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.)

Are you unhappy with the Studio 20's? Assuming you have Studio mains (100's or 60's) and center channel, adding high efficiency speakers like the Slanted 8's as surrounds would be seem to be a poor match. I think matching the LCR's is most important with matching surrounds being slightly less important unless you're into multi-channel music.

If you're really interested, you need to hear what a full compliment of high efficiency speakers can do for surround sound (music or movies). That is the best way to know if this is worth the your time, effort and hard earned $. Many AVS members are willing to provide demos and it is likely that someone is near you.

I was having thoughts about selling my 215RT's and moving back into the 212HTR's or just put my 212HT's in the theater and find something for the living room. However I did some 2 channel listening last night and then watched Southpaw with the wife and I pretty much got it out of my head, the 215RT's are not going anywhere, they are just incredible. BTW I watched Southpaw and it was great!! I was really surprised at how much I liked it. If you have not seen it, I suggest you do.

Why were you even thinking on selling the 215's? Space taken?

I get the feeling a lot of JTR users go with Seatons for their subs. Is there any reason to do so?

Seaton makes great subs, but I don't think that is the case. Lots of DIY, JTR and others (I have PSA).

I went with 2 S2s to go with the rest of my JTR system. But I do think seaton builds a great sub

I know a few Seaton sub owners who purchased JTR speakers. Mark and Jeff are very good friends and both make excellent products so its not surprising to see systems containing both.

I've owned JTR Captivators and later Seaton Submersives. Both were awesome. The only reason I went DIY is because I could get more bass for the buck.

I have JTR 212HT (R) LCR & S8s for surround with Seaton HP+ master/slave nearfield & JTR S1 up front. All blend well and sound incredible . My custom painted S8s should be here Tuesday so my slanted 8s are for sale in the classifieds.

I like that the sealed F2's up front blend nicely with the 215 RM's...same driver platform and both are sealed designs. Whether or not this means a more cohesive soundstage, I'm sure it doesn't hurt.

The fact that I have the Seatons and REALLY like their performance has me not considering anything else. If it ain't broke....

Any one of Jeff's designs are very nice and capable as well. Other folks like the DIY route or other ID companies subs. Options are good.

BTW- when you going to start your build?

I just feel I could stretch out a set of 228HTR's or 212HTR's a little bit more. But when I put them on and sink in for a good film or a couple of hours of music, those thoughts go away.
