Power your passive PA speaker system for a affordable price with Behringer's full-featured EP4000 Stereo Power Amplifier. Delivering a staggering 4,000 watts into four ohms bridged, the powerful EP4000 amp translates tight, punchy bass beats through the speakers exactly as they're intended, utilizing Behringer's exclusive Accelerated Transient Response technology to react instantly to fast low-frequency peaks. Built with an impact-resistant, all-steel 2U rackmount chassis, the EP4000 has a back-to-front ventilation system and high-current toroidal transformer for independent DC and thermal overload protection on both channels.

Front Control Panel:

- independent gain dials for each stereo channel
- power switch
- ventilation panels
- power, signal and clip LEDs

Back Control Panel:

- turn the clip limiter on or off
- adjust the low-cut filter
- set to stereo or bridge (mono) mode
- link to additional amps with parallel mode

Clean, Professional Design

Simply take a look at the front panel of the Behringer EP4000 amplifier to see why it's one of the best values on the market. Behringer kept the design simple with a power switch, detented gain dials for each of the stereo channels, and ventilation slots to keep your amp cool even when it's pushing 4,000 watts. As you would expect from any pro power amp, the EP4000 has green power LEDs to let you know when the amp is warmed up and ready to go, as well as signal and clip LEDs to help you monitor performance and keep your PA system's gain structure under control.

Flexible Limiter, Low-Cut Filter, and More

On your EP4000's back panel, you'll find an on/off switch for an important safety feature: the power amp's defeatable clip limiter. When it's engaged, this limiter will automatically duck the level on the incoming audio signal to prevent clipping, distortion, and speaker damage on output. You'll also find a flexible low-cut filter designed to cut the sludgy low-end frequencies that your speakers can't faithfully reproduce. For example, you may set your low-cut filter at 30 Hz or 50 Hz if you're pushing floor monitors or a pair of full-range boxes -- or simply turn the low-cut filter off if you're using your EP4000 to power, say, a large subwoofer. The back panel also includes controls for setting your amp to run in bridged mono or stereo mode, as well as controls to daisy-chain EP4000 amps in parallel mode.

High-End Components Under the Hood

For their EP-series amps, Behringer uses reliable Toshiba/Fairchild power transistors in a rugged steel 2-space enclosure. The EP4000 also features a high-current toroidal transformer, ideal for fast transient response. To ensure a long life of reliable performance, this high-powered amplfier features a front-to-back cooling system with an exhaust fan located on the back of the amp. The fan draws air in through the front slots, across the internal components, and out the back, pulling the heat along with it. Even under heavy 2-ohm loads, the EP4000 is designed to stay cool.

Features:

- Stereo power amplifier delivers 2 x 2,000 watts into a 2-Ohms load; 2 x 1,400 watts into a 4-Ohm load, and 4,000 watts into a 4-Ohm load in bridge mode
- Behringer's exclusive Accelerated Transient Response technology for tighter, punchier low end
- Defeatable limiters on each channel ensure maximum output level and overload protection
- Selectable 30 Hz/50 Hz low-cut filters remove muddy, potentially speaker-damaging frequencies
- Precise detented gain knobs, plus Power, Signal and Clip LEDs for each channel
- Inputs accept XLR and 1/4" TRS sources
- Professional Speakon and binding post ouput connectors
- DC and thermal overload protection automatically protects amplifier and speakers on each channel independently
- "Back-to-front" ventilation system, including air filter
- Rugged steel 2U rackmount chassis

Serious Power for Your Dollar

Budget-conscious shoppers know that Behringer Europower amps deliver serious power per dollar. At this price-to-wattage ratio, powering your whole venue system with Behringer is a no-brainer. And with high-performance features like Accelerated Transient Reponse, flexible low-cut filters and defeatable automatic limiting, this power amp is perfect for performance venues of any kind. If you have passive speaker boxes to push, the 4,000-watt Behringer EP4000 stereo power amplifier is simply an excellent value.

Product Description

The EP4000 represents everything musicians love about Behringer's popular EP1500/EP2500: excellent sound quality, road-worthy toughness and reliability, low-noise operation and incredible power. With 4,000 watts of power, the EP4000 amplifiers is perfect for medium-sized club gigs, mobile PA systems, church services or public spaces.

Everything You Need, Nothing You Don't

The uber-simple front panel controls of these amps give you all of your sound's vital signs at a glance. After flipping the Main switch, 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.

Panel Discussion

A panel of switches found on the back panel offers an array of cool options to apply to both channels of the EP4000. The Clip Limiter lets you get even more out of the amplifier without overdriving either it or your speaker system. Built-in circuitry automatically senses when the EP4000 is being overdriven into "clipping" and then momentarily reduces the input level to avoid clipping distortion. This all happens in a few thousandths of a second, so it's an inaudible way of avoiding audible clipping distortion. Of course, you can turn the Limiter off if you're feeling lucky.

Ultra-low frequency sounds (infrasonics) are caused by rickety stage vibrations, mic thumps and wind noise. While technically inaudible, they can cause a huge drain on amp power, potential damage to your speakers and a sludgy sound in the audible bass ranges. Both EP models feature a defeatable Low Cut Filter that chops off unwanted frequencies below 50Hz or 30Hz (depending on your PA system's capabilities).

