As of now, I have only heard the Focals at my local shop. I am familiar with Dynaudio's home studio monitors which are friggin amazing sounding (I actually use Yamaha HS80M's for everyday listening in the house) but I never heard their car speakers. And finally, I keep hearing so much about Hertz and their MLK 165 set. They are $200 more expensive than the Focal K2P's though.
Next week I plan on putting some money down on the set I choose. As of now, since the Focal's were the only set I've heard ($700), they are the front runner.
I hear that Hertz speakers sound awesome and are a bit smoother (tweeters), but not as detailed mids as the focals? (I can go demo some in Philly but that is an hour drive for me)
If you have heard both (or dynaudio as well), which would you say is comparable to old school MB Quart comps (circa late 90's)? Which has that full, rich, detailed midrange sound?
I listen to a LOT of electronic (think Hird, Kruder & Dorfmeister, or Theivery Corporation when I say Electronic) and Chillout/Lounge music as well as some R&B, Jazz, and Hip Hop.
FYI, I will be getting an amp in a month or so to run whichever set I end up with.
Oh yeah, an important note, I like to listen to my music pretty loud when my kids aren't in the car. So I don't want a speaker that sounds harsh or easily distorts at high volume. Also, I don't want to have to strain to hear details when the volume is turned down a bit lower.
