My father played for the Hawkeyes in the mid-50's, so I was the lone Iowa fan in a house of about 15 Vols fans this evening...

I must say, the Vols looked good and should be tough next year.

Anyone with a JTR sub tell me how long the power cord is? I assume they are all the same length regardless of model. Going to install some 20 amp outlets and want to make sure I plan correctly.


Thanks,

For all you jtr subwoofer owners/or submersive owners. Does the balanced minidsp put out enough voltage to power the speakerpower amps? Speakerpower could not tell me the voltage requirements to run the amp to its full capabilities.

I am sure alot of you have a minidsp in your chain. Just seeing how the minidsp has worked out for others with speakerpower amps. S2 owner here

I have been using a balance minidsp on my s2 for over a year now and it works perfectly. You will be fine.

Guys...thanks for the information. Was hoping it would be longer but glad I asked before I arbitrarily place the outlets.

I've got a trio of AE TD-18's which are supposed to be shipped out in the next few weeks and I've been thinking I'll use minidsp's to get them integrated. I'm just not sure at this point if I should get two 2x4's and just create a full range speaker with active crossover, or get an 8x8 so I can do the same thing but also add in the LFE to the td-18s for a few extra sources. I've got 4 sealed UXL's currently and 2 more I need to build boxes for. Any suggestions?

The OS uses a Powercon connector at the amp end. I have a new 15 footer laying around if you need it.

Rob, thanks for that offer...unfortunately the OS is too big for my room....it was my first choice. I'm now thinking of a couple of S1's up front (the 215's take up too much space to even accommodate S2's). So do all the JTR sub's use the Powercon connector?

I purchased dual S2's. They were everything people make them up to be I must say. They are just effortless compared to my previous VTF15. At reference the 15H had a tendency to distort, while these it looks like they are just gliding along. It honestly looks like I am not even pushing them.

Yes all JTR subs use the powercon connector. The powercon connector only plugs into the amp so no worries. I actually love that it has that type of connector on the amp. No kids are gonna come around and unplug it thats for sure haha. Wall plug is standard 3 prong. I just had two dedicated 20a breakers installed for each sub just the other night. Played the same material at higher volumes than when I tripped the breaker and all is well. Jeff said if you trip your breaker on two dedicated lines you are listening either louder than a house should be able to handle or lengthy sine waves.

Ask Jeff if he can offer a Master / Slave option with the S1. Single units use the SP1-2400 wpc amp while the S2 has the SP1-4000 wpc. He may be able to run 2 x S1 off one SP1-4000 wpc amp.

Interesting idea...didn't know Jeff had that option. I was considering 2 independent S1's up front...then later adding 1 or 2 more in the back of the room....or maybe 2 S1's up front and an S2 in the back.

It would seem like he could but have not read where its an available option yet. If he does it should save about 1k per pair.

I'm sure anything is possible for the right amount of money
Jeff uses SpeakerPower amps, the same brand of amps that Seaton uses in his powered Cat12 speakers. So Jeff is able to buy the same amps also.


That's actually a very interesting idea when you think about it, you could get optimal amp power to power the 215RT's to their full potential right from JTR. That would be a hell of an option when you consider how many guys have bought amps specifically to power the 215RT's that they bought to get the most out of them.

Anything is possible but as a lot of folks probably know, Mark (Seaton) and Jeff (JTR) are previous co-workers and friends. I thought I had read, or at least under the assumption, that they try not to play in each others space too much. Seaton does the powered speakers "thang" with DSP applied and Jeff plays in the standalone speaker market.

When the price will be incredible it would be a shame.

true but they are totally different animals, and it's really no different then both offering powered subs. Mark's about to release his SubM F2 XL which will be the exact same design as a Cap S2.
