Ed,

Don't you like it when a plan comes together?


Don's website includes links to his major papers and details about him:

Welcome to the official website of D.B.Keele

His latest major constant beamwidth technology (CBT) paper published by AES is:

http://www.xlrtechs.com/dbkeele.com/...0Paper%205.pdf

and a picture of Don and his array:

http://www.linkwitzlab.com/images/ph...eele_cbt-a.jpg

His 2010 AES Boston presentation in January is outlined at:

AES Section Meeting Reports: Boston - January 14, 2010

The Boston viewgraphs are linked at:

http://www.linkwitzlab.com/Keele%20-...4,%202010).pdf

and video presentation at:

MobileMe

Dr. Linkwitz has some comments about CBT technology at:

Linkwitz-Links

You might chose to view the viewgraphs and video together for full impact of video and audio together.

Marshall Kay (Audio Artistry) and Don have recently worked together on a CBT array which Marshall will bring to Dayton. I'm sure that the Dayton attendees would find the CBT technology to be of great interest.

Should be a lot of fun.

Jim

I see Peavey, Crown, & NTE are going to be there. I already know what their stuff sounds like. Any chance anybody is going to demo a full range speaker there? I don't need to hear anymore car trunk buzz tubes. (the competition) I'd like to see what all the noise is about. Dayton has some cool stuff to do besides a show. The music shops around here have 1. 2 woofers 2. 4 woofers 3. a 2 way speaker with a woofer and a horn.4. a Bose with a lot of little speakers pretending to be a big one. And Best Buy demos in a warehouse, which is useless. Ed, are you the guy that sells used amps in Winchester Ky? It is just a tiny bit too far from Kentuckiana to save any money on them.

indianajo,

There are likely to be ~30 or more pairs of speakers in the competition...home audio. I can't guess on the auto comp as I don't participate in that.

I don't sell amps. Winchester isn't far from here. I'd like to find out more about his offerings.

Well I'll be there for sure, as I am one of the speaker contest judges.

Anything you guys want me to look out for?

Wow, those are interesting. Pano, hope you'll tell us if those line arrays are sounding anything like horns. I understand the claim is replacing them..

CBT is the real deal. If you get a chance to attend one of Don Keele's presentations, you should.
