Unhappy Got my new sub amp / guess I got the wrong one

Well I was all happy cause I got a INUKE 3000, but when it arrived I see that it don't have the DSP, guess I should have paid more attention ( I thought they all had DSP ) any way , should I try to return this and get one with DSP , or use this one ?

What kind of sub, Sealed or Ported?
What driver/Size of cabinet?

Depends - do you have a use for the DSP features or not?

re: Got my new sub amp / guess I got the wrong one

it will have plenty of power to drive my subs, as far as the DSP goes ??? I only have the audyssey that my Onkyo 818 has , don't think it has the bass eq , but it seems that the DSP is what everyone is getting , so it must be good or better , cuz it has the eq built in to it

Your Onkyo has Audyssey XT32 so it does a good job on the sub. I would run Audyssey and try the amp and see if you like it. I think you will find it will do the job just fine.IMO.

Onkyo TX-NR809 HT receiver
HPS-4000,SR-70, John Allen, Klipsch Heresy, Speakers for L.C.R.
QSC GX-5 power amp for L+R mains
Chase Home Theater PRO-10's for surrounds
Behringer EP 4000 pro amp for the Danley DTS-10 tapped horn sub
Oppo BDP-93 universal BD player
Toshiba HD XA2 HD dvd player
Sony VW-VPLPRO1 1080p PJ
Cinema White 1.0 gain 106" fixed frame screen
Dish network with 2 Hoppers and 1 Joey

What type of sub, Sealed or Ported?
What driver are you going to use, in what size cabinet.
All of those things will help us in determine if you need a High Pass Filter or not(The DSP has options for setting filters- plain Jane amp does not).

I just emailed Pierce audio for the T/S parameters.

Pretty much- you're going to need a High Pass Filter, just looking up the wattage figures before hand.

Paul Pierce returned my email asking what YEAR the sub was built, not the EXACT year, but here is his question:
"pre 2009 used a 3" 4 layer coil and after 2009 they had a 3" 8 layer coil"

this will affect the TS parameters, so he needs to know if it's Pre or Post 2009....otherwise the info will be inaccurate.
