ChldsPlay, purchased my JTR gear + Crown XLS-5000 amp + Mic2200 + all the signal cables and speakon cables he needs for his upcoming home theater build. It's a fantastic start for a home theater system, and I've offered to help him set it all up when he gets his room finished. I've mixed emotions about the whole deal - I think this is my biggest monetary sale ever, but I'm going to keep trying some new stuff in this hobby.
Kevin, those caps you bought aren't JTR Captivator 2400s, they are passive JTR Captivator Pros. They have the orbit shifter driver in them since they are the 2011 models - to my understanding they are a little bit beefier setup than the current 2400 Captivator. Jeff used to pair the older captivators with 4,000 watt amps when you bought the active version - the same 4,000 watt speakerpower amp the orbit shifter uses. Jeff uses a bit different driver these days and pairs them with a 2400 watt speakerpower amp if you buy the active.
Next course? JTR 210RT perhaps? I'm still thinking through next course. I'll play with the eight sealed subs for a while, maybe keep them, maybe sell them, maybe build or buy some horn subwoofers to replace them. I've got the nine Mackie C200 to tide me over with the eight sealed Ultimax until the decision is made. Feels odd to be without JTR gear already.
