I am thinking of trying some Klipsch speakers with my 300b SET WE91a monoblocks. I just have to figure out how to make room for them in my NYC living space.

Have considered going the K-Horn route but have been recently and seriously forgoing the k-horns for the 2-Way Jubilees.


Vego99,
For my own information;
Where are you finding a pair of Jubilees? It was my understanding that Klipsch was no longer manufacturing the Jubilee, but I had also read that some enthusiasts were building their own. I have never had the pleasure of a Jubilee audition but would love to.
Furthermore, just to be clear to everyone, I did not, and do not, claim the Klipshorn or any Klipsch speaker is "a perfect speaker", or "the perfect speaker", but properly powered, and properly setup, they can sound special. Because of the high acclaim garnered by the Magico speaker products, and they are California based, I plan to audition some of their speakers, and maybe I would be moved to own a pair, if, I could find a "used" model I could afford. That now said, maybe someone would like to begin a " The Best speakers I've heard post".

No doubt! As I mentioned, they were the first high end speakers (k-horns) I heard that truly impressed me.

MMMC,
The Jubilee is still alive and still currently being produced!! Here's the scoop. Right now the Jubilee is being sold as a 3-way behind the screen item through the Pro/Cinema Line. Paul Klipsch's engineering apprentice Roy Delgado has been moving forward with Paul's dream of a real 2-way Jubilee for home use and was given special permission to engineer & market the 2-way home audio versions by word of mouth only. There is alot of current info on the klipsch forums as well as a Facebook page " Just Jubilees" The page is run by a guy named Cory Harrison and has been working directly with Roy with getting these ordered and out to new clients. Side note: These are not plug and play speakers, no passive xover and will need to use a Active Xover with bi-amplification. Cory and Roy have a active xover solution with pre-loaded base settings to make it more of a plug and play rig.
