    Hands down an amazing speaker! I like my bostons a little more then those but they Focals had a little better clarity to them! You can't go wrong w/ them. They are some amazing speakers!!!!!

    My favorite speakers in the price range... the sound just blooms from them.

    Wish I could find something as good for a lower price.

    I have 2 sets of them in my HHR with a Focal V2 11" sub. They are a very natual open sounding speaker, very accurate. If that's what you are looking for , they can't be beat!

    Re: New focal

    The Focal's online are not by authorised retailers. Focal will not sell online, so those that have them are second stock or insurance writeoffs. Becareful of what you get online.

    as far as the speakers go, I will run Focal from now on. Amazing clarity! Amazing detail! Tonal accuracy is incredible. Just speaker placement will dictate the overall satisfaction.

    Re: New focal

    Actually, not only are we dealing with second-run Focal products on-line, but absolute COUNTERFEITS too. Apparently, a company in HK or mainland China, has "cloned" the Focal drivers... many of the ones you see sold from HK, are these clones.

    Same thing as when Usher Audio cloned the Scan-Speak stuff... just that the Focals are being improperly sold "as the original stuff" as opposed to just making another brand name, as they SHOULD...

    Regards,
    Gordon.

    There was a dateline on counterfeits, they said 1-3 items sold in China/HK/Taiwan are fake.
