I got a dollar on Focal M series
Because I’ve talked a lot of trash in the past about this brand because the hype isn’t all ppl make it.... it’s just speakers , however after about 15 sets of these Ms now in different cars , damm there just special ..... better then the old utopiaswhy the tease man?? lol
Glad to see you back around man! You should get some pics of your current install!And nope, won’t cross it lower ..... maybe I’ll take it to 1k . Although beefy for a 3.5” , the stevens take power just fine down low and have plenty of detail..... the stevens sound every bit as good no doubt
For me I wanted a 3.5” that can play more on axis and do the high midrange a little better then a 6.5can , it’s simply laws of physics has has nothing to do with the quality of the Stevens driver..... it has everything to do with cone size and angular geometry
I would smoke this thing in a week if I crossed it lower lol
perfectly! There are truly a match made in heaven, all of the utopias I’ve installed have had a very distinct sound that’s really really good between 1.6 K and 5K,How well do they hang sensitivity-wise with the Stevens SA6? Can they keep up?
I've always had a hard time wrapping my head around lower sensitivity mids being sandwiched in between high-ish sensitivity midbass (SA-6 w/ 90db @1w) and obviously the ridiculous sensitivity of HLCDs (108 @ 1w for instance). Somehow in there we throw something like the 3.5wm from focal that has 88 @ 2.83v which according to my calculations is ~83db @ 1w/1m. According to its spec sheet we only can throw "max power" of 100w at it which gives us 103db. Not much for dynamic range for our mids.it matches sensitivity wise perfectly though.... I haven’t had to adjust to the levels on either set before tuning. Coming in at 88db and the sa6 at 91db , it’s kind of perfect as far as your tilt goes and having some efficiency to burn in the midbass to correct for extreme comb filters by eq cuts..
Are usually don’t pay much attention to sensitivity numbers though because all of that changes once you start using equalizers and mounting them anywhere except for in maybe I’ll football field
the new epique M-mag 7”Jesus that's a ton. What speaker is that?
