My buttkicker amp stopped working and been driving my (2) 12 subs good , but after reading about the high distortion rate of that amp wondering if another amp like a inuke or a europower , one of those kind of amps would be better, what amp would be a good replacement for it , my subs are dual vc 2ohms per coil and 1000w rms each sub, so they are power hungry

Why not a inuke6000dsp?
The DSP has a limiter feature to keep it within power range desired. They start droping in power a bit below 20hz but other than that work well for subs.
The fans are loud when in the same though so put in another room or need a fan mod.

thanks guys, these are great finds for the $$$, I don't have any experience with this kind of amp, is there anything ( other than the loud fans ) like signal level or humm or any negative issues with using these types of amps

Are your subs ported? If so you will need e.q. so the don't damage themselves below the tune. The eropower amps don't have e.q. built it, but the DSP inukes do.

No telling if you will get hum. Best to use a good cable to start with and fix hum if you have it later. Besides needing adapter cables ( and fan changes) the inukes are easy to use with about all avrs. You can download the inukes software and play with it before hand.

Going with an amp that does not have built in DSP may require an external DSP box. Not a big deal, just another piece of equipment and more cables.

yes they are ported, and I kinda like that the inukes have those features, how long do these kind of amps usually last, Ive had my buttkicker since 06

They can last a very long time because they are built to take on the road and withstand the banging that would happen when being moved all the time. I use the Behringer ep-4000 to drive my sub and I let my Onkyo with Audyssey room correction handle my eq duties and I get good results. I will agree that if you want more eq ability the Inuke series is a good choice. Just remember that you will need cables that go from rca to 1/4 trs or speakon in order to connect your Yamaha to the Inuke. The amps that I linked to have rca inputs so you will not need new cables. Also whatever the power that your subs can handle I would get an amp with at least that amount.

That's a really good price on the EPX, I have an EP 4000 and EP 2500(same amp for all intensive purposes) and I also use Audyssey XT32 to EQ the subs and have very good results, mine are sealed though!

I bought an INUKE 3000, but with no DSP, am happy with it for the most part, good power for the money, but since have upgraded my subs( 4 x SI-HT18's) and need some more power....Im happy with the INUKE and was thinking about getting a INUKE 6000 DSP, but read somewhere that they have a turn on/ off thump when triggered , is this still the case with these???? ...and something about low freq roll off, can any one tell me from 1st hand experience ( was this an older model with turn on /off thump) - and not newer models don't do it ?
