So it looks like a summer GTG isn't going to happen, but I would be up for a fall GTG. Maybe in October or November. If we concentrate on speakers this time I know we could have the following for sure:

DIY Sound Group 1099's
PSA 210 Towers
JTR 212 HTR's
JTR 215 RT's

I think Samps built a DIY Soundgroup speaker also.

Any other speakers that people want to bring would be welcome too. We would just need to cut back a playlist the more speakers we have.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

I'm in. I have 5 different fusion 8 models. The dual 8 towers being the most relevant to this discussion.

Thanks John.

I am thinking sometime at the beginning of November would work for me.

Just looked at the calendar and it looks like Saturday 11/5 or Saturday 11/19 works best for me.

I will likely put up another poll next month to see what works best but also fell free to comment here too.

Long time reader, rarely post. Just bought built a new house and will be venturing into this area in the next few years. Glad there are people in the Pittsburgh area to share the experience with (I'm in the South Hills)

Congrats!

I definitely don't want to wait that long into the summer. May/June most likely.

Rogue One has reference quality image for digital photography (Arri Alexa 65). Private message me if anyone is interested in a screening.

RS600 (w/ChadB calibration)+Stewart ST100+Black velvet = AMAZING

I am free most weekends now other than 4th of July week(vacation). I know you have the the pinnacle of subwoofer capability in your setup, but I'd be willing to bring along my HST-18/PA460 combo. I'd be interested to see how the combo fares compared to just the HST which just couldn't cut the mustard in your room with the little bit of power I was pushing(along with the huge boost we put on it )

That time frame works for me. I'm free after 4th of July week and until late August.

7/15 or 7/29 would work for me.

Hopefully others respond.

This could even be a much smaller scale than the last time.

I would like it if @ahblaza could bring the 1099's and @Samps a 615LX (if he built them - haven't been paying attention).

I didn't build the 615s. Maybe next year. I'm still working on subs.

I'm in Myrtle 7/15. 7/29 should be ok.

Ok, lets shoot for 7/29.

This doesn't have to be as big an event as the last one. Even if we just get 5-7 people we will still do it.

If there would be any interest, here are the speakers I could bring:

Hsu HB1Mk2....bookshelf speakers with horn loaded tweeter and 6.5" woofer. I'm sure they'll be underwhelming considering what you have in the room.
I have a pair of Dayton B652's if anyone wants to laugh at what a $20 PAIR of speakers sound like.
If I get around to it, I'll have my DIYSG Quarks built.
