Winter DIY OTTAWA MEET
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello Gents.

This is the first post for the formation of the winter DIY Ottawa meet.

We had a great meeting today. Some new gentlemen and some old.

A great deal was discussed so some of it can be started off with a proposed date.

Wish I could have made it to the lunch. Anything else that was discussed? Will the venue be the same as the previous place? I'd be interested in coming to the meet, and could bring along a few speakers as well. I'll save the date.

As January is so far away, I'm open for any date. The 23rd works for me. I might even be finished my simple DAC by then.

Awe heck look at it this way. January now has purpose a meaning! LOL

It gives some of us time to get some things finished.

And it gives others some time to want to get things finished. So it is a win win all the way around!

OK Folks, the Ottawa Winter DIY Meet is a go for Sunday January 23rd 2011 at The General Burns Community Centre.

It is the same location we used for our first meet back in June 2010. For those that were not there in June (or can't remember how to get back there), the address is 86 Argue Dr. It is located in the Fisher Glen area. It can be accessed from Fisher Ave. via Normandy Cres. or from Meadowlands Dr. E. via Chesterton Dr. to Charkay St. to Seymour Ave.

We are asking that each participant donates $10 toward the cost of the hall rental. Any surplus will be used for future events.

We have members that have offered to bring and operate measuring gear. Because the set up and taking of actual measurements can be a time consuming process we have the option of using the hall on the Saturday prior (22nd) also. In order to get a handle on whether we would need/like to make this a two day event I'm starting a list.

Please let us know, by posting in this thread as soon as possible, the following:

1. if you plan to attend,

2. what gear you would like to demo

3. if you would like to be involved in measuring any gear

I will update the list as people post.

Even if you have nothing to demo, come on out. Just bring your enthusiasm for DIY. That's good enough. If you have a desire to hear something specific, mention it. There may be someone that can bring that type of gear. If you have some gear you would like an opinion on, bring it. Even if it is commercial but you're looking to update/rebuild/improve it. You most likely will find an opinion or two that may prove useful.

I would like to see participation for this meet double the first one. We have lot's of room. We only used half of it last time!

I'll start.

The List

1. Rick (ripcard)---Bringing CSS Quartet 15 Sub-woofer, DSPeaker Anti-Mode 8033 (EQ for subs) and home built 8" Vifa two-way vented speakers of unknown origin for evaluation.
Would like to measure sub-woofer.

mwmkravchenko 15th December 2010 01:08 AM

CBT line array with integrated dual 8" front loaded horn

4, count them 4 subwoofers.
All with the same driver complement 2 pcs Exodus Audio Anarchy 6 1/2"

You guys get to listen to them all and judge for yourselves what is what.
