I love this amp. Until a better, more reliable company comes out with one that sounds better than what they currently offer, I'm going to have to endorse the generic brand known as Behringer.
I own 1 roland Kc500 and a KC550 and this thing blows them out of the water. This amp is basically an affordable version of the Roland but they stepped it up with cleaner sound, beefier low end and power. Hit the sub bass enhancer and you will see what I mean. I perform and tour with modern R&B, Pop and Hip hop acts all over the World. Not all keyboard players only play rhodes or B3. In todays age, you need amps that can handle 808 samples, crisp and piercing sawtooth virtual synths patches layered with effects. The Roland and just about any other keyboard amp are made for aging lounge acts and although reliable, have had their time. This monster seems to be made to handle modern music and that is a big plus for today's muscian. The mic input I use it to monitor my vocoders. 4 stereo channels to plug in multiple synths and a macbook pro running Virtual synths. This thing just rocks. like having your own mixer controler plugged into a super phat 15" Nexo wedge.
With Behringer you get 50/50 in quality and should be bought with caution. My woofer went out on me after getting loaded into a venue the rain and had it replaced with a Peavy Scorpion 15". The scorpion made it even better sounding and is exteremly solid. Too bad Roland dont step up and work on a model that sounds like the Behringer but is as solid as a Roland.
Can't beat the Value. We are talking about sound here and in terms of what sounds better, this amp is it. crips clear, monster sound is what you get. I only wish more sound companies carried this as available backline other than the Roland. When I show up to a concert and see that the KC550 is supplied for me on stage, I cringe.

I had a Behringer KX1200 and bought this to replace the KX1200 which had been on about 400 gigs and performed faithfully.
The power rating on this amp is a WILD exaggeration. The KX1200 is rated at 120W peak, the K3000fx at 300. The KX1200 is every bit as powerful, if not more so.
Also, the sound quality from the 15" speaker isn't as realistic as the KX1200, and when compared to something like a JBL Eon15, it pales in comparison.
The final straw came when the horn became intermittent after only about 6 months of use. I play a lot of Hammond sounds, and that high end is really necessary. What's more frustrating is that it's intermittent, so it's nearly impossible to troubleshoot.
The bottom line is that this is an OK amp for the money, but so many people have had issues with the speakers or the electronics that I feel it's a real gamble to spend money on this amp. Mine is collecting dust.

300 watts is really 4 channels at 75 watts each

By Rippin' Rippon

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

An interesting way for Behringer to advertise its output power. Had to have the amp repaired (cable between the internal preamp and amp came off). When I asked the tech about the alleged 300 watt rating, he tested it and found that each of the 4 channels puts out 75 watts. To get 150 watts of power, he ran two channels of a stereo footboard into two channels of the Behringer. So technically, the amp puts out 300 watts, but you'd have to be running a single signal to all 4 channels at full volume to get 300 watts output from that single source.

rich

By richard hajewski

from MARYLAND'S EASTERN SHORE

Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

This is the second K3000FX I own. I've had the other for about three years now and I think
they are terrific.I can link them together for larger venues or use a single one when playing smaller joints. They give me the same full sound either way. I play two keyboards through them: a Ketron
SD1 and a Yamaha 9000 PRO. The horns and strings come through crisp while the organ and drum
lows can be teeth rattling. The onboard effects are a bonus adding significantly to the vocals.
I'm using this pair to replace my Peavey XR680C and XR696F amps and two 115 Intrnational HC
and two SP 2 speakers ( all with the Black Widow woofers ). I have used the Behringers in all the same places as the Peaveys and they perform every bit as well with a whole lot less weight.
I also own four EUROLIVE B215XL speakers as well as two EUROLIVE B210D Active speaker systems and I can attest that Behringer makes a very good product and stands behind their quality.
You can't beat the value!

Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

I have had great lucky with Behringer's gear. Picked this up used. Amazingly Clear Sound and it can really project. XLR input is much louder than 1/4 inches but I guess thats expected. I gigged using this as a main and an unpowered mixer for small to mid sized rooms for about a year and a half. Two piece duo band. The only complaint is the weight. If that doesnt bother you. Go for it :-)

K3000FX only last 15 months

By DLB

from PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

I play guitar and keys, and bought the K3000FX due to its 4-channel capability, and to replace carrying two separate amps. Three months after the warranty period, the K3000FX started cutting out intermittently, then quit completely in the middle of a stage performance. All lights still worked, just no sound. While it has lots of great features, its definitely not 300 ways either, as the two 120 watt amps used previously put out much more sound. I've used Behringer before and been pleased, but this amp has been a disappointment.

This amp cranks!! Frequency response is even .. lots of highs and beefy lows. Plus you can hook up a subwoofer if you really need to move air. Honestly, you get more than you pay for with this amp. NOT chintzy, NOT flimsy. It's the real deal.
Features are the same as the Roland and other's equivalent at a MUCH lower price.

    Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

    I've been using 2 of these amps for about a year for my keyboard setup, which includes internal sounds from 2 keyboards, and an additional input of midi vst instrumentation. Friends had recommended going with ElectroVoice of JBL powered speakers but I couldn't afford that. I've been very pleased with how these amps have performed. I use one as the "master" amp,and the other as slave which is connected via the stereo link feature. They are spread apart about 20 feet in our set up so the result sounds full in the audience. Perhaps EV speakers do sound better (I don't know), but honestly, to my ear, the sounds I'm getting are pure,the amp's EQ features work well, and in the context of a classic rock band, I don't need the very high end of hi fidelity to sound good- it would just be wasted $$.

      Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

      I have had this amp about six months now and I still love it. I use it in a Harp and Bowl ministry setting which is demanding and takes some finesse to get the sound right with all the different participants. It is true that the XLR input for mic is way over the top loud and when I use another mic with adapter in the 1/4 inch channel I really have to crank it up as loud as it will go. I am going to fix this with two small mixer boards though which will solve some other issues to. I need to build a wood platform with casters to get it around easily because it is heavy but any kind of equipment like this is heavy so that is my solution. I wish Behringer would just make one available so I would not have to saw it out myself. I am planning on purchasing a second one for outside concerts in the park. I am very pleased with my purchase and did tons of research before I decided to go with this system. I am glad I did.

      Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

      I have had this for about 3 years now and the only issue I have had is that the tweeter came loose from the housing and fell down inside. I was able to pull the handle off and reattach it without much trouble.This is my go to answer for a lot of situations. It makes a great keyboard amp, no doubt. But I have also used it as a PA for practice and a powered monitor for gigs while running sound for other bands.

        We use this amp for our electric drum set. In a small room, the amp does it all. For larger rooms, we line out from the amp to the PA, and the amp is used mainly for a monitor for the drummer. This amp gives great tone, and has good power. It makes our drum set sound excellent! For the price and how it sounds...it can't be beat.

          bought to use as an all in one system. vocal, guitar, keyboard. when advertised as a stereo system wrongly assumed a hookup to an additional unpowered spearker would provide stereo. THERE IS NO EXT SPEAKER JACK, UNBELIEVABLE. worse it requires hookup to another amp for stereo. whats the point? if you wanted to use 2 amps then you already have potential stereo. very disapointed because the sound with the built in tweeter gave a very good live acoustic sound, as well as vocal. would only recommend if stereo was not needed.

          Amazing Amp for the $$$

          See all my reviews

          Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

          I've been a professional keyboard player for almost 20 years, playing in 4-8 piece rock and blues bands. Like a couple of the other reviewers, I also play guitar and bass. If you play keys in a band, you need an amp! Sure, you can run through a PA along with the vocals, but when you're standing along side the guitar player's half stack, it's sometimes hard to hear yourself in the monitors! In the past 20 years, I've owned 5 other keyboard amps. The Behringer offers the most power and features in a light-weight well-built combo. I was really amazed by the quality and performance of this amp for the price. It sounds great with my keyboards, bass, and acoustic/electric guitar. I would recommend that every keyboard player use an amp rather than running though a PA, and for the price, this amp is really hard to beat!

          I had my eye on this for a few weeks at a local shop. One day, I played through it and the sound was so crisp and clear and OH MAN was it loud! I took it home that day and it has been awesome. I don't use the effects much, other than occasionally on my bands vocals. At many of our shows its our only speaker. My friends rock band borrowed it at an outside venue to boost their sound, there speakers had some problems and they ended up playing the whole show through this amp and it worked great. The only thing is that the mic input is so much louder than the rest. We play through an unpowered mixer and plug it in. problem solved. This is a great amp for us little guys. Easy to transport and the volume is just awesome!

          Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

          I bought this Amp last week and thus far, could not be happier. I bought it on the advise of a friend who's been playing for years. I use it to power a Roland V-drum electronic drumset. Although I've been playing drums for about 15 years, electronic drums are very new to me. So when it came time to buy an Amp, believe me I had no idea. A keyboard Amp is perfect. The full range of sound is spectacular. The low bass tones hit hard and deep, while the highs of the cymbals are loud and crisp. I have not gigged with the Amp yet but I can tell you this, at about 50% power, it sounds like my house is coming down. This Amp packs SERIOUS power. I'm eager to take it to a stage to see where it stands. I encourage anyone looking for a powerful, high quality Amp to consider this one.

          Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

          This amp sounds good, has just the right number of inputs and effects for what we need. Using the amp for keyboards and vocals. The EQ is a plus to tailor the sound for the room. Overall a really nice affordable amp.
          This amp is a compromise for us. We possess a half dozen amplifiers ranging from 10 watts to 400 watts. Through the years we have done some big jobs and now needed a keyboard amp and a small P.A. for smaller settings. It filled our needs and sounds great.
          We have owned it for a short time, but have used it several times and so far real good.
          This amp was the only affordable answer to our needs

          Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

          This isn't the best amp I have used for keyboard sounds, specifically organ, rhodes, piano, etc etc. But I do have to say for the price, it is an excellent value. Considering it is a little bit harder to find jobs these days, I don't mind spending less money for an amp that does a very good job. I have gigged with Roland, and Bose speakers for years, and I am just as happy with this amp. Dollar for dollar, this is the best deal while not sacrificing quality.

          Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

          I first got this amp over a year ago, and had it for only a few months before the speaker ceased to function. I sent it back and got a refurbished one, but had to pay for the very expensive shipping process. Today my speaker blew again. I do the same things with it every weekend, which is about the only time I get to use it. It's quite frustating. In conclusion, don't buy this amp. It might seem like a good deal, but you'll end up spending more trying to get it to work then you will on just getting a different amp in the first place.
