View Full Version : Focal vs Rainbow

05-13-2005, 06:54 PM
I went to tweater today and for the first time heard a pair of Focal 165k2p speakers and was really impressed by the way that they sounded. Now my question is how do these speakers compare to the Rainbow Profi Vanadium line and which would you guys put in your car...

As a prior Focal owner the Rainbows are going to have more midbass..

Focal has a harsher tweeter.. I have owned 4 sets of Focals and to be honest..

Once I heard DLS I ditched Focal.. I sold my DLS iridiums a bit ago and I am now in the market for some Rainbow CMX's..

Even a pair of Helix if I can find a dealer..

If I had to buy a pre-built compontent set, it would be nothing other than Rainbow. That's all.

hmmmm CMX's :drool: That Cal25 Titanium tweet is no joke.

My dealer put together an active set in his personal car recently-- The Power line CS Cal27VAF silk tweeter along with a Profi Phaseplug 6.5 "mid- that freggin tweet has to be loudest and smoothest silk i've had the pleasure of hearing.
