I'd still whole-heartedly endorse the iNuke. I was discussing a difference in the character of the bass rendered on my system. The iNuke and the XLS have a very similar damping factor, the XTi is considerable higher than either. That may be the difference I was hearing. The iNuke 6000DSP has tremendous power on-tap never falters unless it totally runs out of juice. The iNuke's bass was more powerful sounding, I likened the iNuke's character as being aged rum-like vs. the dry whiskey character of the Crown. That's the best way I can put it. The iNuke seemed to have the edge on power, the Crown XTi has the edge on articulation. These are minor differences, I'm sure some folks would say they don't exist, they certainly did not show up in my basic calibration measurements.

(% based on blind scoring of nine voters in the 2012 KC meet linked in my sig) That's not done on a junk amp.
Moreover. I now own a Crown XLS-5000 amp and the difference between the Crown and the Inuke is inaudible to me at similar volumes (within the capability of the Inuke) with identical EQ.... The XLS-5000 is an 80lb 3U 5000 watt amp, compared to the 2 U (mostly air, 7lb) Inuke DSP-3000. The crown will push significantly harder, but the inuke is no slouch.

The noise comes from the Helmholtz resonator effect, with the window acting as the bottle top and the car as the bottle.
Ah that pulsing! Yes I've experienced that before.

Any others?


Yup, I have seen that. The real infrasonic lovers drive around with their head hanging out of the window along with their tongue hanging out!wink.gif

Really?! I thought there was a tremendous amount of bass. eek.gif

I can roll down the back windows and open up the sunroof in my Saab and it feels/sounds like your head is going to pop. I've never heard it this bad in any other car.
