I auditioned some Legacy setups this week, but curious if something like the JTR can match the quality, finese and detail and add even more dynamics. Much appreciated.

That stinks, man. I actually followed your other thread and I was considering eD. Not anymore. I hope you have a chance to audition the triple 8's, they are fantastic speakers.

Me too. I have so much trouble finding something that really excites me as far as speakers. I would love to hear the JTR and Seaton rigs. Q8s across the front would look menacing

     Talk about finding something that excites, i'm mulling over getting 4 more t12's sealed like my fronts to use as side and rears. The thought entered my mind a few days ago and the thought of seeing and hearing all those t12's in my room is really appealing. Rmk! what do you and others think of that idea. Chime in please and  give your two cents!

I'm sure it would sound amazing, but it seems like gross overkill. I see
no real advantage over using T8s for the surrounds.
post #4536 of 18373
or single eights for that matter (as surrounds)
post #4537 of 18373
After a year or so of pining and planning I pulled the trigger on a full JTR setup, should be here sometime next month!

3X Triple 12HT's for LCR
6X Slant 8's for two rows of side surrounds and surround backs

The next item up for debate is the subwoofer, no way my already struggling DD-15 will keep up with the JTR rig in my 3800 cubic foot room. The Orbit Shifter is catching my eye and since I've earned 10% off status the price is closer to a submersive than ever.

Opinions from those who frequent this thread? 95+% Movie use trying to keep a 3k budget.

1 X Orbit Shifter (after reading the official thread you can't help but laugh/smile at some of those stories over there!)
1 X Capitvator
1 X Submersive

Which one would you/have you chosen? I'm looking for that plenty of headroom feeling that I'm sure the triple 12's will provide for the base register. I'll be able to fit any of them behind my false wall so the size of the OS isn't an issue.
post #4538 of 18373
two passive 17.5hz tuned ported captivators for $3k wired to 2ohms
one Peavy IPR 7500 DSP for $800 if it'll every come out.

That's my vote for sub duty. I love my set. The Peavy amp is supposed to be out this month. It produces 3750 watts x 2 peak supposedly.


Alternatively you can buy a massive 83lb CerwinVega CV-5000 which has pretty identical wattage specs to the Crown XLS-5000 amp which I own (rebadge?).
The CV-5000 costs $800, but has a 15% off coupon currently at musicians friend. It puts out 2500 watts x 2 at 2ohms which is plenty for the passive caps.
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/cerwin-vega-cv-5000-high-performance-professional-power-amplifier

With the Cerwin Vega amp you could buy a Mic2200, like I have for $100 and it'll do HPF duty and give you 2 parametric EQ bands to tailor the sound to your room.

If the DD15 is used near field it might be okay to smooth frequency response.

A single orbit shifter is insanity, two is silly. We listened to a single orbit shifter at carp's house a couple weeks back on terminator salvation, at pretty much max kilt. I had ear plugs in and it was still absolutely absurd. I told carp and jedimastergrant that I was fairly confident there was more noise coming out of that sub and his ED cinema 12 theater system than if there was a 50 foot robot outside blowing up cars.

absurd.

I say HELL YES!
Matching T12's all around would be perfect.
The real question is Why Not?

Thats what i'm talking about! Why not have the same size speakers for the entire setup. The dynamics would be incredible, transformers 7.1 comes to mind. Large/huge sound at reference level from these bad boys will do the trick.The singles/lp's/slants and t8's are fantastic and sure all t12's i'll admit  is overkill but thats what upgrading is all about always going for the upper limits of the hobby. I enjoy my setup as is with the smaller more practical sized models doing the side and back work. My  lcr t12's sealed are great sounding for both music and best for movies. I've gotta contact jeff and see what time table for availibility.  

post #4542 of 18373
Yeah, I guess on the weekends you can rent your speakers over to the local imax and upgrade their sound system by about 10x. tongue.gifwink.gifbiggrin.gif


talk about glorious overkill? smile.gif


Q (Archaea) I need help moving my couch this weekend can you bring your truck over?

