Just my opinion, but based on actual speaker specs and most real world scenarios... So that means I'm right


This is the same thing I was told when I wanted to do 7 212RTs in a small room. Glad I went with this advice.

I get what you are saying...

However, it seems vince32837 only has 1 row of seating... and because he can...

I also listed the Single 8HT or Noesis 110HT in the Not so nuts package.

Speakers: L/C/R: JTR Noesis 212HT. Surrounds: Jamo C103, KEF Q100, Polk Audio RTiA3.
Subwoofer: JTR Captivator 4000ULF.
AVR: Denon AVR-X4400H. TV: Samsung UN75NU8000FXZA.

FS: Jamo C103, KEF Q100 and Polk RTiA3

Guys,

Thanks for the advice....

When I had the dedicated 30 ft bat cave, and 2 rows of seating and side surrounds, I had 11 ft distance to my sides each way with 228's..Here in FL some friends and relatives would come over 2-3x a year..thats it!
so for Round 2 theater, I'm not catering to the 2-3X a year crowd...2 nice media chairs at the "money position". Anybody comes over, Ill have foldable padded chairs or let them sit in the money seats...


Beast says S8 sides and S8 rears...

plus 4 x S8 FoR ATMOS

In Round 1 I had one JTR OS sub, that provided serious bass in 30 ft x 21 ft x 10 ft space! (Not Beast standard of bass I'm sure )

Chucky- In my case a pair CAP 2400's are better than one Cap 4000 monster for room response?..or maybe I start with one 2400 and see where I'm at?..im guessing a 2400 is no slouch....(will check in databass)

In 2015; Round 1, Jeff took care of me....multiple speaker discount and my one of my 215RT 18" driver was damaged in transit, arrived withe a tear in one..got me a replacement in 5 days!

I think the bonus room comes with 20 amps total for the whole room one breaker...I dont think that will do???....roof is real close to room ceiling you cannot climb above ceiling..need a sharp electrical dude for wiring
or have to turn the room in cyborg with wiring exposed inside the room to projector and speakers.

Yeah, Single 8HTs or even the Noesis 110HTs for surrounds and ATMOs are already pretty spectacular.

2 optimized subs are better than 1 optimized sub. The key here is of course optimized -- proper placement and set up. Many people just want to set it and forget it (flanking your TV with subs is not it) and don't have the proper tools, then they might be better off getting the largest sub (more output per dollar) that works for their space.

Since you are going to run wires for projectors and speakers, you might as well just get a couple dedicated circuit to the room. Getting 2 dedicated circuit is not that much more than getting 1. The work requires opening up some drywall. You need an electrician to run the dedicated circuits, but you can get a plumber (cheaper) to run wires for speakers and projectors, if you can't do it yourself. Hopefully you are handy or can get someone to patch up your walls and ceiling for you.

You will definitely need more than a single 20 amp circuit. That will be good for you receiver / processor and amps as well as other equipment. I would run enough 20 amp lines to have a dedicated circuit for each JTR sub (if that is what you are looking at).

Sheetrock is easy to patch and retexture (by a pro). Cut or have someone cut, the needed channels in your drywall so you can run all the speaker wire, hdmi etc. if you don’t you will probably not be happy with your set up either not having the speakers you want or having speaker wire draped everywhere

FedEx freight just delivered two of the new RS2 subs!

Had a friend come over to help me get them upstairs but we realized we need two more people. I think we had four guys when I brought my S2 up a few years ago.

Stupid question - I have two 20 amp circuits running my theater room. Most of the equipment is on one circuit (one sub) with a sub on another. Each side of the room is a circuit. So, not that balanced. Lol.

How do I add another two circuits (20amp) to the room when it’s upstairs, and far away from the panel? House is completed as of a year ago.

You have an electrician add circuits which may require a separate box and run metal conduit from the breaker box on the outside of the house along areas that are not noticeable (hopefully in the back of the house). Then drill a hole from the inside of the room (where the receptacle/plug will be located) to the outside (actually drill the hole first so you know where the conduit needs to go)... then paint the conduit to match.

I think we slid the box up the carpeted stairs last time but maybe a dolly would be easier.

Just my opinion, but based on actual speaker specs and most real world scenarios... So that means I'm right


Hmm, I probably should re-think this setup, then?

Surrounds are Noesis 212? and rear surrounds are Triple 12 HT:


Wides, Front, and center are Triple 12 HT:


Atmos are Slanted 8 HT:

Certainly not if you are happy with it, which I am sure you are Looks like you have a nice wide room with seating in the middle of it so you are still getting good coverage. My post was for "Most real world scenarios. People can do whatever they want though. A wider dispersion surround is always going to be more beneficial with multiple rows of seating however.

I am building a new basement theater. I already have Noesis 212 HT fronts, dual S2s, and Quintuples as surrounds from my previous theater. Planning to add 4 Atmos overhead speakers. What would you guys recommend? Single 8s or Slanted 8s? Regular or LP version? What are advantages and disadvantages of each of these choices?

Basement ceiling height is 7 feet 8 inches unfinished so a little over 7 feet after it’s finished. I may end up going with 2 rows of seating but haven’t finalized that yet.

Projector will be JVC NX7, with a Seymour AV AT screen.

Get them up as high as possible. I used a mixture of all of those in a 7.2.6 build - I recessed them in the ceiling to get them close to flush. The downside to this is that you have to be sure of placement.

Which of these options are more forgiving placemat wise? Or in other words cover more than just MLP well.

I think d_c means that recessing them in the ceiling means you have to be sure of placement (measure twice, cut once!). Any of the Single 8 variants are forgiving for placement given their wide imaging. I use 4x Slant 8 LP for Atmos with excellent results. Given your low ceiling, I'd definitely want to use the LPs.

Can someone point me to the post which has FR graphs? I think Jeff posted those, but I can't seem to find the now (even the search did not help, too much noise). Thanks in advance.

Hmmmm...... Some interesting changes on the JTR site.

Lower extension on the 210RM's? Nice.

No more single 8's of any flavor?
Wonder if there will be an LP 8 or 10?

How do the Slant 10s compare to the Slant 8s?

Looks like the 212RT sensitivity was reduced to 98db from 101db. I wonder what changed?
