OVERVIEW

Lightweight, high-density 6000-watt power amplifier

The NU6000, part of the iNUKE series from Behringer, is an extremely lightweight and durable power amplifier that will fit comfortably into any standard 19" rack with the rest of your gear.

Each channel has their own independent DC, LF, and thermal overload components that will automatically protect the amplifier and speakers to avoid any damage to your system.

The exterior of the NU6000 is manufactured with a sturdy metal housing that secures all of the internal components. The rear panel of the NU6000 has XLR and TRS input connections, and also features professional twist-lock speaker outputs that provide versatile and secure connections for your system. There are 4-segment signal and limit LED's on the front of the NU6000 that help you visually monitor performance levels. The NU6000 operates in stereo or dual-mono modes, and has a switch-mode power supply that provides noise-free audio with good transient response and low power consumption.

We are a fairly Large Church, Once a year we host an event called "Praise in the Park" Where we rent the entire Waterfront park of Buffalo. We needed to power our Subwoofer array to create a power alley. These Amps delivered! We set them up to power 4 18" subs each at a 4 Ohm load rated at 2250 per side. These amps ran cool for 9 hrs. Never over heated even though we ran them just below maximum power. The only down side is that they pull a great deal of power. We had to give each amp it's own dedicated 20 amp line of power. If you want to run an amp farm your going to need at least one circuit per amp. In other words 8 amps = 8 circuits or dedicated outlets or you will find yourself flipping breakers back on. If you feed these amps clean power they WILL deliver Bone Crushing Bass.. The kind of bass that make your eyes, and internal organs wobble! Great Job!

I have had the amp a week shy of 2 years It sounds awesome while it's working. It shutdown at a major gig with over a 1000 guest two weeks ago in the early evening.If you purchase the amp send in the registration I forgot and have to pay Behringer for the repair. A good amp should not only sound great but be dependable. Either buy two and keep the extra on hand or buy a Crown they are work horses and last a long time. I gave the Behringer a try,it's not a dependable amp if you gig a lot. Dj AL SOLeiL

So far So good

By John Diego

Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp:

I bought these amps for the price and for the weight. They are very light, almost to the point of questioning if there is anything in them. I own a small live sound co. and wanted to give these a try at a show on this past St Patty's day. Anyway the gig was 2 bands who each played 4 hour sets with music playing between sets and on breakes.These amps were on for more than 12 hours straight. One amp was powering 2 Peavey SP2 speakers and the other was powering 2 Peavey SP218's. Not only did they perform very well I had so much headroom left it was crazy. These amps never got even a little warm or close to clipping. I know time will tell but a brutal start to theit life they past with flying colors. FYI, the amps replaced a Peavey CS4000 and CS2000 and sounded better and had much more headroom.
Very easy to set up and use.Pretty basic but that's what I look for in amps.
Built pretty well.
Price for the power is unmatched.

      Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp:

      I hate Behringer. That being said I bought a nu6000 just to try against my QSC pl380's. I had heard about them and thought it's cheap enough so why not. I used an identical set of EAW SB1000's (4ohm load per channel) and same source and a/b'd them in a side by side comparison. I was SHOCKED! Just below clipping the amps, the inuke's were 5 or 6 db louder and much punchier than the pl380's. Even got my smaart rig out to verify what my ears told me. I now have 4 nu6000's in my rack (on my subs) and no pl 380's. I guess only time will tell if they are durable.

      Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp:

      I recently purchased this amp and a smaller iNuke 3000 to power my P.A. system. I run 2 18" sub woofers in mono bridge mode and 2 x 4 ohm full range cabinets each containing 2 x 15" 2 x 6" and an HF driver.

      I'm running the 3000 at full throttle and the 6000 at 70%.

      There was all but zero white noise at idle (you have to get right up to the mains and listen for it)and the sound was clean.

      After a 3 hour gig the fans were blowing COLD air!

      At just 12 lbs these amps are very easy to carry. They replaced old Peavey CS800X amps which weigh 48 lbs each. My rack went from 104 lbs down to 30 lbs and my bandmates were thanking me for the reduced weight.

      My total output went from 2400 watts with the CS amps up to 9000 watts with the iNukes! We play small to medium venues and a few small outdoor gigs (carnivals, block parties, pig roasts, picnics) and although the old amps did an adequate job, I didn't have much headroom left. With the iNukes I had PLENTY of headroom.

      The sound is clean and clear with no discernable distortion.

      You could spend a small fortune for "better quality" brands like Crown, QSC or Yamaha or get these and have some $$$ left for other gear. If you don't try and push an amp past its capabilities you WILL get clean results. I suspect those who say Behringer products are sloppy are trying to do just that.

      Get amps bigger than you need and run them at part throttle to get a clean result. For the price you can't go wrong with these light, powerful class D amps.

          Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp:

          Well, very impressed with the iNuke NU6000. I have logged about 20hrs in this amp an so far no problems. Im running it on a 4ohm load, volume knobs at about 70% since my spekers are only rated at 500RMS 1000Peak each where I'm running (4) 15'' speakers. I compared it side by side with my RMX2450 and my XTi4000 and I can honestly say this NU6000 can push more power than both of them individually. People just need to understand that having more power doesn't mean you can add more speakers. One needs to follow the spec recommendations. The only drawback was the limited options on your outputs but not really a issue. It does have a bulky front panel where it sits further out than my rmx and xti in my rack. Time will only tell the durability of the iNUKE Series of Amplifiers.

