1) S2
2) Orbit Shifter
3) Seaton F2/F4 or Terraform
O, that's an easy choice!

Thanks man...the gray treatments are Auralex DST-R's painted the same color as the wall. The panels are GIK 244's.

Really though.. I also have the RT and RM. Which pretty damn does well taking care 20 and up spectrum.. DO NOT for one second think these speakers are incapable. Especially when you start to talor them via EQ. So really think about the sub decision very carefully..

In any case, you are most likely right. I just wanted to hear from someone who has powered the 215s RM with a receiver coupled with subs (not the RTs which would need a lot more power to get down to 20hz) and get their review on it.
Oh yea. The 200-500 were just thrown out of the air as they are close to 8ohm 4ohm matching numbers and a ton of amps in that range that will run quiet. But yea Id imagine an amp around 750-1000 watts would be close to perfect if don't ever blast them. That way there would be ample headroom which we all like around these parts even if it turns out not to be headroom once a few beverages take control of the remote. I have all my equipment outside of my room so fan noise is irrelevant to me and would never go back to having any in the room if it raised the noise floor louder than my already quiet pj not in a hush box.

Don't believe anything this guy rhed says...he's nuts...he's used to volcanic eruptions and desensitized now...so four S2 and a couple of 215RT are the only way to help him

All kidding aside, he's right though...you likely wont need subs if you setup those 215RT properly.. @RMK! doesn't miss subs and can chime in...but it is subjective...so play them and see if it's enough for you.

Yeah, I know what rhed is running over there and I can only imagine what that feels like....I don't think I'll ever need 4 S2's but (you're both right) I plan on just playing with these and experimenting to see what sound I like and make a decision on subs somewhere down the road. What I want to do more immediately is get 4 slanted 8's....now I think that would be an incredible upgrade to my system as rhed mentioned earlier. In addition to that I want to move away from my Parasound amp to the Crowns to power the 3 215's....I also think that would give me a significant upgrade as well. That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

It received really good reviews from every one that I read...so I decided to purchase it and I just picked that up in March of this year....had I known about Atmos then I may have waited but I will say I can't believe that Atmos would sound significantly better than the 4 height channels I get with the Yamaha. Now, I've never heard Atmos but my height channels give me a good sense of overhead sound and I think I'll live with that for the foreseeable future as Atmos matures and more SW is available.


I also purchased the Yamaha because I made a decision that I was not going to buy anymore multi....multi thousand dollar processor's because they inevitably will need to be replaced and you're left with a processor that you can do nothing with and it's just money out of your pocket. My last 2 processors were Lexicon's and I have them both just sitting in my closet collecting dust.


I figure you'll upgrade your processor every few years as enhancements come along so I'd rather only spend 2.5k (what my Yamaha cost) vs the 10+k of the last 2 Lexicon's.

Ok.. So we either have him get some dual S2's to crack his foundation. Or like you, have him grab dual OS for his house to fall on him.. Pick a poison.. And don't even suggest 3 OS like Ibrown105. That's completely absurd!

^Rhed you have four S2, so you are certifiable. With only 3 OS I am still considered sane, now if I went to quad OS that would be silly


I am finding that the 212HT's with 80xo running on the LG can keep up with the 3OS no problem. The house not so much. Blew a sconce that was right in front of two of the OS's right off the wall. $100 unit Good news is the drywall is still in tact, but for a few minutes I was worried.

RMK admittedly wasn't playing his Orbit Shifters to their full potential, so I am not sure he would be considered an authority on whether a speaker supplies enough bass

Guys thanks again for all of your input on my question regarding upgrading the front three yesterday. Sounds like moving from Triple8's to 215RM's would be a very noticeable upgrade on all fronts, and I could go with the 210RM's to save some cash at the expense of some mid-bass performance. I assume the 210RM's are still a considerable upgrade over the Triple8's for midbass.

The pics of the 215RM with a football and laptop for scale... Ridiculous!! Mine would remain hidden behind the AT screen, but damn that would be a fun reveal with some backlighting when guests come over.

