      we didn't get the split, I was concerned about that mid section when moving around. dual chamber, 1 mattress but the base is split then they sync them together. im good after pumping to 100 for dressing ect

        We are getting the flex top because I like to sleep with my head up some and my fianc?e likes to lay flat. I was worried about the split king because of the gap between the two mattresses. My luck I would get on that gap somehow and cause big problems. Do you both lay flat? Any issues with the mattress?

          We have an older split king, about 9 yrs, it has worked great for us. I had to look up the FlexFit top, that is a weird kinda hybrid, would work as long as you and partner always had your feet at the same setting. My wife keeps hers different from me so would not work for us. You're right, sheets can only come from Select Comfort, nobody else will have those, bet they ain't cheap either. But we get our sheets from them anyways, since a split king uses 2 twin bottom sheets and 1 king top sheet, not a popular set elsewhere either.

          I'm a para, so the split is not a problem for me when moving around, but I have sunk my arm down in it a few times as I was moving, so could be something to watch for as a quad, but I don't think it would be a deal breaker.

          I sleep at 35, and 100 for moving around, have not had a failure in the pump or chambers the whole time. I did have some tubing problems early on, but they sent me all new connections and have not had a problem since. Kind of amazing, the pump gets used a lot, hope I don't just jinx myself.

          edit: Oh, and ours was called the 5000 model at the time, probly like the P5 now, just go for how much padding you want. Also, the 5000 was the first model with the quieter pump back then, don't know if they still have diff pumps, but make sure and listen to the pump on the model you are looking at, the other pump was really loud.

            I'm a quad. That's why I was concerned about the split king. The feet setting isn't a problem. I can lay with them flat and she can lay with them up some. The sheets I'm going to show my aunt. She is a seamstress and might be able to make us a few sets. If not we will get them from sleep number. The are around $200. Ouch!

                The sheets are good? I was reading reviews and a lot of people said they were tearing within a year. The mattress cover is already on the to get list.

                      We have an older queen with adjustable base. Not sure of the model but its dual chambers. He sleeps on 80 and I sleep on 40 (he's para from MS) I buy the extra deep pocket sheets anywhere.

                        Thanks for the reply! The flex top will need special sheets unfortunately. It looks like this.

                          Oh I see. Well that's neat. I like that other than needing special sheets.
