    If you power those well with the tweets up high then it should be enough music for everybody.

    Rear - CDT CL 6.25x
    Amps- Memphis 16 mc 4.50, 16mc1.500

    Is that a typo? Woofersetc has the 165 KF for $299 (I don't see a "KFS").

    I've not heard that model, but I like every other focal speaker I've heard. Very good brand. Shop around, also look at Dynaudio and Morel.

    Make sure to give them good power, like one of the Sundown amps above. Anyone who would power those speakers off the H/U should have his hands stapled to his face.

    Make the focals fit with spacers and custom mounts. I have CDT's. They are good, but the focals are in a higher class with Dynaudio's and Morels. Spend your money on good front components and good install to make them fit. Skip the rear fill.

    Re: Focal speakers

    Are the CDT HD series good components? Or would you go with image dynamics?
