The speaker was on par with all the rest. Considering we had listened to these blind, I thought for sure I could easily pick them out of the crowd, but not the case at all. I would have liked to have played around with the Line Array's a little more and have pushed them to the edge to see if they could hold up at reference levels. I do have to say from what I heard they are a very fine speaker, they were indeed one of my favorites of the day.

I echo your thoughts. Indeed a surprisingly capable speaker. They were my favorite of that day too. But they were first of the day and the JTR last and I was pretty darn tired from shenanigans with popalock, beastaudio, and carp the night before by the time the JTR played. With the trip out and goofing around with the guys I'd only had about 5 hours sleep in the previous 48 hours ago I was exhausted by the end of the day and fading into tired disinterest. Nevertheless, the speakers impressed me! I actually chuckled inwardly when I first saw them and thought what are these speakers doing at a meet like this? They really held there own!

I had a feeling that you might chime in here as I know you were one of the others that liked this speaker as much as me. I also was a little surprised to see this speaker at the meet, but I agree the speaker did hold it's own.

Thanks.

I can't tell the difference. My side surrounds are the Triple 8LP and they are the major contributor for surround sound. The sides are very noticeable (in a good way) with MC music but since the 215 arrived, most of my music listening has been 2 channel. The major impact of the change in the surround backs should be the back row and I have not sat there. Will try and check it out today.

I posted a thread about high pass filters and included a bunch of stuff about a recent demo with my 215's complete with horrible quality videos.

Anyone in the Sarasota area that is knowledgable in REW and could help me setup? Thanks

Pete, I don't know anything about REW but am strongly considering 212's in a few months and would love to here your system. If you ever have a GTG let me know I'm there. I live in Tampa so I'm close.

Had a chance to do some more listening after doing some more on the eq end of things.

Looks like the 215RM has quite a bit of potential. I am waiting to get the file, so I can post the graph but the ability might be there to run this guy down lower than what was advertised.

The speakers are really starting to open up for me, especially during movies which is what I am most interested in.

In your room too? I thought it might just be some room gain I was getting under 18 hz. I still think it is, maybe your room has the same gain going on....

I bought these, but they look like they are going to stick out to far. I cannot find anything else. RMK said he used the same ones, if they are the same?

Thanks for the suggestion. I've seen those and have considered them. Would I just drill these into the cabinet? Or is there another mounting way, like to one of the keyholes???

Mount a piece of mdf or plywood the exact size of the s8 to the mount, use use the 4 keyholes on the speaker with screws mounted on the MCF/ply. Done! No need to drill holes in speakers. Thats how I did mine to the wall.

Why didn't I think of that ...

Yes, those are the mounts I used for my Height speakers and to have the mounts more stealth, I mounted them to the top of the Slanted 8's (e.g. screws into the speaker cabinet).

I played some movie clips and sat in the back row. With the up-firing Slanted 8's the back surrounds were less position obvious than when they fired down at the head level for the front row seats (over the heads of the back row). The sound was very enveloping and I liked the sound from the back row a lot except ... for the bass. Way to hot and distractingly so. Lot's of visitors to my HT seem to like that amount of bass but it's not my taste. Moving back to the front row set things back in order.

BTW I played The Art of Flight (several chapters) and the bass was perfect. The Orbit Shifters were great subs but I don't miss em ...

Thanks RMK! Since my couch is right next to the wall and your bass comment, I'll just keep them facing down. Thanks for the feedback though.

Thank you. Seems like such an easy answer once you read it.
