Definitely interested. I can bring a submersive HP, SVS pb10-isd and depending on the timing and what will fit in my car, a submersive F2.

I can also bring a REW setup with a calibrated mic and by February, I'm hoping to have speclab working to capture waterfalls via mic.

I'm in too as long as it doesn't interfere with playoffs or SB. (Subwoofers are important, but I'm hoping for 19-0, so I don't want to miss any of those games.)

As long as Rodgers stay healthy, that might become a reality. Your defense is suspect. If a team can score with them, the Giants, they might be in some trouble. If Rodgers go down, we might be seeing a melt down like we are seeing in Indianapolis.

I don't disagree with anything you said. That's why I used the phrase, "hoping".

Back on topic, Mike, we'll get you a ride, one way or the other.

Mike - Sounds great. It will be great to hear the Submersive and possibly the F2 version. It sounds like you have better measuring equipment than we have so maybe we'll throw that in too.

Well, you could always bring an extra SubM so we could test the PAIR!!

I figure we should schedule on a Saturday as that will least impact Pro-football games.

Might actually be easier for you than for me, but it doesn't much matter... either one of us can pick him up.

adidino too. He's in North Jersey and has some Triad Platinum subs. Hudda might be up for it as well. Also, there are a few other members of our Central PA HT group that might be interested.

What's the limit on attendees?

I am interested in coming up from the DC area and attending if it is not the the weekend of 22 in Feb since I will be on travel for two weeks after that. I have a SVS PCi 20-39 with the upgraded 12.3 driver and 500 watt bash amp. I am also waiting on a Occam Audio SDX 10 ported sub with a high gloss cherry finish that should be very good looking and perform well for a smaller room.

I don't want to set a limit on people just a limit on the amount of subs that we will be testing so we can at least make sure that each sub gets a fair chance and used to the best of its ability. This seems to be the main problem I hear from reading others' threads' about GTG/sub testing. The room is 25 wide...15 deep and 8 high I believe. It is only 2500 cf tho with a stairway opening and a hallway that is small. No room treatments but do have eq. It is not a dedicated theater so if that is an issue don't say I didn't warn you. I also have two auralex grammas to test every sub with. If anything positive comes out of the whole experience it will be the sharing of knowledge within the room that day. I also plan on having it after football season before baseball starts and the playoffs for bball. Its a good time of the year to kill a day doing this. For the measurements I have a brand new laptop with REW but I use an SPL meter to take measurements so it would be awesome if someone could bring an OmniMic. Spec Lab results will be pretty cool too and I know I have wanted to learn how to use Spec Lab myself and I bet I'm not the only one.

So much for trying to sneak in to the GTG without hauling over the JL

I'd definitely like to attend and can bring one of the F113's over. Gonna make ccotenj stop by if possible to help get it in the car though!

I can also bring an OmniMic if you don't have one lined up yet.

Is there anyway we can get you to bring both. So far we have many duals and I would like to do as many sets as possible especially since so far we have x2 cht 18's, x2 mfw dual opposed and hopefully dual submersibles and caps. Add the fathoms to that and it's a wicked lineup.

I'm willing to bring both, but don't think I can get them into our mid/small size SUV at the same time. I plan on boxing them to reduce the chance of damage on the ride over. If I can work it out with Chris or someone else, we can get it done.

I'll check the dimensions of the box later today to see if I can fit them both. Will you have a chiropractor on site, or at least on speed dial. Some of us will probably need one...

When you get to the food planning, let me know - happy to contribute. I've been working on an updated 24 hour smoked pulled pork recipe for a while now and wouldn't mind some feedback from the group before BBQ contest season starts; figured I could piggyback (piggyshoulder?) on the GTG if the group was interested.

Both the prospect of dual jls as well of the pulled pork sound awesome!! Its already looking like we may have a damn nice attendee list and a very potent sub listening session.

Update - pair of passive caps ordered! They should be shipping sometime next week so plenty of time to break them in. Since I don't own a flatbed truck, I will have to narrow down a selection and decide which pair of subs to bring.

I know the CHTs fit in my car without issue but the Caps may need a bit more room. I will see if I can possibly get a van or something for the day.

Out of the standard heavy hitters, I think the only missing items would be a big ED product (A7-650 or 450), the new CHT VS subs, and the SVS Ultra. I'd REALLY like to hear an Ultra - anyone out there have one (or two!) they could bring? ,

Looks like I don't have sub that can hang, wish I had the ultra but my SVS will have to do for now.

I do have five DIY bass traps that work very well, not the highest WAF but I am able to get away with it since my wife likes movies and music. I could bring the bass traps up for the meet if this is something that sounds like it could be an interesting to try out. They are pretty big on there own, about 5 feet tall and 16 inches, but they are light so not hard to move around.

That's awesome! Would love to try that!

I would like to hear a SVS Ultra also. I might not have the legend at that time, we will see.

Any thoughts on doing a ranking system like they've done at the KC/Omaha meets or should we keep it informal and let the attendees just simply submit their subjective thoughts?

My preference would be to keep this purely subjective, or at least avoid a numerical ranking system (that would inevitably be picked apart). It seems like we will have some decent measurement capabilities, so we could post those and let them stand without commentary as objective numbers.

Keeping it to the subjective should also help keep the process moving, as in reading through the other GTG threads, one common theme is the amount of time it takes to get this done. To do the scoring fairly will probably take some time, and personally, I would like to spend as much of the GTG enjoying everyone's subs as possible - there's some great gear on the slate!

FWIW, IMHO, YMMV, etc, etc.
