Will anyone be bringing testing equipment for FR, CSD, etc? I would be very curious to finally find out just how my speaker are performing.

You really don't need to bring anything except yourself and some enthusiasm!
One of the best things about these types of meets is just getting to know people and sharing ideas. For whatever reason, the Northwest has a large number of Audio "Heavy Hitter's", amateur as well as pro's. All in all, it's very friendly and low key.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Hi,

At our speaker contests, which are held on alternate years from the DIY Meets, we're set up for taking FR and impedance measurements. I can ask around, but this is really just more of a "show and tell" meet. You may, however, meet someone there that would be willing to do some measurements at a later date.

What type of speakers do you have?

Best Regards,
TerryO

I'm not so much interested in FR/Imp measurements as much as I am meeting fellow DIY'ers and audio fans. As for speakers; Encores, Statement monitors, a 2-way bookshelf of my own design based on 2" and 4" Tymphany buy-outs, and am working on a 2-way TL based on RS150 and Vifa BC25SC06. Waiting for fall, I have a complete set driver/x-overs, cabinet panels and veneers for Statements.

Thanks Terry, that might very well suffice. I was thinking of asking around on the forums but this will be a better opportunity to meet someone willing to help. In any case, I have some simple but IMO elegant double bass reflex speakers built around the Tang Band W5 full range driver.

Ok Folks,

I'm going to kick this into gear and we'll be adding additional information and getting the word out from now on. The event will have the doors opening at around 9:30 AM. Early birds will be drafted to help set up...after all this is a DIY event!

Best Regards,
Terry

I just realized that I haven't included an address for the location of the meet.

The DIY Meet will be held in the basement of the Church and is accessed from the lower parking lot. It's not too hard to find. The meeting will officially start at 9:30 am. BTW: It's free to the public.

Here's the address:

Mercer Island Congregational Church (in the basement)
4545 Island Crest Way
Mercer Island, WA 98040

Best Regards,
Terry

I'd appreciate the help. There's not a whole lot to it, but extra hands do make it go faster.

Best Regards,
Terry

Default 2 weeks from now

Another reminder. The DIY Meet is 2 weeks from today!
If you intend to bring stand mounted speakers you may want to bring the stands as well, although we may be able to cobble something together at the meet, however it may be less than optimal.

If you're planning on attending and especially if you will be bringing something, if you would raise your hand and let me know what your project(s) consists of, it would be appreciated and will make planning a little less hectic.

Hope you can make it!

Best Regards,
Terry
