I'd rather rip all the pubes out of my scrotum than own another pair of metal-composite tweeters.

Or these - VIBE Audio Black Air 6 V2 (BA6-V2) 6-1/4" Component Car Speakers (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_28066_VIBE-Audio-Black-Air-6-V2-BA6-V2.html)

Sure, they are efficient. But without an extremely smooth, warm amp, they make my ears bleed.

I have a pair of Sony SSU-1800's (home audio). They have polydome tweeters/mids. They are so warm that they literally put me to sleep at FULL VOLUME. I'm talking VERY loud. I can't really explain it to be honest.

But setup my Technics SB-440's in my bedroom at the lowest possible volume that I can still tell what I'm listening to, and I'll struggle to sleep. Again, it's hard to explain. It feels like the sound cuts into my ear, and is almost too detailed.

Luckily, I'll eventually have the opportunity to get some tube amplification to power those 440's and soften them up a little bit. They are remarkably accurate and have a fantastic midrange, but they are just too harsh off solid state power.

Sure, this isn't as big of an issue with car audio speakers. But because of my experience with harsh speakers in home audio, metal-composite tweeters are immediately a turn off (sure, there may be some non-harsh metal-composite tweeters out there, but I've never heard 'em).

So do these - McIntosh | XRT2K (http://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/mcintosh-xrt2k-reference-loudspeaker.asp)

I still would never own a pair (well, obviously under certain circumstances...)

The bottom line is who knows what your reasons are but more importantly they are probably ridiculous.

Hmmmm.....

I've yet to here a warm sounding pair of aluminum dome tweeters/midrange drivers. And I've heard A LOT of speakers, mostly home audio.

It'd be way more likely then, that aluminum is the problem, not metal or metal-composite for that matter.

Aluminum is a metal if I'm not mistaken...

What I meant by metal-composite is any composite of metal. Should have made that more clear lol.

Guess youve never heard the LPG 26NA's then. The Eclipse tweeters arent bad at all. You will be hard pressed to find a $300 set of components thats comparable to the Eclipse SC8365's. Heck you wont find a 2 way passive set that sounds even half as good as the SC8365's including those bostons. Even the SC6500's I run have been reviewed with some of the top $300 2 way passive sets and it keeps right up for a fraction of the cost.

I'm not saying the speakers are bad, I'm just saying they are probably harsh. Some people enjoy that. I don't.
