    AV NIRVANA Announces Incredible JTR Speakers Captivator 118HT Subwoofer Giveaway Contest!

    [​IMG] AV NIRVANA is thrilled to partner with JTR Speakers for an exciting Giveaway Promotion Announcement! Over the next three months, AV NIRVANA members can enter to win one of the industry’s elite subwoofer models: JTR’s Captivator 118HT. There are ways for members to achieve more than one entry into this contest, so read on!

    JTR Speakers is widely recognized for its audiophile grade speakers and subwoofers, all of which are handcrafted with high quality materials right here in the USA. The company has given us one of it’s Captivator 118HT subwoofers to review, and once the review is finished the sub will find its way into the home of one lucky AV NIRVANA member. This is an incredible opportunity to land truly impactful subwoofer performance in your home!

    The Captivator 118HT is an elegant heavy hitter, weighing in at a whopping 129-pounds and standing nearly three feet tall (30” H x 20” W x 22.5” D). It utilizes a bass reflex design paired with a custom 18-inch driver and a DSP optimized 700 Watt amplifier for bone rattling performance capable of dipping below 17Hz in a typical room. Shunning standard MDF, the Captivator 118HT’s heavily braced cabinet is constructed with 18mm 13-ply Baltic Birch plywood. It also features a magnetically attached grill, and an amp plate with multiple controls (Gain, LF Adjust, Crossover, Delay), a 12 volt trigger, RCA and XLR connections, and an On/Auto/Off power selector.

      Yes... we're kicking off the big product Giveaway in a BIG way! JTR Speakers makes incredible sounding, high performance, gear. And the fact that it's handcrafted with care is icing on the cake! No doubt about it. And we're super happy they've decided to partner with us for this promotion. And you're right, Jeff, someone is going to have one awesome subwoofer rolling into their home.

      This particular sub was tested and boxed right after AXPONA! It will go through a break-in and review, so it will be minty fresh and ready to go into immediate use! :T

      JTR makes incredible speakers! I like that they don't require a lot of power to give you a true theater experience.

      Just wanted to highlight the entry by Filtor1 (first entry on the contest Entry Thread)... well done. Exactly what we're looking for.

      Filtor1, hope you stick around and become an active member on AV NIRVANA! We have a DIY section on the forum that's just begging for folks such as yourself to come post projects in progress and find inspiration to push them to completion ;-)

      I had the opportunity to evaluate the previous version of the 118HT, and that was a very impressive subwoofer. I know it has undergone some substantial updates since then so I'm intrigued to see what the review says about this version.

      Impressive sub! I hope this one has my name on it.
      18mm of Birchwood rather than MDF, huh? Makes you wonder if the speaker's namesake is the wood thickness or the driver diameter.

      I'd like to hear the knuckle wrap test on this sub. It must be like knocking on a brick!

      Yep... this is a massively built sub and Dennis has already confirmed it's ability to do sub duties. You don't see other forums giving away nice products like this in exchange for advertising... they want the money honey!

      I think this a fantastic set of speakers and subwoofer. I would not hesitate to use them as monitors in my
      recording studio. I would love to have the sub as bass is so hard to get right in the mix. Either to much or not enough when translating to other media. A balance set of monitors with a sub set up right will tell me what works in the real world. John

      I will get over to Dennis's house next week for a listen. I can predict it will be awesome, based on what I have heard from JTR at AXPONA and RMAF shows.
