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.





Ah, the power of gossip!

EP4000

2 x 2,000 Watts into 2 Ohms; 2 x 1,400 Watts into 4 Ohms; 4,000 Watts into 4 Ohms (bridge mode)
Weight 36.6 lbs

EP2500

2 x 1,200 Watts into 2 Ohms; 2 x 750 Watts into 4 Ohms; 2,400 Watts into 4 Ohms bridged operation

The EP4000 figures are "peak" power, according to the manual.

4000 watts at full clip, both channels failing? Laughing


Why would a regional sound company(looking to get into touring?) want to own Behringer anyway...? Rolling Eyes

Well ill give anything a shot and if they dont work ill just sellem to some local band or put them on my rental system..I was possably gonna use them on a monitor rig. i use the gps 2600 now. Im just saying for a lot of the guys out their its a deal at 387.00. and they may serve well as a spare. Very Happy . the thing is ive seen alot of is.. People shun on the cheaper products. My company, i started it with the peavey sp siries cabs and the old 3 space cs 800. Oh yeah and a mark 4 mixer.  Rolling Eyes

Aww come on guys! It has "ATR (Accelerated Transient Response) Technology"
Haha! Actually I have been using a bridged EP2500 for nearly 5 years now to run my Buttkicker, it holds up. I would imagine it would be fairly noisy in most FOH applications, but it works fine for what I use it for. Not a big deal if it craps out, I would still have my IEM's in.

Rock on,
James

Jack,
Methinks you are pushing too hard on that $387 price as your justification - judging from your words in this last post, as well as your first. I'm just curious WHY..
I used high quality amps when I worked for others starting out. I went out on my own, I bought cheapo's and had to baby them.. and suffered the consequences for such. I moved back up the chain.. and never looked back. The quality, reliability, and integrity of the "expensive" units simply spoke volumes for NOT ever buying the cheap-off-the-block econo-units again.
Think about it. IF they're selling these at your "low price".. and obviously are putting these out the door for a fraction of the selling price.. what is THEIR cost to produce? We have no way of knowing that tradeoffs in components, sheetmetal, assembly, and test weren't made that affect overall quality.. and this is a unit that hasn't been out in the field for a long time (data sheet perhaps copied from the other model.. and specs not yet altered.. as unit is too new?).. and we all know that any new product release has a chance for errors.
While it's "probably" safe to use it on monitors, I sure don't like it when I get musos, producers, and managers screaming at me in the middle of a show.. because the monitor went down.
Like the EP-2500, only time will tell.. Rolling Eyes
