I'd be up for pairs.
--- but I'm not opposed to singles either...it'll probably just amount to what we can get.
Saturday will be fun for everyone - but Sunday will be a work day to re-grout all my tile that has cracked and broken apart through this likely outrageous event
You guys who haven't been to my house ought to know up front. I'm happy to host, but my house and theater room are humble compared to a lot of guys on these forums. I don't have sound treatment on the walls or snazy this and thats. When we crank up dual caps or orbit shifters --- things will in fact rattle a wee bit in my 3500 cubic foot room -
Though I think they would in most rooms, unless heavily treated. If I keep my fireplace glass cracked open, and the circuit breaker box open then the worst of it is mitigated. That being said if someone else in the midwest wants to host and has a dedicated room and the ability to ship off their family for a day or two - they are welcome to volunteer their room as well! At the KC meet we cranked the AVR to about +5 as a maximum on some of the tracks if I remember correctly. It was both painful and awesome at the same time.
If we wanted to go REALLY crazy the church I attend is fairly secluded and has a large auditorium and many small classrooms. I had asked previously if we could use the facility for something like this on a Saturday and was told that would be fine. It no longer would be applicable for a home theater room compare --- but it would be pretty fun to cut the subs loose and see what they do in a couple hundred person sanctuary, or the classroom size of our choice. I offer that as a brainstorm alternative, but my home remains open as the more likely option.
My wife and family will be out of state visiting family so anybody from out of town is very welcome to crash on the floor, couch, recliners - wherever. then fell free to hang out - Fri and Sat nights. Go as you please on Sunday - whenever is comfortable.
For the tests it might be fun to do some real world usage tests too outside of just music and movies. How about a song on each sub playing a music game with a bass heavy song selection like DJ Hero or Guitar Hero with four player bass guitar part?
I would also like to change up the subwoofer tracks to encompass more variety. WOTW type rumblings over and over get tiresome by day's end. One or two has it's place in the clip lineups - but let's hear how the big boys offer finess as well? The Deeper song by Pete Balasco was great at the Omaha meet, as were a few of the other tracks. It'd be ideal to keep the audition tracks very different to encompass what the subs can do in all aspects of sound reproduction!?!
As to setup rules for eq and such --- I'm flexible --- just the idea of keeping the auditioning sub blind from the voters will be fun.
