  1. I have found it relatively easy to move Jubilees between venues without damage, perhaps 30 moves over 12 years all without damage. A good, wide-wheelbase two-wheel hand truck is very useful to do this safely.
  2. Or, the Corvette is the Cornwall of cars......
  3. I think the tractrix flare improves the flow efficiency, allowing the port tuning frequency to be more stable over a wider output range.
  4. At various times, Roy has talked about the importance of matching the polar pattern of each driver in the crossover region to make the transition as seamless as possible. I suspect that was a key element in the choice here.
  5. I wonder about that bread........
  6. Why not look at applying isolation to the attachment points at the top of the structure where the fenders attach to the upright supports and not at the axle attachment points. Seems you will achieve most of the vibration control with far less effort.
  7. HDBRbuilder, which of the techniques you described was used to fabricate the Palladium speakers? It seems likely Klipsch would use the method they have already perfected and have experience with.
  8. Great to see a very positive review of this latest version of the LaScala, much- deserved and well written. Great work on this, Roy!
  9. They were made from an early form of fiberglass, laid up on a form. Very labor intensive.
  10. I think it is an optical illusion from the reflection of the flash. Properly aligned with no overhang.
  11. The K-5-J horn does not measure as well as the K-400, it’s bandwidth and FR don’t look as good, but many people prefer its sound. The polar response in the horizontal plane is outstanding, especially considering the era this horn is from. I love listening to this one....use it in a CornScala configuration, very natural sounding!
  12. One of my favorite Bach compositions for organ! I will play this through the Jubilees on the patio after we close. Thank you Chris
  13. Yes open May through October, closed in winter. We have been trying to make the pilgrimage, always have schedule conflicts if the event is too late on the calendar. You are right, no Jubilee pictures on the website, guess I have to fix that! (Don’t tell Coytee, he will probably faint if he sees pictures after all this time)
  14. That was such a great event! I learned a lot and met some great people as well. Hope we can do it again! Coytee, good memory! After 12 years, the Jubs still get a workout every day on the patio with live and recorded music. They look and sound like new, a testament to their design and construction quality. We are really glad Klipsch built them in marine - grade plywood for us.
