    Is Brian King still around? I know he was in the SD area.

      I'm barely around. Working 60 hours a week doesn't leave much time for my hobbies unfortunately. PM me gmed.

        I live in Carlsbad and am new to this hobby. I am no where near being able to design my own speakers but I am on my third build.

        I am currently building a pair of Statement Monitors using Black Galaxy granite and would really appreciate an experienced set of ears to evaluate them. If anyone in the SD area would be willing I would be happy to bring them to you.

          I live in Temecula 50 miles north of downtown San Diego. I have built the Ekta by Troels, ZDT3 center and ZMV 5 by Zaph, and the RM6K kite from Fountek. I am currently trying to build a TM tower using SS9700 with waveguide and SS 6.5 discovery midwoofer. I am still trying to figure out in-box measurement of the drivers and come up with something usable for the crossover design. I use ARTA, HOLM , and PCD because they are free.

            Will this be your first attempt at designing a speaker?

            I have also built some Zaph designs, the ZA5.2TM for rear surrounds and the
            ZA5.3MTM center. Also have built the Seas Idunns. All came with assembled crossovers. My current build is a pair of Statement Monitors. I have to assemble the crossovers and it will be a bit of a challenge for me. Good thing there are so many knowledgeable folks here willing to help a newbie along!

              Yes, its my first attempt. I am using drivers that would give me a great amount of success. And it's a TM which should make the crossover design less complex.

                    I'm in Cardiff! I can't say I'm good at designing but I'm good at listening!

                      Haha, not at all G

                      I'm more with Brian, can't design to save my life, but I am quite adept at reproducing proven designs.

                        I should have my Monitors completed next weekend and want to have some time to break them in, maybe we can arrange a meeting in a couple of weeks and I will bring them along. I would host at my place if the acoustics were not so bad. I have no problem going to either Cardiff or La Mesa if one of you is up to hosting.
                        Anyone interested?

                          I would love to hear them
                          My place is not one to audition in however, way too small. These aren't even for me (for a friend in a much larger place aka not my 1br apt) haha
