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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product In HOME UseThis machine is plenty BIG and FINE for a lot of applications. I'm using it for a power amplifier in a home stereo system. It seems as if the emphasis, at least in the local stores, is on "home theater" equipment which is, for the most part awful stuff. I had been running a respectable receiver for several years and was unhappy with the sound quality and quantity. I saw the EP4000 and was intrigued by the idea of big power for little money. I had a Carver M-400 for years, if this gives you an idea. Anyhow, I bought a Behringer Ultragain Pro Mic2200 which has a line pre-amp circuit as well as microphone circuits. This is a dynamic duo reminiscent of Batman and Robin. Remarkable sound. For years my friends and I said "there are some songs that you just can't play loud enough." That statement is no longer true. And, it is without distortion. What could be better?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bang for the Buck.I have had 4 EP2500s and 4 EP4000s now for a couple of years. Nothing seriously wrong with any of them for a couple of years. I had one that got dirty during a outdoor gig and the volume pot has a spot in it. That is it.They rate them at 2 ohms don't believe it. They don't like running much less than 4.They rate them in all their sales info in peak so the actual RMS value is about half of that.The inputs clip pretty fast if the gain is turned up. Keep an eye on those red clip Leds because bad things happen let it clip to much. The amps survive ok but woofers and tweeters don't always make it. Be real carefull with you gain going in and amp volume.You can see a clip every once in a while but do not be tempted to go past that level during the gig.Over all they are work horses and compare to the lower cost line of Crowns, and QSCs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good 1875 watt mono ampI got this amp to see if it had any more power than the old 2500, and it does not. I looked inside the two amps side by side and they are the same thing with different numbers. I tested the 2500 at 1840 watts rms and the new EP4000 at 1875. Both amps sounds as good as My QSC 2450 with about the same power ( The QSC tested at 2231 watts rms) and the same build quality. Though I am going to stick with My QSC ( only because I already have it installed in My theater ) I like the Berhinger for the great price to power ratio but if your using it in a home theater you will need to quiet the fans down about 80db. I like the amp but doen't like the fake 4000 watt rating. $332.99 Is a great price for a QSC quality 2000 watt amp.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from input problems clippingI have had my ep4000 for 4 months now and the left channel led clips even at low input signal. if you turn up the output it still clips. it is wired correct to 2 15" dayton 8 ohm subs, the dip switch settings i have tried several configurations and no luck. tried, xlr, rca, phono, cd player, mixer, ep-equalizer, inputs still clips at 1/4 power. did i damage the inputs? no i think the output section is well built but the input section sucks. passive.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable ValueI got the Behringer EP4000 to run a pair of Peavey PV 118's. It seems to be a perfect match. The Behringer has plenty of power to run those subs at maximum potential. With some left over if you really want to hear them scream. Looking forward to seeing if it can take the load of another pair of 18's. The EP4000's other nice feature is the selector switches on the back of the unit. They give you multiple options like low frequency filters, and limiters built in, but most importantly a selectable parallel input pass through in order to easily hook up mutiple units. (A feature slightly more expensive amps don't have.) Awesome stuff for an amp at this price level. The EP4000 is a tank. It's heavy, rugged, and seems well built. Another nice after thought is that the binding posts have a nice cover plate to protect them when using the Speakon connections. The only thing I'd upgrade on the unit is the gain knobs to a tighter more quality feel. (Also helps with accidental adjustment.) So for the price, I'd highly recommend the Behringer EP4000.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GET ER DONE!!!!I am running six(6)of the EP4000 in my rig, (4) of them run my subs. (8)Peavey B.M.X. 18'.The other two (2) run my mids & highs. (8) Peavey PV215 cabs. This amp has no prob. running my mids & highs, BUT when it trys to go lower than 60hz, it starts to fail, muddy & will heat up QUICK. ONLY ON SUBS BELOW 60hz. Put with (2) DBX dual band EQs & DBX x-over, you dont got to belive me.. I like the 4000s over my XTI-4000. By the way, no fan noise............

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Defenately worth the price!Used for several months now 1 or 2 days a week with FBQ3100 EQ and JBL JRX12 stage monitors. 2 for the front 1 in the back with a low pass sub wired in parralel, 4ohms per ch. No Problems, Output power seems more like 1000-1200 watts. I've also used it bridged to power 2 18" subs,preformed well. Ordering another now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great amp for the price...can't go wrong.So far so good. Used it at one gig. Pushed 2 Peavey Lowriders for 7 hours at 26 on the gain, stayed cool with no clipping. I'll see how it does at the next one but as of now Im very pleased with it. More then enough power! Thinking of getting another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not all that, but a good value for the moneyRunning subs, it has more power, seat of the pants about 1.5 times, as the Adcom 5802 previously tested (450 wpc or more RMS - 3 times the $) on them and is more stable (ie. does not thermal) at low ohm loads (2.7 ohm). I'd say a reliable ~1500 watts RMS 5hz to 90 hz (12dB/octave low pass) mono ~ 5.2 ohms at clipping light barely flickering on with no clip limiter or subsonic filtering. I'll probably run the 30 hz lowcut once in the dj's hands...since he blew up the cheesy fidek FPA-4002 that I'd sold him for cheap. Fan noise is not that bad outside a studio or lab. Borderline for a home, and fine on the road. Reasonable parts count and quality, I'd like to see a little more capacitance, but it runs just fine... so what do I know... sound quality is sufficient for what I'm using it for... definitely worth a look if you're on a budget.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and powerfulNice amp. Works as advertised, easy set-up/use of many configurations. Versatile, can be used for stereo, bridged mono, and dual output with one input.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EP2500 rebadged? Probably but still good.Well we know that the EP 2500 was a good amp.And I suspect this is the exact same amp under a different name and missleading specs.I have only had this amp a short time so far. So I haven't been able to put it through it's paces just yet. I will be using it at a reception that will be House and Jungle for the most part and lasting 7-8 hours coming up on the 8th of Aug. At some point I will alsotake it a part and see just what quality of parts are used on the inside. As is it feels solid and sounds clean.The fan noise everyone talks about is lower than my Crown XLS amps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behringer Euro Power AmplifiersAmplifier performs to specification; the only negitive feedback would be the horrendous fan noise.Not suitable for the lab.
