    I'm working on the Tandems project, but it is looking slimmer and slimmer that they will be attending with me.

      Yeah, but it really wouldn't be a proper road trip to Western Ohio without some funky fumes rolling around the chariot! I equate poly fumes with rental-car air freshener. You're right though, I may do a lacquer finish which should be cured in time to not smell.

      Sorry to hear that. I've said it before... I hate it when work gets in the way of my hobby.

        I am not sure if I can make it this time.... But I don't have a project either. The only finished one is the penguins, and it is just above the 200$ mark, so it will be competing with scans, satori's, 3way floor standers, floor standing scans in TLs....

        Is there a registration deadline? Haven't registered yet

            I finally got the writeup done and submitted for the SevenSixTwo Coaxes. They're in the over $200 category. Now to just wrap up the SuperBees and get that writeup done.

              I'm waiting to hear back from management about entering my new project into the Dayton Audio category. Obviously I can't win anything, since I'm an employee, but I'd still like to show them off. I'm building them with a hope that the Bare Minimum category holds on for InDIYana.

              Calling them the Exclamations. PT2C and RS125. If it follows the modelling, it should be plus/minus 5 db from 80-20k, which I'd gladly take given the restrictions for the category.

              Cheers all

                Just so you know, the Exclamations was a name Curt Campbell used for one of his designs.

                  Where is the under $50.00 category? I am sure my DML sat/sub panels would win. LOL

                    Mine will look like exclamation points due to the drivers used, thus why I chose the name, but I can always call them something else.

                              Thanks for posting, Tom. Just listened to the <200 selections. I agree; very bassy. My Fb is 40Hz, maybe I should consider a high pass filter on my woofer.

                                Last weekend to prep! Looking through the registered names in the open unlimited category it appears I've got some tough competition, particularly for a relatively low power and small cone area active 2.1 system.

                                I did a test with the system out in the open in my living room, still much smaller than the room they'll be in. They sounded good, though the bass was a bit weaker than I like without the smaller room and corner load position the sub normally lives in. Worst case for me will be if they run into clipping to get the SPL required, that Lindsey Stirling track is going to beat them up good.

                                Hoping to clean up the Duratex on the woofer this weekend and have them ready to roll! Looking forward to meeting everyone!
