The kc guys put the Procella p8 up against the JTR 212ht on two occasions. Once in the 2012 speaker meet in the park. Once at jedimastergrants house. On both occasions the JTR were superior by all accounts that I'm aware of, even the Procella's owner.
You may have to go to a higher end Procella to be competitive.
Carp, jedimastergrant, stitch1, and Randy Bessinger did the most recent comparison. I heard the two at the park in 2012.
Probably pm the guys for there take. Procella is a good speaker, but JTR drivers are of higher quality and have less overhead, since JTR is a one man show.
As to JTR vs JTR
For cinema use I could not tell the difference between the 212 and the 228. We've tested. For music I can. The 212ht have a larger "front wall soundstage". The 228 more focused smaller soundstage. This soundstage difference reveals itself with two channel music, not cinema use. The 212ht compression driver is the best I've ever heard and its clarity and lower crossover gives it another edge for music.
212ht to 228ht comparison:
For movie clips three people said they couldn't tell the difference and one (carp), owner of 212ht, said he could.
For music, however, three of the four blind auditiners consistently liked the 212ht better, only one liked the 228ht better (stitch1)
