Summary: At least crown amps are honest and say they can't be bridged into 4 ohms. If you need a reliable power amp that will handle a 4 ohm bridged mode then don't buy this amp. I know alot of amps wont handle this low of a load either but at least they are honest enough to tell you the truth. It is BS that this amp is 700 watts a side into 2 ohms or 1500 into 4 ohms bridged because it is not capable of running this way.
Excerpt: We bought the extendo warranty so, in case there is an issue it will be dealt with without question or extended downtime. This is our first Behringer purchase and although we were hesitant due to it being a relatively new player vs Crown or QSC, hence the warranty purchase, this amp is in the same ball park for sound but in the cheap seats with ...
Summary: So far this amp has been used as an outboard amp to run with a Peavey Firebass (in mono mode, and as a slave amp in biamp mode), as a biamp, using a Bass Pod and a Rolls SX21 crossover, as a mono amp (again fronted by the Pod), and as a PA amplifier. Flexible enough for you? As another reviewer said, it seems to be a clone of a QSC amp (the specs are identical to the RMX1450) but for a third of the price - so I'm not complaining!
Conclusion: There are the normal signal and peak LEDs, Behringer speakon and binding post connectors, signal limiters on each channel to prevent damage and selectable low-frequency filters (30 Hz or 50 Hz) to adjust to your preference.
