Awesome, sweet, and full sound. The Dolby speakers are a huge bonus and allows me to run 2 amps (1 tube and 1 Dolby) into them.

I recently decided to update my Klipsch Reference Premier speakers in my 7.2.2 system. I really enjoyed how the Klipsch RP series sounded, but mainly out of boredom I decided to make a change. I used have Focal component speakers in my previous car and I remember how great they sounded, especially on the upper end with their super clear and articulate tweeters (but not harsh sounding). I am very happy I made the change as these Focals sound superb in my home theater. Here are my thoughts on the Focals vs the Klipsch RP: 1. The Focal tweeters are a bit smoother and reach higher than the Klipsch. It sounds like there is more 'room' or 'air' around the upper frequencies, but it is smooth and never harsh 2. Voices sound a bit more natural on the Focals, almost like there is someone in the room talking to you 3. The mid bass is not as forward as on the Klipsch RP's, so you hear a little more details within the bass on the Focals. To their credit the Klipsch sound is very entertaining and fun to listen to, but the the Focals flesh out more details. 4. Built in ATMOS speakers do a much better job of bouncing height channel sound from the ceiling. It is amazing how they accomplish this, but Dolby Atmos demos actually sound more realistic than with with the Klipsch RP Atmos toppers. I am very impressed with the Focals. Movies sound amazing especially with Atmos soundtracks, and 2-channel music is incredible with the Focal's sweet upper end. Highly recommended!
Pros: Clear, articulate and open upper end Punchy and deep bass, but never muddy Atmos channel speakers work extremely well
Cons: One of the shipping boxes was beat up and missing the speaker base
