    I know what you mean. I played the 807Ws and with my McCormack amp they were way to bright, but sound perfect with my Sonic Frontiers tube amp. I found a great deal on a pair of Sonus faber Liutos and they really shine with the SS Mc amp.

    Two things Focal are known for. They are a bit forward in terms of sound and their need for power. Lots of it to make them sparkle.
    In my car I had their 30th anniversary set paired to my Alpines amps pushing 100watts to each speaker and they barely kept up. Lol. Great speakers though.
