Hi everyone, i'm about buying component, rear speaker and 4 chan amp.
I'm 99% sure about the amp, an ARCaudio 4050-XXK.
For component and rear speaker, i can get ;
1)front=Focal 165KF; K2 woofer with polyglass crossover and tweeter rear= 6.5 access

2)front=DLS Iridium 6.2 rear= DLS MS6

I can get these two setup for almost the same price. What you think i shoulg buy?
thank you and sorry for my poor english.

where are u located? your english is very good:) I have listened to the focals sets and the dls sets (dls on a daily bases). I have also seen alot of reviews from mags in the USA and In other countries and all the test the dls sets always came out on top or tied. I prefer the sound of the dls set myself. Awesome sq on the iridium set, one of the best i have heard. The focals are a little "hotter" sounding than the dls set . If your after the Hotter brighter sound with sq the focal set will suite u perfect. If u want a natural sounding set that will have excellent sq the iridiums will do perfect.

No better match than Rainbow to an Arc amp.....but yes I'd prefer the DLS sound to Focal myself

I think focal's put out some of the best midrange possible. Thats why I would choose them

I look at the rainbow line, but they are much expensive than dls and focal..
I think i'm going with 165KF in front and DLS ms6 in rear. :)

i would take DLS anyday over focal, although i have never heard the DLS iridiums i know some very knoweldgable SQ comptetitors who stand behind this set.
The Focals however are nice, but not THAT great.
and remember, its all in the install.
