RE: Klipsch Jubilee

My Khorns currently have Volti's wood horns with the BMS 4592mid 16ohm drivers, tweeter is a JBL 2404. Previously, i had the Martinelli Horns using the original drivers. I had Alks extreme slope crossovers and then later built the crossovers John Warren designed which I like and is closer to the AK networks. I think what I'm hearing from the Jubilee's is the time alignment of the drivers. I started experimenting last week with REW and a Xilica XD4080 DSP bi-amping the speakers, I got the woofer to mid time aligned but need to set the tweeter on top of the speaker about 17" back to time align or tri-amp the speakers.
I did hear an improvement and also used the PEQs to get rid of some of the peaks from the bass cabinet and horn section.
Here's a clip of REW spectogram data with a just my passive. You can see the time alignment issues as well as the bass hump. Some of that bass hump is the tube amp (too much cathode cap).
