Behringer has introduced new iNuke power amps – the iNuke12000 and iNuke12000DSP (pictured), which both deliver a 12,000-Watt total output.
That's 6,000 Watts per-channel at two Ohms, or 3,000 Watts at four Ohms, and they also weigh less than 18 lbs/8 kg and occupy only two rack spaces each.
iNuke amplifiers implement high-density Class-D technology, which, when combined with their efficient switch-mode power supply, deliver plenty of punch. The new units run cooler and don’t require massive heat sinks and heavy toroidal transformers.
The front panel controls and indicators provide users with vital information at a glance. Both channels feature positive-detent Gain controls with Signal LEDs that light up when a signal is present, as well as clip LEDs to indicate when the signal is distorted. Zero-Attack limiters offer maximum output level with reliable overload protection.
There is also a built-in Subwoofer/Satellite crossover for added flexibility. Input connectors on the iNuke are XLR and ¼” TRS combination jacks for compatibility with any source. Professional twist lock speaker connectors can be found on the back panel.
For sound engineers requiring high-level control capability, iNuke DSP Series amplifiers come with built-in DSP and 24 bit/96 kHz converters to ensure signal integrity with a broad dynamic range. DSP functions include a sophisticated delay, crossover, EQ (eight parametric, two dynamic), and dynamics processing with lockable security settings. All iNuke DSP models can be set up, controlled and monitored via the front panel USB connector.
"iNuke power amps have been wildly successful because they're dependable, put out massive amounts of power, yet weigh so very little thanks to our revolutionary high-density Class-D technology," said Costa Lakoumentas, senior VP of marketing at Music Group. "But we think we may have outdone ourselves with the new iNuke NU12000, which packs a whopping 12,000-Watt total output."
