its time - moving from Seaton Submersives to JTR Captivators
Been contemplating this for sometime now. Today Chad B performed calibration on my RS520 (the results were phenomenal btw, more on this on a separate thread) and he was going to do Audessy pro calibration on my system. During the process, he pointed out that one of my Seatons Subs was flashing 4 RED LED and no output... After a bit of research, I'm fairly certain that the amp is dead. Given that I purchase 2 of the 4 of the Seatons back in 2012, it was just my luck that it was one of them that gave out and is now out of warranty.
I have always wondered what the JTRs would be like in my environment, my room is completely sealed with the dimensions of 11'x21'x9'. 4 Submersives was fantastic but I think its time to satisfy the curiousity. Here is the plan... Either repair or replace the dead 2400W amp and keep 2 of the Seatons and move them upstairs to a more modest, smaller home theater and where I mostly listen to music. Sell the other 2 and sell the Rythmik F15HP that I currently have in the other room.
Now I'm down to either 2 Captivator 2400 or 2 Captivator 4000ULFs
I have room for only two and they would be both in the back of my theater. See the attached JPEGs.
Two C4000s would be about ~$6800-6900
Two C2400s would be ~$5000-5100
Question for the folks here, I think with 4 sealed subs, I had pretty good coverage. Now I'm going down to two and both of the subs will be at the rear of the theater. Guys see any issues or drawbacks to this one? I don't have an option of putting the JTRs up front as I don't have the height to accommodate without blocking the screen.
I think 2 C2400s would do the job and then some in that room but 2 C4000s, I will never play the "what if" game and it would be the end to my upgrade desires... lol yea right!
Need advice, coaching, opinions...
