I'm 90% sure I'd attend. Used to live in Azle, so Fort Worth would have been easy then, but now I'm in Garland, a bit of a trek but if I am free I will attend.

I am good for a GTG as well. I was also thinking about eventually hosting a small one myself (theater only sits 5 with little entertaining space for overflow) but my theater is not done yet. A couple of thoughts.
  • Meet up at CEDIA - CEDIA Expo 2016 is about 6 weeks away. May be a good time/place to get to meet fellow AVSers without having to 1st meet in someone's home. Outside of parking, this event is free and a ton of fun.
  • Parade of Theaters - Much like Parade of homes but focus on theaters, this could be an opportunity to "shorten" the visit at an individual's home and perhaps gain greater acceptance for folks to open their theaters to others for a short duration. The homes would need to be in close proximity, but it also opens the door to eat at a restaurant versus someone needing to feed a group as well. Once again, to perhaps gain greater participation from hosts in this area.

These both sound like good ideas. I wanted to attend CEDIA last year but work just did not allow for it, registered and everything. There are a lot of good places to meet not far from the convention center that would work great for an informal meetup to get to know names and faces.

Based on this thread, there doesn't seem to be any seriously dedicated theaters like the one you're building.
I'm not complaining, but this G2G would seem to be one that mainly focuses on listening to new speakers, standard DIY subs, talking shop, and just hanging out and having a good time with fellow enthusiasts. I'm not a serious type of person, so those things would be something I would be looking forward to.

I also don't think there is a large number of those theaters in close proximity to each other, so it's going to take the weekend and a little gas money, or individuals bringing their personal speakers to a single house to play with. I'm not opposed to either one, but the "Parade" idea might come in under-par.

Unfortunately, no. I need to get some steam going into completing my theater and I would be willing to host something.

You're in Lake Dallas now?! I'm still down for a GTG as well. I know @bgtighe23 would come up from Houston.

1899's, Pure 10's, HTM-12's, and I'll have a couple submaximus horns built soon.

I would definitely drive up.
How's the theater coming along popalock? Did you just move back and need some time to get things situated?

And Patzig, better get on those horns. If we have the G2G before September and you finish building at least two submaximuses, I'll bring up a pair of UM-18s to drop in.

No theater for me yet! Most of my stuff is in storage and I am living in a small apartment for the time being. I'm own a bar in Dallas with a colleage of mine and we are in the process of opening up another concept here in the next few months.

The housing market up here in the big D has gotten a bit out of hand... I mean, everything was very reasonable 10 years ago. Seems like everything has doubled and more since that time. I don't want to pay DC prices to live in Dallas at this point in time.

Seems like a lot of my equipment will probably be going into the next bar! So at least I get to build some enclosures again soon!
