Sanway FP10000Q or iNuke NU6000?

Does the FP 10000Q have any real advantage over the iNuke6000 except for the 2 extra channels? I am talking about the non DSP model iNuke. I have the iNuke6000 and a 3000DSP and I am think of consolidating my amps to one FP10000Q clone amp. I would like a little more power for the my two LMS Ultras. The gains on my NU6000 are almost maxed, so I would like a little more power.

Go with the 14fpk for 2 ultras... you won't be disappointed.

I have 2 TC Ultra's and an SI HS24 to power. I would much prefer not having to get two 14fpk's........which I probably can't power anyway on my 20amp line. I figured the FP10000Q was the best amp for my situation.

Yeah, that is a dilemma there. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the 10K so hopefully someone will chime in.

I don't have any experience with the inukes but I use my 10k to power 4 Uxl's and am super happy with the results. I run it at 26db gain(max gain is 44db) off my Xmc-1 from the balanced sub out and would have zero problem driving it to the edge if my ears and foundation could handle it.
The 10k is rated for 2100watts x4 and I was under the impression that the inuke 6k was found to put out 2200 x2 ????? Wouldn't you be making more of a lateral move in the overall power department.

I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the NU6000 was tested at 1,800 watts x 2. Not a big difference, but the FP10000 has a little more power, with the ability to also handle 4 subs.

Anyone who used to have an iNuke move up to an FP10000?

Well isnt the fp 10000 more than 600 plus shipping and the inuke is 350.

I'd recommend two bridged FP10k's. To hell with the breaker! You can always turn it down 1db to prevent the breaker from popping.
Start with 1 FP10k unbridged, and if you ever need to double the power, you can with a 2nd both bridged.

The LMS-18 can absorb a lot of power. Above 50hz it can handle all the power a bridged FP14k can dish out, below that you'll run the risk of bottoming out.
When you bridge the FP10k it puts out more power than an LMS-18 can handle, maybe the 24 could handle it... I don't know.

I've used the FP10k and 14k and I have heard the nu6kDSP twice (although not anywhere near maxed out.)
You can't go wrong with any of them.

The FP14k is one of the most powerful 2-channel 2RU amps I've used, regardless of weight.
The FP14k digs the deepest, but unless you are running sealed and like songs like Bass I love You, then I don't think it would be missed.
Even with the FP14k you could always start with 1 and add a 2nd if needed.

If you want to take extra risk, the FP20k is supposed to be as powerful as two 10k's in just 2RU. I'm not sure if anybody has tried it though...

Here is what a FP14k does to two LMS-18's @ 18hz @ 2-ohm 1-ch unbridged.
Pretty much full excursion!

If you activate both channels and connect 4 LMS's @ 2-ohms it will push them.
If you want less power wire for dual 8-ohms or 16-ohms bridged, however you'll lose 3-6db if you do that... but the amp will be happier.

Think I will start with the one FP10K and see what I need from there. The LMS's need a lot more power to get going than the HS24. Bass.....What was the nu6000 tested at vs the FP10K?

You can't compare tested results vs specs of another. I have used all 3 amps but my system is not power hungry. I replaced my 10k with a 14k and then with a 6000. If you need more power than the 6000 then get the 14k. The big difference in power comes from bridging the Sanway amps, otherwise the power is not that much different. You can run all your subs as one off of the bridged 14k and have plenty of power to bottom them all, unless of course you have them in really tiny enclosures.

Because of placement issues.... I cannot run all of my sub on two channels. My main reason is for the convenience of using one amp and if I can get more power that would be even better.

If you can only have one amp and more than two channels then you answered your own question. The 10k will be fine if you wire each one in 4 ohms. The 6000 does not have enough channels since you can not wife the subs as one or two. One channel of the 6000 won't be enough for two of your drivers anyways.

I don't think one channel of an FP10KQ at four ohm will give you more power than one channel of an NU6000. Keep in mind that you have to double power to get 3 dB of volume, so even a difference of a few hundred watts won't make a big difference in sound. Now, with three subs, you could run one of the bridged off of two channels if the amp is stable... It may not be.

Personally, I've ruled out using the clones. The failure rates are too high and I don't want to have to troubleshoot failures myself via email correspondence.

It seems the newer clones have gotten better as far as failure rates. Now for me, I wouldn't mind keeping my NU6000DSP, but because it is at the back of my stand/rack I cannot easily access the power switch and the power down thump from my 12v trigger is horrendous. I also do not have the skills to do the power switch relay either.

I have a NU6000 non dsp also which is ok but it looses the whole reason to get the Inuke. So the fact that I can have one amp that has at least equal power to two 6000's and now has DSP, seems like a good idea.

The 10k does not have dsp unless there is a new model. BTW, any new model from Sanway is an unknown as reliability is concerned. The 14k is the amp we know really well, and somewhat the 10k and both of those did not have dsp.

Yes it is an unknown, but if it the amp side is as good as the fp10k and the dsp is at least as good as the Inuke's, then it will be the only amp with the power of two inuke6000's and dsp.

Yes, but that amp has never been tested or used on AVS so it is a big unknown so that is a big if. Besides the 10K has never been tested like the Inuke. You can be the guinea pig! I trusted Notnyt with the 14k and new all the risk involved. Do we even know how the dsp performs from Sanway? Your choice and I owned 3 amps from Sanway with good luck, 2 14ks and one 10KQ.
