It's pretty cool that Jeff made both the Super subwoofer and Super speaker list. His products deserve the recognition.
I find it strange that they dont do a full review. Better exposure for a great product.

The wall/ceiling mounts have arrived.

They fit the SL8 HT LP's right over the speakerpost nicely.

So you're drilling into the cabinet? Not that I'm opposed to that ... just curious.

I'd say it's pretty good advertising just to be on that list.

Yes.
I wont be using these for anything else but ceiling duty and resale value is hardly an issue since resale without a JTR marketplace/community in my vicinity
is hard anyway.

I've been tossing the idea around of getting a 3rd Seaton submersible near my listening position, corner loaded.

But I much rather spend the money on getting 210rt mains, and slanted 8 Rears.

What if I saved some cash and bought a captivator 118HT or a captivator 1400 for my 3rd sub? They would have to be on there sides due to high limitations buy who cares.

Get the 210rt mains and S8 surrounds. After your system is together see what it'is capable of as a whole before re-visiting the idea of adding a third SubM.

Most people consider a pair of Submersives a good place to start.

I guess I like bass. But yes that's the logical response.

They are definitely right up my alley. Ideally 215rts but they just won't work in our living room for numerous reasons.

I would get mains and surrounds first and then I would go for any JTR sealed sub to match the seatons. I currently have the Seaton slave/master and a JTR S1. Works very well together.

The 210RT's will add alot of bass if you run them full range.
Not quite a 3rd submersive most probably but it may satisfy your need.

I felt that the 210rm has great mid bass compared to my Salk ht2 center.

I didn't expect it the small Salk center to have amazing mid bass but then again the added bass from the center has added one more level of excitement to movies.

I'm sure the 210Rt's will be the same.

Just one of those things, you don't know what your missing until you tried it.

It's generally best to avoid mixing sub models, if possible, because they may have frequency-dependent phase differences. With the same model, you can time align the subs and get them in-phase at every frequency.

I'd definitely go for the 210RTs. It would be a tough decision whether to go for Slanted 8 rears or to get 2 more Submersives and cheaper (but still high efficiency coax) surrounds. Apples and oranges. Either approach would be awesome.

Another thing I'd recommend checking out is Dirac. You can use the free demo to see if it's for you. I'm the sort to talk about that in the same breath as speaker/sub upgrades, but not everyone would agree.

I've heard before about mixing different sub models but in practice it wasn't hard for me to mix not only different models, but ported and sealed together (215's with sealed 18's).

Not only was the headroom ridiculous, with almost no setup other than delay setting for the subs and one small filter the seamless integration with the mains was outstanding. No comparison to the previous set up at any listening volume. The room also now featured a full ceiling cloud with 4 inch absorbers about an inch off the ceiling. Looked good and performed really well. Here are a few pics. Had to have the lights on otherwise the screen image was too bright for my camera settings. With the lights off the speakers disappeared. Really cool.

Not convinced I was impressed with the new 212's, just click the link.

JTR 212HTRs FOR SALE
Do the new 212's come with full grills? One thing I don't like about my 210 is the horn is kind of ugly and not covered by the grill. If they were not behind the screen I would want the horn covered. I know the 215's have split grills with exposed horn.

Have you compared the 2013 and the 2016 212s side by side or do you plan to in the future?

I may consider upgrading my 2015s if there is significant difference.

On the floor?
With Atmos duty one could find oneself all of a sudden wearing a S8HT LP hat.

The first set of mounts I bought were a joke. I then got the Axiom full metal bracket. When I put the brackets up with the screws that came with the brackets, the S8's were wobbling on the wall. So I drilled out the holes on the bracket and used 2 1/2" Timberlock screws to secure to the wall (studs) and now they are "NOT" going anywhere.

Having heard LCR 210RT's (actually 5 of them) at RMAF, I'd say you should give them a try and see if you think you need more bass. Those with a pair of Submersives (crossed at 40hz) should satisfy anyone save the most bass crazed.

If you go in that direction, please try them out full range in 2 channel mode. There is something special about a full range speaker done right.

Opinions are not facts.

I do think that is the direction I will be going in.

The design will work best in a living room and the fact that I can pick up some extra bass will be a great bonus along with being a close match to my newly purchased 210rm.

I recently purchased volt 10 xl speakers for rear surround and 2 inuke 3000 dsp amplifiers. One for the center channel, and the other will be used for surround duty, Bought some silent fans also. Looking forward to messing around with the dsp on the center, It sounds like a umik 1 is the way to go.

As far as what the mains they will probably be powered by my parasound a21 and use a balanced mini dsp 2x4. Should give each main it's own in put and output on the minidsp? If not I can use the other input output for my Submersive master slave combo.

I just need to sell my Salk HT2 TL'S before I pull the trigger on the 210RT's.

The corollary is that there is something special about bass management with stereo subwoofers done right.

If you go in that direction, please try them out full range in 2 channel mode. There is something special about a full range speaker done right.
I listen to my 210RT's in full range 2 channel w/no subs all of the time. They sound great. On almost all music there is no bass difference when running full range on the 210's or crossing them over to subs. Only on some electronic or bass music does it make a difference.

Yeah well not everyone is blessed with your talent (or patience) for such things.
