Behringer EPQ2000 Europower 2000W Lightweight 2-Ch Power Amp
Does this amplifier have a cooling fan ?
Yes, it does.

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

Can you tell me what class this amp is, the iNuke's are D class, this will determine if I buy this amp or the iNuke 3000, thanks.
Here is what Behringer writes about the product: "In a Class of Their OwnThe secret to the EPX Series’ incredible power-to-weight ratio is the use of a switch-mode power supply combined with Class-H topology. Because they work on demand, instead of operating continuously at full power, switch-mode power supplies are much more efficient than traditional power supplies. And since they don’t require the massive transformers and heat sinks typically found in conventional power amps, they are significantly smaller and lighter, yet still deliver ample power.Think of a Class-H amp as being similar to a car with two engines (in amps, we call them “rails”). One engine runs all the time. The other runs only when musical peaks demand the extra power output. An EPX Class-H amp only generates a fraction more power than is immediately needed, while the output stage operates at its maximum efficiency all the time. And just like in today’s hybrid cars, the efficiency of this dual system is far greater than having just one engine or rail that has to operate continuously.Accelerated Transient Response Delivers the Knockout PunchIt takes huge pulses of energy (current and voltage) to propel a woofer cone out fast enough to match a bass beat. That’s called Transient Response and it’s the holy grail of amp designers. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of our circuitry, EPX amps can react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. If the woofers in your PA system can keep up, your audience will hear a tighter, crisper, more natural sound.BEHRINGER didn’t invent Class-H technology, but our R&D Department has been working for years to perfect our own version, creating lightweight amps that run cool and achieve our goal of Accelerated Transient Response."

"2 x 1,000 Watts into 4 Ohms; 2 x 600 Watts into 8 Ohms" Is that Peak or RMS?
The RMS power ratings are listed just prior to the peak power ratings in this item's description: 500w @ 8 ohms, 700w @ 4 ohms.

Can I use this to power a folded horn sub and standard sub at the same time????
The Integra receiver I am using has an LFE output. I noticed the back of this amp doesn't have an input or output like this. Can I somehow hook this to my subs??
Sure. Yes you can.

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)
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.
