The new toy anticipation is probably one of the things that keeps us upgrading, lol.
Thank you....it was just about 7 hours ago I talked with Jeff and it feels like it was forever ago. Man I can't wait.

I think it is because the center of the speaker is equidistant from the floor and both corner walls. REW's room sim is showing the same dip. It might be the sympathetic vibrations, though. I hadn't thought of that. I wonder if my wife will be sympathetic when I tell her she has to help me get them off the stands.

I'll work with what I have to get the best sound from them. My current LCR speakers are McIntosh, 2 SL-6 and HT-1 for center. They served me well but it's time to move on. My plan for the 215RT's is to run them full range (for now) and see what that sounds like. With my processor (Yamaha CX-A5000) if you say no subs it will route LFE and everything below the x-over to the L/R speakers...so I'll play around with that for now.


Yeah that is pretty narrow but I bet you can make it work. Make sure you have a way to eq the bass on the 215's to your liking when running them full range.

Hmmm never heard McIntosh speakers.

Are you setting them up in another room?

Nah...going to sell them cheap to a friend. I've had them for years.

What kind of eq would you suggest?

A minidsp or an inuke with dsp would be great. The inuke 6000 dsp will give significantly more headroom than the 3000 dsp, I'm using the 3000 dsp though since 99 percent of the time the output is more than enough and I don't want to spend any money right now.

The inuke dynamic eq function is so great at setting up a house curve to your liking. Here is an example:



It's endlessly tweakable. You can select how steep you want the house curve, where it starts, how much boost, etc. and just keep experimenting on the fly until you settle on what you like.

Yeah, I know lots of guys like the inukes. My only issue is my equipment is in another room and the inuke doesn't have a trigger input and it would be a pain to manually power it on/off. Do you have a way to remote turn on?
