    Focal all the way!

    But it will be better to audition both speakers that way you know which one sounds best to you.

    Don't get alpine components, the only good alpines are the overpriced ones.

    IMO the 177a's are not overpriced. You can get them for 200 off ebay, and they are some of the best sounding speakers i've heard, though I know there are better. They have a very nice crossover, and for 200 bucks I think its a very good deal.

    I agree.

    A very nice speaker set and $200 is right around what most entry/mid levels cost these days.
