Actually we have never really listed to metal at any of the GTG's. There may be a few more tracks this time as some have requested a little more, but Ben put up the set list of what was heard at the last few. I imagine the list will be similar to one of these.

So I really don't know what to do. So my options come down to move or redo the theater. The easiest option at this time would be to rip down the theater and start over. I can do that, but it just sucks. The only thing I am worried about is if I do that and it does not work. Then there is just sell everything get some headphone amps and just wait till I can get out of here. Like I said this just totally sucks and I never expected it.
Awww man.. that really sucks big time.. I feel for you man..

In fact, this puts a damper on me as well because soon i'll be moving to my new house/new home theater... although i have it in a basement, i am not sure that'll keep the bass contained... in the new house, i have a neighbor who is not tolerant at all with loud noises.. he's already complained a few times about my 'construction'... and both my neighbors have complained...

it would really suck if i can't play at reference at all after spending so much time and money on my HT...

Anyways, I hope you find a new place that you could play as loud as you like.

Or, find a way to sound proof your room to an extent that works for your neighbors.

The discussion about having the cops called reminds me of when I rented a condo whose walls were constructed with very good sound proofing, as I was told by the landlord before moving in. I didn't even run any subs, just my Legacy Focus SE's. The neighbors below me were 80+ and had trouble sleeping through the night anyway, and the lady neighbor to the side had PTSD I later found out. Anything above around -20dB (relative to ref) or after 8 pm, I either got knocking on my door, reported to the HOA, and once had the cops called. Before it got nasty, the husband of the PTSD lady asked me to play the music at my normal level and come over to his living room to experience how bad it was. I was shocked when I walked in and could barely hear anything. I nodded my head, went back to my living room, and kept the music playing at the same level. A half hour later, the cops showed up. These same people threatened to sue. I moved out of the place a few months later, and now rent a house on an avocado ranch. Closest neighbors are 100+ feet away and have never complained about the noise, even with lots of windows open in the theater room.

He has a horrible reputation, I mean I have never heard a good thing about this guy. I get along great with his wife, but he is just an ahole. The guy has a ton of money and I would not put it past him to sue me or file a complaint. It is ashame because I have never been anything but nice to him as my wife.

I have been reading about soundproofing my room and I could rip it out and re rock it, could probably get it done in two weeks. I just don't know if it will hold or not. I mean I have not even had subwoofers on yet, just the 215's. If I tear this room out, I want to be sure that I can get it sound proofed right and that it can hold back major bass. If not, there is no sense in doing it. I mean I guess this certainly says how much bass the 215's have if the guy next door can hear it in a somewhat pretty contained room.
Dude, anything short of throwing cinderblock all the way around that space, you will likely have some problems. How close IS this guy? Need me to come up there dance some knuckles across home-boy's forehead?

Yeah well I was (partially ) just trying to make myself feel better about not being able to join in the fun of these far away GTG's . A blind test of the 215RT's and M2's is very cool and I am interested in the results.

I really appreciate you guys doing this and posting your comments. I find these types of get togethers much more interesting than pro magazine reviews or posted FR graphs.

Haha, thanks for the back up. I will get it fixed. I don't want any soured up people around me, that is for sure. Like I said I am more pissed that the guy just could not come and talk like a man and I even gave him the option to do so and still called the cops on me. I just cannot get over that. They even have my number, they could have called. If you go on my Facebook page in the timeline photos, I have some pics I took of the snow a few years ago. You can see how close the two house are in those shots.

OK, update for everyone.

Keeping the JTR 215's and Seatons and bought a Level 3 Crowson Transducer System.

Going to run the JTR's full range and the Seatons with LFE, and Route LFE from my OPPO to the Crowsons Transducers.

Am I crazy that I watch all movies at reference?

When I came to the thread I thought most of you listened to above reference...

Then I start reading that a lot of you using -10 or -6...

I guess I am the crazy one...


Question:
If I would watch EOT at reference with my Seatons, do I have to worry about damaging them? I also usually run the Seatons hot about 4-5db.

Nice, glad you got it worked out.

Speaking of Seaton's, did anyone see that the Cat 12's got the most dynamic award at RMAF by a poster at Home theater shack? I will tell you I am pretty interested in the mini dsp with Dirac. Sounds like it did a nice job on the Cat 12's

Are you crazy..maybe...probably just as crazy as the rest of us on this thread. I do prefer to watch movies around -10. For me, in my room, reference is too loud. The speakers can do it no problem...it just isn't comfortable for me sound wise. I do have sound treatments but maybe I need more???

