Se mi diy g2g

I've had a great time meeting a lot of your at the recent G2G's. I definitely don't want to oversell mine, as the title says "diy". I currently have an unfinished basement I'm looking to get going on and you guys (and this forum) have inspired me that I could build it out myself instead of contracting it all out.

Consider it a live build thread

I've done very little construction stuff before. So, hoping to get more understanding of the build process and make a good plan to knock it out. Always a good time to get everyone together and January should be when holiday plans are dying out and we don't have much of a reason to go outside. Attached the plan I have for now.

I have a modest living room setup plasma/5.2.2. Also, 7 zones of other audio throughout the house (not as nice 2-channel setups as Sid) for whole house audio connected to Control4.

I'll order some pizza and we can make it an afternoon on January 20th

I would love to attend but my wife told me weeks ago to take the 19th and that weekend off for my Christmas gift. I'll keep an eyes open on the thread to see if anything changes with the event date.

Cool. A few people getting together would still be fun. I don't have the setup like @hd0823 to show off yet. That day is not set in stone, just a starting point to throw something out here. Open to 1/27 or 2/3 too if those work better for people. I think @Jk7.2 might be interested too. Would be happy to come up with half the system you guys have when I'm done!

The other Kevin from the 2 channel G2G was interested in def tech towers. I could show my def tech setup if he wants to hear what the built in subs are like, pretty sleek for a non-dedicated room.

There was also a Control4 guy who was going to host sometime last year. Would be cool to chat with him since I think his Control4 system is way more intricate than mine. Mark maybe?

I assume you're the Kevin I sat next to at the Last Jedi at the Dolby screen?

Hope you can make it. All the parts of your basement are really cool

There were two Kevin’s at the last G2G. I don’t know his name on AVS to find him again though. I’m “the other Kevin”.

I’ll post more of an equipment list later to try and get a little more interest. Didn’t realize there was another downriver guy in the group. Looks like you don’t live too far from me.

Sorry I have not popped in here yet! Let me check the schedule and get back here. Sounds fun. Looks like you have a great plan. Something I never had and I ended up redoing my space three major times.

I think this event has passed, but it would be nice to be part of a future SE Michigan event.

I'm building a multi-purpose room theater in Ann Arbor, out of our already-finished basement. I got the go-ahead from the wife a bit ago, I'm looking forward to it finally being a reality!

I know a few of us will be having spring and summer g2gs . I plan on having one as soon as I'm done with my wife's library and my last two submaximus v3 subs
