I don't have the 165's but I do have the 130K's in my car and they sound absolutely great!!

The 165's come with the 6.5" and the 130's have the 5-1/8" - I still haven't installed the other set on the doors but should be doing so next weekend.... Good luck with your install... I am sure you will like the sound quality :)

I'm looking into getting Polyglass 165v, I've checked the dimensions of the speaker and I think its too deep. There is a slimline version which is 2 3/8" deep as opposed to the 2 7/8" normal depth.

kirkMKIV, I'd be interested to know how you mounted your focals.

Cheers

Geoff

The 130K's are not too deep to go on the doors - I don't have them in the doors yet but will try to do so this weekend. I don't know about the 165K's

Focal speakers are good quality in general (tweeters are a bit harsh, but other than that, they are great). For some odd reason, they really perform great when matched with Zapco amplifiers.

They are nice and they are on blowout sale right now since the P2K's are out. If you can get the latest Polykevlars, go for it. So far the have been much better then Utopias in sound department.

He is right. Focals and Zapcos just have a lot of love for each other. Same thing goes for mating McIntoch with Dynaudios. Just some of those magic combinations proven with time.
