  1. Chris, your comments and description of minimum spacing and listening distance are spot-on. This has been my experience as well over the last 12 years.
  2. I noticed that too.... I have no doubt that Roy found another way to address that issue so that it’s a non-issue!
  3. 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.
  4. Or, the Corvette is the Cornwall of cars......
  5. I think the tractrix flare improves the flow efficiency, allowing the port tuning frequency to be more stable over a wider output range.
  6. 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.
  7. I wonder about that bread........
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Great to see a very positive review of this latest version of the LaScala, much- deserved and well written. Great work on this, Roy!
  11. They were made from an early form of fiberglass, laid up on a form. Very labor intensive.
  12. I think it is an optical illusion from the reflection of the flash. Properly aligned with no overhang.
  13. 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!
  14. One of my favorite Bach compositions for organ! I will play this through the Jubilees on the patio after we close. Thank you Chris
  15. 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)
  16. 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.
  17. Silverton also has the distinction of the highest elevation installation of Jubilees, they play live and recorded music every day on the outdoor patio at the restaurant for our guests from the Durango&Silverton narrow-gauge Railroad.
  18. That’s funny! We live in Silverton May through October, where we operate our restaurant. Sedona is home, where we live November through April. There are about 700 year- round residents here, as my wife says, “Silverton winters are for the hearty and foolish, we are neither!” this last winter was one for the record books, well over 20 feet of snow in town, higher elevations over 50 feet!
  19. Ahh, Sedona, I miss home! Here in Silverton CO, it was 46 this morning, on the way to 70.
  20. I have said this before and still believe it is true..... To successfully launch the Jubilee as the premier home speaker will require something we have not seen yet, a state-of-the-art hf horn of a size that is between the 402 and the 510. This will overcome the size objections which would limit sales of a 402 design and overcome the performance limitations of pattern control on the 510. Development of an intermediate sized horn probably only makes sense if there is an application on the professional / theater side of the business. We can always hope! And yes, Klipsch, I would love to see that reality come to pass, and I would buy them for my home!
  21. Any updates to report on your quest?
  22. Perhaps the next museum edition feature could be a three- channel setup including a pair of Klipschorns and a matching Lascala! I have little doubt there would be a bidding war for that package.....
