Hi chaps and chapesses

I ordered a Gemini ii from BK 24th Jan. It was a late Friday evening decision... but an informed one.

Nothing yet. I have spoken to them a few times (not easy to get in touch with) and there was no email order confirmation which made me a little twitchy. When I've spoken the the woman in the office she explained that they make the subs to order and it would take a week.

I left it two weeks and phones again on Friday. I was told it would be shipped that day and to expect a call today - Monday. Nothing.

Should I be worried? Anyone else had this happen? I really want to support a small UK business but I'm a bit nervous that I'll be waiting for weeks...

Reassurance please? :nerves:

Hi Tim,

I deal with BK a fair bit, I imagine you spoke to 'Olive'? She's a lovely lady and I'm sure she just had a busy day. Nice company, just try again tomorrow. :^

Cheers,

Jack

They are slow. That said... Mine was a special and if arrived in about 2 weeks. Quality is superb. Moreover, I have since had outstanding support from the technical bods there (they designed a totally different roll off and filter characteristic to suit my speakers) outstanding

Hi I've ordered from them a couple of times. No problems at all but maybe a little slow. I've met quite a few people who've used them and no problems. What I will say is for the money they are superb and I've had no problems getting mine set up.

Cheers

Hi Tim

I bought a sub from BK a couple of years ago and received good service.

They are a reliable company

Here's some reassurance.

You ordered it late on 24th January.

You were informed it would take a week (at least to make).

It's only a week and a bit now - not two weeks as you say in your OP.

Give them a chance - it's probably about to arrive!

:)

I have to say after only 30 minutes of play - I'm amazed. Still tweaking the levels etc (but that's just an ongoing hobby) but from the box it sounds epic. I'll properly review when I get chance and add some pics but.... How does such bass come from such a small box? My room is 4m x 11m and it's dong very well. I've added the foam bungs to my CM8's and they're working together very well.

Happy chap

Great news. I have always been impressed with BK and found them great to deal with. I believe a small number so subs are available pre built but many are built to order which may explain the delay.

Glad you got it working well in your system.
