Should I upgrade from an iNuke 3000DSP to iNuke 6000DSP?

Would I notice a big bump in output if I went from an iNuke 3000DSP to an iNuke 6000DSP with my Marty Cube 18" Stereo Integrity HT18 drivers? They are wired for 4ohms and rated at 600 watts RMS.

If you have two cabs that are 4 ohms each then you're not getting a ton of power out of the 3000. The 6000 would get a noticeable bump in spl. I've been running a single HT18 off a bridged 3k for years and it handles that power just fine for movies. Loud music for an hour might cook it. If you keep the 6k off the red light with long term music you should be fine.

Are you seeing the red light on the 3k a lot? If not then more power won't do squat. You wouldn't even be using all the power you currently have.

Oh no, it never hits the red light, and I have them calibrated to where I'd never want more bass output than I'm currently using, seeing as I also have 3 MFW-15 Turbos, and an Outlaw LFM-1EX, on top of the dual 18" Marty Cube ported subs. Is your HT18 2ohms or 4 ohms?

I guess I'm just wondering if the 6000DSP would provide more depth to the bass, like deeper output, due to the increase in power.

Mine is 4 ohm.

If you're not seeing red then the 6000 will gain nothing. Spend the money elsewhere.
noah katz and wlhungdude like this.

The highest I've seen it go is the second orange light, but just slightly, and that's when it's really being pushed hard, louder volume than I'd ever watch a full movie at in scenes with a ton of deep bass. Glad I don't need to add a more powerful amp. 🙂
