    Re: Focal Polyglass 165VR Midbass

    I agree it is a very fair price no doubt, however if it was a "steal" they would not be here 2 months later in october... good luck.

    The price is quite low, especially for their condition and low usage. It has more to do with the demographic and the market conditions, but I appreciate your well wishes.
