Paul Klipsch designed the Klipschorn 60+ years ago. (give/take a couple weeks
) He pretty mush started it from scratch as best I know. It is one of the longest continueously made speakers made.
He set out now, with what turned out to be almost 50 years of experience behind him to create something better than one of the longest production models around. He wanted to take the Klipschorn back to a 2-way design.
After successfully creating the Jubilee however, he passed away soon after. As I understand, the company didn't want to mess with it for residential use so, they put it into their Cinema lineup. (how impressive is it that a speaker designed for home
use, is good enough to go into a cinema lineup?)
I had dinner once with Roy Delgado (PWK's right hand man and co-creator of the Jubilee) and Roy stated that he felt the Jubilee was the pinnacle of sound that Klipsch could provide.
Mind you he's a horn-head so the Palladiums get passed because of the benefits of the bass horn.
Point being.... if you like something with staying power, the Khorn as been around with updates, for decades. Today, you can buy (for less money I might add) the speaker intended to improve and replace it.
My guess is it will be around for a while as well. Especially since it's PWK's last creation.
It's well worth a listen. Heck....call me & I'll hold my cell phone up to them
