Hi Matt,

It's really too bad I won't be able to go again this year, because last time was really great fun and I learned more in one day than I had in months!

If I had been able to go to the event I would have been excited to demonstrate my active Kit281 system (I recently designed a PCB for it and I'm almost done building it up) which I am trying to make available to everyone else in the community... there's been some interest in it, it sounds really good, and it only costs about $200 to build one. The design increases the steepness of the filters by 12db/oct, lowers the frequency to 1.9KHz, and uses class A JFET buffers instead of op amps. With the Holton sym amps and a Zen for the tweeter it was starting to change the already good Kit281s into something extraordinary. Now that I am at college I went back to the regular Kit281s (for now) and it sounds kind of dull, grainy and muddy. Maybe you could tell the DIY crew about this and I will send out my prototype to other owners soon?

What speakers are you bringing?

Shame you can't go, this is turning out to be a fine show I think. I'm bringing my WWMT's dayton 7" aluminums, audax am130z2 mid and xt tweets, speaker cables, and bridgeclone monoblocks Should be fun.

Your kit sounds interesting. Too bad Holton is gone from this planet again.

Just got back from DIY 2004

What a great time! I learned more in the one day at the show I could have after months of internet research. Thanks Matt for taking the time to put my speakers on the analyzer and all the suggestions I got to improve our sub $300 speaker project. If anybody remembers we had the speakers that looked better than they sounded

I hope to make it to the Ohio show and bring down our $2,000 + no holds bared project that we have been working on for the past year and our Fostex full range folded horn project.

Great, I can't wait to see the pictures and descriptions. I actually have a few things I wish I could say to Pjay, like for example, the speakers we were talking about using the raffled-off PE 7" woofers for last year, did become a reality and my friend Jared has them in his dorm room in Cedarville, Ohio.
