I was thinking about grabbing one to power four UXL-18's but after reading what the price was going to be it doesn't appear to be any cheaper then just buying two inuke 6000DSP's.
Am I mistaken when I thought I read $899 for the non DSP model?

I just bought two 6000DSP models for $399ea.

The advantage of the 12000 is that it does 2 ohm stero and the 6000 does not.

Anybody with any degree of experience with PA's knows they can't sustain their nameplate rating. However, they do know they can hit it for a short period of time. This is paramount when dealing with live and uncompressed music; 20 dB dynamic range! The amps are designed around this very notion. But if people want to get bent out of shape...their choice. The iNuke provides tremendous headroom. The only issue compared to the 14k clones is how low they go before roll-off occurs.

As a FYI, A 20A breaker will do 100A for over a second!

I must be guilty because people say I am guilty because they chose to call me guilty because they refuse to see the truth. Much easier to be part of the mob..

Ya, no matter how you slice it, even 75% of 12,000w for any length time is sweet for an affordable and lightweight package. cool.gif

I make an inquiry to Behringer regarding the release date and got a message back within 48 hours stating that there was no immediate release planned. eek.gif

I have sold and used Behringer nu6000 amps aprox [email protected] ohms (forget peaks or continuous @ certain freq we all kno. these are monster amps and with 3 yr warranty.. for the price buy some spares and you will never be down. I have never had one go down.. although I deal with alot of DJs who can.. last one blew a side bc running 2ohms a side when I told them no.. have seen them in use for sound production companys 1 nu6000 per 2 double 18 subs.. not missing a beat.. the inuke12000 is nice but why? just buy 2 6000s and for monitors nu46000 4 ch amp sweet.. light weight and doesn't break the back or the bank.. and yes I am a dealer.. the only other amps i use are yorkville 6040/6020 class H.. I came across this forum looking for review of the nu12000 which is available.. st price $999.. now if they make a 4 ch version I will buy immediately..(no review needed considering warranty) Rock On...

I am so very happy to say that Vinyl is making a big return (never really left in "real DJ" circles) and Turntables from the Technics (SL1200MKI-II) that I use(d) and very ("very") expensive ones that are now an art, have always been available. Kids these days are learning that vinyl is better. The tide is re-turning. But to tie this to the topic, that means newer higher efficiency systems are going to be needed that can handle the dynamics of vinyl that is lost in digital. Although these are digital amps, I think they will make the bridge nicely. What with big things that have been done, everyone has to go bigger and better. These amps will make it easier and simpler to power the "Mega-Systems" of the future and work in all the technical aspects in building a big system that need to be considered. Already, some turntable manufacturers are putting onboard preamps in the tables since the other equipment has dropped that capability. It's going to be a very universal world. Once again that's where products such as these amps will play an integral part.

A big system that I am working on now, the owners want vinyl capability. I'm planning on using these amps to power the mains and variations of these amps for the rest of the room.

This may be a dumb question and slightly off topic but..... Do you need an amp with dsp to run a sub if your pre/pro has audessyXT? This has recently become relevent to me as i've come upon some old giant (2x18) EAW pro subs and want to integrate them into my system.

The answer is...it depends.

Most of the guys in the DIY forum don't like the way the Audyssey calibrates their bass (flat). They like to be able to adjust frequencies independently of each other. If you like the bass that you get from the Audyssey calibration, then no you wouldn't need the DSP for that.

However, the DSP has a high pass filter you can set around 20 hz to protect your subs. This is especially useful if you use ported subs.

Hope this helps.

Behringer unleashes the most powerful iNuke ever. The iNuke 12000 (and the DSP version) can output 12,000 watts (peak), very impressive considering the fact it weighs only 18 lbs and takes up only two rack spaces. The iNuke series is very popular among DIY subwoofer builders as well as home theater enthusiasts thanks to the watts-per-dollar ratio they provide as well as their efficiency and light weight. In general the main gripe regarding the iNuke series of amplifiers is that the RMS rating is lower than the advertised power rating - the iNuke 6000 put out about 4,000 watts or real power. The iNuke 12000DSP doubles that, so real-world power (RMS) should be in the 8,000 watt range - 4,000 per channel - into 2 ohms which should be enough to drive any subwoofer that I am aware of. Retail is expected to be $899 for the 12000 and $999 for the 12000DSP.<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Yes, that’s right—a stereo power amplifier with 6,000 Watts output per channel @ 2 Ohms, or 2 x 3,000 Watts @ 4 Ohms—and it weighs less than 18 lbs. / 8.2 kg.

10-6-2019 . id like to reply to the people that say who would use a behringer nu12000 . i certainly would seeing as how i have 2 of them . i have 6 eaw sb184c subs with 1 nu12000 and 6 eaw cx294ix tops running a nu12000 in my 10 x 20 foot little room . and yes i love it even though i need to put my ear plugs in when i crank it past 3 on my mixer .you cant beat it for the price . i cant wait until they come out with a 24000 watt version then id only need 1 amp but then id half to invest in more speakers and need 2 ,24000 watt amps . i wasent a fan of behringer but i am now . lots of clean power at a low price . i love them . some of us do like it louder than tolerable .
