- Gyre XF350 Pump Kit with Controller (5280 GPH) - Maxspect
The pump that revolutionized water flow for aquariums has reached the pinnacle of design, performance and control. The 3rd Generation aptly named the Gyre 300 series incorporates all of the amazing features of the original Gyre pumps and improved them to make the best GYRE flow pump yet.
- Unique Flow Virtually Eliminates Dead Spots
- Evenly Distributed Linear Flow
- Discrete Design
- Twin Directional Flow Cages
- Clip on Flow Directors
- Waterproof Silent Suspension Magnet Mount
- Advanced Controller with Mount
The engineers at Maxspect completely redesigned the pump with less parts and a more intuitive assembly for easier maintenance of the rotors. Gyre 300 series pumps include an extra set of bushings to help reduce downtime while cleaning and keep your pump operating at full capacity. The new design has simplified this process of rotor replacement making it easier than ever to keep your pump pushing water at full throttle.
All of the Gyre 300 series pumps are compatible with the Maxspect Connect ICV6 control module so you can wirelessly control your pumps using the free Syna-G app from Maxspect. Any combination of pumps can be connected and controlled which means you can now operate a Gyre XF330 and an XF350 using the same control module all with a single power supply. This helps you to tailor the flow inside your aquarium perfectly to suit the needs of your corals without a ton of wires and bulky power supplies under your tank.
The most noticeable upgrade on the new Gyre 300 pumps is the detachable flow directors which are a welcome addition and allows you to place your pumps even closer to the surface of your aquarium without the worry of pulling a noisy vortex of air and improving surface agitation for maximum gas exchange. You can maneuver each director to point the Gyre flow of water where you need it. Best of all, the maneuverable caps block light from reaching the pump components and will reduce the rate at which algae will accumulate for longer operation in-between maintenance.

great powerhead By iceman on 4/1/2019iceman would recommend this product to a friendI have this on my 375 gallon tank and its very powerful, seems stronger than my mp60w qd I had on the tank. Its mounted on the end of my 8 foot side blowing down the entire length of the aquarium. Its been holding on great to my 1/2" to 3/4" thick glass tank
Purely Amazing Powerhead By Robert A. on 3/30/2019Robert A. would recommend this product to a friendI’ve only had this Powerhead for 48 hours now so this is an initial impression. This pump is on my 265g sps peninsula reef tank. I needed a way to get surface agitation at the long end. This pump is basically silent, the noise that it would produce is basically water moving not the pump. It’s so good!
The whole thing feels extremely well built. The controller is very precise and feels like it is a modern piece of technology, You feel like you’re holding a brand new cell phone that is the newest model. The functions available on the controller are A little bit hard to understand at first but make total sense after understanding it, it’s very well thought out after you get familiar with it. It’s definitely a five star, 10/10 Powerhead that moves water all the way down my 7’ tank.
Works great on my 375 gallon tank By Iceman on 3/29/2019Iceman would recommend this product to a friendThis pump replaced my mp60w qd on the end of my 8 foot long tank. Feels and looks more powerful. Like the syna-g app control as well. Waiting on apex integration then would be perfect
My first Gyre and my Last! By Ron on 3/28/2019Ron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPoor setup instructions in manual and Coralvue’s video is inaccurate( particularly the use of the switch button). I had figure out some steps on my own. The magnet holder on the dry side is weak on my 1/2 glass tank and it has adhesive on it which once doesn’t allow you move it once it’s placed on the glass(no mention of this in the manual or their video!) The wall mount holder for the control panel doesn’t come with screws! Thanks Coralvue for making me go out to home depot at 9 pm & for cheaping out on providing 25 cents screws! Never again! I wish I could return this for and get an MP40.
Not Ready for Prime Time By Sam on 3/25/2019Sam wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMaxspect advertises that this product's magnet will hold on 3/4" or 20 mm glass. It barely holds on 1/2" or 15 mm and does not hold AT ALL on glass with only a 5/8" thickness. Further, do not purchase this item if it is your intention to mount it vertically. The impeller slides down the impeller shaft and jams. This occurred over half a dozen times within 24-hours. Still no app compatibility or control yet either.
DEAD QUITE By Scott on 3/22/2019Scott would recommend this product to a friendSo this new design I think saved my marriage. I've had two XF230 pumps on my 6' tank for about a year. I truly love the flow and power of the Gyre design, but I've not loved the mechanical design of removing and reinstalling the blades, gaskets, and bearings (terrible design). I've had nothing but issues running the XF230s with the IceCap Gyre Interface modules (can't operate below 20%, and mine at least will not produce output above about 50-55% of total output volume.), and finally the NOISE. The XF230s are loud, extremely loud. Placing the XF230s on an intermittent pulse (80% for 6 seconds) will drive any sane person completely nuts in about fifteen minutes. The unrelenting pulsing, and whine from the block motors was just unbearable.
The New XF350... While I can not speak to cleaning, or mechanical design yet (just installed mine last night) the silence is truly impressive. While these new pumps from what I've been told do not work with the IceCap Gyre Interface Modules (so still no direct integration with my Apex (unbelievable)), they are beyond a shadow of a doubt silent in operation. Additionally and as expected the output from these pumps is tremendous. I'll be running these on a 72" L x 25" D x 24" H tank that normally saw me bursting at around 80% utilization of the XF230s. These XF350s will be down around 50% at most I think so I don't blast everything in the tank....
While I (and my family) are super excited about the quietness of these pumps, I'm knocking off a star for the simple fact that it's insane and quite ridiculous that Maxspect has not included some solution for Apex integration. My inability to slow my pumps way down during Auto-feeding is a true shame.
