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 simulated response for the room. Originally i had the sub in the front right corner under the right speaker, i found it intergrates better in the front left. The simulated response is also much better.
I think you may be partly right there Darkmatter, Ken subs are unique in certain ways and deliver a very clean response which gives it such great impact in movies but are also lightning quick and articulate for music, he will not give away all his secrets ;)

A word of advice to other owners. Yesterday after i had turned off my AVR i decided i would turn off the sub using the wall power switch, i turned it back on later in the evening (normally its on 24/7 in the always on) and it didn't come back alive, turns out turning it off/on at the wall blew the fuse. Quick trip down to maplins sorted it out.

Recruit, from your experience with subwoofers, what would you sya the depth of the 808 compares to? (someone asked me this and i am interested to see what another owner felt about it)

Well, I have had a fair few subwoofers in my time and from different manufacturers but mostly M&K, and from memory this sub is more impressive than my previous MX350MKII that I had, you have to take into account this in my room and this DXD808 performs brilliantly, also I would say from the last sub I had which was also NO slouch a Martin Logan Depth i, I prefer the bass from the KK which has more impact and power!

This might not necessarily be a problem with the subs short blow fuse blowing too quickly, but more likely a problem within your own main supply as this does not happen when I have switched on & off, saying that only done it twice! but it might mean you have some problem within that mains ring that the sub is off?

Its another good review. I wish i could find more reviews comparing a single and a duo!
The review here by Jman was very good and thorough, sorry I'm on my iPhone ATM so difficult to link to, but I think it is the best one yet comparing the 808 as a single and then a DUO, check it out in the hardware review section!

As soon as I can get another one then I will make sure I do a thorough review also :)

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!

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 seemed to do single or quattro and that's a huge price difference! I cant imagine i am the only one wondering about going form a single to a duo.

Your not I'm sure, to me the way I see it anyway from my point of view, was to purchase a single DXD808 because of the size and it's performance potential, and then purchase another to make the DUO to get the fully balanced 3D Push-Pull-Pulsar Deep Bass which is how Ken designed these subs to work, and then I will be happy :)
