Product Details

Behringer NU6000DSP iNUKE 6000W Lightweight Power Amplifier with DSP

iNUKE Series power amplifiers pack massive amounts of output power into exceptionally lightweight, rack-mountable packages. Behringer's revolutionary high-density Class-D technology combined with ultra-efficient switch-mode power supplies ensure these feather-light powerhouses will drive your rig effortlessly for many years to come.
After many years of 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 Behringer's circuitry, these amps react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses.

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 fullrange loudspeakers (CH1>100 Hz / CH2<100 Hz or FULLRANGE).

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 NU6000DSP iNUKE 6000W Lightweight Power Amplifier with DSP
Behringer NU6000DSP iNUKE 6000W Lightweight Power Amplifier with DSP is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Things have changed with Class D now affordable AND reliable...I am a manufacturer of specialized pro audio systems sold to higher-end SR providers in the US and abroad. I typically do not suggest or buy "value" components for my customers, but in some cases where weight IS an issue, OR space and power is not an issue (fixed installs)... I have some customers who want to cut costs and these amps are usable to them. I also demo my products at shows and events across the US and I started to use these amps for limited duties for testing purposes at smaller shows and I've been happy with the results over close to three years of testing in real word applications.Although my company doesn't sell a "value line" speaker system (what we manufacture), customers do need lower powered amplifiers for certain duties in any configuration. In the past, the QSC PLX line has filled MOST of the smaller power amp work we've needed for mids/highs, monitors and fills in our systems that we demo (and sometimes also sell WITH amps and processing included). The PLX's do a great job for the price and weight (22 lbs). But lately, the game is changing as these class D (read super lightweight) amps have come out and filled a demand for lighter amp racks with more efficient power draw. And these new "light weights" are costing less than 1/2 of these older, Class H QSC's too.The reservations pro users have with value amps is reliability-- "when is it going to fail" isn't something you want to think about, show-to-show, and so for the high dollar SR providers you'll never see these amps in use. But for smaller regional sound companies and touring players hauling their own PA-- these amps might work as well as the big ticket amps if your willing to use enough of them AND use them wisely. The reason I used BOTH of these models in testing, is that they each have different, "sweet spots" of power so the configuration of many different systems is more easy with flexible power level choices. I also would (still) guess they draw power a bit differently, keeping breakers from flipping as well.If you own a bar/club you're maybe not interested in spending $40k for a sound system, when you only run a full rack a few hours on Friday and Saturday nights for local acts. If you are a musician gigging three nights a week and hauling the gear yourself, you are always figuring out ways to save your back and sweat-- especially before the show when you run up to the first set sweating bullets just when LD brings up the the 600 watt lights-- five feet above your head ;) Regional SR companies are often a one or two guy concern and loading in and out fast without the need for a box truck and a heavy axle is ALSO cool when you have racks of amps weighing under 50 lbs.So there are plenty of places in "pro audio" where multi-thousand dollar components are NOT needed because the user isn't too deep into the contract riders and national act requirements. In some instances, better value line products (like these amps) can fill a need well and so I found it necessary to test these new lines from Berhinger and Peavey (as nobody seemed to be getting anything else out worth looking at here in the US at that time a few years ago).After several years of testing in heat, humidity and various applications in SR rigs (right next to my back-up amp racks)-- I'd say that these amps have both made the cut for use in my smaller SR demo rig (2-3k audience, line array) using them on everything but my subs. Early production models had issues, but later models (replaced by both companies right away) are doing well after close to three years of service with few reported failures since these first hiccups. With smaller shows (where contract riders don't exist), these amps can be used in SR rigs with confidence given they aren't asked to do what they can't. Today, I'd use both these amps in my smaller touring SR system (2-3k audience). And if you own a distro and use enough of them-- they WILL work on subs too. I have spec'ed these amps for a few, serious SR rig owners and touring bass player's rigs and these sound guys and musicians are very happy to be saving money, their "backs" (weight) and their "racks" (space gained when using the DSP models).The last year, several of my customers are now also using both these amps for bass rigs, tweeter/mid-range (bi-amped) high packs (don't load tweeters below 8 ohms though-- you'll lose some high-end there), sub-woofer use (smaller rigs- one or two subs a side) and monitor rigs. And we've all been able to get them to sound as good as anything else we've used FOR THE SAME configs in the past.IF used for subs, you have to expect they will run short on output before their big brother's do. I typically use a 10k watt, four channel amp with my subs since I seldom use no less than two horn loaded, very high output subs for any shows I demo for. But I've tested these a few times in my rig for a few non-critical events and they did better than I expected they would. After a few times out with my subs, I'd run the IPR3000 bridged into larger powered subs with a total 4 ohm load, OR the NU6000 for subs will less RMS power ability (also at 4 ohms loads, per channel).As both these amps have excellent, built in clip limiters (by necessity as digital clipping is WAY more destructive than analog), I've seen them hold up to the super heavy-duty (rave) shows with rolling bass notes going for hours on a close friend's rig too. AS LONG AS YOU STAY OUT OF HEAVY CLIPPING, these new designs have limiting built in (without any way to defeat them) making user errors less costly if/when you do run them into the clip light level some. When you push these amps into full power, you aren't getting the softer distortion you would from an analog amp because these limiters are set to not allow them to get to digital clipping in any case. But push them too far and you might test their "limit"... and IF you get digital distortion, you'll lose BOTH woofers and tweeters VERY fast. I've not tested to this level of abuse and for those who just can't understand gain structure this amp "might go to 11"... but how long it will stay there is something I can't tell you-- I'll never do it when I can get a larger amp OR more amps to do the right job.The rig I saw running dub-step using SIX of these amps on three 20 amp runs was hitting clip lights on the down beat only and did well into both subs and top boxes. The SR guy in Austin, TX running these amps has run 20 shows a year for years and he's happy and sold off some expensive QSC and Crest amps to go exclusively with both these amps. He owns a few more amps now so some extra rack space was needed, BUT racks weigh half what they did, and more amps mean you can be very versatile with system configs (and pricing them out) as you have more channels for more config options. AND... flipping 10 lb amps in and out of racks is a LOT easier than 50 lbs amps all day long!So many serious users and myself are all loving the light weight and with power draws seeming to not be an issue but a benefit, the only real concern is reliability. I'd only be concerned with subs and when you have a LOT of subs to power, it's time for bigger guns or lots of racks (and possible power issues if you try to use a lot of these at once-- this is an unknown to me).With my own time testing these amps, I'm convinced they are built well enough to be used in smaller touring RS rigs, bass rigs and installs that don't run 24/7 AND if they don't travel down the road in the back of the semi, I think they could be trusted for years of service. They do seem to hold up well in an average SKB rack (something I didn't own for MANY years and today appreciate!)Buy enough of these (an lots of good, long 10 gauge, 100 ft power cords), and split the FOH to stereo, bi/tri-ammed racks and save on speaker wires. Then keep a spare amp around and most smaller SR rig owners are good to go with the typical 1500 - 3000 audience rig. And a last note is to always mix sub-woofer amps with mid/high and monitor amps on your circuits (don't put both sub amps on the same circuit).And remember-- all the great touring amps of the last five years have ALL been Class D (or some derivative like Lab G's "class TD"). And now it's these smaller versions of that same technology that are coming to the average user (at a price they can afford) that is turning a few heads lately. For small to medium DJ work and part-time gigging bands: this is the market they were built and targeted to. But for SR and pro level work... with Behringer's latest QC measures and consolidated manufacturing in their NEW China plant-- they have overcome the old stigma of "planned failure" while Peavey has also benefited from the acquisition of Crest Audio (who's engineering folks actually designed the IPR3000 amp for the Peavey brand).I can not say I've been a fan of either of these companies over the 30 years I've worked in pro audio-- but these two amps I've worked with for a few years now, when run at proper levels and configurations, have impressed me and a few other operators to the point I have come to actually suggest their use where they are a fit and when the customer is wanting something that works well for what THEY need-- and sometimes this is a smaller, lighter, leaner SR system or stage bass rig where they only run 10-15 hours a week (without rider concerns).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW..For the money, No stronger amp availableI bought this amp to run the subs on my largest DJ rig, and could not be happier. I did a MMA fight tournament last weekend, had 2 pairs of Cerwin Vega 3 way cabs on 500 WRMS per speaker, cut off at about 50 hz, and this amp running a single Earthquake 15" DVC, 4 ohms per channel from 120 and down.... WOW What a bottom end.... The building was a college gym, about 1500 people attending. I ran out of highs LONG BEFORE my bass. The single 15" is very capable of holding even double this amp so I was not worried about OVER POWERING, but I WAS worried about NOT HAVING ENOUGH. Until I cranked the volume... This thing was pumping the Earthquake so hard, the building was rattling like some poorly installed car stereo with multiple subs and amps, no sound deadening material... as for the on board x-overs, E.Q.s, and stuff, great to have, easy to use, and fairly clean. If you want an amp to push the heck out of a really large sub box, this amp will do it... It is not brigable, but no need.. 4 ohms stereo per side, 2500 WRMS per channel is about what I was getting. (I metered it) If you want an amp like this for full range, get the 3,000 or 1,000 watt one... this is just too much power.

