My Jubilee's are almost a year old now. In the beginning I listened to them with the out of the box setting on the Xilica 4080. They sounded great! About 4 months in I got generous support from ChrisA here and utilized REW and tuned them to my listening room. This took them to another level. Another month or so and I added dual Sunfire subs to get the bottom lowered since I don't have them corner loaded. Leveled up again. Then a month or so ago I installed a pair of the Celestion AXi 2050 drivers and did another round of tuning with ChrisA. I am very satisfied with the system and feel very fortunate that I was able to pull the trigger when I did.
I think its great that Roy and Klipsch continue to improve the heritage line and have placed the new Jubilee's at the top. It seems the pricing may be the result of the estimation of the value these bring to the high end market. I do know that if mine were priced in that neighborhood, I would not have them. I am at about 11k all in on mine and am OK with that, I don't think the bang for the buck can be beat at that price assuming you like horn based systems.
