Hey,

I am really interested in the Focal 165 VB, but they aren't anywhere to be found on any of the big internet sellers like sonic or wooferinc....

Are these old? :confused:

Thanks as always!

try a local sound shop, supposedly crutchfield is the only "authorized" internet retailer. I got mine at a local sound shop, not the model you're after, mine are 165 A1's for about $300, haven't heard the VB. www.focal-america.com will help you find a local retailer
