  1. emp Proof? - what a whole lot of nostalgia -EMP hardening has ebabled the military forces across the world to replace Tubes - and than includes the Russians -tubes amps are not immuned to EMP either -the Russians have new technology that is devoid of tubes since the 70's - -in todays world where you need a brain in the electronics of military equipment - unfortunately - tubes are obsolete - on the other hand , if you are a music sound audiophile - tubes are high end equipment -for the ones who can afford it -
  2. perfect answer - -let's be realistic -the scala has one 15 inch woofer - the jubilee two 12inch woofers - and a much wider cab - now take 2 scala bass bins and add the HF section of the jubilee and you will have a pretty good combination , otherwise the Jubilee is better -
  3. the worse thing for your eyesight -
  4. I send all my stuff to Tom in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, 260-494-1677 He has a shop and reconing is what he does for a living. He is the only reconer approved by Electro Voice to redo their old stuff, even the 30 inch EV-30W woofers. Nobody can touch his work... Roger for sure - if he is EV certified - He is not only EV certified, he is the only one authorized to do the old stuff. I called EV in Buchman, Michigan a number of years back when I wanted to get my Electrovoice EV-15W Ks reconed and it was Electrovoice that told me this and sent me his way. He also reproduces the EV 30 inch Styrofoam cones himself! On my 15W-Ks, the recone kits are no longer available. He tested the weight of the suspension and got it within 1/2 Gram of the orriginals. He also shipped my Chrome baskets off to Chromemasters (The guys that did the copper plkating on the OCC statue of liberty bike with original copper from the monument) and had my baskets repolished and triple show chrome plated. I had some PWK dust caps for these cones and even though you cannot see the dust caps inside a Klipschorn, he situated the dust caps so they are perfectly straight up and down when the woofers are properly aligned so the terminals are in the correct place. As I stated, nobody can touch his work and I plan on bringing my EV 15W-Ks to Hope if you want to come have a look. Roger Roger thanks for the tip - regards

  16. we have to get the Jubilees in a proper perspective as they are PWK last speaker design with a lifetime of experience - : the Jubilees are huge , they tend to be a TRUE REPRODUCER - versus per example a Scala or Khorn - -they are a life-like speaker that will reproduce the source material impeccably and without coloring the sound at all - the recording on the CD will ensue through your ears , accurately - as if you were in the recording studio - flat -right down to any deficiency in the recording or by that matter all of it's qualities --the bass is tighter , more defined than a k-horn -and in comparison with the scala , the bass bins are taller and wider -resulting in a wider sound experience - the first time you will hear a Jubilee , you will
