**** UPDATE HERE....PLEASE READ ****

Ok Guys,

after a couple of months of delay, the time has come for the promised Field trip to the JL facilities in Pembroke Pines, Florida. As mentioned before, we are gonna plan to get several AVS members to visit the facility, see the production lines, meet the engineers, check out the products (including the Fathom and Gotham lines), have lunch with Carl, Manville, and many of the engineering staff.

I've talked to Carl Kennedy and Manville, and here are some of the stipulations:

* The trip will have to happen in April, so that gives us about a month to coordinate who is going. The tentative dates can be:
- Friday April 13th
- Friday April 20th

* the visit needs to be done during the week unfortunately, which means those attending will have to take a day off. A Friday seems to be the logical choice, as that may give those traveling from the west, center, and north florida (as well as out of state ) can make a weekend out of it.

* Carl said they can accommodate up to a couple of dozen people, so we are going to shoot for 20 members, with a max of 24.

* This is a learning field trip, so bring as many questions, and as technical, as you can.


Those interested, please reply with your confirmation as follows:
************
Name and AVS username
Location origin
Preffered date
Confirmation of attendance (whether 100% sure or not)
************

Once we get the tally, and date, we will plan and organize a meeting location and time, and what the agenda will be.


A big thanks to all the kind individuals at JL Audio for wanting to participate in showing members of the AVSforum the ins and outs of a production facility of high-end high quality Audio products. Particular thanks to Manville Smith and Carl Kennedy for helping and assisting with this effort.

Will part of the field trip include auditioning the F113s in their demo room? If so, is their demo room properly treated to show off what the F113s can do?

I hope JL can handle any honest criticisms we will bring up... Between you, Chuck, and I; we sure know good sounding bass!

Damn, you got it stickied too.

I can't attend, but wish I was visiting my friends in Weston Fl so I could tag along.

Westin is a really nice place to live as I've visited there quite a few times. You guys are basking in the sunshine while we here in the northeast got slammed today with about 10 inches of snow!! Enjoy the tour guys!!!

sounds good. I'm free both days like I said before.

Just be sure to give us the exact date atleast two weeks ahead please.

Also, this has all been confirmed with JL, right? We're not just going to show up there and request a tour, lol!

LOL...dont worry, Carl Kennedy and Manville Smith are helping to organize this.

that would be funny though, to show up at the JL parking lot without their knowledge, and tell security: "hi, we are from AVS and we are here to check out the facility"

Sweet, just need the date confirmed so I can put it on the calendar here at work. I'm very excited! I had thought about calling them on my own to see if I could get a tour since they are so local.

When I found out where they were I called and inquired about a tour and was told "We don't do that" in a nice way. A single person tour is different than what we will be doing and Hats Off to JL for allowing it. I am really looking forward to it as well. Let's get a date firmed up and we are there!!!!!!!!!!

Suggestion: When it gets closer it would make sense to PM each other our cellphone numbers.

Just encase.
