  • I'd like to see a DIY event that includes more DIY building and measurement demos in addition to listening sessions on completed systems.   You probably wouldn't be able to set up a table saw or router table and start cutting out baffle boards, but there are certainly other less dangerous things that could be done.  Examples would be the Jeff Bagby seminar on PCD held in Kokomo a few years back.  Or the duratex demo done by Bryan a couple years ago.  Maybe we could have an experienced person demo how to do microphone measurements properly.  I certainly know how to screw them up; so maybe we could have someone show us what NOT to do when making measurements.

  • Can we upload PDF, zma, and frds yet?
     John H, thanks to JP I did get that email
  • Most venues and hotels have TV/audio, this could make video demo/instruction possible.
    ............. could you hum a few bars.
  • Definately would like to see more design focused materials i think it would inspire more confidence in people to build their own speakers. Ive done a few designs and the process is still fuzzy to me. 
  • I really enjoyed poweride's preamp build.  Personally, I'd like to see more 'simpler' builds like that, which an all thumbs nonelectrical minded person like me 'could' build, affordably, with great results.  Step by step, lots of pictures, and a bill of materials.

    The ability to create a poll would be good.

  • Organizing Group buys would be great. Ive heard a few people mention wanting to buy Inukes 3000dsp so that would be something i am up for. Im waiting for a coupon for some money off before ordering one.

    Sorry for my lack of participation, but I totally agree with you, Bill. Despite my absence I've been in touch with a couple folks regarding value-added presentations at our upcoming shows. The Iowa DIY survey confirmed exactly what you have proposed and we are on it!!

    Funny you mention that, but we are in talks with vendors about MAC discounts.  It's not with Behringer (yet) but we've got some other negotiations in the works.

  • Its funny we all keep building stuff but none of us needs a new set of speakers. Would be nice to save a bit if we are buying to build things just to bring to an event.

  • It would be great to have an indicator of where the members reside. Maybe a flag or something.

  • Maybe a measurement thread. A depository of graphs, T/S, FRD and ZMA files.......etc. Start where Zaph left off.
    ............. could you hum a few bars.
  • I like Gowa's idea.  Maybe add city/town since Canada, USA, and Mexico are so huge!

  •  I second the measurements things.... but I think there is already a category for it?
