Getting ready for LSAF 2023 demo room
« on: May 10, 2023, 02:52:29 AM »
Have the first of two 6ft x 4ft acoustic diffusor walls test fitted with the P.I. Audio Group diffusor panels made by Igor.  These are portable for setting up demo rooms.

These are for the front wall, with GIK absorber panels for the side walls and bass traps for the corners.  Will experiment with the room and measurements when I get there.

The panels can be painted most colors.  Nice for working with existing room colors to match.

I'm getting excited about it.  Haven't been to an audio show since well before Covid.

Have not been to LSAF in more than a decade. 

Will be interesting to see the new venue and what it holds acoustically.  Bringing lots of room tuning gear to see what can be done and CLIO Pocket to make measurements. 

This should be fun! :)

Dave,
Once I know what room, will let you know.

Hope to arrive Wednesday and be ready for Thursday morning.  You may recognize the room treatments! :)

I need some brisket! :)

The acoustic walls are painted and ready for the panels to be installed.

The LSAF 2023 system is up and running playing music.  Need to work the new sub drivers in the two 3x12 H-Frame OB stacks.

T-12 days to departure.

Have a Transit style van rental to take for the trip.  Used one before going to CAF 2018 and like how it drives and pretty comfortable.  Gets decent mileage as well.

The last pair of Neutrik Speakon connectors for the servo subs is ready to wire up and install in the OB H-Frame modules.  Then test out the two 3x12 servo sub stacks.  Will be time for some listening to get the sub drivers moving.  Might be time for some Saint-Saen's Symphony #3!  :)

The van is packed and fueled up.  Time for a road trip!

Depart today for Dallas TX.  Hope to be there Wednesday for getting the room for the LSAF2023 show.  Setup on Thursday.

Hope to see folks there for some music listening to the Magnetar II speaker system with the Danville Signal dspNexus 2x8 DSP processor, Orchard Audio Starkrimson Monoblock amps, and 3x12 OB H-Frame GR-Research servo subs with the Rythmik Audio A370XLR3 servo amps. 

The system sounded really good before pack-up!
