If you don't know what a 32A Powercon connector is... Then you don't even need to be looking for an amp this big. Your speakers probably can't even use half what this amp will put out. You will just damage your equipment from neglegence.
Trust me when I tell you that people can use way more than this amp can provide! That are some serious setups on this forum!
The iu12000dsp does not have a basic Edison style plug like the smaller iNukes. It has a Powercon 32A inlet. This amp is setup to pull 25Amps at 220Volts or 50amps at 110Volts. You can run this on a standard wall socket, but you can only run it at about half before tripping a breaker.
Probably better to get a dedicated circuit for this I agree, but this is for peak usage and not continuous sign waves. So I disagree with your statement.
I personally can't wait to get this in our shop and see the results! Even if it doesn't quite put out 6000 Watts RMS... Where else can you find an amp that powerful with an extremely high quality DSP and protection for under $1000? Yes! High quality! If Behringer does anything right, it would be digital processing for sure!
I would love to see your bench tests too!
Oh.. And people talking about 10Hz... This is a musical amp, not a theater amp. You will need a whole different style of amp for installs like that. Only look at the musical characteristics down to 20Hz. The average human ear can only hear down to around or slightly below 30Hz.
The human ear can hear down to 20hz. The subsonic bass is what people spent a lot of money on and what so many people crave!
Advice.....There are a lot of purists on this forum. Just be careful on how you say things and what you say even with the disclaimer.
That being said, this is a wonderful forum with a lot of great information that only costs you your time. So, welcome to AVS!
