    I'm not using wings since I cross to tapped horn subwoofers at 40 Hz, which have -3 dB response at 14.5 Hz

    Chris:

     

    Thank you for the reply. I hope you don't mind an additional question. In the drawing at the top I see the wings in blue - are the thick black lines the room corner of a false corner?

     

    Okay your answer on tapped horn sub-woofers are very interesting. I have already started researching as this solution looks like more fun.


  2. I have searched the forum and found many articles on the KHorn and false corners but I am still not sure they can be used with Jubilees.

    • Can the Jubilees use false corners?
    • Would the size of the corner need to be different than that described in "Dope for Hope"?
    • Is anyone using false corners with Jubilees and how is that working?

     

    My room is not perfect as my best wall has fieldstone on it with a ledge that sticks out about 15 inches which keeps the bass bins away from the walls. Thoughts?

    I can't wait to hear these. As for your next project, chorus III :D please

    I heard the Forte III's on the pilgrimage and to me they had an amazing sound stage, better than my Chorus II's. A no I brainer to me as I looked into buying them but got side tracked by the Jubilee's. The new Forte's are a bargain at their price point and I am recommending them to my friends. I can only think a Chorus III would make a great option for those a little more bass hungry and hopefully worth their development. So many choices - life is good.

    When you think about the number of people using room correction software nowadays--this isn't much a stretch of that concept.  And the listening results are typically spectacular doing it this way.

    Chris:

     

    You couldn't be more right on this one. The last config you sent me is pretty awesome. I played a CD on the Jub's for my wife last night and she commented on hearing the plastic sound of the pick popping on the strings and you could hear the hand clapping moving around the microphone. And my room is not optimal so I know when I do get a better room the sound will improve again, without a soldering iron.

  5. I do intend to try tubes on the 402's to see what that sounds like. Since my Jubilees came with K691's getting a passive was too much of a challenge for me and did not seem like Roy was in favor of passives - I don't want to speak for Roy though. I was surprised how well the SS amps open up the sound stage with the Jubilees, something I had to use tubes for on the Chorus II's. (Same SS amps on Jub's originally purchased for the Chorus II's.)

     

    I will follow the threads talking about and reviewing the Hypex nCore to see if that will be my next direction - I have two kids to get through college so I am wondering about their cost and it may be time to start saving for them. I really enjoy learning on this forum but it is starting to lower my WAF.

    Been on a straight Jube diet since mid-February so when this opportunity presented itself I didn't think long. Been using all SS on the Jubes for a month or two but this weekend I can envision placing the LaScalla with a tube amp and have a listen.

    It is hard to listen to other speakers when you have Jubilees. After I was convinced by forum members to do the active Jubilees instead of passives with tubes I pulled my wife's SS amps for the Xilica and have not looked back. So earlier week I fired up the tubes on the Chorus II's and realized I have two really good systems. Life is good in America.

    10 years ago you could not talk about this stuff here, times sure have changed for the better. For those who were not here, trust me, jubes were the black sheep of the family to put it mildly.

    I am surprised to hear this as the forum members here convinced me to go for the Jub's which I did on faith and then heard them at the pilgrimage this year. While setup is not as straightforward as say my Chorus II's, having Chris A and Coytee help me out made all the difference in the world. I don't do any social media except this site and am tired of the political nightmare going on with "both" sides. Friendly place here and if not careful you will learn something.

    One day I might try more power, but I would first have to fix the china cabinet in the back corner 34' away,

    I was wondering how many of us had this issue. My wife's china cabinet reminds me of the vibrating football game I think Mattel made in the 60's. :)

     

    Even worse when the home theater gets going with 2 subs. I can walk through the house and hear doors vibrating in their frames which is surly a sign of adequate amplifier power. I have read here that some have as many as four or more subs - is everything glued down - earthquake proof? Sounds like fun!


  9. On another note I was reading in another forum topic about blowing out a Klipsch speaker with 250 watts with many posting that was way too much power "idiot power" for corner speakers. So I'm coming clean right here - I am using 600 watts per channel on my Jub's so be aware I might be an idiot. Sounds great though. :)

    This will be different for everyone, but I'm happy to share my XConsole settings for my Xilica XP-4080

     

    Just for fun I tried the settings from page 3 on my Jub's and it was lifeless, so much so my wife commented and said change it back.. 

     

    I reloaded the settings that Chris configured for me and everything opened back up. Truly amazing how different rooms can be. Thanks again Chris! I have read through some of the posts on the number of PEQ's affecting sound. My configuration has more than 8 PEQ's per channel so using both input and outputs for this. It got better every time Chris sent updates so my experience seems to go along with Chris's posts.

     

    I will say it is really cool to be able to change so many crossover settings and compare them with others while not needing a soldering iron - really liking the Xilica. Cory was awesome to deal with at Metropolis Lake Outfitters as well.

    Today I get to hook it up and fight with the longtubes. 

     

    That was a knuckle buster in my Crn Vic - used some Super Comps designed for another car and did a little cutting and welding which is one of the reasons I wrapped them - prettier that way. Good luck and if you don't mind please keep posting your updates - builds are very cool!

    My Grandfather purchased this car new in December of 1954. I have owned it since 1984. Here is a picture of my son taking possession a few weeks ago. Four generations - one car - a million memories.

     

    I think - hands down that is the best car guy story you can tell.

    What have you done to it?

    Nice mustang and that will be fun. Let us know how the install goes.

     

    I understand the parts issues as there are almost no Crown Victoria performance parts, imagine that. The engine was build by Keith Craft Racing, not to to far from Hope AR, and is a 351 Windsor stroked to 410 with ~ 500 HP and Torque numbers - capable of 250 more on giggle juice. It does suck down about a gallon in a 1/4 mile pass. It runs the original AOD but with Kevlar parts and hardened shafts and outputs to a set of TractionLok'ed 410's.

     

    While going down the track is totally fun I really enjoy putting street tires on it to do burnouts. The only questions are how much tire smoke do you want and at what pitch should the tires sing - "drifts" well too. Admittedly it is funny to see peoples reactions - usually laughter after seeing the hood scoop but jaw drops when hearing the somewhat streetable cam. I call it stupid power and as you can see it is a driver not a show car. It does still ride like a Crown Vic - smoooooth.

     

    I am loving the other hot rods being shown!!!

  14. I was really enjoying this thread but it has been quiet for many days now so I thought I would start some fun with my non-FORD forum friends - not looking to create enemies though. So attached is my Hemi-killer that I built from my mom's car about 17 years ago. I use to drag race it at the track to annoy my Chevy friends with muscle cars. Nothing like coming out of the end of the track ahead of your buddies. :)

     

    P.S. I have learned to not be to uppity as you don't know what the next guy is running.

  15. I plan on using a pair of bridged XLS1500's on the bass bins of my Jubilees but won't be able try it for about 10 days. Am going to try both SS and tubes on the 402. I know that does not help now but I will follow up on what I learn as I am just starting this journey. I have several configurations to try.

     

    I use 1500's in my PA systems and they do sound good. I have compared them with Peavey, Behringer, QSC, and Pyle - the Crown's are, to me, better with vocals if not the whole range.

    As to that blower Chevy uses the blown LT4 Corvette engine in the ZL1 Camaro.

     

    Yes, but is it covered in chrome and sticking out of the hood with dual quads and velocity stacks on top. A proper blower must obstruct some of your forward vision - oh and whine pretty loud. ;)
