    Crescendo CCXs vs Eclipse 3way comps

    Im looking specifically for anyone who has experience with both and/or can provide good information on either. Its basically come down to these two.
    Im leaning towards the Eclipses because of the strong midbass, as I like a good warm sound, but I also like my highs clean with good separation and transparency.

    So which one to pull the trigger on? Looking to run 120-150RMS easy per speaker, and musical preference is normally death metal. Most all sets Ive heard are just incredibly harsh.

    I used to have some Eclipse coax and they were garbage.

    Ive heard the Crescendos and they rock. Cant beat them for the price.

    I'd roll with the SC8365's. The mids are beefy as hell, and the set seems to have decent build quality. $140 is a hell of a price imho...

    Bah.. completely different perspectives there.
    The Eclipse seem very nice, and Ive heard with a phase switch they sound quite good. I will only be running one frontstage and I need them to keep up with my LVL5 as well as possible, and the Crescendos seem as theyll be louder.
    So ugh! Decisions.. decisions.

    Eclipse. CCXs are just a forum boner on some real good viagra right now. Dont get me wrong, they are decent, but I would take the old PG RSD comps over them any day.

    Be different, rock the eclipse. You'll be able to send more power to them. Have 150-300rms@4ohms per side on tap for them.

    Re: Crescendo CCXs vs Eclipse 3way comps

    I've heard a pair of Eclipse 6x9s and a set of 4" components(these were all black and from the Eclipse aluminum/titanium era) and honestly I really liked them. They don't like too much power though because we blew the 4 incher with 40 watts.
