    But... I lack even nearly the level of understanding of this subject matter that some of the others here have. If anyone is willing to be the subject coach, I'll do the grunt work.
    Perhaps you should start a new thread. I'm sure after Jeff gets done with his seminar he would have some good pointers.

      Sounds like a great idea, really. I would only suggest that it takes place during the warmer seasons, as northern Indiana winter weather doesn't bode well for long distance drivers!

        Hi Jeff,

        I've held off jumping to this thread until it was clear what you have in mind. I would like to try to attend, if I can get away for the weekend. I'll be looking for dates and location in case I can take a commercial flight. Thanks for offering to do this. As a fan of PCD I look forward to filling in the gaps in my understanding.

          it's a bit of a drive, but i would love to make it!

          Would be good to see things in practice without guessing if it's being done right!

            Jeff,
            This is a great idea, and I wish I lived closer. Google hangout would work.

            You could start a series - something akin to Kahn academy. Start with fundamentals. Work through various tools and the important details regarding their use.

            I've actually believed that this could be one of the missing links for audio DIY to a point. Check you tube- tons of people pushing woofers to xmax but few conveying design theory.

            I'd be willing to help with some post processing of video if you do...

              Need to discuss timing. I see that the Iowa gathering is in mid October, so I am assuming that if I selected any time close to that it would really interfere with the ability of a lot of midwest guys being able to make it. Is that correct? If so, when do you guys feel would be a good time frame to target? I'd like to hear from people who feel they would actually try attend if they could.

                  Would the spring time be to far out and are you planning on it being in Indiana
                  If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable, and there's always more than one way to view a situation.

                    I'd go along with this; sometime in the spring. I think November would be tough to make for me. I don't know if it's feasible, but would there be any way to tie it into InDIYana?

                      Yes, Indiana. Kokomo, actually. The InDIYana gathering is in April and I didn't want to interfere with that. Plus I was really planning to try to do this yet this year. I just forgot about Iowa. November shouldn't be scary. We don't usually get bad weather that early here. Sure, it's possible, but the risk is low.

                        2nd weekend in November (9th) works for me.

                          Why can't someone(or several people) make such a video(s) and post it on YouTube? Is it because unlike Jeff, these people don't want to share their "secrets" of crossover design? I know if I knew more about measuring drivers and crossover design, I would try to make such a video in a NY minute...
                          It's fairly easy to do a crossover with LspCAD if you have the drivers in the enclosure to measure. You can even listen to your speaker with a simulated crossover to see how it would sound before you build it. Unfortunately, LspCAD is a bit too expensive to justify the price for somebody who just wants to build a pair or two of speakers for themselves. I wish the demo version could take measurements.

                          With in box measurements you don't have to worry about the "Z" displacement or calculating phase, you just plug the measurements in to whichever program you use to design the crossover.

                          For a few dollars more, the seminar could include a "build your own mic" with the Panasonic electret capsules. The greatest thing would be if participants could actually get their mics calibrated too, I wonder if that's a possibility?

                          If enough people signed up, maybe they could pay for Jeff's hotel room and have him come to Parts Express to do it, are they near the Dayton airport?

                            I'd be OK with combining it with InDIYana, it would save me a trip. Wolf did say he wanted to help.

                              The sooner, the better, as far as I am concerned.
