As promised, here is a better picture (sorry for the spots, need to clean the lens on my digital camera that I rarely use) of Coach's 215 array. We'll finish the treatments and DSPing on Sunday.

Oh yeah, I forgot to put my initial thoughts on the 215s. Upon entering the room, my first thought was what's up with the huge black refrigerator in the home theater room. Damn those 215RTs are huge. Sound is huge too and I can't wait to hear them dialed in better and with treatments installed on the front wall and on ceiling. So far the sonic impressions are that they are a little more laid back than the 212s but without any loss in detail. Haven't noticed much more on the midbass but we were doing vanilla listening without anything more than settings levels. We'll definitely be dialing up the midbass and watching the Book of Eli Gatling gun scene.

Thank you posting a better picture.

It was nice to hear these with the settings correct. Gets me excited about the potential of what these can do once everything is in place.

Looking good! How about a close up of the center channel 215.

Cool. Thank you for the invitation. I rarely have an opportunity to travel more than a few hours away, but if I'm ever in your neck of the woods I'll be sure to call.

A little bit of this yesterday. Very nice day with a group of good guys.


This time I really liked the SH50's. I am really looking forward to a 215 vs SH50. The Yorkvilles even impressed me as they were pretty much on par with the SH50 especially at higher volumes.

The book of Eli scene was sick. I think somebody just got hooked on pro audio speakers

Gorilla has an awesome theater that can put out some serious SPL. The Danleys and Yorkvilles were amazing but not planning to sell the 212's anytime soon. Great meeting all you guys. Thanks for coordinating this mini GTG.
