CG....what surrounds do you have? I love to woodwork and it appears by looking at the picture you have it angled and I'm assuming that's where your surrounds are. Really love to woodwork.

Very nice CoolGeek. Are you using single 8's? Also did you do Atmos speakers?

I am about to setup an Elite Screens AT screen this week and have a few questions about placement of my 212HT's.

The area the screen will be in is about 112 inches wide from a wall on the right to a door on the left. I will have 2 of my 4 Power Sound Audio Triax's behind the screen also. Each Triax is about 31 inches wide. Accounting for the Triax's, I have about 50 inches for my speakers. The speakers being 16.5 inches leaves me with less than an inch left over. It seems I may have a hard time towing in my speakers. I had planned on building 21 inch stands to put the 212HT's CD at about 41 inches which is my ear height when sitting up straight on my couch. Another thought I had is to put all of the 212's above the Triax's which are 23 inches tall. This will put the CD about 2-3 inches above my ear height but I could toe in as much as I would like. Will this matter at all? I will be sitting at least 15 feet away from the front of the screen.


I had planned on having it setup as 212-Triax-212-Triax-212. I could push both Triax's together in the middle of the screen and have the center sitting on top. In this scenario the center channels CD would be around 43-44 inches high. I would then have enough room to put my 212's on 20 inch stands as planned and can toe in as much as I would like.


Thanks
Ray

Ray,

Having the CD's a couple inches above ear height will not be a problem at all. I would opt to have all three speakers at the same exact height before I would worry about anything else. Putting the 212's on top of the triaxes and gives you a little more flexibility anyways. You may find that the response is better with the combo a little ways in from the side wall, or perhaps better right up against the side wall. Doing this configuration will allow the ability to experiment a little with what sounds best to you.

I say go for a captivated 2400 instead of the additional surrounds. I have only reall noticed a difference between 5.1 and 7.1 movies on a few occasions.
Funny you mention that. I hadn't looked at the 2400, but was strongly considering starting with one S2 with the option of adding a 2nd if needed. I know my SVS sub is outmatched, but it still sounds pretty darn good

What's your opinion on the 2400 vs. S2? I thought most of the owners in this thread were running sealed subs.

Depends on if you want extension below 20hz or so. With just a single s2, you still won't get it, but if you get a pair of s2's, it will be quite visceral. For half that or so, a pair of caps will get you the same output above tune, but you sacrifice the <20hz material. Arguments are valid on both sides really on whether or not this is important or not....

If I were just starting out with getting high powered subs I would go DIY. But if you can afford 2 S2's that might be the best bet.

I'm considering the following:

Denon X5200W

Marantz SR7009

Marantz AV7702 with an Emotiva XPA-7



Usage is 60/40 movies/music. I originally was just going to get the Denon and leave it at that. Someone pointed me at Marantz so started researching, and then was intrigued with the idea of separates. Room size is roughly 30' x 14'.



Any advice is greatly appreciated. The reason I'm asking here and not in the Denon/Marantz threads is that I've already read all of those comparisons. I want to get some feedback from JTR owners. Thanks!

If you're not running Atmos, then an avr like 7009 is all you need for your 7.1 setup.
If atmos 5.1.4, then everything can just run off the avr.
If you're going to 7.1.4 atmos then just add a 2 or 3 channel amp to the 7009 to run a pair or all of the front channels and the surrounds off the avr.
Avr by itself is all you need to go louder than you can stand with the Jayterz.

From what jeff told me when I was deciding between the S2 and Cap 2400. The 2400 stays right with the s2 at or right around port tune. Anywhere else the S2 walks away. So, I grabbed the S2's. But, as you can see and jeff will tell you, you pay more per sub for that extra performance.

To each there own. You certainly can't go wrong with either. I have never once regretted my s2 purchase. I wanted to try some ULF experience and I am getting reference and then some down to 10hz, and maybe lower in my room

Nice looking, and I'm sure they would sound great...Just 3x more than I want to spend unfortunately.

Thanks Nabs17,

I have 4 Slanted 8s as surrounds. They are great sounding speakers and I wouldn't exchange them for anything. I bought them quite a while back when they are still pretty cheap.

And yes, the columns is where i have my surrounds.

The 4 surrounds are Slanted 8s. I have prepared 4 compartments at the ceiling (in the cross beams, you can see 4 areas that are covered by fabric) to place my atmos speakers in. I bought the Volt-6s and once they arrive, i'll test those out. I am not in a hurry to add the atmos speakers though as i want to wait for a 'real atmos' receiver from Onkyo... which is likely end of this year...

It will be interested to hear your impressions of how the V6s and S8s compare.

Does anyone know what material Jeff uses for the grills (plastic like material). I'd like to have a matching midbass module I'm building with 15" JBL midbass drivers. Thanks.

I think he said it was speaker cloth (Parts Express).

I mean grill frame, it's a pretty nice thin plastic-like material. And then I will put the premium speaker cloth from Parts Express over that.

I would love to say 2 or 4, but only one fits the budget/space at this time. My living room is medium sized, so should be good in there hopefully.
