I wrote a long reply, and it wouldn't take. Long story short, good set up.

I have the alpine cd149bt head unit,soundstream amp 4.5 and focal 6.5s,i have tried different sources of music,the radio,usb etc and the speakers sound like crap over half volume,very distorted,gain on amp to lowest setting,bass and treble setting messed with as well,they don't sound good,sidecar customs suggests ditching the focals and putting in the hawgwired so im going that route this week,good thing theres still snow on the ground,anyways we each have our own opinion but I will never own focal again,hope this helps

Jay, I don't know why you're having problems with the Focals, I've had the CA's, PC's, and KR's, no issues. But (shut up Q) I'd put the Infinity Kappas up against all but the KR's. I would also put the Kappa up against the Hawgwired. For the price I haven't seen anything better, IMO.

having problems currently with focal arc audio setup

I am on the second set of focal isc 165 speakers now and have replaced the amp once. hoping the next set they send me will fix it for good. Think focals are very wet weather sensitive

I had Sound Customz install the Focal 165 speakers and ARC 125.2 amp at Laughlin river run 2 years ago. Using stock HD head unit the system sounds great. I'm sure it would be even better with after market HU but will wait for stock HU to fail before changing.
