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 Behringer Europower EPQ450 Power Amp accepts balanced XLR, have Mono On/Off and Bridge On/Off switches.
Accelerated Transient Response (ATR)
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 parts of the circuitry, Behringer 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.
Instead of operating relatively continuously like most power amps, the Behringer Europower EPQ450 power amp features rail tracking for effectively modulating the power supply rails with only the peaks of the input signal. 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, the Behringer Europower EPQ450 Power Amp design provides more dynamic punch and, because they are so much more efficient, run cooler and don't require huge, heavy heat sinks.
