Funny enough I used Roxul for the walls and the room is substantially quieter since I've done that. It was done initially for thermal help, but the 'deadness' of the room was a welcomed side effect!
Got to have good sound covered all over the place, right? I have a basic setup in the shop for now (Polk monitors, sony receiver) but want to build something nicer as soon as I have this stuff up and running.

Stay tuned, would love to do something like that once I've got everything settled in. cool.gif

Now that is my kind of toy to play with. I would be building or dreaming of building something all the time with that. smile.gif

Tomorrow is the big day!! The Danleys are in town, should be on the step tomorrow.

Yeah a DIY workshop would be the best yet. I would love to build a G-Horn.

I quoted reef, and I don't know how it quoted your comment. Even saw reefs comment in my reply. That's weird.

Thanks guys! I forgot to order speakon adapters and I don't know where to get them locally here, so I am going to be held up till I get them. I will find them this weekend. There is a guitar center up the road.

Dave didn't forget anything...I forgot to pop some speakons in the box for him. Everyone can blame me for being the dime holding up a dollar.

Yes...but don't do that with the speaker on it's back. You don't want debris falling into the CD.

Grills off. Shinned them up with Pledge multi surface and they are shining like new! Best stuff ever!

Are those little gift diffusion boxes I see on either side of that center? Interesting approach! Might look into it biggrin.gif

Not to derail the thread, but Mr. Jeff P. posted this picture on Facebook and Kevin posted it in the JTR speaker thread. Thought you ought to be made aware of his latest creation, The Noesis 215HT:

I saw that 215 picture last night on Jeff's page and had to giggle. Love it! biggrin.gif

The new jTr REX are big arse speakers for sure. Shipping on them will likely be more than many speakers cost smile.gif
post #712 of 772
I recently shipped 3 huge Danley speakers to Brandon using a freight company and I think he said it cost 350 ish? I believe he said Fedex/UPS would have been over twice that. I wonder if Jeff is planning on shipping everything with a company like what Brandon used.

With all the shipping he does, I bet his corporate rate is significantly lower than what an individual would get. With that said, those things are certainly going to be over the weight and dimensions limit for standard ground delivery, so it will almost certainly be through an LTL service or "Freight."

Carp, the shipping on mine ended up being a little more than that, once it was over and done. Tough pill to swallow for sure, but it was no doubt worth it biggrin.gif

Speaking of that, I haven't seen you say much about the comparison between the 2 Danley's - I could have missed it though. Too busy listening to them? smile.gif

Reef already has his new toys biggrin.gif I actually only got to crank on the fiddys good for the first time last night. I have gone through the g2g disc once or twice already, but just with them full range, not the subs. Last night I had two other avs members over (at different times) and gave them both a proper demo of some movie scenes and music. Man these things are special. I was talking to Andrew some about it last night in between the sessions. They have a similar (obviously) sonic signature to the 60's but are just much more refined. Even though the 60f's had the most presence of all the speakers IMO from the g2g, the 50's improve on that even more as well. Listening to the g2g disc, I was hearing things that I didn't hear at all before. SO much clarity and staging with them. One of my favorites with the 60's was how great they were with soundstaging. Well, the 50 improve once again on that as well. See a trend here? haha.

Yep, the 50's are just an improvement of the 60f's in all areas IMO. The two concerns I had were with a little response dip between 100-200hz, but my room supplements that area seemingly well so no issue there. The other was the top-end rolloff, but that certainly hasn't been anything that I have noticed either. Cymbals and triangles, the Blake track, all is there and still very strong. Bottom line, the game is over for me. Like, Period. These are the absolute pinnacle of my experience in HT so far, by a very fair margin.

Now it is just time to start working on some new sub boxes and get all that going again biggrin.gif

Very cool! Thanks.

I'm betting if my room was treated like yours I wouldn't have had any of the fatigue... and somehow your speakers would have been lost during shipping! tongue.gifwink.gif

When people here say they are done upgrading speakers I don't believe them... this time I think it's true though. smile.gif
post #718 of 772
Hmmm I keep forgetting that big bump I had around 1khz when measuring the Danley's - like you said before, that could have accounted for the fatigue. I wish I had tried to eq that out using the manual mcacc.... maybe it's for the best that I didn't!

Look at the size of that 215. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

How's your JTRs treating you? Once setup your room will be crazy.
