Summary: I have two of these amps and they perform flawlessly. I use these bridged at 4 ohms to drive two 1000 watt 18 inch subs, each. I like that you can program, from the back panel, the filters, output controls and tailor how these perform under different circumstances. I have always used Peavey amps in the past and they are bulletproof. I hope that these Behringer amps hold up as well. Two years and counting with no problems.
Excerpt: It is frustrating to see a breaker on an amp which indicates the maximum power draw is less than 1800W, yet the manufacturer advertises 4 ohms bridged load at 2400W RMS. Simple thermodynamics will tell you this amp must be well under 1000W. I used it to attempt to drive one and then two buttkickers, with very poor results. I didn't have balanced inputs, but I did follow wiring directions for unbalanced input.
Summary: This is a beast on my 18in Behringer sub im a drummer with a 10 mic setup i have a ep4000 for sub ep4000 for my mains & a ep2500 for my montors.Behringer is a good brand i have no beef with them,they cost less & are just as good
Excerpt: I already own two EP2500's, so it was no surprise that the EP4000 was all of that and more. I run a couple of Peavey 18" bass bins wired in series with the amp in bridged mono mode. Built like a tank, quiet, with plenty of power and headroom to spare. This was a perfect addition to my rig. I would also like to note that they changed the color from the 2500's, the new case is a dark charcoal gray, not black like the originals.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent construction, Excellent Sound, Great Value, Powerful
Excerpt: I was surprised by the performance and quality of the EP 4000. I have used Crowns, QSC, and Peavey in the past. I purchased this for under $400 and was skeptical. The reviews for the EP4000 were all positive, but I was determined not to be swayed by the reviews. The amp weighs over 50lbs, that means that it is made for heavy duty use. When I powered it up, it was quiet -no humming- and provided ample power for the 15in JBL cabinets and crystal clear.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Good Warmth, Powerful
Excerpt: I have used a variety of amps-Crown,QSC, and Peavey-over the years, and I am impressed with punch the EP 4000 delivers for the money. It is quiet and the sound is clear. It weighs over 50lbs, but it is heavy duty and reliable. Put it through the test for two weeks straight and it has not failed. I will be buying another EP 4000 soon.
