    I'd really like to go as well but I'll be in Ms. for two weeks in Nov. It would be nice to meet even more of the Polk family and to meet a fellow Crew Chief with the same interest would be great.

    In Wescott? I live in the subdivision behind the Publix at Ashley Phosphate / Dorchester.

    You missed two previous PF's here...2004/2006.

    Doubt that there will be any subwoofers here....the lineup is TBD. Will probably revolve around the Quad 988's (which will NOT play at aurally traumatizing levels) and the SDA 2.3tl's.

    Again, this is primarily a SOCIAL event. There will be gear and there will be listening. There probably won't be much gear swapping.....I haven't talked with anyone from Polk about what, if anything, they are bringing to the party. Historically, it hasn't been about demoing new gear. Back in 2004, we gave away an XM tuna and we demo'd Polk Pauls rebuilt CRS's.....in 2006, we demoed the iSonic (one was raffled off to benefit the Githen's center)

    The point being, if you are coming to hear the latest and greatest from Polk....it's probably not going to happen. If you are wanting to listen to some tunes, hang out with some of the coolest people on the planet and tell lies about women and audio, eat like a king and drink like a fish...that's what my Polkfests are about.

    Who cares about the speakers/gear. You could even place them in storage to fit more beer in the house.

    Watching Russ do a ShamWOW demonstration after about 20 beers (that's only during the first hour or so) will be worth the trip to Charleston all by itself. It will be even better if there is fire or electricity involved. :D

    You mean I won't be eligible for deep, absolutely CRAZY discounts on buying gear during the Fest!?! Pffft, forget it I'm not attending. :D
