We will see .
I've had this idea of using t12lp's for surrounds in my room which has t8's for back & surrounds x6 . The 215's for LCR duty would bring a new dimension of possibility.
All I need would be one more t12lp and three 215's . tongue.gif

Of course I like the way you think ... (validates my insanity tongue.gif). Jeff has been measuring all morning. Won't even let me in the room ... tongue.gif I think he thinks he is going to give me the Jeff Permanian sound. Little does he know that once he is gone, things will be tweaked. As the creator, I am indulging him. smile.gifwink.gif

Do the 215s have 2 part grills? One for each 15" driver leaving the horn exposed.

With the Badass system you already have you would need to go Extreme to make a noticeable difference. The 215RTs are Extreme. ( & Mean looking)

Chris

Hey Chris,
Right the 215RTs are extreme and definitely will make a statement, they look aggressive which I like. I'd have to make some adjustments at the front wall but it's worth it. I like re- constructing areas of my room to accommodate new ideas that to me may enhance the HT experience. smile.gif
Music also has to be addressed and so I've yet to think about how to do it. I sure I'll find the help here on the forum when the time comes.
I am still a big fan of the t12s, it is a perfect HT speaker as far as I'm concerned.
I can't wait for Rob's review it will be interesting how he likes things without subs up front.
For me I will still hookup subs, after all what will I do with my eight sub drivers.biggrin.gif
But I'm getting ahead of myself. I have not put an order in as of yet.

Hey Tom, good to hear from you. I'm not expecting the system to sound better than past systems, Just different and by that I mean a bit more controlled. We shall see ...

That is a very sensible statement and position. i think I have said the same thing myself. I hope you have more self control ... wink.gif

Nope, it would be a shame to cover up that front baffle. In fact, they look so cool that I almost wish they weren't behind the screen.

Rob, at least your screen retracts. wink.gif So really you still can see those very handsome masculine bad boys, I was about to refer to them as beauties but that's femine sounding . They are very macho looking. biggrin.gif

That PONO demo is something I'd love to hear more about...that's great you guys managed to get a demo. I'm about to order a turntable for now...

Btw, did you get the 'standard' JTR finish?...for some reason, I thought the 215 standard would be glossy piano black...I'm likely confusing speculation with facts.

glossy black is an upgrade charge. Veneering or polishing a speaker that large is a pretty significant upgrade charge I'll wager. tongue.gif

Will the Pono player use iTunes? This is the same player that Neil Young had a hand in right?

How about some speaker porn?










We have EQ'd them with the Rane and the LFE has been low passed to the LCR cjhannels. Jeff got them flat (to 16Hz) with the PEQ in the Rane and then we ran an 8 position Audyssey. All is level matched and then we played lots of music and several movie clips AOF, FOTF, WOTW and This is It . At this point all I can say is HOLY $HITE!

Seriously fellas, I am majorly stoked about these speakers.

RMK if you can get a hold of " Titan A.E." the ice field scene is pretty awesome, i use it as a demo quite a bit. Or of course the hulk sound cannon scene, thats always a crowd pleaser.

On top of that, I ordered my second S2 March 20th.. amazingly I got tracking info on friggin Tuesday the 25th! He was doing some serious work before he headed out to Cali!

BTW, RMK, congrats on the new toys. Enjoy the GTG this weekend, keep the photos coming. I look forward to hearing everyone's impressions. cool.gif

Man, the JBL's have a stench to them that is like old insulation coupled with an un-showered for a month hippie bonch. I don't know if it will ever go away. The 4648's when I had them certainly out-gased everything they had in them literally the first couple times I played them hard. Then I would fire them back up a few days later and they would stink again. I am hoping the 2242's won't operate the same way.
