I think I may have to install a few 100 amp circuits for this GTG......

I'm starting to get a little concerned.... Good thing I have a handful of Fire Extinguishers loaded up at work.... This may qualify me to bring a couple home...

Man, this sounds sweet, might be a little stretch for me though.

The list of possible gear is staggering! Hell I'll sit outside and still be able to hear this GTG just fine!

Do you have to bring a sub to attend? I am looking at building my first sub, and being able to come to something like this to listen to all of these different subs would be fantastic.

Well, you know you can count me in, warpdrv. I can bring my Behringer EP2500 if you'd like.

Hard to believe Winnipeg is closer than the Nip...

Hey, if anyone's going through the Topeka area and has an open seat, I don't have a sub to bring (though I might if I got motivated, but it's just a 4ft sealed SDX-15), but I do have a CE4000 I could bring...although that doesn't quite muscle up to some of those big dog amps listed.

John

Whoo, I would like to see those TD18H's! They have the new 2.5" coil right?

If everyone is still on board with the set date of FEB. 28th, I think we'll stick with that as the growing amount of people slated for said event seems very promising.....

Chime in if any of the main participants have any objections, I am somewhat flexible, I'll have to make arrangements for my business for which ever weekend.

Patrick,

I'm fine with the 28th and planning on attending. Maybe you can make a list of who is planning on attending and if they are bringing stuff, what it is?

Hey J.... So I should mark you down in the Gear brought.... food...

Update
Ricci and I have been conversing over PM, and he's for sure coming and going to bring the XXX and the LMS.... Kyle Lee states they LMS should easily be a drop in for one of the Mal-X boxes I have, so thats how we will play that one...

And I am going to whip up another 24" cube sealed (a touch beefier) for the XXX so we have that available for the shootout, so he doesn't have to lug his disghusting looking test box up here.... It will then be donated to Ricci for his own personal use after the shootout - minus expenses... As if he hasn't gotten enough freebies

All in the name of testing...

Dang...Dissin on my sloppy box...that ain't cool man.

Warp have you heard the PB13 Ultra and Rhythmik before? I haven't heard either of them or a JL fathom yet, so I'm looking forward to it. Not to mention John's AE stuff . and I get to check out a Maelstrom X.

If you are interested I can bring along a Dayton WT3 and slap it on your drivers for fun? It's a pretty quick affair really.

Hahahaha Gotta poke a bit of fun at ya..... That thing is built like a tank.... its funny really....

Bring the WT3, I got a couple of raw drivers around to use it on... I was thinking about buyin one...

I have never heard either the Ultra13 or the Rythmik either, I also am looking forward to it... The Fathom F112 is a great little sub, now just running it alone in my bedroom, for music and movies... its perfect for output and clarity, it just never seems to complain.

This post makes me want to attend to really listen to some subs. I have VERY little sub. experience and could definitely learn something! How would you compare your old SVS setup to the JL to the DIY? I am looking for that balance you speak of in terms of output and clarity!

Well Wes, get your butt over here on the 28th, if you want to bring you Dyn sub your welcome, there will be some major players here and plenty of people to discuss it over with....

In comparison, the JL is extremely articulate, you can easily sense the subtle nuances in the changes of freq, it provides the brutal attack when called upon and subsides instantly - (hit it and quit it...? ) it doesn't linger around.. same with the DIY - the power is there for control... obviously not all drivers will sound the same, hense the idea of my shootout to gather them together and compare. The Ported SVS subs, I had the PB12-Plus and the PB12-Plus/2's, I like the output but you couldn't really get a good grasp of SQ from them in that stupid huge room, they are much cleaner in a smaller room. Those subs had a bit more note overhang which got more and more prevalent to me after I got the F112, they would hit and kinda linger around for a bit.... I like to kid that they would "Stay for Dinner" I needed some serious output in the room and tried to accomplish it with sealed 15's... not enough, but at least it started me into getting a handle on DIY builds. So far the 18's are great, lots of clean output, much more articulate then the SVS's, It'll be good to get my 3rd one finished, it will also be nice to put them up against the LMS-5400 to see how it compares.

Man, wish I could drop in!

I am looking forward to the writeup!
post #53 of 414
I am psyched about this... can't wait for a write-up on the subjective findings.

Very rare opportunity to see various tiers of gear running side-by-side.

I am slowly putting together a variety of tracks to play at the GTG. I am shooting for tracks that extend pretty low and others with tight/quick chest pounding bass. Now with all the massive DIY subs coming to the party, my poor ol Rythmik will be like the Bose AM Bass module
post #57 of 414
I would love to go to one of these, but it is a long way from Glasgow, Kentucky.

Thanks for that! Since I got my Dynaudio sub and the few times I have listened too it I have felt it is tactile but definitely not room filling. I will probably leave it at home as there is so much to listen too already who needs 1 more. I am trying to make it and if I can I will bring some tasty food or drink instead of more gear.... I also have a telarc CD that has some pretty ridiculous lows. 18HZ region or so IIRC...

Me too. I'm trying to get some stuff that goes really low, some snappy percussive stuff and some really smooth upper bass stuff that will look at the note tracking ability. Shoot, I can't wait to hear that Rythmik. I've heard so much about their SQ. I wanna see how it compares to the F112.

Warp,
We are doing a finale of WOTW with all of the subs running right?
