Ok, I just got a set of Hertz HSK 165XL's along with a audiocontrol EQS. Wondering if I should attempt to go active and run each speaker off 125rms or just use the crossovers and run them bridged from my Eclipse amp doing 250rms/side.

Dude that's your call. Active has the potential to sound much better, but requires a lot more work, time, and patience on your part.

Do you have a friend willing to put in some work, time, and patience. Active is worth it.

Nope, unless I pay a shop to do so and thats not happening. Not many that know what they are talking about around Tucson.
