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!

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: $2500 Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available Suburb or Town: KEYSBOROUGH 3173 State: Victoria Payment Method: EFT, Paypal, cash on pickup Reason for selling: Too many speakers Further information: 
      Bought the enclosures, with brand new Dynaudio Accent 3 drivers from Tom at Speakerbits a while back.
      The active amps were faulty, so new custom bases were designed for these speakers with bass reflex ports.
      Tom had the correct crossover circuits for these, and I did the custom build.
      Amaaaazing sounding speakers with massive fast bass for bass reflex design. Midrange is superb. Imaging with huge sound stage.
      Cannot fault these, but really too big for my 3m x 4m mancave. They need more room to breathe. Thus the sale.
      Some ageing on the cabinets, and minor marks, but very presentable. Weigh in at about 35 Kgs each.
      Crossovers are built into separate base cavities of the speakers, and are accessed by removing base plinths.
      They have high quality components. Jantzen coils and caps with Obbligato caps on tweeter/mid section.
      Sizes: 280W x 350D x 1170H. Plinths are larger. These are, as originally no grilles design.

      Price: $1600 Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: KEYSBOROUGH 3173 State: Victoria Payment Method: EFT, Paypal, cash on pickup Reason for selling: Too much gear. Further information: 
      I recently bought this amp here on SNA as a curiosity buy.
      I must say it is an impressive sounding, fantastic amp, but still prefer my Allnic T-2000 valve amp.
      Amazing sound stage and detail. Has all packaging so postage would not be an issue.
      Works perfect as it should.

      Price: $1150 Item Condition: Used, 9/10, no visible damage Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: Cash, credit card, EFT, paypal Reason for selling: upgrading Further information:  I bought a few years to use as a headphone amp. I didn't really use it as such, and primarily used it as a USB DAC feeding my Marantz amp. Im looking to sell this and get an amp with an integrated dac. I did use the headphone amp to drive my HD700s a few times, and it was wonderful.
       
      Local pickup preferred, but I have the original box so can ship.
       
      Comes with remote, and other accessories that were in the box - I never used any.

      Price: $1450 Item Condition: Used, light scuffs on the top, but cosmetically great otherwise. Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: Paypal, Cash, bank transfer (can also accept credit card via my business) Reason for selling: Upgrading Further information:  I'm planning to purchase something with an integrated DAC to simplify my system and neaten everything up. I bought this new in 2015, its in great condition and sounds great. I remember when I first plugged my speakers into this as opposed to my Marantz AV receiver how much of a difference it made! Has an integrated phono stage which is brilliant too. Overall a very solid setup that is sure to please.
       
      Local buyers preferred, however I do have the original box

      Price: $2000 Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Tasmania State: Tasmania Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash Reason for selling: NLR Genuine Arper Catifa 70 Beige Leather Lounge


      https://stylecraft.com.au/product/catifa-70-soft-lounge


      These start at $6000 in fabric and go up to around $6500 with this grade of leather, armrests and swivel base (they also have the auto return to center 360-degree swivel base - a very nice smooth action)


      I have removed the arms and book/drink rest, but they are included and attach easily again from underneath.


      I have tried several chairs and they are amazing, but I have now upgraded to a matched pair in a different model. Check my other listing for Black 60 series.
