Yes those are the two weekends that work best for me and could demo my 1099s and hsu vtf-3 mk5 hps if people are interested. I'm just down the road from you in Rosemount.

Steve has 893 and 18s this year. Boss has 1299s, Wes’s has 1099s...who knows what else has changed since the last time.
@zorax2 has a fancy new JVC 4k projector!

Thanks for tagging me! I will keep an eye on the thread, if I am in the twin cities during the day picked, I would love to be a part of it. Haven't visited since last summer, I should fix that..

So far - either of those dates will work.

No audio changes since last year but, as @lukeamdman mentioned, I'm the proud owner of a new JVC that might be of interest to some of you. You can't get a decent demo of a JVC projector anywhere locally that I know of.

I got some 24's that should be shipping any day now I ordered them black Friday 😬 It will be a push to get the boxes done in time. Was gonna build 22Cuft ported box and a 10 Cuft sealed box and see which I prefer.

Ported FTW! Especially with 24s....

Ask Luke. His 21s sound so much cleaner and effortless ported vs sealed. If it were me, and I know it's not; but, if it were I'd go ported and never look back. Maybe see about getting down to Luke's to hear his ported 21s.

Luke - you're the man! Thanks for getting this started.


I'm in, and I'd be more than willing to be a stop on the tour. I've got 893s, volt 6's, and 4 UM-18s.


Not a real big space, but we can make it work.


Either of the weekends work for me. I think the 14th might be better, but I'll make either work.

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.

I am but would rather go to Luke’s house if I had to choose between one of them. We normally have a bunch of us Chicagoland guys going there every year. Its a lot of fun to see so many different brands of speakers plus Seaton audios room and JTR’s room.

I was hoping to be able to do both. Would also give me an opportunity to come check out your theater and maybe some other ones.

But, I'd also rather go to Luke's. My wife and I love Chicago, so there will be other chances to check out your theater.

Thanks Mike! Yeah, Chicago is an awesome place for a food freak like me. We ate breakfast at Wildberry last time we were there. One of the best breakfasts I've ever had. I'm open to any and all recommendations.

I think this seals the deal for the weekend of the 21st.

Road trip or Southwest. It (almost) sucks I don't work for the old firm that had offices in the Twin Cities anymore, because then I could make a business trip out of it. Regardless it'd be worth the travel. I got to experience Luke's setup a few years back... and it set the bar for me for sound.

If it's the weekend of the 21st, I'm out. Already got another, slightly different forum g2g planned for that weekend. It's gonna be a whole lotta golf, with just a little HT mixed in when we have time.

I might be able to drag along @jeahrens @Draden1 @BradS @slarity

or even my buddy Russ who makes every GTG more fun.

Either of those middle weekends in April will work. Had a great time on the KC Crawl and always enjoy a trip to the Cities (again a big thanks to the KC crew for such a great event). I'd be happy to either drive or pay for gas to get some of the Idiots Out Wandering Around (Iowa) up there. And Zorax2 I have the older sibling to your 540 (RS520) and I'm still blown away by the picture these things throw. Folks who haven't seen them are in for a treat. Love to see the newer e-shift and how it compares.

And to comment on an earlier post, I'm with Rowan. I love seeing theaters big, small, inexpensive and top of the line. It's always interesting to see what choices people make and what gear they choose and why.

Ryan I'm not sure what Russ wouldn't make more fun
