$350 for K2P's is an incredible deal even for the used ones. Grab them and run. One tiny issue is that they like at least 150 wrms a side.

Quite a few people here swear by Focal. I have DLS UP6's at the moment and have heard 2 SQ Focal cars, leaning towards getting them.

A user here named SASHA might chime in soon, pretty knowledgeable about focal stuff (as are others here of course).

Cheers

John

EDIT; Sigh...someone types "Focal" and he knows about it...his ears start to tingle...

Thanks.My only hesitation is counterfeiting.Their shipping from Malasia from an E-bay seller.People have told me that the K2p's counterfeits are everywhere.

I am pretty sure they are fake, as pretty much all sold on Ebay from Asian countries.
