Product Details

Behringer EP4000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 1400W

The EP4000 is the latest evolution of Behringer's popular EP1500/EP2500 power amplifiers, which represent great sound, road toughness, and extreme value. The new EP4000 is perfect for larger-sized club gigs, mobile PA systems, church services, or public spaces. Thanks to Behringer's attention to audio fidelity, the EP4000 is also suitable for the demands of serious home audio and home theater installations.

Specifications: • Output power (20 Hz-20 kHz @ 0.1% THD, both channels driven) per channel stereo mode: 550 watts RMS @ 8Ω, 950 watts RMS @ 4Ω, 1,250 watts @ 2Ω • Output power (1% THD, sine wave) bridged mono mode: 1,750 watts RMS @ 8Ω, 2,400 watts RMS @ 4Ω • Output power (peak power) bridged mode: 2,800 watts @ 8Ω, 4,000 watts @ 4Ω • Weight: 36.6 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 EP4000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 1400W
Behringer EP4000 Europower Power Amplifier 2 x 1400W is rated 4.15 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but works...I bought this unit even though there was a 3 week back-order identified by PE before my purchase; however, it showed-up at my door within a week. Always nice to have a company exceed your expectations.The amp itself is solidly built, performs well, but the fan is pretty noisy (no surprise there) and it lacks more advanced features (an auto-off or a 12V trigger would be nice) but for the money it's hard to beat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not the same sound as QSC 1450I own the QSC 1450 and I owned this as well. The EP4000 is indeed a carbon copy of the QSC 1450. They look identical inside. I used these to power home theater towers. I put a fan controller on both units to reduce the noise.First off, the behringer does not sound as good as the QSC. I really like the bass definition under beats better with the QSC.Secondly, the behringer suddenly stopped workind after a week. My towers are 300W of 8 ohm load, and I never even push them. That load should be a piece of cake for the EP. I know what you are going to say - it is because I reduced the speed of the fan and hence the coolung. No. The amp was ice cold when it stopped working. it never got hot with my towers, never even warm, to be honest. I don't know if i just got a bad unit.This guys is twice cheaper and more powerful than the QSC though, so I will probably give behringer another shot in the future, but I was disapointed with the sound and durability of this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Subwoofer Amplifier for Cost/PerformanceI own 4 of these units in my touring system; they are pushing 4 Yamaha CW218 Subwoofer cabinets. IMHO, these are very well suited for subwoofer use - when wired correctly. Subwoofers best perform when wired for 16-8 ohms; not 4-2 ohms. This typically requires more power from the amplifier; however, with the increased damping factor (associated with the higher resistance load), the subwoofers stay very "punchy" - even at high levels.I have tried these amps pushing Mid/High cabinets; but I was not "knocked out" by the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from plenty of power, great priceI just recently purchased this amp and have only had two occasions to use it, but it surpasses th amp that it replaced and was about $250 less than what I owned before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great value, power ratings exaggerated..At one point i had 4 of these amplifiers with the intend to power 4 Dayton audio 18" classic sub woofers, with the amplifier bridged, which is supposed to be "4,000 watts @ 4Ω" and it was clipping like no tomorrow, all four amplifiers were tested and had the same out come. Needless to say i was very dissapointed. Not to say this isnt a good amplifier, its just not good in a situation were sub woofers are involved. They're great for mids and highs, not lows. I ended up selling all four and purchased a crown xls 5000, i was much more satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the MoneyOk so I am embaressed to say I got sucked into 4000 watt (Fairytale) power specification. My Nady 2400 died in my Pro Audiu rig and I needed something quick and cost effective. I ordered this and got in a few days. When I got it I quickly realized that it is not a 4000 watt amp. It is more like a 2000 watt RMS amp. But it has been road tough, I've been abusing this one for close to 2 years with no issues. So kudos to the Behringer marketing people! Hind sight the EPX3000 for $30 more would be a better deal and will be my next amp purchase.

Looking for an amp to power a JL Audio 12w7 custom built subwoofer.  Will This amp be stable at 3 ohms

Asked by: Crouton
This will handle a 3 ohm load in stereo mode but not bridged mode.
Answered by: MattP

is this amp to large for a pair of peavy pv115 15" 2-way pa speakers

Asked by: BIG JEWL
Depends on the wattage of the speakers. Any amp will operate any speaker but matching the wattage will prevent you from having to buy new speakers when you turn the amp up too loud and blow them. Or if they are fused keep replacing the fuses. Or put in larger fuses than called for in which case you will blow the speakers. How many watts are the Yamaha speakers should be your fist look see then get an amp that will match the output of the speakers and they'll last a long time
