The fanboy deep inside me hopes the 215 ends up on a t-amp for the day .

But of course I could bring it. Although I think there will likely be plenty of amplification for it there already.

Doc, how are the drivers wired to the ITs? Like does the 15 get one ch and the horn get the other, etc..? I see a spec of 8ohms but that's it from couple pages back.

Yeah, just thought folks might like to hear them with a good clean 2000wpc and find the true limits (with a HP filter in place ) of each speaker. But you're right, this shouldn't be an SPL drag race.

Honestly, I will be shocked if the M2 isn't an outright winner in terms of SQ and if it can hang with the 215 bass wise ... .

Luckily, I will be able to form my own opinion.

The top end maybe, but I don't see it hanging bass wise.

I look at this from a simplistic standpoint. The 215RT is +3dB more sensitive with (almost) double the recommended power handling.

Meaning, the 215RT should theoretically have a +6dB advantage accross the board.

As far as your comment about "the rubber meeting the road." I think expectations need to be kept in check. If the rubber meets the road within the SPL limits of the M2, then it's going to be a good showing. Otherwise, this will be the first GTG group in history that will get to hear a $10K speaker distress fart... Also, turning this into an all out SPLfest would kinda detract from what makes the M2 special. I can't recall the last time I did some critical listening at 120dB+...lol

Both speakers are going to be powered by an IPR7500, correct? Or is "cleaner" powered required for these puppies to shine?
I'll be real interested in how much Andrew has to change the speaker trims between the M2's and 215's. Gooddoc do you still have your 212's? If so how much more sensitive are they than the M2's? In my room it is an 11 db difference between the 212's and 215's.

It will be different amps with different gains, so will be impossible to make direct comparisons. 212's are gone, but for same reason having them wouldn't help.

Some here got a demo of he's room. Maybe they can chime on here and tell us what they think of the single digits on concrete slab. Archaea? Carp?
I have listened now to multiple big driver sealed setups, and including my own, that are some of the most potent down to the very lowest of the lows. Number one, I am not sure if you have ever experienced single digits, but attempting to get it, in a room your size, on a concrete slab, is a tall order...One I don;t think you should consider. You modify that low end requirement to something like 12hz? Then we are talking feasible, but it will still take a good amount of kit to get you even there, and all for what? A few effects in a few movies. Now let's consider what you would need from an S2 standpoint, bottom line, you would need TOO much, from a sanity standpoint, and from a monetary. You need the most output you can get from your subs to say, down to 18-20hz. This is why the OS or a pair even, will be perfect for you. IF you are still concerned with the material from their tuning down to the single digits, then get the crowsons. All too often people think they are really enjoying the single digits, when in fact what they are listening to (or actually hearing), is nowhere close to single digits, more likely 17hz and up, and harmonics of the fundamental. This doesn't count for people on suspended floors that have resonant freqs in the single digits but that is still "Feeling" more than "Hearing." The crowsons excel in this regard.

Having already been the first to max out the 215's, I don't feel like there is even another option for you than a couple OS. FWIW and IMHO.

Larger boxes are needed for lower port tunes without running into chuffing and too high port velocity.

JTR's is for sure a custom lab 15. Gooddoc, don't get too caught up in JBL's marketing, I've read you say the driver has multiple patents a few times, that honestly means nothing, it's no different than XBL2 tech of anything similar to that. They all have multiple patents as well, there really is nothing that special about that driver, it's not some new design that will take the world by storm. There are lots of super high end speakers that use off the shelf drivers, tweaked for their own needs.
One thing you'll notice about JBL is they charge a lot for drivers. You could take a 2242H, that sells new for 1000$ but has 200$ worth of parts. Thats not to say its not a great driver, it is I have 12 of them but I only paid 300$ a piece.

