Houston DIY Home Theater Group?
 

I have an idea.

It seems there are quite a few DIYers on this site from the Houston area. I wonder if there would be enough interest to start a Houston DIY Speaker / Home Theater Group. What I'm thinking about is a quarterly or monthly meeting at members' homes around the area to screen a recent DVD release on their HT, demonstrations of different DIY speakers and subwoofers, and talks about designing and building techniques. I guess it would be like an extension of the HTS message board, only we'd get to see and hear what everyone is talking about.

Just with the number of Houston guys I see posting here, we would have enough to get started. I could also see a lot of cross interest being generated in the woodworking-enthusiast community. The local activities would then feed back into HTS board discussions.

So, what do you think? Meeting frequency, topics, venues, etc...

I think it's a great idea...you can count me in.

Sounds fun. An emphasis on DIY would be great.

Carl out in Beaumont might be interested too. He has a great setup.

My house is tiny (2000 sf), but I'd love to have some people over after the 1st of the year. I think I can hose out the contruction debris by then. :) Maybe I can figure out REW by then and have the IB dialed in.

For Carl in Beaumont, lvisneau's friend, and any other interested DIYers, I'd encourage you to weigh in on this thread -- to improve content and to get a head-count. Also, there was some question about whether to post this message where there's high Houston traffic -- Soundsplinter forum -- or in a more general section where like DIY speaker or DIY Sub. Since we can't cross post in multiple threads at once, should we move this thread? No matter if we move it or not, I'll rely on you guys to keep an eye out for other Houston posters in other areas and spread the word.

Also, is there any interest in getting together between Thanksgiving and Christmas?

You can count me in also. I think it'll be a lot of fun, but man, I can just feel the horrible influence that this is going to have on me and my wallet. Wifey will not be happy.:devil:

I'm off for a week after tomorrow. Also, a couple of weekends between then and Christmas...after that, I'll be working a turnaround for a couple of months and will be completely out of contact until the end of February - the lovely life of a Refinery Operator.

I'm a couple of blocks N. of Pearland High off Pearland Pkwy and John Lizer Blvd, so I'm pretty accessible. I know of 5 other HT set ups in my neighborhood; we could do a block walk and hit them all with a little notice.

Anyway, I'm open for a get together between the Holiday's and eager to see what other options are out there for set ups. Hit me up when you're ready.

We have a good group of Texans at the Shack... I suppose I'll have to make another trip to Texas next summer. :nerd:

Not a builder myself, but I’d be interested in seeing what others had done.
