Joseph Audio RM33si vs. Coincident Super Eclipse

Category: Speakers

Has anyone compared the Joseph Audio RM33si with the Coincident Super Eclipse or the Total Eclipse. Any opinions? I'm also interested in whether anyone has compared them with respect to the size of there sweet spot. Like rainbows, music is much more enjoyable to share with someone.

I would be very careful with CT's Israel Blum. He sent me a pair of Triumphs speakers with cabinet flaws & would not take them back. Since he's in Canada, I had little recourse. I sent them back to him at my expense & he refused them and I got stuck with them. Another guy caught him making non-production upgrades to a speaker that was being auditioned for an article. This guy is bad news.
I had a pair of SE IIIs for a brief period, and I do mean brief. When I pulled one of the drivers out, what did I see? A Scanspeak 4" midrange as advertised? Nope, an Audax. Whassup with that?

You should have seen a SEAS Excel 5" carbon fibre cone driver.

The writer complaining about receiving Triumphs with cabinet flaws and then sending them back- The only instance of a customer wanting to send back a pr of Triumphs happened in 1998 after he had the speakers for 2 months. Until then, he was sufficiently impressed that he inquired whether we would allow him to become a dealer.

As for Super Eclipses with a 4" midrange driver- The only midrange used in the Supers is 5.25" . Up to Series III, it was a SEAS Excel with a magnesium cone. Series III saw a change to an Audax carbon fiber.

You are correct, it is a 5.25" driver, a typo on my part. However, this is directly from the website:

>Midrange/woofers: (Super Eclipse III)

Only the finest 5" carbon fiber cone units were deemed appropriate and were therefore selected. These SEAS sourced drivers are part of their state of the art Excel line. Excel combines the best designs with SEAS' experience in material technology and production.<
