Not necessarily asking which sounds the best, as I realize that is subjective. I am just curious as to how they sound on characteristics such as soundstage depth, imaging, detail, revealingness, bass responce, ect.....Congrats on completing the build!
Well I have yet to build out my ae td12x/seos/360 setup, but the plan is to capture the best of both the LS6 and the JTR's with it. I was never a big fan of the JTR's f3 being so high, and part of the reason the LS6's kick butt for music is they are flat to 20hz, so with the new build, I want something in between perhaps. The higher xmax value of the x model of 14mm will be a good way to accomplish this in a nice ported box. I am hoping to have the response be pretty flat to around 50hz, maybe lower. I think it is pretty key to have your mains have the ability to extend a good bit below the XO point.
I will certainly have a write-up of how I feel all three sound, but so far, after watching the new batman last night, the JTR's take the cake for movie watching, but I am still dead sold on the ls6's for music listening, they are just so well balanced, and throw a truly immersive soundstage. I do think that if I had a third for a center channel, my opinions might be a little different, as I just am not the biggest fan of the phantom center. The strangest thing happened again last night while watching the movie that I have had happen before, but for some reason the right channel just doesnt seem to perform right. I go in and level-match, to 75dB and then listen to music in 2ch and it sounds fine, then I go to watch a movie and to center the image I had to bump the right channel over 5dB to get it to sound right!! I am quite frustrated with that right now. I quit watching the movie until I could pinpoint what is causing the issue.
