Re: KREISEL DXD12012 Discussion Thread

Lots of good info there. I can hardly believe the frequency response you experienced! Also Interesting that Kreisel was involved with sound design for the Star Wars movies. I'm glad to hear the 12012 lived up to its hype. I had been considering a trade-in for the 808, but shied away after our first impressions of the 12012's at the GTG. Now I'm really anxious to see how the 808's perform (considering the 12012 is pretty far beyond my spending range).

Question - after using the "green dot" settings, did you keep them in the stacked/corner position?

Re: KREISEL DXD12012 Discussion Thread

Hey Peter, I tried several different configurations including stack in the back and in the front left corner but ended up having them split to the left and right of the center up front.

It would be if you were limited on space, but there is hardly any replacement for having a sub up front of your room and one in the back to help level out room anomalies.

Wow! That is one crazy, crazy awesome sub. I need to read the review again, I just skimmed it but the in room measurement down to 2.5Hz! Am I reading that right? That's like earthquake territory.

Hey Dan, it definitely got down there. At 4.5 Hz it was within +/- 3 db of 75 db which was insane!

I agree with Dan... That's INSANE. Single digits? Is that even safe for the structure of a house????

I'd also have to agree, Dale, you are lucky to play with these toys. I'd hardly know what to do with them! ;)

Thanks for the review Dale! That looks like a beast of a sub, I'd love to see outdoor ground plane measurements.

Going forward will the subjective test music and movies be the same for each sub being tested or will that change?

The subjective listening material will change but it will always contain LFE, VLF and ULF material. The in room measurements will be from the same position.

Impressive review. I can't say I'm too fond of the looks of the sub, but the performance definitely seems to be there...but you've gotta pay for it :D

Dale,

I have a dedicated 17x22x8 basement room, which is well treated acoustically. Do you think one DXD12012 would be optimum for such a room or would two be required. I have an M&K MX-100 so I qualify for a nice trade in from Kreisel Sound. I appreciate your advice.

That is a pretty respectable size room and while one might work... two will do better especially for taming response anomalies.
