    Hi! I barely can claim DIY skills but as I live < 1 hour from you (Spring Hill) I would love to attend. I am more active at other boards, but I could present a talk and photos of some of my "perpetrations" as I like to call them, the dark side of DIY if you like How do I stay advised on time, date for your shindig? Thanks.

        Hi all, I'm down here in Charlotte County. I'd love to get together with some DIY guys. Hopefully I'll have some completed speakers to demo by then. Kent

            glad to see there is some interest . i just looked at January calendar .the two weekends that look best to me are the 16-17th or 23-24th. i'm pretty much wide open so what ever weekend works best for y'all ... y'all can either reply here or my direct contacts are , e-mail - [email protected] and my cell 352-454-0717 ... i have a bit of work to do as i'm going to do this at a friends used car lot , its a good sized room but is currently used for storage and needs cleaning out ...Click image for larger version

                I will have just started classes, so no big deal on either weekend for me.

                  i wish manney would check in , this whole idea came about to show him what a couple grand can build when there is no WAF (my towers)...

                  i'm looking forward to this , just downloaded 6mb of music from a friend of mine ....

                    Re: Florida get together ....

                    OK , i've been in contact with Josh (Jbrunner) and he is good with the 16-17th and since all that have replied have said the same thing .... the 16th-17th it is ... i have not heard from mannye and i'm hoping this is good with him . he was/is wanting to bring his Outlaw RR2150 , witch i'm hoping can handle a 4ohm load ?

                    i have my Sony witch is 145x5 into 6 and a crown xls1000 pushing two 12's handling bass management ... Josh said he is bringing two sets , i have 3 and i'm hoping y'all can bring more as i would love to hear them !

                    i'm excited , this should be fun ...

                          There's a pretty good chance I'll be able to make it as well. I have a pair of Ty's Arias I can bring-
