You mean having a pair of Khorns built for you? If so, read on....if not...ignore & pardon me.

If that is what you mean, then I'd halt the horses right there and look up the Jubilee and have a pair of those built. Not only will they be easier to build, they will pretty much crush the Khorn. In case you don't know, the Jubilee was originally designed to become the Khorn II however, PWK felt it bested the Khorn by such a margin that it deserved its own place in the lineup. You can find it in the Cinema line.

Side note: I've owned LaScalas for about 38 years, (formerly owned) Khorns for about 6 years and have now owned the Jubilee's for 11 years. I have not missed the Khorns for 45 nano-seconds since their replacement by the Jubilee's so I've got some listening behind my comments.

Also, the Jubilee won't be as corner dependent as the Khorn is. (though it still likes a good corner for maximum bass extension, it is a lot more flexible with it's placement)

Heck, why not throw some more spaghetti on the wall for you...

I don't recall....you already have LaScalas?

If so...keep them, sell the K400/77. Put those funds towards the K402 and buy a top-notch horn loaded subwoofer.

Probably the most cost efficient way to get to this specific end sound and it will simply crush most oncomers.

Or, sell the LaScala and have a shorter bass bin built that won't resonate, and then do above.

(keep in mind this is all presumed that you'd go active which is more wires & "stuff")

....and how cool would it be when your friends come over and realize your "tweeter" is bigger than their entire speaker!

I would love to add Atmos, but my AVR (Onkyo RZ900) only support a max 7.2 non-Atmos or 5.2.2 Atmos configuration.
Great system....enjoy.

A jubilee would be awesome, but could I use the parts of the KHorn? Because shipping in all new parts from the US will be very very costly, and I doubt I will ever find all parts here in Europe. Would be willing to ship in the horn. Also not sure it the casket builder is able to make jubilees, but will definitely ask!

EDIT: you say they are easier to build, so this guy will be probably be able to make a jubilee too.

Does that work as a tweeter and midrange?

Seems the Jubilee is a much more simple build. The sound travels on the same plane throughout the process instead of two planes. (sound comes out and bends around to the front whereas, if I recall correctly with the Khorn, the sound first goes UP, then changes direction to sideways and then comes out)

I didn't know you weren't 'domestic'. No, they don't use the same parts.... the Jubilee uses the 12" K31 driver (actually it uses a pair of them per cabinet) unlike the Khorn which uses a single K33, 15" driver.

One of the design goals for the bass bin is/was to raise the crossover point so it could be taken back to a 2-way.

You could always use the LaScala top end until you got the chance to buy a pair of K510's or (the best choice) the K402.

The "JubeScala" is the large K02 horn atop the LaScala bass bin.... if the stock LaScala will make you happy, the K402 on top will still drop your jaw to the floor.

That said, there are certainly some realities you have to deal with... if you could find a Klipsch Cinema dealer somewhere, you might have better access than you think. (then again, I don't really know).

Was just trying to throw some ideas out for you while you are in the investigation stage.

Yes. This is why the coherency is a lot better....you're totally losing a crossover point. AND, the sound "comes together" much closer to the speaker so you can have it sound better in a smaller room!!

For the Jubilee, the K402 (with the K69 driver which has recently been replaced so I don't know the current values)

Anyway, for the Jubilee with the K402/K69, it's crossed at 380Hz and the K402 goes from 380 on up.

For the JubeScala with the K402/K69, it's crossed at 470Hz and goes from there on up.

The horn is a 2" throat so is using a large format driver. I think the diaphragm on these drivers is three or maybe four inches (I don't know)

Having heard them and owned them for 11 years, all I can say is trust me....that's not crossing too low for a "tweeter driver" (which is how the K69 is used on the 3-way Jubilee)

It will run you out of the room with volume before it gives out.

I just bought a 115 2 weeks ago and thinking of getting another one. This doesn't sound good and hoping its just an isolated issue. Did you call Klipsch Tech support to trouble shoot?

Thank you for your response. I didn't call them but I have opened a ticket with them. I live in holland and bought the sub from my local dealer. He will pick up the sub and send it to the repair department as it's still in its warranty.

I emailed Klipsch because I've paid a lot of money for the reference premiere line including 4 RP280's. this sub was bought 13 months ago brand new. I told them that I would rather have a new one than this unit that gets repaired.

The RF-7s are better overall than anything in the newer reference premiere lineup, but that's a given since they are also much more expensive.

They are coming out with the RF-7 III later this year. not sure if it's really worth the extra $$$
Singe RF-7 II are literally selling 2 for the price of one.

So from what I gather, going to RF-7 from RF82 is a substantial difference?
There are no stores with the rf-7 to test out.

I would say yes but agree you want to keep your eye out for the appropriate Center Channel. Fwiw, I have had RF-7s for well over a dozen years.

Get the RF-7 II and save the $$. I purchased a used pair of the first series RF-7 and wish I had not sold them. My friend later purchased a second pair of RF-7 and got a used pair of the II's. There is not much difference in the sound in his large room IMHO. I am not a "Golden Ear" but to me I would look for used or NOS RF7-II and save the extra $$.

Planning to replace my center channel with a floorstander.

Finally getting my dedicated home theater room setup. Got some suggestions to make L, C, R channels have same speakers.
I have RP280F as L and R channels and RP450C as center.
Replacing my RP450C with another RP280F.

Hope thats a good move for a dedicated home theater

Cheers
