PRO# has been emailed and new speaker day will either be Wednesday or Thursday.

Dgage dropped off my 215RM stand today, so I am anxious to get "back into business".

I think the jury is out and yes, at least 7 and probably 9-11 (or more) speakers will be necessary. I agree with your priorities but electronics and video are so volatile that more/better speakers is always easier for me justify (I'm saying this to the man with 212 LCR's and 3 Orbit Shifters ).

I have my Slanted 8 SB's firing up now and just level matched them. I watched a few movie clips and it's hard to tell a difference. I'll leave it this way for a while and try some challenging surround effects movies.

Can you please PM me the lead time and price of your custom Slanted 8's?

I am stocked to get these hooked up. Like I previously stated, not so stoked about getting them in the room...lol

Just toss one over each shoulder and get it over with. Hopefully, you have good medical insurance.

Coach said I should post a picture of his 215RM center channel stand so here it is. Coach needed a place to put his sub amp so I made a pocket in back. I'm a DIY woodworker constantly getting better at using my extensive tool collection and this box is the best I've made to date. Makes me want to go back and rebuild my enclosures.

I have been very fortunate to have met both David(Dgage) and Brandon(Beast) in the last year and half. Brandon initially introduced me to the world of DIY subs and what they can do. A year ago, I had three HSU VTF-15H's. Today I have 8-SI18's. None of that would have been possible with out their help because I have ZERO DIY ability, nor the tools to execute a build like this.

These two have been awesome at helping me spend my money and feed my upgraditis....

I can't wait to get the 215RM on top of it.

And with all of the S8 talk, here are my normal Slanted 8s custom mounted in the ceiling for the rears and side surrounds. I guess I need to get a completed picture but I'm not home right now. Suffice it to say they blend in pretty well when painted and with white grill cloth.

For the record Coach, I did try to talk you off the ledge of buying the 215RTs. Hell, that was one of the reasons I offered to build you the center channel stand, so that you would have more than enough wooferage to go with your 212s. Little did I know you'd go with #7 and 8 SI18s AND(!!!!) the 215RTs.

I have my Slanted 8 SB's firing up now and just level matched them. I watched a few movie clips and it's hard to tell a difference. I'll leave it this way for a while and try some challenging surround effects movies.

The book of Eli scene with the Gatling gun id VERY surround demanding. Especially when they began zooming in on it! I also have been rewatching the Transformers movies getting prepared for this weekend for the 4th in imax. Anyway the ending fight scene in the 2nd (Revenge of the Fallen) has some very demanding scenes. Some of the surround scenes on the demo discs could be replaced IMO.

Posh, that's only 90lbs more each than the t12's and noesis. I lugged mine around solo all the time It wasn't fun, but I still managed to get them up and down once or twice...

That pocket is slick! Good work on the enclosure Didn't want to recess those woofers tho? Your enclosures looked just fine IMO dude. Now just go get you some veneer for those JTR's.

Oh and Jeff, thanks for the kind words, I love spending other people's money, but I am wayyy better at helping them save it Away from this site that is...

We talked about recessing the woofers but the woofers look sick sticking out like that and it matches the DO boxes you built. I played with his subs for a few days before delivering the enclosure and had the enclosure on its back with the woofers facing up and it was awesome looking down and seeing the woofers get some nice excursion going. Since the enclosure isn't dual-opposed and canceling out each sub's motor force, the enclosure is pretty tactile and sounds great.

I do indeed need to veneer my 212s as I might be selling them soon to upgrade to the 215RM or the Danley HT speaker.

Talk about awkward, try moving a pair of triax's. I am going to buy furniture movers to move them into the new theater when it is time. Hopefully I can coax the driver to help me get the the 215s in their new home when they arrive.

I see you gave Jeff the heavy end.

I swear these seem like more than twice as heavy as the 212's, I've carried those by myself and I would rather do that again than carry the heavy end of the 215 again.

I told Grant that Jeff's scale is jacked up!

yeah, he (being much younger) insisted but that was the first speaker. I got that end for the next one. He wanted to rest after two of them but I am a slave driver . The 212's are at my self imposed lift alone limit.

Ya, the 215's are pretty heavy lol. I had to go downstairs so it was done in 10 minutes for both with a dolly. Wasn't to bad, though I'd not want to take them back upstairs lol.

When I had my giant 15 cf ported subs, my basement flooded and the subs took on a bunch of water, we had to get them out and it was at the limit of what 2 people could do. We just barely got them up the stairs with a 3 ton dolly... The company that was stripping the basement's driver helped me. We weight them before and they were 376 lbs with driver..... Should have taken the 80lb driver out before we moved them hahahahah!!

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

Coach, I so wish I could be there to help you carry them up to the room but I have a good excuse of being out of town. Yep, so glad I'm not there for the lift. Can't wait to hear them on Friday...I'm inviting myself over.
