Fs Jtr Triple 12Ht Captivator Sub, Fp14000 Plate Amp, 4 Slanted 8 Surrounds

Recommended Posts

Well I'm finally selling off these beast speakers. I'm putting in Krix Neuphonix and Epicentrix gear as the new room is much smaller than my previous one 6.7 x 9 down to 5 x 5.2 ish - thats 60 down to 27sq metres.

These have recently sold on another thread in Melb for $1450 each so I'd be asking the same for the Triple 12's. http://www.jtrspeakers.com/home-audio/triple-12ht/

The Captivator sub without plate amp @ $1900. http://jtrspeakers.com/home-audio/captivator/

Plate amp $850 - used for about 10hrs. New 15amp australian plug attached. This is the FP14000 top of the line clone amp.

The slanted 8 surrounds sell for $999 USD each plus shipping and GST. 2 of them have screw holes in the top of them as I had used projector mounts to hang them from underside of ceiling. Screw holes do not effect their performance or operation. Asking $450 each. http://jtrspeakers.com/home-audio/slanted-8/ - what's up with their site? not working at present.

total of $8900. Will sell as a complete system for 8K.

New, this complete system will cost $11,400 approx, give or take a couple of hundred and based on shipping a pallet at 2K AUD, GST at 10% and no tariff.

Can be shipped at your expense anywhere in Australia.

PM or email if interested.

cheers,

Rich

Good luck with the sale Rich. I can tell you now that whoever picks up the kit will be blown away. I sold my T12s that Rich was refering to and the cost going from T12 to Cat12s was not worth the 2-5% difference in the system vs 3 T12s for the cost of 1 Cat 12.

Personally I would run them in a 5 x 5.s room in a heart beat :) They are effortless and sound amazing.

Couple of questions if that's OK:

You say "plate amp", is that what it is? Does the sub have a cutout to mount it? I ask because I thought a plate amp was designed to be fitted into the sub enclosure, but you've linked to a passive sub (I assume it's the captivator 2400 you're selling?). Does it, then, have binding posts?

Also, some rudimentary sums tell me it's 3 x triple 12HT speakers? Or does the "triple" mena the number of boxes rather than drivers?

Willing to split the sub out?

Freight from where?

Thanks.

In addition to what Arthur has said I will add that the Captivator 2400 Sub is an incredible speaker with output that blows you away. Very well priced considering the cost to bring one in is prohibitive. Good luck with the sale Richard. Must be hard to part with such great gear.

No, it's a seperate amp to run the passive captivator sub. You can't run the sub without an amp.

And yes it has binding posts.

Thanks for that, will give it some thought. Big $ to move that box from Qld I'd imagine, may be the killer for me.

Heaps more if you were bringing them from the USA.

Freight from US + 10% GST is probably about $550 (based on http://www.dtvforum....&hl=+captivator). Probably $400+ to freight from GC to Sydney. This difference isn't as much as I would have thought.

Nah, freight's gone up, dollar's dropped and shipping this to you would be around 200-250.

Anyway I'll probably just wait for a local buyer, no shipping, no hours spent packaging them up.

Opps fair enough, just see you were only talking about the sub, I was thinking it was the total package, apologies.

Fair enough, it's a pain. I'll probably just wait for something local as well!

No prob, my assumptions all seemed to be wrong anyway!

Cheers,

I cranked up the system on the weekend to reference level and put on the album Crash by the Dave Matthews band.. I sat in front of the speakers at about 3.8 metres and listened to #41 and Say Goodbye... It was like having the band in the room playing live.. it was just phenomenal.. so crisp and loud and yet no distortion, no hissing between songs.. just incredible.. shame they're such a PITA business to deal with.. Will be hard to part with them...

      Price: $3900 Item Condition: Used 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Morley State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, direct deposit Reason for selling: Upgraded to Revel F208 Item:  Falcon Studio 30 floorstanding speakers ( walnut finish) 
      Location: Perth
      Price:  $4300 ono  + postage
      Item Condition: 9,9- no marks, scratches , spotless
      Reason for selling: Revel F208 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash,, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
       
      but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎
       
      these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
       
      sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
       
      Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
       
      I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties
       
      boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.
       
      interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics. 
       
      Cheers dave
