Excerpt: Key thing: keep the gain knobs at 100%. Somebody else said you get the nasty distortion only in the 50-80% range, I think that's optimistic. At full gain, it's clean, though there's a slight amount of hiss. Can't expect perfection in a power amp this cheap, I guess.
Summary: I bought my Behringer A500 used at a local music store. My existing home subwoofer amp was acting up, so I needed something quick. Since the receiver handles the basic crossover functions, this amp is very simple to set up and use. I don't have to "work around" a complicated subwoofer amp crossover.
Excerpt: I use this product to push two Polk Audio DB 10s in 8 ohm bridge mode with the crossover (Not Included) set at 80 hertz. Beautiful sound with plenty of headroom. The amplifier is built well with no noticable weaknesses. Plenty of hook-ups.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Versatile

Excerpt: I own two which are bridged running my stereo speakers from a pre amp, a close friend has 5 all bridged running his home theater set through a yamaha reciever and it sounds great. So my better than the yamaha amp, much more dynamic. Honestly for $200 it's a good piece of gear.
Excerpt: I think your store would be wise to cite the review from The Audio Critic on line magazine. They tested this amp and gave it a good review based on performance for the money. Their comments were that for the price it was an excellent value even if it did not produce the rated wattage of 160wpc at...
Summary: Bra alternativ för mindre samlingslokaler. Steget är praktiskt taget knäpptyst = bra om det monteras i själva lokalen. Bra med inmatningsalternativ (tele/XLR/RCA). Möjligen är effektangivelsen väl optimistisk.
Summary: Habe die Behringer-Endstufe nun schon seit einigen Monaten in Benutzung. Viele sagen ja dem Behringer-Equipment nach dass es nur billiger Elektroschrott aus China sei. Trotzdem finde ich es dann bemerkenswert was Behringer zu einem fairen Preis aus dem Produkt herausholt.