The same panel contains the switches that allow you to put these amps to work in either stereo or bridge (mono) mode. The EP4000 can be linked to additional power amps by switching into parallel mode.

These Amps Have Guts

There are plenty of awesome features on the outside of the EP4000, but there's also a team of cool components on the inside helping it work its magic. They come loaded with famously reliable Toshiba/Fairchild power transistors as well as a high-current toroidal transformer for ultra-high transient response and further reliability. Independent DC and thermal overload protection on each channel automatically protects the amplifier and speakers from any show-stopping meltdowns. There's no need for fuses, giving you one fewer potential mid-gig headache.

The EP4000 has both XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs. Even the outputs are totally flexible, consisting of Speakon-compatible outputs and five-way binding posts. Whether you're dealing with bare wire or boutique audiophile cabling, the EP4000 is right at home.

The exhaust fan, visible on the back panel, is the final stage of an internal back-to-front cooling system that keeps these amps working in the mild temperatures they love, even through periods of extended use. Finally, an impact-resistant, all-steel 2U rackmount chassis helps these workhorses stand up to all the rigors of the road.

Accelerated Transient Response Delivers the Knock-Out Punch

It takes huge pulses of energy (current and voltage) to propel a woofer cone out fast enough to match a bass beat. That's called Transient Response, and it's the holy grail of amp designers. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary circuitry, this amp is 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.

The Legend Powers On

If you read the reviews of the EP4000's older brothers, it's clear that those amps are renowned not only for their performance and durability, but also their astoundingly low price tags. The EP4000 extends that legacy to the next level. Why shell out for a "Brand-X" amp when you can get a Behringer Europower amp and have money left over for other gear?
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (80 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Definately out performed my expectations!!!"
Sound: I am really pleased with the performance of this Behringer Amp! I am powering two Carvin LSx2153's. (The power rating of the LSx2153's is 800prog/1600peak - manual states 800cont/1600prog/3200peak)and the sound is really clean with the BEH EP 4000. The cabinets are "true three way" series, and the EP 4000 does an excellent job. I tested the unit at 40% with the clip limiter on, and the low cut filter on set at 30Hz. The EP 4000 does exactly as it was designed to do! Feature: The "built in" accessories are the clip limiters, and the low cut filters. They perform as expected. Great job Behringer! Ease of Use: The dip switch diagram is printed on the back panel of the EP 4000 for easy reference. The manual included with the EP 4000 does an excellent job explaining the multiple scenarios of how to utilize the settings of the dip switches. (I had this amp up and running within 30 minutes out of the box!) Quality: The quality is great! The BEH EP4000 is built solid! Cosmeticly, it has the design of any other professional amplifier. One down side is that this unit is HEAVY! You definately are gonna want a rolling rack, or portable rack and have someone help share the load in weight, or safety purposes. (It is not EXTREMELY heavy, but heavy enough to warrant proper handling...) Value: The current price is set just right for the BEH EP 4000, in that if you are looking for an affordable AMP is plenty of power, you definately can not go wrong with the BEH EP 4000! (just between you and I, I have it on good authority that a competitors AMP rated at 7000 watt - 3500 per channel peak [priced at $799] has not performed as anticipated. This was shared with me by a fellow musician that purchased their unit new two weeks ago) Manufacturer Support: I don't have a rating as far as "support" because the BEH EP 4000 perfomed great right out of the box. The Wow Factor: I own it, and highly recommend the Behringer EP 4000 for anyone looking for an affordable "beginner" amp. Definately worth a try. I'm glad I did. Overall: I have used other professional equipment, and in my opinion, the BEH EP 4000 is a great, afforable and alternative investment to the higher priced AMPs that we sometimes want right NOW but don't always have the funds for them. I plan to add two more LSx2153's to complete an small system for smaller gigs, and DJ work. I too was leary at first, but for the price, the BEH EP 4000 is a smart investment.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This is a Behringer?...No Way!!!"
Sound: The sound of this amp is incredible. Now that Behringer is using Toshiba parts I'll bet this will stand the test of time. The manual and the amp itself is self explanatory. IF you don't carry around your manual the back of the amp tells you all the settings. Feature: I'll reiterate one thing the previous reviewer said...This thing is HEAVY..IT will take 2 people to carry this thing especially in a rack unless your rack is on wheels. I'm a decently strong guy and I was surprised how heavy this thing is...It is built like a Tank though so it will be durable.. Ease of Use: Manual and the back of the amp are very explanatory. All the settings are shown on the back of the amp for reference. Quality: Much more durable than Crown and QSC IMO. And I have used or owned both...On the other hand I think Behringer likes to fudge a little on ratings and sometimes what they say the ratings for on their products are slightly lower. Value: C'mon for the money you will be amazed at the quality and performance of this amp. I know most people snub Behringer products and in most cases rightfully so but they are moving in the right direction and you can't go wrong with this or any of their power amps. Manufacturer Support: I don't know about the support I haven't had to use it. The Wow Factor: this thing is HEAVY.....not sexy at all....But the power is beyond Sexy... Overall: This is my only power amp now so I shouldn't have to buy another power unless this one dies. IT has more than enough power to need another amp.
