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 hear you (and if we had a sub demo everyone in the hotel would hear you too :p). Perhaps a good theme for another time/place.

      FWIW and YMMV, I have absolutely no interest in or need for subwoofers, so not having a demo of some isn't a loss at all for me, but I do understand that others think differently and that's fine.

        For my music system I agree; the ER18s have no desire to play w/ a subwoofer, they sound amazing all by themselves. But, for my HT system, I think my neighbors have the right to know and hear when I'm watching intense action flicks and bombs are going off :p.

          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.

                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,

                  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.

                          Finally began veneering the enclosures. One down and one to go. Exponents will be there.

                              I'll be there, traveling with Mr. Keane again. Will not be presenting anything, however.
                              Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.
