  • Focal beryllium component set

    all I have to say is OMG!!! HOLY HELL!!!

    has anyone else ever seen a set of these yet?

    a friend of mine who is sponsored by Focal, just recieved a set of his for his car this season. the crossover, is rack mounted......for starters......it's about a foot square and about 3-4 inches thick....and has 4 knobs across the front of it that are a good inch in diamater at least.....

    HOLY POOP!

    the speakers come in an aluminum suitcase that's a good 3 feet long, foot wide, and about 6 inches thick....

    it comes tripple packed, with that aluminum case being the third layer

    the mids are INCREDIBLE! so light, so beautiful!

    wow....yeah - so now we're trying to figure out how we can fit a set of these in my car......hehehe

        heh - retail pricing sucks.....

        all I can say is that if I do end up running a set of them, I won't be paying anywhere NEAR full retail

        he got one of the first production sets here in the states....took something like 3 months to get over here after they had finished production....lol

                I had originally wanted to rack mount everything in the back of my car but was stymied by the lack of equipment available in that format that wouldn't require converting from 120 to 12 volt (and the sheer depth of some of the items). The crossovers are really 19" wide? Or do they have ears for mounting them?

                    Wow, thats fricken huge. :P And like 3 inches tall you say? I'd be curious to see how much empty space is in there.

                    I'm the long haired guy that talked to you for a bit with my brother at Texas Showdown BTW, if you remember me. :P

                        Jan, just curious, how much weight did all that stuff you put in the car add? i.e. amps, subs/box, car pc, etc.

                          honnestly, not that much in the grand scheme of things...200#? so .2 second in the quarter....but for the GTi I'm not so worried about weight/speed....our other vehicles and bikes are for that...lol

                            hey just got the beryllium No. 7 just thought you guys would lie some info, the three ways are incredible one cross over covers both pais of components, can be biwired, what they call bi-amping. price about $6k they come in the aluminum case, foam padded and protect inside you also get a seriously cool allen set and a spec sheet with a rta of the system on a specific setting, the pair i received was an almost straight line except for slope increase at the begining. these speakers are ridiculous!!!!!!
