If any of yall are in the area, you should go! Looks like there are plenty of forum people to meet and a few speakers and subs to check out. I'd go if it was in DFW
That is correct, Gorb. I've met most of these guys. They are a great group of enthusiasts who are really into the hobby, and this is a good opportunity for someone to hear new gear.

i just checked your system profile...

Do you have your LMS-5400 in sealed boxes now? Is that what you are using in your gjallarhorn project?

Would you be interested in doing a little shootout at your place or mine or trading subs for a short while? I have a couple of JTR Captivators and would like compare them more extensively with the LMS-5400. I bought four sealed 3.5' cubic foot cabinets from a guy on avsforum for a song and am trying to determine if four LMS-5400 drivers will make me happier than my two ported Captivators. (which definately make me happy!) I'm traditionally a quality ported sub fan, but I do like to listen to gear. I think many say it would take at least four to match the Caps around port tune. It's either put four LMS-5400's in the cabs and sell the caps, or put four dayton 18's in the cabs and use them nearfield or in the four corners of the room in tandem with the caps for just additional smoothing. Just toying with ideas at this stage.

my motto:
--- have subs, will travel...
You bet, I am in! I have two that are sealed, but the g-horn project begins Thursday. I'll be there for the shoot out Saturday and we can make a game plan.

I had big plans for ported for the Ultras, but the output of the horns sold me. I don't think 2 sealed does it for me. I am a ported guy too.

I really wish I could attend this. I will be moving back to overland park in a year so maybe I can go next year?


I hope all of you have a blast at this gtg

Let's make this happen. carp is loaning me four SI 18's in sealed cabs today. I'll have the two captivators. Would you be able to do a little informal taste test shootout with a few people between the LMS-5400 Ultras, the SI and the caps on Saturday night or even Sunday?

Man...!!! You men are onto something great, I have to do something about Maine AV folks and I know they are here. We are not organized like you all are!!!
Aside: A friend of mine went to Osteo Med School in Kansas City I keep hearing about the "Nite-Clubs in Kansas City" and great music. Seems only right the AV equipment folks know how to appreciate the tunes. Sounds right. Have Fun and Play Safe
Regards

We believe everything we tell ourselves..., don't we??

Re: 2nd Annual Kansas City Speaker G2G and BBQ in the Park - Saturday October 19, 2013.

just finished the day - had a great time - hope to see some more of you next year!

For speakers there were:

Barefoot Micromain27 (active full range speakers)
Boston (model?)
Crystal Acoustic TX-T2SE
JTR 212HT
Mackie SRM450 v1 active monitors
Tekton Pendragons


For subs there were:

JTR Captivators
THT Tuba (low profile)
T48 sub


We probably had close to 20 people in and out through the day. Listened to quite a few different types of music and tried to give each speaker a bit of time in the limelight. Using a fast switching mechanism made out of simple single throw, double poll switches we could quickly switch between four speakers at a time. Level matching wasn't manageable this way - but it was an informal g2g anyway. dougc brought quite a bit of gear including a keg of Shocktop. Thanks for both attending and bringing so much stuff Doug! I enjoyed meeting you today!

I'll post a video link later today when I get it put together with some footage and pictures.

Re: 2nd Annual Kansas City Speaker G2G and BBQ in the Park - Saturday October 19, 2013.

This was a great event on a beautiful day in an awesome venue. There aren't too many places around like the old stone shelters in Swope Park. This proved to me that I need to upgrade my mains to something with larger mid-bass to keep up with my subs. I really enjoyed the punch of the Neosis and Pendragons. I'm back and forth with building a "traditional" speaker such as the Statement tower and one of the Seos designs using the TMM AE TD12x and SEOS 12 and Denovo DNA360. The Captivator subs are the best commercial subs I have heard so far. I wish I would have been there to hear the Orbit Shifters when they were in town for a visit.

Archaea, we should build a "test" enclosure using one of the LMS-U in a ported enclosure for your HT when we test them in your sealed boxes for the upcoming shootout. 3 sheets of MDF ought to do it. We already have one modeled for 16hz. We could measure one of each in your HT: sealed LMS-U, ported LMS-U, G-horn, Cap, sealed Si, ported Si. Then double up the Ultras in your sealed cabs, 2 si, 2 caps, then the two Ultras against the 4 si.
