Product Details

Behringer EPQ2000 Europower 2000W Lightweight 2-Ch Power Amp

The EPQ Series power amplifiers pack the power of Accelerated Transient Response (ATR) technology into an exceptionally lightweight package. Ample power and high-tech efficiency combine to give you a feather-light supercharged workhorse that will keep your rig kicking for years to come. Instead of operating relatively continuously like most power amps, the EPQ power amps feature rail tracking for effectively modulating the power supply rails with only the peaks of the input signal. This technology has revolutionized pro audio amp designs with its outstanding performance and efficiency. When combined with switching-mode power supplies that do away with heavy toroid transformers, our new designs provide more dynamic punch and, because they are so much more efficient, run cooler and don't require huge, heavy heat sinks.

Everything You Need
The simple front panel controls of these amps give you all of your sound's vital signs at a glance. After pressing the Power Button, 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.

On the back panels of the EPQ2000 and EPQ1200, the INPUTs accept balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS, and unbalanced 1/4" TS and RCA connections. Take your pick of professional locking speaker outputs or touch-proof binding posts to securely connect speakers. The same panel contains the switches that allow you to put these amps to work in either mono, stereo (two channel mode) or mono bridge mode. A built-in CROSSOVER switch allow you to send low frequency content to subwoofers and other sound reinforcement speakers (CH1 < 100 Hz / CH2 > 100 Hz or FULL RANGE). Flick the LIMITER ON/OFF switch to activate the built-in overload protection, or turn it off if you're feeling lucky.

The back panels of the EPQ304, EPQ450 and EPQ900 accept balanced XLR. The EPQ450 and EPQ900 have MONO On/Off and BRIDGE On/Off switches. The EPQ304 has an MONO On/Off switch for Inputs 1 AND 2, and another MONO On/Off switch for Inputs 3 and 4.


Behringer's new EPQ power amps are built for the working musician. They are exceptionally light, they pack massive power and they are built to last through all the rigors of the road. Plus its light price tag will leave you with enough cash left over to acquire more stuff to amplify! Check out the EPQ series and find out why Behringer power amps are among the most popular on Earth.

Behringer EPQ2000 Europower 2000W Lightweight 2-Ch Power Amp
Behringer EPQ2000 Europower 2000W Lightweight 2-Ch Power Amp is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-Built AmpI mounted this amp on top of an all-in-one system using a pair of 4ohm, 15", 200watt woofers. The maximum output of this amp is a little too optimistic because I'm able to max out the volume without hearing any distress from the woofers. But that's okay because anything more would be overkill. The build quality is outstanding, i'm sure this amp will last for years under normal operating conditions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean powerful and lightAmp works perfectly for the mobile sound system we installed it in. I gave it 4 stars because it will not drive a 4 ohm bridged load. I have used it briefly bridged in 4 ohm and it does fine but I did not push it hard at all. The amp is very quiet and clean I have used it full range and driving subs and it does great either way. If you do not need to drive a massive 4 ohm load this amp is hard to beat, also it is light as a feather and easy on the Amp load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boom for the buckThis is my 2nd amp EPQ2000. My first one I've had over a year. This new one is to replace my heavier 40lb Samson Amp. I love the lighter weight, and the features. Crossover functions, and love the multi xlr/1/4/rca connections. Very verstile and lighter than a lot of other amps of the same size. Great strong powerful amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid Performance, Light as air Price!I bought this to power two 15" Dayton Ultimax subs and it works wonderful. It has many features that allow for multiple connections which make it very flexible to incorporate in your living room or for dj use. It has ALOT of power, no worry though, the gain is adjustable for sensitivity matching. I would definitely recommend this amp to anyone and everyone. For the price, it does its job and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect amp but annoying fan noiseI added this amp to drive a stereo pair of 18" JBL subs in a home theater with audio also used for music listening. I have been using it for a few weeks. The power and fidelity of this amp are great, especially considering its low price.Other reviewers mention annoying fan noise, but the operating manual states that the fan is "continuously variable speed". This gave me false hope that, at low power or short bursts of high power, the amp would operate cool enough to avoid cooling fan noise.Although the amp does run cool, the fan runs continuously at high speed, even when the amp is cold. The noise level is similar to a loud computer cooling fan, and it easily exceeds the noise from the cooling fan of my video projector.My recommendation is for the manufacturer to add temperature control to the cooling fan. The high efficiency and cool operation of this amplifier would allow safe operation with minimum cooling at low power. With temperature control, the cooling fan could run silently at low average power such as needed for pro-audio or home theater applications.Unfortunately, I did not observe any changes in fan speed to demonstrate that it really is "continuously variable speed". Suggestions to reduce fan noise are welcome.

