Chris

I just looked at the Triax.. they look pretty good...

Ultra-low bass (20-31.5 Hz): 125.8dB
Low bass (40-63Hz): 136.9dB

Anyone knows what SPLs the Orbit Shifter gets for above 20hz?

Can the 3 15inch beat out the OS? I am thinking no, but who knows...??

I was able to get in touch with Jeff via the phone.

Based on what the KC guys said and talking to Jeff about the differences between the 228 and 212 I think I am going to go with the 228's as LCR's.

The price shipped to me with a 5% discount and offering the $1199 price still makes it about $500 less than I was thinking I would spend. I honestly didn't ever even expect to pay this much for LCR's - gotta hope the wife doesn't fine out.....

I think the 228's are going to be so much better than what I currently have that I will not miss the small differences noted on movies, especially if I go with a 100-120hz cross over like suggested several times here. If it ever comes time that I go with an AT screen, I could always move the 228's to the back and grab the 212's for the front. I never listen above -15 to -10 on currently so I probably wouldn't get the most out of the 212's. I probably don't listen that loud though because my current speakers don't sound very good past that.

I plan on calling and placing the order later today, man the month wait is going to kill me!!!

Thanks for everyone's help and sorry to be a pain with all of the questions.

I would think not, especially because the Triax is sealed. I would expect it to have similar output to the S2.

Are those numbers above for 1m or 2m?

-edit the numbers above are CEA-2010 at 1 meter.

Feeling the pressure...lol. I'd venture to say that Carp's most recent transducer purchase would be more tactical/fun than what my nearfield has to offer, but I'm looking forward to their feedback as well.

I'm sure this is subjective but I seem to much prefer the brute force strength of even 2 of my LMS 5400s compared to the transducers in the seat. It doesn't happen often but when the entire coach shakes, that is damn impressive. Of course, some that are on concrete slabs probably can't make that happen so in that case I'd probably go for transducers too.

Good choice (even if you didn't go with my recommendation tongue.gif) . cool.gif

Don't be surprised if you find yourself listening louder at times. With these speakers, the louder they play the better they sound. But if you have more self control that many here, you will be very happy at your -10 to -15. Thats about where most of us are for day to day. smile.gif

Jeff is a hard guy to get in touch with! I have sent several emails, a few phone calls and a few messages. What is the best way to get a hold of him?

I have 212HT-LPs and Coach has the 212HTs. We haven't put the two speakers side by side but I was able to go over and hear Coach's very nice system. In a double blind I doubt anyone could tell a difference between the two if properly setup. Meaning I think you could reach the same performance in a room with either speaker assuming the surrounding gear is up to similar standards. And of course with those speakers, based on reading, treatments would matter much more than which of those two speakers were in the room.

I haven't heard the 228 but from everything I've read, the smile on your face after listening to your 228s will make you forget JTR even has a better speaker. It's like the Porsche 911 GT4 vs Porsche 911 Turbo (I've driven neither), there is a great price difference but not such a performance difference. Don't worry about it, just enjoy what you have, which will be awesome damn speakers to go with your awesome damn sub system!

Wait.....you guys x over your 228s at 100 to 120hz? And here I've been doing 60 and 80hz.

My sub unscrews light bulbs, pops nails, and wakes up babies.

The OS with it's 14 ft folded horn is "Another Animal" with few if any equals above 20hz. Multiple sealed subs may equal the SPL output but it would not have the Presence the OS commands.

The OS creates a Unique experience.

IMO, 80 Hz is best practice.

I have been reading a paper once where some directivity down to 45 Hz was experienced, but not by all listeners.

It is b/c he has 3 Triax's (sealed sub) with a total of 9 x 15" woofers that may sound better than the 6 x 8" woofers in three 228s or 6 x 12" woofers in three 212s below 100-120hz.

I have read where Double J(AE Speakers) and BeastAudio recommend a XO a full octave above the speakers limits.

It might not either but its a suggestion worth trying.smile.gif

I would like to see the FR both ways.

I believe it...

I have a couple of sealed 15s from HSU and they each have a 1000 watts amp. I think it'll take 8 of those to equate the output of the OS...

As stated already, 80HZ is the norm ...probably because THX stated that many years ago. I always used 80HZ until recently and bumped it up to 100HZ. I always felt (not sure why), that it wasn't "manly" to cross your sub that high but it works great. The question becomes what can cover the 80 to 100/120HZ better, your mains or your subs.

Yeah, I tried crossing at 100, 120, even 50 and 60, but still preferred 80hz in the end... I don't think 'true subs' do above 100hz well...

