New Klipsch Jubilee, with active crossover.

New Klipsch Jubilee, with active crossover. Looks interesting. I am curious to know the price.

Lots more to this than what's in the video. I was active on the Klipsch forum when the first Jubilees were being ordered. Many changes since then. I would sure like to read a professional review. 
And see measurement… not that I am all about measurements but when you can’t hear them I like to see them. 

I believe in active crossovers. I wish more brands would have active crossovers. The passive amplification with passive crossover could be interesting. 

The 7” compressive (if I heard that right) driver is an interesting design element.

Compression driver. It means the horn has a throat that is smaller than the driver element and the air helps load the driver element keeping distortion low in it's operating area. It also causes it's own distortion but it's a trade off for efficiency. 
Klipsch website says 5” diaphragm. 7” seemed really large for a compression driver and also seemed large to be used as the mid/tweeter. JBL is using a duel 3” in their M2. It would be interesting to hear how they compare. 5” makes more sense but still seems very large. 

The advantage of having a single driver cover most of the frequency range should lead to good things assuming the highs are in control. I assume the active crossover is working it’s magic but I have to wonder if a 3 way would not have been better. 
"...I have to wonder if a 3 way would not have been better..."

The whole idea of the Jubilee is to make it a two way system where the top driver goes low enough to blend with the woofer section. It removes the crossover in the critical voice frequency range.  
I an really surprised to see a driver made by Celestion. I thought that when they sold the speaker making business and it faded into obscurity that the company had ceased to exist altogether. Are they still a force in OEM?
They look amazing....if you like speakers the size of a small shed in your livingroom! ;-)
As a design the Jubilee’s are much more interesting to me compared to the DD67000 Everest’s. Basic physics, really; the Jub’s are (more appropriately) taller, their midrange/HF horn is somewhat bigger to actually support directivity control lower in frequency and down to the cross-over to the LF section, which would also result in a sonically bigger sphere and more relaxed presentation, and not least the Jub’s are horn-loaded in their entire frequency spectrum to aid a higher efficiency (even though they use a peculiar LF horn loading of not only the front wave of the driver inside, but as well a ported section of its backwave) and more proper match with the MF/HF horn above. When you factor in that the Jub’s come in below half the price of the Everest and are an active design to boot, the choice to me is clear.
I find these fascinating, as I do with any potential "end game" speaker

at 30k+ I think they should have just gone all in a bit further and improved the esthetics starting with a better looking horn, maybe wood?

I wonder who their target market is also.  I also question if we're in diminishing returns territory against Klipschorns

very cool to me that a company can embrace modern and old school tech

@russ69 , Assuming the crossover is at 300 Hz, it is smack in the middle of the voice frequency range. 256 Hz in middle C. It is a digital active crossover so it has an ADC and DAC built in. This way they can also smooth out the frequency response and adjust group delay. No bad things but because it has to be done digitally many analog junkies are going to revolt.
If you're near Audio Video Therapy in Nashua NH this Friday, Roy Delgado will be there to demo the Jubilee from 5-9.
