So it has come to fruition! The time is nigh! This started out as a fun little trip for a couple guys to grab some excellent woofage from our buddy Nick at Stereo Integrity, and now is going to be an event not to miss! It will be taking place in fabulous Asheville NC at my house. What is on the docket? Well, enjoyment of my theater space as it stands right now, along with a nice excursion into the realm of possibilities for the new Stereo Integrity 24" subwoofers. We will have several present and I am currently talking with some of the attendees about the different orientations we want to try out with them. We are considering:
~Dual opposed ported/sealed IB
~Sealed 10-15 cuft box
~Massive 40 cuft LLT tuned to between 12-14hz. This one will likely have to replace my bar on the third row of the theater, but should be fun to see a 4x8x2 foot box with a massive driver mounted to it
Moving the thing will be tough and this one is for sure still on the drawing table. I will need to procure some more plywood to make it happen
Content will include all the favorites from several of the demo discs, along with some great tunes perhaps from Gorilla83's g2g's and my own personal stash of 6,000 tracks. There are also some (hopefully) good Basketball games taking place that evening that once our ears are done bleeding we can partake in and enjoy over some grilled burgers or steaks or whatnot. I am all ears for additional suggestions, but as it stands we will have my setup with the Danley SH50's, 8 sealed SI 18HT's, 2 JBL 2242's, and 2 RE XXX 18's in a ported IB, along with surrounds that are of the same ilk as the DIYsoundgroup's volt10's and my own personal Beyma 8" coaxial design. Jeff (coach) will be bringing along his Noesis 212's to have a little fun with as well.
I am thinking that I want to limit this thing to around 15-20 or so guys as my theater has comfortable seating for 8-9, with room made for another 3-4 easily, standing room for another couple folks, and past that, it would get a little tight. So far the tentative attendee list is:
I haven't figured out lodging yet but there is a Days Inn almost walking distance from my house that is an option, or there are other hotels a little closer into town (5-7 minute drive) that might be a little better. I will link here to those once I look at the rates and see what is the most economical for anyone needing a room. I feel like a good start would be between 9-10am on Saturday, and basically just letting the g2g play out for the rest of the day. Who knows where it will take us!
I will continually update this post with any new info, as well as the attendee list, but once again I am open to some other fun suggestions of what type of content/listening we will do during the course of the g2g. Looks to be shaping up into a great time! Let me know via the thread or PM if you are interested in also attending, and stay tuned for some fun updates!
