    My car is gonna hate me. 200lbs of amplifier, plus speakers...

    And as if Ryan would really EVER worry about there being "enough talk" if I'm around...
    Will update tonight. There's a great variety of stuff stacking up to be shown off!!

      Just stirring the pot and get some excitement going. :D


      I'm glad I had the count wrong. I think I only had two projects on my count for Wolf, but he's bringing what, 10?

      13 was too few. 22 projects sounds like a great number.



      Oh and Chris, you don't have to bring 200# of amplifier. ;)

      I need to start thinking about my music selection...

        I'll personally have 4;
        *Destinations
        *Glucinium Amor
        *Sophomores
        *Trichotomy
        ...and a c/o-me; Mark65's 'Deullati'.

        I'm not bringing the Microtonnes, just in case anyone was wondering.

          300?

          The XPA-1's are about 90lbs each. Chip-amp should be there. I may leave the rest.

          Really, the weight isn't more than having the car full of people, unless they all happened to be me kind of people.

            Wolf - I'll be making some updates tonight, so I will tidy up your section on the Exhibitors page as well.

            Really looking forward to hearing the Destinations -- The XO has what....like 20 elements? And this will be my first time hearing the Sophomores as well.

              It's 16 parts, 7 of which are resistors. The Attitudes had more parts....:D

                oh good. I was feeling like I might need to add the impedance compensation into the Ansonica to compete! But maybe not, after all. It's only a 2.5-way though... 13 components as it stands. 3 of that is resistors. Series crossover, too! Or do we count the drivers as parts?

                  Normally, Iowa and others count Drivers + Xovers for cost in competition. Dayton is Drivers only. It's also regular pricing and as you have them built.

                  "Minimalism with respect to necessity" is how I use parts. I have heard other schools of thought "compensate everything first, and then xover".

                  I'm sure we'll have things to talk about, Chris!

                    Revised Attendee/Exhibitor list

                    Added more LINKS, for out-of-town guests.

                    3 weeks away!! If you plan to attend, please post here so we can get an accurate head count.

                    There are a few interested members for a Friday night get-together. If we can solidify that ahead of time, that would be great. There are a couple places within walking distance of the Hyatt as well as the Hyatt Bar/Restaurant.

                    If anybody spots dead/broken links on the website, please hit me up. Also, additions and modifications can go thru me.

                    :D:D

                      So, how many of you are completely ready for showing? Hands please. *One, two, three, four....* Yep that's just about everyone.


                      Now, how many of you aren't? Ahhhhh, we see a hand from the man from Central Wisconsin.


                      For what it's worth guys I may not make it. Sorry.

                          Sorry to hear that Marty. Did you have something else come up or are you just bailing on us because your speakers aren't ready :p

                          Mine are ready for listening, not so much for showing (bare MDF and plywood) :o

                                Not ready - nowhere near ready. I haven't even fired 'em up yet. I've made decent progress on the cabs, but as far as them producing sound, well that's still a ways off. I'm going to keep plugging away.
