Hey Mike

I'm definitely in for the GTG. I may have a +1. I've been telling everyone I know how ridiculous your system is and how I need my new space to sound half as good as yours. I'm probably in to bring the bbq pork again.

I'm also definitely interested in the Titans if they're up fo sale.

I'm super pumped to see what new kind of ridiculous you have in store for your theater this year with the new LCR's.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I'll likely bring:
-(2) of my HTM-12s
-(1) or both of my PSI Audio 12s in DIYSG 4 cube enclosures - these will be for sale
-spare iNuke6000DSP (may also be for sale w/ the 12s)
-spare Crown XLS1500
-barley pops of various flavorings
-high calorie, low nutritional value other foodstuffs

For the out-of-towners I know/have met, we have a spare bedroom available for a nominal fee of barley pops of various flavorings, and I am an easy country-road 15 minute drive from the main event. Also 8 minutes from I-80.

These GTGs are always a blast. We cannot ask for a better host than eng-399 either.

Would it be selfish if I brought some measurements of my room for an explanation of what they mean?

How long after are we going to be building him a new sub (or 2)? He will have an all DIY theater setup within a year

Mike would it be helpful if I bought my umm-6 for measurements? Having more than one around might be helpful?

Also I still have a JBL 2226HPL for sale if anyone wants it for $100.

@JCJetta I might be interested in those 12s and maybe the iNuke or Crown....if they're not already spoken for. And, maybe the room to if it's still available. I'm more than happy to bring barley pops of various flavorings
