There will be a gathering of speaker heads and followers of other arcane arts related to the pursuit of audio excellence.

This gathering is to take place in Lexington, KY on Sunday, Nov. 25 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The event will take place in the KET (Kentucky Educational Television) studios located at 600 Cooper Drive.

Come one, come all

Post any questions here or contact our host, Clark Bradshaw, whose address may be found in the linked post.

Mongo will be there. He's working feverishly to complete the speakers to be formerly known as "ProC's". That is short for "Procrastinators"

I saw it on PE last week... I'm gonna try to be there, probably with some family in tow (we'll see)...

Just finished some sealed "thumper" 12" cabs for daughters' BFF's '03 Bonneville... they're out "testing" the trunk mounted subs as I type... oops! I think I just heard them pull in...

Looking forward to seeing the goodies...

I am told we have secured sponsorship commitments from Apex,Jr (gift certificates) and Eminence (Lab 12 subs & t-shirts) with prospects for more.
I spent time with Clark visiting the site yesterday. The facilities will certainly be adequate for our needs. There is interest in a measurement set-up for testing our speakers.
Anyone interested in attending should drop Clark or myself a note so that we can direct site-specific info to you.

Awesome... I'm an engineering student at the University of Kentucky who is interested in DIY audio. Do I need to sign up or anything, or can I just show up?

Thanks,

Be there, there are no formal sign-ups. The only costs talked about so far relate to a lunch (optional). You could bring peanut butter & jelly. Tell your friends. Watch the PE site for the latest info.

Damn.....I am going to be out of town....and I freaking live in Louisville.

My first chance to meet more audiophiles in the KY area.... may have to cut the family trip short.

If you aren't able to make it this time...think about next time...

Options include visits to:

Eminence, KY...they make Eminence loudspeakers there
Danville, KY...home of the new Allison Acoustics
Lexington, KY...home of Thiel Audio, and they have spoken of hosting a gathering in the future.

We're just gettin' started. Your input and participation are most welcome.

Ed,

Any chance we might see a DIY gathering for 2008? I would love to come this year.
