Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd let you know about a deal on the Behringer EP4000. From what I've read, it used to be $300 quite often but seems to stick around $379 now. Anyways, I found it listed on eBay from Unique Squared for $299 with a "Make Offer" option. I looked around and found some people here that had success with them in the past so I sent an offer of $265 which they countered with $279 and I accepted. Shipping included. eek.gifbiggrin.gif

Here's a link to the auction at $299 with the "Make Offer" option: EP4000 eBay Link

I haven't received mine yet but UPS tracking shows it arriving tomorrow.

I bought a inuke 3000 dsp from same seller for 280. Works fine.

$279 shipping included, that’s a great price. Congrats!

I was going to make a post about this too, good catch.
I can't buy one anyways, being Canadian kills the deal frown.gif

Niagara Falls, super close actually lol. I had the majority of the parts for my 4pi's done this way.
I think I'm good for now though, picked up a second Ep4000 last week so I've got two and a Inuke3000, lots of ampage, hahah.

Same. I picked up an EP4000 last year from amazon for $279, and grabbed the iNuke3000DSP just a few weeks ago for $275. Trying to decide which to keep to drive a couple of sealed SI 18's. Probably the iNuke because it's lighter and has the DSP.

How much noisier do you find the I over the E. I have a vid saved showing the dB reading of the I, but no correlation to the E.

both EP4000 and iNuke need the fan swap, no way around it if in same room as listening.

for the ebay thing is that thru authorized dealer with same warranty?

Yeah I have had a EP for many years but I’m wondering just how much noisier is the inuke? 25% possibly?

if you plan on fan modding the warrenty is kind of a moot point

I haven't had them up side-by-side - still finishing out the basement so nothing is installed yet. If I remember I'll do some A/B comparisons when things are all done.

If you're building sealed 18 subs keep in mind that the iNuke's FR starts rolling off just below 20Hz from the reports I've read. If you want to go lower you will have to get the EP4000 or the EPX4000 which rolloff around 5Hz. The drawback would be that you would need to get an external DSP.

"If you're building sealed 18 subs keep in mind that the iNuke's FR starts rolling off just below 20Hz from the reports I've read."

who is spreading that mis-information?

It arrived today and everything looks like it should. I didn't realize how heavy this sucker is. I ordered the supplies to do the fan mod and I should be able to keep the warranty because the glue that normally has to be cut off came off with the fan plug when I pulled on it. I ordered some connector "samples" from TE Connectors to solder to the fan wires to plug to the header. If I need warranty support, I should be able to put the old fan back on and give it a little heat to flow the glue back on a little...

Now I just need build a sub or two to test it out. :-)

Good deal, thanks for posting. I have a few buddies waiting to find a deal on a new EP, this should do the trick.

NathanJ 10-29-2013 05:19 AM

Thanks. I ended up getting an iNuke 3000dSP for best offer of 250. One can never have too many amps...

I got it for $240...biggrin.gif

Now if I could only find an iNuke 6000 at a similar deal...smile.gif

you guys are saving me some $$!
I'm building a 12" ported sub, and the iNuke 3000dSP would be perfect for that one and a second one to boot!
This is in a family room, so I was leaning towards a plate amp for self contained sub vs having some gear laying around....
I'll decide shortly before these deals go away.

One of the iNuke 3000dSP can do the job of two Dayton Audio SPA500 500W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier, plus the iNuke has DSP....almost sold on saving $200+ by using the iNuke......

Ding, I just placed an "make offer" in, there are 4 left, hopefully mine will be accepted.

Do the iNuke series and EP series use the same replacement fans? What fans are you guys using?

I'm using a noctua fan that was 18$ in my 3000 dsp. Works great and never hear it.

Which one? Is it an 80 mm 12 vdc computer case fan? What does it need for CFMs to provide adequate cooling?

Ep4000 is 24volt, Inuke's are 12volt

I tried a low to mid 20's CFM for my 6000 and it is going into protect mode...I have ordered a couple of fans in the high 30's CFM and will try them tomorrow.

I will report back....smile.gif

In another Thread someone mentioned that you want cfm of at least 30. My noctua has 32 I think.
