id take the focals over massive audio. However i have heard neither, so i cant personally recommend it from experience. As i stated in earlier threads, sound is perceived differently from person to person.

A speaker might sound good to me, but might sound horrible to someone else. I could tell you to go to a shop and try to listen to them, but in a soundboard, it wont sound the same as it would in a car.

Go to caraudio.com, and read up on the speaker section to get some more ideas.

Whatever you decide, buy from a reputable place. If you buy from a cheap place (hifisound) and need to get something replaced, it is a nightmare.
