2pm usually but nowadays 11/12. Pretty much depends on mood. Some ppl say the bass pot is gimmick but I think its God sent.

Using 2pm as well. The bass pot is magical to tune in noisy or quiet environment.

Wow, 2pm seems to be the consensus. I've been listening at 9pm. Maybe I should try 2pm out. I've never had it more than 12pm.

I am using around 9 o'clock as well. 2PM for me just drowns the upper mids and highs. Even at 9, the bass is still solid both in depth and extension(width) but strikes a nice balance with mids and highs. If I want a bass boost of some sort I switch to JH16 which still maintains the clarity in the upper mids and highs.

I have heard many negative or so so comments on these, but let me tell you something : they sound absolutely great. Out of my 901 it is pure enjoyment. They manage to be full sounding and spacious with textured bass and smooth overall sound, nice speed. The highs are not the sparkliest I have heard but they are perfectly coherent with the rest. Overall, no issue yet (apart from the 120 reshells).

Only 120?

I think the bass dials depend on the source. With my RWAK120 it needs more bass so I have it at 3 o'clock. With an iPhone I set it at 2 and with the Chord Hugo it sounds about right at 1 o'clock.

 

I do wish it didn't require a screwdriver to change the dials though, especially as I have no nails (I'm a nail biter). And why two dials? Surely it could have been implemented with one.

And it make possible to balance with 2 dial?

Ah, that makes sense.
