Check out our very detailed and comprehensive Audyssey FAQ and Setup Guide. We spent months creating it and it is rock solid.
Thank you Sonnie.

No problem Andrew, one of my favorites recently has been Steve Wilson - Grace for Drowning DVD-Audio 5.1, it sounds especially good and the bass has so much energy to it, very good one indeed

Sigh taking a while to find the funds for a second 808! I think i am settled on a second 808 rather than the upgrade to a 12012, just taking a while to get there! Decided to veto the upgrade for my Onkyo 818 to a emotiva umc200+XPA5 in favor of upgrading the subs.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I do, but do i have to host it on an external site as it used for a url when i tried to attach it on here? Also what do you think are the benefits of the side driver facing a surface? I know it was designed that way, but why? Does it use the wall as a diafram to bounce the sound off?

You do not need to host the pictures on another site, if you scroll down you will see a button that says "Upload and Manage Files and Images" just click on that and upload your picture, it will then be attached to your post.

I think Ken has already made it pretty clear what it does when placing the sub close to the wall, it couples the subwoofer to the room better.

"The side of the DXD cabinet with the side driver is designed to be optimally placed 2-4" from the wall, preferably in a good solid corner of the room. For most rooms, I usually recommend first locating the DXD in the closest solid corner to your primary listening position. So, if the closest solid corner (no nearby openings like an open door) is in the back of the room, try it there first. "

It just states the site driver is designed to be placed 2-4" from a wall, i find this interesting as the majority of the articles i've ever read on subwoofer placement state that bass frequencies are omni directional, so if i had a forward firing sub and rotated it. It would still sound the same, its why downwarrd firing or forward firing also makes little difference. So with that i fully understand why the sub should be place in a "good solid corner" to improve its coupling with the room, but what difference will it make rotating it 90 degrees? So the driver is firing ino the room instead of into a wall.
