    Sorry Darren. I can't help much, since I use all Carvin amps and speakers.

    The iNuke 2ch 6000 specs at 1,600 @ 8ohms. I saw a guy on YT do a horsepower test of the inuke, and while the 4ch should be rated at 1,500w per channel, it real world tested at about 1,200w. So I'm guessing that a bridged 4ch which should be the same as a 2 ch 6000 which rates 1,600w might fall in the 1,300w range. Plenty more than I need.

    While I could find no videos of anyone bridging this amp, and couldn't get CARE on the phone just to make sure I was doing it correctly, I did find another forum where a guy had a question about it and got it worked out. Same question I had. The manual talks about bi-amping, but not bridging. Guessing I did it right, an A/B comparison between a PRX400 hooked to a single channel compared to a bridged channel was significant in volume, fullness and just richness of tone. I could have bought the 2ch 6000 and not the nu4 6000 for the same results, but this setup offers me 4 kick butt channels with two bridged inuke nu4-6000's or 4 "regular" channels when one fails. And, I have little confidence that one wont fail in a year or two. Sorry Behringer, just sayin.

    Question for guys that know..

    Need to know before I do any damage. I'm bridging channels on my 2 NU4-6000's to get more power to my 8ohm monitors. I've been given conflicting information. Is the output now 4ohms, meaning I can not connect two 8ohm wedges, bringing it down to 2 ohms and damaging the amp?

    This may be a bit late, but I'm bridging 2 channels on a NU4-6000 to drive a subwoofer at 4 ohm (2x8ohm in parallel). Works without a problem and gets pretty loud. I never did any power measurements though.
    True, the 'manual' is a joke, and there is no example for bridge-mode in it. But you can find the power ratings for bridged-mode in the specs on p.24 and the amp has a switch and a wiring-scheme for bridge-mode on its backpanel,
    This has been good enough for me to just give it a try.
