intro to "mr crowley" from blizzard of ozz wouldn't suck...

Like I said, I have some Allman Brothers, Little Feat etc... for those that are not metal heads. But they still have great bass lines. Me, I never out grew the heavy stuff. But for me the heaviest is Megadeth. I was mostly an Iron Maiden and AC\\DC fan myself. With some other Hard Rock sprinkled in.

(Hey, with all the investment in HT, might as well buy content!)

Let me know what the group is interested in and I'll bring em down.

Umm...YES! Pick 1-2 of your favorites and bring them down.

Perfect, that should save some time.

Sounds like most of the music and movies are covered already. There is one genre I didn't notice. Not sure how much lf is in it but my friend has a lot of techno/trance music. If anyone is interested, I'll pick his brain to find out what he has that would dip into the lf and bring it along.

Sounds like what you have will appeal to anyone interested in hearing Rock music. I think we'll be pretty good in that area.

I used to listen to really heavy stuff, but have kind of mellowed out in the past few years. The heaviest I will do now would be a bit more mainstream - Deftones, Slipknot, Godsmack, etc. Machine gun drums are the ultimate test of responsiveness in a sub.

I don't know about the group's collective taste as I know that could vary greatly - but know I'm personally always interested in listening to unique types and selections of music.

I could even bring some Irish folk music - not sure what the impact will be but maybe a good test to make sure subs aren't rearing their heads where they aren't needed.

Speaking of....any Dropkick fans out there?

I'm actually friends with the dropkicks...I grew up in Boston and used to do security for them

That's what TOOL is good for. One of the best drummers I have ever heard for the heavy stuff.

You consider Slipknot and the Deftones as mellowing out? Man, I can't imagine what you were listening to before that...

Ever see a TV program called That Metal Show on VH1?

I might be able to attend this as well. I'm not really familiar with many subs at all so it would be great to listen to a bit more variety then the few I've listened to. I've really only heard the ones at the Best Buy Magnolia store.

Agreed, we will have to incorporate a bit of their work into our listening session.

Heh, yeah I guess my taste can be considered a little intense at times. That doesn't prevent me from listening to others like Coltrane, Brubek, or the beach boys though. totally depends on the occasion or mood I guess.

I've heard of that show, but hadn't caught any of it yet. Perhaps it is dvr worthy.

You should certainly attend, I think you might from some surprises when listening to some of the bigger subs here.

It's three guys from Jersey (that's where I'm from) who host it. The main host -- Eddie Trunk -- has been doing this stuff for decades. Literally. I used to talk with him 25 years ago when he had a radio show. He knows all there is to know about hard rock and heavy metal. A bit of a doofus, but one very knowledgeable guy. You should check it out.

I would love to get the dropkicks to attend but I'm really only friendly with the bag pipe player and he really isn't into this kind of stuff. If this business takes off I plan on sending him a unit and have him write a review.

For some Tool music I have my buddy coming who actually bought a few subs from me coming and he is an avid Tool fan so I'll get him to bring some of his Tool albums.

Metallica's Black album and Master of Puppets would both be really good albums to listen to in terms of quality and quantity of heavy bass....btw I hate Metallica after the shyte Lars Ulrich pulled with Napster

You will be shocked with what you hear and this will open up a while new world to you of all you have experienced is worst buy's magnolia section.

Great meeting you Phil! Very cool of you to offer to help move the beasts too. thanks again.
post #226 of 431
I would love to be able to listen to the Caps and others as I will shortly be in the market for some new Subs.
post #227 of 431
Thanks Gorilla. It was a good time. Amazing how hours fly by. Hit you up soon. Later.

I'll mark you down as an attendee - let me know if anything changes. Where in PA do you live?

All - Is there anyone else that plans on attending that I've missed in the first post? Let me know.
post #229 of 431
Hey Andrew, I saw the list of attendees and I don't have Empires. I thought about them and almost called the person that was selling a pair on Gon. I ordered the Cap 1k instead and should be coming in later this week. -Wei

Any chance you could test a single Submersive HP against a single Captivator? At the last get together, they tested a single Submersive and dual Captivators but I'm trying to decide which one to purchase and that comparison didn't help at all...

Due to the time it take for set up and calibration, I'd say it's not likely we'll be testing singles but in this instance it will be duals of both so a fair comparison.

Fellas - We're down to the one month mark. I'm getting impatient, LOL.

Can't wait!
post #235 of 431
Andrew - lets close the attendance list at this point since we are just shy of 20. I also have a buddy or two coming as well so we are right around 20. Also what is the plan or what were you thinking for food and drink?
post #236 of 431
Hi guys,

I have had something come up and I will not be able to attend. Sorry. I know it will be fun and I will enjoy reading all the first hand accounts of the day. Enjoy it!

You got it. Let's talk this weekend around a plan for food.

Craig - sorry to hear that, you will be missed! Thanks for giving us more than ample notice though.

Gorilla83; do you think there's room for one more sub? I may be able to bring a prototype of something new from another ID company, provided you think there's enough time to include one more to the pile of course. The unit in question is along the lines of what's already being brought, so it wouldn't be one of the cheapo budget subs I've been reviewing...

Hey Jim,

I don't think that should be a problem. I'm thinking at this point we'll have a solid 6-7 unique setups to play with. If you have something interesting we should hear, by all means!

Can you sneak us any details in the meantime?

I can indeed...

In the past year I've been involved in the design of two things; satellites and a subwoofer. The satellites I helped a lot with, but the sub I was far more integral in the entire process. Both were in conjunction with EbenLee Audio. The sub is called the ELA-3. It's an acoustic suspension design that utilizes a 10" down-firing driver and 540 watt amp. That same design was then extended upwards to a model that uses a 15" driver and a 1000 watt amp, called the ELA-5. There will eventually be an ELA-4 too, which will use a 12" driver and the same 540 watt amp as the ELA-3.

I have one of the ELA-3 final prototypes sitting in my living room at this very minute. That model is now in final production trim and shipping. The initial prototypes of the ELA-5 are just about to be built, so I'm trying to convince the owner of EbenLee -- Peter Selby -- to bring one of those beasts down do the GTG for an unveiling of sorts. Thus far the signs are encouraging, but he's in Ohio so it's not as easy a trip for him.

Based upon the initial projections it could weigh around 140-150 pounds, so it might take a few of us to get the thing inside the house, but I'm sure I can find enough able bodies to assist. Now all I have to do is convince Peter to commit and we're all set. If I'm not able to do that then I may bring one down myself, but Peter is definitely the better man for the job.
