Here are some pictures I took at Axpona 2015
of the assembled system and room:
This year's Axpona 2015 was far and away our most ambitious undertaking and largest public demonstration we have set up. It was wonderful to share such an exciting home theater experience with so many enthusiasts and see their enjoyment of the end result. We plan to set up in the same room for next year and hope kick it up even a step higher next year! I also want to express special thanks to Ken Whitcomb, aka
, of Calibrations, Inc.
for delivering a great image from the Sony VPL-VW1100ES projector and Seymour AV
's Enlightor 4k 115" wide, 132" diagonal screen (thanks again
!). Thank you to all who made it to the room to join in the fun! [cool]
Below are a few shots I was able to get of the very dark room. While the black and dark blue curtains were wonderful help with the acoustics when spaced well off the walls, they did make picture taking rather tricky. Next year we'll work out more lighting and control of the lighting:
Walking in the double doors to our room at the end of the hall on the lobby level of the Westin visitors were greeted with a static display of an SubMersive HP+ in espresso cherry, 2 of our new Spark HC loudspeakers in black maple and a SubMersive F2+ in our vintage cherry finish. The tall blue curtain helped both with acoustics and to maintain the beautiful image of the Sony projector on the 115" wide screen even as people streamed in and out of the double doors at the back of the room.
This was the view attendees walked into as they stepped around the big blue curtain above:
A little brighter view of the 3 Catalyst 12C internally tri-amplified speakers and 4 SubMersive F2-Slave subwoofers powered by 8kW of power remotely from the equipment rack. There were 2 more stacks of SubMersive HP+ & HP-Slave units in each rear corner of the room for 8 total SubMersives with 16kW of power and another 8kW of power between the 3 Catalyst 12Cs and 4 Spark HC speakers in the room.
It was also a great pleasure to have Jerry McNutt, Eminence's Product Design Manager, spend some time the room. It was even more fun to let him experience what 16kW of power can do with 16 of the 15" drivers he and Eminence have helped me bring to market.
