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

Second annual Kansas City Swope Park speaker meet.

What: Speaker Meet in Swope Park of Kansas City. Hamburger, Brats, Hot Dogs, BBQ and fun. Feel free to bring your speakers or subwoofers to share demos and introduce yourself to other Kansas City A/V enthusiasts.

When: Saturday October 19th, 2013 starting at 10:30AM. (I'll be there early to setup - feel free to join me earlier if you like) -- we'll keep going as long as people want to hang around.

Where: Swope Park Shelter House #7 off of Oldham road.
Google Map View: --- look how isolated this place is!!!

Here’s a short video of last years fun!

This will be very casual -- no standardized music list - - - just whatever people want to demo. Bring your CDs and mp3 players, mp3s, flacs, whatever you want. Any and all music welcome – but keep the music clean because this is a family event and a public setting! It’s a chance for our wives and kids to interact and for the men to grill and talk audio!

I'll bring my Captivator Pro pair to cover sub duty, likely being powered by an IPR 7500. The mains will run off a pro amp as well - perhaps a Behringer Inuke DSP 3000. An Onkyo AVR will act as pre-amp/switching source. We'll run all the gear off a single shelter house 20amp electrical outlet – so newer, more energy efficient amps will be used where possible.

All attendees should volunteer a dish, pot luck style. The event will be family oriented – bring your wife/gf/family and kids if you like.

We'll barbecue hamburgers, brats and dogs, and just enjoy listening to some speakers and discussing the hobby. The park shelter house’s grill will be lit up and available if burgers or brats aren’t your think and you want to grill your own premium meats.

Please sound off on if you plan to attend, and what food you plan to bring.


The following people have expressed interest, and hope to attend:
  • carp
  • stitch1
  • randy bessinger
  • jedimastergrant
  • mrsmithers
  • luke kamp
  • archaea
  • scrappydue
  • thebean
  • dougc


Anyone from the audio/video community is welcome! Vendors feel free to contact me if you’d like to showcase any gear. Last year JTR Speakers submitted the Noesis 212HT for the event and carp fell in love (well honestly so did the rest of us), and carp ended up buying his set immediately after the event.

Bring yard games if you have them. I'll bring Bocce Ball. Other suggestions?

This park shelter is within minutes of the KC Zoo. If the family comes along and wants to go to the zoo for the afternoon - please feel that is an option as well.


Speakers to be auditioned:
  1. JTR Noesis 212HT (and 228HT if desired)
  2. Tekton Pendragons
  3. yours?
  4. ...getting confirmation on others???... (Klipsch Cornwalls, Crystal Acoustic THX, AES or SEOS DIY, whatever! etc)

I will try to finish a Gjallarhorn by then, but not sure I can make it happen in time. I have a couple of BFM subs I could bring if anyone has been wanting to hear one. I have the 30" t48 and 36" thtlp. I could bring the Zaph zdt3.5 center too. I would love to hear a SEOS design if anybody has them.

Yes MrSmithers who I believe is attending (but hasn't yet confirmed) has a couple variations of SEOS speakers. He lives in the Shawnee KS area.
I would love to hear the GJallarhorn! I know that's a beast to move at 300-400 lbs - but if it's possible YEAH we'd like to hear it! The THT's would be cool as well! I'm unfamiliar with the Zaph center - but anything you'd like to demo for other AV enthusiasts is welcome! We will hopefully have a Peavey IPR 7500 and minidsp to control the subs. The mains will probably be run off an Inuke DSP 3000. We can limit 'wattage' to the speakers with the Inuke's DSP to protect lower power handling speakers.

Oh man, I am on shift! I am going to see if I can get a vacation day for at least the first half.

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...

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
