Product Details

Behringer NU3000DSP iNUKE 3000 Watt Power Amplifier with DSP

Behringer has spent years fine-tuning the high-density Class-D technology that gives the iNUKE Series its oomph. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of our circuitry, these amps react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. The revolutionary high-density Class-D technology combined with ultra-efficient switch-mode power supplies ensures these feather-light powerhouses will drive your rig effortlessly for many years to come.

When this amazing amplifier technology is combined with our state-of-the-art switching-mode power supplies, these amplifiers provide tremendous punch. And because they are so much more efficient than conventional designs, they run cooler and don’t require the massive heat sinks and heavy toroid transformers typically associated with their conventional counterparts.

The front panel controls and indicators provide your system’s vital signs at a glance. After pressing the Power button, the Power LED lights to show the amp is ready for action. All channels feature positive-detent Gain controls with Signal LEDs that light when a signal is present, as well as clip LEDs to indicate when the signal is distorted and you need to reduce the input signal.

The rear panel is just as elegant, with combo XLR and 1/4" TRS input connectors making the iNUKE compatible with virtually any source, balanced or unbalanced. Professional twist-lock speaker sockets are provided to ensure every drop of output power gets to your loudspeakers. The rear panel is also where you'll find the switches that enable iNUKE amps to work in either dual mono, stereo or mono bridge mode. A built-in crossover switch enables the amp to operate in biamp mode, sending low frequency content to passive subwoofers, while the high frequency output is channeled to full range loudspeakers.

For sound engineers requiring high-level control capability, iNUKE DSP Series amplifiers come ready for action right out-of-the-box. The built-in DSP and 24-bit/96 kHz converters ensure the ultimate signal integrity with an extremely broad dynamic range. DSP functions include a sophisticated delay for delay-line loudspeakers, crossover, EQ (eight parametric, two dynamic), and dynamics processing with lockable security settings. A convenient front panel LCD display allows you to setup and make adjustments directly at the amplifier, without the need for a PC. All iNUKE DSP models can also be set up, controlled and monitored via the front panel USB connector.

Sporting massive output ratings, lightweight Class-D technology, an equally lightweight price tag, and all the amenities a professional audio engineer could ask for, Behringer iNUKE amplifiers are serious amps for the most demanding applications.

Behringer NU3000DSP iNUKE 3000 Watt Power Amplifier with DSP
Behringer NU3000DSP iNUKE 3000 Watt Power Amplifier with DSP is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome power, best DSP functionalityVery nice amp. Purchased to use as power amp for failed Sunfire plate amp. DSP allowed me to dial it in perfectly and it sounded great. Turns out that the fan was too loud and i had to return...shame! The DSP feature set would be beyond awesome in a sub plate amp, but there are only the analog knobs currently offered, shame as this was a great feature!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, swap the fan for home theaterI am using a 3000DSP bridged to drive an RSS460HO (18" Dayton) in a ported box tuned to 17hz. All of the settings can be optimized for this setup, but you need to use two filters to extend a highpass filter below the 20hz minimum.I swapped the fan for an 80mm Noctua and used the LNA (low noise adapter). It's a resistor harness. Since my room is air-conditioned and I don't drive it ARs continuously, I have yet to have any heating issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for home AV receiver to power SI subs.Has plenty of power to power 2 600 watt rms subs. The receiver is easy to setup and the DSP is great giving you added flexibility. I have no idea what most of it does but the simple stuff like setting the ohm and what mode you want is easy to figure out.You will however need to bump the DB level LFE to +10. I got a Artclean box pro to help with the =10 to +4 conversion of the pro audio gear. One I hooked that up it worked great. Without the Art box the amp needed to have all the gains turned way up. Not a good thing to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best valueYou can't beat the flexibility of the DSP for the price. I used this amp for an HT subwoofer application and couldn't be happier so far. Be sure and look up bench test results, you will find this amp only outputs its full rated power for a short term and is capable of a bit less continuous. As long as you know what you are getting it's really difficult to find another amp with the DSP and this much power. The weight savings of the Class D is another plus. I recommend adding heatsinks to the power transistors so the amp runs cooler and quieter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick comments1. Small and light, and feels reasonably well built, though it's by no means a tank.2. DSP software is pretty easy to use. Changes made on the computer are immediately applied to the amp, so you can adjust/measure very rapidly.3. Fan in amp is pretty loud even at idle (negative for home theater use#.4. LED's are very bright #negative for home theater use#.5. High Pass and PEQ center frequencies can be adjusted down to 20 hz #lower would be useful for home theater applications with subsonic subwoofers).6. I have not measured actual output to confirm Behringer's specs.

Will this amp provide output below 20 Hz for a HT subwoofer application?

Asked by: Mastercraft
Yes. You can turn off the subsonic filter to get full signal. Average system chain roll off is 5Hz. With sealed systems usually don't need a subsonic filter, ported does and you can use the PEQ to drop the filter below 20Hz if needed.

I am looking to buy this amp. But I am not quite sure how I connect it to my Denon AVR-X1100W. I do not see any RCA out from the receiver to even feed to some sort of converter.

Asked by: awaz
This receiver appears to have two subwoofer outputs near the upper left hand corner of the back panel. These would be connected to a converter such as the ART Cleanbox or Rolls Promatch.

Will this amp accept a 3 ohm load from a JL 13W7?  

Asked by: jclm
Yes, but only if one channel is used in stereo mode. I would not recommend anything lower than a 4 ohm load in bridged mode.

I have the 3000dsp with a single UM15 sealed on it. I recently purchased a second UM15. I swapped the wires on the speakon to +2/-2 to work with channel b. When I hooked up the second sub, no sound. Suggestions? Amp setting I missed?

Asked by: fishdude
When simply connecting another speaker to channel B, The speakon connections are the same. +1 -1. Only when bi-amping will you use +2 -2. Check the BIAMP setting to insure the high pass and low pass setting.

I have this amp running one 4 ohm sub off one channel. I want to get a second sub (dual 4 ohm voice coil) to run off the other channel in 2 ohm mode. So, can I use one channel at a 4 ohm load & the other channel at 2 ohms? I think so but i am not sure

Asked by: new guy 1111
Yes this should not be a problem for this amplifier.

This is an off the wall question. If I were to use this amp off a 12V DC system, what size inverter would be needed to supply this little beast and can you reference a part number if one is available?

Asked by: Brian JM
According to the manual, the power consumption at 1/8 power into 2 ohms is 350 watts. I would recommend no less than a 3,000 watt inverter for this application.
