View Full Version : OCS.COM out of Focal, now I need to buy something else. Help me pick a 6.5" Comp Set!

The Focal 165K2's I was going to buy were $379. They sent me an email saying that they won't be in for 7-10 weeks. This *****.

Soooo, right now I have a $379 credit at www.onlinecarstereo.com. I can either choose another set or get a refund. Getting a refund would **** because of the time involved in them getting me back my money, but whatever I gotta do.

OCS.com doesn't have much else I like. Although I was looking at Infinity Perfect 6.1 (great reviews on their website), Rockford Fosgate X162S (no reviews) and MB Quart PCE-216 (ALSO great reviews). I am still not sure.

What would you guys do? Pick one of the above and have my stuff NOW (and I hate to wait) or get my money back and delay my new speakers at least a couple of weeks? Of course then I'd have to start all over with my research.

BTW, whatever I choose- I will bet getting the matching 4" for the rear. Thanks for your input!

Well, instead of waiting for the Focal's to come back in stock, I decided on the MB Quart PCE-216 here...

AND the MB Quart DKE-110.

For the price of my front Focal's I managed to swing my front AND rear sets of speakers. I know this set probably won't compare to the Focals but I can't see waiting 4-10 weeks, no way. If I find that I do not like them, I will sell them off and upgrade later on.

Thanks for your help guys!
