Iím using the previous model (DB1) with my 800D3ís and find it integrates well and just completes the bottom end for my set up

Sounds like a great setup. Do you have one DB1 or a pair? Curious where you positioned it/them in your room?

See my signature--I am doing a scaled down version of the same with XLRs from pre amp. Set up and integration were virtually plug and play, sound is excellent

Thanks - Iím just using one and donít really feel a need for two, maybe because the 800ís go very low as it is. Positioning isnít really where Iíd prefer it because of my room configuration - Iíve got it off to the side of the right speaker and slightly behind. I thought it may cause some imbalance but it doesnít to my ears and others that have listened so Iím very happy with my set up..

I am also thinking about adding a B&W DB1D or DB2D to integrate with my 802D3 speakers. I have been torn between getting a B&W sub, a REL (or pair), or a JL sub. I really like the idea of the B&W sub, but wanted to get your opinion and ask how your experience has been and how you are connecting it into your system.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!

Michael

I canít be of much help on the other brands you are considering although both have strong reputations in the sub woofer space. Ideally you would compare them side by side in your own system, but this isnít always easy to arrange!

As for B&W, I know some of the guys have experienced some issues with the newer models which I havenít with my older model. Just be wary of this and make sure you at least demo in your set up before committing.

Mine is connected via RCA to my C1100 pre amp and Iíve used the in-built configuration to match to my speakers. I did have an issue a couple of years ago with the DB1 but this was fixed and Iíve had no issues since - my sub is around 7yrs old.

Good luck with it!
