    Boston Acoustic Pro50 vs Focal 130v1

    Ive narrowed it down to these 2 sets of components in 5.25 for my bmw. Ill be running them off a kicker 650.4 so im not sure which would be better with that amp. Price wise the focals will cost me 130 and the BA 170. I listen to all sorts of music so i need something that will be accurate and sound nice and wont be harsh at high volumes. I have no local shops to listen to any of them so thats why i ask you guys. Thanks

    I've heard the 6.5" of both of those and I'd take the Bostons

    I love my Pro 60's. I say boston from experience, but Focal may be better, never heard them
    But Boston FTW!

    Mine handle lots of power grealy. Im using a lanzar vibe 286 And they rarely get stinky at full tilt. Id imagine the Pro 50's can handle almost as much.

    Both are good sets of comps, the Pro's are 3 ohms so that will draw more wattage from your amp if that makes any difference for you.

    Boston Pro will be the better choice if the other option are those Focal polyglass series; no question/confusion about that. K2P's would be more comparable.
