Behringer EPQ2000 Europower 2000W Lightweight 2-Ch Power Amp
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 .
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)
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.

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?
For bridge mode you will only want to use channel 1 input.

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.
If you look at page 20 of the Quick Start Guide you will see that this amp is Class H.

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 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.
