  1. Brotha Cesar, It's only 15 days into 2019, ...and I almost have all components for that 5.1 Dvd-Audio Jube System. I just might make that 'GAME of THRONES deadline', way ahead of my predicted schedule for that 125" Projector + Screen ! ~Rock on ... Craig

    F/S : 3-Way JUBILEEs in EUROPE ! (NETHERLANDs) Jan.7th, 2019

    Same Klipsch 3-Way Jubnilees, but in a different ad. https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/audio-tv-en-foto/luidsprekers/m1357713537-klipsch-jubilee-3-weg.html
  3. I am in no way affiliated with this sale ; ...I just saw these go up yesterday (Jan.7th,2019) in NETHERLANDs, ...on the international market : 3-Way JUBILEEs in EUROPE ! (NETHERLANDs) with CROSSOVER, and DSP ! https://www.audio-markt.de/_markt/item.php?id=8781051347 Seller Info : Frank Slopsma 1784PJ Den Helder Netherlands tel.: 0031-223638800 Seller: Frank Slopsma 1784PJ Den Helder Netherlands tel.: 0031-223638800 Here is an invoice to ask the seller questions, if you are seriously interested in that EUROPEAN purchase. https://www.audio-markt.de/_markt/email_request.php?auction_id=8781051347&user_id=55941& *If you have ever wanted a pair of Jubilees in EUROPE , trust me...they are supreme to anything you could ever put in a Home setting , especially at this LOW cost . How do I know...I own a L/C/R JUBILEE setup myself !! ~Happy JUBE 'ing ! Craig
  4. *NEW*Matching Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 ECC83 GOLD PINS https://www.ebay.com/itm/323626105212
  5. Thank You so much Delicious2 , ...for the kind words ! Both of my main MUSIC systems (Theater Surround + the JUBILEE Rooms) are 18ft x 15ft rooms. But, the Jubilee Room has 11 foot ceilings with 6 Clouds (10ft x 18"...4" thick) , ...filled with Rockwool 'SAFE 'n SOUND' Acoustical Soundproofing Insulation. https://www.rockwool.com/products/safensound/ The CLOUDS are pictured above, in my downstairs RF7-iii Surround System, before they were wrapped with FLEECE Fabric. Again, The Jube room upstairs is the exact size and directly above this pictured downstairs living room ! The 6 CLOUDs are hung upstairs by hooks and chain ! The 11ft ceiling is angled, as seen in this OLD foto of the room, pictured below ! The reflective Couch and Metal table were the first thing I removed from the room ! All ' 5 milliseconds ' reflective surfaces, were addressed and label'd as ' PRIORITY ' in getting this room acoustically treated ! The acoustic Stage Curtains were purchased from the ROSE BRAND ( www.RoseBrand.com ), a professional Theater supply company in the New York City area ! After I removed that long reflective couch, I acquired a LOW SHOULDER Fabric 'CLUB' seat for my listening position. (pictured below) My Danley TH-50 SUB Woofer cabinet is barely seen in the right side of the picture above. ...a massive 24” Tall x 34” Wide x 25.5” Deep flawless speaker, true down to 21hz. https://www.danleysoundlabs.com/products/subwoofers/tapped-horns/th50/ Since that pic was taken, it has been moved directly behind my listening seat, within inches of the back of that new fabric Club Seat ! Also, i must mention that moving the seating position off the Back of the Wall , was a game changer sonic'ly. *A serious recommendation to anyone sitting directly next to a WALL : Move your listening position at least 4-5 feet off the Wall, if your closest wall is acoustically treated ! Or, move at least 6 feet off the wall, ... if it is NOT acoustically treated ! (The golden '5 millisecond Reflection rule' is around the 6 feet mark, ...which I truly now believe) Our brotha ChrisA, can verify for us, if I am not close to that estimation. Trust me, THAT made a HUGE difference in the systems fidelity. -Tightening everything ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My room's SIDE 15ft walls, are my 'SHORT WALLS' ! I built 4 Curved-Diffussors, for the 1st and 2nd order side-wall reflection points ! They cost me about $10 each, to make . (If anyone is curious how to build those, just ask) Below are some pics of the side walls ! So to conclude, ...this is my 2-Channel listening Jube L/C/R system, for 2018 . All equipment used in of all my Klipsch systems are listed below, in my signature ! For 2019 , I want to expand to 5.1 Audio. In 2020, I will add a 125" screen + Projector ! Thanx for lookin' , Any questions ...? HAPPY NEW YEAR ! ~ Craig LeMay 281.469.1111 Born2Rock@Comcast.net
  6. My JUBE ROOM ! Fully treated with Theater Curtains, all 4 corner Bass Traps, and Curved-Diffusers for the side walls ! My Left/Center/Right Klipsch Jubilees are set in a 2.1 setup right now. Using my Xilica xp-4080 (4 ch IN / 8 ch OUT) the center Jubilee is just a MONO MIX , combining both L+R input signals. ...since each of the Jubilees are Bi-amped it takes 6 channels for the L/C/R's here, plus add another output channel for my Danley TH-50 sub , So for this 2.1 setup I am using 7 OUTPUT channels ! BUT this coming 2019, ...I am moving into a 5.1 setup. If all goes as imagined, all I will need is another Xilica and 2 more Jubilee K-402 Horns, ...which I will just place on top of my Klipsch KHorn from downstairs. I will be using a Marantz AV7703 Processor for all the audio duties, ...10 Carver Pro ZR1600 Mono Blocks ( a Phoenix Gold product, not Bob Carver) for the Bi-Amped Jubilees, ...and a Crown Macro-Tech MA3600vz Bridged in Mono, for the Danley TH-50 SUB. So, as you can see in the attached picture ...3 Jubilees down, 2 Jublees to go...for a 5.1 Jubilee setup ! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- While Im here, I'd like to give a huge shout-out to @Chris A for all he does for our Klipsch Community here, ...and especially for his incredible Bessel-Crossover tuning he did personally for these 2018 Klipsch Jubilees ! I could not have reached AUDIO NIRVANA with out you CHRIS ! You certainly ROCKED MY WORLD ! ~Thank You, a million-times-over ! ~Craig LeMay (1) 281.469.1111 Born2Rock@Comcast.net

    Khorn 2 way with K510?

    Cesar, Everything Chris suggest is THE way to go, for your budget. I will help you all the way, ...with the tuning, using the Xilica XP-4080. BUT, If you plan on any future surround system applications...get the xp-8080 like our Klipsch brotha 'Chris A' has ! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @Chris A ..your BESSEL tuning BLEW @Maximus89's mind, yesterday, at my Jubilee demo ! Thank you again for all you do !
  10. Thank You CHRIS, for all you do ! -You are a blessing to all Audio enthusiasts, in need of direction ! Rock on , ~Craig LeMay
