More power without all the weight.

This supercharged workhorse of an amplifier packs a heart-stopping 1700 watts of output power into a lightweight package, thanks to Behringer’s Accelerated Transient Response (ATR) technology. Designed for the working musician, the KM1700 is built rugged enough for life on the road and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

By utilizing transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of its circuitry, the KM1700 is able to react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. That means your audience will hear a tighter, crisper, more natural sound.

Instead of operating relatively continuously like most power amps, the KM1700 features 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.

The front panel controls and indicators on the KM1700 provide your system’s vital signs at a glance. After pressing the power button, the power LED lights to show the amp is ready for action. All channels feature positive-detent gain controls with signal LEDs that light when a signal is present, as well as clip LEDs that alert to reduce the input signal.

The amp’s rear panel is home to the balanced XLR and ¼ in. TRS, plus unbalanced ¼ in. TS connections. Take your pick of professional locking speaker outputs or touch-proof binding posts to securely connect speakers. The same panel contains the switches that put the KM1700 in mono, stereo (two channel mode) or mono bridge mode. Flick the limiter on/off switch to activate the built-in overload protection.

    Comments about Behringer KM1700 Professional 1700-Watt Stereo Power Amplifier with ATR:

    I use this product to give some boost in my listening environment. Outside of the fan noise, I am really impressed with the amp. It runs so cool! I have been wanting to buy an amp for quite a few years now and this one really fits the bill. No hiccups, clean sound, and no excessive heat to speak of. I'm not really pushing this amp, but I'm sure it will perform if I pull it for such an application. Placing this amp in a cabinet will probably eliminate the fan noise, especially if the cabinet is acoustically treated. It keeps the 5-star rating because the fan noise can be controlled. I have already experimented with acoustic treatment and had some satisfactory results.
