holy jesus that's a big amp.
3,800 peak watts at 4 ohms bridged -
in the "unlikely" event the amp had a problem, your speakers would be toast.
But that is peak watts.
The owners manual only give peak watts - it does not give the RMS ratings at all.
It is 800 watts peak per channel at 8 ohms
which is maybe 400 to 470 watts RMS.
Even that could be a little high.
Boy, that site goes the extra mile to not let you know it's a Behringer product.
You can hear it live
Unless you're playing an outdoor festival in front of 80,000 people, why in god's name would you need something that powerful?
in the words of H.J. Simpson, "Sweet, merciful crap!" I'd hate to pay the electric bill for that amp.
Probably. When I installed car audio equipment I used to see these 5000 watt amps the size of briefcase, weighed 3 pounds and had a circuit board the size of a dollar bill. Yeah, maybe 3,800 watts...if struck by lightning.
Bugera is Behringer. (A fancy brand-name for their tube amps)
They named it the Nuke because thats what its going to do to itself as soon as your turn it on.
No but seriously, there is so much wrong with this. No RMS ratings... what a scam.
I can't find any info saying this amp is all tube though.
Also of note is that the manual says power supply max consumption is 3600 watts. Two things raise an eyebrow at this. 1. No amp is 100% efficient. 2. A 3600 watt power supply consumption would require a 30amp 120volt circuit to power it.
