    Focal 165V3e????????? Anybody?

    I have listened to these on a wall and they sound good, i know they will sound different in a car set up and was looking for someone who might have had some experience with them in the "real world" that might have a comment on their performance. I am currently running focal 690ca1's in the front door and 165ca1's in the rear door powered by an eclipse ea4000 with some tweet's powered off the head unit. I was thinking about going with the Focal 165V3e and ditching the rear door speakers and bridging the amp? any suggestions would be appreciated... Also running a JL500/1 on 2 JL10w3V2's..and have sound deadened all the doors and floor...


    Any Ideas much appreciated!

    I agree with ditching the rears and bridging the amp. I have no experience with Focal though, sorry.

    I havent used that set of focals but I have used the 165kp and looks to be the same tweeter. It was a good setup but the tweeters can be a little harsh for me. Takes some work to get the tweeters setup but once done it sounds good.
