2009, they had a screachy tone to them from 2KHz-9KHz, the midbass was ok, not the best. This is just my opinion.

If they were screachy then they were properly tuned. I've had them in my vehicle and have heard them in a few other vehicles and when properly tuned they sound fantastic. They take about 20 hrs to break in and sound really good.

On the crutchfield comment, they should offer shipping and installation guide free for the $5,200 price tag on it.
