Wavebox vs power head by Tunze

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about building a wavebox using a Tunze 6100,6200 type

there are many website and you tube on this DIY

my question here is: if the same controller is use to control the same tunze powerhead,

why would one prefer a wavebox over just one Tunze powerhead

i guess, I am asking what pros and cons between using the power head as is or but it in a box, ain't they both can create waves in the tank? why go through the extra step to build a box around it

Also, if someone has a wavebox, please let me know if the outlet should be placed closer to the top of the tank, in the middle or below, or does it matter for creating wave?

thanks

I have both the wavebox and the Stream. Personally, in my 225 gallon, the wavebox does all of the work. I really don't understand the stream? It can also vary in power and frequency but doesn't seem to create the waves that the box will. Secondly, it's waaaayyyy overpriced (stream) for $300+. I also have a SEIO 1500 that moves 1500 gph and only costs $70!

Not sure of your tank size?

Placement of the wavebox has a "Blue" line on it. That should be level with your water level when there is no motion.

The wavebox works great!
