I'm going to make a serious effort to attend.

At the moment my schedule should allow me to attend, so count me in.

I've had a few customers in the DFW area who have been wanting me to visit for calibrations and the like, so I might extend the trip a few days if warranted.

Have not nailed down a time yet, but probably starting around 11ish until as late as needed. I assume time will fly by.

I think I remember you mentioning that you have a secondary space to actually demo other equipment. That is the case, correct? I would actually love to measure your Fathom in your space. Just to see what kind of room gain you are getting. I understand it's a very solid performer for it's small form factor.

Confirmed!

I might be able to throw together a ported sub or something fun we can play with. Potentially bring a one of the SI 24's we can blow up or something!

I do have room to set up demos/equipment in my family room. The M&Ks and JL Audio are installed in my bedroom, but feel free to measure. It does do well for it's size but for the price, there are probably better options. I have had it for 10 years now and it used to be one of two in my theater before moving to Seaton F18s.

Since the question came up, +1s (etc..) are welcome, just please let me know so we can keep an accurate headcount. I'll add that info next to your user name in the confirmed attendee list. Thanks all.

Awesome!

Side note, I can bring wings or eggrolls...stuff like that if anyone is interested.

Actually, we can pretty much make anything, but here is a menu if anyone would be interested in trying some of this. Just let me know.

Menu

Here is the beer I have readily available if anything looks interesting to you guys:

Great minds think alike! I was thinking about using my outdoor turkey fryer to make large batches of wings to go with my homemade ranch and blue cheese dips. I have decent range of hot sauces and make a mean teriyaki.

That looks cool. I think for this round we are aiming for casual. There is only so many weeks from now until the event. It would be nice to continue to meet as a group and I think this could be a great venue for the type of event you are proposing.
