I tried all last week to get hold of them...
"The wireless number you have dialed is currently unavailable"
Not even a choice to leave a voicemail.

I will keep trying this week

I love the name too.
Maybe the orbit being shifted by all these OS users is causing our climate change......biggrin.gif

Jeff at JTR finally replied to my emails.
One more email, and I will hopefully get this thing ordered.
How long did you guys have to wait from time of order, till day of delivery?
And was the order placed via email, or phone call required.
A call must be placed to exchange CC info

I contacted Jeff by email and finished the transaction over the phone. I got my os in the time Jeff stated and boy was that thing packed well. Congrats on the purchase!

Btw, I've tried some samples recently and personally I am not as impressed with 15hz content as much as I am in the 25-35hz stuff. Below 20hz I get a lot of house shake which I suppose is cool enough, but slightly higher up and I feel the effect in my body and not just the house. I'm sure it also adds to the effect that I can hear it as well.

Oh my gosh. That's terrible. You're immune to ULF.

When we play <20Hz content at +/-0dB MVC, the whole room (floors, chairs, us, everything), shakes, rattles and rolls.

Maybe it's my choice of sub, but it's different for me. Everything shakes like crazy below 20hz. Me? Not as much as above 25-30hz.

Maybe it just seems that way to me also because being able to hear and feel at the same time adds to the effect vs just seeing things start rattling.

with three orbit shifters the seat to seat variation is greatly reduced. Here is an overlay showing my bass response for the 4 front seats. It is my house curve for listening to music.

I really like it but now I'd like to replace my Paradigm studio 40's because they can't keep up.

It will be a while before that happens , I'm in summer mode and spending the "spare change" on weekend car .

I did add 4 GIK panels on the side walls and 3 over the listening position on the ceiling. Big improvement to me .

I've been following the DIY threads ( http://www.diysoundgroup.com/waveguide-speaker-kits/fusion15-kit.html ) and may do something like that until I win the lottery and then I'll buy some JTR 215 RT 's in silver metallic cool.gif

I'm 80/20 music ,concerts / movies so i want something that has strong mid bass.

Can I recess an orbitshifter into a wall and just have the vent port into my theater room? Would the performance of the sub be negatively affected?

Thoughts?

I can do 1/4 or midwall.

Re: Corner loading, I can get pretty close but I am not sure how close to the corner I need to be to get the full benefit.

testing in my room showed getting within a few feet from the corner starts to make a difference in the output level. Sorry I didn't save those graphs although its fairly academic until you do it in your room. Do you already have an OS or is this something you are planning for?

3 Orbit Shifters?
DAM!!
Noticed you have the Sunfire amp....I have Sunfire CRS-3 On Wall speakers I use as "heights"....Very high quality product.
Having a Funk 15.2 sub and a SVS PB12+, I aspire for a "be all/end all" woofage system of an Orbit(s)
Very cool!

at 3 OS I m done (I said the same thing after 1)! I like the Sunfire amp runs really cool and it's fairly powerful too. I have heard the CRS-3 speakers at my friends house and they sound very good. He is a professional installer and Sunfire is one of the brands he carries. I got the amp from him too, hardly used for 1 year at about 60% discount so I couldn't pass it up. How do you like the Funk sub, I have heard good things about them and they look really cool too.

Thanks for the info. I may be able to get that close to the corner.

I am just planning right now for a new 14x20x12 foot room.

I actually wish it was lower so there was less volume in the room (may need two orbitshifters, haha), but the first floor is all specced at 12 foot so kind of stuck with it.
