Jim,
     It will be another couple of weeks before I know what box dimensions that kids have come up with.  They got their woofer TS parameters about three weeks ago, and got the tweeters last week.  Boxes are due the first week of April.  But I have no idea which project will be chosen as this years winner until the first week of May.  Can we cut and apply the felt at the Lone Star Audio Fest?  I can bring my Clio unit and we can take the measurements there.
     However, we can use last year's winner.  I can get you the dimensions for it in a day or two.

Scott, how are those drivers working out for you?

Yes, the Clio is one of the better professional measuring systems.  Ours is an older version, but it still does the job.  It's a bit of a pain to set up, so I'll set up the room for listening first, and measuring second.  I should have it ready to go an hour or so after we can get into the room.  As far as frequency, we can measure down to 10 Hz but loose accuracy below 200.  We can adjust the time increment to whatever works, usually 3 to 4 ms.
Thanks, Scott.  Just hit me with the measurements as soon as you can.  If you have questions let me know at your earliest convenience.  Thanks.  Look forward to meeting you.

Several kids are using them in various combinations.  The crossover work really starts up next week so we will see how they come together.  I know that one group is using 8 of them- so there are a lot of combinations that they could come up with, 2 way, three way, 2.5, etc.  Success or failure is usually in attention to the little things.   Hopefully, I'll have measurements before the week is out.

I know where you bro's will be eating one night of the event but on another nite I suggest that you pile into a car and head to the Stockyards area in Fort Worth and hang at Joe T. Garcia's.  Been there since the 40's in a clapboard house but with newer rooms added and serving the same "dinner" all along.  That's what you want, don't worry.  Warning- the margarita's are stout (forget the frozen variety) and made with quality ingredients.  Muy delicioso.

Just a reminder to anybody who's planning to get a room: You must book your room by April 30th to get the $99/nite rate.

It will be good to meet all of you and listen to your respective rigs.  I wish I was going to be there Friday, but funds at this point are short, so I most likely won't be there till Sat. around noon or so. 

On the flip side, is anyone that is not a vendor bringing any used gear to sell (we talked about a swap meet room for the last LSAF but it didn't materialize)?  I don't mean to step on any of the vendors toes here, but I've got an AbraxasAudio amp I'd like to part with and would prefer to do it in person and not have to ship it.

I have family in from out of town, so will be staying home this year.

Will make plans for next year so I can come.

Really going to miss seeing the student project that Scott is bringing.  Hope someone takes lots of pictures.

At least there is an open room at the Embassy Suites if someone needs one.

Take care, my friend.

I'm sorry that you can't make it, but family always comes first.  I'll take lots of photos and post them.  I am really eager to hear how these top projects stack up against the other DIY'ers and even the pros that are going to display.