I believe a dedicated 18 inch mid bass unit might bridge the gap between 80-150hz...

This Is an advantage of a sealed sub. I would imagine Dgage's sealed LMS 5400s kick ass up to 120hz.smile.gif The OS will start to localize or reveal its location above 80hz as do most ported designs.

There is no one XO best for all situations. 80hz XO is a great place to start.

I agree, I think general practice is to cross over at around 80 Hz. However, some, including myself cross their SUBS at 100 or 120 Hz so there is overlap.

Of course, realize that phase issues could cause issues with overlapping frequencies so I'd recommend reviewing your system with some frequency analysis to ensure the overlapping frequencies aren't canceling themselves out. Then again, even if you crossed over subs and speakers at 80Hz, there could still be phase issues.

I just came back from listening to the 228 for a couple of hours today. I demo'd both movies and music.

I can tell you without a doubt, the 228 perform very well for both movies and music. At -20 to -15 comfortable volume, the music is extremely clear and anything louder is a walk in the park. I honestly don't think you will notice anything missing unless you do an a/b test side by side. With the right subs, these will perform effortlessly for majority of users and still have a lot of headroom left over. You may have to try different placement angles and height to maximize the LP performance.

With that being said, only an audition will determine if you like the kind of sound they produce...this subjective test is the only thing missing. I'm pretty sure you'll be thrilled with your choice even then.

Lastly, make sure you feed them the best audio sources..they won't hesitate to crap out any crap that goes in.

I was in the same boat for a while and never got a chance to audition before ordering, so I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other specific questions I can answer while it's all fresh in my mind.

I can attest to that. The volume starts creeping up as the movie goes on. What seems loud at the beginning seems too low 5 minutes later. And my wife doesn't complain as I keep jacking up the volume. smile.gif we just get more immersed into the movie. I honestly can't believe how great everything sounds now.

Well, Jeff isn't the best at responding to inquiries hence his hiring a person to work the phones/email. I think he forgot to give her a phone and computer so she really hasn't been of much help with the communications ... maybe she is doing final assembly tongue.gif.

But seriously Nate, you order a custom cabinet and crossover knowing the guy can't say no during his busiest time of the year and then talk smack when he doesn't respond to your calls... really ? Hell, he probably doesn't want to take your calls for fear you'll want some other one-off hybrid something or other.

Oh and while I'm at it, why don't you cut back to say 5 or 6 mega subs and get yourself an AT screen? Then you wouldn't need custom horizontal centers or grills. tongue.gifwink.gif

J/K Nate, you know I love you man ... smile.gif

Given that now I only respect people who own JTR speakers smile.gif I wanted to ask an off topic question: I only watch blu ray movies and HD Sports and listen to music off my ipad, is it worth getting an oppo blu ray player?

Yes it is but the 103 is plenty. I have the 95 and spent $200 on rca cables from Blue Jean. I have never used them so the 93 would have done just as well at half the price.

But seriously Nate, you order a custom cabinet and crossover knowing the guy can't say no during his busiest time of the year and then talk smack when he doesn't respond to your calls... really ? Hell, he probably doesn't want to take your calls for fear you'll want some other one-off hybrid something or other.

Oh and while I'm at it, why don't you cut back to say 5 or 6 mega subs and get yourself an AT screen? Then you wouldn't need custom horizontal centers or grills. tongue.gifwink.gif

J/K Nate, you know I love you man ... smile.gif


Yeah but I remember last summer or something like that Nate waited 3 months or so past the expected shipping date to say anything to Jeff - so I'd say he's pretty patient. smile.gif

IMO the slow response time is the only chink in the JTR armor... but so worth it for what you get for your money.


Rob's right though Nate, it's time for AT.... oh wait.... I was thinking of myself. tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

Thanks. So the picture and sound quality will be much better than a $100 sony blu ray player? What about the 103d with the Darby thingy in it?

A custom speaker requires a custom XO. Jeff spends a long time on this. when I ordered my 2012 T12s at the end of 2011 it took him an extra 3 weeks just to tweak the XO from the 2011 model. Same exact speaker just an update tweak.

Big fan of Oppo. Great picture, great build quality, great design,etc... Mine has been rock solid. They also have a high resale value if you ever want to switch down the road.

I had a Pioneer bdp 43 fd elite ($499) that I replaced and it was a noticeable upgrade on picture and audio quality. It plays CDs on a different level then any other Blu-ray I have had.

I consider myself "a picky MF" when it comes to watching Blu-Rays and listening to CDs. The OPPO is the best I have come across.
