DIYSG HT/HTM Lineup Changes

If the following has already been mentioned on AVS Forum I haven't seen it. Changes to the HT/HTM speaker lineup have been posted on the DIYSG website:

@mtg90 said this:

Quote:
The HTM-6, HTM-8 and HTM-10 have been replaced with the HT series which offers much of the same performance for a lower cost.
@Eric H said this:

Quote:
The HTM-12 is going to be getting some changes. The new model wll be switching to a Celestion compression driver. It will also be getting a new custom designed woofer, it's based off the deltalite but has a copper shorting ring in the motor, longer voice coil, new cone, dustcap, spider and surround, and perhaps most important to some of you no more silver ring around the outside.

The new woofer was actually intended for use in a new Fusion line but since those woofers were already ordered, the stock of the 2512's was running low and the HTM-12 was going to need changes to move away from the DNA-325 anyway it was decided to put the new woofers to use in the HTM-12 as the new Fusion designs may have been a long while out. The new Hyperlite-12 woofer does loose a little sensitivity (now 95dB) but gains about 10Hz of bass extension in the same enclosure and gives more midbass kick then the original Deltalite.

With a new compression driver and woofer the crossover has also been redesigned though it retains much of the same voicing as the original. The main change being that the crossover point has been lowered to 1250hz to give better directivity matching between the woofer and waveguide and some minor response adjustments that I feel give a cleaner presentation in the midrange and treble.

I just finished building 4 HT-12s for my surrounds and I am waiting for Eric to send me the 4 HT-8s I ordered for ATMOS. Hopefully they will go good with my LCR 1099s!

I can confirm the HT's match up perfectly with the 1099's

Does anyone know if the HT-6 will be back? I remember @Erich H saying that the HTM-6's did not sell well. Just wondering if this is the case for the HT-6 as well as I haven't seen them on the diysg website for a while.

The HT-6's haven't actually gone up on the site yet. I ordered the woofers about a 1.5 years ago and had them sitting here ready to go but never opened any up. I had 2 initial samples that I got from Celestion and sent those to the designer to finish up the HT-6 crossover.

It was completely ready to go and I went to get a woofer to take the product photos for the site......and all the woofers Celestion sent me 1.5 years ago were completely different than what they were supposed to be! Some unusual custom 6" woofer that I've never seen before. So I had to reorder the correct woofers and they should be here any day now. Of course it's been so long that now I'm almost out of the HT compression driver and waiting on the next run of those. So who knows when the HT-6 will finally make it to the site.

Well, thank goodness!

I was ready to order Titan 15's, but now I must wait. I don't really need the 15's, and now I know I don't need the 18's, but that horn needs to be tested.

I don't care if I never run them over 20% I guess?

Large horns can sound great up close, but how close is too much? We will find out.

The Titan 818 horn image is hard to judge how much wider and taller the flair of each speaker's horn section really is over the 615. Are there physical measurements yet of how wide this new horn is compared to the 615? The horn flair portion looks to be 2 or 3 inches wider?

What is the height to width ratio of the new horn? Same as the 615?

I'm just thinking out loud hear regarding the Titan-818s, even though I can't magically accommodate what I am proposing.

This new Titan should form a new line up with dual 10" and 12" models to replace the similar '99 models. This way you could have the 818s as your LCR and the dual 10/12s as as your wides and surrounds with HT-10/12s for Atmos duty.

If I could build a totally dedicated room this is what I would aim for.

Thanks @Erich H . I must've got it mixed up with the HTM-6. I thought I saw the HT-6 on there for a short period of time but apparently not. Lol.

Do you happen to know what the sensitivity of the HT-6 will be and the pricing of the kit with flat pack? I'm wanting to do HT-8's for LCR and either HT-6's or HT-8's for surrounds.

Here is some other info.... I think it uses bigger drivers too in the Horn

Quote:
Eminence 18" woofer,
Celestion 8" midrange
Same Celestion compression driver as the 615LX.

99dB / 2.83v
8 Ohms.

350/1700hz crossover points.

In general just bigger/badder then the 615LX

@Aaron37

about 18 months ago I did manage to get a pair of HTM6's
( the 8's were OS or I'd have bought those)
used as L/R in my mancave,
using an older Emo UPA 7, 125 wpc,
also driving the CC, an F6CC

the room can do 5.3.4

by all accounts from others, the HT6's are comparable,

the imaging. etc. for this pair is "joyfull"
props @mtg90
and the SEOS horn project


i.e. on the denon X5200, -20 on the MV is plenty, at about just under 7 feet

if the budget / room layout allows,
get the HT8's ALL AROUND

it's that nebulous "matched timbre" thing
not necessarily a "must" have but a comforting thought for any latent OCD

I can fit cobalt 8's for my L+R. Is there a comparable smaller center? Or do I just have to man up and make a bigger horizontal center fit!

Use a third cobalt 8 for the center. You can turn those sideways without much trouble.

@asarose247

Thanks for the info! Ya, I've always been curious about a 5.x system with the same speakers throughout. I've never experienced it before. Do you think there will be a noticeable difference with HT-6's as surrounds? They will be fairly close the MLP unfortunately (around 3' maybe 2'10") and I figure with the smaller seos and woofer, there will be less distance required between my ears and the speaker to allow the sound from the CD and woofer to blend without creating a lobing effect. I've also contemplated the volt 6's for the coaxial design but want to stay timbre matched ish.

That's the reason I'm considering the HT-6's for surrounds. They share the same Celestion CDX1-1445 tweeter and mtg90 has said that the HT's are timbre matched well. But I here you on the OCD part, on a complete matching speaker set. Although the placement in the room I think will have a bigger effect on them sounding slightly different, but I could be wrong. Matt has said that the HT-8's need 3-4' minimum to blend the woofer and CD and the HT-12's need minimum 6' but preferably more.

