Great speakers - short answer yes with a but...
2016 Honda Civic EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The stock audio system that came with my car was ok at normal speed and volume, however at HWY speeds, the lack of "punch" and LFE was becoming far more apparent. I opted to go with the Focals after reading the initial reviews posted here and talking to a few folks that did installs for a living. I will say, my initial impression was the sound in my car now had significantly more LFE sound, at the expense of a more shrill and slightly tinny sound, for at least the first 4 days at least. Now, a week after install, the speakers are slowly being broken in, and the sound is becoming far richer in depth and quality, combined with an improved bass sound, I am actually cancelling plans to add a sub, as my needs for more low end on my car audio has been satisfied. I will add, however, that when I had the speakers added I had my front doors doubled layered with sound-deadening materials, which has made my car quieter (less outside noise) and better equipped to handle door woofer LFE sound while keeping the generated sound within the car for an improved listening experience. While my review should be given due consideration for the additional alterations made to the car, I am now quite pleased with the sound in my car, and am now able to handle a very long commute with ease thanks to the Focal addition to my car sound stage.
Pros: LFE, audio quality, build quality of the speakers
Cons: Takes a few days to break in, they will sound noticeably different within a few days of instillation for the better
