I am so sorry that I was not able to post pictures, dont have a decent cam right now. But I did get this mail as response and anyone wishing to confirm can contact the person as well. The person in concern was very informative and cleared out everything for me and I am very happy that I have the original focal speakers.

you have the right ones, the crossovers are in line and you definitely get them.
you might not have noticed as they are connected to the speaker wires.
the next time insist on a focal amp, it is not much difference and also they make a lot of difference

You should contact the aforementioned person before buying Focal speakers from anywhere and ask if the person you are buying from is a authorized dealer.

wrong there buddy. Loads of dealer stock high end stuff. Car Life stocks JBL Power & now GTi series too i think, Infinity High end etc. Even Auto Center has good stuff.

Next time you go to him ask him why doesn't he stock DLS products

Lolz!!! there are alot of fakes available seems your hair will grow white if you start to find from today,the only thing trust your eyes and ears while buying,in some cases people love to buy a 25paise stuff for Rs.10 and then call the cheaper ones fake,would suggest invest some dead amount buy the product and test it,there are even fake rockford,fake bostons,fake pioneer,fake alpines bla bla bla even in the US of A and U of K you get alot of fake car audio products,its not 100% true what you buy for 3-5k in US is always original,but the product being fake or original if mfg. point to point will perform at its best so now do we require seperate thread for all of these

In some cases the outer box is designed locally to get the higher price down,whereas the product inside is original. Rule of thumb,unless and untill you experiment it yourself you cannot differentiate in fake and originals unlike some real cheapo brands.
