    Assuming I don't get ripped off, I just found a JL 300/4 for $275 and a JL 250/1 for $175 shipped. The 250/1 is perfect, because I'm going to use it to power my W3. I have an Alpine MRV-F340 powering my cabin speakers now, so I'm going to sell that when I install the 300/4. Now, my only problem is finding some good components that are ~100w (and less than $300) for the 300/4 to drive. Any suggestions?

    Focal's website is weird so I can't figure out the difference between all the models in their different lines. Also, do they have good midbass? I see they only cover 60Hz - 20KHz, so I'm afraid they won't have enough low end for me. That and they cost an obscene amount.

    I see some MB Quarts on Sonic Electronix for a good price, not sure which sound best though.

    mb's are bright/harsh...and IMO lack midbass.