In my dedicated theater space (hopefully in 2 years) I want to do a 7.4.4 setup with HT-12's as LCR with HT-8's as surrounds and atmos. I was thinking about doing all speakers as HT-12's but I won't have 7' between the surrounds and the closest listeners. Also the HT-8's have a 40° (+/- 20&#176 vertical dispersion vs 30°'s for the HT-12's which should help with aiming the atmos speakers at all listening positions. Being not as deep is also benefit for mounting on the ceiling and making narrower columns. I thought about doing volt 8's for atmos but I've read that the HT's>volt's even for atmos provided you can aim them a bit towards the listening positions and the whole timbre matching thing as well. I'm a classic over analyser.

I believe that after he sold the 630 titans the @eng3 99 was thinking of doing a set with 2 x 21" woofers. So i am sure that shortly after they are released someone will do a dual woofer version. Not because you need it but because no one has yet. That would be truly awesome.

Analysis Paralysis- many here would be concerned if you didn't have some "confusion"
(delivered Louis Black style)
They will be fairly close the MLP unfortunately (around 3' maybe 2'10")

while REQ, Audy xt32?, will set trims,

that's way tight . .

since we haven't any other info about the room
this may be the time to give us more specifics

Is that for 1 row of seats
or just 1 seat (FTR, I sit in the middle of my dual reclining love seat- and I love it)
those speakers sit under a 65" 4K HDR TV so I'm entertained

usually when folk have a tight spacing situation
the first recommendation to give up info about the room
and then
and you won't be the first or last

can your turn everything 90 degrees?

ow for that distance
if no ATMOS involved-yet
moving the SS up higher may help avoid hot spotting ,

you might consider Volt 6's or 8's for this specific room

as we don't know about your woofage,
all speakers will be set to small

said 6 /8's could eventually be moved to be your ATMOS layer

but most of the sound will be LCR so give that the priority

and

FTR, those HTM6's or HT6's will create a very deep , wide, high, wrap-around sound field given the right source.

like this on YT- Jamey Dupuis playing Europa on harp guitar

these are my V6's on my SCATMOS Array, on an 8" ceiling, in the corners of a 7 foot square- to fit the suggested angles and that's from late summer of 2014
as food for thought- and they work very very well from up there

try not to get any brain cramps from all of this

I know right. I a m hopefully going to get started on my room this fall and i am hoping to run a set of titans. The issues i am looking at though is space. I would love to do the 818 but i don't think that i will be able to shoehorn them in. I am planning to lay a set of BMD OMEGA Devistators on their side under the screen and the lay a set of titans on their sides as that will be close to proper height. Seem that it is approved by the designer as a non issue so i should be good to go. Otherwise i would have to put the woofer over the horn section. The back up plan is a set of HTM12 but i really want the titans.

I just want @EricH to Get more stuff in stock so I can round out the rest of my Home Theater. I already have the 1099’s up front as LCR, but I want the HT10 or HT12’s as my side and back surrounds and some volts for atmos duties. But there isn’t anything available now. 😞

Wrong thread maybe, but you guys are making me question my plan: you think it's OK to use HTM-12 as LCR and HT-8 as surrounds? I have yamaha(I think) in ceilings for atmos.

Direct quote from Matt Grant:
"There is very little difference between the HT-8 and HTM-8, this is partly why the smaller HTMs have been phased out. Voicing on the HT series is also extremely similar to HTM so there is no issue using HTM-12 LCR with HT surrounds."

It should work out great for you! In a dedicated space the HT-8's appear to be an ideal speaker for surrounds and honestly even for LCR.

I think this new horn and mid might just do the deed. Or wake the dead.

I can fit the horn and a 15" woofer.

Will there be a design that has the new horn and a 15" woof?

The 15" woooof version might sell more than the 18"?

The crazies that want the 18" version will likely want a dual 18" version, but that is really silly.... Unless a very large room.

It will be in a living room open to the kitchen/dining room and therefore no wall to mount the surrounds on. They would have to be placed on end tables or stands behind the couch (which my wife and I don't really want due to looks even though the sound would benefit greatly). I'm starting to think that in ceiling volts or putting the HT's in ceiling will be the way to go for surrounds. 9' 1" ceiling height will allow the speaker to be almost 6' away from our ears which is much better than 3'. I've never heard surround channels mounted in ceiling before other than for atmos duty so I'm not 100% sure how it will compare. From things I've read people say it sounds quite good, just not as good as proper placement which is expected. I would love to do HT's for surrounds but if a coaxial design is better than I'm all for going with volts. Putting the HT's baffle flush with the flat ceiling should in theory help with SBIR as creates a "baffle wall" so to speak other than not having a ton of mass and absorption on the surface. It might work out ok.

It will be 1 couch for the MLP and I don't care about the other seats in the living room. No possibility of atmos speakers or a 7 channel base layer. Subs will be 2 DIY sealed UM15-22 (18's are out of the question) powered by a behringer NX6000D. Eventually we will put a dedicated HT space in the basement with 4 18" full Marty's and 4 atmos speakers with an AT screen for a 7.4.4 setup with minimum 5' away from the closest seat to surround speaker. This living room "HT" if you can call it that, just has to make do with its downfalls and I know I will still enjoy it even with a lot of things not being ideal.

The TV will be mounted a little higher than I'd like so it can be seen from the kitchen but the plus will be that an HT-8 will just barely fit under the TV on top of a short entertainment stand and the waveguide will almost be at ear height. With the 20° vertical dispersion above 0°, it should work out great sitting at around 9' ish away. I don't want to get too much off topic here so if I end up having questions just regarding the space I have, I'll start my own thread.
