Long time lurker. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on some speakers for my new theater and the triple 12s go on sale. I need some advice from those that have heard both the T12 and Noesis 228. How do they compare sound-quality wise? I know the T12 can be driven louder, which would be nice, but I'm more focused on sound quality. Usage is 80/20 movies/music, and they will be in a dedicated, treated room with an AT screen. One sub to start (an svs pb12-nsd from before) but will probably add more later. Ultimately I'd like to add 4 slant-8s for a 7.1 system, but want to invest in a good front stage first and go from there. It'll be driven by an x4000 or the new incarnation to start. Thanks.
Edit: the only other speaker on my list for front stage is the JBL 3677. If any of you have heard those and can comment versus the 2 JTRs listed above, that would be fantastic.
