Having listened to both the Jubilee and the K-horn on many occasions, I would take the Jubilee every day and twice on Sunday, no contest. As far as plans, there are none that I am aware of, however some enterprising individuals have reverse engineered them based on the patents and measurements off the real deal.
The K-402 horn is what makes the Jubilee. Similar to JBL and others, you can purchase the horn loaded bass cabinet with different horns, 2 way with K510 horn, 2 way with K402, 3 way with K402 + K510. Also, the K402 can be purchased * must be with compression driver * alone.
They are sold through commercial cinema dealers, no home product dealer will be able to order or price them.
The 2 way K402 version is the most desirable for home cinema / listening room. ( actively crossed )
Droogne, I agree with everything Michael has said, he's pretty much nailed it.
I owned Khorns for 6 years and now have owned Jubilee's for over 10 years.....there's no going back.
If you really want to up the game, you really have to get the K402 as that is (in my opinion) the magic sauce of the Jubilee.
You can mate it with a LaScala bass bin, Jubilee bass bin, MWM bass bin or other bass bins....it will mate with quite a variety of different bins.
My thought would be, do what you have to do.... or change gears totally for a different end design. You could perhaps get by with the smaller and less expensive K510 but the King of the sound is the 402. I recall having read once where the designer of both of them said they were designed to sound the same, just have a lower cutoff for the larger horn.
If you are always on-axis with the horn, the 510 might make you happy. If you suffer audio nirvosa and will always be curious about the 'new & improved' then skip the (also expensive) 510 and just get the 402.
You could perhaps mate it with something you already have laying about (which is why I mentioned it mates well with a variety of bass bins)
