That's awesome! Really looking forward to hearing the new driver!

Bringing this thread back alive. I am planning a GTG in Houston, tentatively scheduled for Sept 29th at my house which is close to Mid-Town. Let me know if you are interested, I will keep this post updated with a list to keep everyone informed. I can handle about 20 people comfortably on my 2nd level great room. It's a multipurpose room and not a dedicated HT room but it can still get loud. I am not a super technical person so any help in that area is appreciated.

All subs are certainly welcome and encrouaged, I don't have any particular "shoot out" in mind unless someone wants to focus on something. Looks like Rythmik will be in attendance with an FV-18HT - paper cone driver (AWESOME!).

Keep in mind I am on a second level and anything heavy will likely need 2 people. My subs are 165lbs and we carried them up just fine........with a little effort and a beer. At the very least, I just want this to be fun!

Tentative shedule:
Mid-Late morning setup
Kick off around lunch for the fun!
Ends - Whenever!

Todd

I know of a few people already:

@imureh , @djreef , @bgtighe23 , @Marc Alexander , @Enrico , @Rythmik
Imin. This should be fun.

I’m a couple of hours away but would like to come.
Who wants to hear an original PSA Triax?

Need some big boys to carry it though, weighs about 265 lbs and the odd shape makes it difficult to handle.

Yeah, it’s downstairs and I have double doors to outside I can take it out through.

It’s definitely a beast but have a few friends that could help/maybe I’ll get in better shape by then. Lol

Awesome........added.! You have a sub you would like to bring or media files?

Honestly, that question goes out to everyone else that is planning on coming. I'll update the post to reflect subs and media being brought.

I have most of the heavy hitters movie wise but I don't have a super nice system to do it quickly. I will have a laptop on hand to make it easier to cycle through some demos. I've gotten some files from @chucky7 but may hit him up with a few more.

Yes, I'd like to get everyone's email and then send my contact information that way. I'll start contacting people this weekend. Update the post with some food and we should be all set. Again, if you would like to bring a sub.......by all means let us know. The more the merrier!!

Yeah. It would be good to get a mix of subs.

Todd: may be we should start noting down the ones that we know will be present so people know and can bring a different one?

Todd -


Can you add me to possible attendees if I can break away from the family? Really would like to hear several subs that have been on my radar but I have never been able to take the leap. Maybe the GTG will help me make a decision.

Added! You might regret your decision to come, we'll have you buying dual 4k's, Fv25 or v3601!

But, we'd love to have you, promise no peer pressure.

Happy Sept. 1st, just a few weeks away from the meet, Sept. 29th still looking good? I'm still free that weekend. Do we have confirmed people like Rythmik Audio? Anyone bringing anything special? I plan on bringing some drinks for sure, didn't know if you needed anyone to bring anything special.

At some gtgs in the past, people wore "name tags" for a few hours with their username/forum name on them, didn't know if you wanted to do that?

Looking forward to this meet, unfortunately,, I don't have a car big enough or gear small enough to bring anything special. I do have some PA460s not yet in cabs though lol
