Iím not sure with the DB2D but I have a DB1 and program my music / movie settings how I wish to have them and then toggle between the 2 programmed settings based on whether Iím listening to music or watching a movie.

try to listen very well with a piece of music that you know very well.
There are differences.

I'm running a DB3D with 805s--sound is awesome and setup/calibration was super easy. I'm a REL fan too, but with the DB line so well matched to the 800 line, I would not bother with anything else.

Does someone know what crossover is applied when using DB1D (or DB2D) with 802D3 ?

Get the iPhone app and it will do it automatically. if you don't have an appropriate phone, invite a friend with a phone over. While your friend is enjoying tunes, make sure to adjust the level setting to your liking. This will take a range of recordings and your ear--not difficult, but you'll probably toggle back and forth between 2-3 levels over an hour or so. Enjoy!

I ordered a DB2D to use with my 805D3 Prestige - awaiting delivery of both but have contacted my dealer about possibly moving up to the DB1D instead.

I just asked if someone knows the crossover applied with 802D3, I understood it can be done by the app. Just want to know crossover chosen by B&W

I decided to stay with the DB2D and am happy with the way it integrates so well with my 805D3. Setup was a breeze, and sounds great.

Any DB2D owners finding that using the trigger option causes the sub to turn on to active a few seconds following going into standby? I have tried resetting to default settings and reloading the app but on the app I get the spinning hamster on the settings choices.

Update: apparently the app is not working with iOS v12.1. Works on wife’s v12.0.1 and app looks different that what I saw before upgrading to v12.1

In reading reviews I can find on F113 and F212 the DD-18, G1, and DB1 are all compared. Any thoughts?
One of my friends has used several Velodyne subs, over the years, with his SF Extreama's. They have been outstanding.
