Do any of you know if he is on AVS or has ever been to a get together? I'd love to chat with him and have him be part of our so cal home theater scene, if he isnt' already.

Hmm, well his name is apparently Frank - I don't recall meeting a Frank at our GTGs, but maybe someone else who goes back further with the group?

Lone Survivor showing is this coming Saturday. Its time to decide on a time for show. What do you guys thinks about 1:30PM? I'm open to suggestions. I thought this would be a good time in case anybody wanted to hang out before or after the show.

More people are welcome but we would need to add a second show maybe around 4pm. Let me know what you guys think. We still have plenty of time to sort it all out.

I'm good with 1:30. but anytime after that works for me as well.

I'm not sure if i will watch the entire movie, since i already saw it, but id still like to watch some of it, so i can hear the new beast that you and duc built.

Aside from watching the movie though, im just really looking forward to seeing everybody.

ps - should i bring anything...food, drinks,etc?

Sure, maybe bring some snacks or drinks. I think we can just order some pizza as soon as we get hungry.

Fookoo,

GOOD FIND!

I run these in my master bedroom 5.1 setup and they do a pretty damn good job. At this price they are hard to resist.

SubMaximus

With Sanjay, I was able to see and feel the awesome SubMaximus in near field placement thanks to asarose247 who was a very gracious host. Aside from SubMaximus, Garden Grove has Krikorian's new Dolby Atmos installation with its Christie projection that would certainly contend for one of the best Dolby Atmos theater installations in Southern California.

I thought the sound was ok nothing special could have been the mix. The picture though was not even close to what's available at Burbank or many other cinemas.

fookoo, has your vision returned to normal? Are you missing any limbs? You have now seen first hand, that the submaximus, is no joke! : )

Are you sure that you have been out to Garden Grove's Krikorian Dolby Atmos theater? The speaker configuration and set up is different from any other Dolby Atmos theater that I have been in. You can get the details from Sanjay on Saturday. If so, then you need to have your hearing checked. Wish I could be at your GTG tomorrow.

Yes Carl it was the Garden Grove theater. We can't compare because we saw 2 different movies. If we saw the same movie then we could argue.

My coworkers bailed out and I'm recovering from pneumonia, so I won't be able to make it either. I might be able to stop by later in the evening if I'm feeling better by then. Sorry for the late notice Ivan. I was hoping to feel better by today.

Sorry to hear that you're sick. Don't worry and try to recover. You can come by at anytime or any other day you wish. Get some rest. Thanks and no need for apologies.

By the way, the Garden Grove Atmos theater you are referring to - It's the Buena Park theater.
