Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

3 feet (or 1 meter) should be plenty.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Not sure why the numbers would fluctuate, but you won't hear a beep on an open circuit so the fuse is good.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Most meters have a setting for continuity, sometimes called a diode test. It usually has an audio tone when you have a complete circuit. That's what I use on my Fluke.

I have. To know for sure you need to check it with a meter because the wire can appear intact, when in reality it's not.

That's rather odd then. Sounds like something for Ken to assist with.

What's the chance there's just a loose connector?

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

You can absolutely have a bad amp with a good fuse. There's a whole lot that can go wrong when amplifying a signal.

+1

The green dots are a suggested setting and certainly not the end-all-be-all. Adjustments exist to be adjusted, so don't fear deviating from those settings.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

If you have to invert the phase 180 degrees that indicates you have the subs facing each other. Is that the case? If so, that's not the typical a DUO or QUAD setup. In order to configure them the...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

40-50 hours break-in time is about right, based upon the 808 DUO I reviewed. They do come around at a rather leisurely pace.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

A single wasn't quite sufficient to achieve the level of output I was looking for, but stack them and it changed everything. It's pretty common knowledge that having more than one subwoofer placed...

Whatever I'm reviewing at the moment. :D I essentially go from one review to the next, so it's never the same for too long.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

They went back quite a while ago. A pair certainly changes the experience; a single didn't really do it for me, but two of them was quite impressive. How large is your room?

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

Congrats on your new toys! After they're tuned and broken in be sure to come back and post your assessment. Others will no doubt benefit from your experience.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I suppose we're each missing the others point. If you would like to discuss it further we certainly can, but if you would rather leave it be I understand. Either way is fine by me.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

If all dials are inaccurate how do you know the green dot is really 0dB? ;)

There's probably some truth that extremely minor variations in those adjustments exist, but I don't see where it would...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

And that's precisely what I did; level match, calibrate, adjust to taste.

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

I never said the subs were at two different gain levels, so I'm not sure where you're getting that information from. They were set identically.

The green dots are strictly for reference and are...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

The easiest way for me to answer this one would be to say; once you hear the duo you'll know why he asked me to test it that way. :T If you notice, a lot of the KK sub reviews are like that - there's...

Re: KK DXD 808/12012 Owners Thread

The reviewer actually did quite a bit of single vs dual comparison, but it was strictly in private. :D

Ken asked that I do the evaluation as a duo, which is what I ultimately published. While I...
