JTR subs really are amazing! I have a CAP 2400 (the powered version) and am in awe of this thing! I have it in my living room on the first level in a very large open floor plan (roughly 9,500 cubic feet). I love bass and needed something with tons of output and this thing has it in spades! Big, powerful, clean bass that never seems to distort or make a bad sound at silly listening levels with bass ran hot. I've ran the CAP up in the front corner (12' away) paired with a Rythmik FV15HP temporarily right behind the MLP so the FV wouldn't have to work as hard. The nearfield is where the majority of tactile response comes from in my room. Recently, curiosity got the best of me so I moved the CAP behind the MLP with the driver facing into my back and the FV up front. With the Cap setup like this, the slam and tactile feel that it delivers is just crazy! The way I had it set up previously with Cap upfront and FV behind was great but with the Cap behind, (although not quite a much extention) it takes it to another level. I have to keep the Volume lower on the FV upfront to keep it from working it to hard at real loud levels but its works because the Cap pretty much takes the majority of the load. I tried stacking both subs behind couch but preferred a sub upfront as well though to pull the some of the bass sounds forward a little and balance it a little better. The FV is great but would love to have a Cap 1400 upfront to pair with the 2400 directly behind MLP ....maybe some day.
Somehow my wife agreed to let me leave the Cap behind the couch
I think she must have felt sorry for me dragging it back and forth from the front of the room to behind the couch. Its a pretty damn beastly sub and looks like a half sized refrigerator setting behind the couch when its in the normal upright position. Surprising though, if I lay it down on its side, it doesn't look near as huge and blends in a lot better. This also allows me to get the driver a little closer to the couch. I wish I had a dedicated room but this will have to work for now.
I watched Mad Max Fury Road the other day at -5 MVC and subs +6db hot. It was the best bass and movie experience I've ever had! I got beat up with loads of clean potent bass
. Watched it in 3D on the projector. Everything was so real and intense feeling that I even found myself flinching on multiple occasions.
