Looks amazing !Lookign forward to seeing the completed version!

Any reason you chose the S2S-EX and not S1S-EX or SUB18?

EDIT: Another question: Why did you go with multiple 2x600w amps and not the 8x600w? (I'm asking because I am planning on what amps I should use with the M2 myself and love the simåplicity of the 8-channel version)

Home Theater: JBL M2 & SUB18 powered by Crown and BSS.

Hey thrang,
Sweet setup. I'm looking at getting M2s for LCR,4xs4s subs and Revel surrounds + atmos. Powered by 4xsda-4600, 1xsda-8300.
My question is, is it really necessary to get the sdec ? My dealer says it's not truly a sysnthesis system without an sdec. Can you help me out with this ?

Also can i use crown dci 8/300 and 4/600 instead of the SDAs ? Will they be a more cost wffective option or the same price

Jeez, did not get notified on some of these last posts....


I thought dual 15's were more than sufficient, and the S2S is the current model.

The 2x600's are each bi-amping the M2's and I simply wanted to go with a mono block approach for the mains and surrounds. Less of a single point of failure as well with few multichannel amps.

As long as you're using the Crown amps that allow you to load the speaker profiles, such as the DCi's, it will work. Yes, its not a true Sythnesis system short of adding their processing and calibration, but it all depends on investment and and how much you want to have your hands in the pot. I didn't want to invest in a turnkey system both financially and as a hobbyist.

I presume the SDA's are more money - not sure what they provide qualitatively over the DCi's as I've never really explored comparing. Perhaps very little...

Can I request a video along with the photos? I think this WYSC section needs more videos of people theaters.

Probably too complicated to do well because of lighting, but I'll explore...
