Bottom Line:   
Fantastic speakers !!! I owned several great speakers over the last 20 yrs none ever came close to reproducing the live sound the totals give me. I'm using Manley Neo- Classic monos with 11 watts S.E 24 Push-Pull never needing more power. these do sound great in a 14'x14' room some would call to small for them, not so, they are mind-blowing, a special THANKS to Mike Holm Of Holm Audio [630] 663-1298 for all your help in building my Dream System and Isreal Blume for building such Qualtity Prouducts plus the finest customer support around. Treat your self to a pair of Coincident speakers it will be the best investment in your system you can make, Cheers

Bottom Line:   
As the owner of the well reviewed Super Eclipse (SE) Speaker (Soundstage, TAS, Inner Ear)I had an initial concern that the Total Eclipse while offering the ability to play dynamic music with high SPL, could not match the tonal balance, nuance and fine detail of its smaller brethern. However, on a leap of faith, predicated on the reputation of Coincident owner and president, Israel Blume, I purchased the Totals several months ago.

Frankly, this was the best audio upgrade I ever made.
First, while these speakers held my rapt attention, even right out of the box, after some 200 hours of play they
demonstarted a coherence, tonal balance, dynamic range, and presentation that surpased that of the the SE model. I was absolutely floored by the presentation which suddenly was life sized. Stan Getz and Paul Desmond were playing in my living room, not the scaled down 7/8 versions I had grown accustomed to and taken for the real thing. My concern over detail vanished as well, as the Totals seemed at least as refined in capturing the delicacy of a melody, the turn of a phrase, the slight breaking of a voice, the fingering of the keys on Joe Henderson's a saxophone. In fact the Total Eclipse speakers capture even more detail than the SE model,
presented with a tone that your ears immediately perceive as closer to the real thing, less hi-fi, more musical.

In the area of dynamics, however, is where these 94 db efficient speakers really shine. Each enclosure is equipped
with two side-firing 10 inch drivers. The cabinet itself being quite large allows for an awful lot of air to move. The end result is some of the most dynamic and impactful bass I have ever experienced. Large orchestral works (Fanfare for the Common Man--Reference Recordings)jolt you with the authority of the timpanni, relax you with the incredible blossoming of the bass note, then hold you in rapt attention as the note seems to decay forever. I can think of no finer speaker for large orchestral works, or for that matter delicate flute and harp recitals. IMHO
they represent a brekthrough in performance and values.

I would urge anyone with the $ and a large room to consider these speakers on your short list of those that must
be auditioned. You will not be disappointed. I had the opportunity to play the Plinius Integrated, the Art Audio
Jota, the Manley 300B amps (push pull) and the Wyetech 572 (SE) with these speakers. The Manleys and the Wyetechs were both admirable. While solid state sounds superb with these speakers, the 14 ohms impedance is clearly better suited to a tube amp. The Manley brought out all the rich harmonic texture and microphonic detail of the music with nothing offensive. The Wyetech was incredibly transparent, yet rich in texture and more accomplished in resolving bass.
