Thanks FOH! These speakers look like the real deal. Mark makes some awesome products, I am definitely looking at these as an option.

Question: when it says FR 50-20000Hz do they roll off quickly at 50Hz or do they actually have useful output at 50Hz?

I'm new to the Seaton Audio universe and am trying to soak up as much information as I can before I make a purchase.

This might be a dumb question, but I'll shoot it out there anyways. Besides the obvious differences in how the speakers are powered and varying price points, can someone please tell me how the Catalyst LCRs would compare to Triad's Platinum LCRs and Focal's Utopia III Viva offering? Are these speakers built for different purposes or different sized theater rooms?

I have seen photos of both Triad's and Mark's speakers used in similar installations, with three vertical LCRs behind an AT screen. I think this is a sexy setup, and I'm considering it for my own theater. Can someone please tell me, if I were to use three Catalysts alongside two Sumbersive HPs behind an AT screen, would there be the potential for screen movement due to the large amount of air being thrown about?

I'm using three Catalysts + two Submersive HPs behind an AT screen and there is no screen movement. See here.

I was wondering if there are any max SPL numbers for the Cat 12's and 8's. Just getting an idea for the largest rooms these can handle.

Hi Guy,

If I place the Cat 12 Horizontally must I change the Tweeter orientation too?

If yes, is it going to be an easy job. Just unscrew and turn 90 degree and fix it back.

Thanks for you advise.

Hi Marcus,

The Catalyst speakers use a coaxial 8" driver which is perfectly symmetrical (round actually). No adjustments are needed when orienting them horizontally as the driver is the same no matter which way you rotate it.

Hi Mark & FOH,

Thanks and glad to hear that. Horizontal position only temporary once I upgrade to AT screen will place back vertically.

Hi Guys,

Can I confirm do I need 3 power point for 3 catalyst or I can use 1 power point and connect the 1st spk power output to 2nd spk and 2nd spk output to the 3rd speaker.

Thanks
Marcus

Hi,

Thought of getting the JBL SCS 12 as ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos.

Can this speakers match with Seaton Cat.

Thanks
