Back to JTR...My original plan was a Cap 2400 for the subwoofer and I am still thinking that is the way I will go because I like uniformity of brand. It looks like a lot of JTR speaker owners have different brands for subwoofers. Is this usually due to cost savings for similar performance? Any reason I should be looking for alternatives for equal to or less than the $2500 Cap 2400 price?
Well, I'd say most of us are in this thread for two reasons; Jeff makes some great speakers and subs with great support and secondly, there are some very knowledgeable and friendly people in this forum.
Now related to the subs, I'm not sure what speakers you have but there are very few commercial subs that can keep up with the Noesis speakers. You'd really need to look at multiple subs such as JTR S1/S2, JTR OS, Seaton Submersives, PSA, etc. etc, And those are the commercial offerings that are well considered and I probably missed a few. The other option is DIY, which is what I plan to do and many on this thread have done. As I said, you really need multiple subs if you want to go low and keep up with the Noesis and DIY is the least expensive way to do that.
Another reason many have different brands of subs is where they jumped in, some before the Noesis were released. And others were planning to buy JTR subs but went DIY or found a good deal on a pair of Seaton Submersives as someone recently did.
You can't go wrong with the JTR subs and really any of the ones I mentioned are pretty comparable. It's like asking which is better, a Corvette or Porsche 911. I'll take either thank you very much.