Crossover selection for home audio subwoofer use

I was looking for some clarification regarding the crossover settings on this amp. I am going to use this amp with a ART CLEANBoxPro Stereo Balanced/Unbalanced Converter in conjunction with a Marantz A/V receiver to run 2 x 12" subwofers.I think the way I understand the crossover settings on this amp , I should use the 2nd setting for " full range" as the A/V receiver will do the bass management and set the crossover range. Using the LFE/Sub out from the A/V stereo and connecting to the ART line converter will only send the low frequencies to the amp. Is this correct ?I believe the 1st setting for the crossover on this amp is used for only low frequencies but is only sent to one channel. if I am using 2 channels for 2 different subwoofers , then I believe one of the subs will receive high frequencies and the other low. My thinking is this may not give even/balanced frequency signals to both subs.I'm probably not making much sense. Simply wondering what setting you think the crossover should be set to and why.Thanks in advance for any help/insight .
Asked by: Bird Brain
You are on the right track. Just connect the sub out from your receiver to the input of this amp. Leave the crossover switch set to full range; your receiver's LFE channel will act as the crossover, sending only the low frequencies to this amp. Whether you run the amp mono, stereo, or bridged does not matter much. If you run the amp bridged, the load needs to be 8 Ohms or more.You may not need the ART balun since this amp has an unbalanced input that you could connect directly to your receiver's sub out. However, if you are driving a long cable from your receiver to this sub amp, the balanced line might be worthwhile. I'd try the unbalanced line first, and if you get too much hum, try switching to a balanced line to see if that gets rid of the hum.

Does the Behringer EPQ2000 require a line converter for home A/V use ?

Does the Behringer EPQ2000 require the use of a balanced / unbalanced line converter for use with a home audio / video receiver and the connection of subwoofers using sub outs/LFE connections.I see this amp has the RCA inputs but I am wondering if this input signal will be boosed to optimize the amps power and receiver's signal or does the signal from the A/V receiver require boost and/or balancing through the use of a line converter ? ( ie. ART CLEANBoxPro Stereo Balanced/Unbalanced Converter or Rolls MB15b ProMatch Balanced/Unbalanced Converter)
Asked by: Bird Brain
I think you will be fine driving this amp directly through its RCA connectors. I looked at the specs for this amp and it does not list input sensitivity, which is a bit odd, but it would be silly to design an amp with RCA inputs that could not be driven to full power with consumer type gear.As long as your cables are shorter than about 3 meters, I would just use the RCA inputs. If those inputs don't work well, because of hum or insufficient output level, you can always add a balun.

Bridged hookup

Did not find in the manual pdf.For a subwoofer:Hook the speaker (Min 8 ohm) to CH1+ and CH2+ and set the switch to "Bridge".Question:Do you use channel one input or both channel 1 and 2? I was thinking channel 1 only to take advantage of the crossover.Is this correct?
Asked by: DCinAZ
For bridge mode you will only want to use channel 1 input.

Low impedance loads

Will this amp drive a speaker as low as one ohm?
Asked by: Jordon Gerber
NO. These amps are more for pro audio and will not be able to handle anything less than a 4 ohm load.
