Ok. Just got off the phone with Behringer CARE. I talked to Shane. Shane was the technician who worked on my amplifier. Shane stated that the response from Behringer engineers is that the NU12000 is indeed putting out 12,000 watts PEAK.....He then stated the tests performed on the amplifier by Brian were way to strenuous and unlikely in any scenario in which the amplifier would be used (do you know me? or anyone in the DIY forum?!!!). He said the amplifier is 6000x2 peak and more around half of that rating into program (3000x2). He stated that the amplifier is "very intelligent" and will internally limit itself from shutting down during stressful scenarios such as Brian's test as the power supply etc. bog down.
So....everyone....the NU12000DSP is rated in PEAK power....
That being said, they are pre paying shipping both ways to have the front knobs/panel tightened up as they think the loose knobs happened in shipping.
Also, somewhere in the shuffle, my power cord went missing. I checked with Brian and Behringer and both said the amp arrived without a cord. I checked everywhere...didn't think I could lose a bright yellow 10/3 power cord....but I did.
Brian (just a stand up guy) is sending me a cable. Really appreciate what he has done here. Taken his time tested this amp twice and is sending me a cord (which I am still offering to pay for Brian!).
