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.

Yep, I had no choice really with the first two I did, the third behind his couch I did inset though

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!!

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?

12hz is the lowest, you can turn it up from there.
