why do you need 2 sets? I rather have 1 good set of comps instead of 2 decent sets

how much are you gonna sell the s60's for?

BA's speakers are known to handle alot of power. MB Q's tweeters can rip your head off, which will make them quite loud. JL's stuff is a bit more laid back, I like them, but I don't think you would same with morel. Maybe try a set of used z6's.

What type of sound are you looking for, because all of those speakers can be classified into what you have listed. DO you want more of a laidback tweeter, a harsh tweeter...Tons of midbass or not really... What kind of music do you listen to?

thats the problem, i like alot of music, i mostly listen to indy rock and hip hop, sometimes metal..

anyway i think im more of the type that likes more tweeter then usual, more tweeter the the S60's put out anyways, i like the midbass too. im not sure how exactly to describe the kind of sound i want

I have personally played with both the Eclipse sc8352 and Rainbow Germaniums. So I will try to shed light on them.
The Eclipse tweeter has some problems with certain vocals around 2.5-3kHz. The midrange is a very natural sounding. The lower end of these drivers matched my current JBL's. These are a couple of years old though and I have no idea how the new metal stuff sounds.
The Germaniums (paired with a cal26 tweet) were good. The tweeter is hard to beat and the crossovers are amazing. The midrange is clear and very accurate, but vocals don't quite sound authentic (I don't like metal cone drivers though).
Anyways, out of those two the Rainbows will get my vote.

Did you swap out the CAL25s? If so which ones? Or was that just a typo?

Yeah I originally had the 25's, but traded em for a friend's 26's (from a pair of profi's). I have had a few tweets since then and I couldn't remember how the 25's sounded.
