I would like to bring my subwoofer, it is a horn molded under a floor, made of solid concrete.

Hmmm... Speaking seriously, I can put my new powered speakers in Nissan Armada. They are phased arrays with horn woofers, made for concerts.

I'd love to, but we'll be taking the bus thru Seattle. The Fonkens aren't huge, but I don't think they'd be easy to carry on the bus. =)

I did think about it - I really did! But I just hate to carry stuff. Don't know how my better half would take to it, either.

Default Back for the Contest.

Thanks guys for a great get together. Very well run, very professional and fun.

Congrates to all the winners and to all the builders.
The only loser was the poor KT88 tube in room 2.


Other audio clubs should take note of this format. It's very fair and informative.

Kind words Mike, I hope that you had a good time

We have attempted to put together the best, most unbiased Contest of it's kind. The basic premise of the Contest is to present the DIY speakerbuilder with the oppurtunity to have his project evaluated under strict guidelines that prevent anything other than the sound of the entry from influencing the outcome.

"The Puget Sound! DIY Speaker Contest" is now over and the results have been tabulated. I'll be announcing the results in the next day or two, but because of concerns I have, upon reviewing the actual evaluation sheets this evening, there may be a couple of changes in the standings.

I'm pretty tired this evening, so I need to look at this tomorrow, performing the analysis when my mind is a bit rested. Until then, any comments on the overall Contest results are premature, other than to say that the general quality of the entries has once again risen.

Best Regards,
TerryO
