If you could have just one speaker for the rest of your life . . . .

Recommended Posts

What one speaker would you choose?  One speaker that had to do it all.  Music, movies, whatever.  I am genuinely curious.

901's



sorry, couldn't resist
Depends on room.
Belles in my last house (over KHorns but that was major room issue). Chorus IIs very close second.

Cornwall IIIs in my current house (over Belles and KHorns) again room issues
and yes, I would love to hear Jubs

I am thinking Chorus II / Forte II might be best to beat general rooms.
I would really like to hear the Forte III vs. my new Cornwalls (in my room). Any dealer in S. Texas wanna take that as an audition sell?

My AudioADD is waaaaay too active to be able to settle on one catagory of speaker, much less one speaker within one catagory, within one manufacturer.

OK what on earth is a Jub?  Clueless and willing to admit it.

 

OK now I see it.  Jubilee.  Would those work as fronts with my RC-7 and RS-7?

K'horns, the original.  Jube has it's charms, but nothing a sub doesn't fix which is still required with Jube if you want to get to C0.  Anyone who has read the 8 points knows why the K'horn is the K'horn and not a Jube.  Within PWK's parameters the K'horn remains inherently unimprovable...until the change the laws of physics.

If I didn't have a big room Forte IIIs.  No question.   Price and size no object then Jubes.  Speaker set?  396's and an 1802.

1902 better than IB, Carl???

Different not better.  I can move an 1802 around.  IB?   Nope.  Both are incredibly clean.

At those low levels, why would you want to move it around?  Your main system IB was vented above my head but for all the world appeared to be coming from the system.  Also, while close, don't think the 1802 gets down to C0.

Hey no sets.  Just one speaker.  I guess the Jubes count although after seeing them, they look like something else.

Just thinking if I moved from one house to another I could take the 1802 with me.  The IB....... not so much.  IBs are pretty amazing though.

Ive measured 110dB at 10Hz at the main listening position.  120dB at 20Hz.  I feared for my windows.
