The excitement is killing me and I am not even attending.

Family commitments. Having a 7 year old son, 3 year old daughter and a poorly mother is not conducive to attending bake off's. All my spare time needs to be directed towards faffing about with speakers and the rest of my hifi. Maybe when I have finished my DIY journey I may have more time. Nearly went to Owston this year (only half an hour away) until I heard you were not going. Saying that the Uddersfeeled bake off's aren't that far from me either.

You would be among a bunch of friendly enthusiasts there. :)

I'm sure your DIY speakers would be well received.

Maybe one day. According to the doc they look like bits of tree surgery :lol: Aesthetically they do look rough (and they are) because what is the point with prototypes. They do sound killer though (IMO).

Do you attend Owston ?

I like rough, it is all the fashion now - shabby chic speakers :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Things like working rusty cars are a fashion statement in the US.

That is a very kind offer Paul. I am very grateful, but sadly I can't make it.
