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.

Comments about Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Keyboard Amp/PA System:

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.
