Hey guys, What do you guys think are overall better speakers? I am looking at comparing the Focal K2P Series vs the Hi-Energy series. I like very clean sound (natural and not harsh) not mind shattering sound.

Their prices aren't on their site... so i have no clue how much they cost :( what about their mille series? I guess more of a question is how do they compare to the price difference as well :)

I was a focal dealer for 6 years now a hertz dealer. No Question which speaker I like more And just pick up a car audio mag. You'll See the industry agrees with me. Test after test after test

Not saying that at all. Great speaker set the k2p. But dollar to dollar the hertz just sounds better to Me. K2p vs. Mlk165. Hertz all day Sq is all subjective. Facts. The hertz tweeter loves to play lower then the tn52 I have a/b'ed k2p drivers against the baby Mille and the hertz Midbass was far better same truck same install same amp All we did was swap drivers. The hertz drivers also love power whereas focal seem to not Handle it. For myself if I was a consumer and dollar amount was an Issue it would be mlk165 all day long. As a shop owner I make it a point to carry the best product At any dollar amount meaning if I felt that focal had a better Product than hertz then they would be back in my store Reason is if I don't do this than my competition would have Better for less than I do. And that will never happen. That is what audio innovations is all about. Having the best bang for the buck regaurdless of what "brands" That is. My shop loyality is to the consumer not to some Manu. Hope that made sense

i'm not really an sq guy but i have heard both sets of speakers and i would have to agree, $ for $ the hertz are nicer. the sq in the aifresno hummer is amazing (before the bass knocks your head off).

Is that the best you can do on those? I mean I'm not trying to haggle or anything, I am just curious is all.

i have 2 sets of 165k2p. i love them. Still after 3 years running off of JL 300/2 they still sing. The tweeter is a little on the harsher side of the spectrum but there are those that have been able to tune it to their liking. Havent messed with HERTZ though. So i am biased, but i had to bump up my favorite part of my system.