Yea, roger that. I don't disagree. But I posted the actual specs, not the marketing drivel for someone who knows what they mean to compare them to the 215 driver, or at least a similar driver to the 215. But I also don't buy that there is any serious customization for the driver used in the 215. My point was that I would put my money on the JBL driver being more "custom" than the driver in the 215, only for the fact that JBL actually manufactures the driver and true customization is far more likely. Not that it has ANY bearing on actual performance differences, since "custom" has nothing to do with "better"

Someone should be able to look at those specs http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...p?33565-2216Nd and say whether the driver is poor, average, or great in comparison to other 15" drivers. There seems to be a lot a data there.

I love these speakers, but I'm far more into objective stuff than fanboyism

It's FR range is excellent for sure but I have to see graphs to understand most of the specs/data.

Yea, one channel for the CD and one channel for the woofer. How that translates to 8 ohms, I don't know .

Mjbuoni posted some really nice looking 212HT 1m measurements that also include a distortion graph. He said that these don't include EQ, although he said that he did boost the bass by 3db.

Anyway, those JBL 2216Nd THD graphs made me think of this. From a THD perspective, it looks like the JBL 2216Nd would benefit from a subwoofer below 80hz. It gets into 100% THD territory, while good subwoofers can go below 1% THD. - Correction! I was reading the wrong graph. The JBL's THD looks fine.

On the other hand, for the power drag race, keep in mind that the M2s use an active crossover, which is roughly equivalent to about 30% more power than a passive crossover. So, (1,200 + 1,200)x1.3 = equivalent to 3,120 watts/channel. That should get the job done!

Mjbuoni's 212HT @ 1m:


Edit:
I just realized I was reading the JBL graphs wrong.
See page 10 and 11:
http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...p?33565-2216Nd

The THD is MUCH more reasonable than I said until you get to extreme power levels. Oops.

Just to clarify, these measurements were at around 95 dB (even though the graph says 70 dB) at 1-1.5 m from the center of the horn and with the speaker ~4 feet away from the back wall in my acoustically treated room. There was no EQ or high-pass filter, but I did boost the bass by +3 dB on the tone control. I found it interesting that you can clearly see the crossover at 350-400 Hz as a rise in 2nd harmonic distortion due to larger displacement required by the compression driver, although still very low with THD < 0.5% over 80-20kHz. Clearly a well-designed speaker with smooth FR, even though I do prefer to boost the bass 2-3 dB for a "warmer" presentation.

Lol yea I was wondering what everyone was missing. I triple checked every graph I had pulled up and was starting to question myself.

I tripped two OS's at my last GTG playing the Book of Eli gunshot out, but we were at much higher levels (probably +5 or something). At the time I was using 20a lines but with a powerstrip that was only 15a. Since then I removed the power strip and they do not trip anymore.

Yea.. It gets costly.. Just let your electrician know you wanna run 12 awg also to each. While changing out the outlets and breakers. What you have? 2 OS? Nice.. But after that they'll run much more effeciant.

You mean the percentage?

It's actually not a single, consistent figure. Every source that quotes a number says a different one.

It depends on the details of the passive crossover and what's being played. Active crossovers don't consume any amplifier power.

If you'd consider this a valid source, Wikipedia says active crossovers are up to 2x more efficient than passive:

Might finally need to upgrade outlets to 20a.
Are your Orbit Shifters each on their own 15a circuit? And one of them tripped?

When it's a one or the other choice, then you do the right thing. It's what separates the men from the boys.

The JBL M2 was at RMAF last year. Maybe they will be there again this year. It would be cool to take some measurements. Maybe hand them an Omnimic CD and say, "I'd really like to hear track 6."

Besides the 215RT with its automotive finish ($8998), I hope to hear at least the Vapor Audio Joule Black ($12,495), Seaton Catalyst 12C ($8,190), the Salk Exotic 3's ($11,995), and the JBL M2's.

I don't know what it is about the Catalyst 12c..always have intruiged me. I have never heard them, I have no reason to believe they are better/worse than my 212s but something about them interests me. Might be an itch I have to scratch some day.
