I think JBL is more interested in selling speakers than drivers. In that case you just charge whatever you want

Well I paid like 250 Euro for a Beyma 21SW1600ND
So indeed the JBL pricing is insane. in the past lots of EV and JBL parts were used in "PA land" but things have changed quite a bit

is not the low tuning and the technical design of, for example the 215, causing the "lack" of midbass for some people in this thread ?
2x15" cabinet that needs to dig down deep and loud and the the coax compression driver needs to start low as well. Okay the BMS will do it, just like for example Community's M200 / M4 driver.....

For example Turbosound does not like to use compression drivers to start that low, they prefer cones.

Perhaps another cone driver to assist in the design to boost midbass?
Never experienced a JTR cabinet, so do not get me wrong, no bashing my friends.

Luckily, after Skyline, we will be moving a few hundred pounds of speakers around so maybe it won't affect us too much.

I'm not worried about it. I'm committed already. And I have to say that JBL support has exceeded my expectations by far and I am willing to pay for the demonstrated performance, testing, and engineering behind it all. But that's me, everyone has there own priorities.

Well they have to pay for the higher labor costs after moving from California to Mexico. I mean everyone knows CA is the home of cheap labor!

Mind blowing that during the rare-earth crunch (Thanks China) JBL basically doubled to price of raw drivers, crazy when the drivers typically used by DIYers were not Neo.

yes, I am still little pissed. I am sure they don't care, and it wont stop me from buying JBL in the future (which probably factors into their not caring).

I was casually reading in my careless nature, and my mind merged these two quotes into:

I'd just like to point out that the 215RM is one hell of a midbass/bass monster too as long as you use it with a subwoofer. The 215RM is one of my favorite speakers, with my personal caveat is that it sounds a little different on the upper end than the 212. Not better, not worse, just a little more laid back than the forward 212.

For home theater with someone that already has a strong sub system, I'd say the 215RM is the sweet spot. If you like music more or haven't been bitten by the AVS subwoofer system bug yet, the 215RT is definitely an awesome refrigerator, I mean speaker.

How high are you guys putting the horns of your 212ht's? Trying to determine how high mine need to be off the stage. Is there vertical dispersion of the horn pretty good?

The BMS 4593 is the CD being used. The XO is 400 hz

In general I do not feel like any JTR speakers lack midbass but since this is a thread of excess I understand those who feel like they want more.
Logically speaking, if the 212s ported is considered 'flat', then the LP giving up 6dB is not. And 6dB is a HUGE number, so if A is just enough mid-bass, then B is way, way down.

So, it's not excess to say 'the LP lacks midbass' in that context.

Now, on the other hand, for someone like me, until I owned the LP version, i have not even experienced speakers with the LP's (down 6dB) mid bass. Other speakers (those hi-fi type towers) I used to own have even less mid bass (at least at reference). So, for me, and for my music listening, the LP version of the 212 is perfect. Just that for movies, it's still 'lacking something'... and no issue there because like everyone said it can be fixed by DSP, Equalizer plus wall boundaries.

It has been mentioned a few times but I feel like it keeps getting lost.

The sealed version of the 212 is meant to be placed right next to the wall. When I talked to Jeff back when I was buying the 212's he said the only reason to buy the sealed is if you are short on space and they need to be placed next to the wall to get a boost in the low end.

Carp, you're right of course in that the Sealed version is meant to be placed near a boundary. Jeff have said this to me as well. I have known this because i asked Jeff before I made my purchases and I have no issue with my 212 and in fact loves it to death and you'll have to pry it off my dead hands.

However, what's lost in translation is that many here on the forum believe the 212 LP is flat and I have heard many said this many times. It is not. Saying it's flat is just inaccurate and can cause some potential buyers to make the wrong decision. That's why it's important to always allow people to speak their opinions without having to worry about being flamed.

Ideally, the horns would be at ear height. If they need to go much higher, the ideal would be to angle the speakers down.

Going a little bit off from this should be okay, but the further off you get, the more the quality will start to suffer.

+1

Seated ear height is best. I found that with the horn center @ 44" off of the floor it was a bit too high. My 212's were on top of Great Grammas on top of OS's.

It will often measure flat in-room with boundary gain. That plus the smaller cabinet size is the point of all of the LP models ...

Okay so I just got my Jtr noesis 228s. I can't believe how fast they got tomy house, literally less than 24hrs! That's amazing.

I'm a little unprepared for theese to get here so fast so I don't even have a amp for em yet. I do have my inuke 6000 but can I use that with my speakers? I've never had speakers before that needed am amp so I'm really in the dark with this. Do they make 3 Channel amps or do I need to buy an amp for each?

In the mean time what is the minimum I can run theese with ? Can I just plug em to receiver for temp. Just give em a listen. I think its about 100watts per channel..

By all means hook them up to your AVR and give them a listen. It may be all you need ...

AVR is likely all you'll need. I went from very old AVR to dedicated 2000 watts / channel amp back to new AVR and never went back to dedicated amps.

True, but at least from my experience with the regular ported T12's I had, I had them in the corner and STILL felt I needed more midbass at times. This is when you get into preference area though, not reference flat.

Unless you are seated 15 feet away or something, those speakers will easily hit reference off of AVR power, and do it with ease. You should have no issue playing movies at reference with those

Agreed. I'm about 7ft from an LCR of S8's and I watch every movie at or around reference (+2/-2 MV) powered off a Pio SC-35. Not a hint of stress! No bad sounds, no clipping that I can detect.


Btw beast.. just saw the pics you posted in the Falcon thread. I'm drooling over hear man.. I just received my RS4910 a few weeks ago and don't even have it outta the box yet! I was settled on the Falcon HD screen until I got wind of the Horizon.. so thanks for the feedback

However, what's lost in translation is that many here on the forum believe the 212 LP is flat and I have heard many said this many times. It is not. Saying it's flat is just inaccurate and can cause some potential buyers to make the wrong decision. That's why it's important to always allow people to speak their opinions without having to worry about being flamed.

Oh sure, I gotcha, understood.

I never felt like the 212 HT's lacked in midbass, but I have to admit I wanted to see those drivers move!!

For me the amount of midbass I want is 100% content dependent. For some songs (movies too, but I don't notice as much) I like the mid bass boosted more, others less. I bet you are the same way?
