This has been a great Fest. Thank you to all that made it and hope to see more in 2011. Sorry to hear that some could not make it. It was great to see old friends and meet new one's.

Great systems were shared. New music was shared and good times were had.

The AL6's are fantastic and having Bob here is the cherry on the top.

Sincerely,
Roy

Glad you came Roy! Enjoy the new speakers! Eddie!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I was giving these at Carverfest. They said I do a lot for others and they wanted to do something for me and they gave me a set of AL 6's that have the plus plate on it. I would like get a AL III plate/crossover per Bob C.

Well that explains why you're looking for the AL-III crossovers.

Our mini wrap up of Carverfest:

First of all, let us start out by saying this was our first, but will definitely not be our last. It was a wonderful experience. Terri, Matt and I felt like we had known this group of Carverheads' for years. We were welcomed in like part of the family from day one. \:D/ Everyone was very accomadating and made even the first timers who virtually knew no one, feel right at home. :D The venue, people, food and stereo systems could not have been better.

We bounced from cabin to cabin listening to a vast array of very nice systems. Then the visitation was followed up by wonderful food. I won't list names because I might miss someone. But this collective group could open up a killer restaurant. Hell, their was even moonshine if anyone wanted to partake. A few did I might add. :shock:

For those who have not met Bob Carver, he is one of a kind. His stories are both fascinating and mesmerizing. How he funded his business from a financial point, what sparked some of his ideas, etc. Watching the Q & A's is a must. Thank you Bob!

I know this was a lot of work for several individuals. Terri, Matt and I want to thank each and every one of you. You know who you are and without the few of you this would not happen. We hope to see each and every one of you next year. For those of you that could not attend this year, make it happen next year.
A truly wonderful experience. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

If any of you are down Florida way, look us up. We are in Flagler Beach.


Don, Terri and Matt

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
