Dang guys, making me feel terrible about buying the 3 disc set! I got Godzilla at the same time though so perhaps it was not a wasted trip...

I couldn't stand Godzilla and not looking forward to T4 after past few pages. I was looking forward to the audio for sure.

Great effects, great sound for sure. But holy crap the plot line and acting is insane.

- "You're telling me we only have TWO MINUTES!!! TWO MINUTES!!!!" jeesh
- Chinese soldiers, speaking chinese. Commander comes over, gives orders to them in english. Really???
- Robot dinosaurs. Because of course.

Just a few of my many many observations of why I vowed to never spend money at a commercial theater again. This shoulda been a netflix view.
Giant robots killing and destroying stuff. What's not to like . I was high-fiving my son when we walked out of there. I guess you just have to get in a 7yo mindset before you walk in, and having one with you helps.

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.

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.

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?
