Tomorrow is going to be a hot one. Better than rain, I guess. Mike is setting up a 30 x 60 tarp to block the hot sun. But he suggested that everyone bring one of those collapsible chairs ( or two ) if you have one (unless you don't mind standing ) and beverages of your choice to stay hydrated. We will have a cooler or two of ice.

There will be some seating and benches but not enough for everyone at once. Drive safely everyone!

Two of those smaller boxes of ResoNix squares Nick and a professional ear. I literally just finished my tune but its got some issues associated with the driver locations.

Looking forward to experiencing some amazing sound systems. Haven't been active in car audio in so long so this GTG is a real treat.

Man what an awesome time! I can’t stop talking about the great systems I heard!
Thanks to the host for being so gracious! Very very nice of them to provide some space, food, PPE, and a sink to wash your hands!!!! The goats weren’t half bad either!

met some really cool people and some awesome sounding set ups.

Gives me motivation to get mine tuned and properly set up.
Can’t wait for the next meet!

Got a few pictures before I left. There were more cars than what is shown in these pictures but I got caught up in all the excitement and forgot to get better pictures before some people left. Everyone even received free ResoNix sound deadener and butyl rope from a very generous Nick Apicella.

Thank you to all that attended and contributed to this awesome event and especially to the hosts for making it all happen! I really enjoyed meeting you all and can’t believe how gracious everyone was. It’s great to be part of such a wonderful community and I can’t wait for the next meet. Hopefully I’ll even have something to show

First of all BIG shout out to the host, it couldn’t be a better location, all the cars were in the shade all day which makes for a nicer demo, I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to listen to most of the cars because I was busy giving demos but hopefully I’ll be more free at the next meet. It was an eventful day and I’m looking forward to the next one

Been 2 weeks since the GTG.
Let me know if this should be posted elsewhere.
I've since purchased a Umik- 1 and have a quick question one of you can hopefully answer. Is it necessary to connect the audio system to the laptop? If so then I have a real problem. I'm thinking I can just connect the umik -1 to the laptop and capture all the audio through the Umik- 1 which is connected to the laptop via usb. Is this how it's normally done?

I know that it's been a few weeks, but I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for making the journeys and attending our event. Special thanks to Mike (the host and Bethany his wife ) for allowing us to have the event on his property, and allow us the use of his facilities, and to John for leading up the safety protocol as we had a nice safe GTG.
I the final count was 20 vehicles and 27 attendees. Also thanks to John for remembering to take and post some photos!!! I forgot big time.


There was great weather, a little on the hot side, but there were lots of shade trees to hide and park under to cool things down a bit. During this event, I did not make the time to make the rounds and meet everybody and I wished that I listened to more systems. Although it seemed like most had fun at this event, this was my one regret.

It was great to see a bunch of new faces, and some of you brought goodies to eat and beverages to drink. Those of us that stayed till dusk were enjoying all the food and drinks. Rich, your taco pie was a hit for sure as everyone was mentioning it.

Thanks Nick, Kevin, and Ryan for making the long trip from NY and to Nick especially for bringing samples of Resonix to give out. I'm glad that Ryan did make the trip, as his system stood out to me as something that I've never heard before in either a vehicle or even from a home system. Kudos to your tuning skills. I had a conversation with some of the new guys that I learn something new from every car audio event or competition. After listening to Ryan's system, I find myself questioning if expensive cables or OpAmps are worth the extra expense, because it seems as if with the right tune, the benefits one gets by upgrading such things can be had just with tuning, it seems. Cables and OpAmps do make a difference for sure, but the difference they make may be able to be attained with the proper tune, I'm thinking??? Anyone that sat in Ryan's Camry I'm guessing would agree with me.

We had a really great laid back event again, I had a blast for sure. I always get nervous the day before and morning of this type of thing as unfortunately I happen to be a worrier. Everything came together without a hitch, except for a couple of tripping Circuit Breakers which happened from trying to run the Home Air Conditioner housed in the back of my van, which cools the front.
Eventually we found a 20 AMP dedicated circuit, which alleviated the tripping breaker issue, but I will be installing a couple of 20 AMP dedicated outside outlets as Mike and Bethany both were agreeable to hosting future events up to a couple times a year.

Thanks again everyone, for making this a very successful experience. I'm looking forward to having even more fun at the next one.

Gerald
