I'm looking at a set of 165A3 - Focal 6.5" + 4" Access 3-Way Component Speakers for my 93 Toyota 4Runner. I will be putting the 6.5" and tweeter in a Q-Form kick panel and the 4" in the factory dash speaker location.

Tweeter Type: Inverted Dome
Tweeter Material: Aluminum
Woofer Cone Material: Fiberglass
Woofer Surround Material: Butyl
Crossover Type: 12/12dB/oct (300Hz-4kHz)
Sensitivity (dB): 90
Frequency Response (hz): 55-20
RMS Power Handling (watts): 80
Peak Power Handling (watts): 160
Impedance (ohms): 4

They will be powered by an RE AUDIO XTX800.4

RMS Power (4Ω@14.4V): 60 W x 4
RMS Power (2Ω@14.4V): 90 W x 4
RMS Bridged Power (4Ω): 180 W x 2
SN Ration: < 90 dB
THD: 0.05 %
Efficiency: 80 %
Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 30 KHz(+/-1 dB)

I will be putting a matching 6.5" compo set in the rear and a 10" sub for bass.

What do you think of this set up?
Budget is $500 or less for a set.
Is this a good choice?

I listen to mostly rap/hip-hop and I'm aiming for SQ in my speakers..


Thank you,
Marc

If you're planing to listen to rap/hip hop, it's really just a waste of funds. You won't notice the difference between that set up and a decent 2 way component set up.

Rap/HipHop is much easier on speakers because there's less complexity to the sound. You don't need to worry about midbass, boominess, etc. You'd be just as well to buy a decent set of JBL components or something and save yourself a lot of money.

You don't think I'd notice a difference between a mid-range set of Focal's and a lower end compo set?

What set would you recommend that sounds good with rap/hip-hop? I'll be running a 10" RE SE sub.
