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!

How many channels is the clone amp, Rich? and how many total kw. Can we use them for speakers and not just for the subs?

Cheers,

Kevin

Edit - Never mind, found it ;)..................definetly an impressive piece of kit! 2 channels and 7000w into 2ohm load, fk me dead! lol. No wonder people who have been running IB subs use this amp LOL!. Im so freaking tempted to get it for the price and run it for my rears lol.

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: $400 Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Secret Harbour State: Western Australia Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
       
      A great starter Tube Integrated Amplifier or perfect for an office/Second system setup.
      Alot of Amplifier for the money
      Price is $400 with standard tube or $550 with Siemens CCA tube. The Siemens CCA tube is highly regarded, expensive and rare.
      The Siemens tube was bought as NOS and has done about 50 hours.
      The Magnat MA400 has done about 100 hours and was used to play music in our dining/kitchen area connected to Revel 870 ceiling speakers. 
      It is in very good condition and looks really nice in a brushed black aluminium look and I nice front window for tube viewing.
      It has a phono section which I know nothing about as I  have not spun a record since I was a kid.
      It has tone control for bass and treble and can be adjusted from the remote control.
      I have all the original packaging so can ship if required.
      32 watts @ 8 ohms and 40 watts @ 4 ohms.
      I just connected it up to my Bryston Mini T 3 way 86db 4 ohm standmount speakers and it sounds really nice, obviously not driven loud.
       
      Can demo for locals.

      Repost: with price drop.
       
      Selling for $1200 each which is an excellent deal as these retail for $2599 each.
       
      They are excellent amplifiers that I have been very happy with since purchasing new maybe 2 years ago. Kept all the original packaging & paperwork including trigger cables that remain unused.
       
      I have 3 available as I was using them for my 3 front speakers including centre channel. 
      The brightness of the orange tube window on the front of the amp is completely adjustable & can be switched off.
       
      Information below regarding the Hybrid design. 
       
      A completely new combination amplifier was developed for the SP-T700, exploiting the respective advantages of tubes and transistors in an innovative manner, combining them to create a harmonious whole. The SP-T700 is characterised by excellent reproduction features that remain constant over the entire frequency and load range and it has a superior power reserve.
      The tubes are 100% selected frame grid tubes from the military sector. They are designed for a lifetime of 10,000 hours.
      The best of two worlds: Subtle reproduction of voices and acoustic instruments, plus the strength and punch of a huge rock stage – the SP-T700 is an exceptional power amplifier that meets such contradictory requirements with elegant ease. This is only possible due to the latest tube technology, combined with a transistor end stage. The outcome: Inspiring sound, plus strength and comprehensive speaker control.
       ............................................................................................

      Chartered Engineer Frank Blöhbaum (Developer) about the SP-T700:

      A globally unique and completely newly developed tube amplifier works in combination with a transistor output stage inside the SP-T700 power amplifier. The tube input stage receives the music signals and amplifies them with the highes purity and clarity. The transistor power amplifier controlled by the tube stage delivers „only“ the required corrent to control even critical loudspeakers with ease.
      The circuit principle of the tube amplifier used here - a directly coupled transconductance amplifier with highly constant current and voltage conditions for the amplifier tube – leads to a very high voltage amplification with a high linearity and very broad band width. A highly linear driver stage, created using the frame grid pentode 6SCH9P, ensures easy controlling of the transistor buffer.
            In order to fully exploit the advantages of the novel amplifier concept in the SP-T700, only the best was used for the power supply unit as well: A 6Z4 tube works as a rectifier for the tube stage. The voltage feed is electronically controlled and sieved afterwards. The transistor buffer is based on a high-performance power supply unit, comprising an over-dimensioned torodial transformer and switching-stable electrolytic capacitors.
       ............................................................................................
