2016 GTG MEET Location:Plainfield Il. (Chicago Land Burbs)
Host: Eng-399 (Mike)
Date:May 22, 2016 (Sunday)
Time: 11a.m to 6:00-6:00p.m.
I'm excited to host another annual GTG meet in the Chicago land burbs. The last few meets have been alot fun and we all learned alot during that meet from each other and heard some really great sounding diy speakers and subs. The last meet we also had James a writer from Audioholics that did a bass test in my room and wrote a article about it on there website. It was fun to particapte in that and have a story about the bass in my room. We were all able to be the first to hear Matt Grant's Flex-12 sub/midbass setup and the VBSS box. Thoese were great sounding subs that put out ton of bass and everyone there that day was blown away by them and there output. It seemed like these have been a big hit since the meet I hope to have 2 in my room someday and hope this GTG turns out the same as the last few times.
What were going to do this time around is basically the same as the last few times hear some great sounding diysg speakers and subs and other commercal speakers. I'll be showing and explaining all my diy subs that I built and go through my settings on my amps. I recently just got back my new HTPC that avs member Mike Murphy built for me with 10 Tb worth of storage for backing up all my movies. MM and my self will show everyone how it works and I'll show what Kodi looks like on there. I also recently added 4 more subs nearfield bringing it up to 8 subs behind the chairs. This will be fun to demo theres a ton of tacticle impack now back there for the last row of seats.
At the GTG were also going to blow up a Infinity 1260 sub thanks to @autox320
for shipping the sub to me for this
cht has a 4K 10,000$ camera that he will video us throwing a ton of power at it blowing it up! I'll talk more about this on the 2nd post.
I've been talking to Rolf aka @spotts29
that did the REW class in my HT room 2 GTG meets ago and hes going to do a mimi basic "How to take a measurements and apply filters and also set delays on your subs" class. It should be about 45 miniutes to 1 hour long tops. I'll film this myself and post it on youtube and have the link for it on the thread afterwords. I really think if we do the basic how to mearsure and set filters on the inuke amps and how to set basic delays will help so many people and give them the general understanding how to do this. This class will start at 11-11:30 AM.
What about food and drinks?
I'll have beer, water, pop, chips, dip and other finger food. If anyone wants to bring a side or want to add some beer or pop to the mix that would be cool. I'm thinking around 12-1p.m. we can order some pizza to make it easy on us for lunch. If anyone wants to pitch in 5 dollars each for pizza that would be a big help
The purpose of this meet is for all of us to hear some great sounding speakers and subs and hang out and talk shop. I still can't believe how many Chicago Land avs guys there is! I've been talking to bounch of guys already about what they want to see and demo and it looks like were going to have a bunch of speakers and equipment to check out.
