Hey guys, I joined this forum a little while back to ask about my Memphis 6x9s and got some great advice. I'm getting a new truck in a few months though and will be giving my old setup to the wife so I can take a step up in the new ride. I'm off to Fort Benning in a couple months and I'm looking to get this done soon before I head off for training.
A little while after I bought my old system I heard the Focals in the shop and fell in love. Now that I'm shopping for my next speakers, I just need to figure out now which set works for me. I listened in store the other day and have basically 3 options:
165KRC, 165VB, and 165KR2/KRX2
I understand that the KRC is a coax and the VB and KR2s are comps, but based on my listening preferences I'm not sure which one works best for me. I'm all about sound quality, but I've stayed away from components in the past because tweeters generally make my ears bleed and I love me some deep bass. I've always had a 15" sub in the trunk and gotta have bass--I'll be getting a Ram 1500 Quad Cab though, so I'll probably switch over to a couple 10s on the subwoofer side.
Basically I realize that the KR2s are the highest end of these three, but I'm afraid the tweeter being too piercing for my ears. With the KRC being a coax higher up on the food chain than the VB component, between those two would it be best to go with the lower end component over the higher end coax?
It isn't that money is no object, but I want something that I won't want to upgrade a few years from now and that I can be happy with for the next decade or so. With the setup right now (if I only go with one 10") sub I'm planning on running a JL HD 900x5 to the speakers and sub.
Any thoughts on these speakers (and tweeters)? Thanks in advance for the help.