Behringer NU6000DSP iNUKE 6000W Lightweight Power Amplifier with DSP

What amp is better for subwoofer use,I plan on using the titanic 15" woofer, is the Behringer NU6000DSP better or the STA1000 plate amp better?

Asked by: Uleez
This is basically apples and oranges. The NU6000 has many times more power but is not bridgeable. You would be farther ahead using something like the the NU3000DSP which is twice the power in bridged mode and still has the DSP for around $100 cheaper.

Dimensions?

The dimensions appear to be missing from this model's description but do exist on the NU3000, for instance.
Asked by: chmedly
The amp is designed for 19" racks and has 2 rack spaces-[up & down] that equals 3 & 1/2". It's designed for 4 ohms minimum per side and I suggest front and rear mounting of this amplifier.

Is it safe to run 3ohm load on this amp?

I have four Emenice Lab 12 subwoofer and it is 6ohm each. I want to run them on stereo in parallel I know that the load would drop to 3ohm each channel, but this amp Behringer 6000DSP is rated only at 4ohm. Is it safe for this amp?. Thanks
Asked by: jgoff
Behringer does not recommend any load lower than 4 ohms for this amplifier.

What are the rms outputs per ohm range?

I don't see rms values or distortion figures.
Asked by: honk
Beringer doesn't publish full specs. I don't know why. It "seems" to be prevalent amongst Class D products. The claim Output power (stereo): 1,500 watts x 2 (8 ohms), 3,000 watts x 2 (4 ohms) which is quite a claim. It assumes a perfect design - ie power doubling when impedance halves. Mind you, I'm not criticizing. It's a great amp for pro use, or for subwoofers and other power hungry applications. It is frustrating when a manufacturer doesn't provide similar data to compare apples to apples. You might wish to contact the US distributor directly.
