Any DIYSG speakers in KC that I can listen to?

I'm ready to make the jump into DIY, specifically the DIYSG HTM 12's (recommended by Erich), maybe the Fusion 15's, but before I make the commitment I was hoping someone in the general KC area might have a set I can listen to?
I promise not to take too much of your time, just a few scenes from my favorite movies would suffice.
Just last minute jitters on wether or not they will be a significant upgrade from my Triad In Room Silver LCR's.

Sean there's a big KC crowd on this forum and there hosting a HT crawl in February. I would reach out to those guys. Check out the threads in the area home theater meets part of the forum. I'm sure some of those guys would be happy to have you listen to there diysg speakers.

If you are ever down around Wichita you are welcome to stop by my place. I currently have the Fusion 8's but have HTM-12's almost completed. I should be getting the crossovers back from Matt soon. Should be up and running next week.

I have the cinema 8s and my center is the alchemy 8. I was in the same boat as you prior to building mine. I built the LR and after hearing them once, ordered my center. Diysoundgroup knows what they are doing. If I had the space, I'd build the htm-12. I haven't heard them, but based on pure reputation, I'd build them. I've heard the volt 6,8,10, 1099 in addition to mine. All great for how they were used. If you build the htm-12, bring them in February!
@sigma722 has the 1099s.

Thank you very much for the offer! I look forward to your HTM 12 reviews once finished.
Did the sound from the Fusion 8's sell you on the HTM 12's?

I just read through your cinema 8 build. Nice job. I sure hope to have these ordered and built before Christmas if they are in stock. I'd be happy to bring them to the February meeting.

Well, the HTM-12's are for a friend who is building a house right now. I went with the 8's due to placement restrictions in my rec room. I absolutely love how they sound and honestly don't think I will be looking to replace them. Now, I will do a side by side comparison once the 12's are done and if they are that much better then a couple of years down the road when I build another house, I will consider upgrading then.

Thanks for the compliment. I need to update the picture of the crossover. I had the orientation of the coils wrong.
