    I usually go every other year. Going this year only because of a particular speaker and see a friend.

    yes, makes sense, else you are driving/ staying away consecutive weekends, which is hard.

    We are going to move this to May to de-conflict with Dakota

    Sounds like fun, $250 per pair? Why not just do a quick measurement while each speaker is set up, I'm sure
    nobody would be opposed of 1 minute of sweeps or whatever, (as long as the measurements are not seen
    by the judges)

    xmax,

    The rules are basically we come to a conclusion on what the "iron driver" will be. Everyone must use that driver in their design in some way. Total cost of the build, including crossover parts, must not exceed $250 regular price. Buyout drivers aren't allowed. If you buy an item on sale, you must use the regular price for it. Shipping costs are not included in the total cost. Other than that, there are no real limitations on what you can build. At the NY events in the past it was limited to something that would fit on a 24" speaker stand so that there wasn't an unfair advantage for people that live closer and can build big cabinets. I'm not sure if we are are going to mandate that this time or not.

    Judging is blind and only the people setting up the speakers know what is what. They were not included in the past for the scoring and I believe we would keep it that way. I've still got to work out with Mark if we are going to be doing measurements like they did in NY or if it will just be a blind competition.

    I'd really like to participate, but May probably wouldn't work for me. As for drivers, I suppose the SB 5" ceramic is too costly. What about their poly cone 5"? I'd like to give that a try (though I'd probably re-purpose it as a midrange after the event). Dayton PM180 might be fun, but again too costly.

    I'd be interest in something different like a small 2 or 3 inch driver that could be used as a tweeter or mid. The TC9FD18 would be an example, but it's been used to death.

    Yeah, I mean I'm not set one way or another. I know they get used a lot, but on the other hand, none of the Iron Driver events used Dayton drivers to my knowledge.
    Lets not break the tradition then.
