Hello all!

The short of it is that I have a 20 x 20 square room that I'm trying to decide on what heritage line to use. I have perfectly good corners for Khorns OR perhaps I should do built-in LaScalas or Jubilees? I am not opposed to using a separate sub but would prefer not to. Besides 2 channel listening, these speakers will also be my mains for HT use. I will be fabricating whichever model I (we) decide on from plans found here :)

I didn't elaborate too much as I know long reads are no fun and I fully expect there'll be a ton of questions from you guys. I've been lurking here and on other audio forums for quite some time and now it's time for me to formulate a plan.

Thanks in advance for any and all input!

You'll be fabricating the model as in making the speaker yourself (or having it done)?

LaScala might be the easiest, jubilee the best foundation and the Khorn perhaps the most involved. Drivers on Lascalla / Khorn are probably the easiest to obtain and the drivers on the Jubilee might be a bit more difficult.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! I'll be building them myself. I only found some incomplete LaScala plans, German Khorns and NO jubilee. Any idea where I can get hold of complete, accurate, American measurements with English instructions? Thanks again - everyone's time is valuable and I genuinely appreciate you taking time out of your day to reply :)

Pete, I know its been little while since you posted. If you haven't made a decision and started your build, pm me as I can give some advice based on personal experience.

If I can't build it or fix it, I really don't want it. I have found that I need to start with something that works in the beginning.
