Big power, small price!
Musicians ask a lot of their power amps. Do your work, take the abuse I give you, stay cool, keep quiet, and don't give me any problems. Oh, and how about some more power? You ask, and the Europower EP2500 answers. With two 1200-Watt channels into a punishing 2 ohm load, or 2400 Watts bridged mono at 4 ohms, this beast packs enough power for the big gigs with a musical clarity and richness not normally found in a power amp at this price point.

Rock-solid reliability
Whether you're pushing the mix out to the mains, driving stage monitors, or powering a subwoofer, you can't afford to have the power amp quit on you in he middle of a gig. Behringer's high-quality components and rock-solid engineering set your mind at ease when it comes to reliability. They select only the best transistors from Toshiba and Fairchild Semiconductor for dependable performance. A beefy, high-current toroidal transformer provides low-noise power with tons of headroom for clean tone, even at high volumes. What's more, the EP2500 meets ISO9000 standards, assuring years of trouble-free use in high-stress situations. Drop it in your rack and forget about it. The power will be there whenever you need it.

Improved cooling system
When you're rocking at full volume, your power amp is getting a workout. It will build up some serious heat, so you need plenty of ventilation to keep things running smoothly. Behringer's special "back-to-front" ventilation system pulls air across internal read more components and out of the housing, simultaneously dissipating heat and improving air-flow. A variable speed fan automatically adjusts RPM's based on power load, and an integrated air filter helps keep the interior components dust-free. Jam as hard and as long as you want; the EP2500 keeps its cool under pressure.

Features and connectivity
Europower amps boast many features designed for ease of use and seamless integration into your live sound system. Independent limiters on each channel protect against distortion, while clip- and level-LED's help you monitor the amp's performance. Independent, per-channel, circuitry protects both the amp and your speakers from heat and DC-power overloads. If there's too much rumble, cut low frequencies at 30Hz or 50Hz with the selectable filters. This will clean up the bottom end and focus the mix for better clarity. Balanced XLR and 1/4 in. TRS inputs, plus professional Speakon and touch-free binding post outputs allow for quick and easy insertion into any signal path. This amp is capable of running in multiple modes for flexible use in a permanent installation or a road rig. Run the mains in stereo, bring the mix to the musicians with parallel monitors, or shake the whole room with all that power mono-bridged to a sub. However you use it, you'll have the power and reliability to get you through the most demanding gigs with no hiccups.

Overall.... a 10 for sure. You just can't pick these things apart for what they sell em' for! If you are on the fence and thinking about buying one, or more of these... Do it.
I bought 2 of these to power my folded horn home theatre subs. I run them in bridged mode, and they really pack a huge punch. The sound is excellent, or at least I couldn't imagine it being any better. These things rattle my room like you wouldn't believe. Guests are always in awe. I think my neighbors hate me, and they aren't very close.
Just Raw Power. Easy to configure to your needs.
Ease of Use
Couldn't get any simpler.
Very well built. No excuses.
You just can't beat the value. I could have spent a whole lot more on amplifiers, and almost did. I don't regret buying a pair of these bad boys.
