Behringer where to buy Online??

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hi All you Bassheads,

I am currently building 2 - Mach 5 IXL 18" Builds.. I am currently thinking of going with a Behringer iNuke 3000DSP that is Firm or at least a Amp with a built in DSP Unit..

Now I been looking locally and it appears this amp is more then I thought. I can get for 379.99 USD Plus Tax.. Now I was wondering if there are any Online Retailers that sell the Behringer for a Good price..

Thnx

http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-NU3000DSP-Ultra-Lightweight-High-Density-3000-Watt/dp/B005EHINAS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1360549424&sr=8-2&keywords=inuke+3000

$351 shipped at Big River...

Ebay you can usually find it even cheaper but not sure of warranty support if you go that route.

Was also wondering if 2 of these IXL 18.4" will be a thumper.. I am mostly interested in getting good low bass for Pipe Organ music and movies..

I know the box is tuned to 16hz and should go a bit lower but not sure how much lower..I know from what I been reading these should be really good, I was just wondering what the closest ID comparison would be ?? would these 2 subs be more capable then 2 ULS-15's from HSU or 2 Submerssive captivatosr??

the box is 285l at 16hz tune..should be a very good performer..

Edit: I just bought the 2 IXL 18.4's. now to wait till I get the cabinets built and amp bought..

Would also need to know how many poles will the speakon connectors need to be, I am thinking they would need to be 2 pole?? but I am unsure..

If you are running the iNuke in bridged mode, you should use a 4 pole Speakon.

If you are running two channels, then 2 pole are fine, but a 4 pole can access both channels from the CHANNEL A port.

Guys doing live sound probably use separate runs in case of failure, but a home install might be simpler with the single connector. :shrug:

Yes I am going to use a single channel for each Subwoofer.. I am going to have 2 IXL18 Sub boxes..OK I guess the 2 pole should be good, I just need to get the Speakon Female connectors and cables..


I was wondering if I should bother with filling in the joints and sanding it down plus rounding the edges with a router before putting on the Duratex??

I have no WAF but would like to make the boxes look half professional..

Also see this thread for a discussion of sealing of the Speakons on the sub, Speakon part numbers, gaskets etc.

OK I was wondering since I will be buying a Behringer iNuke 3000 DSP how would I setup the DSP, Do I hook the amp to a monitor or does it have an Onscreen display of sorts??

You can set up the DSP either by using the buttons and display on the front of the amp or by plugging a USB cable into it from your computer and using the Behringer software. The computer option is much faster and easier.

I will have to borrow my friends laptop but I think the PC should be better then the onscreen display.. Does it have built in software or do you need to install a program on the Computer for that to work??
post #17 of 35
You will need to install the software on your laptop from Behringer's website.

Go the dsp-3000's page, and there is a dsp manager app you can download. Its called inuke remote connect. If you run 2 chan then i would run 2 seperate connectors since the amp will want you to run a bi-amp setup to use only 1 connector.

Anyways wiring is as such;

1+ = ch1 pos
1- = ch1 neg
2+ = ch2 pos
2- = ch2 neg

Thats for stereo / biamp only!

Bridged, is 1+ = pos , 2+ = neg. Ensure the amp is setup for bridge instead of stereo/dual/biamp.

AlsoI was wondering do I need to put some kind of like polly fill on the inside of my Sub Box??
post #23 of 35
It will not be necessary to put feet on the box if you don't want to. I don't think it will move too much with how much it will surely weigh.

Typically poly fill is used in a sealed enclosure. In a ported box use either a layer of fiberglass insulation or foam.

Yup. Just connect the sub output to the input on the amp. If you only have one output on your receiver you can use one cable to the amp and set the amp to sum the outputs from that one input on the amp.

Well Tonight I mounted the speaker and Speakon Plug and ran the wire.. My Nephew & I then moved it to the Home Theater and I remounted the driver in its place and hooked up the Wire.. It is all ready to go. I just need to wait till I get the Amp and both cables.. Which I have all 3 on order awaiting them in the mail..

This is like Christmas when I was a kid.. wink.gif

I was wondering are these DIY Subs supposed to be Airtight?? I wonder as I may need to put some caulk in a few spots where the wood was a little off.. I know I if these need to be airtight should caulk the inside but it is too late.. I will do the best I can on the outside..
post #28 of 35
yes fill all the gaps with something. caulk, or bondo
post #29 of 35
For future builds consider using pl premium if the cuts aren't perfect. It expands when curing to fill gaps as large as 3/8".

well I just used some Caulk and looks like I got it all sealed up. it is now or should be airtight as I can get it.. there was only 2 strips that needed filling the rest was good and is sealed with the wood glue..

I am wondering what effect having NO foam in the Cabinet would do?? Would it sound funny?? Also do I need to get a driver gasket material, I saw some at Parts Express..
