You wouldn't need a limiter at all. At 4 ohms the 3k puts out ~600 watts/channel, so you'll only be feeding each PA460 ~300 watts, well under their RMS rating.For the past year or so I've been running my VBSS's 1 sub per channel on the 3000dsp. I'm wanting to use one of the channels to power a BOSS platform I built, so I'm going to put the 2 subs on 1 channel now. For anyone doing this, do you adjust the limiter or settings at all? I'll wire them in parallel to get a 4 ohm load.
Ok so Just to get some final questions out of the way and a conformation before I go ahead and buy/make everything I need
I believe this to be correct. You 100% DO NOT need a 4 conductor wire.Ok so Just to get some final questions out of the way and a conformation before I go ahead and buy/make everything I need
1) I need a 4 pole speakon connector that connects to the AMP SIDE ONLY - I can use only a 2 conductor wire ( why do some forums say people need to use a 4 conductor ? )
2) as per the back of the nu1000 ( it says bridge mode is 1+ positive, and 2+ negative ) I connect the red wire, to the 1+ connecting lug on the 4 pole connector. I connect the black wire to the 2+ connecting lug on the connector.
3 I can then wire up the cable as shown in the picture and terminate both sides with a 2 pole speakon connector. I match the red/black on the two pole connector to match where the red/black is connected on the female speakon on each subwoofer ( so if red is +1 and black is -1 in the subwoofer, I would connect the red/black the same way on each end of the 2 pole connectors that go into the subs ).
does this cover everything? my confusion is why I needed a 4 pole connector if I only use two wires on the amp side. I 100% dont need a 4 conductor wire? why are they used in some builds if most subs only have 2 connections?
The knob on the front of the iNuke isn't gain, it's an input attenuator. What is the gain set to in the software, under Filter/Crossover? Sounds like you need to boost that (and lower the subwoofer level on the Onkyo).Is this an issue ? Is there a way to compensate this via the 1000dsp? So the gain is almost overpowering and I need to lower via the onkyo? It does not seem right to have avr maxed, 1000dsp maxed and me feeling there should be more punch. There should be more gusto from these absolutely massive boxes and woofers, especially 2 of them.
