Focal Integration series in my Jet After much deliberation and numerous consultations with the ICE experts, I was COMPLETELY confused about ICEing up the Jet. “Just put components in front and coaxial at the back…no need for amp” “Are you crazy? Components can never really ‘come alive’ without an amp!” “Our Tjet head unit is the pits” “ Oh, c’mmon…it’s not so bad” I don’t think I thought so much even before I got married. (Though one always feels one should have) Finally, I took a call. Focal Integration Series it was for me. They are specially designed to be dropped into the OEM speaker slots. They have a “polyglass” woofer cone which is supposed to give better SQ. I had checked out this series on the net and at Crutchfied’s website. I thought about going in for IS 165 (components without a crossover box…the crossovers are in-built separately at the woofers and tweeters) and IC 165 (coaxial) at the back. Now, the guy who advised me about this (Rishi from Sainath at Khar S V Road) suggested that I put coaxial in front too. His logic was that he had installed both compos and coaxial in separate cars on the same day and there was very minimal difference. The cost difference was Rs 3,500/- which didn’t matter but what did was the fact that the tweeter was too big to fit in the door and would have to be mounted on the dash and screwed in. I was dead against this so I decided to go ahead with his advice and put all 4 coaxials. BLODDY HELL! What a difference! I couldn’t believe my ears. Who the hell says the Head Unit should be thrown away. Let him sit in my car and repeat the same. I’ll get him certified insane by one of my psychiatrist friends. Of course, it’s not gonna boom like an amp with a sub, but these speakers are seriously a notch above anything I’ve heard. They lighten your wallet a bit more than other brands but they are simply marvelous. Will put up some pics as soon as I figure out how to. P.S. Thanks Johnny and everyone for all their inputs.
