So 2 Cat 12's and a single sun will be a good start for a 2.1 system? I have an older Onkyo PRSC886 but am not against buying a new pre/pro, an Oppo 105d and some good cables.

I emailed mark to ask about a demo of these speakers (and sub??) at my home. Has this been done before?

I wouldn't say they are a "Start" by any means. The Cat12s are definitely in my all time top 3.

I realize that I'm a total PITA with this HT and stereo stuff. Maybe the Cats are just what I need. Actually have room behind the couch to hide a sub or two if needed. Probably wouldn't be the ideal placement for a sub but it's better than not having a sub at all. Guess it's coming down to Focal 1038be vs Cat12's.

Trying to line up an at home demo if it's at all possible.

Hi Guys,

Need some advise here.

Suddenly 1 of my Cat 12 have intermittent cut off of sound and it give out some static noise (like when you burning those damp firewood).

So I though it could be cable, power point or power cord. So I switch around the 3 Cat 12 and it seem only that particular speaker having problem only.

So I remove the XLR cable and only plug in the power cord and switch the amp on. Even without any signal input there is still the static noise.

Do you think is the Amp problem or Speakers problem. The noise is from the Coaxial driver only.

BTW after the amp cool down it happen maybe every 15 - 20 minutes. However when halfway through the movie the amp is pretty hot and the lost of sound it happen every few minutes and last for few second only. Like a sentence it lost 3 - 5 words.

Thanks
Cheers

I know you've heard quite a few different speakers so just curious as to what two you would but above the Cats? I've never heard them.

Could be picking up noise from the power source... your house wiring. Have you done anything different in your house like change your wiring or install lights or appliances?

Some of my favorites today include the following - it would be hard to give them a "ranking" since each had their own strengths respectively:

Seaton Cat 12s
Danley SH50s
JTR Noesis 212HT
Yorkville U215

Thanks,

Manage to solve the problem. Speaker Power reply to me.

In case anybody have the same problem next time. Just switch to another Program Sel and power cycle. All those static noise gone.



Cheers

Hello fellow Seaton Sound owners.

Recently I became an owner of three Cat-12's after a LONG ordeal with some other speakers. Boy am I happy that I made the change. From the looks to the performance, these are something special.

Anybody heading to the RMAF, I highly recommend stopping by the Seaton Sound room. Mark is going to have a pair of Cat-12's running in full range mode. Wish I could head out there and meet him in person, because he is a great guy to do business with. He will be in the Atrium level 4, room 441.

Once again, very happy to be part of this group now.
