  1. Chris, I'll try playing with the delay again. I set my current delay by playing a 50hz ( my xover freq) tone and separately matched levels of the jubes and the sub. I then reversed polarity of the sub and then played both the jubes and subs together increasing delay until the overall SPL was the lowest. Once done a changed the subpolarity back to normal. Perhaps there is a better way to adjust this?
  2. Mike, I did a test with some music that contained some deep notes.. Things sounded more pronounced where in the past the notes were faint. Below are the PEQ's needed to smooth the response down to 20hz. but as you can see quite a bit of boosting was needed with the PEQ's AND with the output gain to get to the output level to match the jubes. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. During my brief tests last night, i was able to get things pretty loud in the room and did not pick up any clipping or distortion.
  3. Mike, I have yet to run any 1/3rd Oct PN or warble tones yet.... I can try that. Sub is running through the Xilica and it does NOT have a high pass activated. I am using the XLS 2502 as an amp only. NO DSP functions are activated, just running in Bridged mode.
  4. update with some tweaking > ive also attached the PEQ's and level increases needed to get to this point. Seems like alot of boosting... Is this okay to do, or am i sitting in a huge null point?
  5. Here are some sweeps @mikebse2a3 and no Hi-Pass on the sub...
  6. Hoping the experts can lend a hand with figuring out an issue i'm having with the 2.1 rig. Here's the issue. When running a full frequency sweep at listening position, i'm getting a steep drop-off at 30hz. I know this subwoofer can go lower than this so not sure if its a setup issue, positioning issue or what. Some basics: Room Dimensions: 20' x 14' x 9' Jubes currently positioned on the front short wall with the 1502 sub seated behind me... My listening position is 89" from the back wall which is about 60.5 " from the face of the subwoofer. System is being run with a McIntosh Preamp > Xilica > System amps.. The sub is being run with a Crown XLS-2502. I'm running the Jubes full range with the 1502 crossing at 50hz. Attached is a pic of a recent sweep from my listening position. Thanks for the help. Erik
  7. I would have to agree! Loving my 1502!!!
  8. Hey everyone! Have a Crown D75 and it works great except for one small issue. The transformer hum / buzz is getting quite annoying. Any tips on reducing this noise? Thanks, Erik
  9. I own a pair of SX-1000 monoblocks. They are very very nice amplifiers. I've ran them through my Totem Forests and currently running them as the driving force behind Jubilee bass bins. When running them in the Totems, they did sound fantastic however....... I always swapped between them and my Latino ST-120 Tube amp. The tube amp always had that extra airiness and sparkle to it. If you were a visitor at my house you would see the tube amp being used more than the SX-1000s. In your Forte's I think you cant go wrong... Overkill yes.... if you're looking for that extra magic and for the same price even for a good used pair of SX's id recommend looking at the Latino ST-120. Erik
  10. Pair of New K691 compression drivers from my 2018 Jubliees. There are prob less than 20 hours on these drivers and are in perfect condition. $250 EACH plus shipping. If you need a 3rd i know of one avail. Erik
  11. Brand New K691 drivers from my 2018 Jubilees. There are prob less than 20 hours on these drivers. $250.00 EACH plus shipping. Side note: if you are in need of a 3rd, i know of one avail. Erik
  12. Hey Everyone, This past weekend I noticed that one of my K402 horns has some slag at the compression horn entry. There is about 1/8" of material protruding. I've got to imagine this does something to the sound, if not my OCD says it does. lol What is the best way to remove this slag and smooth the surface? Thanks, Erik
  13. You can add Oxford, PA to the list. Factory Jubilees / K691 / Active Xilica XP4080
  14. Wow Mike, looks amazing!!! Out of curiosity, does your pre-amp have a dedicated Sub output or are you some how summing L+R channels into Mono? Erik
  15. Good stuff, ill reterminate and see if i notice a difference.. Thanks, -e
  16. The McIntosh has all XLR and RCA outputs but if I were to do a xlr-rca binding 1&3 this may damage the output of the Mac if feeding a rca amplifier from the xlr output? Xilica output to rca I out of tube amp. Should I determinate the cables binding those pins? No harm?
  17. I am dealing with this issue too......... 19.5 L x 14w x 8.7H New contructed room in the basement, New Jubilees installed NO BASS. Strongly feel as if significant treatment is needed.....
  18. Babadono, From what I have read from several sources googled, there are some pieces of equipment that can be harmed binding pins 1&3. In the case of my McIntosh preamp I dont think binding would be a good idea. In the case of xilica, it sounds like you have done your research and this is not the case. Being a Jube/xilica newby... I did construct my XLR > RCA floating pin 3. If NO harm will occur, what can i expect if i bind pins 1&3. I just dont want to damage an expensive preamp or DSP Thanks, Erik
  19. Another option. www.sophiaelectric.com
  20. So I've briefly chime in here because I am in the same boat and have been doing some research. According to some sources, it may not be advisable to BIND pins one and three together as this may cause damage to the output of the preamp or xilica. Instead, a safer route is to float pin 3 ( dont solder anything to it) and just solder the shield (pin 1) directly to the barrel of the RCA Connector.
  21. Chris, Per your recommendation I did purchase the UMIK-1. It's just sitting in the box awaiting for the arrival of the new speakers. Looking forward to playing around with the settings. I'm assuming i can keep the Roy's preloaded settings saved and then mess around creating another preset? When doing measurements, do you measure one speaker at a time or measure both at the listening position?
  22. Boy, i hope this active crossover stuff is easier to do once i have it in front of me that what i'm reading.. Seems a little daunting......