            I have only had it for 4 gigs, but it has worked perfectly and has easily already paid for itself! It runs so cool all night it is unbelievable! I am using it to power 2 sp218 cabinets. Plenty of power!!
            I can't speak for the durability of this amp, but I have used two EP2500 amps for about 4 years now, and they have never let me down. I used them in bridge mode to push two Peavey Sp218 cabs. I used them for a minimum of 100 shows each year, and never a single problem.
            As far as others complaining about fan noise... In a silent room it is hardly noticeable, in a club with 2 or more people talking you would never even know it was there! Buy it, and enjoy it!

              All I can say is WOW! Berhinger really out did them self on this product. This amplifier is very powerful and gives you that power you need to get the job done plus still have plenty of room to push more power if needed. My mains run 1000 watts rms and peak at 2000 watts a peace and a sub that runs at 550 watts rms and peaks at 1600 watts and it runs all of them at fall power with out coming close to peaking or in danger of cliping. I would recommend to make sure the venue or location you are planning on using it at has 30 amp breakers on there plug outlets and run your system on its own breaker with nothing else pulling power from it or you will be going back and forth to the breaker box often.

              Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp:

              As my review title says, I am well aware that sound snobs will tell you NOT to use Behringer gear. And some of their gear--especially in the past--has been substandard. However, I've had very good "luck" with several Behringer products. Their power amps, especially, are a bargain with excellent sound quality at an affordable price. I bought this amp to replace a 50 lb. Behringer EP4000 I've used for 6 years. That amp has been a dependable "tank"--lots of power, and just as heavy. After years of packing an amp rack around filled with class A/B amps has led me to replace them all with these lightweight class D amps. I went with Behringer because for the price, they have proven to be dependable and powerful. So I now have an iNukeNU6000, iNuke NU3000 and iNuke NU4-6000... All of which drive mains and six monitor mixes (if needed). In the small venues my bands play (no concert halls...mostly bars and private events) these amps provide more than enough sound. The quality is high. The amps stay cool. I will even be running a mix for a nationally recognized artist in a couple weeks using these amps. So I will let you know how these stand up over time. My NU3000 has held up for over two years without a problem so I expect the same from all the rest. Keeping these safely encased in an amp rack makes a huge difference in their expected lifespan.

              very lightweight amp, very loud, and very affordable. its kinda cheesy looking and the front controls stick out a bit further than my other stuff is the only drawback i have noticed so far. i would definitely purchase another if i had the need, but i play in smaller bars and this thing has plenty of vol for those places. I'm powering two passive peavey pv215 enclosures with it. Sounds real good! great purchase.....not sure of the long term tho..seems sturdy enough..no idea how long the electronics will last tho.

              This is another poorly built product by Behringer. Buy a better product because a good amp is important to your sound system. I read the reviews about this amp and got three of them. The wrong thing to do. The power ratings are not true, I tested the amps, they can not product the power given. One broke down after a few months and trying to get warranty work from Behringer, good luck. You will never talk to a real person. The numbers are answering machines. As a experience sound person, I should have known that the novice reviewing this product did not have any knowledge about amps. Please beware!

                    Got it this week and used it tonight to power a 18 inch sub and 2 -15 and a horn cab's.Hooking it up and dialing in the crossover is a piece of cake.I never had to turn the amp up over half way.Nice sound,lot of headroom. It seemed to blow cold air all night,I never smelled any kind of heat.Get the gold pac warranty from MF,its well worth it.Im going to buy a second one next week

                      Been using my Inuke 6000 for a year.60+ performances with a loud Nirvanaish sounding band and DJ'ing UGH Rap and dance music. It will protect if you run it too loud for too long but trust me when I say this your speakers WILL be smoking by that point but still work.So congrats to Behringer for helping me BE HEARD FOR 10 years.. I also use a 10 year old beat to hell PMP5000 for a mixer.The amp still works but one side is fritzy.(Hence the INuke). Buy one and you should enjoy. I did. :)

                        Faithfully advertised. Great power amp for the money. If you have super high expectations, buy a crown. If you want the most amp for your money, this is it.

                          I have 4 NU6000 and 2 NU4 6000 I have used these on several shows in different variations. I just got done running a big show using only 2 NU6000 and 1 NU4 6000 to power up 16 16ohm biamp line array cabs, prossessed through 1 DBX driverack pro. These never clipped and ran cool. The low damping factor of these amps delivered a clear sound with only 30 amps of consumption. Nice job on these amps and looking forward to the NU12000 coming soon.

                            as stated it doesn't have any where near the power as stated, the mono setting didn't operate, its distortion ratio was even more the nail, I'm glad I could return it and lucked out that it did have defect to enable the return

                              The iNUKE 6000 amps are superior for the price and output power they are rated for. They are being utilized to power (4) 3-way tops, (2) on-stage monitors, and (2) FH subs. We have a lot of headroom when it comes to extra power, you can call power on reserve!...NUKE 'EM BABY!...