I would think the Seatons could hang at reference without being damaged. I think there is more chance other things would get damaged....see beastaudios's picture of stuff spilling everywhere upstairs from the bass in that movie

Glad it worked out for you and the 215's...I was just wondering what your status was and saw this.


I got an e-mail from Jeff today saying he is running behind by about a week...so I'll be waiting a little longer to officially join the JTR club.

Gonna play the devil's advocate here, but what technically does adding crowsons accomplish? You were finding the limits of the 215's regardless, so I feel like you still would...I don't see how this solves anything...

1. Yes you are crazy...which is why you fit in so well on this thread.

2. I haven't read any reports of Seaton Submersives being damaged and I've read Mark hits his equipment pretty hard at the GTGs sometimes. So I'd be surprised if you were able to hurt your Seaton Submersives unless you were trying to break them.

Beast, I will only run the 215RT's full range now vs Full Range and LFE. That alone will fix my issues I have been having.

And I am getting the crowsons as an exstention to the LFE to feel down to 5htz as I am being told its near impossible to get anything of great usefulness on my concrete slab that low.

Anyway I have never used head phones for home theater, but I was thinking about using headphones in my theater at night for the time being till I figure out what I am doing. What would be a good set of head phones for say that 7.1 sound? Do they connect right in your system or do you need an external processor? My son was a big gammer till he got a car, but I think he used Astros? I know I paid a fortune for them, he said they made it sound like home theater. Could be a temporary solution till I get my problems worked out.
The only way to get surround is if the processor has it built in.... or a external soundcard. It's not worth the bother. Astros would have had the mixamp with them, which is a small soundcard pretty much. You'd be amazed what a good set of phones can sound like! I tend to like open phones but when I want some serious bass, I throw on my closed Fostex TH900's! They outbass any other phone I've ever tired, just amazing! and they will work with ipods or any handheld unit since they are really sensitive..... You just have to stomach the $1500 price tag lol.

It's tough to recommend phones. My go to phone is the senn 650. Great phones that are under $400.

How do you run full range with no LFE? IS something that the mini dsp does. I have never used a mini dsp so you have to excuse me for asking.

I read it to mean he was routing the LFE channel to the mains and to the subs. Now he will just route the LFE to the subs and the let the 215s run full range on the L/R channel signal only.

Catching up here (after watching the Royals clinch a trip to the World Fing Series!!!! 8-0 in the playoffs - no way this is actually happening!!!!)

Dave, that sucks man. I wouldn't mess with trying to soundproof the new theater room. No matter what you do you won't be able to keep the bass from escaping and that's what your neighbors are hearing anyway. So.... I guess the only option is to move. That really sucks but if I had neighbors calling the cops I would move too.

Depressing stuff.....

I would figure out exactly what level you can play your system and still be within the noise ordinance levels. It's your house, you pay taxes like everyone else. I haven't seen you state what the actual noise levels are outside your home?

Maybe it's your neighbors that have to move! Have you considered that?? Sorry man, I just wouldn't give up because some wanker wants to live in a graveyard. If I was within ordinance I would stand my ground and let them move. Sorry, I know this is against the general advice here, but I would have data on what's going on here. Come on Dave, your an audio guy, take measurements man. Your neighbors don't even know what an SPL meter is!!

What a great story so far!

They are my adopted team right now since the Pirates stunk it up in the wild card game.

I downloaded the free 30 day trial of the two channel Dirac Live the other day. Haven't had a lot of time with it but I have confirmed with REW before and after Dirac filter is in place that there is nice improvement in impulse response. Need more listening time for subjective opinion, but the objective tests are much improved. Now I am looking forward to XMC-1 Dirac implementation more than ever.


Without Dirac I have no less than 9 peaks above -15dB in the first 10ms. With Dirac filter running I have 2, maybe 3 in that same range.

2. I haven't read any reports of Seaton Submersives being damaged and I've read Mark hits his equipment pretty hard at the GTGs sometimes. So I'd be surprised if you were able to hurt your Seaton Submersives unless you were trying to break them.
Correct. I expect my customers to eventually explore the limits of their system. It takes some 3 years to get there, and others 30 seconds.

He has those limiters built in for a reason...keep people from abusing his shtuff.
I think of it more as protecting them from unknowingly abusing their *own* shtuff.

Mark, are you typically more concerned with thermal or mechanical protection in the Submersive/Cats?
