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.

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.

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.

I watched the Book of Eli gatling gun scene at -5 and it was awesome. You're right about the very active surrounds on that one.

I bumped the sub levels a couple of db's and did several Scuba Steve Bluray demos. The THX demo (mushroom bass) had the hair on my the back of my neck standing up. Frigging awesome ...

Love these 215's

Yes I just love that scene! I wish those sound engineers on films would do more stuff like that! I am sure things will get better as I upgrade surrounds over the years. But that one is just fun One of my demo discs I got from Buzz (he just got his dream 212,S8 system) has the mushroom THX scene you describe on the bass menu before you go into any scenes and plays automatically. It has the little robot and cows mooing on another. And fish and whales on the music section. They are all either THX or DTS little sound demos. I do remember Buzz saying it was a new one someone put out. Got it from him like 6 moths ago. I am sure he can chime in if he visits today But those menu demos I think are my fav after that BOE gatling gun scene. Although tops is the Atmos theater demo I watched in a real atmos theater. So many leaves flying around and 60+ speakers! Fun stuff

Oh yea, that THX mushroom demo at my normal movie volumes is ridiculous! I bet it is a life changing experience on 215's

I'm going to have to get one. 20hz is as low as you can set a HP on the inuke, way too high because it cuts off way too much at 20 and below. Also I have a feeling we were on to something with an analog HP not screwing up the response like a digital HP does.

I know how I am whenever somebody gets new speakers....all I want to see is pictures of them out of the box, so here you go!

First of all, these were packed perfectly and I like how Jeff packs them with no boxes....smart move. Makes it harder to sell them used.

My brother-in-law, buddy and myself just finished getting these into my room. It brought to light how out of shape I am because if it weren't for the the third person, I don't think I would had gotten all three in the room. The RT's went first and the RM was like a "feather"....

These pictures are with my wife's camera off her phone and my lighting is horrible in that room. Also, the left and right speakers aren't in the correct spots yet. I need to adjust a few things before I slide them into place. We are having some really nasty storms right now, so I am holding off turning everything on due to the lightning. Listening might have to wait until tomorrow morning or later tonight.

The center sitting the stand designed and built by David is my favorite. Both my buddy and BIL thought it looked amazing...

The only pictures I can see are the center channels. The other two are washed out and dark. Lets go, break out Cannon EOS.
