  1. >>The 1504-4s are crude and tough Meaning, the fidelity is suffering? I'm using my FH1s from 70-250hz. I added a bit of felt damping sheets to the doghouse -- it had no damping at all. Is the JBL 2226H a significant improvement over the Peavey driver in terms of fidelity in home use? Seriously considering to try other woofers but not for the sake of trying. The other woofers mentioned here -- what improvement do they bring over the stock 1504 driver?
  2. While on the topic of FH-1s, which I recently acquired, how does the original Peavey BW 1504 compare to the above mentioned drivers? My FH1s came with the original 1504 driver but I sure would like to know if it's worth replacing it, for better performance! The 1504 looks like a well made 15" Herman
  3. James, have you auditioned one or going off of the internet resources?
  4. No I don't. Or maybe I do. Either way those are a little bit insane! What model is that?
  5. Thanks Claude, the Quarter Pie horn looks interesting. Also, the "Juliebee" by "ajsons" looks like a candidate. Anyone know what happened with that project and if anyone actually built one?
  6. Wonder if ajsons finished his Julibees that looked so interesting... Or kept his University Classics horns?
  7. Are there performance differences between University Classic and Dean? Has anyone compared these to LaScalas or other folded horns discussed here?
  8. ClaudeJ1, are there recommended driver replacements if the used FH-1 boxes are beat (to make the most out of FH-1, fidelity)?
  9. I want to know everything I can, short of buying all of these and comparing them side-by-side. On a more serious note though, I do have a few specific questions: For the jubilees, what part of the design/folding accounts for the significant peaks between 70 and 300 Hz? If anyone has experience with “university dean”, how does it compare sound wise and in bandwidth to the other folded horns mentioned in this thread? And, finally, but a fair question to ask: Other than a straight full exponential horn what would be your horn of choice to use below a multi cell? For reasonable purposes we can set the bandwidth 70 to 400 Hz, Since I have some good subs. thanks. herman
  10. Regarding the Jubilee: what causes the significant peaks in the frequency responce 70-300. Looks severe (going off online measurement posts). Is this an issue, sonically? The California bass horn looks very competent but will the multiple sharp folds cause issues when crossing at 400hz? The "dean" looks good but has anyone heard one?
  11. Guys, wanted to ask for your thoughts on the folded horns in the title because I am considering those, as the three candidates. Possibly ,I am missing some exotic options but all I need is this: To cover nicely a 60-400hz, below my multicell horns. Gonna use 6 or 12 db/oct filters, no steep filters. The 60-400 range is critical in my opinion and must be of great fidelity, clear, natural. etc. Flat response would be nice as I do not like to use EQ if at all possible. The folded horns may not be the best option for the multicell midrange but I don't know if Onken style cab is any better. Why the three examples I chose? U. Dean -- least amount of sharp folds (looking at the plans) Jubilee -- just see good feedback on it FH1 -- seems most people consider it as good or better than LaScala, so it's on the list. Who has compared any of the above?
  12. Perhaps it's a better idea to use LaScalas below K-402 and stick a Jubilee in a corner to cover below 60hz?
  13. Bass section only, one pair needed. Would consider clones.
  14. Chris, I have some basic pink noise room measurements of my current system. What type of measurement would you say I need to take? Something that will help me determine if the Jubilee is right for my room or not?
  15. Guys, thanks for the kind offers to visit you! I might take you up in that. FYI, my current system (see image) Highs: Funktion One Res 1.5 tweeter Mids: Funktion One Res 3 mid The Jubilee would theoretically cross over to the Res3 midrange horn at 230hz, 12db/oct Bessel filter. Coytee, that's a very kind offer. I'll talk to my wife, maybe we can plan a road trip. We like road trips I do!
  16. Would it be possible to contact # 17. Oak Forest IL 2-way/K69 Passive? I am in Chicago and would be interested in hearing anyone's Jubilee by the way. Herman
  17. Chris A, this is home use but higher that normal listening levels. 500sq ft room. Not concert levels by any measure, though. Renting a pair would be an excellent start, if that is possible. I'll have to call Klipsch and ask. Otherwise, I'd be willing to drive a bit and hear them. How close do they need to be to the corner? Right in the corner or some maximum specified distance?
  18. I thought the Jubilee is a Cinema product coming from the professional part of Klipsch...
  19. Current 4-way system is already actively quad-amped. Although I am using DSP for the crossover, and it's not as transparent as using no DSP, it will be helpful to delay the mids and highs, if the Jubilee gets installed.
  20. I am in Chicago. I would like to hear the Jubilees. Either to rent them for a few days or visit someone who has them set up. Can you recommend a way to do that? Thanks
  21. Hello, I've been thinking about trying the Jubilee bass bins. The idea I have is to replace my bass channel (Aura 1808 in reflex box) together with midbass channel (Funktion One F115) with a single Jubilee channel. Of course I'm talking about stereo pair. The frequency range that I need to have covered is 30-250hz. FYI Funktion One F115: https://www.funktion-one.com/products/f115-mk2/ There are a couple of theoretical benefits that I see going from two to one channel in that range: 1. no crossover from 30-250 hz. 2. single elegant solution, use of a horn in conjunction with room corner 3. horn loaded bass + midbass My current bass+midbass is OK but definitely has some sonic issues. The 1808 subs, I have crossing over at 50hz to midbass boxes. This is a pretty seamless transition and does not cause problems in my view. Also this combination never runs out of steam and keeps it's composure at any sale levels in my listening space. The issue is the upper range of the midbass, around 250Hz where it begins to lose definition and starts to sound closed in and thick. So a one channel solution that is proper sounding in it's upper range would be most interesting, considering that the Jubilee is designed to go up to 400hz. This is my concept based on the Jubilee specs and is no way based on real sonic proof of the concept. I have no experience with Jubilee so I am asking for thoughts on this design and the sonics from those who have heard the Jubilee bass bins covering 30-250hz. Also, it would be interesting to hear your views (even theoretical evaluation) of such an approach as the Jubilee offers. Thanks. Herman
