No way! I have that same amp and I think I can safely say stick with the polks. Eclipse is nice, but no way you will blow those polks away with them. If you want to upgrade try the polk momo's. Those speakers are sweet!! BTW I have the polk's too . :)

I;m not a audio dude really, but I know they sound good and are easy on the ears.

Polk MOMO MMC6500

They will own any eclipse made speaker and tons of people will back me up on that one.

I gurantee you, the better buy will be the Polk MOMO's

Best upgrade you'll ever make....I still mist them and I upgraded to a pair of Boston Acoustic Z6's

Hmmmmm. I've never heard Eclipse speakers before, so i can't give any advice or opinions on them. I posted a mini-review of the MMC6500's over at passatworld. Check it out here:

I like the polks over the eclipse. The polks are warmer, but thats just my opinion.

What's been on your mind lately, airtas? Leaning towards one over the other? Looking at other options? What's the scoop?

maybe the fact that no one that has looked at this thread has the eclipses but many have had the polk means something...... i own the polk momo mmc6.5 and they are great... they are rated 125rms but i put 150 on them and they have no problem been running the for over a year. the tweet is a little harsh but if you turn the crossover to -3 its great
