A CC5500 is good for over 1,500w per channel at 4ohm, and I have two of them. .. plus two CC4000...

These amps also have a snr of over 110db, so they're excellent for high sensitivity speakers.

Also, with my mini 8x8, mixing the LFE channel with the mains is super easy.

It'd be nice to hear the 215 with a pair of OS or with the 2xGH and 2x OH

Depending on the timing, I may be interested. Are guests allowed to come dream even if they don't have any special equipment?

I mentioned in the other thread, but I would be interested in coming as well. If people have an idea what they would like me to bring, let me know.

lukeamdman,

 

What you thinking for a format?  Just subjective listening pleasure?  Measurements and response charts?

Last year we had mostly movie clips focusing on bass, but this year i'd like to include some high quality music clips to show off the mains.

I haven't heard any AE drivers as of yet, but they've definitely been on my radar for a future project.

What did you have in mind that you could bring?

Attached is a little teaser picture of my amp rack...which is missing a few amps still!



The construction of the room is coming along nicely. This weekend I should be done with the electrical, and drywall should begin by the end of the month!

Btw, I think it's helpful to have some of the main demo content disseminated before the event - that way we can get to learn the music so we're just listening to the speakers. Anyways, just a thought...

It's pretty firm, tough to line up a date where everyone is available.

Here's a few music tracks I picked out:

Pink Floyd - Time (SACD)
Bass Mekanik - Bass All Day
Bass Mekanik - Bass I Love You
NIN - Everyday is Exactly the Same (DVD-A)
Justice - New Lands
Justice - Parade
Trent Reznor - Carbon Prevails
Pendulum - Set Me on Fire
AWOLNATION - Sail



Here are some tracks that were highlights from another GTG out east that we'll be playing as well:

Sherlock Holmes - OST Discombobulate
Eagles Gone Country - Hotel California
Collective Soul - December
Incubus - Echo
Daft Punk - Tron Legacy Overture
Tool - Jambi
Pendulum - The Tempest
Dire Straits - What It Is
Styx - Renegade
Boz Scaggs - Thanks to You
Dream Theater - Another Day
Dream Theater - The Count of Tuscany


As for Blu-ray concerts, Dustin has something that I can't remember for the life of me, but I'm buying the new Metallica concert "Through the Never".

Picking out material isn't easy, so I'm all ears for any suggestions anyone might have!

If you really want me too. It's small potatoes compared to what's already there. Provided I can get some help loading it into my car, yeah I can.

I would love to see some jtr mains there. I am debating on upgrading to some triple 12s or 212 or 215rt. Will any of those be there?
