Default Focal P165 V30's - online buy?

Hi all,

I am currently in the middle of planning the upgrade for the sound system in my '13 WRX. i was wondering if any of you have ordered Focals online at stores like Woofersetc? I have read a few reviews noting they aren't an authorized retailer and that's how they're able to offer the discounted prices. I'd be fine with that as long as the speakers are genuine and not fakes. I don't care much about the warranty on them.

I think you answered your own question.

How? I am still unsure whether they sell fake or genuine speakers.

They are real Focal speakers. They are not backed by Focal as they are not sold by an authorized retailer. They are the same Focals as you'd buy from an authorized retailer.

If you think that Focal has build quality issues that would result in a warranty claim, don't by from woofersetc. unless you want to have to deal with a return to woofersetc.

If you think that Focal makes a quality product that won't require warranty support, buy them from woofersetc.

I am pretty sure that I got an email from you on the same subject, but I get a lot of emails so I could be mistaken.
