    As far as I know that is correct. He also has had more than one variation of phase plug for the 1132 and the latest is a clear improvement over older ones.

    Coytee did Klipsch ever offer the Jubilee as a two way with the 1132 driver? For some reason I have though they did though I can't find any supporting documents for that thought. 380hz for the 1133 driver? You thinking the 1132 will do the same?

    There is a splitter in the center back but no reflectors in the back outside corners.

    Claude what do you think would be a better woofer in this application?

    It's all new to me so I have to figure out what is the best practice for my specific setup.

    I will work on doing this later today and thanks in advance for the help.

    390hz seems to be as low as the 402 crosses over on any current cinema speaker. What I have been told is the lower you can make the 402 work before you hand it off to the bass end of things the better off you are. I am thinking 400hz is OK for this driver but maybe not any lower. Another thing I am thinking of is this Eminence Kappa-15C has a good reputation as a replacement for the K-33 which should work just fine where the k-43 does since they work interchangeably in LS's.

    I have a question in to Roy to see what the lowest safe crossover point for the 1132 is. I can't find any definitive answer for lowest crossover point on these and if someone knows I would appreciate finding out.

    I am going to bump the LF up to 500hz and see how that does.
  10. 1000% RIGHT Titebond Ultimate not much more and has advantages.

    OK all EQ and PEQ in Xilica and Windows Media Player EQ set to default (0) all the way across. Smoothing is default setting in RTA. Crossover is 400 for 402's and 450 for SMWM's

    Two way system with 1132 drivers on the 402 You bet when I get somewhere worthwhile. What I did with my attempt last night sounded worse than what I did fiddling by ear.

    This was done at 500hz and I am thinking of going to 450.

    OK first meaningful data collected on the S-MWM. This is the full system in my typical listening spot with a bit of EQ tinkering. Not all the way there yet. True RTA is the data collector. We were getting odd results and as it turns out the culprit was the speaker size setting inside the Dell sound control panel. It was set to small and needed to be, oddly enough, the large speaker. Thinking of putting Claude's favorite Eminence woofer in there to see how it does on the low end.
  15. You mean like buy parts and get your hands dirty? NO WAY!
  16. Jubilee buyers are hard core high performance fans and I have no idea if frills would sell more. It's hard to judge the "typical" Klipsch owner when the vast majority if them never comment anywhere about what they bought or why. Look at this forum and you see 30,000+ members and darned few ever show up to voice any opinion on anything. Of the people who do own Jube's here I kind of get the feeling most would rather buy as cheap as possible and then tailor to suit afterwards as hands on tinkerers.
  17. Well I did just check out the Gold version and it is a work of art. I happen to prefer things that sound good and have the money spent applied to that area only. I can appreciate that people want those things I am just not one of them. They have cryogenically treated crossovers too as my eyes roll back in my head.
  18. Have to admit I want a monster sound generating device to look like one and not something that meets WAF. Brown Duratex if you must get fancy. It is all about what does it sound like here.
  19. For you they make tintable Duratex so what color do you want

    I have it set up and I have fiddled with it a fair amount to get it sounding good on the Xilica. It is REW that is the problem right now.
  21. Who knows what the real results were and that is the problem with second hand info. I find it very interesting though that people like HDBRbuilder choose plywood. It is not all about just water resistance either and read his comments regarding veneer delamination. I have heard this from others also where speakers were in controlled environments since bought new. Being a hands on guy myself in both repair and restoration of speakers and the building of some now too I have solid reasons for not doing what bean counters and their coterie of sawdust lovers do.
  22. Well I though these were gone but they are not so back on the market. Two K-400 style heavy cast aluminum horns and drivers. Two square magnet woofers and OEM crossovers and most of the L-Pads. I have no idea if the L-Pads and crossovers are right and not going to bother to find out. $300 + shipping. If anyone is interested and needs to have pictures posted I will do so.

    Well that sounds good but here is the problem with software and learning on your own by trial and error and crap documentation. You can spend a ton of time to get to what you think is the right place with it only to find out later there were best practices that would give you better and quicker results. You can go on for some time thinking you have it all solved only to have some whiz bang at it see you work your "magic" and when he is done laughing show you how it is really done. It is not that it can't be done but my tolerance for stumbling through the process has about had it after 15 years of CAD and CAM programs. I would rather learn best practices to begin with and save myself the problems DIY can cause with software.
  24. Everyone gets to do this once in their life but yes it is NOT something to gage normal selling prices by. Bet you never get a deal like that again.
