Given that Peavey is essentially selling these to gain market share and not to make money (I have some inside info), I wonder what corners Behringer cut to be able to sell them cheaper.
Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!
This is what I'm concerned with. Noah mentioned in the Peavey thread that they made some sort of adjustment (changed a component) to reduce the impact of the roll-off below 20hz.
So if Berry is copying the Peavey, not sure if they'd have made this same adjustment as of yet.
Would be nice to know when the Peavey's are coming out with the 6k unit.
I'll let someone else be the Guinea Pig on this...
An audiophile likes to talk about how much they spent and how good it sounds.
A DIY'er likes to talk about how little they spent and how good it sounds.
There are other things they will not figure out that will yield inferior results. I fully expect Beheringer to put out another lame attempt at a copy. If typical, theirs will not have safety agency approval nor comply with FCC part 15 or EMC Directives.

A couple of years ago, Behringer imported a number of products into the USA without the requisite FCC certification. After ignoring repeated requests to provide documentation and/or come into compliance, they were hit with a $1,000,000 fine. Not appealable. They're a bit more cautious nowadays.
It seams its now available over the pond here-
What a tease... You!
It's not in stock
It's also $550 USD, that's not cheap.
So its basically half the advertised values. Chuck measured the ep4k(2500 at the time) and got 2kw out of of the amp.
The rolloff keeps me away from this at the time.
-didnt notice the 'not in stock' note- damn!! got all excited at the prospect of getting somthing before you lot for once!
$550 is cheap for us!! I find gbp to usd is 1:1 when buying electronic goods- so if you pay $500 for an amp over there, we usually pay £500 (approx 40% more!)
we need to grow our population or somthing to increase our buying power methinks....sucks!
I guess that was my point though. Its not rms so the values can be taken at half.
The roll off on the ipr and possibly the i-nuke make me wonder why these high watt amps would be good for sub duty
Looks like they are still a ways off.
