Product Details

Behringer EP2000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 750W

The new Behringer EP2000 Europower Amplifier is perfect for medium-sized club gigs, mobile PA systems, church services, or public spaces where tough, reliable, low-noise power production is needed. The Behringer EP2000 features precise power, signal, and clip LEDs to monitor performance at a glance while the XLR and 1/4" TRS input connectors provide flexibility and compatibility with any source. Special "touch-proof" binding posts allow worry-free disconnection even under a load.

Specifications: • Output power (20 Hz-20 kHz @ 0.1% THD, both channels driven) per channel stereo mode: 350 watts RMS @ 8Ω, 500 watts RMS @ 4Ω, 650 watts @ 2Ω • Output power (1% THD, sine wave) bridged mono mode: 1,000 watts RMS @ 8Ω, 1,300 watts RMS @ 4Ω • Output power (peak power) bridged mode: 1,500 watts @ 8Ω, 2,000 watts @ 4Ω • Weight: 34.6 lbs. • Mains voltage/Breaker: 100~120V, 50/60 Hz, 15A • Dimensions: 3.5" H x 19" W x 15.8" D.

Everything you need, nothing you don't

The über-simple front panel controls of these amps give you all of your sound's vital signs at a glance. After flipping the MAIN switch, the POWER LED will light when the amp is ready for action. Both channels have independent gain dials as well as clip LEDs that indicate when the signal is distorted and you need to reduce the gain. There are also SIGNAL LEDs that light up when a signal is present at the input.

Panel discussion

A panel of switches found on the back panel offers an array of cool options to apply to both channels of the EP2000 and EP4000. The Clip Limiter lets you get even more out of the amplifier without overdriving either it or your speaker system. Built-in circuitry automatically senses when the EP2000 or EP4000 is being overdriven into "clipping" and then momentarily reduces the input level to avoid clipping distortion. This all happens in a few thousandths of a second, so it's an inaudible way of avoiding audible clipping distortion. Of course, you can turn the Limiter off if you're feeling lucky.

Ultra-low frequency sounds (infrasonics) are caused by rickety stage vibrations, mic thumps and wind noise. While technically inaudible, they can cause a huge drain on amp power, potential damage to your speakers and a sludgy sound in the audible bass ranges. Both EP models feature a defeatable Low Cut Filter that chops off unwanted frequencies below 50 Hz or 30 Hz (depending on your PA system's capabilities).

The same panel contains the switches that allow you to put these amps to work in either stereo or bridge (mono) mode. Both the EP2000 and EP4000 can be linked to additional power amps by switching into parallel mode.

These amps have guts

There's plenty of awesome features on the outside of the EP2000 and EP4000, but there's also a team of cool components on the inside helping it work its magic. They come loaded with famously reliable Toshiba/Fairchild power transistors as well as a high-current toroidal transformer for ultra-high transient response and further reliability. Independent DC and thermal overload protection on each channel automatically protects the amplifier and speakers from any show-stopping meltdowns. There's no need for fuses, giving you one fewer potential mid-gig headache.

The EP2000 and EP4000 have both XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs. Even the outputs are totally flexible, consisting of Speakon-compatible outputs and five-way binding posts. Whether you're dealing with bare wire or boutique audiophile cabling, the EP2000 and EP4000 are right at home.

The exhaust fan, visible on the back panel, is the final stage of an internal front-to-back cooling system that keeps these amps working in the mild temperatures they love, even through periods of extended use. Finally, an impact-resistant, all-steel 2U rackmount chassis helps these workhorses stand up to all the rigors of the road.

The legend powers on

If you read the reviews of the EP2000 and EP4000's older brothers, the EP1500 and EP2500, and it's clear that those amps are renowned not only for their performance and durability, but also their astoundingly low price tags. The EP2000 and EP4000 are built to carry on that tradition, but with even more power. Why shell out for a "Brand-X" amp when you can get a BEHRINGER EUROPOWER amp and have money left over for other gear?

