Hi Scott,
I'm afraid that I hadn't noticed your posting. I've been pretty busy getting ready for surgery to my wrist (torn ligaments) and I'm sorry that I wasn't more careful about looking in at the forum. The "Pungent Sound Audio Sorcerers" (I really like that one :mrgreen: ) meet the second Thursday of the month on Mercer Island at 7:30 pm. I don't have the address handy, but I'll post it tomorrow with more information on the "club" and the contest. The yearly membership dues are $60.00.

Best Regards,
Terry Olson

(Scott,
I just wanted to add that the link to the map below gives directions to where the Club meetings are held.)

Well, I'm back to confirm that the date of "The Puget Sound! DIY Speaker Contest" is set for Sept 6, 2008.
The format and everything should be much the same as the 2006 event.

**NOTE**
There *may* be a new category: "desktop/mini-mini monitor/computer speakers" for 3.5 inch drivers and under. However, this remains somewhat vague as to how it's to be structured it into the event, so for now it remains only a possibility.

The location of the event is again on Mercer Island. Here's a map and directions:

I hope to have updated information online soon, until then, or in addition to that, I'll post here in the forums.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Terry,
time and location look pretty good to me. I can perhaps pawn the twins off on my wife for the evening with small downside tradeoffs :? It would be interesting to meet some of the locals.

Can you post the rules? Are home made drivers acceptable or must the projects be built from commercial drivers?

Hang in there on the surgery!

Scooter (and anyone interested),

Here's the URL of the 2006 Contest Webpage, the rules, etc., should be pretty much the same as we have worked out most of the details, I think :roll:
Remember, this is the 2006 contest, so the date is not correct.
Anyhow here tiz...http://www.freewebs.com/thepugetsound/details.html

Best Regards,

Whoa,

Just to clarify a little further...
The 2006 info is just that, general info to give a better idea of what the contest consists of. Dan Wiggins, for example, will be in China at the time of the contest and John Nail has consented to do the measurements. None of the dates given are applicable to this year's contest.

Best Regards,
Terry Olson

Re: "The Puget Sound! diy speaker contest"
Sorry to take so long getting back to this thread, but I had surgery on my wrist on the 2nd of July and I've had trouble getting things done (even after they removed the cast )

I was going to try to get an updated website for the contest, but I'm just going to refer people to the 2006 site. The date, of course has changed, this years contest will be on September 6th. All the information on the 2006 website is correct except where dates are mentioned. If you have questions, post them on this thread and I'll do my best to answer them. Don't be shy, as there are probably others that may have the same question.
Tomorrow, I'll also try to give some info on how the contest is conducted and some of the general information from questions asked in previous years.

As of this evening, you have 50 days left to finalize and build that "dream speaker" for the contest!
So, take a look at the rules, etc., and start building.

Here's the URL:

Thanks Terry,
I had too much on my plate to go to the meeting this month. I'll try again next month.

I'm contemplating drivers for the speaker contest.

To Scott and All.
Just a reminder to all NW (or anyone else willing to travel) speaker builders:

As of tomorrow, you have 40 days to get those speakers ready for "The Puget Sound!"

If you're interested, read the rules that are linked in my previous posting and let us know you'd like to enter. The Link is to the 2006 Contest, so ignore the dates, the rest of the information is correct.

The date? It's Saturday, September 6, 2008 on Mercer Island. That's about 4 miles or so from Seattle on I-90. Start time is 9:00 am. :mrgreen:

Hope to see you there!

Best Regards,
TerryO
