What are the prices of each?

04-29-2005, 12:08 AM
focal's are around 210
bostons are around 190

Yeah. It really all comes down to your personal preference. For me I wasn't a fan of the Focal's tweeter. But that's a very subjective thing. I think both would do fine on the power you said you'd give em.

that's one thinkg i'm trying to figure out the differnce b/w the two tweeters and crossovers...

04-29-2005, 12:37 AM
the bostons too me are more laid back/smoother but the focal is more detailed and has a warmer midbass (at least when both are enclosed) this is a tough choice imho

04-29-2005, 12:40 AM
I agree, i know the bostons are extremely smooth and very "light" .. I'm not sure if i can risk that w/having a 13w7 ported in my back, maybe if i had a 10w7 the bostons might be a good choice..... Also w/me moving my infinity kappa perfects to the back I don't want to have to adjust gains too much on them from having their tweeter overshadow the bostons BUT whatever i get b/w the two listed above the perfects might end up in the back w/the tweeter cut down some - the way my car is setup the rear speaker is right in ur ear (center of car).

i'll have to ponder more about that (got 1-2 days to think).

i think either one would have alot of trouble keeping up with the sub in a jam session with that sub but at reg volumes both great

got rear fill to help out in times of need :)

04-29-2005, 01:12 AM
if you really let the sub wang ? i bet it would drown out the other speakers alot lol

04-29-2005, 01:38 AM
i'm not 100% all bass i'm 100% LOUD QUALITY.... i consider all sub and no highs or mids CRAP...

it will beat and my highs will keep up, if i got to make changes i will, we will soon find out in a few weeks.
