    How are we supposed to judge if they are worth it or not if you don't post a price???

    Re: Eclipse comps any good?

    We had those exact same comps on our demo board for a long while. I thought they were pretty smooth in the upper midrange and had a very soft sounding tweet. They didn't have great mid bass impact but they would still make a good compliment to a nice sub set up.

    yeah, thanks a lot for the answer dude, but would you mind if i ask you something else... which other kit do you think it compares to??? im looking for good SQ, do you think it accomplishes the duty of some good SQ comp?

    and what else do you have to tell me about it? something else you've noticed on the way it sounded? i want answers hehe

    Re: Eclipse comps any good?

    Well, I was able to A/B compare them to JL XR/VR and Diamond M3/M5 components that were on our demo board at the time. These more than held their own when compared to the above. We all thought that they sounded very similiar to the VR's in the midrange with a little less midbass punch, which isn't a bad thing. However, the Eclipse tweet sounded much more smooth. I actually preferred their soft dome tweet to the metal dome XR's. These are a solid system and can be dailed in nicely with the tweeter level adjustment on the crossover.

    Re: Eclipse comps any good?

    A couple of other things I thought I would add. I think that sensitivity rating is a little over-rated. I remember them being a little less efficient than the other comps we had on the board. It could have been due to the design of the tweet. As I said above, they do not have great midbass and extension, so you may have to run your sub at a slightly higher lowpass frequency to compliment them.

    Re: Eclipse comps any good?

    how much are you having to pay?

    I paid a little over $600 (retail) for a set of eclipse comps in like 1997. They were great, till they got jacked.

    Re: Eclipse comps any good?

    i got it this afternoon.. the box is sitting by my side as im typing this... i havent put it to play yet, but my impressions about the speakers design was AWFUL... it looks like a cheap *** chinese 2way kit that sells for less than 50 dollars or sumthing... on that part i miss my Visteon comps, they looked SO shiny, everything was very well finished and it was VERY sturdy.. this kit doesn't even have spring terminals, only those cheap plugs used in the early speakers... and the tensil leads... OH MY GOD THE TENSIL LEADS... theu are EXTREMELY tiny, like you could break them by barely touching it... the tensil lead of the of the tweeters are smaller than an eyelash, i swear!!! not to mention the original wires that leaves the tweeter dome are of 0.01mm (seriously, it must be something like this)

    well, this all doesn't really matter A LOT anyway... i hope it will sound amazing once it's installed... let's hope...

    don't take it personal yet, i'm noy bashing on it... i haven't even installed it yet... it has EVERYTHING to sound WAYS better than my Visteon comps... everything.... this, if i dont ****ed them up
