Nobody has updated/confirmed attendance to me directly, except for listeners. I'll update the first post with confirmed attendees.
Jeff has mentioned bringing multiple products in. On the JTR Speaker forum he confirmed he'll be bringing the sealed caps the meet. I've got my Cap Pro ported pair - so there will be at least those two representing JTR.
Sounds like we'll have some Chase Home Theater equipment brought in by owners - at least a couple of sealed 18.1's or 18.2's depending on who shows. Maybe more types -- unsure.
I haven't had the Elemental Designs options yet confirmed by Alex - but we'd be glad to have them here too.
I haven't had the submersives' attendance confirmed by counsil. I sure hope we have a couple of them entered. Mark's chimed in the thread a couple times, but no confirmation on the submersive's attendance yet.
I've had a hodge podge of individual subs offered as singles for demos - but I still want to use doubles for every single thing we listen to - to keep the playing field level and the listening area response smooth. I also want to limit this audition to the top tier subs if you will - so that we don't run out of time. I took Friday off and can also have Sunday free, and Monday is a holiday --- so I've got a lot of time. If we want to audition more subs we can if we want to make it a two day we can -- but I think our Saturday will be full with six blind sub auditions at most.
My room really likes doubles. Luke and I got the Caps to downright impressive smooth FR with the omnimic on his last visit. We found the natural sweet spot in the room and figured out the optimal facing direction. We can likely use this spot and this direction for all subs at the meet.
I would also recommend we have a couple subs hooked up before we ever start the blind judging to listen to the demo material on - NOT included in the blind audition rankings - but simply to get a feel for what to expect sound wise in my room before we ever begin the blind auditions. At the Husker Omaha meet we just listened to the first subs blind - no knowing what the room sounded like at all. For this task I'd like a couple of high quality, well known subs. A pair of SVS PB12+ or a pair of HSU VTF-15H (luke?) for instance. The subs will give the first blind audition more relevance and accuracy in the voting. Otherwise no one knows how to vote the first blind subs' audition because they don't know how the room sounds or what they should expect.
This weekend I'll post some graphs of my room.
