I originally purchased the Jubilees mated & stacked with Paragon Jem Subwoofer units (The combo was sold and has also been reviewed as the "Jem-Jubilee", but Jubilees were also sold and reviewed as stand-alone monitors... (Initial Review; TAS: Dec 1993, vol 18, iss 92, Shatzman)
I have played the Jubilees most recently on Target stands, as pictured, and with various remote subwoofers... The Jubilees sound seamless with the subs and superior to the original combo with the Jem bass units… They are tonally neutral, transparent and capable of amazing imaging and sound-staging with optimal placement and room acoustics…. Mfg recommendations re stand height and speaker placement are discussed and diagrammed in the Jubilee owner’s manual (included)...
The speakers are in very good condition with only 2 minor flaws that I am aware of... (1) The grill cloth has become unglued in places from the backs of the grill frames and have been repaired with tape... This condition is not visible when grills are in place, and (2), there is a very small faint blemish on the upper left side of speaker #1104 that is not noticeable and you will have a hard time finding it (does not show in photos).
I prefer and will accommodate local pickup at location within the Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas if within approx 1 1/2 hours driving time from Boca Raton, Florida.
I have the original Jubilee boxes and will pack, double-box and ship to destinations within lower 48 USA... Shipping weight will be approximately 96 lbs....

Questions for the seller
do you still have the Gems ??
No... I no longer have the "Jems".
I felt that they were not as good as combing the Jubilees with powered sub-woofers, so I sold them separately a long time ago.
The jubilees are really amazing speakers by themselves, but only go down to mid-bass...
If you can pick up a "Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior" it's a great combination with the Jubilees.
Only selling them because I sold the 2nd home where they were my main speakers in a dedicated 2-channel stereo system... No room now in present home with 5.1 surround system that has full range speakers up front and sub's in a larger room.
Love the Jubilees, but it's time to let them go...
They are VERY heavy and costly to ship though.... Where are you located??
