Since Behringer already makes some of the best-sounding audio mixers, amplifiers and loudspeakers on the planet, it should come as no surprise that the EPA900 provides far superior sound quality than other products in this class. The two satellite speakers feature custom-designed 10" woofers and 1.35" aluminum-diaphragm compression drivers for incredible fidelity and clarity you might not expect from a loudspeaker system this small!
The new EPA900 sets up in less than five minutes and delivers articulate, high-fidelity performance. With its twin 450 watt amplifiers and custom-designed, 2-way loudspeakers, the EPA900 can fill a medium-to large-sized room or project your voice for an incredible distance outdoors. All the accessories you'll need are provided (including a microphone, mic and speaker cables) in a convenient, easy to transport and set up package—and the good news is you don't have to be a sound engineer to run it!
Channels 1 – 4 feature our high-quality Invisible Mic Preamps (IMP), which have been praised for their transparency and headroom. A Level control is provided with a Clip LED, so you can dial in the perfect signal level. We've also provided a Pad switch for those occasions when you have to contend with "hotter" than normal input levels.
+48 Phantom Power
Phantom Power is also available, so you can use studio-grade condenser mics. Overall system response is handled by a 7-band stereo graphic EQ, and our proprietary FBQ Feedback Detection System helps you track and eliminate those annoying mic squeals.
Additionally, each input channel has a two-band EQ (Bass and Treble), Balance (allowing you to place the signal wherever you want within the stereo image) and an Effects level control. It is important to note that while many of our competitors only provide a reverb switch, the EPA900 features an FX level control per channel with 100 state-of-the-art 24-bit digital FX to choose from. FX can be turned off/on via any standard footswitch (not included).
The Sweet Sound of Reverb, or Delay, or...
If you're making a speech, chances are you won't need it, but if you're playing a musical instrument and/or singing, you might want to add some effects. So, we've included a 24-bit stereo FX processor with 100 great-sounding presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and various multi-effects to sweeten your performance. And if you want to sing along with pre-recorded tapes or CDs, the EPA900’s Voice Canceller function can remove virtually all the vocals from music played back through channels 7/8 with the simple flick of a switch.
It's All About Connections
The EPA900 comes ready for your input, literally. Channels 1-4 accept balanced XLR mics, as well as balanced and unbalanced 1/4" line-level sources, such as electronic keyboards and the like. Stereo channels 5/6 and 7/8 accommodate RCA and 1/4" inputs, such as drum machines, keyboard sound modules, etc. All in all, there are enough mic and line-level inputs to handle a small band, and the RCA Tape Out connectors provide the perfect connections for recording your performance.
A Bonus Channel?
Want to play some of your favorite tunes at the company picnic? The EPA900 comes equipped with a 1/8" stereo minijack for connecting an MP3 player. Additionally, the Stereo Aux In section features Left and Right 1/4" jacks for connecting even more professional audio sources. You don't even have to give up a channel, just control the volume from the player. It's like getting 10 channels for the price of eight!
Everything You Need
The EPA900 is a complete system. Just use the built-in wheels to roll it from the car to the stage, set the main unit on a tabletop and deploy the speakers. Connect the high-quality dynamic microphone and hit the power switch—voilá, instant PA system! There is even an onboard storage compartment for the included microphone, accessories and cables. And if you need to add some serious bottom-end to your system, just connect an active subwoofer to the handy Sub Out jack.
