The controllers themselves can't tell if its a pump or a wave box that is plugged into them (the wavebox really is just a tunze controllable pump with a box around it). That said though, if your trying to create a wave by using the wave box, adding a pump on the controller might create current that would counter act your wave (still great/random flow for the tank, but you may not see a physical wave).

Great But Loud By IndoReef on 11/20/2016IndoReef would recommend this product to a friendSimply does a great job of making a wave!
But the sound of the pump coming on and off is very annoying. two Tunze DC power heads in my tank make the same wave almost. 120gallon reef
Great product By Bryan on 3/3/2015Bryan would recommend this product to a friendI have this in my 200 gallon deep dimension reef. Still fiddling with the tuning of it, and am currently running the 24v jumper for max power. Produces a nice standing wave with minimal noise. This thing is quiet! I also have two VorTech pumps, and plan on positioning them to keep detritus from settling on the tank bottom.
One thing thats kind of frustrating--the junction box for the power and the Tunze cable keeps coming apart, exposing wires. I'm sure a little glue will do the trick, but for the cost, I would have hoped that I wouldn't have to do this.
I'd still recommend though. Nice product.
Great Product By Dave S on 10/28/2014Dave S would recommend this product to a friendHave this in my 75g reef. Works great . saw immediate improvement in all my Critters. Has an auto set function that calibrates for best function in you specific tank. Love it. Highly Recommend!
wow By joshua on 5/3/2014joshua would recommend this product to a friendEasy to set up. I am using this in my 50 gallon and am amazed. It makes a great wave and with the help two small power heads there are no dead spots in my tank. The frogspawn seems to be loving it too.
Great product By BAJAB on 1/21/2014BAJAB would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for my 85G and it's doing a good job for the most part. It was easy to set up and I was able to get it working without difficulties. It produces 1" waves and my inhabitants seem to be happy, particularly my zoas. The waves are not overpowering and the water movement is very natural. If you have a deeper tank, you will still need circulation pumps/powerheads to move water for the bottom half. My tank is 30" deep and the Wavebox cannot reach the bottom since it has to be positioned at the top. Some things could be improved: (1) The controller could be built better. It feels cheap and the connectors popped out of place during shipping and I couldn't plug the Wavebox in. I had to open it up and firmly press things in place. Even then, the connection isn't as secure as I'd like. (2) There's a clicking sound as the pump goes ON/OFF, however, it is very subtle and you won't be able to hear it unless you're "looking" for it. (3) The Wavebox itself can be more aesthetically pleasing. It's a little bulky.
Great, But... By John on 8/15/2013John would recommend this product to a friendGreat little wave maker for our 55 mixed reef tank ! But if You hook one up and the noise is way loud , Don't get upset !! Pull the box apart and put the pump back together,Ours came apart during shipping I guess.Then all will be good ! Dam Hydor pumps make way to much noise trying to make waves! Don't waste Your money on them ! Get a wave box !!
Great product!!! By JIm on 7/9/2013JIm would recommend this product to a friendI own a 150 gallon reef tank. Was going to purchase the variable power heads, but I couldn't justify the cost. I decided to go with the wave box, because of the initial cost and after reading the reviews here on BRS. I love the 1" wave it produces. I haven't done it yet, but I think I am going to change to power setting/resister (supplied in the power pack) to get a slightly bigger wave. Well packaged, good quality. I would recommend this product 100%.
Very impressive By matt on 3/23/2013matt would recommend this product to a friendI have a 6' long 180 gallon tank, and I debated this product because I wasn't sure if it would be effective enough for a tank of this size. I didn't want to spend almost twice as much on the 6215 wavebox, so I thought I'd give this a try. I wasn't looking for large waves, and I mostly just wanted to eliminate dead spots and see my corals sway back and forth. This product does the job. In a tank this size, it produces a 1" wave. It eliminated dead spots in my tank, and I was able to remove a few powerheads as a result. I am left with my 2 MP40's and this wavebox in my tank. You'll definitely want to leave some powerheads in the tank to remove the debris that this wavebox suspends in the water column. The wavebox was very easy to set up and adjust, and it runs quietly.
