2 x 700 Watts Power Amplifier
The EP1500 is an extremely musical power amp that can take a whole night's worth of abuse without missing a beat -- even at 2 ohms! The Europower EP1500 is a dependable workhorse that will never let you down.

You get enough real-world Watts to get you through the roughest gigs: 2 x 700 Watts into 2 ohms, or 1,400 watts into 4 ohms bridged mono operation. Experience has probably taught you that there is nothing worse than when your amp runs out of breath. With Europower, you've got your back covered all the way.

From the deepest bass all the way up to the most subtle highs, you will be amazed at the clarity and richness of sound. This kind of multi-faceted performance was previously possible only with amps costing hundreds more.

The Europower EP1500 meets the needs of professional musicians, for both installed applications or on the road. No corners were cut in the design process. You can rest assured that these are tough, reliable amps built to last and last. After all, you have come to expect nothing less from Behringer.

Each Europower has a massive power supply with a low-noise toroidal transformer and lots of headroom, so your music sounds great -- even when you push the amp to the limit -- and it stays that way! Add an extremely effective cooling system and you have an amp that is guaranteed to be trouble-free.

Further underscoring a serious commitment to excellence, Behringer uses only high-quality, high-speed Fairchild(R) and Toshiba(R) read more transistors that are second to none. As with all Behringer products, the Europower Series is manufactured in accordance with the ISO9000 certified management and manufacturing system, resulting in a high-quality product that will survive years of the toughest use.
