Hey guys, I wanted to know what you guys think of the Focal 165V2 or the 165Ca. I know one is coax and the other component, but I was at CarToys and to be honest the 165Ca sounded a little better on the wall. Problem is I found a set of the 165Ca's online for $100 while CarToys wanted $230! Anyways, if I were looking to spend a max of maybe $300 for a set of speakers, what do you think? I really don't wanna spend that much, but if something is that good for that much I might. The other brands I am thinking about is CDT, the Elemental Designs component set, and the new RE component set. I am looking for the best SQ possible, with good reproductions of mids and highs, as I am soon looking to perhaps adding a sub in sometime in the near future. I really like eD's subs so I figured that their component set would be pretty good as well. I know RE set is too new to know about, but after reading the specs, they seem to be pretty good. And of couse I hear nothing but good things about CDT. How do these brands compare to the Focals I heard and what would you pick? Thanks!
