  2. You could do the front and rear Atmos speakers as height speakers and use more Heresy. Sometimes you have to think out of the box. 🙂 This is what I did for my Palladium series theater. I did the same heights in the rear.
  3. Care to elaborate on the differences?
  4. The Celestion driver is available on Parts Express. Of course this won't have Roy's external wide dispersion phase plug that will be in the new Jubilee. https://www.parts-express.com/Celestion-Axi2050-AxiPerodic-2-Wide-Bandwidth-Compression-Driver-4-Bolt-294-2142 @Chris A on the Forum has already tried it with his pro Jubilee. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/199267-celestion-axi2050-2-compression-driver-on-k-402-horn-and-jubilee-bass-bin/
  5. I just checked my KLF-30 and both have the orange ring in the throat. Looks like it might be the inner edge of a gasket.
  6. I haven't taken apart the midrange assembly in mine so I'm not sure what's going on there. However, you can use the diaphragm replacement instructions on the Crites website to take it apart and see if anything looks wrong: https://critesspeakers.com/k-53_diaphragm_replacement.html. FYI, you may be able to get replacement midrange diaphragms if the one is bad. This is the factory one but Simply Speakers is currently out of stock: https://www.simplyspeakers.com/klipsch-replacement-speaker-diaphragm-127120.html. You can get the part number and email Klipsch to see if they have any in stock. I think Cites has (or had as I don't see any way to order it) one as well: https://critesspeakers.com/klipsch_midrange.html. Maybe call or email them.
  7. @ClaudeJ1 - My understanding is that Roy was not consulted about the renderings in the video released for CES placing the new Jubilee away from the corners. In a discussion I had with Roy on Facebook he said the new Jubilee is like the enclosed back Klipschorn AK6 or the "Pro" version of the Jubilee, it doesn't have to be tight against the corner but still needs to be near the corner (i.e., in 1/8 space). These are still corner horns and would also need false corners to be placed away from the room corners.
  8. The KLF-20 and 30 are two of the best bang for you bucks speakers that Klipsch ever made. I have a pair of each and they were my mains for years. (That was until I made the mistake of listening to some Klipsch Palladium series speakers and had to have them 🙂. I still have the KLFs but they are in secondary systems now.) If they don't already have them I suggest getting titanium tweeter diaphragms for them, either Crites or the Klipsch ones (used in the Heresy III). I put the Crites ones in mine. I think they are a big improvement over the stock poly ones.

  10. Those would be the closest sonic match to kg4. @Frzninvt mentioned the KG 2.2 or 2.5 but in my opinion those would not be a good match. I've owned kg4 and briefly owned a KG 2.2V (the video shielded version). I don't think that circular tweeter would match kg4 at all. I actually found it kind of harsh. I quickly traded it in for an Academy. I didn't find the Academy a great match for the Klipsch 3-way speakers that I had at the time (original Forte) but its sound reminded a lot of the kg3 and kg4. Some of the larger .2 and .5 kg line speakers with rectangular horns might match decently but those would be taller than a third kg4.
  11. I email Klipsch support again since I hadn't received my replacement poster yet. The reply I got on September 17 was this: "We appreciate your patience. We finally got a delivery of these that are suitable. They should be shipping in the next few weeks." So, hopefully they will be available again soon.
  12. There it is. I couldn't find that post again with Facebook's horrible search. This post by Cory why I mentioned above that PHT had 402s in stock.
  13. I agree on the Academy if you can't do a third kg4. A kg3 would be close too. I always thought the Academy sounded more like the original kg series (no decimal point models) than the 3-way speakers for which it was supposedly a match. I don't think anything recent would match well.
  14. If you want the sound of a K-402 then why not get some K-402s? I think Paducah Home Theater has some in stock.
  15. I'm assuming this was just a typo. These 70th Anniversary, right? https://www.klipsch.com/products/la-scala-70th-anniversary-edition
