  1. My McIntosh cabinets are as you describe, wide rectangle with rounded corners. It may be a custom aftermarket for McIntosh equipment and you can look up the measurements to see what it fits - I have a couple of websites if you need them.Here is an example http://www.mcintoshcompendium.com/mp-cabinets.htm P.S. That is a nice looking cabinet - GLWS
  2. I've had a 1502 for a couple of months now and you are correct it does work great with Jubilees. Mine are set to crossover at 50Hz and am using an amp similar to the one @dtel uses although I have the Xilica controller. Its hard for me to explain what the 1502 does but it is clean and accurate and timbre is right, on top of that it just keeps going as long as the power is clean. I was listening to the Wishbone Ash Argus album and the bass is so right I had to switch from playing air guitar to air bass. I highly recommend the 1502 and is perfect fit for Jubilees.
  3. I am fond of the EPIC series as well. That looks like a great setup and I do wonder if you have trouble with those figurines "walking around"? Thanks for the picture.
  4. Good Evening. Thought I would chime in with an album I had not heard in many years. My brother played this quite a bit when I was a teenager and I had forgotten how good it was. Artist Wishbone Ash Album Argus
  5. Great question @Coytee, I'm curious about this as well. I think some of the wood finishes look amazing like the new museum edition speakers and grills. Hopefully the Historian @JRH can give us the low down on these questions.

    The RF-7 III do sound great, very nice upgrade. I like the seating as well. What projector are you using?
  7. Additionally the original spec sheet is available on the Klipsch site and you can follow this link or put Chorus in the search on the Klipsch site - not this forum site. https://www.klipsch.com/products/chorus-ii-floorstanding-speaker
  8. @Ragsdale4 first welcome to the forum. I believe you have the Chorus II's since the Chorus I's had ports instead of the passive radiators. I bought my Chorus II's in 1991 and they are great speakers. The front grill is held on by magnets to make removing the cover easy. I use a butter knife or other smooth thin object to slide in between the grill and the speaker edge to pop the grill out far enough to get a grip on it and then pull it away from the speaker - I take the grill off every time I listen to them, which is often.

    What I Got Today!

    I am not sure how many were made. If you are interested contact Cory at @MetropolisLakeOutfitters as he was the one I got mine from and I do recommend him - no affiliation. except as a customer and I met him at several Klipsch Pilgrimages. I have had two days with it now and will say it is amazing. I was having bass issues with my Jubilees and this more than cured it. My wife commented on how much of the lower octave was missing when we muted the 1502 - clearly hearing the lower notes of a stand-up bass with the proper tone and the kick drum now kicks. The 1502's affect is clean notes at low volumes and jaw dropping power when given 1000+ watts to work with. Sort of a "Tim the Tool Man" approach.

    I really agree, no booming mud but clean bass with every note well defined. Once the gain was close I was playing some Dream Theater and when a song started the bass startled me. I have made it to the proper levels now after beating my eardrums for a couple of hours for fun. Grand Funk Railroad sounds especially nice. Its a relearning thing due to the old direct radiator subs that I turned up too high trying to find the correct tone that was never there. I still have my smile going and thankfully high WAF, she did help me bring it into the house. She’s a keeper.

    What I Got Today!

    Yes, a lift gate. It was not easy as it we bigger than the gate itself. The driver was great just like the one that delivered the Jubilees from R&L.

    What I Got Today!

    Received another speaker from Klipsch today, a 1502, that I needed to complete my Jubilees. I had already started to open it before I remembered to take some pictures. The shipper R&L Trucking was awesome and put it in my carport. After the packaging was removed and I walked around it and that smile formed which has not gone away yet. The music room remains a mess but most of it is back together. I have reconfigured the Xilica as per @Chief bonehead and am working on gain structure. My first impression is Wow there is music in that bottom octave and it is good. Some of the bass is very nuanced and some is punchy fast while being very clean and having correct tone. I'm using a Crown amp rated at 1500 watts at 4 Ohms bridged. I agree with @dtel that the china cabinet needs to be watched as I have already been reprimanded by my wife. Works like that vibrating football game we had as kids. The first music played was Gotthard's Domino Effect CD. I want to thank @MetropolisLakeOutfitters for putting up with me asking for one of these every couple of weeks and then actually getting one for me. I recommend them highly.
  13. Great place to stay with a friendly staff. Breakfast is decent as well.
  14. Agree with you on that Emille for sure and think @Mila1924 does too or would not have the Forte I's - don't give up the journey before you start it.
