Re: Behringer iNUKE Class-D Amps: NU1000/NU1000DSP, NU3000/NU3000DSP, NU6000/NU6000DSP, NU4-6000

I have a quad 2ohm IB3 IB sub and I'm building a quad Infinity 1262 sealed nearfield sub. I'm debating three options.

1. I could get one NU4-6000 and run a pair of subs off each channel. In this case each pair of IB3 drivers would be wired in series. This would use two channels of the amp and each channel would see a 4 Ohm load. The problem is wiring them in series of course loses sensitivity. The 1262's are DVC subs that can be wired as either 2 or 8ohm subs. I would wire each driver as 8ohms so each pair would be run parallel so with the 1262's the amp would also see two 4ohm loads. Since the DVC subs would be run parallel they would not lose sensitivity. Using the NU4-6000 also means the entire amp runs off one circuit (and I only have 15 amp circuits).

2. I could get two NU3000 amps for the same power and sensitivity limitations but spread the love across two breakers.

3. I could get two NU1000 amps and have one 2 Ohm IB3 driver run off each of the four channels. I would also get an NU3000 for the 1262 drivers and they would be wired the same way as they would be with the NU4-6000. This presents a much more difficult load for each of the NU1000 amps but the IB sub doesn't lose sensitivity and I could put the two NU1000 amps on one circuit and the NU300 amp on another.

So option 1) is simpler but the IB loses sensitivity and the breaker would likely pop. Option 2) costs about $110 more, is also simple and it has the same sensitivity trade off but spreads the love across two breakers. Option 3) costs about $250 more and presents a tougher load to the NU1000 amps but spreads the load across two circuits and allows the IB sub to have greater sensitivity without more power (although there would also be little more power to each of the IB3 subs).

What do you guys recommend doing?

Jerk Hi!

Im planning to buy inuke nu3000(dsp) or nu6000 to power my single 12" 1500w rms subwoofer http://www.ground-zero-audio.com/en/...30xspl-d2.html . So the question is does nu3000 give enough power? Does it give 1500w rms? If not i have to think of buying nu6000. My budget is pretty tight so the nu3000 would be better. Thank you for answers.

mpednault I've got an NU1000DSP to power my TubaHT which has the Dayton DVC385-88 15" driver in it. My receiver is a Denon X1100W. I haven't run Audyssey yet. I want to know the best way to go about configuring the settings for the sub with this amp. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where do I start? Should I run Audyssey first and then work on the sub amp settings after?

Currently with just the AVR setting the LFE XO to 80Hz the sub sounds weak. I think I might have the Speakon connector wired wrong. I want to use it bridged but when I select bridged on the amp it sounds weaker than when I leave it in stereo mode just using channel A.

I've got a coax connected to the preout of the AVR, then it goes thru a wall plate and a coax to 1/4" phono cable which is then connected to input A on the amp. I have the sub wired parallel inside the cabinet.

Over-thinking it . The time scale of analog electronics compared with audio frequencies is negligible. Don't sweat it. If you're worried your OCD may keep you awake at night, do a Y-split right at the amp inputs and keep the speaker wire lengths the same.
Thanks a ton!

Hey there fellow bassheads, just finished reading all posts, phew.... Couldn't find the answer in here either so I thought since it's related to all inukes- here it goes.
I'm getting inuke 6000 to power my 2 SI HT 18 D2 in single sealed box. My plan is to wire each of them to 4ohms and connect single woofer to each channel. BUT. How I know that the signal is going reach each of the driver at the exact same moment so the drivers won't fight each other in a single box? I understand that the difference might be somewhere in 0.00000000001 region but still. Or am I overthinking too much about it? Thanks for any input and accept my apologies if the question was noobish :-)

I run a nu1000dsp in bridge mode. Using a 4p speakon connector(+1 and +2 connected).

What i find weird is that both volume knobs work, is this right or have I done something wrong?

Are both knobs supposed to be on the same level?
Both channels of the amp are working together in bridged mode...

Use the knob for Channel A to set your gain and rotate the knob for Channel B all the way counter-clockwise to the "OFF" position.

I leave my MiniDSP on all the time. I manually turn my iNuke on/off with the power button. No pops, thumps or anything. My previous EP4K used to thump a little w/ turn-on, but not bad.

Re: Furman stuff (MP-20Q + PowerLink). Another $500 to turn the system power on/off? Does the expense sink-hole of this hobby ever end??

What model amp do you have? When I use a smart strip to kill power it pops. I've read it may just be the DSP models.
I have the iNuke 1000 plain, no DSP (I have a miniDSP).

I just realized that you have an NU6000, so you need a lot more amperes, so, my guess is that this belkin will not work for you, although is rated to 15 amp

When I was investigating on how to turn on the iNuke with a remote I saw this:

http://www.amazon.com/Furman-MP-20Q-...=furman+outlet

This may work for you.

Regarding your pops, you may need to delay the on/off sequence for your equipment. something that I learnt is that you need to turn on first the source (AVR for example) and later, following the signal chain, the amp at the end. And the sequence for turn off is backwards, first turn off the amp and at the end the AVR.

I have this sequence on my equipment and I don't have any pop sound.

Hope this helps.
