As more and more ppl buying these speakers, i thought that there should be a centralized thread to post pics, comments, setup.

Good idea. I'm a happy customer, Triple 12LF's for LCR driven by Emotiva XPA-5 with B&W DM602s3 as rears and a Paradigm PW2100 sub. Epson 6500ub PJ, Onkyo 886 pre/pro, Cinetension2 134" screen and Oppo BR player. My system ROCKS and it is not finished. Need window treatments and an acoustical panel or two.


I'm still playing around with the Audssey settings and the crossover settings for the JTR's.

I have my 2010 Triple 8's. Great build & sound quality, small size, Dynamic, efficient, great clarity/resolution in midrange and highs, neutral sound. What I need now is a more powerful amp & more powerful sub(s) to go with them.

My Amp is pretty similar to the Emotiva XPA-5 see here you seem to be happy with having enough power for the 12LF's?

Tom,

What amp are you using? What do you feel is lacking with the current amp?

I'm probably going to go all JTR for my HT (5.1) but theres been one nagging question left. I currently have a Denon 2809CI that I just got that is rated at 115w (7.1) into 8 ohms and is not rated for 4 ohms, though from other posts I here that this receiver doesn't have a problem driving 4 ohm speakers. Considering the room is no more than 2,500 cubic feet (sitting maybe 9-12 feet away from the speakers)and these speakers have such high sensitivities (T8s). Do you think getting an additional amp and using the denon as a pre would even be significant? Sure I could probably turn it up a little louder but wouldn't the denon be plenty?


Of course I would get the appropriate amp for the captivator.

If the Denon will drive them ok then at what levels do you want to listen at?

You will get 98dB's at 1m (3.33 FT) @1watt. If you want say 105dB's at 12ft then you will need just over 64 watts of power. (64 watts will give you 116dB's @ 3.33ft less 12dB's for 12ft away).


Also remember that the Denon is rated at 115 watts doesn't mean it will deliver that all channels driven at once.

My advise get an amp.

I'm using a receiver. A Yamaha RX-V2600 which is 130wpc into 8 ohms. I was looking at going to something like 350wpc into 4 ohms. I'm glad the speakers are nice and efficient.

I'll bet the d-sonic 525 x 3 would be incredible with those speakers.

I love mine with my JBL Pro's. You could also find a nice 3 channel 200 watt (honest) used amp...like Acurus or Parasound. really ggod values.

Whenever you play loud near to amp max power output, you will hear higher distortion from the amp. So it's advisable to get an amp with higher headroom so that it can play loud and clean.

The d-sonic amps are really nice looking amps, however, way over my budget.

I chose to drive the 2010 Triple 8's I am putting in with a QSC RMX850 in bridged mono mode for each speaker, 800 watts per speaker FTW

Depends on what max SLP you want. My HT amp is a Sunfire 400/7 (1200W @ 4 Ohms). I also have a Crest CC4000 pro amp that will be used with a pair of Captivator subs that Jeff is building.


I'm going to test the 12LF's and T8's with the Crest (1350W @ 4 Ohms) but don't expect to hear much difference. Anything over 1000W should allow peak SPL into the 120's and that's plenty in my 3600 CF sealed room.

Got my LCR 2010 8s today. Had the 09 versions previously. It's been a while since I've listened to the 09s AND I had over $1000 of upgrades done to my EAD pre/pro too.......what I'm hearing is excellent but I'm sure some is due to the upgrades and some to the speakers. The biggest difference that strikes me compared to what I remember of the 09 8s is a much warmer and rounded sounding midrange....so the midrange character definitely seems more of a presence than the previous versions. I have a good bit of hum with no signal present....can here it from 3-4 feet away but it does not affect the sound. Just using a 2 channel system right now with an 8" Mirage powered sub, modded EAD 8800 pre/pro, Wyred4Sound ST-250, and Oppo 970HD.


Extremely pleased and can't wait to get the theater set up. Jeff installed some inserts for me like before so I slickly have these mounted on some M&K ST1 stands and tilt brackets.

To get rid of that hum just use a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter on the Wyred amp. That's how I got rid of my hum.

I would be careful of floating the ground on a digital amp.


Chances are the hum is from a ground problem with cable or sat wiring.

My bad....wrong choice of word. It's not a hum and I've never had a ground problem at my place...several years and several systems. It's the hiss coming from the speakers when no signal is present but they are receiving power. All of my speakers have done this to some degree. Again it's not a problem. I think because of their sensitivity, my previous "coming out of standby" volume setting was quite a bit louder than with my previous speakers therefore the hiss was louder.......I think I just need to turn down my master volume a bit and save it so it powers on quieter.



I'm going to do some serious listening over the weekend and I'll post my thoughts Sunday night or Monday. I mainly listen to blues and hard rock/metal, but I'll be sure to spin a variety. My poor little 8" Mirage sub is going to get abused but it's hangin in there and I'm quite impressed for the money. I WILL be purchasing a couple of big dogs though when I get a theater set up.

High effeciency speakers will definitely make noticable whatever hiss, hum, or other problem that might have gone under the radar before. There is a lot I have to chase down in my own system.
