jbrown15: do you have a thread or detailed instructions on how you built your Subs? Thx
Here's my build thread. LTD-M18 Sub Build

I don't know what your room is like but if you have a false wall/AT screen setup like mine to hide the subs you can get pretty crazy with with multiple subs.

Send me a pm if you have any questions.

Yes, planning for a baffle wall with a Seymour AT screen. Sony PJ. The bigger issue is wife doesn't agree with 10-12K on speakers so I need to work that out. If I can save money on subs and clear out the JTR vs Procella conundrum, that would help. I'm clear on the PJ, screen etc.

Will JTR be at cedia?

I don't think you'll find JTR speakers at cedia, where are you located? I think you're best bet to hear some JTR's is right hear, find someone close to you and see if they'll let you have a listen.

I have to say if you're mostly going to use the speakers for movies and tv the 228HT's are one of the best bang for buck speakers on the market. They can easily hang with some pretty expensive speakers.
Archaea and asoofi1 like this.

The only way to overcome these are to either move the speaker placement or modify the room. You mentioned a 100Hz hole which you couldn't EQ out which would be due to a room / speaker placement issue. http://peavey.com/support/technotes/...ncellation.cfm

I have had my T12s for a couple years now and recently EQ'd them which made the mid-bass and even bass from them really stand out. The bass was enough to where I thought the subs kicked on in addition to the L / R speakers.

Added in Edit: You mentioned that the speakers had the same FR in two rooms. If this is the case I would say possibly a faulty speaker. One sure fire way to test, but a pain, would be to test the FR out in an open field.
Can you upload your FR response? Would love to see before and after

If I am reading these charts and the room has an impact on mid bass....how can adding a MBM help?[/QUOTE]

Different driver location can not have a dip at that FR. Why most say subs usually don't measure best where main speakers are. But each room is different.

My subs are sealed with dual opposing drives so they don't vibrate at all. I just use small stick on felt pads to reduce any marking on the finish. If you have single driver subs they probably really shake at times.
I have Triple 8's LP's on top of my two submersives flanked at the LR positions. Felt pads is all and they never move an inch

That's funny bro! Btw, I'm going on a fishing trip over to south point at the Big island soon. For some ulua fishing. I figured you know where that is since you were in the Big island before. Can't hardly wait. Haven't cast my poles and conventionals for a long time..

Surrounds: JTR Slanted 8HT or Procella P5

Subs: Two (should not be more than $3500 for both), haven't decided on the brand.

Are they both good or is one clearly a winner over the other? My budget doesn't allow me to go any higher on either brand. Thoughts on who is the clear winner. Thx
Smug by,

I have heard the 212 and the P8 in my own room a few months ago. They were randy bessingers p8's. Carp was there along with stitch1 but archaea did not make it.

My room is well treated. We used my denon 4311 and left calibration off. We listened to music and movie clips. Everyone there preferred the 212 by quite a bit. We were initially going to do the test blind. It ended up that it was not necessary bc it was just that obvious. The speakers actually have some similarities in that they both sound like compression drivers. Good ones. But the biggest difference for me was the soundstage. The 212 is a bigger speaker and it gives you a bigger sound. Much much bigger. There is also greater detail and clarity at high volumes.

I should mention that one of the p8 had a problem so we only had it at reference one time and then backed off. Randy has his p8 crossed over high to his p10 subs so his system no doubt has more mid bass than what we were hearing in my room.

I have heArd the 228 and while it did not have as large of a soundstage and it it not as good for music I still feel it is a phenomenal movie speaker.

I'm about to get things going this weekend. Taking down the old speakers. And building the panel backings for the S8's. I'm still waiting on the amps and other cables and wires to arrive. Though I have very limited time right now. As I work 6 and sometimes 7 days. Trying to finish up the new condo to be turned over by November. I got the RT's for L/R and RM for center.

In short, yes your house can handle them.

But, there are always different standards in construction and things can happen. Cracks in drywall, trim work attached to walls can be loosened, but that's all cosmetic.

What amps did you decide on for the 215's?

If you are going to listen to much music, use one iNuke 6000 for the left channel and center speaker and the other iNuke 6000 for the right channel. When playing two-channel music, each amp acts as a monoblock and you don't get any crosstalk whatsoever among channels. It also means you won't forget to power the center speaker even for two-channel listening. See the following for more explanation:

All my amps/speakers powered up all the time, even when I am listening in stereo.

I think Kal is 100% correct there, but I have to say, even when I had my amp running the two jbl 2242's on, but muted, it still didn't "shunt" the drivers enough to quell them when the other 8 sealed 18's were going to town. It still almost seemed like they were actually ON! In more casual systems I would tend to agree. but not on something like rhed is embarking on.

Thanks DD.. Never thought about that. And since each amp will be on their own 20 amp cuircut it more so it makes sense. Ha, learn something everyday.

Beast.. So your saying it doesn't matter if it's done that way or not? One more thing. I'm not to familiar with the inukes yet. But as soon as I get them I'll have to play around with them first. When EQing, does the inuke EQ for both channels at the same time? Or can it be done independently? Thanks guys..

With the sheer firepower that you, I and plenty of others around here are working with, from my personal experience, is too much for the "powered" but unused channels shunt to work as Kal mentioned. I recon the concept is sound, but IME, it is too little of a shunt to work when you have uber amounts of displacement coming from all the speakers that are in fact operating. I remember and Rilla's place when we had the two catalyst 12c running with a silly full range house curve, it was even making the two S2's we had up front move pretty crazy. I SWORE that they were on and that Jeff and Mark were screwing with us. In fact, they were indeed not engaged, but looked as if they were pounding away almost as if they were hanging right there with the cats! It was crazy.

So use a real shunt. A paper clip will do.

Popalock turned me on to the subwoofer song thread...I feel like a new frontier has been discovered!!! Just revved up to reference with one song and DANG!!! Intense!!! So clean and powerful, it was a little scary to be honest. Of course my music is up like 15db on the subs, just music...

Amps

My 3 T12s should be in hand shortly. At this point I'm wavering between upgrading my receiver (a 5 year old 5.1 Denon) or springing for some amps and waiting to upgrade the receiver until this whole atmos thing shakes out. I was considering a Denon X4100 (not quite available), but now am leaning towards picking up 3 inuke 1000 DSPs to power the front stage instead.

Am I crazy?

Anyway, would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Do you have a thread dedicated to your space? I'd love to subscribe to check out your progression.

It also means you won't forget to power the center speaker even for two-channel listening. See the following for more explanation:
Wow, that's interesting stuff DD! I'm going to have to read up on this a bit more. I wonder if anyone has actually taken the time to measure a shunted vs unshunted in their space? I wonder if there would be a noticable measured difference. Very interesting indeed.

I don't know Pop, I think we could make an argument that anyone who arranges a ridiculous amount of 18" drivers to look like a skin flute could be considered crazy!...lol

IMO wait until it shakes out then get the receiver. At 101db sensitivity with the T12's you will not need (or notice) the extra power of the Inukes. Now if you are going to use the DSP for manual eq then I would have to reconsider. What is your plan for the Inukes DSP?

What he meant instead of "no one" is "not just one" ..crazy people mistype stuff all the time.....because the number is much higher on the JTR thread...probably at least 20 (myself included)
