Respect from me too. I also have no desire to interfere with anyone's plans for a bigger southern meetup. As some of you know, my ability to travel very far is limited by health and budget, both less than nominal. I'd like to attend anything I can, circumstances permitting.

EDIT: Looks like things are slow for that group at the moment.
You can always try, like I have, to help get things moving.

Says you.

On Audio Circle they talk about
Toronto Area Audio Society
the TAAS-The Toronto Area Audio Society.
I believe they have some "speaker only" events.

Just thought you might want to know. I'm thinking
of attending one or two myself, as I'm considering building
an open baffle system with some Gershman woofers I
have just sitting here.

We should make use of the resources we have and get something going....eh!

Default diyFEST

I still like to meet and greet fellow builders of what ever they have on the go. I am in a middle of a kitchen reno and time and money are short now but in the new year I want to build a pair of folded horns, maybe the Curvey Chans? Speakers are to my liking. Kits and things I would like to try out also.
So yea....it would be fun to get together.

Default Southern Ontario DIY Fest

Going through this thread some, I couldn't find out where it is that you are thinking of having the fest. That is a rather important bit of info for me, as travel distance would affect whether or not I can participate. I'm in Maine near the coast, pretty far up North.

I have a pair of very unusual floor-standing speakers that I would love to have fellow DIY- type individuals listen to and give me their reactions. There are probably about five people in my area that are audiophiles.

The further east the better....

Regards,
Pete

As I mentioned earlier, at the moment, I have zero DIY gear to speak of.

Don't know what kind of space requirements you folks are looking for, but it just hit me the other day
that if the group were small (say, less than 15 people) I could host here at our house.
That would be something I could offer.

I could throw in some basic refreshments, and could offer my McIntosh amp and an el-cheapo Sony CD
to use for demo-ing.

With a little coaxing, I could prolly get my friend's Apt Holman preamp to use for demo purposes as well.
