Of these, which would you prefer? Will be running 2 sets on the front of my DLS Ultimate A5. Wont be a ton of power so it will definately need to be efficient. I would like clear sound, good midbass, and definately as loud as possible. This is the rating of my amp, and with 2 comp sets each channel will be at 2 ohms, so around 50rms per speaker.

4 ohms: 85 watts x 2 chan. + 300 watts x 1 sub chan.
2 ohms: 100 watts x 2 chan. + 500 watts x 1 sub chan.

These are some of the options I was looking at. What would you pick?

Ive heard Focals a couple times and I always liked the bright sound. Hell, I love the way my Selenium ST350 tweeters sound.

Im going to miss not running pro audio. Tonight I hooked up 2 of my 10" Eminence Deltas in my driver door and I was rattling stuff in my garage with vocals alone.

I'd go with the DLS out of your choices, but you should also consider Hertz HSK165's.

the focals are the best u can get on that list overall but the image dynamics would be the best if your on a tight budget

Ive heard mixed reviews about the SS. Now the Kicker QS is out which replaced the SS and those look pretty sweet.

Focals get my vote. Why are you running two sets? They guy selling the Bostons Z's, with that one set would fill your entire car but probably not off of 85 watts :( I feed mine like 300+

The Focals aren't as bright as people say they are if you position them right and tuen them properly. You get very lifelike sounds through them.
