    Outside of cost, what would be the deciding factor between these three units?  One would think that distortion levels would take into play.  But how does one understand what that may be? is is it even relevant?  To me it seems that the extra out put with one or two higher frequency may be the winner.  At this point, maybe cost and ease of build comes into play.  



    The Marty’s dig a hair deeper but don’t have near the mid bass authority and cleanliness of the devastators.

    Thanks!  I didn't realize it was a ported horn until it came up in a conversation the other day.  I did know that I liked what I heard and will be very curious about your impressions when you have that and the devastators.  

    I have racked my brain to find a matching sub and not lose low freq fidelity. I really hope adding the devs is a good choice. If I can’t tell the difference between the two I may replace the 1802 with 3 devs. 3 will fit exactly where the 1802 does. Or I may decide it’s enough bass and add tactile transducers.

    You go for it.  Does anyone have a picture of what the 1802 looks like on the inside?  I've heard it, but never seen a plan or inside view.


    Waiting on a shipping quote on some flat packs now.  Is anyone driving to the east coast from California with a big truck, van or trailer?  LOL

    These 3 in the same room? Yowzer!

    I wanted to strengthen the output below the 28ish hz port tune of the 1802. I get output below 20hz but when you crank it the 1802 runs out of gas. The devs will help with that. And more overhead everywhere. And smoother room response. Plus it just seems really fun.

  5. My boxes should be here today. Went with the eminence nsw6021-6 drivers. They have the most bottom end of the lavoce and b&c. These will be in the back of the room on their side behind the couch. The 1802 is still up front. 

    The price was about the same for the 1802 with crown xls2002 as the dual dev birch flat packs, eminence drivers, and nx6000 amp. Around $3500. I’m interested to see how well the devs do with my Jubes and 1802.

    Mine is 18" x 24" x 6'.  The 24" dimension is the variable one, wider gives you a flatter response according to Bill.

    sounds great. I have the plans the the low profile myself. Wasn’t sure where the sweet spot was for the variable measurement. There’s less info on the LP as far as performance when going oversize.

    There are a couple sit-3's still for sale for just around your price point... last ones available I believe. I would be inclined to go that way myself.

     I second this. Can’t wait to own sit monoblocks someday for my k402s.

    OK, here you go. Easy! Turns out that 15C driver is flatter in the shallow box (minus 5.5") with same Cornwall ports. You only give up 10 Hz. on the bottom end, so no big deal there. Go forth and conquer!



    That makes me wanna get started ahead of schedule. 


    The port would be changed some I think. The length from the inside back of the cab to the beginning of the port is 4”. Length of port at 10”. So would we be shortening the port a bit as well?

    Score the veneer with a sraightedge, cut the cabinet just proud of that, fasten new cleats inside, maybe hog out the shelf with a jigsaw if necessary, and screw the back back on.  Why are you asking here?

    because making such a modification would be redesigning the entire speaker.

    Why not try a Chorus I?

    If I'm not mistaken, sans riser they should be about same height but less depth

    Im kinda stuck with the height and width at this point.

  11. I’d be interested in building new Cornwall boxes that are full height and width, but reducing the depth to around 10.5”. So basically 5” less depth than factory. Looks like I’ll be reducing the volume around 33%. Is this something I should model to come up with a port length or blindly hack off the extra depth? I do not require them to dig deep in my application. I’d be leaning toward using a 15c woofer. 

    For those of you that are wondering why. These are my side surround channels. They are inset into the walls 3.5” already. I’m interested in having them protrude less into the room freeing up walking space. Also getting the horn/woofer that much further from my ear. I am limited by my 16’ room width. Also I’d like to have a new motorboard I can mount my k510s flush in. And move the woofer higher to be closer to the HF horn. This could be advantageous in setting up phase alignment. 

  12. I think the winning combination for Jubes after reading every piece of info with the word jubilee in it on the internet during my journey is xilica active crossover, radian 950BePb, and first watt on the k402.


    As seen in this thread you can see the trend. Jubes run passively just leaves way too much performance on the table.


    I have the non beryllium radian 950s and love them dearly. I can’t wait to upgrade the Jubes to the Be version and move the standard radians into my k510 cornwall surrounds. The Radian drivers are much more affordable than TAD, you’re buying a new driver rather than used, they currently in production, have a beryllium option, considered equal performance to TAD, etc. 


    There are just gobs and gobs of info out there why first watt amps are so fantastic.

    That mid horn appears to be scaled up a bit from the one in my Fortes, though I'm not with them at the moment where I could see.  I'm thinking that horn would be a bit wider than a 12" woofer and that that's not the case with mine.


    Perhaps basically a 510 with alternate throatage?


    Looks to be the same k702 as used in the kpt8060h. Might have a different driver on it though.
