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.

I was pretty excited when I drove to pick up my two Submersives. The first one in all my zeal I bear hugged and had to clear the back/head rest of a Berkline recliner on the left side. The equipment rack was to the right and not enough room to just walk through holding it. I am 5'11" so it was a bit of a little surge up and over. It was like going full throttle into a crossfit workout

Make sure you put an HPF in place on the 215HT if you are going to run them for all they are worth. Just like a ported sub the drivers don't have any protection below port tune and excursion can go wild quickly. Before we put the HPF in place at dlbecks those drivers moved a couple times for all they were worth. The excursion on Bass I Love you and Boxenkiller with no HPF was frightening powered by the Cherry monoblocks. With the J-River HPF in place no more concern!

Me and my son moved my Triax's. I knew the triax's were going to be difficult when I unboxed them. I told my son this is going to be hard and if you feel like you are going to drop it, get mad and scream. He never dropped it, but man we were both screaming. We were laughing the whole time. It was unbelievably hard. I wish Gorilla lived closer, I needed some power lifting

I apologize for my lack of knowledge. Are you referring to a High Pass Filter? Not sure how I would add this or how it is done...

Coach, yes. High pass filter.

An easy way would be to use an amp with a built in DSP like the Behringer iNuke, Peavey IPR with DSP or other. Alternately you could use something like the mini dsp in the signal chain.



If you've already got an amp situated and you don't have any digital dsp option than something like the Behringer mic2200 is a cheap HPF option as well. Costs about $90 new or $50 used. It has an analog HPF dial you can set at 20hz and be done.

I am going to be using àn NanoAvr with the new speakers. Maybe that will have an option for a HPF.

Thank you for the information.

Coach has the NanoAVR but I don't know if he has hooked it up yet. I will definitely help set it up on Friday but here is a picture of the configuration page. However, you might want to go with a 24db high pass.

P.S. Can someone tell me how to attach/upload a picture while showing something a little larger than a thumbnail?

Very solid match IMO. The dsp rocks and that amp gives out about 2k watts real world power per channel at 4 ohms.

Carp is going to borrow one of my two to compare how much stronger it is in real world use than his dsp 3000 on the 215ht.

Yeah, that quick hitting 8hz note on Bass I Love You is scary. How low can you set a HPF on your mic2200?

Looks like the KC group is still up. Does anyone know what frequency the crossover is set to on the compression driver in the single 8's? It was brought up in a discussion I was having and I can't seem to find that spec anywhere. Not that it really matters, we were just interested. I'll ask Jeff if no one knows off the top of their heads.

Dave and anyone else in need of moving large, heavy, and bulky objects - If you don't have a set of shoulder dollys, GET THEM.

http://www.amazon.com/Shoulder-Dolly...=movers+straps

I've used these to move 300+ pound large objects with my wife. @ChopShop1 and I carried my DTS-10s (5 ft long, 300lbs each) out of the basement using these and one arm just to stabilize as we were walking up my from hill.

At the big speaker comparo at Rilla's the April before last, we watched the cats pound out some full range stuff and it was incredible how far the drivers were moving...all while Mark was sitting there just amused. After seeing that, I knew my td12x's had a lot more in them before they would give up the goat...That is for sure!

Yep they were what I was referring to. I defiantly need to get them. I am going to look them up today on Amazon and get them ordered. I should have done it along time ago. One of those things you forget about till you need it.

Those are pretty nifty looking... I might have to see if Home Depot or Lowes has them.

If they don't, Amazon does. However I am sure you need them now !! The greatest thing I ever did was get Amazon prime. I seen it on there for a couple of years and finally used the free one month trial of prime. It has been a life saver with building my theater. I was able to get stuff I could not get local in two days, sometimea one day. I just got home this morning and found my quiet putty pads I needed. The wife will be on the ladder tonight putting putty pads on the low voltage boxes.

It doesn't appear that they either place stocks them in the store. Lowes doesn't even show them on their site. I will stop by Home Depot on my way to get some lunch and see if they happen to have them there. Their is also a UHAUL store not far from my house, so I am going to check there as well.

I know Uhaul has some straps that you put your arms through and use your forearms to lift the heavy object; they might be called Forearm Lifters or something. DON'T BUY THOSE! Even if you can't find the shoulder version locally, don't buy the forearm lifters, they're more trouble than they're worth.

I saw those and I don't see how those would have been useful anyways.

No luck on finding anything local. Guess I will be lifting these the old fashion way.

A man has got to get a workout somehow.

As for the dolly - I haven't seen them stocked at any of the big box stores. Some of the smaller hardware stores may carry them, but amazon rocks like Dave said, especially with prime.
