oh so what improvements do you get with the maxspect then?
That I do not know, I was just speaking to my personal experience with the icecap, sorry for any confusion.

The only difference I care about is the noise. The better controller isn’t a selling point for me. The new version maxpect is quieter than any icecap version.

Is icecap basically the 100 series but with the icecap name?

My maxspect aren’t loud but then again they’re not all the way up, either.

I have the “old, loud” version.

I got an Ice Cap 3k for Christmas and it is dead quiet, no noise whatsoever. I am extremely pleased with it.

I can't find my source for this anymore, but I had it confirmed at one time that Maxspect manufactures the Icecap units, so there should be little difference between the two.
I've been trying to figure out what the real differences are between the Maxspect 300 series and the 200 series. It appears to be just the snap-on deflectors, but can somebody confirm what the differences are? Is the 300-series controller actually different? And can you run the 300-series with the 200-series Advanced Controller? (I don't see why you couldn't unless the electrical connectors have changed).
 

Any special reefing plans for this week?