Behringer EP2000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 750W
Behringer EP2000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 750W is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT AMP!I wanted to share my experience with the Beringer EP2000 amp after 40-Hr’s of burn in. I will be comparing the EP2000 against my Cinanova Earthquake amps. I currently use 6-Earthquake channels in a 5.1 setup and I recently made some changes in the way my speakers are wired and needed two additional channels, in walks the EP2000. All my speakers are down near 2-Ohms so the EP2000 was my first choice considering the price.I compared the two amps in a stereo setup with all digital processing by-passed just the volume control in my Rotel processor and using my Rotel CD player, both 6-years old.Speakers are my own design/ build using 6-Dayton RSS265HF 10” subs, 3-per channel, two B&G 40” planers and two Aurum Cantus G2Si ribbon tweeters, one each per channel.To my amazement the EP2000 is almost as warm sounding as the Earthquakes, a bit more brighter and forward. Symbols were not quite as well defined and as for the lower end the bass not quite as deep. Overall the EP2000 is just not as warm sounding.Please take note I am being very, very critical with many hr’s of going back and forth between the two listening to everything from Telarc’s 1812 canon shots, jazz, Rush, female pop singers and a host of others. I must make note my Wife could not hear the difference between the two amps!!I will be using the EP2000 in my rear speakers on DVD sound tracks only so the slight difference between the two amps is undetectable and I do mean “slight”.This is really a great amp and when you consider the price Wow! I would not hesitate to buy another if it were not for the loud fan, folks it is loud. This prevents me from using the amp in my everyday low level listening but since DVD sound tracks are playback loud anyway this playback level does drown out the fan. The EP2000 runs very cool until you turn up the volume and driving 1.8 Ohms it gets really hot. I never have been able to find the amps power limits.Hope this helps others make a decision.Ray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good ValueThis amplifier performs well. It is quite heavy and requires mounting plates front and rear if rack mounted. The one objectionable feature is the cooling fan. It is loud. When the amplifier is operating at higher output levels, the fan is no issue, but during quiet passages or when there is no input signal, the loud fan is overpowering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great woofer amplifierIve recently finished a 4 way crossed over system, bottom 3 active, tweeter passive. Each active speaker designed for clarity and flat responce(sealed Qtc 0.707). Im driving two Peerless sls 12 inch stereo crossed at 120-140 and the responce is accurate and uncolored. Pauls bass on Abby Road was if he was in my living room. I know this is not possible without an excellent speaker design.. but you need an amp to provide the signal! For 300 bucks what more do you need. Spend a thousand for a subwoofer amp, and it will look nice and deliver half the power/headroom. The only down side of pro amps like this is the fan. IF you listen at low levels, separate the amps to another room or sound absorbent screen in front of the amps. I listen at moderate volume in a large room and may here the fan between tracks-so what.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for older amps.Zion Lutheran Church bought this amp to replace a 10 year old PA amp that failed during a Sunday service. Repairs were estimated to be $250.00 plus shipping costs. The Behringer was cheaper to buy and had twice the power of the old Crown amp.It fit directly into our cabinet and the connectors were the same. We had it in place and working within 20 minutes. A great amp at a great price.

What additional items needed for home audio subwoofer use ?

If this pro amplifier was to be used for an A/V sub project (2 12" sub enclosures. 500W rms drivers) what other items would be needed ? I've read that a LPF and signal booster might be needed due to receiver's low sub out volumes. (Marantz SR 6007) Is this the case ?Would this source of amplification be better for sound quality and reliability than using 2 plate amps ?
Asked by: Bird Brain
Generally all that is needed are RCA to XLR or 1/4" adapters to make the connection to the receiver. You shouldn't have a problem with output levels with a Marantz but it is hard to say for sure. I generally recommend some form of EQ with a setup like this and a quick easy option for that would be the Behringer FBQ1000 Feedback Destroyer. This would not only greatly improve response in the room but will also help with overall gain structuring if the output from your receiver is too low.

I have a set of Polk Audio SDA-SRS's that require the amp to be common ground. I'm looking at this unit as a replacement for an old Carver TFM-55

ground. I know that most modern amps are, just making sure that this one is. I need to replace a Carver TFM-55 that just bit the dust after MANY years of trouble free use. Thanks!
Asked by: matadoor
As a note from Polk: "If you're using separate mono amplifiers (or an amplifier) without a common ground, Polk's AI-1 interface is available separately to ensure a proper connection." The Behringer is an excellent sound reinforcement amp. Your Carver had brilliant circuitry that was liquid smooth like tubes with the solid punch and definition of transistors. Bob knew how to design amps!!! The Behringer is of a different design, sound and usage. Do take a look at the AudioSource AMP310. Another amp that is a great match would be a used Hafler.
