I think the focals midbass punch really depends on room and where you position them. my 948's are tuned around 40hz and peak at 80hz...some dont like the 80hz peak but its somewhat easy to eq/dsp if you into that. I think they do really good in the bass dept and sound airy and natural. if you play loud and HT at reference, might need a stout amp due to the focals are like a 4 ohm speaker down to 2.8 ohms alot of times. this can be very demanding...my marantz avr did drive the focals pretty good tho.
