another question, and sorry to interrupt your thread, do you know if this NU6000 can work with a transformer from 220volts to 120 volts with a 50 Hz frequency, does it have a switch mode power supply? the crown xls worked fine in this way, I suspect the inuke will work as well but if I get the nu6000 that would be a good 500 USD to risk.
I feel the crown xls 1000 is not driving the Dayton to its max, at least at certain frequencies. it was a waist of money to get it. how come the Dayton have a 1000 watt plate amp with this, I doubt it will be able to drive it. Still not impressed with the output of this sub, I am trying to consider that the crown 1000 is underfeeding it as the reason for this feeling.
No worries, Goldorak. No interruption, at all.
Yes. This is basically a silent pc mod. The Nexus fans are key fans in the silent pc world. I've hush up all my pc's and I can say the amp is now as quiet or quieter than any of my pc's.
On the power, per below, it looks like there are different models for the "power regions". Can you get an iNuke from a retailer (i.e., Amazon) in your area?iNuke 6000 Power
As far as underfeeding the subs, have you looked into your gain structure? You are feeding a pro amp with a consumer AVR, so there is an imbalance in the voltage. Here is a good article: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/home-theater-receivers-processors-amps/35677-gain-structure-home-theater-getting-most-pro-audio-equipment-your-system.html
I ended up getting a clean box
to boost the voltage. It definitely helped. My problem is that I'm bascially guessing on where to dial in the clean box and the amp. Per earlier posts, I'm concerned about blowing my speakers, so I stay conservative. Inside that gain structure article, there is a pdf, below, on how to measure the voltage. I need to do that so I'm not guessing.

Now, all of this to say I'm starting to think a plate amp is the better way for me to go. Two reasons. First, per all the above, there is a lot to balance in all of this. I just don't have the time to tweak all of this and miniDSP. I realize that these are more precise tools, but a plate amp like the dayton
has a basic EQ to boost the low end for our sealed subs. And it's "plug and play". All consumer voltage.
The last reason is these are dedicated sub amps. I recently got buttkickers for my seats and was blow away by the size of the amp
. This is a 1k watt amp that drives just the very low end. This beast weighs 25 lbs versus the iNuke weighing only 11 lbs.
So, I'm seriously thinking about getting two of the dayton plate amps and selling my "pro gear".
