about to pull the trigger on a pro amp to drive my 2 subs, but got a few questions about pro amps

1 . will my sub out on my onkyo 818 have enough signal to get full power from these kinds of amps

2 . is there any annoying hum or ground loops when using these kinds of amps

3 . I am aware of the fan issues ( loud fans ) is there any other issues that I should be aware of
I'm looking at a inuke 3000 now, and whats the big deal with these having DSP why is this important?



my current subs are (2) 12 " dual coil 2 ohm 1kw , and plan on adding a set of SI HT18" this year and possibly another amp to drive them as well.

Assuming you mean the TX-NR818, you should be fine. AFAIK Onkyos are known for having fairly high subwoofer output signals.

It has been known to happen.


3 . I am aware of the fan issues ( loud fans ) is there any other issues that I should be aware of
Probably not. :T

You can find all you need to know about the DSP in the manual. You can decide for yourself if the features it offers will be useful for your application. If not you can save some money and get the non-DSP version.

I run an NU3000dsp no problem on my NR818, gain on the amp is set at just over 1/2 the dial. You can poke around in the DSP software without being connected to the amp. Have a look. Correcting "room boom" or implementing something similar to a Linkwitz Transform would be some handy reasons to get the DSP.

Just make sure the amp you get can handel 2ohm loads sustained. Not all pro amps can.

I run a Behringer Europower 4000 with my Danley DTS-10 and couldn't be happier. I have a friend that runs two of them with a pair of BassMaxx B1 18" sub horns and loves it.
