    I did not get around to many rooms and did not take any pics - hope to sample more other rooms next year.

    Here's a crude phone panoramic of our room though



    All back in my room with the mid bass horns taped, glued, clamped and recovering whilst playing.

     Yes
    About 4.5m x 5.5m - 24.75sqm ! They are great in my room. Would happily work well in nicer acoustic bigger rooms though I am sure.

    "After the Quorn room of 70sqm - WOW! Back in my room is like a putting on a favorite pair of shoes, or snuggling into a race seat / race cockpit that's been made for you - all falls into place and is right. Amazing how good and involving they sound.

    Interestingly we finally hardly ran the front compression driver horns any harder than I do in my room in relation to the others! Diff between 9 o'clock and 10 o'clock on the vol controls, so only a few dB I guess.
    The mid bass was diff between 10 o'clock and about 12 and the tapped horn was wound round form 10 o'clock to about 2 o'clock." - from my DIY thread.

    We did at times crank the master vol round a bit more though

    No worries, Steve. Taking the picture was a bit cruel but had to be done.

    Indeed he did. Much respect deserved.

    I'd personally still have taken a fucking great lump out of the wall though. After all, we did have insurance...
    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but Iím not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

    He should at least have an award named after him. The organising committee (?) should hand out 'The Speedysteve Award' annually to the exhibitor who makes the most Herculean effort to deliver what he's promised. I've no idea what form it should take mind ... Free curry ? First pick of room next year ? Night with the committee member of his choice ? Any other suggestions ?
