The JTR speakers are a option but at this time I am focusing on just the subs unless I get a killer deal on the jtr speakers that I cant refuse. The JBLs are giving me high spl with great clarity, imaging and soundstage with no distortion at reference and I got a killer deal on them. I know the JTR are better speakers but I believe subs are a much more noticeable upgrade over speakers. I have not personally heard JTR speakers but I heard they are absolutely amazing.
I'm kind of a have your cake and eat it too kind of guy. Nothing says that you can't get the subs that you want now, and change-out your speakers later if you decide to. Especially if you don't break the bank on your subs.
For the time being at least, I consider the Cap 4000ULF's (with the new drivers) to be the best ULF bang-for the-buck on the planet. In order to be competitive down low, with the Cap 4000, I think you would have to go to at least the Funk Ultra 21" and maybe even to the Ultra 24". And, I think that the cost of those is going to begin at about $7,000 or higher apiece, regardless of cabinet finish.
Don't get me wrong, if money is absolutely no object, I know what sub company I would recommend every time. And, personally, I love Nathan's hand-finished cabinets, too. That would matter a lot to me. But, I think that there would be a very
substantial cost difference between four Cap 4000ULF's, and four of the Funk Ultra 21's, in even the simplest cabinet finish.
I agree with everyone else who thinks that four Cap 4000ULF's in that room would be amazing!
