    OK, thanks everyone I’ll buy a PA Power Amp then, I’m convinced now!

    Now, you guys made me doubt about Bheringer and I don’t forcefully need DSP capability so what’s your best bang for the money recommendation?

    I need to get at least 1,000 watts per channel, need 2 channels and if it can drive 2 ohm speakers that’d be the cherry in the cake!!

    Ahhh, if it’s older even better because it’s easier to fix in case it breaks...

    Thanks

      Just don't forget you might need a mixer or similar in order to really bump up the input voltage into a PA style amp.

      Best bang for the money are the XBS clone amps (FP14k & FP20k), but it's a catch-22 because it's coming from China. Next would be the Crest Pro-Lite Series, followed by the Peavey IPR2 series. IMO.

        I was not aware of this requirement, could you please elaborate?

          I think something called a Cleanbox Pro (https://www.parts-express.com/art-cl...erter--245-868) is one of the more widely used pieces that ups the output voltage from a receiver sub-out to the inputs of the pro-amp.

            It's more than just uping voltages. It's converting from an unbalanced signal, usually RCA on the receiver, to a balanced signal, usually XLR or TRS, on a "pro" amp. Some amps like the Behringer iNuke will accept balanced or unbalanced signals. Look at the specs for the receiver, if it's capable of driving more than 4 volts then all you need is the correct cable to hook it up to a "pro" amp.

              Most Pro amplifiers state the sensitivity - that specified voltage at the input (with the level control wide open) that will cause the amplifier to reach full rated power.
              I've been using Pro Amps in mixed systems for years - If the Source output voltage is sufficient, it's not a problem.
              Some Crown amps can either be set to 0.77v or 1.4v input sensitivity.
              To take advantage of common mode noise rejection of balanced wiring - the entire system ( including sources ) has to be balanced

                I'm so upset about these new iNuke replacements. I bought my ugly iNuke like one month before these came out.

                I have an iNuke NU6000DSP that I use for two sealed SDX12 subwoofers in my living room. It is plenty of power to get some ridiculous output.

                  The Behringer amps can be run from normal subwoofer out connections without anything in between

                    Thanks again everybody, learning new things every day in this forum

                    BTW, I have a NU6000DSP still unopened that I bought about 2 years ago and now I want to buy another but I'm having an issue here, I found a deal for the older NU6000DSP at $320 shipped vs. the new NX6000D at $450....

                      I thought so but good to have confirmed.
                      Thanks
