I currently have a set of Focal Performance PS165 Components in my kick panels. Had them installed in a friends Escape. They sound great. But now that I have them in Q-Logic Kick Panels, meaning they aren't sealed up, I was wondering what people thought about the two. I know there is a price difference with the HSK 165 XL being about $150 more.
I run Focal all around. Focal Utopia's in the doors and Focal K2p comps in the rear with the tweeter switched out from the metal dome tweeter to a Digital Design T1 silk dome tweeter. I have always liked Focal, but I have been wanting to try the Hertz Audio HSK 165 XL comps. The Utopia's are wanting more power than what I am sending them, so I might upgrade to a larger amp from my current amp that does 125wrms @ 13.8v @ 4 ohm. Wish these speakers were 2 or 3 ohm comps so I could get more power out of the amp to send to the Utopia's, which I have sent 250wrms to each side of my Utopia's and they really shined, got loud, took the power well and sounded great
This was in my 2008 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLE2, but unfortunately, a car pulled out infront of me while I was going 65 on the highway about 30 yards ahead of me and I swerved, lost control, rolled the truck 4 times without hitting her and totaled the truck. I would have killed her if I would have hit her no doubt as she was driving a Ford taurus, yet she gled So I'm looking into the NNBS 200u+ Tahoe or preferably the Yukon, but would be sweet if I could find a good deal on a Yukon XLT so I can have some extra room for a larger sub stage.
So what do you guys think? The Focal PS165's sound great. I could have the option of selling the Hertz Audio or the PS165's to a friend if I like one better than the other, plus I would like to run Focal's all around.
Ok, got off topic there for a minute. Didnt know if I should post this in the SQ thread or the General thread. Would be nice if CACO would have a Speaker section, Subwoofer section and an amplifier section.
I'm going to post the same thread in the SQ Section as I don't quite know which is the correct section to post question in and which would get more responses. So I apologize for the double post in two different sections.
So if anyone has experience with both, please chime in.
