Here's the location - http://www.cabq.gov/museum/
in the small auditorium. There's a Picasso exhibit going on as well.
So far, the plans are to do either 6.3 or 7.4 surround, all Xd. Since Jack is coming, I'll use the NHT Controller as the preamp/processor, the NAD M55 will be the source. InFocus has promised a prototype IN76 720p DLP projector. Jack may do a talk or two, or we'll just play lots and lots of sound and just talk to people outside. It's up to him. Maybe a power point. The thing is, it will be a "streaming" group of people, so it will be hard to do much unless we do it in maybe 10 minute bites. I won't be able to play at ultra high volumes because it can't piss off the other visitors, but we can get away with reasonable volumes. It will primarily be multi-channel music and video. If the video proves too loud or rumbly for the museum, we'll go straight to all 5.1 music, which should be no problem. Preferably, the movie selections will be more realistic and less explosion oriented, just to ward off problems, but we'll see what we can get away with.
Outside, I'm going to have, with a little luck, a pair of NHT Classic Threes, a pair of Twelve subs and the NAD M3 integrated fed by a Mac Mini or iPod, just to give people a taste of those. This is still up in the air because I have to get permission from the museum for this part. But I'll probably play Spanish music to compliment the Picasso exhibit.
