At least that is the conclusion I came to after discussing it at length with JBL. Besides, those amps have some nice features built in.
Getting the sound you like in your room ... priceless!

OK got my Triple 12LF and se it up. I tried both with and without toe and eventually settled for the toe so it covers a wider area of sweet spot. I had to run audyssey multiple time with different MLP to get an optimized sound. Somehow I was able to get both the front and the second row with optimized sound. These are really good speakers and I wonder how well the new versions sound (the one I bought is a 2009 model). I am still in the process of tuning it further but so far I believe it is ready for HT (did watch some movies and testing with challenging scenes and sounded really good).

I also tested it for stereo music and I felt that they paired pretty well with the 2 PB13 ultras that I have. Which is a huge relief as I do not want t change the subs .

Anyway, here is a picture of the 3 triple 12s which are fronted with an AT screen (with a dark room it is hard to take clear pictures with a cellphone).

Glad to see you are going with the crown amps. They theoretically are designed matched for a synergistic result.

What Synergy sport tech is doing to the NBA is amazing though! Will eventually draft players based on its design and coach from the data they provide. All the data is really mind boggling as well when look deep into it.

Good weekend for college football. Unlike Dgage, I am a Georgia fan and had about 15 Vol fans over at my house last night since my wife is native. This is going to be a fun ride this season leading up to the four game playoff.

On another note, I made the roughly 12 hour round trip to drop off the 215RT/RM's do their new owner on Saturday. They were much easier to take down than they were going up the steps. I am hoping they will be well enjoyed in their new home.... as they were not the right speaker for my room/layout.

I will chime in on the 215RM. It was set to Full Range in my setup and did a wonderful job. Plus it played very nicely with my 8-SI18 subs..

IMO, 3 - 215RM's PLUS a great sub setup would make a very nice HT setup. Just make sure you have plenty of space between the front row and the speakers. 10-12 feet at the minimum.

Also, the sound differences between the 212 and 215 were noticeable to me. I don't think the gain from the 212 to 215 was significant enough, except in the mid bass.

Again, all subjective here and based on my setup...

Well, I talked to Dennis ( guy with the speakers) and he sold the Noesis 212's only because he got a deal on some other speakers and the guy had some other guy that needed the money right away etc... He's keeping the S8's for now.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

I don't think there is anything synergistic going on. It's just that the Crowns meet their specs and have the London Soundweb capability built in for the active filters. The BSS processors and a high quality amp with the proper power will work just as well. I was told my LG is fine for the task, but then I need to buy the processor and I would still need a Crown for the center channel. Might as well keep things consistent.

It's good for hobbyists to explore the outer limits of audio. It is really the only way to find out what you need.
I hope you are able to enjoy the JBL's for a good long time.

Thanks Rob.

Being a deep space audio explorer is definitely an expensive job. But someone has to do it!
