Overview

The iNUKE NU3000, like the rest of the iNUKE Series power amplifiers, packs massive amounts of output power into an exceptionally lightweight, rackmountable package. Behringer's revolutionary high-density Class-D technology combined with ultra-efficient switch-mode power supplies ensures this feather-light powerhouse will drive your rig effortlessly for many years to come.

Superb transient response
Behringer spent years fine-tuning the high-density Class-D technology that gives the iNUKE Series its oomph. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of the circuitry, this amp reacts instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses.

When this amazing amplifier technology is combined with Behringer's state-of-the-art switching-mode power supplies, this amplifiers= provides tremendous punch. And, because it is so much more efficient than conventional designs, it runs cooler and doesn't require the massive heat sinks and heavy toroid transformers typically associated with other conventional counterparts.

Sublimely simple operation
The front panel controls and indicators provide your system's vital signs at a glance. After pressing the Power button, the Power LED lights to show the amp is ready for action. All channels feature positive-detent Gain controls with Signal LEDs that light when a signal is present, as well as clip LEDs to indicate when the signal is distorted and you need to reduce the input signal.

The rear panel is just as elegant, with combo XLR and 1/4" TRS input connectors making the iNUKE NU3000 compatible with virtually any source, balanced or unbalanced. Professional twist-lock speaker sockets are provided to ensure every drop of output power gets to your loudspeakers.The rear panel is also where you'll find the switches that enable iNUKE amps to work in either dual mono, stereo or mono bridge mode. A built-in CROSSOVER switch enables the amp to operate in bi-amp mode, sending low frequency content to passive subwoofers, while the high-frequency output is channeled to full-range loudspeakers (CH1>100 Hz / CH2<100 Hz or FULLRANGE). Flick the LIMITER ON/OFF switch to activate the built-in overload protection, or turn it off if you're feeling lucky.

Value
Sporting massive output ratings, lightweight Class-D technology, an equally lightweight price tag, and all the amenities a professional audio engineer could ask for, the BEHRINGER iNUKE NU3000 amp is a serious amps for the most demanding applications.

So far, so good---and MUCH, MUCH lighter!

Just being stingy/conservative. Outside of carbon-fiber, I don't know if you could make it simultaneouly light and stronger.

Just being stingy/conservative. Outside of carbon-fiber, I don't know if you could make it simultaneouly light and stronger.
I bought one of these about 7 months ago to replace a Crown 20002XTi which I bought to replace a Carvin DCM monitor amp. I wanted the DSP because it seems to be impossible to buy a "monitor" power amp with eq, like the Carvin amp had. The Crown didn't work out---only XLR inputs (not good for accepting Monitor/Aux Send signals), and the DSP could only be adjusted via computer (with the USB located inconveniently in the rear). I tried the iNuke and, even without the DSP, loud and noiseless. I replaced the FOH poweramp (again, a Carvin) with a second unit. Loud, clear and noiseless---we cranked the amps to max and no hiss! I have some other Behringer Class-D stuff and none of it has failed. Some have said that power ratings are hyped---maybe so, but the iNuke3000 is easily louder than the Carvin DCM1200 and DCM1000 it replaced, and easily louder than the XTi2002, for less $$$. Oh, did I mention that 65 lb of Carvin is now only about 16 lb of Behringer? They sound fine and have useful DSP features, accessible from the front panel. I no longer need to use my EV XP200a system controller with my EV speakers because I can set slope filters in the iNukes to prevent over-excursion of full-range woofers and more accurately controll the subs. The dynamic eq option is another neat feature. All in all, they iNukes have simplified setup and transport with increased output capabilities---and with discounts-specials-coupons, all at bargain prices.

Of course, I'm old-school power amps (my VHT is worth carrying every sweatty pound), so I keep my fingers crossed---but, over the years, I've had either inherent or operator-induced failures from Carvin, Peavey, QSC, Yamaha and Mackie (as far back as Phase Linear and Marrantz)! So, with racking and normal care and operation---we'll see.

The included "manual" sucks---like the rest of the current crop of Behringer m"manuals", it's a multilinguallly confusing mess of a quick-start guide. Have a highlighter handy. The promised "technical manual" is yet to materialize. Download and run the free iNuke DSP software, even if you're not connected to an amp---it will show you and let you play with the options, features and parameters that are available on the amp. It will make a learning how to set things from the front panel of the amp a little more comprehensible.
Plastic fascia, so it lives in a SKB rack, tapped into an ISObar power conditioner. The sun at a couple of outside gigs didn't melt it or hinder it's operation. 7 months of trouble-free operation so far. Software is small (a good thing), intuitive, and quick---for PC. I don't know about Apple. A phone app would be killer.
Price/weight, price/power, price/sound/ and price/noise ratios are all just great. If the dependability is there, these things will be all over the place.

low power

very weak, estimate 150-200 watt per side, compared to other amps to get the power you need might as well go with something like crown, qsc, or carvin

    Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU3000 Power Amp:

    Awesome amp! Powerful, lightweight and runs cool. Very cool. I have 2 [one plays subs and other highs] and they are literally stacked on each other. I've played for 6 hours straight - at high levels - and these amps never even got warm. No durability issues or problems of any sort; both worked out the box. Both have worked ever since. Also have a behringer EQ and crossover - highly recommended!

      Comments about Behringer iNUKE NU3000 Power Amp:

      I had a sound gig a couple months back where the amp I was using for my mains failed just after set up. Luckily, a person that helped organize the event had a relative that ran sound and wasn't working that night. 10 min later, in walks a friendly guy with one of these amps. Plugged it in, fired it up and we were off to the races. While it lacked the comfortable amount of headroom I was use to, it wasn't a huge difference, it did great! I was pushing a pair of jbl srx722s, which love more power, but, played nice with this amp. So, I purchased one for use as back-up for my mains amp.

            Only used a few times but it has exceeded my expectations so far. Quiet and strong. No issues so far. I've had very good service from Behringer products in the past and here's hoping this amp lasts like my others have. Planning to buy another in the near future!

            this amp works great right out of the box. I run it a few hours everyday and have cranked it up several times and it holds it's own. if I had 3 of these they would still be lighter than the one amp I took out of my rack. After 40 years of hauling heavy gear I am so ready for another one of these.

                  I am putting together a sound system, to use for my son's rock band. I bought this amp on the advice of an online video review, due to its great performance and also the light weight, compared to other power amps. After several weeks of use, this thing rocks, and is ready to use, sounds great, and has enough power to drive our speaker system and more. I am ready to put in an order for the 4 channel model now. My only gripe, isn't with this product, but guitar centers cra ppy coupon program, I have yet to be able to use a coupon on any purchase I've tried. I always get an invalid coupon, or expired message, even though the coupon, still shows as Good on the printed version. Customer service was no help either. So please fix your coupon program, guitar center!
