Any ideas on something reasonably priced (The Klipsch's were about $280/ea shipped).

Reaction Audio has a slanted style 8" coax coming out that uses an excellent quality Radian driver. I bought two pairs if them to use with my 228's and they are half the price if the Slant 8's. I would of loved to buy two pairs of Slant 8'a but my wife would have killed me if I spent 4 grand in surrounds....lol


Scroll down to post #89 to see a 3D sketch up, the speaker will have 1/2" round over corners all round and come with a magnetic grill.
Official Reaction Audio Thread
This speaker uses a Radian driver that cost about $240 and a $100+ crossover, so when you factor in a finished cabinet in satin black it seems to be an excellent value with high quality components.

Wow...I have been considering the Volt 10's in the slanted enclosure because I could get 4 for less than 1/2 the price of 4 Slanted 8's. They sound pretty darn good.

I meant 4 Volt 10's for less than half the price of 2 slanted 8's.

Same here.
But I do want them to keep up with my Noesis', so that might cost.

Not trying to tell anybody how much to invest in Atmos speakers but if you look at the Atmos white paper, they are treated as surrounds. So whatever you invest in surrounds, the Atmos speakers should be of similar quality/capability.

I am half way there. I have 4 slanted 8's. However if I decide to go the way of Atmos, I think I will do in celling speakers/coaxials. I don't think I will want cabs on my ceiling. I will certainly wait till Atmos is in full swing and see what is available.

Haha, not all running at this point...but as soon as I posted that, I knew I would get some kickback I am still in a holding pattern for atmos, but will likely cross that bridge whenever the DTS variant decides to start being badged on new Pre/pro's. I will keep enjoying my relatively pedestrian system until that point in time

JC507jc has triple 8s. I have 212 Noesis. I'm not sure who might have the 228s. I heard Archaea's and I would have zero reservation recommending them depending on your needs and plans. I think it's something you definitely need to find a way to hear them.

Do you plan on using for music only or what combination?

I spoke with Jeff about a month ago. I'll need in-ceiling and he said he'd work with me to solve the need for Atmos. I need to crawl up in my attic to see what size of box I'll be able to fit in there. It's just too hot in Houston this time of the year to do that right now. I'm a little worried about the depth as I have one wall (left) that's an exterior wall with a sloped roof. I may have to look at something like the CDT-5800-c from Klipsche. I'm hoping I can get a S8 up there to match my surrounds.

So I placed an order from D-Sonic for their M3-4500-3


3 x 2000 Watts @ 4 Ohm


So hopefully, this will solve my power issue for my 3 JTR 215RT's


And then RMK, I will be trying them as LFE.

I have been hoping someone would try that combination with the 215RT. Looking forward to your impressions.

That D-sonic is a very nice amp.

I have a forum member (JF56) coming over for a demo this weekend. He has N-212's and an OS (he is considering another ). It will be interesting to get his take on the 215RT's bass wise and overall vs his excellent setup. I'll encourage him to post impressions here.

Congrats man, be ready to need no upgrade, for any main, for a LONG time coming. That thing should allow the 215 to just absolutely cruise, even with some LFE action mixed in

All good things, but the monoblock topography, cool running nature, and overall quality of the work is second to none IMO Best amp I have ever owned, period.

@SOWK , I asked you a couple times but you never got back? I don't think I have ever heard a review from you. How are the 215's treating you. How are the SubM's paring with the 215's? Do you think they do well with movies vs the Vandersteen's?

Reefdvr27 - I want to give them a fair trial before I go into a lot of detail.

I like them a lot, but I've been running into a lot of little issue I am trying to solve first.

The Submersives pair very well actually. Better then the Vandersteen / Submersive mix.

So far I've really only watched three movies with them and all three times I haven't really thought about the audio...

I know that sounds like I didn't care, but it's actually a good thing. I am a critic by default, and if I could just enjoy without picking out any negative issues that's a big win in my book.

With the vandersteen's at reference, they could get muddy at times, and hard to hear center channel dialog. With the JTR's, I'm not having these issues. So its exactly what I was trying to go for.

The vandersteens image better and can product a more realistic sound stage, but lack the dynamics and head room the JTR's have.

and once I find out if my tweeter crackling issue when running reference and full range with a intense scene like WOTW's is fixed with the new AMP, I will try the LFE into them as well. I don't think you can go wrong with the JTR 215RT's.
