I know you would be very happy with the Triple 12's. If you are the type that will constantly wonder what if and the budget allows, get the Noesis.

If you have the $$$$ then go for the Noesis. There is nothing better than starting at the finish line.
If $$$$ matters go with the T12's. Try to find used if possible since they are built to last a lifetime.
Mine are now over 1 year old and are Brand New in appearance. As long as they are not left in the rain or get wet you cannot hurt them.

Well, if you can afford the Noesis without any issues then just get those. Any of them will be better than the Klipsch.

Coach, if you can still make it to my house at the end of the month at least you will have a baseline for how the T12 sound. Never heard the Noesis so can't help you there. For me, they kick #$$ on movies but the S2 is a big part of the equation (with a second one on order). I am mostly movies so music is not a big consideration in my decision to buy speakers...but I am also anal so I am sure at some point the dark side will take over and I will buy the Noesis. They don't currently make a smaller Noesis to match the triple 8 in size for a center channel so that would also hold me back from ever changing to the Noesis as I don't have the room in my set-up to use a Noesis (or T12) as center channel..

After seeing that video of the T8's on youtube one of my friends and I took them outside of my house and turned them up to see if they could be heard at his house which is about half a .333 of a mile and it was like they were next door. My neighborhood is .75 of a mile long I live at the end and you can tell exactly what song is playing everytime even a 3/4 mile away. I would try further but the hills get in the way.wink.gif

I have a feeling I won't be purchasing anything until at least the end of the month, so your offer for a demo will definitely help some.

As far as subs go, I feel like I have a decent setup.... 2 - HSU VTF-15H

Eventually I will be upgrading the surrounds and the subs in my system.

Great idea to get the demo. Be prepared for the S2's to give you a bad case of bass envy...wink.gif

No, Chris was talking about the individual speaker levels, they were at -12.

Chris, they did NOT sound bright to me at all, they sounded fantastic. I like how they sound in my room a little better, but that's where I'm used to hearing them.

That's a great story. I have always wanted to replicate the youtube video too biggrin.gif. Not to start another amp controversy but (wink.gif) I'm thinking it really requires that Lab Gruppen (or equivalent) amp Jeff used to drive the T8's to achieve the maximum effect.

Archaea's review said if any or the only flaw was mabey 3 songs sounded a little bright. That could be related to -12 channel level but since Audyssey was not used I do not know if it even matterss.
Jonathan's review is one of the BEST reviews I have ever read. Every word was writen with conviction and pure emotions. That is as Honest as it gets. Carp yours was great too but since you are biased by ownership I would expect nothing less.wink.gif
Thanks to both of you for the time you spent. When you guys want to have a GTG you make it happen. Sweet !!
Thanks again
Chris

I have sent Jeff an email to get some more information. If everything goes as planned, I will be putting my current LCR speakers up for sale to see if I can get any takers..

Just my own personal experience: e-mail = no response call = pick up right away or call back quickly
post #6554 of 18527
Yes, call or text is the way to go for sure.
post #6555 of 18527
By the way, this is for all the metal heads on this thread.

I started a thread for metal heads. I typed a ton of info that is probably only interesting to me, haha, but I would love to hear some recommendations of music from you guys as well as any other info you feel like posting.

Are there any plans (yet) to add to the Noesis line?

Not that I am aware of but one can hope. Guessing if Jeff thinks/hears there is a demand he would start building a smaller Noesis type speaker. I believe the pro line already has another version of the Noesis with a smaller horn so probably has all the parts he would need to build such a speaker.

post #6561 of 18527
Thanks countryWV,

I'd be interested in a smaller Noesis myself that was a bit easier on the wallet. But smaller may mean less quality parts and variance in sound and that defeats the purpose. I'm starting to think a bit like carp.
post #6562 of 18527
I bet if you pooled all the stuff in your house/garage that you no longer really use and sold it you would be well on your way to buying the Noesis. Hopefully that doesn't have to include the vette... jk, I know that's another hobby of yours.
post #6563 of 18527
I just placed an order for a pair of the 3TXs. 3-way, dual 10" neo drivers and same CD/horn as the 12" Noesis.........only 50lbs though. They will have inserts and be mounted on my M&K stands.

Ha, I would love to....but prolly not wink.gif It's gonna be several weeks I think.....Jeff is waiting on more CDs and he has to redo the xover......the normal 3TX xover has the horn a couple dBs hot since it's normal application has them much higher than HT use. If I can sell my T8s, I'll prolly get a 3rd for center duty.
post #6566 of 18527
I think the GTG in April will help a lot of us guys who are thinking about the Neosis. My bet is April 14th there will be a lot of speakers for sale!

Well being in knoxville, and possibly being interested in a big sub system, perhaps I will have this one done by the time you swing through and you could demo a Do-it-yourself setup done proper smile.gif

Me in the pic for size reference, haha

Funny that you wrote this... I am going through and selling all my unused A/V cables to help fund the purchase of my speakers. Plus, my company is forcing us to cash PTO days this year instead of allowing us to bank them....another key contributor to my speaker upgrade. biggrin.gif
