decision is made, I'm going to order 215RM's. Will be a very close match for my 210RM center, and my submersives.

I agree, the 210RT's had surprisingly good LF extension without the size penalty of the 215RT's. That said, the 215RT's were able to replace Noesis 212 LCR's and dual Orbit Shifters in my HT and not once have I thought, I need more bass. I think the reason my bass appetite is less than many is that my baby boomer generation didn't grow up with Rap music and a trunk full of subwoofers like the Gen X/Y'ers and millennials. I was that old guy in the car next to you yelling "turn that s**t down!" Guess in a way, I'm still that guy

I'm looking forward to it, they extend deeper than the 210rt's and keeping everything sealed has to have benefits.

It'll make for an easier time potentially blending them with your subM's but even if you had have gone with the 210's, it's not that hard of a problem to overcome.

Surround Speakers

I am looking to upgrade my surround speakers. Am I right I dont really have to match the mains? I have a big room - would I get a noticable improvement from the slanted 8's versus my current paradigm studio 20's?

No they do not "extend deeper". The RT's -3db point is 38hz. The RM is 80hz. Same 95db sensitivity.

Having exact matching (other than orientation) is nice. Try and get the CD's at the same height or as close as you can. It really is no problem since you have the Submersive's but running them full range in 2 channel is probably not a good idea.

Yeah, in the spirit of getting s**t off of my chest, it was nice the way you mentioned to my wife about my prolific posting here and you continue to bring it up. Look, I'm not proud of my one dimensional life but I don't need you continually reminding me (and others) of that fact ... and I thought we were brizzos ...

Cool to see that happened so fast. Every other thread has at least a 20 month advantage in start time so lots of people have talked about JTR in a fairly short time. It probably helps this is such a laid back thread and generally everyone likes each other.

He got the 215RM's for L/R.

They extend 6hz deeper (38 to 32hz) than the 210RT's.

I'm referring to the 215RM's not the 210RM that I have for a center. I think the 215RM's will make a better match than the 210rt's

I see that (now ) I'm not only old, I'm dyslexic.

In any case, that is a great call. Congrats!

And he builds a rock solid product. Perhaps they aren't inexpensive but I've always said I think JTR is a solid value because of price vs performance. Now let's get to catching those Polkies.

After the 3rd upgrade of my original Triple 12's I realized that Jeff was into this for the love of doing it more than making money. His entire modus operandi is driven by his high standards of performance rather than margins. No one hand builds cross overs like he does. No one puts the design time into making custom woofers like he does. The differences between his products and others are subtile if you don't look deep. It's like a comparing a completely utilitarian inexpensive hammer, to a true commercial grade product (I did carpentry before nail guns ). All depends upon how much hammering you do and how long you want it to last. When he says built to last a life time, he isn't kidding.

Do you already have JTRs up front?
I never realized that my surrounds were lacking before I got my 212 LCRs (which completely outclassed them.)
