So nobody else has any more thoughts on how the 228s would do as surrounds?

Is there a reason a 228 LP is not an option on Jeff's web page?

Using the 212HT and 212HT-LPs as an example, there is about a 10Hz difference in their low end output. With the 228HT going down to 70Hz, a sealed version might be down -3db at 80Hz, which may not be low enough for Jeff's liking.

Use any bracket. Make a piece of mdf the exact size of the back of the S8, use the 4 mounting holes and attach the piece to the S8 with 4 flat top screws, then drill into the piece and attach any mount you want to it. then you're S8 will say hole free!

Okay... I've tested movies extensively on my 228 cap2000 theater and here are my favorites.

Book of Eli gatlin gun scene...it is substantial. Calibrate your system if it's not beefy enough. I have 228s and it rocks the house.

50 cal machine gun scene at the end of the latest Rambo. This movie is full of excellent gun battle audio, but the last scene is intense.

Heat gun battle in the city. Classic.

The last star trek. The scene where Khan eliminates a battalion of Klingons has some of the best audio ever.

Open range, final gun fight. It's mixed really, really hot. Gun shots are life like.

20 mm saving private ryan. Classic.

I'm sure your right. It's just interesting that the T8 gets an LP version, but not the 228.

Are you running 228s all around in a 5.1 or greater setup? If so, how do you like them for surround use?

I think it has to do with the size of the horn not allowing for a reduction in the size of the cabinet.

I love my 228s. The only competition to them is the 212 and that's just in music. I haven't heard the 215s yet.

If you're looking at using 228s for surround in movies, it should sound great. That being said. ... im not sure you would notice much of a difference between s8s and the 228s for surround duty in movies.

For multi channel music....it will sound really good. The only way it gets better for multi channel is 5.1, all 212s.

My buddy read the "Lone Survivor" book before seeing the movie, and then watched the movie over at my place. He said the movie was actually toned down compare to the book, the book described everyone's injuries way more graphic then what was shown in the movie.

This is exactly the reason why, the compression driver and waveguide don't leave enough room for a "LP" version.

You could easily run a full 228HT setup for mains and surrounds, granted if you have enough room. But I still don't see why its needed unless you have cash burning a hole in your pocket. Unless you are listening to multichannel music all of the time its total over kill.

Do I think it would be awesome? HELL yeah, but totally unnecessary. At least for movie use IMHO, you're far better off putting that money towards other areas of your room. Whether that's more subs or even room treatments & EQing everything.

Toe you said your room is 12x17 sealed. Hell just a setup of S8's would make your ears bleed if you really wanted them too...lol

I can't see how you could use more then three 228HT's for LCR's and some Slant 8's, S8's or S8-LP's in that room.

I do a fair amount of multichannel music listening, plus I just like knowing I have the exact same speakers all around for a totally seamless stage. If these speakers are as good as you guys say, I will get 10-20 years out of them so I don't mind spending the $$$$. I have been using my S-38s for 12 years now, so speakers are not something I upgrade often like projectors. Not to mention there is really not much incentive to go with the S8 from a $$$$ perspective IMO since they are close in price to the T8 or 228. The pricing is a bit odd to me for the S8.

I have basic treatments (bass traps and first reflection panels) eq and 4 subs that I am still pretty happy with. The weak link in my system right now is my mains.

Okay, then hell yes buy an all 228HT setup. Honestly when I bought mine I had 0% interest in using them for music, I was basically all movies, with occasional use while watching some sports and once in a while my son will want to play his xbox in the theater. But I can honestly say that I use them for at least 30% music use now. I find myself taking my laptop down into the theater room and doing some work down there while listening to music because I enjoy my 228HT's so so much smile.gif

7 channels of 228HT's will provide you with many many years of enjoyable listening.

I also thought the pricing seemed high on the S8's until I really started to break down the costs. The BMS 4550 compression driver and 8CN552 coax cost around $500 for the two of them, then you factor in a finished speaker cabinet built out of Baltic birch and not some cheap MDF and a hand built cross over. Once all of this is taken into account the pricing for the S8 seems to make sense, at least too me it does. smile.gif

I have yet to see a crossover from a JTR speaker that wasn't basically a work of art. Jeff is very OCD about his crossovers, extremely high quality crossovers IMO.

I think 5 of them would be a nice number.

After having lived with the 215's for a month, I feel that 5 of them in my room run full range would be truly epic. Honestly if I only had one row of seats, I would probably be pulling the trigger now but with the second row of seats placement is difficult. I've got some other things going on now that make waiting till next year to work this out advisable. Nothing will happen short term but I find the idea very interesting. cool.gif
