Thanks for the reply.
Wow! That would be neat Dave! Dave's DIY system has undergone a number of significant changes and upgrades.

Best Regards,
Terry

I had been waiting to see if Gary was going to commit to bringing his whole system. He has related that his system has had a number of significant changes, upgrades or modifications from what we've seen before. Building
Audio is Gary's method of relaxation when he's not teaching music or Conducting an Orchestra.

Best Regards,
Terry

Default Baffled by ring of domes

Here is a taste of what I've been working on. If I can figure out how to make it sound good, I will pull the trigger. Here is the drawing for a ring shaped baffle to hold many 2" Aurasound drivers.

That should be a real treat! Anxious to hear it all with the new amp.

I suspected that "The Other Olson" would come up with some crazy idea for this event! So far, I certainly don't feel like I'll be disappointed.

Looking forward to join this event! I will bring the first open baffle active speakers I have been putting together. I got the drivers in last DIY speaker contest thanks to a very generous offer, caught the bug and urge to build my own at that time. Lots of good speakers and ideas from DIY enthusiasts in these events. I am sure it will also be a blast this time! Don't want to miss...

My open baffles will have 6 total ICE modules built-in, driving 3 way design: 2 x 1000ASP, 2 x 500ASP, and 2 x 500A. Some serious power! Via a DBX active crossover.

Gary,

Your system will blow every other system out of the water. I think we'll have to set you up in the little room together with the headphone amps. That way we can be assured that some folks will have to stand outside the door and might possibly hear some of the other entries.

Hey guys,

I'll be bringing along my 3D-printed prototypes as well. If anyone has an amp project and would like to collaborate that would be sweet. I'll have three pairs to show, but only one pair really needs to be hooked up.

Default My open baffles have significantly improved since the contest

I will bring my 4way (5way with rear tweeter) tapered, solid cherry open baffles that feature 18"subs, 12"Bozak woofs, Faital Pro mids, and dome&AMT tweets.

I hope to get around to completing some circa 1965 KLH model 19 .25 cuft walnut cabs, stuffed with 5 new drivers and a 6x9 PR in each! Not a simple and elegant design, but I like the retro cabs and the prototype goes loud and clean. The sound is balanced and clear. Basically a 3way mini monitor with dipole-effect drivers and PR on the back. Maybe show with a sub.

Hi All,

I'm from Canada and have been doing DIY for the past 10 years. I'd like to crash your event but can't bring anything because I do not want any trouble at the border. Would I be able to just show up, listen and chat at this event? Its one of the only places within driving distance for me .

Cheers,

P.S. All your projects look fantastic!
