Fun ride!



Insomnia got me a few weeks ago, couldn't find anything on so I bought it as well. It is over the top and visually awesome, im looking forward to seeing it on bluray 3d version.


These movies are so out there you probably could go with out watch previous ones but they are worth watching, except Thunderdome, its a piece of crap. Fury Road is one long chase, costume craziness, crazy vehicles, to me its just good fun start to finish

For 1985 (age 14) Beyond Thunderdome was Awesome!!! Nowadays we have the Octagon but then it was step into the Thunderdome. My friends and I still make references to Thunderdome to this day.

I'll concede The Road warrior was a masterpiece, the Best of the trilogy and should be considered one of the best action movies of the 80's.

Any Motorhead fans Bad Magic is Sweet!!! When I first heard it on one of my friends Klipsch Icons it sounded decent enough to justify buying the cd. Once I got it home and played it thru the 212s the difference in presentation was night and day. I could understand every word Lemmy was singing, well almost every word.
For $10 bucks its well worth buying.

A few years ago he had a Captivator 1000 w/ a less robust woofer and a 1000 wpc amp in that price range. It's much easier to get people addicted when you have a "Gateway subwoofer" to offer.

I still think any combination of the Single 8LP and Slanted 8 are perfect for Atmos. Both can be somewhat recessed in the ceiling if needed.

Dang! And the presale price starts at $1099!

I wonder what sort of output is expected with it?

I agree, the JBL 8340A's were so cheap I had to try them and they are working out fine since I only use them for movies. My base channels 7.2 are all JTR and that is what I use for music with very few exceptions.

I made the mistake of doing a full range mono listening comparison of the 8340A and a Slanted 8 this weekend. The SQ differences were very noticeable with S8's giving up some bass but having superior clarity and detail. The JBL sounds good for a plastic box speaker but at it's $1K MSLP (or even half that) there is no way I would purchase that over the S8. I got all 4 JBL's for less than the price of one S8 but still have wonder how much better Atmos movies would sound with a full JTR 11 channel setup.

It would probably be easier if you told me why you disagree. (other than you hate on JTR speakers and would never buy them)

The S8 series is designed to compliment JTR fronts as surrounds so Depending on ceiling height The Single 8LP is 7" deep and the Slanted 8 can be mounted to be aimed directly at the LP. Both are nice mounting options for different needs while keeping with JTR to match the front LCR.

My ceilings are only 7'6" high so my choice will differ from others with higher ceilings. If their is one solution for all I'm listening.

So, just to make sure we are clear. You don't like JTR products, you disagree with anyone that recommends JTR products, you cast poor wording to shine a negative light towards JTR, and yet you don't offer what it is you disagree or don't like about them. So, why do you keep posting in this thread? You said a few pages back this wasn't the thread for you, yet here you are.

I believe the term is trolling. He may truly dislike jtr speakers, but continuing to post incessantly on the jtr thread seems to indicate he enjoys the attention.

Unfortunately, I need on-wall. The slanted single 8-ht is still too big and I dont trust the nails/screws that will keep the 8ht-lp above my head.

You can also buy any mount of your choice (that will work) and attach them directly to the speaker. Jeff includes the keyhole mount as a convenience but you can use other mounts instead if that would help.

Here are a few ideas

As far as the S8's for Atmos I'm sure Jeff would either custom make or give an option for a skinny depth as possible enclosure for the application. One guy got Volt's down to 7" thick. I'msure the S8 is not too far away?

This is what I presumed, but then read dolby's atmos commercial theater setup guide to find some clarification...they mentioned 'full range' speakers for surround duties capable of extending down to 40hz...I was a bit confused...so I tried to look up specs of overhead speakers being marketed specifically for atmos...and some don't go that low while others didn't have freq range published...

I think one could get great performance from the s8 as overheads and not really miss the lower extension when our subs are filling that void plenty...seeing other companies aren't meeting that extension...maybe it might not be such a rigid requirement...but maybe Jeff's atmos surround speaker might meets dolby's 40hz spec regardless...

...or somebody can tell me someone at dolby didn't proofread the guide

^^^^Full range to 40hz is what the 210RT does. Sounds like Dolby Atmos is going to be expensive.

I'm going to try to work within Dolby's recommendation but 7.1 has already broke me till next year. Maybe by then Jeff will have a semi-affordable option or I'll just have to live with a 80hz XO.

I agree. I like what @Dennis Erskine does and the knowledge he has shared on these forums. But if the trolling of @Mfusick is how he wants to represent his company on one of the largest home theater forums, then forget about using that company.

Then this is why he comes off as a JBL plant and an ID company Hater. Thanks for pointing this out. Now his posts make since knowing He has an Agenda.

I think if Jeff does shoot to meet the 40hz spec...it could be a bookshelf or close to s8 size...hopefully.
