  1. 1. Jubscala or JubBelle (if you can fit it) or another Jub. All these choices will sound approximately the same for a center channel, and their apparent source width will match the corner Jubs. 2. Tri-amped and time-corrected Belle or La Scala (I'm using a tri-amped Belle currently) 3. Phantom center. I've tried other speakers. Any speaker with a direct-radiating woofer is a non-starter to my ears. My tri-amped and time-corrected Belle sounds like a Jub, except that its apparent source width/height is much smaller. In HT mode, it works perfectly, but when playing any material where only the center channel is on, it sounds smaller than the flanking Jubs, but the timbre matches. Chris

  2. Amen to all that. Your welcome, but I have seen your work(in photos) and I know better than that. If you did use duct tape and baling, no one would ever know it. Bill

  5. He is aware that his Denon might not provide as much of an impact without an amp but he will at least have a reference of what it does sound like with an amp. If does decide to add an amp, he will need to upgrade his receiver because it does not have preamps. Wake and his wife were absolutely thrilled with the performance of the RF-7ii's both in the living room in a 2ch configuration and in the HT in a 7.1 configuration. His wife spent most of the day streaming from her iPhone through the Apple Airport Express. One comment she made was, "I'm impressed". Wake just smiled and said, "That's my girl".

  6. I found the lens assembly on fleabay for just under $20 i figured why not. It is one of the best sounding players i ever heard. Came out pretty easy with a hammer and crowbar, i will give an update when the new part is installed.

  7. Thanks everyone ! The crossovers are original. Should I ship them to Bob for a rebuild, or buy his replacements ? I have heard LaScala's don't play bass. It sounds awesome to me, not super low, but impressive. Better bass than my Chorus 2's for sure. Chorus plays heavy bass parts well, but if there is subtle bass, it seems to have a lack response for softer bass lines or bass drums. As for a center channel, another Scala would be ideal, but size wise I'm not sure I could pull it off. In 1985, I heard a pair of Klipschorns in a night club while stationed in Korea. I was amazed. I said , one day I will get a pair. Can't deal with the corner placement, so Scala's will do fine. I love them ! Can't stop looking at them...

  8. I mean that the sides are not sealed against a wall. Are they modified with backs attached?

  9. If I was at a Britney spears concert I'd get sick to my stomach and the more the crowd cheered the more I would vomit... as I left the concert during the first or second song I would think to myself "these people are Idiots"

  10. Well with amplifiers/preamplifiers I use both the objective and subjective approach but all the final tuning is totally decided by the subjective. Then the objective approach is used to confirm stabilty and specifications... In the end I'm with the "DUKE" "If it sounds good it is good" but add in it has to be long term reliable and stable! The audio hobby is about the user or owner of the gear. There is no absolutes. If the owner/user of the system likes it then that is all that matters.... They are not building a system to please someone else....that would be crazy IMHO....

  11. Gotta call BS on that one. How can you call BS on his opinions? They are his opinions, even stated as such. You either forgot the smiley at the end, or should have said that you have a counter opinion.

  12. I like the messaging system of the new forum. Please don't hesitate to use it if you need to reach me. My email inbox is a mess -- I've decided I'm not the biggest fan of gmail. I took my phone number down off of my website. I enjoy the conversations, but they cut into time I should using to get things done for people. I really just don't have time for consulting anymore. The number of calls I get from people asking me questions about things other people sell is almost as much as the number of calls I get about my stuff! If you're having an issue with something you just bought from one of the other guys, please don't call me about it. There is also going to be a lot less from me here. To be honest, the culture here has changed quite a bit, and it really is to the point where I can't use any word related to crossovers without someone thinking I'm trying to sell something. I recently made a pithy tongue in cheek comment in the active/biamping thread in the technical section and was asked if I was "still selling". I think it's pretty sad when someone who's been contributing here as long as I have has to put up with that kind of treatment. I started the roadshow because so many were asking about the different crossovers, what they offered, what they sounded like, etc -- I just thought the best way to answer the questions was to let people listen and compare. Seriously, is it the end of the freaking world if I get a return for doing this? For those who care -- we did a full blown comparison between an active set up and passives with the Jubilees. The active set up was very nice, as were the passives. Those who can't hear worth a **** preferred the active set up, and those who actually know what music is supposed to sound like picked the passives. Oh, and there were actually people in the room who couldn't hear a difference -- you always have those, they're everywhere you know.

  13. The dog house is about 2 by 2 by 2. top section is about 1(high) by 2 by 2. cheap is another story, Heresy was made to be a centre channel for the Khorns(so they say). either would be viable options for a centre channel. I'm using a Heresy as a centre with my jubs, and it works well. I'd think Heresy's would also be good surrounds and match well as rears. i've also used Heresy's as rear speakers, They are good and versatile.
