Less than 6 months to Carverfest 2012

Post by hewlew1 » Thu Mar 22, 2012 8:59 pm

My wife and I might be in the Gatlinburg area during this event. I am trying to coax her to possibly head out their to hang with everyone for an evening.

No way I am getting more out of her currently lol.....

This is all assuming I am actually healthy enough for travel lol.......

If you mean me george I will be there. But I had wanted to build a pair of speaks from scratch to bring along. Something similar to polks but my goal was to do it as cheaply as possible as far as the components go just to fuck around and see how good or bad they would sound. I am talking (8) 6-1/2 mid woofers per box along with 4 tweeters per box and 2 passives in each box. This was my attemp to copy the SDA-SRS line of polks and I purchased the drivers before I was lucky enough to buy a pair. I think Angelo will be there as well .I believe he has certain things he may be trying to construct to bring along as well and is not sure he will pull that off either.

Wow...Time fly's by fast. I guess Tom and James need to start up the CF threads again and start seeing who will be staying and how long!

Oh, dang.

Looks like I will actually have to get off my behind and start getting the plans together for this year's 'fest. Most all of the work so far this year has been behind the scenes. Time to start the yearly ritual....Expect some threads and posts this weekend!

sorry for any confusion as i was refering to time running out on my 6 amp build and at least another 3-5 speakers to put up in the cabin. at the very least i hope to have a two channel with the sonic frontier, baby tube amp that is built, maybe even another one so i can mono them on my carverfest speakers i brought last year. i have been a slacker on my build to say the least.
