A month's gone by and no posts about BA-2012...

No news from me, but here's some chatter. Last year I bought a rough 2-way (DXT tweeter and ZA14 woofer). I've redesigned the crossover and will bring it in a finished state. I will probably also bring a new (possibly rough) ScanSpeak 2-way (HDS discovery tweeter and 15W Revelator woofer).

This SS 2-way will be converted to an active 3-way; but I doubt in time for BAF. So it's premier will be at your Davis event!

Cool. Looking forward to seeing you and your redesigned ZA14-DXT project next month! I should at least have an active 3-way, done "on the cheap" (inexpensive cabinet, drivers, and amps) but using a MiniDSP 4x10 DSP crossover.

Since you mentioned it - the NC DIY AUDIO GROUP event might take place in Palo Alto this spring instead of Davis, probably in April sometime. Just putting a little plug for it in here, in case some Bay Area folks are reading this... spread the word to all the speaker builders!

OK, suddenly swamped with work for the last month, Of course...

I have a list of volunteers , but any more are always welcome.
Mention it here or PM me.

I have an idea. We worked out a bunch of systems for the rooms last year but I had to go home to get some missing stuff and when I came back everyone had just thrown their stuff together. Which was great but maybe the systems would have been better?

I'll post a link and people can tell me if they want to bring the same stuff this year but exhibit it as we planned or if they have different stuff

Charlie, since you hate that room you can have another this year! Wouldn't mind hearing your speaks again!

Mark

More than happy to volunteer again this year (now with one year under my belt).

Can pick-up some stuff the night before if it means you dont have to leave again.

Thanks

I thought you left the carefully prepared room assignment sheet at home last year...

No, no, "hate" is way too strong a word... alas, several of the rooms have support posts that happen to be in an inconvenient location for speaker setup... but the venue is what it is. You just have to make the best of it. I'd be happy to be in the same room as last time, actually.

I will not be bringing the monstrosities that I did last year! I WILL be bringing a couple of recent demo speaker projects and I'm hoping/planning on having a computer set up to demonstrate my DIY active crossover design software, a.k.a. "ACD", along with a MiniDSP 4x10 crossover to drive them. Here's a link to the software for anyone who might be interested:

OK, well new stuff is better. Maybe I'm fooling myself but maybe I can get an idea of how stuff sounds now, knowing that thye'll sound a lot better elsewhere. I liked your "monster" a lot!
I'm getting a couple of dozen MORE moving blankets. Eventually everything in the rooms will be covered. We'll have to hand out blankets a the door to wrap yourself in!
