Behringer NX3000

Power amplifier — 440 watts x 2 at 8 ohms, 3000 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged

Overview

Our take on the Behringer NX3000

Weighing in at under eight pounds, Behringer's NX3000 2-channel power amplifier can punch out 440 watts per channel through 8 ohms, 900 watts per channel into 4 ohms, 1500 watts per channel at 2 ohms, and a whopping 3,000 watts when bridged in mono, 1-channel mode. Its class D design and "back to front" ventilation system ensure that the amp will run reliably with virtually no thermal buildup, eliminating the need for the heavy transformers and massive heat sinks found in "old school" amps.

This lightweight amp packs a powerful punch

It has brains too

This amplifier uses Behringer's SmartSense loudspeaker impedance compensation technology, so its frequency response isn't dependent on the load it drives — in other words, the amp sounds the same no matter what speaker's attached. The built-in "Zero Attack" limiters let you get the most output, but still protect your speakers from being overdriven. 

A simple and effective design

The NX3000's onboard crossover can be switched to low-pass for powering subwoofers, high-pass when another amp is powering the sub, or full-range for your full-range PA speakers. Large gain knobs on the front panel let you easily adjust the level of each channel. LED arrays show the relative output levels as well as indicate when the limiter engages.
