For those attending if your amp is rack mountable please make sure you bring your rack ears or ensure they are attached well.
The amps pictured are the 2 SA1000 for the MFW Dual Opp and the Samson for the F-20s.
We plan on mounting all of those amps on this 42U rack that is sitting in the storage area adjacent to the HT room.
Working on our music and movie track list and scoring/observation sheets right now. Will probably borrow ideas from the KC, Southern and Madeel Subwoofer tests.
There will also be drinks and food provided for lunch and dinner (breakfast for those friday night campers).
My wife declined the offer to waltz around in a bikini serving sodas--sorry!
She just told me the F20s are unacceptable so those might be up for sale but I haven't had the time to really hear them yet. If I have to get rid of them maybe IB through the storage room wall is the next idea.
We are going to keep the adult beverages out of this GTG until the very end-want to have clear heads and avoid damaging any equipment or having anyone get out of hand.
Thoughts on ear plugs? I'm not sure how that would work since we need to clearly hear the material, but I also don't want any ear damage.
As far as objective data, I would really like to get close mics of all of the subs. I'm not sure of how the KC guys did this indoor GP measurements, but I'll look into it as well....
We should also be able to track the SPL data.
Otherwise a lot of our initial questions we want to explore were more of a subjective nature.
For those attending, I have 4 theater seats and 4 bar seats that should all be great spots to sit...we can figure out a seating chart as the day gets closer.
Those 8 will be reserved for those attending all day, and then I have folding chairs for another 6 where needed.
I really want to do blind listening, but I just don't see how it is feasible with the amount of subs and things we want to do. If it was single subs it maybe would work. I don't think my room is large enough. If someone thinks of a great process let me know but I'm thinking this will be too difficult to accomplish and not sure it is needed with what we want to do.
I'll also try and have a handout of the subs in play that day, along with specs of each, demo material being played, along with the score sheets in hand.
I'll update the initial post as well with an updated list of subs.
