A lot of you guys know Luke, for him the 215's would just be little satellites in comparison to his new DIY 24" SEOS mains. That is a 65 inch tv! Twice the cu ft of the 215's:

One of JVC's regional managers is bringing two projectors to the JTR room at RMAF. One is the DLA-RS67. I'm not sure on the other projector. Seymour Screen Excellence will be providing the ISF certified Elightor-4K screen. "The only woven material in the world designed and certified for perfect color and 4K resolutions. This is also the only acoustically transparent screen available that has no frequency effect."

OMG, when did Seymour come out with that new screen material!?? This is going to be very difficult to resist...

Not sure about the exact measurement, but I can watch stuff with two lights on... but also have the brightness turned down per my own calibration. It's a closed space, so everything is great when it's lights out.

Luke told me that hearing the 215's inspired him to build his own full range monsters.

I can't remember exactly, but I know his room is smaller than mine (mine is 23 long 17.5 wide). He also has 2 G-Horns and 2 Othorns in his room! A friend of ours from KC was recently at Luke's place and he said it is a whole other level compared to our "standard" 8 ish sealed sub setup. His mains alone can keep up with our subs above 25hz.

I'd wager that he is right up there with the most bass headroom of any AVS guy along with the likes of Nathan and soon Doug. 140 db's plus at lower than you would think possible frequencies.

Yeah, I wish Seymour posted pricing on their site. Would make it easier to shop.

Depending on your viewing distance and lumen output, it's not necessarily better than Center Stage XD. When I was comparing, the extra gain in the XD made a huge difference. I would definitely try samples of both if you are shopping for an AT screen.

Yeah, I got a bit confused there and thought that the ambient light rejecting material was somehow AT . I guess physics makes that an unlikely combination .

Oh...I see what you're talking about...

Yeah, it's a shame that you have to choose between high gain and a vertical matching center. Someday projector tech and prices will make it easier.

That's a SEOS-12 and it'll probably get upgraded to a SEOS-15 with a BMS 4550.

@lukeamdman
Jeff brought a pair of the 215RT for my GTG last year and I knew the SEOS-12 speakers had to go. I thought they were awesome!

My room is 23'x12.5', which I think is the exact same size as @Scrappydue room.

I took this picture for Steve:



When I picked up the RF-83s for him, I thought "dang these are big!". Then I brought them downstairs and those 50" tall speakers looked tiny for some reason.

I think no matter how educated we get we still have an itch for snake oil to be real

Honest noob question, why would a PJ screen cost that much money?
