Posts about the new meeting for the coming year can be made here.

Be there or be square ( Oh do you have to be old enough to know what that means!)

I spoke at length with Pierre right after the last get together and we agreed on a few ideas to maybe make the event even better.

Will bring white boards and flow charts (not) to the lunch (but will table ideas)

Any time sounds good but I really enjoyed getting together on the cold nasty days last year. It's a great break.

Grant.

Sorta relevant question - has anyone built frugalhorns ? I'm thinking of building a pair of XL's and was hoping to do a listen.

Any time after Jan 7th is good with me, but I do vote for warmer months. Everything I have is built already.

Nice to see more members calling in.

There are many more that have not given their availability.

Everyone that knows a friend or member of the DIY community might do well to get out the call to arms.

Lets make this one one of the best.

That means we need as many people as possible.

You need not be building or bringing anything.

You need an interest in audio. We have a great core of people that have things both new and old that sound awesome.

If I am around I will be bringing some interesting toys.

As for horns.

There is a set of back loaded horns that will be coming.

And most likely a set of two way coaxial front loaded horns that will be coming.

Might cobble together another front loaded horn subwoofer to!

We haven't shook up the place for a year or so....

Looking forward to it Mark. I picked up a ClassD Audio 4 channel with 300 watts RMS per channel. I'm likin' it very much.

Have you got the horns veneered or are they "project level" still?

Grant.
