What makes Behringer's EPQ450 Europower amplifiers unique is its Accelerated Transient Response technology. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of our circuitry, our amps are able to 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.
This lightweight amplifier features rail tracking for effectively modulating the power supply rails with only the peaks of the input signal, instead of operating relatively continuously like most power amps. 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.
Behringer didn't invent this technology, but the R&D Department has been working for years to perfect this version, creating lightweight amps that run cool and also achieve our goal of Accelerated Transient Response.
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. The back panel of the EPQ450 accepts balanced XLR. The EPQ450 has MONO On/Off and BRIDGE On/Off switches.
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.
