It's time for a HEMI Meet - SE Michigan

Anyone interested in a Southeastern Michigan HEMI Meet?


When: Saturday, January 28th - 1:00pm - ????
Where: Canton, MI (Cherry Hill Village)


Hey there everyone, since my theater is back up and running (The Village Theater 2.0), I'd like to host a meet finally. Since I haven't done this before, I'd like to get some comments, advice for a successful meet. Please let me know if you are interested, so we can a count for planning purposes. We are finalizing the agenda, so please let us know what you would be interested in seeing/hearing during the meet.


As a preview of my setup, I'm running a Ken Whitcomb calibrated, Bryan Pape Acoutically treated, 14' x 19' - 8 seat, 7.2 system with a JVC RS25 PJ (up for replacement), SmX ProCurv 110" 2.35:1 screen, Panamorph Anamorphic Lens, 2 Velodyne DD-15's, Onkyo PR-SC885 Pre/Pro (up for replacement), Paradigm Studio 100's, ADP 390's, Oppo BR, Xbox One, Anthem MCA 50 and MCA 20 amps, controlled by a whole house Contol4 system with over 180 devices, including 63 dimmers, 20+ switches, DMX LED control, Garage Doors, Lock Systems, Water Leak Protection, Geofencing, Security System, MoviePoster app running on a 43" LED panel, and more..... I'm looking to add Atmos, but didn't at the time of renovation because of the timing, so I can use some reviews on how I could add Atmos to the system.

I'm interested. You should probably post links to this thread in the recent SE Mich meet threads.

I'm surprised there isn't more activity on this thread. These g2g's are so awesome to talk about and enjoy the hobby! I am very excited. I just got a THX demo disc with close to 50 movie clips on it that is a lot of fun. I will definitely bring it. We have an awesome group of avs members around here. Everyone made my g2g a lot of fun. Even sharing the good seats and being cool about the fact that I had only enough seats for about half of us, everyone was cool. So I am looking forward to this very much. Let me know anything I can do to help!

Totally missed this thread - count me in!
I know the wife and I have evening plans that day so I might be sneaking out early, but I don't wanna miss it!

I can also bring along my "Scuba Steve" demo disk for some fun clips if we need more material.

Ugh. Not again. I've got a conflict that weekend and unfortunately won't be able to join. I have a previous work commitment during my wife and my anniversary so we'll be celebrating it that weekend. Probably too late to bail without ending up in the doghouse for awhile. Still subbed.

Anyone interested in making a SE Michigan facebook group to organize these a little easier? I know there are a few of these threads open and a bigger facebook group someone posted.

Especially for build tips and help/meet-ups it seems like it would be nice to have a more consistent local group instead of following meet-up threads

I don't know if I'm the person to be an admin, but does anyone want to help with this?

I like the idea, but we'd probably want to make it a closed group so just AVS folks are a part of it... I don't know about you guys but I'm comfortable with "strangers" from this forum coming to see a get together, but I don't want just random folks from Facebook showing up at a meet.
It is hard to spot these if you don't check this area every time you log on... I usually just check my subscribed threads unless I have a lot of time to look at new topics.

Yeah. I wouldn't have spotted this if it weren't mentioned in two build threads that I'm subscribed to.

Yes, true. I feel more comfortable with the group here and have met a lot of you guys in person. Would need to be a private group. If not Facebook, just thinking of a good way to bring together all the meet up threads and make an common place we can communicate easier.

We have a good group if people want to get closer acquainted to do small hangouts help build out or swap/sell gear locally

I'm all ears if someone has a good safe, common platform. Kind of like a mini-forum for local folks.

It seems like other areas around the country just keep a running g2g thread everyone is subscribed to. We could do that. One SW MI thread.

Seems like the easiest option.

Bummer! I guess I'll have to spend the time running REW on mine and installing my bass traps.
