Focal are the better sounding of the two..it's just I need the sub 6 with them..that's all!

The A77x effectively use a ribbon tweeter and 2x mid/bass drivers.  Both of the 7" drivers are the same but they are prescribed different ranges of frequency to improve the delivery, you could do exactly the same with A7x and a sub, except a dedicated sub would have the benefit of being designed specifically for the lowest frequencies possible. I would suspect that A7x with the ADAM Sub8 would be better in most applications than the A77x.  In the UK you can buy the A7x with Sub8 for almost exactly the same price as a pair of A77x but that will give you a MUCH bigger frequency range.

 

I would seriously recommend you do a live demo and let your ears inform you

The SM9 is a three system like the A77x, the solo BE is the 2 way design where you would need to add a sub.  The focal CMS range are very good for the money and well worth considering.

I have heard the sm9 at the flux studio in new York..I am swayed by the focal twin be with sub 6 now..the sm9 would be overkill for dance music really(and i would need a better dac)..i think I will have to have a listen to both the focals and adam audios..but I know the focals will win this one!

Twin6 BE has a lot of bass.  I have the sub too but it's not really needed.

I like your mix man.  Downloading the others right now.  Thank you!

 

Apogee is the BEST.  I have the Duet 2 and ONE for iOS.
