NC/SC General HT Chat Area and G2G Planning
 
CURRENT UPCOMING G2G(s):


Alright so I have noticed that there are just a smorgasbord of different little g2g requests, regional groupings, and generally embarrassing attempts at getting g2g's rolling around here. I am grabbing the bull by the horns here and will begin trying to cast a large drag net and get all the folks I know around here into this thread.

I guess the reason for starting this thread is two-fold. First it would obviously be to have folks post with interest in local g2g's, but more importantly I want this to be a place for folks to come with design ideas, questions, and general information gathering. There is an encyclopedia's worth of knowledge between the two beautiful Carolina states and we need a place for this knowledge to flourish.

I will begin tagging folks in the following post so that they will know this thread exists, but please don't hesitate to tag other NC folk that you know of. If you don't know how to tag people, just simply put the "@" sign in front of their name. Example, and I hope he doesn't mind, just type it like this:

You use the "@" Feature to mention other folks you know from other threads that are in NC/SC area to alert them about this thread. or you could just copy/paste their name here and I can add them to the list.

You are added! Keep your updates going here with some pics or link us all to what you are into! I plan on getting some info out once we get some traction here! I am constantly working on things and building out boxes so I hope this will be a cool place to show everyone what I am doing, as well as all the other participants that are joining!

Tony, you remember my name right? haha Just kidding, you were one of the first added! Hope all is well with you Bud :) When are you going to make a trip up this way for a little demo?

tony123 08-12-2014 07:26 PM

I'm so sorry I missed your last GTG. Looked like a blast! I haven't held one at my place since the last time you were here.

I've got to get up there! Been out of town all summer.

What the heck Beast? You have something against your neighbors to the west? We want to be in the cool club too.

Coach and Dgage feeling left out. :crying:

I'll bring a pair of HS24s and a SpeakerPower SP2-8000 to any GTG in the area if that has any bearing on us being allowed to play with the cool kids. :D

Would have liked to meet you at Beast's last GTG Tony. Sorry I missed you man!

What's this? You picked up a pair? I thought you were just getting the one?

TimB 08-13-2014 03:58 AM

Thanks for thinking of this. Have been absent and pre-occupied for a while. This gives me a little extra motivation to get back to a number of projects gathering virtual and actual dust.

Transmaniacon 08-13-2014 05:29 AM

Great idea, hope there is another GTG soon!

NicksHitachi 08-13-2014 06:26 AM

Nice work Beast.

I'm all about a G2G. Need to put some faces to names....

Missed you too Tony! I am open anytime you want to come up and blast some speakers bud! 45 minutes out makes for a pretty easy Sunday or something. Suffice it to say the theater doesn't sound anything like the last time you were up here.

You guys get honorary invites to anything I host, you know that :) Just subscribe to this too, I'm sure no one would mind a little love from our land-locked neighbor to the west.

I feel like something could be put into the works here in the next couple months... :eek:

wraunch 08-13-2014 11:34 AM

Beast,
I have admired your work in the past. When I get the funds to upgrade equip I would love to undertake some DIY speaker projects and I'll definitely want to bend your ear when that day comes. Thanks again for starting this.

beastaudio 08-13-2014 12:31 PM

No problem! I have some fun new things on the horizon too :) It is starting to get cooler, and into major buildout season for me so I am looking forward to getting a couple 6 sheets of ply and have some fun this fall!!

TMcG 08-13-2014 05:07 PM

Thanks for putting this together, Beast! I completely agree with @Nick****achi that it is long overdue to get together and start putting faces to usernames!

Depending on when this whole thing comes together, I should have my IST UXL-18 subs built and can pack up any number of my Procella speakers for any auditioning / listening / shootout / whatever. I'd also be interested to hear what other folks could bring if the GTG goes that direction.

The shootouts are always a killer time! I would be willing to host and have a pretty good space to do so with easy access to the rear of my rack, and about 30 feet depth to the room to allow several rows of seating and standing room in the rear for demoing, along with the den on the main floor where the ls-6's are and can be utilized too. The only problem is with the SH50's in place in the HT, they likely wouldn't be moved out for other speakers, we could just place anything else in front of them, or in front of the screen, whichever works best.