A. (dragonleepenn) Sure

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for someone kind enough to demo their JTR speakers with a fellow Canuck. I'm ready to purchase a 9.1 speaker system but I'm hesitant on spending thousands of dollars without hearing them first.

So if you are in the GTA and help me out please me a PM with details.

Thanks in advance.

It's only OverKill if the room is too small.
Your theater is a perfect fit for 7 T12's and
they would blend seamless.
Don't settle for less than T12's for SS
and Slant 8's on the rears. Mabey add a
rear subwoofer between the slant 8's.
I would put as big as I could reasonably fit.
I will look forward to reading your choice.
Good Luck

Certainly no one here is going to stop you if you want to go balls-out with the T12s, but your not likely to actually be able to notice a difference in dynamics with the T12s vs it's smaller relatives in the surround channels. Any of the JTR speakers can cover better than reference levels with reasonable power without breaking sweat in a home environment. The DD15 will get lost in the process.

There was a guy here a few years ago who had 7 Revel Ultima Salons in his basement HT and I always thought he was the king of excess. He was really into multichannel music and wanted 7 identical speakers properly powered in his custom designed and built HT. I think he had quad Fathom F13 subs as well in his pursuit of a no holds barred audio system.

If you go for 7 T12's, you're gonna need more subs as no single sub (even an Orbit Shifter) is going to be able to hang with 7 properly powered T12's. I'd say the 7 Triple 12's and a couple of OS's would put you right at the top of the Crazy MF'er systems list. smile.gif

Living in West Virginia I have never been able to audition or listen to
any high end speakers or anything audio for that matter. I even had a
Bose V-20 lifestyles system just a little less than 3yrs ago. My wife liked it.
I spent about a year reading Definitive Technology website and looking at
the pictures, They are Master marketers. I first purchased a Mythos ST system
with a SC Ref subwoofer and 2 weeks later I bought 4 Mythos 10's and another
SC Ref sub. Now a complete 9.2 system.
I was sure my house was going to crumble, not to mention the frequent complaints from the neighbors,
and my wife constanstly saying to turn it down was my future.
Once everything was hooked up for about a month the only part of the above that happened
was MY wifes complaints . I was not impressed but completely let down. The old cartoon where
the animal turns into a lollipop (SUCKER) it how I felt. What marketing DEFTECH has.
My compliments to the photographer and writing departments.
I started reading about the SUBM HP so I took a chance and bought one. That is when it
became clear that I had purchased my first "real" piece of audio equipment.
What a revelation. Finally it all made since.
If I wanted bigger sound then I had to look at bigger euipment. Thats why I have a bias to the t12"s
over the t8's even for surround speakers. There is a depth that is created inside the T12 box
like someone walking down a staircase or the sound of a Gatlin gun.
My blind faith purchase of JTR AND SEATON products was a bullseye.
skip to now and I have been on the upgrade path for 1 year and my system is now
3 T12's HT vented
2 Subm HP'S
4 mythos 10's
I plan on replacing them with
2 T12 lp
2 slant 8's
an adding a subm XL next
If it takes me another 2yrs to get my room complete so what
I am finally enjoying the journey.
The truly unexpected positive that was a SUPRISE is
my wife loves our system simply because it does not hurt
her ears at reference levels. Her reference being -20
which is extremely loud and crystal clear on T12"s.

Basically what I am saying is:

"Anybody want want to buy some gently used DEFTECH Mythos euipment?" haha

I have to go to work so I will edit and finish this later
Because of my Bose and DefTech purchases
Overkill does not apply but
underkill will lead to frustration!
WVchris

For Christmas of 1993 I bought a
DCM Time Windows Three 5.1 system
I kept it for about 5 years as I remember.
my first movie on it was Tombstone.
I feel old as that was almost 20 yrs ago.

