Or how about something like:

CTX65CS - Image Dynamics 6.5" (http://www.woofersetc.com/p6201/CTX65CS--Image-Dynamics-65"-Component-Speaker-System.htm)

I have those Alpines. Great bang for your buck speakers. The tweeters give a nice warm sound, but the midbass is pretty soft. If you're looking between those two, it should be a pretty easy choice based on the tweeters. The focals give a bright, possibly harsh sound. The alpines give a laid back, warm sound.

I'd go with the CTX65cs's.

I'd go with the CTX65cs's.

I think I might just do that. Is it worth purchasing any of these while still using the HU amp?

I ran a Cerwin Vega Vega 6.5 component set off my Eclipse deck for a while back in 2000 before my amp came in. Sounded great but at higher volumes you could tell it wanted more power.
