Have you thought of using the CV for the 215's? From what I've read on the prosound forums the Behringer does not measure well above 10kHz (depending on load). While a beast for subs they may have measurable issues at the high frequency end. The 215's are not as easy to drive as the 212's and may show differences in amps that the blind test did not reveal.

I wish I saved the link to the measurements but someone here probably has it.

Ah hell, you don't need another reason - you could come up specifically to check out some of the HT rooms up here! I'm still dying to check out Doug's room with his dual G-Horn in the attic above his room setup.

Yes, I am going to have to try to make something happen!

Missed the last few posts..

I did try the CV 5000 with the 215's. The output is impressive but it does put out a lot of hiss/hum. The inuke 600 had less of that and the 3000 less than both, I can't hear the hiss from the 3000 from my seat.

Hmmm interesting about the high frequency issues with Behringer.... not good for the wallet....

Actually I'd be very interested in this since they are so much more power hungry especially full range.

Would be very interesting to have an amp shootout with the 215's; especially if the 212's are as efficient as being reported in the main JTR thread. The 215's are going to be a LOT more stressful on the amp when trying to replicate Metallica live in your basement. The 212's probably only need a clean 250 watts to blow your face off, not the case with the 215's.

Sucks the CV has noise issues. I keep looking at the Crest Audio CA18 that is the mack daddy that many of the chinese clone ripped off (I mean modelled after). To bad its so freakin expensive, but it was the old school touring standard beefor the lighter weight LG's came along. Some seem happy with the Crest Pro Lite DSP models, they are same as the Peavey line but with heavier duty caps and higher quality parts.

The new QSC PLD models have built in DSP, put out a ton of power, but cost a lot.