I've got 4 rythmik subs in my room,two f25 dual 15" at the front and two f15 single 15" at the rear, they'll keep up easily. I'm thinking of adding some crown amps to compliment my bryston amps. Some guys here are using crown amps with excellent results other then noise from the fans which for me won't be a problem as all equipment is in it's own room. Well if they call the police on me for overkill, i guess they won't go to hard on me,many of them hang with me when we're off duty.

That sould be adequate subwoofage. Like Chris said ... "Why not"
Since you have the law on your side I say go for it. cool.gif

That's what I did, but I got in on the intro pricing for the T12HT-LP's, so it was not that much more than the T8's for surrounds. I would recommend having the wide speakers as T12's, at a minimum, so they match the L/C/R's.

     Extremely Very Cool! Ok! You are the man. Thats a great looking HT, must sound incredeible! Rmk has a very cool HT which inspired me to go ahead with JTR speakers a few months back. Having lived with them i can say all the positive reveiws here have been correct! These speakers really shine for HT and not to shabby on music. They are phenomenal! I've posted pictures here before of my setup, we have some similar colors to our rooms. I don't plan on using wides in the HT, however when i get the other 4 t12's lp, i'll use a pair of my singles for the highs. Just a little moving around a few speakers.

post #4552 of 18373
Triple12's all around would make for an amazing audio experience. I'm thinking that would make your room sound like being inside of a great pair of headphones only with better bass. Thanks for posting the pics again GEO and DLP. You guys are definitely raising the bar ... cool.gifcool.gifcool.gif

BTW DLP, what brand/model are those chairs?
post #4553 of 18373
Hi Guys,

In the process of upgrading to a full JTR set-up. biggrin.gif

For sub, I've decided on a Cap S2.

For LCRs, I'm tossing up between the two versions of the T12 - vented (T12HT) and sealed (T12LP).

I understand that the T12LP provides more flexibility in room placement, as it can be placed on the room boundary. However, it sacrifices a little on midbass, when compared to the T12HT.

Note: I understand that placing the T12LP on the room boundary will increase the bass output

The flexibility in placement is definitely appealing, but I'd prefer not to compromise on mid bass output.

Can anyone explain the issues with placing the T12HT on the room boundary, or any other disadvantages it has over the T12LP?

Thanks

Superaaa
I doubt if an audible difference can be heard. I believe it to be
more of a situation issue.
If space is no problem then the T12 HT is best. I have mine
16" off front wall and 4' from corners. Combined with audyssey
and room treatments it is excellent.
If going in a baffle or only a couple inches to a wall or corner then
the T12 lp is voiced to work better. The overall size is smaller so
as to fit areas were the HT may not.
I will use the LP version for my side surrounds so I can keep them 4"
off side wall and to take up a little less space.
Whichever you choose don't look back.

     Hi Rmk! Here's the link for those chairs,modernlinefurniture.com,They are actually lounge/nightclub furniture. I wish they were not as wide as they are, 44". Otherwise very comfy . I love the color scheme on the chairs,they also come in an off white /black scheme. They are leather/with vinyl on the backs-go figure! People always comment with a wow! and how cool they look and feel. I think your the guy that rose the bar around here and i'm glad you did. As many will agree on this forum, you can't always demo speakers sold on the internet with no real way of knowing what they'll sound like it can be a challenge.   With reveiws  photo's, and the passion you have demonstrated for the hobby you have translated your insight about the JTR speakers very well indeed.          Thanks!

I agree,in my case the room is 13' at the front and flares out to 15' by the back wall kinda like v shape but no peek, a flat wall. My L&R fronts are close to the front side walls and i have no issues. See the picture below that the side wall is treated heavyly and the trap is angled. Of course the front wall is treated entirely as well as corner super chunks. All treatment at the front wall and corners are of ultratouch denum insulation.     Thanks! 

post #4557 of 18373
Here we go again, every time it gets close to fall I consider upgrading anything in my system. Here is what I have, with current issues and all!

