You read my mind. I plan to upgrade those in the next few months. I’ll be looking for a good amp.
The Focal Clears are a great choice. I very much doubt you’ll regret getting them. As always @Torq’s advice is spot on. I can’t see there being any long term problems with regards to dirt but I can see where you are coming from. The colour of the pads whilst really nice with the Chrome grills worried me too but with care should be fine.
