Thanks for the compliments. In regards to the rotating 90 degrees i think the real answer is only known to ken himself. It makes no difference to the frequency response or time delay.

I have a simulated response for the room. Originally i had the sub in the front right corner under the right speaker, i found it intergrates better in the front left. The simulated response is also much better.
I think you may be partly right there Darkmatter, Ken subs are unique in certain ways and deliver a very clean response which gives it such great impact in movies but are also lightning quick and articulate for music, he will not give away all his secrets

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

A word of advice to other owners. Yesterday after i had turned off my AVR i decided i would turn off the sub using the wall power switch, i turned it back on later in the evening (normally its on 24/7 in the always on) and it didn't come back alive, turns out turning it off/on at the wall blew the fuse. Quick trip down to maplins sorted it out.

Well, I have had a fair few subwoofers in my time and from different manufacturers but mostly M&K, and from memory this sub is more impressive than my previous MX350MKII that I had, you have to take into account this in my room and this DXD808 performs brilliantly, also I would say from the last sub I had which was also NO slouch a Martin Logan Depth i, I prefer the bass from the KK which has more impact and power!

This might not necessarily be a problem with the subs short blow fuse blowing too quickly, but more likely a problem within your own main supply as this does not happen when I have switched on & off, saying that only done it twice! but it might mean you have some problem within that mains ring that the sub is off?

I just thought I would post this as I do like this review as it combines both the DXD808 & 12012

The review here by Jman was very good and thorough, sorry I'm on my iPhone ATM so difficult to link to, but I think it is the best one yet comparing the 808 as a single and then a DUO, check it out in the hardware review section!

As soon as I can get another one then I will make sure I do a thorough review also

I found the review wasn't quite as much a comparison between single and duo. It was more a review of the duo... Maybe i need to re read it!