LCR JTR Triple 12 LF's (almost 4 years old)
2 Captivators (one pops so badly I can't even use it any volume, passive radiator needs replacement)
rears-B&W s603's (one speaker is missing rear wire binding thanks to my 3&7 yr old boys)
Emotiva XPA-5
Crest CC4000 driving subs
Onkyo PRSC 886
Epson UB6500
134" motorized screen
50" Pio Pro Elite Plasma behind the screen

I really don't use the system that much but the fact that one sub is in need of help has me looking at any opportunities to upgrade. I mostly watch NFL (no audio challenge there) and a lot of concert DVD's at a very loud volume, I want to feel like I am at the concert! My room is fairly big, 24x8x40.

Any suggestions on where to upgrade? Jeff mentioned the new driver will fix the popping issue but I will need to do a minor change within the box and that scares me a bit.

I should also be able to make it to the PA/Philly area GTG in October, it's less than 10 minutes from my house.

Thanks!!

John

Ok, I'm looking for someone to slap me in the face, or at least say this idea has merit or is completely stupid and a waste of existing resources. You tell me.
I'll be calling Jeff tomorrow to discuss a sub for my full JTR system described a few posts above. Options being a Orbit Shifter, a Captivator S2 or possibly a pair or passive Captivators.

My existing sub is a Velodyne DD-15 and I tend to agree with previous comments that my future JTR sub, T12's and Slant 8's, will overpower it into a afterthought on overall system performance.

One Idea I had was to run the L and R T12HT's as "large" and splice the wire to run high level input into the DD-15 covering the bottom ranges down to 15/20hz and using the DD-15's EQ to make a smooth transition across the T12's lower end frequencies. I would then run the soon to be ordered JTR sub with a SMS-1 to handle the LFE channel as well as crossover work from the center and surround channels.

Is this idea dangerous or disadvantageous to the left and right T12's running full range with a sub re-enforcement?
Is this a "waste" of a originally $3k DD-15 to relegate it to this type duty?
Would I actually gain anything? My thoughts are that I could run the servo on the DD-15 in full musical mode to create really tight base for a true full range stereo experience while using a SMS-1 on the heavy hitter sub to create a flat 15-120hz response on the LFE track not worrying as much about the crossover frequency as you would if you ran both subs doing LFE + crossover work.

Executive Summary Question: Is there any advantage to running the L/R speakers a full range with a decently capable and very tunable sub like a DD15 acting as their bottom end and "saving" a monster sub like a Orbit Shifter to pure LFE goodness?

I don't think I want to sell my DD-15 for a somewhat hefty loss but I don't think it'll add too much to my future system LFE wise based on the performance of the subs I'm considering.

Actually, that idea or something similar can have plenty of merit. I do something very similar, but with small stereo subs covering the bottom end with a pair of T8s. If you are using the pre-out outputs from an AVR to send signals to a power amp, split the outputs and high-pass the signal that goes to the main amp at whatever crossover you decide to go with. You can use f-mods which are available at partsexpress.com. Then match the crossover on the DD15 to the value of the f-mod. Send the unfiltered split to the DD15. Then you set the AVR to send "large" signal to L&R front.

It's nice because it gives you an additional indepent level of control over the bass in the L&R front channels.

I don't think I want to sell my DD-15 for a somewhat hefty loss but I don't think it'll add too much to my future system LFE wise based on the performance of the subs I'm considering.
I think the idea is a terrible waste of the excellent JTR subs. The JTR subs can do it all - and better. You cannot escape the compression that will occur with the DD-15 at the mid to upper range of the T12's output. There is no bandpass that will avoid this reality. If you wanted to highpass the DD-15 and use it at a much reduced gain as a filler sub to improve FR ala Geddes, then maybe. But a pair of Captivators will make the DD-15 irrelevant and simply hamper your system headroom.

Sell the DD15 and put those funds towards the JTR's.

Of course, that's just my 2$
