Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I will see if i can find the quote from ken about the "reference level" setting on the subs. It might of been in another review, but the point was that no two subs volume dials are identical, 0db on...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

This doesn't make perfect sense to me. According to Kens answers i am sure he said in order for the subs to be perfectly matched ina DUO or QUATTRO stack, it is better to use the green dot position...

Fortunately my wife is quite accepting of AV Stuff, as long as i am considerate to how the room looks its fine. She enjoys bassy dance music so selling a sub to her is no where near as hard as...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Very interesting, thanks for your views! Nice to finally speak to someone who has used a duo and single! I wonder why ken asked for no single vs duo and just wanted it to be reviewed as the duo.......

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Its a shame, i felt it was a huge missed opportunity for the reviewer to do a a b comparison of single vs duo as he had them both there setup.... Oh well, its a shame as the majority of reviewers...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

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!

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

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...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

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...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I 100% agree that some movies are louder than others, and the kit you have makes a big difference to how loud you can go before it sounds awful. I used to find -20 for films loud with my old kit but...
