OVERVIEW

Deliver a knockout punch of sound in this lightweight professional amplifier.

Behringer's EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp line is built for the working musician. It's much easier to transport than a conventional AB power amp, it packs ample power, it's got a built-in crossover and limiter, and it's built to last through all the rigors of the road. Plus its affordability will leave you with enough cash left over to acquire more music gear to amplify!

The simple front panel controls the Behringer EUROPOWER EXP2000 amp and gives you all of your sound's vital signs at a glance. After pressing the Power Button, the POWER LED will light when the amp is ready for action. Both channels have independent gain dials as well as clip LEDs that indicate when the signal is distorted and you need to reduce the gain. There are also SIGNAL LEDs that light up when a signal is present at the input.

The EPX series' INPUTs accept balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS, and unbalanced 1/4" TS and RCA connections. Take your pick of professional locking speaker outputs or touch-proof binding posts to securely connect speakers.

A panel of switches found on the back of this Behringer power amp offers an array of cool options applicable to both channels. The Clip Limiter lets you get even more out of the amplifier without overdriving either it or your speaker system. Built-in circuitry automatically senses when the power amp is being overdriven into "clipping" and then momentarily reduces the input level to avoid clipping distortion.

The same panel contains the switches that allow you to put these amps to work in either mono, stereo (two-channel mode) or bridge mode, which is always in mono. A built-in CROSSOVER switch lets you select the point at which highs and lows are separated (CH1<100Hz / CH2>100 Hz or FULLRANGE).

Power amps have always been heavy, mainly because of the massive transformers and huge banks of capacitors needed for high-power operation. In fact, six conventional power amps in a rack can easily top 250 pounds. The same number of EPX Series amps come in at just under 134 lbs./61 kg, and they pack all the power of their conventional counterparts. The secret to the Behringer EUROPOWER EPX series' incredible power-to-weight ratio is their use of a switching-mode power supply combined with Class-H topology. Switching-mode power supplies work on demand. Instead of constantly working at full power and dissipating excess power as heat, they only ramp up the power output when needed—thousands of times per second. Considerably more efficient than traditional power supplies, switching-mode power supplies are small and light, yet deliver ample power.

Think of a Class H power amp as a car with two engines (in amps, you call them "rails"). One engine runs all the time. The other runs only when musical peaks demand extra power output. An EPX Class H amp only generates a fraction more power than is immediately needed while the output stage operates at its maximum efficiency all the time. And just like in today's hybrid cars, the efficiency of this dual system is far greater than having one engine or rail that must operate all the time. EUROPOWER EPX2000 amps don't waste power. Class H amps don't waste power, require much smaller heat sinks and much lighter power transformers.

It takes huge pulses of energy (current and voltage) to propel a woofer cone out fast enough to match a bass beat. That's called Transient Response and it's the holy grail of amp designers. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of the circuitry, the EPX2000 amps are able to react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. If the woofers in your PA system can keep up, your audience will hear a tighter, crisper, more natural sound.

Instead of operating relatively continuously like Class AB circuits, Class H amps, which were first described in NASA technology (U.S. patent 3,319,175), feature rail tracking for effectively modulating the power supply rails with only the peaks of the input signal. This technology has revolutionized pro audio amp designs with its outstanding performance and efficiency. When combined with switching-mode power supplies that replace heavy toroid transformers, Behringer's designs provide more dynamic punch and, because they are so much more efficient, run cooler and don't require huge, heavy heat sinks.

Behringer didn't invent Class H technology, but its R&D Department has been working for years to perfect its own version, creating lightweight amps that run cool and also achieve its goal of Accelerated Transient Response.

    Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp:

    Originally was going to buy a QSC gx5 which I already have one. Purchased this only because it was on sale for a killer price, about 1/2 the cost of the amp I was going to buy. Received it and racked it up side by side and was amazed. Immediately bought a 2nd unit as the price was too good to pass up. As far as the quality, as I was directly comparing to the QSC, (Physically) it is about double the depth and weight, the face plate astheitcs are very similar, solid construction. Sound, running standard stereo mode, it totally keeps pace with the QSC. Very fast response and very punchy. A real value even if its not on sale. Would I buy it again? well I did! 1 drawback. no 1/4 inch output. only bannana, terminal, and speakon. Yes some people still use the 1/4" connectors.

    Bought two of this for our new church and is more than enough. They stay cool all the time and the lighting meters are cool. I am using one for the monitors and the other one for our mains. This power amp are extremely good and the price is even better.

      Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp:

      Even though I like that "D Class" amps are very light, they don't sound as full and warm as the heavier "A/B class" amps. This is an "H class amp", which is not as light weight as a "D Class" amp, but which sounds as rich as my old "A/B Micro Tech at 1/3 the weight. Buy one...Buy one...Buy one

        Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp:

        Bought this for live sound applications. Runs our mains (Cerwin Vega INT252's). Great for the small bar venues we play. Lots of headroom, clear, clean power. We run vocals and guitars through it, handles all well without clipping. Options are good, especially the built-in cross-over. 1st unit delivered did not work, however MF had it replaced for me within 7 days after I shipped the broken one back to them. For the price, this unit is a great value if you are looking at powering small mains or floor monitors.

          Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp:

          I didn't want to spend a ton of money to update my DJ equipment so the team at Musician's Friend suggested I look at the Behringer line due to price and quality. It may not be a Crown but I am not disappointed. I purchased a EPX2000 and am using it to push a pair of Electro Voice 3-ways. Great sound and plenty of headroom with this unit. I also purchased an EXP3000 to power my Peavey 18' subs. Both amps are working flawlessly. I am impressed.

          Just got mine delivered sopme days ago. Really light weight and more power than you'll ever need and these animals stay super-cool. I am tired of all carrying around all the old amps and I will get two more of the Behringer's to replace more of my heavy stuff. Clearly recommended.

          Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER EPX2000 Stereo Power Amp:

          I just got two of them and they exceed my expectations by far. Really powerful, and tight bass. And the best it is about half the weight of a traditional amp. I like the crossover that's built in so you can use it for subwoofer operation.Hey and it's cool looking for white and blue led's. Love this amps:-)