You really have to take any of the opinions of the bass with the 215RT's with a grain of salt. I mean everybody has different needs or wants for bass. Anybody that has 4-8 or 10 18" sub builds will not find the 215's nearly enough bass, but for average guys that have a couple a couple of subs like the SubM or S2's and find that adequate will certainly find the 215RT's to be enough bass to run with no subs. It just so happens that in my small room that the 215's really put out some major bass and it feels like I have 4 18's going. I don't think they would be nearly enough bass for me if my theater was double the size. I also find that some content needs more bass and other content that I am just fine with no subs. I will experiment as time goes on. I have been sticking with just the 215's and eventually I am going to pull them out and put the 212's in with my Triax's and go with that set up for awhile, then switch to the Ported HST's and so on and make a decision on what I am going to roll with or just rotate from time to time and mix it up.

I originally had some spade plugs (on my old speakers) but they are too small to fit the 215's....so I removed them and am running bare wire to the posts now. My wire is 12ga.


Let me know.

Same here, bare wire (12g) at the speakers, banana plugs (currently speakons) at the amp.

Well I'm happy to admit I'm no "authority" on anything audio. But not playing them to their full potential is incorrect. I let them have their way more than enough times. It's just that they could easily overload the room and other speakers in my 3600cf sealed space.

I think that is different than not playing them to their potential , and yes, the 215's are a perfect fit for my room and tastes.

I meant that with his 215rt he doesn't want subs. But true, he said he wasn't all the time and I haven't...yet...my reason is because I haven't got 20a outlets yet...only thing holding me back now . It's when pushing towards 10hz domain that breakers trip and I have to back off...it's my fault I don't feed then enough.

Hmmm...that should be a plaque in my HT: "WARNING: Do Not Feed The Orbit Shifters"

You're absolutely right. Each person will have different levels of 'bass-head-iness' and every room will play different.

One thing that does happen in my experience...curiosity. The what if thoughts. I got this when i was just going to get one but then got curious...an now extremely happy with duals...but I'll admit, I've thought about adding two more to see what happens. The more you play and tinker, the more your curiosity piques...And of course, the more you visit this thread...bad for the kid's college fund

I'll give you two sides of the slippery slope you are on.

Side 1 - The 212s are phenomenal speakers that are absolutely capable of being a cornerstone to ANY system with the right accompaniments and tweaks...so you could keep your speakers and build around them.

Side 2 - Jeff will absolutely send you new shipping boxes for a nominal fee...so you could spend a crapload more money with him. HAHAHAHA!

Playing at 40%

Of course, I also am not an authority on audio, however, the maker of these JTR speakers has given me the nickname "Enduro Bass," so I guess that implies that I like bass.


Playing a sub at 40% of their capacity is not playing a sub at their full potential, so I don't think what I said is incorrect. I have heard 2 Orbit Shifters in action on several occasions. It never occurred to me to dial them back.


There are people who will try to drill a nail into a wood beam with their hand. Many would use a hammer. I would be the one to use the sledgehammer approach.


Glad to hear that you have found an approach that works for you.

I think that is different than not playing them to their potential , and yes, the 215's are a perfect fit for my room and tastes.

If you are serious about shipping just goto a shipping store. If you cannot find one you can order boxes on line. I will add a link below of a heavy duty box company, they have everything, they even have insulated boxes which would be the ticket for speakers or just double box. I am sure you could call with specs and they will set you up. I have been saving boxes for along time but I am running out of room to store them. I actually broke down my single 8 boxes last week and tossed them, I am never selling them, so the boxes had to go. I will say one thing, it was a work out. Those single 8's boxes are heavy duty man as are all the boxes from JTR for that matter.

This is the only that scares me about shipping speakers. I am glad Jeff uses freight with the bigger stuff. The freight guys are usually cool when they show up and handle everything well. I think PSA uses freight with everything now.

You new sub is here sir, I will bring it right up!! LOL
