The previous generation XF150 pumps are only compatible with this controller. You cannot use XF130 pumps on this controller.
In most cases when choosing a powerhead, you will look into a bulky and intrusive propeller style powerhead that leaves dead spots in corners and makes you limited in coral placement due to the sheer force of the flow they need to produce. The Gyre pumps use crossflow technology to help evenly distribute the current throughout the tank without creating a single concentrated point of flow. Since the sheet of water that it produces makes a "gyre" flow pattern that is very efficient and gentle giving you more coral placement and aquascaping options. The design of the Gyre body and silent suspension mounting system keeps the entire package very low profile and super quiet.
The new Advanced Gyre Controller now lets you couple up to two Gyre pumps together off a single power supply. The two connected pumps can run in sync, anti-sync, or a couple of other modes giving you more control over the output. It now also lets you set a full 24-hour flow cycle without the need to connect to a third party controller.
If you choose not to set your own custom flow cycle, Maxspect also expertly programmed a couple of 24-hour cycles, like Lunar Tidal Cycle (LTC) or the Oceanic Gyre Cycle (OGC). On top of all of that Maxspect added new flow patterns too, like Random and Gradual Pulsing mode in addition to the traditional Constant, Pulse, and Alternating Gyre modes.
The Gyre Advanced Controller is compatible with Gyre XF130, and XF150 pumps.

*Maximum aquarium volume may require multiple Gyre pumps to create desired flow rate. In most cases, it is best to install multiple smaller powerheads over a single larger to create flow in various directions and patterns.
Huge Flow By Joshua on 10/21/2016Joshua would recommend this product to a friendI dont run more than 30% for 92 gallon rimless display. Powerful and I do not hear anything.
Awesome By Jason on 10/19/2016Jason would recommend this product to a friendThis is the best power head I have ever had.
Great product By Anthony on 10/6/2016Anthony would recommend this product to a friendOverall I like this new generation of the gyre and the new controller. The gyre itself seems to be a bit more rugged than the original. It was fairly straight forward to hook up my old xf150 to the new controller. I found the controller directions book to really lacking. However if one goes to the coralvue site there is a really good video on manipulating the controller
