  1. We demo the Jubilees in Silverton Colorado at Natalia’s Restaurant on the outdoor patio. Used for live performances and recorded music May through October. Really an outstanding speaker system for outdoor applications and incredible dynamics for live performances.
  2. Thanks for checking, that seems to be consistent with the cabinets that I have.
  3. Sorry if I wasn’t clear. I was referring to the parallel inner side walls of the bass horn that make up then sides of the back air chamber. These appear to be made of thinner material.
  4. Jim, I have a follow up question on the base horn construction. It looks as if the parallel walls of the dog house are constructed of 1/2” stock rather than 3/4” I have an early pair that are constructed like these. Do you have any information on this?

    Mid-Fi Toaster

    No no, Bose purchased Apple.... better iPhones through marketing!
  6. Another vote for Jubilees. They never fail to put a smile on my face each day, especially when used for live music. Just amazing!

    What would do...

    Schu- Having owned Khorns for more than 40 years and Jubes for 10 years, I’ll say this... The Klipschorn is still an excellent speaker but the Jubilee is a stellar speaker. If you cannot have a pair of each then I would chose the Jubilee, especially with the TADs. I knew this from the first time I heard them and my judgment hasn’t changed after thousands of hours of listening. p.s.- Don’t sweat the active crossover, I had my doubts but Roy made a believer out of me. There’s no going back now, easy to master and sooo flexible.

    La Scala and LS Industrial

    It appears the early Lascala pair from Seattle is the standard 15” woofer bass horn rather than the “runt” version with a 12” woofer.
  9. Those are the earliest production LaScalas I have ever seen. - original version casting of the k-400 midrange horn - original bass horn design with side mounted woofer access door - front mounting board for K-400 and K-77 without upper cabinet structure which was developed later I wonder where these spent their life?

    Jubilees' = Heritage?

    I'm picturing products for a "Supremacy Series" that are dressed-up versions of specific professional line products, including the Jubilee. All of the Heritage series products were available as decorator models (except for Belle Klipsch). This is the same in reverse. I know Klipsch isn't in the design and installation business, there are many companies that provide these services especially in metropolitan areas.

    Jubilees' = Heritage?

    I see what some people spend on high-end kitchens for their homes with the highest quality commercial kitchen appliances. Perhaps the time is right for the same support in home theatre and high-end home audio design and installation services. What if Klipsch created a product line to fulfill the very highest level of specification for the ultimate home installations, professional, adapted for home? Call it Klipsch Supremacy series!
  14. Margin and markup are not the same thing. Example: $5.00 cost/$10.00 retail is 50% margin and a 100% markup.
