    howdy im hunter,im finaly getn back in gear with my car audio after a small setback(buyers remorse) im going somwhere for help.I run sound for a southern rock band and want that same sound i get from the mains at the shows.I also instaled home audio for four years at sound advice and instaled car audio for five years,but that was back in the day and realy havent kept up with the trends.on the advice of one of my old instalers i leaped in full on and bought an audison vrx 400 and two focal k2p 165 componet sets two rolls of dinomat and an eclipse 7200 head unit.so off I went took out my alpine deck through in my eclipse and wow,helped alot the 8 volt preout was awsome.next to go my jl 300/4,put in my audison and bam night and day,the audson hands down blew my jl out of the water.at the time i was running old boston acoustic coponents.so i figured time to upgrade armed with two rolls of dinomat and two new focal componet sets i venture out to reach my goals of beter sound,well thats where my story turns.man what a bad day for me!ive heard these same focals in other rides and thats why i bought em.their great speakers but im finding out that you can buy good stuff but sometimes that stuff just doesnt get along together.the focals are way to bright and the mids are too much,the power handling is not up to par with what im wanting eather so one step fward two steps back,im shoping for speakers again.dont get me wrong the focals are great if the amp you use isnt so hot at its ability to reproduce mids would prob sound great on my old jl but my audison already flatens the levels enough without having the focals to help.they have their place in the industry just not what im looking for.great for clasical and most other music at low levels,but just arnt keepn up with the hard southrn rock im pushn through em,so their going to find a beter home for somone who will use them the way they should be used.meantime im lookin for somthine with some balls.the lower end and power handling im lookin for.I like the boston pro and z componets.they got balls,but im not jumping into things to fast again.anybody got any ideas keep in mind i still want some good mids and highs,so im not buyn autobaun crap or cheap *** crapford fosgate,i shouldnt say that ive heard some rockford that sounded prety good.then again im also saying that im not satisfied with focals so price dosent always determine what sounds good.I live in a small town the only time i get to check out anything is when the bands got a show and its hard to get away from them to shop around,im sure theres some guys on here who can make recomendations,I like rock,country,blues,jass and some rap.anyways i need help,eather new speakers or an ear doctor,lol

    Re: back in the game

    notes i took down:

    he got focals, but they have too much mids and highs.

    so he wants new components with more bass and high power handling

    thats what i got from it.

    Howdy I am hunter, I am finally getting back in gear with my car audio after a small setback (buyers remorse) I am going somewhere for help. I run sound for a southern rock band and want that same sound I get from the mains at the shows. I also installed home audio for four years at sound advice and installed car audio for five years.

    That was back in the day and really have not kept up with the trends. On the advice of one of my old installers, I leaped in full on and bought an audison vrx 400 and two focal k2p 165 component sets, two rolls of dinomat, and an eclipse 7200 head unit.

    So off I went took out my alpine deck through in my eclipse and wow, helped allot the 8 volt preout was awesome. Next to go my jl 300/4, put in my audison and bam night and day. The audson hands down blew my jl out of the water. At the time I was running old Boston acoustic components. So I figured time to upgrade armed with two rolls of dinomat and two new focal component sets, I venture out to reach my goals of better sound. Thatís where my story turns. Man what a bad day for me! Iíve heard these same focal in other rides and thatís why I bought em. Their great speakers but I am finding out that you can buy good stuff but sometimes that stuff just doesnít get along together.

    The focal are way too bright and the mids are too much, the power handling is not up to par with what i am wanting. So one step forward two steps back, I am shopping for speakers again. Donít get me wrong the focal are great if the amp you use isnít so hot at its ability to reproduce mids. would probably sound great on my old jl but my audison already flattens the levels enough without having the focals to help. They have their place in the industry just not what i is looking for.

    Great for classical and most other music at low levels, but just arenít keeping up with the hard southern rock i am pushing through them, so their going to find a better home for someone who will use them the way they should be used. Meantime I am looking for something with some balls. The lower end and power handling i am looking for. I like the Boston pro and z components. They got balls, but i am not jumping into things to fast again.

    Anybody got any ideas? Keep in mind i still want some good mids and highs. So i am not buying autobaun crap or cheap *** Rockford fosgate. I shouldnít say that Iíve heard some Rockford that sounded pretty good. I am also saying that i am not satisfied with focals, so price doesnít always determine what sounds good.

    I live in a small town the only time i get to check out anything is when the bands are at a show, and itís hard to get away from them to shop around. I am sure there are some guys on here that can make recommendations I.e., rock, country, blues, jazz and some rap. Anyways i need help. Either a new doctor or new speakers. Lol
