I also just got a email from Amazon that my new truck grill was lost in transit with ups...... lol At least my new headphones and hood made it here!

Dear GAWD those are expensive headphones!!!....eek.gif

I paid $1589 taxes in, so much better than what they normally go for in Canada. I've recently got into headphones in the last 8 months and love it! I've got the new oppo HA-1 coming and have a set of Senn HD800, Grado ps1000, Beyer T1 and a few others. Best part is, I pretty much only use them for gaming tongue.gif
I also got a butt kicker gamer, that straps on to your computer chair! I don't know how I lived without one for all these years hahahaha.

so far the Senn 800's and fostex's are the best. the fostex have some serious bass, it's quite fun and the senn's are just stupid clean. Now that the baby is around, I turn to headphones for night gaming. Just gives me a reason to spend more money biggrin.gif

What's the low down on the 215M?

Sealed or ported?
Horizontal or vertical?
Size?
FR?

Any answers are appreciated smile.gif
Congratulations and Thanks

The RM's are sealed. 48x17x18.

I was going to have two vertical and one horizontal for the center. Then put the L and R on stands that are made of 15"SI drivers......

But I have pretty much decided to go with 2- RT's for L and R now. I can fit them after doing some measurements, so I thought why not.

The RM's are down to 60hz according to Jeff.

Also am working on a pretty insane stand for the 215RM that would add two more 18" subs to the mix. If I can pull it off, my front sound stage should be sweet. smile.gif

When I spoke with Jeff I was looking at 2 215's with a custom center, but the sealed 215's sound more like it! That has my attention. However, I am going to work on my rack and look at the 215s maybe after the summer. I have been pacing for 2 days what I should do in my rack. Looking for a new pre pro and amp. I have always loved the Anthem MRX 510 with a 7 channel, but now I am thinking of the Anthem 710 with my 3 channel Emotiva or the new Emotiva XMC-1. I know it is a gamble, but dirac is the sale!

Good call on the 215RTs for the L&R. You will be able to enjoy pure full range 2 channel with no subs if desired.smile.gif

It's a good thing you're going with the 215RTs because you'll only have 6 SI18s up front. biggrin.gif. I'm sure you'll need the extra bass. smile.gif

Boy I was happy to read this ^. The 215RT's will give you a great 2 channel option and when combined with RM and subs in stands youwill have the best front stage audio ever (seriously eek.gif).


Well played sir !!! cool.gif

I must say that I can't full credit, barely partial credit for the center "sub stand" idea. Dgage suggested it and I have heard Beastaudio's system with 6 subs, so I know the potential there. smile.gif

When this is all done, I will have 8 SI-18's in the room....hard to believe I thought I had more than enough bass a year ago at this time, when I had 3-VTF15's... lol

Godzilla.... truly epic... gonna go watch it again tomorrow...

Oh... I like the sealed 215s... if I were to upgrade that would.be the route... then I wouldn't need any mbms...

Uh, according to Jeff, the sealed 215RMs are only spec'd to go down to 60Hz. A little disappointing. So I'm not sure you could go with the sealed 215s and get rid of your MBMs.
N8DOGG's Avatar N8DOGG 11:41 AM 05-17-2014
I think anyone looking at going all sealed 215's as the L/R's should look more closely at the ported 212's. They should be pretty close in performance and save yourself a good chunk of cash.

Coach, good call going with the RT's as the LR

Actually thats exactly the range I want. The orbit shifter does a great job from 60 down to 15hz. Mbms r for 60 to 150 hz... the 212s as much as I love them is a bit thin on the mid range.

My personal preference is always separating the subs out and thus never needed a full range speaker. I rather have a sealed speaker do the best job it can at the highest efficiency above 60hz.

The 215s sealed tied to a couple of s2s could be the ultimate combination for me. It would be a truly seamless full range combination and I can turn up the bass for movies and turn it down for music. Plus I can run it with a receiver.... I have decided I like my system as simple as possible...

So 212HT's will play down to 55-60hz and the 212HT-LP's are good for 65-70hz. The 215RT's are good easily down to 20hz and Jeff is designing the 215RM's for 60hz. If I had to guess I would say the 215RM's will have quite a bit more output at 60hz compared to the 212HT's.

Considering the drivers he's using I would image he could make the 215RM's play down to 35-40hz if he wanted too.

wasn't it posted that the 215RM's were spec'd to 60hz? What I'm saying is they are not full range regardless, so vs the Sealed 15's vs ported 12's, they will be very close in performance, within a few dB's for sure.

I'm just going by what is posted, if Jeff in fact makes them flat to around 35hz, that changes it a bit but then you get into why bother vs the 210's that will be in the same range. I'm really just thinking out loud smile.gif

What do you think would be good as surrounds with that system?

Sure but that extension would come at the expense of efficiency, cabinet size and or porting. Those pesky laws of physics ... wink.gif

I think I agree with N8 (eek.gif) If you have to have a horizontal CC, then the 212HT (sealed or ported) would be the bang for buck way to go.

That said, the larger dispersion pattern of the 215 would be nice and if you are correct about the 15" woofer significantly out performing the 12" (in my experience they certainly do) the RM might make sense. Many unknowns here but I assume Coach has had numerous conversations with Jeff about this and has carefully weighed the options. smile.gif

If money and space is no object the 212s sealed.

In my case space and money are indeed an issue so prob something like the s8s or even the volt 10s

Initially he didn't think the RT's were needed for my room with my subs but after talking to him and another person, I decided why not. Might get into 2 channel stereo now. smile.gif

He worked with me as much last year on my 212's, which says a lot too because I hadn't spent a penny with him.

It would have been cool to be the first LCR 215RM owner....but oh well. Lol
