Behringer NX6000 Class-D Power Amplifier (6,000 Watts)

No longer available at zZounds
Built for serious volume, the Behringer NX6000 power amp is easy to operate and uses SmartSense technology to deliver extended full-range frequency response.
The Behringer NX6000 power amplifier packs 6000 Watts (2 x 3000 Watts @ 4 Ohms; 2 x 1600 Watts @ 8 Ohms) into exceptionally lightweight (13 lbs / 5.9 kg) and rack-mountable packages. And because the NX6000 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 its conventional counterparts. Thanks to Behringer's "Zero-Attack" limiters that offer maximum output level with exceptionally-reliable overload protection and SmartSense Loudspeaker impedance compensation, which provides fully linear frequency response at any speaker load impedance, you can run the NX6000 full-out for hours on-end. Our revolutionary high-density Class-D technology, combined with an ultra-efficient, switch-mode power supply ensure this feather-light powerhouse will drive your rig for many years to come.

Class-D - Massive Power, Perfect Sound

Thanks to Behringer's High-Density Class-D amplifier Technology, they are able to provide you with enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency -- and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely-powerful products that read more are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.

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 Limit LEDs to indicate when the amplifier is running at full capacity. Just as elegant as the front, the rear panel is home to the combo XLR and 1/4" TRS Input connectors, making the NX6000 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 the NX6000 amp to run in your choice of dual mono or stereo modes. The NX6000's built-in Crossover switch sets the amp to Full-Range mode, where the output is sent unfiltered to your loudspeakers, or Bi-amp mode, which sends only the low-frequency content (100 Hz) is channeled to your full-range loudspeakers.

SmartSense Impedance Compensation

Behringer's SmartSense Technology puts the punch back into Class-D amplification, providing vastly improved full-range frequency response with more powerfully dynamic bass, and smoother high-frequency reproduction. The resulting output is no longer dependent on the actual load, but is rendered perfectly ruler flat via impedance compensation. NX6000's design also incorporates a significantly-higher damping factor that yields better amplifier control over the loudspeaker for stronger audio reproduction -- especially in the LF area.

Sound Value

Sporting massive output ratings, lightweight Class-D technology and an equally lightweight price tag -- plus all the amenities a professional audio engineer could ask for -- the BEHRINGER NX6000 power amplifier is a serious amp for your most demanding applications.

"Sounds great but not reliable"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
We bought two NX6000's for our classic rock/country band, which doesn't play out too often, maybe 8-10 times/year. After six or seven shows, one amp has completely failed, just turned off while we were playing, with no warning, no loud pop, no drama. We are old guys in our 50's playing for older people at our local Eagles club, so not all super loud, running at 8 ohms pushing a single 18" and a Yamaha S115 cab per side, using good 12ga speaker wire and connectors. Seems these amps have a reputation for losing their power supply boards, which is what I think happened to ours. There's quite a bit on the web about this. My take: they are great sounding amps that are unfortunately not something you can't rely on, possibly due to lack of quality workmanship/components. They are dirt cheap however so some will say we got what we deserved but still was hoping to get more than a few gigs before I started replacing them. BTW zZounds seems to be a good retailer, fair pricing, fast shipping, I have no problem with them whatsoever.
