    • Yes, it did for me.  I can't detect the midbass/midrange polar lobing now.  I haven't done polar measurements in-room for the Jubilees in their current configuration, but I can say that the midrange and upper midbass is very close to the K-402-MEH--something that I couldn't say before the lowering of the K-402s and the phase flattening of the crossover filters.  The K-402-MEH won the midrange sound contest beforehand.  Now--it's very difficult to hear any difference at all. ________________________________________________________________________________________ One thing that I should mention--that's really been driven home in the last week or so for me:   Most audio enthusiasts are content with sitting in a chair squarely on centerline between the stereo loudspeakers at 8-12 feet distance from the loudspeaker and making all of their judgments on sound quality based on that type of "head in a vise" approach to audio.    With K-402s and Jubilee bass bins (and this includes the K-402-MEH), anywhere you stand or sit in the room is roughly equivalent.  It does sound better in the main listening chairs 10-12 feet away and centered in front of the frontal three loudspeakers, but anywhere else in the room is also really good, too--enough to stand and listen in those different locations.    This is stark contrast to the time-aligned/tri-amped Khorn clones that I dialed in over the past couple of weeks, (and am in the process of converting over to stacked/winged AMT-1s with Khorn (clone) bass bins).  If you weren't sitting in front of them in the right place, they really didn't sound tonally balanced or with enough high end sparkle to identify them as higher sound quality loudspeakers.  If you weren't listening in a head-in-a-vise style, they really weren't very enticing to listen to. The story is completely different for the Jubs/K-402-MEH across the front of the main setup.  Sure, the difference in room size does make a big difference (the Khorn clones are in a much smaller room), but not that much difference in sound quality.    I can't really emphasize the difference that that sound quality makes: it's like comparing a small hi-fi system at home with a commercial cinema where all the seats sound just as good as the next seat.  In terms of developing a sense of confidence in the sound quality exhibiting the highest clarity and balance (i.e., trust in what you're hearing is the way that the music was placed on the music media, that you're listening to reference quality sound) there is no comparison with other systems.  This is the real difference in sound that I experience with the setup.  It didn't get that way by "accidental synergy of components collected into a sound system".  It took guys like Roy, et al. a lot of effort to be able to hear that level of sound quality in-room.   Chris 
    • One of my brothers had one of these he bought new.  I remember he had a Kerker header that he normally ran open.  Carbs were reworked and rejetted.  Heads were taken off, bench flowed and cc'd.  There wasn't much faster on the street at that time.
    • Wow.  Just wow.  Just came back from a walk and my daughter filled me in.   RIP Black Mamba.

    • To install, would you just set the boards on the bottom of the interior & plug the wires into the 3 speakers & the terminal? No soldering? Looks like a very easy install, right?   Frank
