My speakers will be ready this coming weekend so I'm driving up to Jeff's shop to pick them up. Three 212's, 4 S8's and 2 slanted 8's. Can't wait!

Took me 4 1/2 hours last time. It makes me nervous to ship speakers so I always try to go pick them up. And since Jeff delivered my S2's to me, I figured its my turn to head north. At least it's half the distance that I drove to Detroit to pick up the Salks.

Have you ever seen how Jeff ships them? They could literally get run over by the shipping truck and not have a mark on them. I've never seen a speaker packed better than that!

To top it off one of my kids barfed all over the car while on the highway. You get no warning with that kind of thing... it's, "I don't feel so good", and 3 seconds later it's projectile time.

Still we had a great time overall. Haha, not great enough to start planning for DisneyLand though! eek.gifbiggrin.gif

Very cool dlbeck, did you get the LP 212's and single 8's? Are you going with heights or wides?

I know you thoroughly vetted this speaker choice and pretty much know what you are in for ( cool.gif ) but please post pics and impressions.

Edit: In looking at your build thread (BTW, great space) I'm guessing double side surrounds (single 8's) and surround backs (Slanted 8's) ... correct?

Opinions are not facts.

That's what I drove for my Submersives and Triple 8's. Also before that it was the same trip for a gtg in Seatlle at Kris Deering's.

Well, I drove 8.5 hours to get my 212's and S2's tongue.gif. And I assume we're all talking one way smile.gif. I mean, we do have to come back, so it was really 17 hours.

Yeah, that sucked. biggrin.gif

Haha, man! My business partner was down there with his kids as well, which one of them followed suit with yours on their return trip as well. Which in turn made him sick along with the older daughter for the whole next week. Thanks Disney- Land of the Petri Dish

That's allot of driving, did you buy them used or did you goto the JTR headquarters? I was tempted to drive to Ohio to get my Triax's. Would have probably been about 8 hours or so each way I guess. I am glad now I did not considering they are a thousand pounds.

Back in the day I use to do some driving. We did Joisey to Georgia (Atlanta) every year in March for quite a few years for the 500 in Hampton and then Joisey to Maine for Thanksgiving with the family. I will say one thing, when my kids were babies, they were awesome. They were great to travel with, as to the best of my memory, not a peep out from either of them, ever.

Bought them new. Jeff and I both had some business in the same area and we met halfway between our locations.

My kids and I have been driving 7 hours into Vermont to go skiing nearly every weekend since they were young. They are also awesome on the drives. Never a complaint. Except if I have to sleep at a rest area for safety reasons. Man, they hate that biggrin.gif. But it's usually at 1 or 2 am and they just want to get where we're going, so I can't blame them. Good to be a passenger I suppose, keeps you fresh, lol.

Never been to Vermont, but I did get to Sunday River in Maine. My skiing days are over due to my knees, I do miss it. There was a local ski shop/pool store that did a trip to Hunter Mt in NY every week. We would meet the bus at around midnight and it would have us to the Mountain at day break and we would ski all day and into the night and then jump on the bus home. It was a party. Great time, I would love to have them days back.

Couple of questions guys....

Can the Captivator 2400 be turned on its side for playback?

Has anyone used these: http://www.jblpro.com/catalog/General/Product.aspx?PId=279&MId=1 for surround duty?

Jeff is pretty bogged down for the holidays and I need something quick........plus....If they work out well enough I can buy a second 2400 over 2 S8's.

I was strongly considering them at one point, but went with my 10 coaxial DIY design instead. If you like to build at all, or know how to glue wood panels together, you should give the DIY coaxials a shot.

Beast, I would love to do that.....The builder for this house was going to charge us 2,800.00usd for a riser in our theater room.....We said "Hell no.", broke out the Miter Saw and got to work. 270.00 bucks later and we have a floating, rope lit, carpeted, riser in our theater that looks great! We also are in the process of doing our own acoustic paneling (burlap, stereo cloth and rockwool).

Problem is, we are having a big get together at the house on Saturday and I want to have the theater running at least 5.1 and sounding good. Don't know if that will leave enough time for DIY speakers to be shipped and built on my end.

Whoa, yea! Pushing it a little close are we? Haha. Considering the design hasn't been cemented in yet, the time frame should be around another month or so.

Yup...That's how we do it here. Procrastination!

Exploring options now....I shouldn't have waited so long, to get this done lol.

I am using the 8340A's for surround and surround back duty.... They were quite the upgrade over my Klipsch RS-62II's and have blended nicely with my 212HT's...
