I don't know what it is, but I still enjoy going every Tuesday to the store and picking movies out myself. I usually get 2 movies a week, I get the pick of the week and look for something older that I like. I actually love going to Best Buy because they have everything and allot of time really good sales like $7 BluRays. The last few weeks I have been getting one movie and a CD, I am really enjoying music again. I guess it comes from being a kid, I loved going to the record store and picking out music for hours. Man I wish music stores would make a comeback. Everybody keeps trying to event a new music player when we already have it with compact disc's and Vinyl. Luckily Best Buy still carries a good amount of music, hope they stay in business.

There is something I still just like about running down the road to BB on Tuesday release day and scooping up the movie It's only a 5 minute drive (just like everything else in Asheville) so it is easy peasy. Plus, I get to peruse around and usually find other fun things to play with...

Unfortunately BB is about 40 minutes from me, so I usually goto Walmart, which is 5 minutes from me. They actually have a great selection of movies, but BB is way better. I read they were building a BB down my way, I am hoping that happens.

They measure OK I suppose. So long as you can ignore the imperfections, such as the horror of painfully deep 0.25 dB nulls at 856.2 Hz and at 38.4 kHz.

J/k

OK, so I think I was maxing out the JTR 215RT's in my size room.

I have decided to return and get three 212HT's with Stands, and four Cap S2 subs.

At the moment I can only afford two S2 Subs, and I need to sell my Submersives and New D-Sonic Amp to afford the final 3rd and 4th S2.

Wow, i never would have guessed that. I honestly was guessing one of your compression drivers might have been damaged. Wouldn't all three speakers have the issue if this was the case (I thought only one of the three was doing it). Anyways, Jeff knows 1000% more than I do so I am sure he has you going down the right path.

There's an S2 still shrink wrapped in the classifieds. Guy selling it is north of Philly.

Are you saying your room is too small for the 215's? Trying to understand what you mean by maxing out the 215's in your size room. My room is only 12' wide x 23.6' long x 10' high......what are the dimensions of your room? I'm wondering if I'll experience the same issues....I guess time will tell.

No, I have a large room of 33 feet long / 17 feet wide / 8 feet tall

And I sit far enough away we need the speakers to be at max output to hit the needed 115dB with LFE routed into them and that's without any bass boost.

The 215RT's will work for 99.9% of everyone out there, so no need to worry!

I have a buddy who might be looking to add a 2nd Submersive. If you can ship let me know and I'll pass along the info to him.

SOWK, what was making the bad sound, the CD or the drivers or both? Was that with a HPF on?

What speakers are you thinking of getting now?

The 215RT's are still the better speakers. But I only need for theater and I don't listen to 2 channel music in my theater.

High pass filter on?

Ooohhhh nice choice. I still have one as my center and I loved the 212 front stage. A friend was over last night and asked if the 215's had made me open up to other types of music and I said no, it was the 212's that did that (and now just continuing with the 215's).

The 212's have such an advantage with sensitivity it's not even close, I guarantee you will be hitting the levels you want and the 212's will just be coasting along even in your huge room!

Any thoughts about going with Danley or Seaton?
