Default Power amp for Danley TH-221 subwoofer

The Danley TH221 subwoofer can handle about 6000 watts program material with a 3000 watt continuous rating.
What power amp is suitable for this sub. Is a Behringer nu6000 DSP sufficient or are there other alternatives which will work better.
Thanks.

nu6000 DSP is not sufficient you should look at least for CROWN Xti 6002 and higher others company models

Qsc rmx are great sub amps. The 5050 should work well. It's pricey thou.
Are you sure you need that much power? That subwoofer is pretty efficient.
A rmx 2450 puts out 2400watts into 2 2 ohm loads. (1200watts each 2 ohm load) And a used 2450 can be had pretty cheap. Or even 2 2450's bridged to provide 2400 each driver in the TH221.

Make sure to learn about damping factors and all specs to an amp that are important when trying to achieve tight deep bass under 50 hz. I have 2 of the th221s on a pl380 each. Right off the bat it's not enough power and the poor specs are quite noticible when compared to let's say a powersoft of equal wattage

here is a link of a powertest between amps.
and take a look at these amps .the xd 2x3650@ 4ohm or the 3phase20k 2x7500@4ohm ,20kw bridged@ 4ohm
powersoft are also verry releable
both got good demping factors.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions and information.
We decided to go in for a Crown amp. Some of the reasons have nothing to do with performance ! One of them was ease of getting it here and another was reliability. Of course others would be reliable too but most people involved in this purchase seemed to know Crown and hence decided on it.

It's going to be a while for the Danleys and the amp to land up. Most likely the amp will arrive first.
Cheers.
