    Out with the old, and in with the new.

    First let me say this is my unscientific opinion based on my experience in my room. For rap type music KP600'S are hands down the winners. They also have the best detail and are exceptionally clear sounding. The clarity of these are what suprised me the most. They are not nearly as directional as the others so i can walk all around the room and the sound stays the same. What they don't do as good as the others, mainly due to the 402 horn on the jubes/mwm's is imaging and sound stage. Jube's and mwm's / 402 have that "headphone" 3D kind of sound where the KP600'S are more like a wall of sound and I can feel the subs gush air by my face from 18 feet away, they are very impressive speakers. My room is in the basement, my girlfriend says from upstairs they sound better than the jubes or mwm's. Mwm's/402. I really like these for rock music, they just slam nice and clean and have a fantastic sound stage when you're in the sweet spot. They are much more directional than the KP600's so walking around the room you can definitely hear the sound change and you lose the sound stage from the sweet spot. I do feel the mwm bass bins resonate more than jubes do. The mwm's seem to rattle things around upstairs even more than the KP600's. Jubes are alot smaller and they sound it by comparison. The bass bins don't have the slam of the others. 2 x k31woofers in a horn half the size just can't win against the others in the Slam/SPL department. Jubes are also directional like the mwm's so they definitely have a sweet spot but Jubes do everything well. What the jubes do better then both the others are the cabinets are built so solid I don't hear any resonating or vibrating from the cabinets at all even when cranked to the limit. Right now I am using the jubes as surrounds for the mwm's and I'm pretty happy so I'm not entirely sure what I will do next. I'll probably swop the kp600's back in and then decide on what I'm going to sell. I'm getting a bit tired of moving all these huge speakers around. I've been kicking the idea around of making a "Cornscala wall" that would consist of 6 pairs for the front stage and 2 pairs for surrounds. Mike.

    Pony Express Central (Shipping Discussion)

    I've had alot of big stuff shipped to me all the way up to Maine so there are people out there who will do whatever it takes to get what they want. I've had 8 MWM bass bins, complete KP600 system, 2 tuba tht subs, 402 horns, 4 pairs of Cornscala's, Jubilee's. .. all shipped to me. I used Uship for alot of it and only had one bad experience shipping the KP600's, the dude thought he could load them on a box truck "dock high" by himself. Mike.

    I have MWM'S, Jubes and KP600's.
  4. I use two amps for my jubes. I've tried many different high end amps on the bass bins and I like my Crown I-tech the best. The bins really come alive with alot of power and higher dampening factor. Class A for tops. Sounds amazing.

    Klipsch Palladium or RF-7 III

    The horn on the Jubilee is not metal. Personally I think they are one the best looking speakers Klipsch offers and if you have corners they don't take up much room at all.

    Horn adaptor for K-77 replacement

    I only have this pic on my phone. I can take more pics tonight. All i think it would take is an adapter plate with 4 holes same as the k77 to mount to the horn and have the holes to mount the DE120 or DE110 to the plate and it should work. I could probably make one out of wood but I'd rather have one machined like the ones you make. I'll post a couple more pics when I get home.
  8. They might go lower but I certainly wouldn't say they have better bass. In my experience Chorus bass hits you in the chest harder. The woofers handle alot more power and to my ears sound clearer in the 150-500hz range, and they take up less space. The only way for him to really find out is to compair them in his room. If you can buy the CW without selling the Chorus I would, you really can't go wrong for 850 and you can have fun doing the comparison. I just wouldn't sell the Chorus to buy the CW, you might regret it and have to hunt down another pair of Chorus. To often I have made the mistake of selling what I have to buy something else only to regret it.
  9. I would keep the Chorus. I've owned Chorus 1 and 2 as well as Cornwall 1 and 2, to my ears the Chorus sounded better. The woofer handles more power. You might like the Cornwalls better but won't know until you hear them both under equal conditions. I would upgrade the Chorus with Crites crossovers and install a DE120 tweeter with the adapter a forum member just started selling. Those would be hard to beat.

    Horn adaptor for K-77 replacement

    Nice work! I have a pair of kp600's that uses 2 k77 tweeters mounted to a duel manifold horn. Any idea if these adapters would enable me to use DE120 or 110?

    Jubilee 4,380 day update...

    I thought the same thing a year ago. With XConsole it's easy. I'm no expert by any means but I'm pretty good with it now. I never messed with active crossovers before the xilica and i didn't have the slightest clue what I was doing, with help from Chris I was able to get my Jubilee's sounding great. I've since used it for two way mwm's, tuba subs, and most recently for 4 way KP600's with great results. Just use XConsole and not the front pannel on the xilica. Chris, I would be interested in trying out those new settings you came up with using the Bessel Crossover.

    Jubilee/MWM Crossover inquiry

    MWM and jubilee bass bins are very different. It might "work" but it wouldn't sound as good as it should and might sound very bad.

    Converting khorns to 2way

    I cross my Faital pro hf20at between 400 and 450hz with 48 db slope on jubilees and mwm's with no problems and I listen very loud. Amps I've used with them are Parasound JC-1, Mcintosh mc452. They are fantastic drivers.

    FS: KP-600s with KP-682s

    Hi, Before I get ahead of myself with questions, are you able to ship these? I didn't see your location in the add. I am in Maine. Thanks, Mike.
