I'm going - already made hotel reservations a few months back (I'm on the central East Coast so I'll be there the day night before and leave the morning after). Went to RMAF last year and was really disappointed by the organization of show (and probably a decent portion was the venue). Have been to many of the Capital Audiofests (moved from that area) and the New York show many years back. Was planning to go to AXPONA when news of the Tampa show hit and I figured it's good to support a local show (so hopefully there will be more) and ditched plans for AXPONA next year at least.

Great, maybe we can meet up at some point and cruise the demos.

Well if both you guys are going, maybe I should too.



I have a friend, @filtor1 , that lives just up the road from there. He just finished work on his last 2 subs and now has a quad Fi 18" setup.


Maybe kill 2 birds with one stone...

One week out and still planning to attend. Can you guys @HighEndWire , @biliam1982 , @filtor1 confirm attendance and approximately what time you plan to arrive ? Just so we can better coordinate. Thanks.

Current plan is to be onsite by 10:30AM Saturday. I went ahead and booked for 2 spots for the entire weekend as there is the potential I could extend the weekend.

I still plan to attend but haven't booked a hotel yet. I like jumping on those Hotwire/Priceline blind special deals.


But I was thinking of coming in on Thursday too. Or maybe Friday. Not sure yet.



Maybe one day going up to Filtor1's place to demo his quad 18" subs he just finished.


Saturday for the Audio Expo all day.


Another day, I have a friend in Port Richey area (who is also probably going to join us for the expo) I might go see. He's got a Optoma UHZ65 4K laser projector.

Hello Gents,

I must apologize and now bow out of attending this Expo. Something has come up that I can not kick down the road. I was looking forward to having the opportunity to personally demo some of the amazing Speaker Brands that will be on display. I hope you few that do go have a great time and enjoy the Expo.

Here is a list of Exhibitors:

Sorry to hear that, Adam. Hope everything is ok.


We can always meet up another time. Jax group does a lot of GTG's. Or if you ever hold one or someone in your area does I may be able to drive over.

I would be happy to host a GTG! We can work out the details later. I don't have world class gear but perhaps a few items folks may be interested to demo. Nice suggestion.

Have fun at the Expo

P.S. Hotel prices went up because there is another major event taking place at the same time: "Florida State Fair" and the "Flex Fest".
