    Just to share out my experience i have gone through when i plan to

    purchase a FOCAL component speake

    So I went to scout for this speaker at all the ICE shop who is selling this brand. Eventually I managed to find a shop (xxx) who selling this model and test the sound quality 2 compared others such as Morel, JL Audio, Dimension, DSL, PHD and Eton. After comparing, FOCAL 165KP n 165K2P are still the best to my hearing. The thing is, the seller is promoting this model and asking me to install fast as he may no have stock. But I hold back my urged and went to the FOCAL authorized dealer to check it out.

    Guess what, the authorized dealer shows me 2 sets of FOCAL 165KP model component speaker and ask me to differentiate it. But I could not differentiate it as both are 99% the same. The dealer told me, one of the speaker I’m holding is a FAKE set or Imitated set from CHINA ! . I was totally surprise with what the dealer show to me and explained to me.

    The differences are, CHINA FOCAL do not have identity card, no warranty, epoxy glue can be detected below the cone edge, the KELVAR material is more rough compared the ORI FOCAL. The most important thing that we may detect is the serial number at the magnet area. ALL CHINA FOCAL serial number will end with xxxx2196 and the engraving is poor compare the ORI FOCAL. Where the ORI FOCAL will have the serial number engrave nicely and the serial number is match to the identity card given.

    So, be careful when purchasing this high end speaker. Check the ICE shop whether is the authorized dealer for the high end product.

    Beware guys !

    Recently, saw some fake Pioneer PRS speakers sold at a an accessory workshop at Jln. Sg Besi (next to BHP petrol station). So, buyers beware.

    Wow, this thread is really scaring the shit out of me into getting a new speaker system. I just wanted to buy a set of Sony XPlod 6958B speakers (6 x 9) and I saw many shops selling those speaker type at RM150 below. All these auctions are found in www.mudah.com.my and I dunno wether I should proceed into buying this speaker. Can anyone advise? Or anyone with the set of speaker tell me the price when they bought it back (original)?

    Here is one of the shortcuts links for ur view, any opinions or feedbacks that will mature me will be most appreciated. If can, pm me also ^_^

    Bro...if u do google for this model xs-GTF6958B u will just get 5 result and all of it r in Malaysia...n it not even listed in the sony explode website....so u should no its a fake sony product....if it is an original sony explode u will get a thousands of google hit. But anyway they let us know that they r fake....the problem is that those that imitate the real one in almost every aspect....not even a train eyes can differenciates them....the only way to be sure is to buy from a legitimate dealer that u can always check from the internet....if u r in sabah...go to Fuji Car Accessories....they all they prove that the products is original....but never let them install it in ur car....cos a kid install better than their worker...shit....i got all the scracthes in my car becos of their install....damn....
