proper placement of panels makes a huge difference in the impulse response. I am starting to see (hear actually) that IR, decay times and FR really tell you a lot. In the past I had way too much emphasis on FR only. Also I see a big improvement in bass decay with moving mass that would be very difficult to get with even several feet of pink fluffy.

Yes exactly! A good exercise is to take a very thin reflective type surface such as a utility rug, pieces of wood or whatever and place them on the floor in front of your front mains. Get some listening time then remove them. You will introduce some nasty reflections that would also measure on the impulse graph. You can also use the right click feature on REW to measure the distance. Not down to the inch but decently close. After removing you will see what it is like taming nasty first point reflections! smile.gif Although most here know what they are doing. But specular reflection panels can really improve your speakers! Especially the floor and ceiling. Side not is removing if you have plush carpet.

I sold my 212's so it's official, I'm getting a pair of the 215's and in case it isn't obvious ^ I'm just a little bit excited about it (I do get carried away, when it comes to this hobby I'm like a little kid tongue.gifbiggrin.gif). If it weren't for seeing pictures I wouldn't have been interested but the minute I saw them I knew I was in trouble. I mean seriously... look at that last picture ^ how bad a$$ is that!!!! cool.gif Makes me glad I don't have an AT screen. smile.gif

I haven't had full range speakers since college, can't wait!!

I'm very curious to see what the results for bass will be for music. I've read for years that full range makes no sense because the best placement for the speakers is almost never the best place for the bass, so it's better to have separate subs. Then here recently I've read quite a few posts about how the time domain is better with full range and that it is very hard to duplicate that with subs no matter how much tweaking is done so I don't know what to think.... but I guess I'll find out.

Hey Carp...

Seeing those pictures has me SUPER excited and SUPER nervous at the same time.... lol

Not sure how much fun it will be dragging those up my steps..

Hopefully I will find out in about two weeks. eek.gif

Having had full range speakers for a long time, and still will...

Nothing beats having the subs integrated in to the mains for 2 channel music. wink.gif

Good thing is Dgage can be to my house in less than 7 minutes, so I am covered on transporting these guys upstairs.. haha.

Jeff seemed confident that he would have drivers and cabinets in stock in enough time for my order. smile.gif

This is what I am waiting to hear from you. I would rethink how my setup is aligned if you truly find the integration that much better. I would likely at that point use the DCX to attempt to mesh the 18's together better with the danleys to create a full range theoretically speaking... Might be fun to try anyways.

Would be hard to go go bigger! I definitely see the draw. I hate playing playing pink noise and hearing it from four distinct locations up front.

Yep, they will be the pair that will be played at the gtg. Haha, hopefully Jeff doesn't blow them up. biggrin.gif

So, I will be taking up my wife's new minivan. Stow and go seats were designed with JTR 215's in mind. Jeff is also bringing a 212 for Grant to go with the 2 212's he bought from me.

Congrats carp.. I'm sure as a hardcore audiophile as yourself. I know you'll be very pleased with the 215's. You, RMK, N8, and COACH are lucky to have experience almost a full line of JTR speakers and subs. I wish I got to do that. But I'm not as hardcore as you guys. Matter of fact, I've been in the JTR club less then a year. And just hanging out around the JTR forum with all you guys impression gives me confidence in purchase.

I don't understand how it would work exactly, but it sounds like a worthwhile experiment! Would the subs be in the same spots? I assume you don't want to lose that quarter point placement.

I hope to hear some Dream Theater and Sabbath on those puppies in Dec/Jan! Will probably make me want to sell body parts on the black market.

Heck yeah man, I'm off school then - perfect time for a long listening session! If you haven't heard the Metallica movie by then that will be required as well.

By then you will be able to get a good used price from me as I anxiously await the JTR 224's. eek.gifwink.gif

Jeff told me I could keep the pair that he's bringing for a couple weeks. Possession is 99% of the battle. Sorry buddy.

Cool man, no problem at all! I have a lot of free time in the summer so I would be more than happy to lounge around your place and hang out in your theater room for 2 weeks!! tongue.gifwink.gif

Can we really call Carp an audiophile? I always understood an audiophile to try reproducing the signal as close as possible to the original...you know, with responses that are given in +- 2db from 20K to 20 Hz. smile.gif With Carp it would be more like +- 2db from 20K to 100 and then +10 or +15...not exactly audiophile...and since most of us on this JTR thread have similar tastes...how did the JTR Speaker, an audiophile class speaker...get bastardized to such an extent? smile.gif

Yep same spots, would just switch the AVR to full range and take a L/R out to the DCX and actively cross there. Could be very feasible.

I wanted to make sure that my comments were not taken as a dig at Carp per se but many on this thread that like our bass a little hot. But I looked up the definition of audiophile and all of us meet the first definition I linked to...and I'm sure some would also for the second definition but we don't need to discuss that.

Don't be back pedaling now dgage. Carp is really ticked and actually told me he wants to challenge you to an arm wrestling match on 6/28. It's going to be epic.

All I know is if I do ever find myself in an arm wrestling match the key is to do a lot of really loud short burst shouting and use as many hercky-jercky movements as possible. Archaea never knew what hit him.

Lol..back in high school my buddies dad did professional arm wrestling tournaments since he was a baby. My buddy was 145lbs soaking wet and nobody knew about his dad but me. He would always take on the strongest guys in the school and the older kids too and just play with them. He knew the perfect technique.. It really was funny to watch since his dad trained him since he was little..lol

My cousin is dating Canadian arm wrestling champ Ryan Espey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTAFFKgxqM0 and it's crazy how technical it can be. He's 6'6, 290lbs and his arms are bigger than my legs lol. It's pretty funny when at parties and stuff, people find out he's a pro, everyone always wants to have a go at him. I can't even beat him with 2 arms and my legs! lol
