I would say that in lower part it's no longer Jubilee but something that looks similar to it. If it sounds fine then OK. Esthetics is controversial for me.

Form new ideas I have loved The Fifteens (RIP) look but this one is on opposite side.

For me veneered Pro Jubilee version is nicer then this one.

No longer a jubilee?  Says who?

am I mistaken, or does the old LF section have a longer horn path...

My thoughts exactly! Also, the back and front waves traverse through the same folded horn? Wonder if it will be available for audition in Indianapolis or Hope. I am willing to make the drive...

I'm guessing no at the current time for obvious reasons.

I did say "will"... in the summer, post Covid. I am hoping maybe ABT in the Chicago area will show a pair.

Hopefully a pair will be available to audition soon. I'd love to hear a pair.

Very excited for Roy and for Klipsch. Jubilee it is, and really hope it is a smashing success!  

Any videos of the Jubilee at CES?

What would be the perfect sized room for Jubilees and how far apart?

Let me go measure my music room and I will get back to you.

 

Hey Roger!

It's virtual this year Roger, that video at the top was the official CES video.

Whoever chooses the fabrics and veneers for Klipsch has great taste.

Dolby Atmos for my car?  Awesome!  Would be even better to get Klipsch speakers for my cars.

They are partnering, in some form, with Panasonic. The announcement mentioned "OEM" several times, so my speculation is that it will be an option on some new vehicles in the future. They didn't mention anything specific but the video showed a SUV size vehicle.

 

In the past they (Voxx) have had various contracts with various manufacturers for OEM. Not sure what time frames would be on this. I will start a thread with the video about this on a different thread.

Image of the compression driver and phase plug from the Klipsch CES video. The new Jubilee is very special, from top to bottom.

You might say it’s not the original Jubilee, but that wasn’t the first version, either, since the version that I think was the first (the one in the familiar picture with PWK) had a K-403 tweeter horn and covered LF openings.  There was an original production La Scala, but those haven’t been made since 2005.  The 2006-on model is called the La Scala II, and it’s certainly a La Scala.

 

In the case of the 2021 Jubilee, it’s the first production home model, as opposed to the earlier Pro model that was not generally available. That, plus the fact that Roy calls it the Jubilee, settles the argument for me.  Or the difference of opinion, if you prefer.

 

As for the looks of the 2021 Jubilee, I suggest we wait until we’ve seen more pictures, from different angles and in different lighting conditions, before we form a real opinion on how we feel about its looks.  Impressions from people who’ve actually seen them counts, too, since photos can be misleading.
