This sounds amazing. I remember you guys talking about these quite a while ago (maybe it was Tim). I would think that if you had the headphones in and combined it with Crowsons and a nearfield sub...

This is true. A friend has some Klipsch pro style LRC speakers behind an AT screen and they sound great!

On song 5 now. This is amazing. It's like they wrote it specifically for my taste.

Playing the whole album now. Oh hell yes.

First song is so good too. From 3:20 on track one to the end the volume got a little crazy. It's been a long time since I've liked something this...

This one ^ caused the involuntary lip curl thing. One great riff after another after another. Maybe death/groove is my thing.

Ohhh I could even play it in PE class. No death vocals.

For low bass below 35 hz or so they don't compare, but above 40 hz they are basically the same speaker. What I love about the 210's is that they can be run full range for music with no subs needed...

Those are very narrow. 21" wide compared to 25" for the other Costco chairs. That could be a good thing though if you are looking to fit more chairs in a row.

Did they sound like the Selah's from Andrew's GTG? I know you really liked those. What a great idea for a pair of 2 channel speakers.

A single 215 RT is VERY similar in output to a JTR Captivator 1400 - actually a bit more. I've owned dual Cap subs and also a pair of 215 RT's.

Hmm... unless you will make money out of it I would stick with the S2's - as Jeff says you can always turn them down! :D Is it also a space issue?

Oops, check that. The next couple weeks after the crawl I was comparing the 8 sealed 18"s to the 4000, and also 8 sealed + nearfield 18" to the 4000 + nearfield. That was a lot of fun. :)

Why the change? You have 215's right? Is it so you can go all ported and run the 215's large + subs without having to worry about blending ported and sealed?

Thanks Luke! Ah, so it would be a smart bet to take the under on 135 in my room. Maybe the nearfield would get me there but I doubt it. I probably haven't been above 125 since the KC crawl.

I have a little more output than a single 4000 and I don't think I could get close to 140 db's, let alone 150. If I had to take the over/under in my room (at the listening position) on 135 db's I'd...
