Behringer EP4000 Power Amplifier
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.

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.
