Connecting iNuke 3000 to Epik Subwoofer
I’m replacing a failed, plate amplifier in an Epik subwoofer with an external iNuke NU3000DSP. I’m a metallurgist, not an AV expert or electrical engineer, so please be patient with me. I’d like to take full advantage of the iNuke’s capabilities, so I’d like to connect and set-up everything properly.
The Epik subwoofer has a pair of drivers that are presently wired in parallel. I measured 3.5 ohms across the parallel connection.
I’ll have one, coaxial cable from my Sony A/V receiver to the amplifier. I assume this is a digital signal. I plan to connect it to the channel “A” input of the iNuke, if this is correct.
From previous postings on this and other forums, it sounds like I should run the iNuke in “bridged mode”. I assume that “bridged mode” means that both channels of the iNuke will be used to process the same subwoofer signal from the A/V receiver, and that both channels will be merged and power the subwoofer. Did I get that right?
I bought a Neutrik NL4MP Speakon 4 Pole Panel Mount for the Epik subwoofer. I bought one, NL4FX Speakon Cable Connector to attach to the iNuke end of the cable, and an NL2FX to attach to the subwoofer end of the cable. Will these work, or must I use an NL2MP 2-pole Panel Mount on the subwoofer?
If these connectors will work, am I correct that I should connect the iNuke end of the cable to the 1+/2+ terminals of the NL4FX. At the subwoofer end of the cable, the 1+ conductor from the iNuke end should be connected to the 1+ terminal of the NL2FX, and the 2+ conductors from the iNuke end should be connected to the 1- terminal of the NL2FX. If this is correct, then should I connect the subwoofer's plus terminal to the 1+ terminal of the NL4MP, and the subwoofer's minus terminal to the 1- terminal of the NL4MP?
Thank you in advance for any comments and suggestions you have?
