    You may already know this or you may not care, but Focal doesn't authorize any of their products to be sold on the Internet.

    No matter what the Internet retailer says, no factory warranty.

    I really like the new tweeter in the KR's. It's a big improvement, IMHO.

    Look, I'm really not wanting to jack your thread, but did you even open the link I posted?

    NON ARE LEGIT!

    Focal does NOT AUTHORIZE ANYONE to sell their products online. If you buy it online there is NO WARRANTY from Focal.

    Don't believe me, call Jesse McKindley of Focal USA at 1-888-340-4403. Ask him what websites or stores are authorized to sell Focal online.

    Actually his original post asked if they were available ONLINE, but it appears that he edited it on 2-4-09. 3 days after the original post was made, and removed the "online" portion of his question.

    Guess that's what I get for not quoting him.

    So yes, My response did relate to his original question.

    It looks awesome!

    Can you PM me how much did you get them? I am still waiting for my local authorized dealer to get them.

    i got them at AMS in madison/fitchburg http://www.ams-mad.com
    I got them as a direct exchange for my Hertz Milles that crapped out on me. I never heard the old k2p set but i heard the other focal metal tweets and i would take the kevlar any day of the week. If you go, talk to Paul(i think hes the owner) he said they just got those in at a pretty low early buy-in price so he will probably cut you a pretty good deal.
