    Another dead iNuke

    (edit) Ok, I'm less upset today about the iNuke dying minutes before the band hit the stage than i was when it happened. It's being sent in for warranty repair now and I have since bought ANOTHER one to have as a backup. Just can't beat the price, and with a 3 year warranty, I'll send it in as many time as I have to.

    Thought I'd leave my original frustrated post though as a reminder to those that expect a $300 6,000w amp to be as dependable as something costing WAY WAY more. Price is always an indicator of quality. Always. Here's my advice, buy 2. Then you won't worry.

    (original post) I have been defending Behringer quality to anyone with something bad to say about them. I’ve read the tales of failing iNukes and I wanted to belive mine wouldn’t. But, reality caught up with me and mine (monitor amp) died sometime between sound check and show. I’m SO disappointed. And, now I’m mixing a show with no monitors. Guess how that looks as a sound guy? This isn’t just Behringers problem! It’s now my problem, at a gig, with paying customers. I’ll get it warranty repaired, but’s it’s going on Craigslist as soon as I get it back. And what really sucks, I JUST ordered an x32 a few days ago and spent my available money on that. So, a $350 4ch Behringer will be replaced with a $1,600 4ch QSC. I absolutely can NOT have gear I can’t depend on. Argh. Argh ARGH! (read replies)

    Sorry to hear this. If I remember correctly a batch of inukes were having a bad diode installed. It wasn’t behringers fault but a supplier error.

    I’m sure that Care will fix it for you, but even then it sucks when gear fails at a gig...

    Update

    Sending the iNuke in for warranty repair. And....I bought another another one. Here's the plan. Have 2 in my rack, channels bridged so still 4 channels total. But more power to my monitors. The 6.000w rating is something like an anemic 440w/ch at 8ohm. My 800w JBLs are hungrier than that. Plus, the odds of both failing in one night are, I hope impossible. So I should always have 4 channels available if one fails. Hopefully! And, amps will ONLY fail at a gig.


    Alright Behringer. I'm giving you another chance.

    My drum monitor is Behringer. Powered 1550 on a powered 15" sub. Every drummer I mix LOVES it.
