"So if you're saying the real world RMS rating of that driver is around 500w, it sounds like a good match......?"

Difficult to say, about 60Vrms continuous per speaker was as far as I went up with my XTI6002, my gut feeling says it could maybe eat a little more power, but then - I like to be on the safe side. So, I guess, ~600W continuous RMS is what it can take - not much more.
For the XTI6002, this a cakewalk - it can sustain ~96Vrms per channel even into 4 Ohms (!) This amp is awesome.

Default I'm your wicked Uncle Ernie ...

I did some more "testing" tonight, playing The Who's "Tommy" at loud to really loud volumes. I don't have SPL readings, but if I am reading my no-fan NU6000 peak meters correctly, they are (low to high) 12, 190, 750, 3000 w/ch (4 ohm). My ancient, coal-burning Bose 901 II each is rated (per spec) at 270 wRMS/8 ohm and peak (<5 sec) of 400 w/8 ohm. I don't think it even got to "750" at all during my listening. Definitely, the NU6000 puts out more than enough for my little system Now to find an attenuator besides the NU6000 knobs. Still untried is seeing if the NU6000 will "thermal" after extended period. So far, no problems with it standing on end on floor, looking at first glance like a skinny tower PC.

Behringer now shows the iNuke12000 (non-DSP) version on the product list, and added both the 12000DSP and non DSP to the brochure.

Like the other Non-DSP models, This has a crossover switch fixed at 100 Hz on the back, which can be very helpful still. (seen in the Picture below)

Other than that, we find out the real weight of it:

"NU12000DSP
Ultra-Lightweight, High-Density
12000-Watt Power Amplifier with
DSP Control and USB Interface
Delivers 2 x 6000 Watts into 4 Ohms,
2 x 3000 Watts into 8 Ohms and
weighs less than 18 lbs / 8.2 kg"

The part where it says "2 x 6000 Watts into 4 Ohms, and 2 x 3000 Watts into 8 Ohms" conflicts with the power ratings on the back of the unit [in the 3D render] Seen below:

"My music listening is usually about 1m in front of the speakers between 100dB and 130dB for disco evening (would like to have more but is too expensive). Also, the fans would produce most noise in behind the rack, while I am usually in front. "

That was my usual listening habit up to about 2 weeks ago. For the months coming, that will not happen anymore soon ;-(. Since I had an accident with a cotton stick while cleaning my ears as usual (like you should never do!!), my tympanic memmbrane is torn as well as my middle ear inflammated (on one side). It hurted like hell so I wanted to cut off my head like of but finally decided to not do so.
Hope that I can enjoy listening to music at >100dB in stereo again some 4 - 8 months from now. Not sure if that is possible. Pray for me!

<sigh> As has been pointed out many *many* times, the "power rating" on the back is the mains power consumption required to be put there by the US regulators, and is measured -- as they specify -- at a fraction of full power, 1/8 IIRC. It's nothing to do with the "rms" or "peak" power output of an amplifier.

The label clearly shows 'output power' at various load impedances. 6000 watts @ 2 ohms, 3000 watts @ 4 ohms, 1500 watts @ 8 ohms.

My mistake, I thought you were referring to the power rating on the mains input -- which is on all the lower power amps, but not this one...

A message from Behringer on this issue:

Dear All,

Thanks for your interest in the iNuke amplifier series. I have to apologize for a typo on the marketing feature list of NU12000DSP.
NU12000 technically is based around 4 amplifier modules, two pairs of which are internally working in a bridge mode configuration, already.
Hence, there is no further option for bridging channels and the minimal load impedance is 4 Ohms, each. We will immediately fix the web featurelist to correctly state:
2 x 6000 Watts into 4 Ohms, 2 x 3,000 Watts into 8 Ohms

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope that makes sense to you.

Regards,

Jan Duwe
Assistant Manager Conceptual Engineering

Going by the NU6000 specs (which have been confirmed on test) this will mean 2x4400Wrms into 4 ohms and 2x2200Wrms into 8 ohms.
