    Sounds good to me too. As a side benefit stain probably dries faster in May

    My open baffle build has been done any day now for the last 10 months.

          Been wanting to come for a few years now. Been a closet newb builder for at least as many years. Will have to see if I can make it.

            I have gone the last two years without a build of my own. These events are fun and you get to see and listen to a lot of good speakers and talk to a lot of smart people. If COVID19 lets up so that it can take place, I'd recommend going, it is a good time.

            Is there an echo in here? This bot seems to repeat post #4 in a thread.

            Hello All,

            I am curious about these DIY events. I see there is a goal or theme, but is something like this good for a newbe trying to learn? I have often wanted to meet other like minded individuals and SEE what I am reading about on these forums. Having never attended an event like this I just don't know if is more theme focused and structured and less learning focused. Simply put..........I would like to attend but not having something to contribute........I don't want to "be in the way." My goal in attending one of these events would be to learn more about the "sound experience". Connecting the dots between figuring out the crossover and final listening tests. Learning what some of the terms regularly used to describe sound like "fatiguing", "narrow / broad sound stage", "flat response", "dips in response". In other words, I have never been in a room and had the opportunity to interact with other builders and designers to learn the "experience" and tie it to the lingo........so then I can stand in front of other speakers and understand what I am hearing as I am playing with new designs or evaluating old ones. I hope this makes sense.

            Cheers,

            David

              These are great events to attend even without bringing anything, you will learn a lot and likely be motivated to try to build something for the next year's event.

            Yes this is a good event for a new person to attend and not bring a project. This event is less formal and more social where the talking can even overshadow the listening. It will be up to you how much you might learn. I use to take tons of notes so I could remember what I liked, now I take a few and enjoy the people and their creativity addressing the theme.

              Attend! You’ll learn a lot and meet some great people too. If possible, attend Friday night too. You’ll hear a lot of non-themed speakers and more discussions. Saturday is more focused in order to get through all the themed entries. But it’s a good comparison of speaker differences that are built under the same constraints. Here’s a chart that attempts to connect frequency response characteristics with common speaker terms.

                    I will echo what the others have said. InDIYana is a great event for those just getting into the hobby or the simply curious. Its a place to hear established designs but also ask questions of some of the best designers in the DIY community. When you are ready to display your own work, those designers will critique it and give you honest feedback in a tactful manner.

                    As far as the theme, there is never a requirement for anyone to participate. But it is an opportunity to think outside the box and use creativity to push the limits of one's skills.

                    I encourage you to attend. There is no fee, great camaderie, and just a fantastic opportunity.

                      I'll never forget my first DIY event. I walked in and the speakers playing had about $40 in drivers per side, and were 3-ways to boot. I was blown away at how great they sounded.

                      It will stick with you...

                        Here's a dropbox link to it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8smyhs8038...stics.JPG?dl=0

                        And here's another one that shows the frequency range for different instruments and vocals. Helpful for determining where to prioritize your efforts:
