Me and 2 other guys from our shop in Bonita Springs are coming out as well. I look forward to hearing some good cars and learning some too! We probably won't stay too late as we are driving back tomorrow night as well.

It's 12:30 AM and I'm still burning discs like crazy. Managed to squeeze 30 tracks in. VERY eclectic stuff, all types of genres. Hope I can burn enough copies to go around....

Any chance you'd be willing to share your track list and make the PPT available to download for a west coast GTG?

Hope folks don't mind me nosing in on their application of their new knowledge in their car. Took my Fiesta to spend 1/3 the cost in gas to get here from the ATL then was greeted by the most expensive tolls I've ever seen in my life when I got around Orlando. Duh fuck?

I hate myself for not being able to make it but I think I have a cool idea/favor to ask. Would it be possible for someone to record the tuning sessions (and other interesting stuff) and up them to YouTube? Pretty please... :D

I think you should send a cab for your wife at the airport. She's understand, right? ;)

Sorry we left early Neil_J had good time the short time we were there. I wouldn't mind looking at your power point if you were OK with sending it.

Had a great time @ the gtg. Thanks Neil J for the lesson in tuning I really appreciate it. I got to meet some cool people and listen to some nice cars. Now my brain is on overload!

So I don't know about everyone else, but I thought this was a pretty awesome meet. Met a lot of new people like James and Juan and David. Heard some fantastic cars (my favorites were David's BMW SUV with the flangeless L3SE's and the Morel sub, and Lionel's 1st Gen Mini). For install though, Dustin's Taurus was pretty amazing in person, but that goes without saying.

As for the tuning workshop, it didn't go 100% like I expected since Steve got held up, and I would have liked to do some hands-on stuff but I was trying to read the crowd and it looked like everyone was ready to go home after two hours of powerpoint slides. I'm still extending out the offer for anyone that would like any extra help tuning or understanding some of the principles and techniques that I went over, just PM me, if I can't answer your question or help out in anyway, I can get you in touch with someone that can.

For anyone that didn't get the SQ CD or would like a copy of the powerpoint, PM me your email address. I'll attach to the thread at some point, but I'd like to go back and clean it up a bit before putting it out to the public. I've got five of the CD's left, I'd like to send one to Erin if he's interested and one to copter who requested one for the west coast G2G. But I can burn more and send them out free of charge for anyone that would like one.

For anyone that got the CD and thought my choice of music is a little weird... Well yea. I was trying to get people out of their comfort zones. The idea was to get a collection of all sorts of instruments, male vocals, female vocals, dynamic ranges, recording styles, genres, from the last 30 years or so. Track 6 has Tuvan throat singing techniques, where the vocalist can produce multiple pitches simultaneously over a fundamental pitch. Track 14 was done by Slam Stewart, a jazz bass player that would bow his double bass and simultaneously sing or hum an octave higher. I think both of these tracks can show weakness in the midbass to midrange transition in certain setups. The Bjork song, track 19, will show your width boundaries pretty well, you have Bjork at stage left, and Bjork at stage right. There are a lot of subtleties if you're listing to certain tracks. In the Beethoven Adiagio Sostenuto, if you listen carefully, you can hear the pianist breathing. Tracks 7 and 8 featured the London Symphany Orchestra and were composed by a very brilliant British Indian musician. The bluegrass song on track 23 is great because you've got guitar, banjo, upright bass, and violin/fiddle all over the soundstage. I've got several different masterings of several of these songs, and the most "audiophile" ones were selected for this CD. Admittedly a few came from amazon mp3 but they were all over 256 kbps which is about the point where it's hard to differentiate between that and the uncompressed version. But you can decide for yourself if it sounds good to your ears :D

Oh. And I said there was a prize for the person who drove the furthest. I have a set of Vifa XT25's for anyone that wants to claim them.

Hmmm... I drove from Marietta, GA on Friday and stayed at a hotel where the water fixtures were not seemingly attached to anything so they moved all over the place. It was $33 a night... less than a Motel 6. Do I win? :p

Apparently Russ found a folding chair in his shop, is anyone missing one?

I got a lot of requests to post the Powerpoint from the tuning work shop. I cleaned it up a bit, but there was still a lot of stuff we went over that wasn't covered in the slides.

Edit: Too big to attach to the thread. I'll find a place to get it uploaded tomorrow hopefully. I pay for Photobucket but they don't accept PDF as a filetype :mean: If anyone has a dropbox or other file hosting service, drop me a PM.
