    The orignal $200 budget was to make it an actual challange. Many designers here can do quite a bit when you break the $200 ceiling. It was always suppose to be a challange, tough.... once you start getting the Iron Driver itself past a$20 driver, there are many options to choose from that are way too easy to work with. David Crewe's Saffrons still blow my mind when I think about what he did with sucj a small budget....

    Just $0.02 It is nice to see this alive in any form. It was A LOT of fun.

    Ship-ins allowed?

    Edit: The market changes were due mostly to copper. Dayton's new inductors, as well as other companies, are offering soultions that have reflect the settled prices. Just my last argument to being the real challange back ;)

    The eclipse 5-1/4" or the new diysg 5" woofer might be good options.

    I'd like to add that Dakota DIY is normally in June around that time frame.

    Later,

    Hey guys, I've been talking with mattsk8 and Mark at Meniscus about doing an Iron Driver style event in Grand Rapids since the one in NY isn't happening anymore. I don't have all the details on how everything will run yet but it will be done as a blind listening competition much like the one in NY.

    I guess the first thing to hash out will be the budget and then we'll pick a driver. Just for reference, the point of the original Iron Driver was to pick a cheap driver and then show what you can do with in on a limited budget. The budget was set at $225 and you must include crossover costs in the total so it can make things a bit tight. There has been a lot of discussion in the past about changing the budget to accommodate price increases in the market. Given that this is a new event and doesn't need to run the same, we could open it up to a higher budget and slightly more expensive drivers.

    Let me know what you think. I've got 4 options in the poll. Remember, this includes crossover components. I'll keep this open until Christmas so we can get started on driver selection.

    Also, if you have ideas for the drivers, go ahead and post them here. I will start a new thread after this poll for the drivers.
Working...
