Just completing this thread in terms of anyone looking for this info in the future -

Now been confirmed by Meridian via Rick that the 'sub modes' do nothing on 6Ks.

That definitive answer from M is good to know. Thanks for posting.

I guess M viewed that for a two channel music system the 6k's are effectively a sub and head unit, so there's no need to roll off the bass to allow for an external sub.

With multi-channel of course it can be done using the processor's bass management.

Regards,
Carl

Yeah that's a very reasonable supposition, I think re: the reason for not incorporating it. The 6Ks manage bass quite handsomely on their own, I just happen to find myself in 2-ch with a room interaction problem, and wanting the placement options/control of a sub without a processor, which is probably fairly unusual.

I'll be going back to 5Ks and trying a sub until in in a different room, so it won't be an issue for me from now on.

Real shame that ... don't suppose you've got another room to put the system in?

Believe me, if I had that option, the 6Ks wouldn't be going anywhere - they're genuinely superb in a suitable space, as I've heard a couple of times in other people's setups and demos.
