(Unhealthly that is... for all the OTHER equipment on the transformer pole, not the nu's per-se)
Once you get above 20amps, PFC should be REQUIRED to meet electrical standards.So I pose the question to all the nu3k and 6k users out there: How often have your 'other' devices, TV's and such, needed repairing after install? Anyone?
I'm glad to see Behringer putting the heat on Crown and Gruppen, get those prices down
I used an Inuke DSP 3000 on a pair of JTR captivators for close to a year running in 2 ohm stereo. I had zero issues. The amp was fantastic. I could make it power cycle under max load with solid clip lights, such as during the 2012 blind subwoofer meet where it reset three times during the audition because we were at the amps limits -- the reboots are brief - about 3 seconds until it turned back on, but it never made any bad noises out of the subs (7,200 watt peak drivers) and I never noticed any dedregation of quality. I assume this would qualify as the issue you are talking about? I've not had any other damaged components, nor is the Inuke damaged in any way. I feel the Inuke sounds identical to the EP4000, which sounds identical to the Crown XLS-5000 if all amps are kept within their limits and no EQ nor DSP is applied. I'd never be able to tell the difference in amps on the Captivator subs. Now you introduce the Inuke DSP and it's a different story. The Inuke DSP is the best I've personally used or experienced, IMO, and that includes use of the minidsp, and a DCX2496, and if this DSP 12000 comes to light - I'll likely sell my Crown XLS-5000 and pick up the INuke DSP for two ohm stereo use. The DSP excels. The FR capture in my avatar was captured at my listening position using the Inuke DSP. Here is a link with some non dsp FR captures compared to DSP. They are minor changes, but the Inuke DSP is so easy --- what do they say? So easy even a caveman could do it.
There are six pictures in that album, the first is the EP4000 non eq'ed vs. the Inuke DSP with EQ. No smoothing, the second is my avatar pic with no smoothing, the third is my avatar pic, the next three are the Inuke DSP settings I used to get there.
It is effective, and easy to use. Works in realtime with no 'save' button or upload required. You can set wattage limits, among the other many cool DSP functions. So if your 18" SI driver should only get 600 watts. Set it to get a max of 600 watts. How cool is that? When 600 watts approaches the clip light comes on to indicate you've hit that threshold. I'm using my DSP 3000 now with tactile transducers and the wattage limits are low, so I can set my wattage limit appropriately and know that I'm not exceeding my limits. There may be other amps that do this...I'm just unaware of any -- and certaintly not in the INuke's pricerange. Peavy IPR is a good line, but the DSP is very limited in comparison -- lacking a software interface to your computer alone on the IPR is a fatal flaw.
\I'm currently using the Mic2200 with my XLS-5000 and it works okay - but not nearly as flat frequency response with only two PEQ bands. I've heard/seen some weird issues with the minidsp that may or maynot have been resolved so I'll stay clear of that for now, and the DCX2496 sorely needs an update....serial interface? 1990 visuals, etc. Yikes --- If Behringer just released the DSP as a standalone I would buy it in a flash. In fact I'm going to write them right now and ask them to do that very thing.
