Hi!

Im planning to buy inuke nu3000(dsp) or nu6000 to power my single 12" 1500w rms subwoofer. So the question is does nu3000 give enough power? Does it give 1500w rms or what is the irl (In real life) power? If nu3000 doesnt give 1500w rms or more i have to think of buying nu6000. I dont want to overrun the amplifier. My budget is pretty tight so the nu3000 would be better. Thank you for answers. :)

Looks like most people that have measured them agree with these numbers:

NU3000:
RMS
Stereo
-------
8 Ohm per channel, stereo 315 W
4 Ohm per channel, stereo 620 W
2 Ohm per channel, stereo 1040 W

Bridged mono
---------------
8 Ohm 1250 W
4 Ohm 2075 W

I'm sure some owners here will chime in with their experience with them soon.

If the NU3000 isn't enough, the NU6000 won't help you because you can't bridge it for more power than the NU3000 provides bridged. The NU6000 is really just two bridged NU3000s in a single chassis. The only way that you could really make use of the NU600s additional power with a single sub is if your sub has dual voice coils. Also, without at least the nominal impedance of the speaker, it's hard to say whether the NU3000 is enough. If it's an 8 ohm speaker, then you risk clipping with the NU3000 bridged, if, you're actually going to be using full power.

What is the model of the speaker/driver in that you're trying to power?

d_igital Thank you for answer!

The sub is Ground Zero GZRW 30XSPL-D2 or Autostudio REF-12D2 SPL mk2 . I´m not sure which one i take. They have same specs.
