      that could work out. my mom works for enterprise. She said I get a 50% family discount! I havent decided if I am going to rent a van or just use my truck. but either way I could stop over.

      I was going to build a cradle for my speaks and lay them on their back. would this work for you? how big are your speakers?

        14x24x50 + spikes. They could lie on their sides, or on top of 2x4's on the back (would clear the speaker terminals). Plain cargo van from Ace was ~$205 for Friday > Sunday, that was just a quick check I did to get a handle on price range. I don't think I get a work discount on cars, I should check.

        The real problem with any of these is getting them in/out of the vehicle. A van tends to be a little easier due to the lower floor.

        It's sure to be a freak snowstorm too, or at least heavy downpour...

        whee.

          WOW those will make mine look small:p Ill find out monday how much it will coast for the rental. that will be the deciding factor. I have a tonneau cover so the elements shouldn't be an issue. I would really like to transport them standing up though thats why i'm looking int the van.

          if you'd like you can pm me. we can figure something out?

              I have to check with Matt on the 2 ohm stability, but I think they are.

                Yes- 13/14 of April.

                  Hey Wolf, noticed I wasn't on the attendee or maybe list. I'll probably have 2-3 projects to bring along.

                    Hey Ben,

                    I'm planning to have two brand new speakers to show. One will be a very special transient perfect two-way, and the other all brand new XBL drivers in an MTM.

                    Of course, I could bring the TC sub if you need one, and the Continuums if anyone still wants to hear them by now.

                    I might even be able to have one of the new passive radiator subs together by then, but my priority is completing the other two sets.

                    As usual, I will be rolling on Saturday morning. I'll shoot for a fairly early arrival.
