I am trying to decide on a new comp set. Right now I am running Dyn 2 ways. I have had these for a year now and they just are not doing it for me anymore. Don't get me wrong they are fantastic speakers, but they are just too laid back for the majority of music that I listen to, house and techno.
I have come the realization that I want a more aggressive front stage. I thought I was into SQ, but the very few cars that I have heard that were aimed torward SQ sounded dull and boring to me. They did stage really well though. I want to be able to recreate the sound of night club with a really good gound system in my car. Think EAW, Function One or Phazon if you know what those are. I am there with my sub bass.
Now I know everyone is going to say to go out and listen to all the comps you can before you make a decision. Well, not very many shops have high end comps set up that you can listen to on a sound board let alone in an actual car.
I spoke to my dealer yesterday and told him what sound I wanted from a comp set. This guy deals with pretty much every major brand there is, he sold me the Dyns, and his suggestion without hessitation was the Focal 165K2P's. Well of course he did not have them set up for me to listen to.
So yesterday after work I went to a few shops to listen to some sets. Morel and DLS sound to much like the DYN's to me. Two of the shops that I went to are Focal dealers, but neither of them had the K2Ps set up. They both had the 165KPs set up though. I thought these were pretty **** good. These have that agressive sound that I am looking for. I have read several places that the tweet is ear bleeding bright. Well I did not hear that.
So after listening to these and reading the comparisions on here to Rainbow's Profi line I am torn as to which set to get.
Does the Rainbow have that same aggressive sound that the Focal's have?
If you have stuck through and read all this, I appreciate it.
