ive had the same focal polyglass' v2s since 2006. granted they arent run off an amp from the bargain bin. you get what you pay for. ive used them for years.
i have a polyglass sub ive been running since 2008 and beat the crap out of it. but its run off a zapco dc 750.2 and it still sounds amazing. it depends on how good the equipment is that will determine longevity, and i know how to tune and know the limits of my equipment.
i understand being brand loyal, i am extremely loyal to zapco amplifiers. there are other factors to consider when "setting up a system"
but to each his own.
