Looking at the CD8445 and the CD8455

what are the differences?

best I can tell is that the digital eq is 7 band for the 45 and 10 band for the 55.

other than that, same HU.

am I wrong in my assumption?

8455 for active 3 way control...
8445 if passive components is all u ever plan on running because the xover is a one point low/high that affects F/R channels crossed over to the sub at that point

the time alignment is more customizable on the higher end version. I underestimated the differnce T-alignment makes, Just go for the best of the best and be done with it.

Do they both have a pause button? My CD5444 does not.

Some eclipses have pause buttons that aren't indicated as such on the face(like one of the preset buttons, etc). Check it out or call eclipse tech support unless your owner's manual indicates it does not have one.
