  1. Completely agree. After I heard them and the Heresy III at Hope last year, it was an easy decision for me. Bose?
  2. Unless someone went this route.... this might get you close, especially if you already have a quality sub.
  3. There is a thread with locations for many Jubilee's. I don't know of any thread with specific locations for LS II's. Having spoken with most (but not all, now that the group is growing) of the Jubilee owners, I can't think of one that would object to having someone over to give them a good listen. If someone is genuinely thinking about that kind of expense....I'd consider a round trip air fare (especially if you can go direct) to give them a whirl. Someone in Chicago was once making comments about his debate on buying a pair. I let him know that the airlines fly direct from Chicago to Knoxville (where I am) and I'd be happy to pick him up for a full day of auditioning and I'd take him back to airport.... perhaps when the weather breaks...it will happen.
  4. Yep Now, what if you'd used them with an active? You could have programmed some (most?) of that out!
  5. Oh, and if you are actually debating that..... then you would do yourself a favor to hear the Jubilee's. Might even save some money. (not sure today of actual street pricing of either so I might be out of bounds there)
  6. Having owned LaScalas since 1979 (bought them new) and having heard the LaScala II, my opinion is, the II's "sound" like they have a full (additional) octave of bass. When I asked about it to some of their engineers, he (Jim Hunter) admitted to me that the same output is there in the original LaScala, it's just masked by all the vibrations of the sidewalls.....if you could tame those, you'd hear that lower sound that the II's have.
  7. Exactamundo. When Roy developed the "JubeScala" (LaScala bottom with K402 on top) he also created a profile to go into an active crossover. As it happens, he also slipped an additional PEQ in there (180 Hz Q=12, -4 db) to help tame those sidewalls from resonating.

    crazy Heresy veneer

    They look very nice. For my tastes......the crazier the better!

    Top half of the Jubilees (Not cheap)

    Yep, those are them.... nice find! Now if they'd only do that with Belle's, Khorns... how about a mini-MCM system! It could become a "collect one, collect them all" situation..... I'd be down for one of them for sure. Alas.... good that dreaming is free....

    I used to make mention that Klipsch should create their Pro-Media line as replicas of Heritage. How cool would it be to have some 6" tall LaScalas for your PC?!!! Then.... someone made a pair. Don't recall who, but they posted a picture of them.

    Top half of the Jubilees (Not cheap)

    I agree. If you look at the back side of them, they don't have any of the (buffing?) marks... Pesonally I think they look good. I've thought about spraying mine from time to time, then realize that involves taking them all apart and carrying them outside. Easier to listen to them.

    Some perspective...
  13. This thread is great & all.... since we're into hijacking....will the plan take off from the conveyor belt??

    K-510 pic needed of "broken" horn

    No worries... it's not going anywhere (nor is the TAD-4002 I have for it) Now, if I could only get my wife to agree to move (get rid?) her (now deceased) fathers buffet that is in the way...but I guess that isn't going to happen.

    "Extremely Rare Original Vintage Klipsch A Legend in Sound Logo Ceramic Mug Black" Interesting that they just happen to have 10 available for sale.... I wonder how many they'd have if they were not extremely rare.....

    K-510 pic needed of "broken" horn

    I wasn't there for any of the conversations, but had I heard in the beginning that you wanted to buy just a horn lens, I would have told you that 'my understanding' was that they simply don't do that.... they don't want to be in the parts business for DIY'ers, just like Roy said... My take on it is you perhaps spoke to someone who frankly, might not have known better.... and now their ignorance has put you into a bad situation. I've got an idea... first, do I understand that you have one horn with mumps and one without? If that's accurate, I have a 510 without mumps. Personally I'm agnostic about them and don't care if I have mumps or not....my horn is sitting in my closet with nothing to mount it to. I'd be happy to swap my without mumps for your mumps, this way you'll have a matched pair and I can have some mumps in the closet.
  17. You need to go into marriage counseling.... You did however, lose me at the "to the point you can listen for hours on end"..... so maybe not...

    FS: McIntosh C22,! SOLD, SOLD, SOLD

    I kind of agree with you... As I read his comment I got to thinking "what's the big deal?" (and still don't get the 'problem') If someone can't read "sold" in the title or perhaps it actually never gets posted and some confusion abounds.... well.... so what. It's not like the market went down last year.... or it's winter time right now or my wife's honey-do list for me just tripled.... hmmmm.....wait..... never mind.

    Three Way MCM 1900 for sale soon

    Looking at your picture, it dawned on me that if you stacked books on those horizontal braces......then the MCM system would then be.......wait for it..... a bookshelf speaker!

    Three Way MCM 1900 for sale soon

    Slight correction.... the Jubilee makes the LaScala sound like a bookshelf speaker......and the MCM makes the Jubilee sound like a bookshelf speaker!
