Yeah, I know these speakers play much cleaner than there specs suggest, and they do have a "greater than" sign in their specs, so they gave themselves wiggle room, lol.

You can't passive bi-amp these speakers. It's either active bi-amp or passive with one amp channel.

I've got my duel JTR S2's too, and just not sure it's worth doing anything else. I've thought about selling the S2's and getting four single subs and plopping them in the corners or wherever, but I...

Just to be clear, when I'm talking about edginess or harshness it is in trying to clarify what is different about the 7 series vs. the M2. The 7 series are not harsh sounding speakers. It's kinda...

None of that surprises me, and "they just sound different" is the best way to describe it, and in a subtle way if you didn't know the speakers intimately. At the same time very close in timbre and...

Many with matching surrounds will tell you it matters, many without will tell you it doesn't. :) Who to believe? :D

I have my 708 on an entertainment cabinet below my plasma. I agree that a vertical M2 would put the plasma at the ceiling, which is why I haven't done it.

Phantom not bad really. But I think the...

Are you sure all your drivers are ok? Your room above Schroeder does not look like it should be the cause of the severity of issues you're describing.

Horizontal, no problem. They can even supply you with a preset specifically for horizontal placement.

Lol. I hear ya.

It's noticeable, or I wouldn't have said anything. :) As with many things in audio, it can be ignored. But if you focus on it, it's there. Most times it's really not noticeable,...

No, haven't heard them in a large room. Mines medium 13' x 28'.

If output is a concern then the M2's or 4367's would be a better choice.

try correcting just to the Schroeder frequency. Say 300 Hz. See how it sounds. Measurements at the LP do not accurately reflect SQ, and can be deceiving

IMO, room correction is most helpful in your situation. Dont despair, you might be amazed at the transformation of sound.

Great speaker, good room = far less chance room correction is a smart move

Reading descriptions of the 4429 it seems they are very different speakers. "imaging best at a narrow "sweet spot"." is very unlikely to be words you'll read in a 708 review.
