Default "The Puget Sound" Speaker Contest

Hi,
The Pacific Northwest Audio Society is again sponsoring "The Puget Sound" Speaker Contest. Rather than burn up bandwidth, I'd like to direct you to the contest website.

The URL is: www.thepugetsound.iwarp.com

This year it is being held August 28th on Mercer Island, which is about six miles East of Seattle on I-90.

Best Regards,
TerryO

I was at your first speaker contest. I got to listen to one pair of speakers, the winners. I think it would be nice to let everyone listen to all the speakers.

I'm not sure when you arrived during the last contest, the fella that won arrived later in the day, IIRC. I know that several of the contestants had their speakers playing earlier in the day and Dr. Ed West had his DSP crossover demo going most of the day. However we will work to ensure that at least some of the entries are available for listening at all times, that's the fun part as far as I'm concerned and I didn't get to listen to many of them either!

Best Regards,
TerryO

Terry,

How late will the event go? How will you determine the order?

I would like to show a pair of speakers for Rick Craig but I cannot afford to be gone till late afternoon. To keep my spouce happy, I would like to arrive at 9am and be done by 2pm.

Thanks,

Al

Al,
There isn't any set order as to which catagory will be judged first, second, etc. We're not sure as to how many entries will be in any given catagory, the sole requirement is that all must be judged as a group. I will try to see that your group is judged as early as possible, domestic tranquility is a notable goal in and of itself:^)
If you can, just email me and let me know which catagory your entry will be in and I'll put your request at the top.
Hope to see you there,
TerryO

Terry,

Rick Craig sent in the registration for his SA-1 speakers that I will be bringing for him. Can you verify that you got the information? Which category is he entered? Can I still go first or early?

Thanks,

Al

What, no pics?

One of my favorites was Aaron's 'power pots'.

Front view - that's a premade round from Home Depot (or Lowes).

And the side view. Plastic flower pot, not a large CRT tube. Vented enclosure with the tube exiting the rear.

The "Power Pots" are pretty unusual, and sound great as well. Aaron has reworked these several times and each time they got even better. I believe that his original design criteria was that all componets had to be what he already had on hand.
He placed 2nd in the under $200 2-way class, just trailing Dave Rosgaard in points.

Best Regards,
TerryO
