I'll have to aim for LCR Triple 12HT's then.. the difference in weight is nearly double :S
But is the difference between a Triple 8HT noticeable compared to the Triple 12HT and if so according to you by what % and in which area ?
What are the differences between the Triple 12HT vs the Triple 12HTLP or Triple 8HT vs the Triple 8HTLP?? the website says they both weigh the same except tho there are differences between the Triple 8's weight , while all the rest all seem pretty much the same ...
Which type would be a superior sounding product for an average sized room..
Also the single 8 is @ 8ohms , wont this be a problem for those planning on running different ohm rated speakers like the 4ohms larger speakers on the same rig ?
thanks in advance
In a medium (<3000cf)) sized room the differences between the T12 and T8's would be less noticeable. The 12's have a more LF extension and more midbass so they have more punch in those all important frequencies when played very loud. As you noted, they are also a lot heavier so if you plan on moving them around you may need help
I haven't heard the T12LP's but being they are probably a little more position flexible i.e. better for baffle wall mounting. Also, their smaller size makes them less obtrusive for in room use. My guess is that the overall performance is very close to the vented T12HT's.
Regarding the S8's , they use the same compression driver as the other JTR's and so have similar sound and being 8ohm simply means they are easier to drive. That is a good characteristic for a surround speaker as they do much less work than the mains.
