My main concern over the 228 vs 212 is the 80-200 range and if I would lose impact with the 228's
There will be an impact difference between 2x8" woofers vs 2x12" woofers in the 80-200hz range. The 212 woofers are XO to the coaxial CD at 400hz while the 228 is XO at 1000hz.
Going from another brand to JTR can be a Night/Day difference but going from one JTR speaker to the other will not be nearly as noticeable. You can expect a performance gain with every $$$ more
spent on a different model/series of JTR speakers but will that be noticeable, needed, wanted, or even worth it?
That is decision we all have to make as there is no definitive choice when value is concerned. IMO a couple of months of waiting is not a lot to ask when speaking about lifetime or the last speaker choice.
This is a guess:
I think the couple dbs from 60-120hz would be at all volumes up to Max but it could be max output only. This can be negated with a higher XO.
