    I have updated the attendee list as it currently stands.
    Please let me know if you would like to attend so I can keep an accurate head count.

    Note- there is a set of terms about one of the door-prizes, please comply with these.

    I will be sending out requests for sponsors soon as I've been pretty busy this year.
    Later,
    Wolf

    Sounds cool!
    Thing is- I've not updated that list yet. I will be doing more of that this month. Feb is Door-prize scavenging month!
    Glad you can make it down here,
    Wolf

    I understand your point. My "HT" setup is strictly 2-channel using a pair of 4-way speakers I built years ago that have 10" woofers. These completely satisfy my needs.

Say we run a small pair, and then with a sub the same music set, and that is likely all we will be able to do. We can't do a labhorn or 40 Hz bass-horn like dlsbobby at Dayton DIY, as I fear our usage of the facility may be compromised.

    I haven't heard much from home audio as far as subs go. All I've heard are my Klipsch, and whatever the mainstream audio manufacturing world has to offer. Always wanted to hear Jinjuku's build using the Infinity sub... http://forums.audioholics.com/forums...nce-1260w.html

    I wonder if you can approach the hotel about the back doors to the conference room. The closers don't work too well, and the blinds suffer abuse because of this. Going in and out of the doors is pretty much a 2-person task. Plus I always feel obligated to try to keep the noise down as much as possible.

    It would also be better if we could unlock those doors during the event. Trying to keep them just blocked open was quite a hassle.

    It is nice to use those rear doors, so that we can bring in stuff from our cars.

    Thanks.
    I don't believe there is anything that can be done about that. We just have to deal with it.

    We're not setting up blind testing this year.
