    The X wave pumps quality is very bad out of three sets only one lasted more than a few weeks, But my opinion from just looking at the RR pumps is that they are much better quality, they also are smaller for the output they give but again I have not used or seen them working its just that they look better made

    The RR pumps are great, seen them in action in Bangkok at WorldWide Reefs. The owner uses the waveboxes hidden inside the rockwork. Wow this tank makes big waves. Check out Last Verstion tank on Reef Central and you can ask him about those RR pumps.
