Re sub

I don't think you will regret it. I am watching Dredd ATM with it cranked up and it is an awesome sub. Can only imagine what the big brother 12012 can do!

DXD 808

If your 808 is any thing like my new toy you are going to LOVE it

If I could work out how to change my sig on the new site everyone could se that I now have an MKSound MX350 Mk 2 and it is awesomw

So the story is the 808 is as good if not better so....................watch this space.

I'm sure your MK will be

I'm sure your MK will be superior on account of larger drivers. How big is your room?

Possibly for overall output, but we found other aspects like quality and speed of the 808 to be superior.

Room size is 4.0m x 5.5 (max)

currently have the sub in the corner about 50mm from the walls, sounds pretty good so far (still playing!!)

Thinking of turning it around so that it plays against the wall, there is a school of thought that suggests it re-inforces the sub some more.

Very pleased so far though

If the corner consists of solid walls, yes. If one wall is solid and the other battened/stud, you're better off firing the driver into the solid wall. If the corner isn't solid at all, you're best off just firing it out into the room.

Thanks David

Solid walls I'm pleased to say, so I will give it a go at some point, although very pleased with results so far
