OK Guys
Looks like a good idea to get together and all have a look at what's on offer in the amp world.
 
We can meet at my warehouse in Ripley, Surrey (postcode GU23 6HS) where we can make noise.
I'll have lots of different types of speakers to try, but of course if anyone's got any they want to play with, bring 'em down. Only thing is, I don't really need anyone turning up with a load more subs as we will run out of space. There will be at least 8 Quake subs in stock here so that should suffice, and we'll be able to max out any amplifier that we bring.
 
I won't bother compiling a list of amps that we'll have to play with - it's a question of 'run what ya brung'!!
 
I would strees that this is going to be a friendly meet, with the no-so-hidden agenda on my part of getting to say hello to a few forumites.
 
I'd like people to bring their favourite CDs / iPods / Laptops to play!
 
I think the only test gear here will be ears, Smaart and a dB meter - it all gets a bit anal after that.
 
Ideally could all amps be the type that run to 2ohm - then we can AB test properly.
 
Date I'm thinking of is wednesday 2nd September. Is that OK with everyone?
 
I need people to reply to this thread with whether they can make it or not, and what their favourite type of biscuit is.
 
All the best chaps,
 
Mike
 
 [edit : test gear!]

The 2 ohm running will count out most XP 5000's as they only go to 4 ohm, I believe.

Could you not set-up 2 ohm and 4 ohm rigs for a greater variety of amps to test ? Just a thought, and also what cables are you using for 2ohm ( 2x 4mm or 2x 6mm ?)

Cheers

Have put it in my diary, been meaning to pop up and see you for some time.  Might throw some other random interesting items in the van, in case anyone wants to look/listen.

I'm easy on tea/coffee/biscuits as long as there is some!

Start late morning - let's say 11am. Finish whenever we get bored? There is a pub up the road that also does decent food!

Just want to make it clear that you don't have to bring anything if you're coming - just a smile will do..

If anyone's got the 2 ohm XP5000s, that would make a fairer test.
 
6mm cable I guess (there's quite a choice here...)

I'm sure it will - the main objective is to actually organise one that gets off the ground..!!!

I'm afraid the only amp I have which is big enough to be slightly interesting is a Crest 8001 but if I ask my mates nicely I could get Camco's and Lab Gruppens if you don't have any already.
