Audiophile quality

Crutchfield customer from Menasha, WI on 10/1/2019

Truly audiophile quality sound from these speakers. I demoed a lot of speakers and none came close to being as clean and clear as these Focals. The build quality and materials are truly exceptional. These are worth the extra money.

Pros: Extremely clear and open with very detailed highs.

Cons: I would say price, but you get what you pay for so no regrets here.

The hype is real! Any other speaker just sounds like a speaker, these Focal speakers are a portal into a new dimension of sound. They are incredibly detailed and crisp with beautiful imaging, they really bring any music to life.

Pros: Beautiful imaging.

Cons: None.

Solid Performance for the price

Crutchfield customer from Denver, CO on 9/17/2018

2005 Honda S2000

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed in an 05 S2000. had to glue the tweeters to the mount rather than using the original screw however the woofers clear the window glass using the Modifry speaker rings. Sounds great with the crossover set to default (-3db). Not harsh with great bass response and fantastic detail. Running off a 14w/ch head unit however they could use amplification which I will add in the future. The cross over leads are quite short which is a downside. but otherwise, finish and build quality is exactly as one would expect from this price point and I feel the performance also lives up to expectations.

Pros:

Cons:

These speakers sound amazing. The mids are neutral but just a little bit laid back. At first I wasn't pleased with the sound of the tweeters but later realized that the crossovers come set to -3db from the factory. After popping off the cover and flipping the switch, they came to life. I'm driving them with an old 4 channel Alpine amp and I couldn't be much happier. My setup at home uses MartinLogan electrostats just to give a reference of my preferred sonic signature.

Pros: Flat and accurate response

Cons: Crossover shipped with tweeter attenuated

Sonic Ecstacy

Ben S from Buford, Ga on 5/4/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Wow I bought these for a little better front stage, moving my Polk MMs to the rear for fill. I loved the sound of the Polks but they were just lacking a tad in the mid range. These fulfilled what was missing and beyond. Hands down the best speakers I've heard. I still wish I could afford the K2s but I'd have a hard time imagining they sound much better then these.

Pros: Full spectrum of sound, hefty mid woofers, Crystal clear sound at any volume

Cons: Wish they had a little longer wire on the crossovers. That's it

Focal componets

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After having these for about a week now all I can say is WOW! Amazing clarity and and can handle plenty of power. I have these hooked up to an arc audio amp I did not use the supplied crossover I just used what is built into the amplifier and am running them on the full setting. These things are amazing have excellent mid range bass and the tweeters are ear piercing to say the least. The detail in all types of music that I now hear is just unreal. These are high priced speakers but when you want the best you have to pay and I assure you that you will not be disappointed!

Pros: Sound quality will set these apart from 9 out of 10 components put up against them.Detail to craftsmanship. They offer cones which can be used to set the tweeters in to mount which gives some versatility to set ups.

Cons: Price is steep for small speakers. No a fault of Focal but the speaker brackets I received were smaller than the speaker, I used a Dremel tool to grind away the tabs on the inside of the bracket to allow room for the speaker to fit. Second I did not receive the installation sheet that was supposed to be sent with the order.

Amazing Sound

Eric from Kansas City, MO on 9/17/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Just demo'd these against JL, Polk, Memphis and Alpine. Really there isn't any comparison. I even pitted these against higher end Focal components and they were right there. When comparing them with JL's equivalent there was no comparison to my ear and preference. JL is great. I'm having there amp and W3V3 sub installed along with he HD900 amp but for component speakers they didn't hold a light to the quality of sound. They are more money but the sound is worth it if that's what you are going for. Focal has some crazy stuff but the quality and materials will tell you why the $. Get what you pay for.

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: little pricey for small component speakers.
