    Components: Focal Access or Focal Polyglass?

    I'm debating between these two component sets for the install of my front speakers in a 2001 Honda Civic. Is there a reasonable difference in midrange/clarity/overall sound quality between these two sets? I've never dealt with Focal. The reason I ask is because there is a significant difference in price and I'm curious if its worth it. Going to be giving them 60 - 70W RMS. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I have owned both Access and Polyglass sets before getting my K2Ps. I would have to say Polyglass sound alot better than the Access. I had the Polyglass 165 v1 components in my old Honda Accord running off a US amps 200 sounded very good. I would look into the Polyglass Vr they are Focals newer sets. And YES the price differance is worth it IMO.

    Focal Vr's would probably be your best bet. It will allow you to upgrade the amp a bit before you upgrade speakers if you want.

    Well I think the Utopia's might be a bit above what he was wanting to spend.
