BEHRINGER EP-4000????
« on: March 05, 2009, 12:48:51 am »

OK.Some of you guys are probaly gonna ream me out for this. I just ordered 4 of the EP4000's. Hear me out. With the way the economy is going i thought i would try these on my monitor rig. the worst case is ill get rid of them and re-house the GPS 2600 i currently use. But at the price i gotem for was awsome $387.00 each. Not bad for 4000 watts of power.(IF THATS WHAT THEY WILL PRODUCE Confused )

Has anyone ever used this brand before??? And if so how did they hold up and were they a good clear amp.
What is the life of the amp B4 u trash it..

Mon section is  32 CHANNEL ALLEN HEATH
               6 GPS 2600
               6 DBX EQ
               6 DBX COMP/LIMIT/GATE
              16 QW MON
               1 QW 118 (BASS CAB FOR DRUM FILL)

I was reading about these on another forum and they pointed out that the specs for the EP4000 are the same as the EP2500. They just added a new peak power rating to the spec sheet.

I'm suprised that you bought all "4", instead of giving "1" a thorough exam (I'm a good Monday AM quarterback) Very Happy . The website indicates that the amp gives 2400 watts RMS & 4000 peak. I like the fact that they show both ratings so that you can match your speakers more accurately.

I dislike the resale value of Behringer products, but I know people who have had good success with their amps. I just bought a used QSC 2450 off Ebay & didn't have a chance to use it on a gig until AFTER the complaint/refund period. One of the channels was shot, so I guess I could have done better with a new Behringer. Who knows. Let us know how it works out.

One of the bands I work with bought a used  EP2500 4 years ago. They use it bridged to drive a 4ohm sub load. They work about 2-3 times a month. It's been fine.

I had occasion to open it up when cleaning out their amp rack. The inside construction looked pretty good - being as it's a QSC clone, not surprising.

 Laughing  Dude, you bought behringer!



But seriously, I've seen many bands flog them for a while with no major problems. You should be alright, but I gotta say, a used name brand anything has more resale value than a NIB B-ringer.

Just to rub it in a little more, last year I bought (all used) 2 Carver PT-1800's, 2 PT-2400's, and 2 QSC 1602's mounted in 2 racks all for 1700 bucks. The deals are out there if you look for them. And I was able to test all of these amps out before buying.

Granted the racks are beat to hell, but whaddya want for that price! Laughing

It doesn't even list its power at 8ohms.

Plus I bet those things weigh a ton.

With the price that used PLX's are going for I can't imagine spending money on one of these.

Oh well someone has to bail out the Chinese economy.
