Has anyone used passive versions of the JTR Captivator with the iNuke 6000DSP amplifier? Any reason that amplifier wouldn't be a good choice to run a pair?
Hey Mike.. If you look close at some of the options you will notice that the word recommendation comes up under amplification.Do you have a link to the sub? All I can find are the powered ones.
Yeah it trashes the warranty and reduces the air flow. With that being said, many go ahead and go with it with success.I guess the only concern is whether the quiet fans provide the same airflow as the noisy ones.

The only mention on their web site of the passive Captivators is as a footnote under the specifications table. I believe the construction is identical to the powered version except for the deletion of the plate amplifier.Do you have a link to the sub? All I can find are the powered ones.
I hear you. Thing is though, it’s not just the iNuke, it doesn’t have the corner on noise that’s for sure. In general they all are noisy to a degree. I think I have had four different outboards and they all were noisy. I herd some talk about the Crown being fairly quiet though. Maybe that was just a certain model?? Anyway they were originally built for touring if I’m not mistaken and are built like a tank!..very heavy! The iNuke is a newer design that’s very lite.Reassuring to have actual listening experience. Based on one particularly in depth review of the iNuke, the take home message was that it was far from a perfect or even audiophile amplifier but that it's characteristics lend itself very well to subwoofer amplification. But those fans!
Hey cool your building a house! Congrats.. I hope it all goes according to plan and you don’t have to many problems in the process. You should be good if you have a door on your gear room. The way I understand the pic is your screen is going to the right of the opening correct? Or hold it, it could be perceived as going to the left? You did say around the corner. If that's the case, pf, no problemo
that's a super impressive bundle of cabling !I'm still inclined to purchase one of these because its performance is supposed to be good for subwoofer amplification purposes, and it is as cheap per watt as you will find.
Here is my AV rack space/clsoet:
It is located 8-10 feet or so and around a corner from the theater seats and I'm hoping that it is far enough away that the noise will not be intrusive. My second option would be to not install it into the rack and bury it in the back of the closet. Can't think of any reason that I'd need to access it once it is configured. I'm assuming it has a 12V trigger or some other way of knowing when to turn itself on and off with the rest of the system.
