  1. Having gone down this path and also an owner, there is a reason everyone is running active. Probably near 1000 pages of info at this point. Subscribing though because I’d like to see this ones journey. Also another can of worms... start reading audio science review (ASR) forum if you really want your analog perceptions challenged or rather measured 😁
  2. Thanks for posting. “”Crickets on the News postings on this forum”” hopefully well I’ll get some info soon
  3. Can't believe I missed this thread. Nice work as always Chris. It's amazing over the years the amount of information that has accumulated for Jubilees. There was a large amount of data a year prior to my purchase, which helped immensely and it just continues to grow. From my general browsing from here and other forums, I don't believe I've ever seen a larger support group dedicated to a single speaker other than the Jubilee.
  4. Good for her. I don’t think there’s anything odd or wrong about that at all. We’re currently house shopping again and it isn’t the 1st priority, but it is up there to have a certain sized room that will be dedicated for music/theater. When lots of homes have the corner windows or a fireplace in the center just like the house pictured in the video we cross it off.
  5. Oh yes, countless threads to go through. I remember doing all the little mods I believe his name was Clarke? Was almost 14ish years ago? Removing weight from fly wheel, airbox mod flapper valve, the rear brake boiling to 5.1 and various mods to keep the clutch from getting air in it having to re-bleed. I remember Amari's posts as well. Never met in person as I was in MN, but read a lot of their suggestions. I think it was clarke that turned me to the tigcraft exhaust above. I did a few group buys as well, one was the smoked lenses above. Fun times, funny how small the world is. Thanks! I have a few panels that are on the wall for temporary purposes. The new room slightly bigger than my old room, but opens up into the kitchen and no corner wall for imaging on one side. I already had the L & R, for a year or so, but just got the center channel. I was using a DC-ONE, but recently bought a xilica instead as I needed more inputs/outputs. For the time being I'm using D75a amps. One per jube. Using same Pre as you 7703 Marantz. Source is FLAC from my NAS. Since we are planning to move either very soon or in about a year, I'm not going to spend too much time with customization. When we do move I will have a more permanant spot for many years. At that time I'm prepared to do all of the acoustic changes necessary, even if it means hammering or making walls. Horn subs will be added and so will my la scalas for surround.
  6. Yup kept this tag as it kind of stuck since my days over at the AF1 Aprilia Forum. I had always dreamed of the Nera. Never got to see one in person. It was twice the price of the RSV if I can remember. I'll bet it becomes a collector someday. I had the RSV 2004 grey with blue rims and then later traded for the 2007 factory R pictured here. Lots of track days on both bikes. Still think it was the best sounding bike out there if you put on a full system. I sold it in 2012 still miss it.
  7. Arrived safely and undamaged late last week. I unboxed on Monday. Will post pics when I get them a bit more in place.
  8. I am in the bay area. I will do auditions in about another year once I have a better permanent install for them and I don't have a crazy person next door. Aprilia (RSVR). Bike didn't have to leave the garage and my wife enjoyed it..... So much this. I have some DIY panels that help immensely, but cant wait to have a final room I can really dial in. Carpet as well.
  9. You will find that they actually perform spectacular in a small room. I recently moved and now have them in a much larger room with very tall ceilings. In the event you move they scale beautifully as well as I found out.
  10. Pole barn theater addition to house maybe 👍
  11. Yes I did just that. Thankfully Cherry is much easier to match than Walnut with the patterns. I'm assuming the stain would remain the same as well, however as mine have matured the color might be slightly different. I believe in time as they age it should be near identical. I'm very happy to have them with all matching components. I don't know when there might be component changes, as in end of production. (example the K69 to K691) (driver in bass bins end of life -new model). I'm sure they will do their best job to ensure changes are un-noticed, but for me knowing in the back of my mind that the components and design are matching I'm at ease. I would say that running phantom center has far exceeded my expectations and coverage really is phenomenal, but my end game is to have a larger room and having that center channel has become a must.
  12. And........ Here...............We...............Go.................................... 3rd Jubilee has been ordered. New Xilica 4080 to match to replace the DC-One as now I need more inputs outputs. Very appreciative to have Cory making this happen again for me. Biggest regret is not doing them all together from the beginning having matching numbers and possibly mismatched veneer. However, knowing the craftsmanship, I'm betting there will be no differences. Matching LCR Jubilees. No rush this time as I already have 2 playing beautifully, but at the same time I still can't wait. It will probably be a bit before I pull the trigger on a new amp. There's a lot of things happening in this area I'm wanting to see how it all pans out.
  13. It is the tuba ht or rather Bills page is in my saved bookmarks. Appreciate the recommendation 🙏. They seem like a great sub, however fall off rather quickly after 20hz. The Tubas would be great in many applications, I’m certain. I don’t think think I’ve read a bad thing about them across this forum or others. However, with the bass bins being able to extend nicely below 40hz, I’m fine with having a horn dedicated strictly to those infrasonic notes to the bass bin. It’s ok if it unloads at 70hz, which is where the lil wrecker sits. For now, that will be the last piece of the equation, because I’m not in my final room they will go in. Id need to know the room I have to work with, spl etc. 3 Jubilees across will take up a lot of room. To many what ifs. Subs are the one thing that seem to be evolving the most. From just 5 years ago there has been a lot more designs. Hopefully someone will have one closer to my needs when I’m ready💪
  14. Nothing for now, we just moved and have another 1-2 years before we settle. The final room will determine what I end up with ultimately. If I were to pull the trigger right now, I’d be building two little wreckers. If the drivers were available I’d also consider gjallerhorns. Since we do a fair share of movies, those seem to be one of the best diy setups that a horn loaded system has to offer. I frequently visit databass and avs as well to see if anyone has created something new/improved. Have bookmarks of my top 10 choices for now. If I had to buy completed, I’d maybe lean JTR. So who knows, maybe in that time Klipsch will release a horn sub that goes deeper than the 1802/1502. My my ultimate goal is to have matching LCR Jubes, la scala surrounds and horn subs. I already have one pair of la scala and the room will determine if I get 2-3 more. Having a theater that is entirely horn loaded would be pretty sweet. After my next purchase I will be well on my way there. 👍
  15. The old Jalopy uses a d75a for both Horn and bass bin. I had a spare motor, which made the rice krispy noises of snap, crackle and pop, so it’s been shelved for a rebuild. Borrowed time on the others I feel.
