Raynist - In the meantime, I suggest you move all of the subwoofers in your various rooms to the room where you plan to put your 228s. Then your sub system might keep up and you'd have really good frequency response at all positions. LOL! J/K.

Really happy with the Black Oak veneer on the 228HTs, it matches the Black Oak on the Seaton Submersives very well...


The 228HT sitting on top of the HP+ SubM brings the horn to right about optimal height, right around ear level at the MLP.

WOW! Those look awesome. May I ask how much the upgrade to the black oak veneer cost per speaker? Have a black maple submersive and would be interested in black maple 228's.

Took those babies out of the box. Jeff's packing is certainly impressive! It seems like Fedex did not handle the boxes very well as I could see dents and cuts on the cardboard boxes but the speakers are fine because of his excellent packing.

I am unable to figure out if I have speakers standing the way they are supposed to stand, or if they are upside down. Perhaps that doesn't matter?

Also, all three speakers are going behind an AT screen so I would like to ensure that the horns are configured for the vertical orientation. How do I check that?

Make sure the tweeters are at ear level so you need to move them from top to bottom or bottom to top. As far as rotation goes, I don't think that matters.

There is no top/bottom to these speakers and the horns are by default set for a vertical speaker orientation.

if you are talking about the 228HT in the recent pics -
sorry - wrong on two counts. tongue.gif

The compression drivers can't be moved up or down as the horn has a square cut out and unless you told Jeff to custom make the cabinet (which those are not in the pictures) - the compression driver (tweeter) is stuck in the center.

The rotation does matter. The horn has a 60* x 40* dispersion pattern. You should set it up for your use preference. The default config Jeff ships with is for vertical use. Rotate the horn (the plastic square piece) 90* to have the same 60* by 40* dispersion if using the 228HT or 212HT horizontally. (as a traditional horizontal center channel)

I know that. I don't know why I thought he got the triple 8's? I can be an idiot at times lol. Good catch.

I just went back and looked and he did indeed say the 212HT's.

I was curious if there was anyone close to northern ct with jtr 228 or 212's. I would really like to listen to a pair before I pull the trigger. Thanks, Chris

However, there is NO shake or feel below 15hz all that happens is bad noises from the house. However, the Crowson is very strong below 15hz all the way down to 5hz (proabably lower, the lowest test tone I have is 5hz).


So, my choices are to have below 15hz bass be meaningless - or use the Crowson.
You are right of course, but I think it has more to do with the fact that my OS won't play below 15hz more than my sub placement, which is now 3-4 feet away from my LP.

Thanks ASU, I'm really happy with how they turned out. The veneer cost was about $200 per speaker when I ordered them last year before the price increase. Also, certain styles of veneer cost more than others so your best bet is to get an updated custom quote from Jeff. Good Luck! They are certainly worth the wait smile.gif

Hey Chris,

I might be the closest JTR owner to you willing to give a demo. (I'm a bit south of Boston) PM me and I'll see if we can set something up.

The New: I got my balanced minidsp 2x4
The Bad: My OS hums now.
The Info: Output from avr to dsp is rca. Output from dsp to OS is rca to xlr (all I have on hand).
The Good: I disconnected the jumper wire (neutral) on the input side of the dsp and the hum is gone.

And then...

The New: Wife got herself a toaster oven.
The Bad: every time the toaster oven goes into heat mode my OS hums again.
The Info: Guess they share a common ground or something.
The Good: I had a Tripp-Lite Isobar 4 ultra lying in the garage. I plugged the OS into the outlet marked 75db filter and now the hum is gone and the OS is still measuring the same on rew.

Hope this helps someone else out without needing to use dangerous cheater methods. P.s. I tried the 50db filter outlet and the hum was still there.

Well, my adventure into room treatments starts tonight. I have 3 corner bass traps that were delivered tonight so I will be setting those up. Next week I should have my first sound panels coming. Kris Deering turned me on to some neat treatments from a company called Vicoustics. Gotta prep the room before the Noesis arrive so they arrive to a nice...welcoming space smile.gif

Would placing 228s in wall (back opens to attic space) be a bad idea?

Wait till I put up some pictures to show you the screen and just how easy it would be to build the false wall!...lol

And the best part is that it's hidden behind the screen so it doesn't matter if you don't do a super pro job because no one will see it!...lol biggrin.gif

My shop teacher in high school had some words of wisdom for me: "Go to college...study hard...this shop class is no place for nancy boy like yourself...go on...scoot...get out of here" . Any false wall I design and build will cost 3 times more than it should, have no 90 degree corners to be found and will likely result in me maiming myself in some way, shape or form smile.gif

My shop teacher told me I wouldn't make it a week in college. When I completed graduate school I sent him an invitation (he didn't come). I now recognize the value of his criticism as I did well in college as a big f^#k you dude.

That's awesome! I can't believe a teacher would belittle a student like that.

In his defense I was a bit of mess back then. The late 70s early 80s were a strange time.
