Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

According to Ken the best starting point, in a manual set-up, is to set your subwoofers between 78db and 81db and your other speakers to 75db. You can adjust the subs up or down after that. If you do...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I never had any real success with Audyssey, although there a few tricks you can use. I always better off setting up the subs manually. I use Dirac now and it works very well.

Are your subs set at...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Well, if that is the case both subs are working. Tell me more about your installation, room size, etc. Are you using Dirac or Audyssey?

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

That is true, but he can tell you how to test the amplifiers. As an aside, it is pretty simple to see if both subs are working. Just check the SPL with a Radio Shack meter of one sub, then turn on...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Why don't you email Ken Kresisel at [email protected]

By the way, I have a pair of DXD-12012's and they are...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Which version of Audyssey are you using? Do you have the subs in corners? If you are using DXD12012's in the quarto configuration you are basically trying to balance two subs since each stack of four...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

It is easy to get to Ken directly with a question. He is amazingly conscientious and helpful. His knowledge of subwoofers is without peer. For months I read everything I could about subs and tried it...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I think you need to wait on Ken. Have you tried the 808's, stacked according to Kreisel instructions, without the 700's? When stacked correctly the top one is inverted so the side woofers will face...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

KapteinUfattelig, I would first recommend that you contact Ken Kreisel directly. Ken is ultimately knowledgeable about the your DXD808's and I know from experience he is very responsive. I own a pair...

Frequency response does not tell you everything about how a sub sounds. Transient response, or how "fast" the sub is is a major factor. The DXD12012 is incredibly fast. I think that is why the are so...

I am not an REW expert. Maybe adding some smoothing would paint a clearer picture for you. What I see in the last graph is a dip from about 22Hz to 15Hz, not a roll off, because it begins to rise...

I do not know anything about your room. Can you tell me about it? Are you using bass traps? If not I think that could help. If you can smooth out those peaks I think you could be in business. If the...
