EP2500 lower output than EP1500?
So I got a used EP2500 off ebay today.
Set it up in place of my EP1500 which has been bridged to my 15" LMS-4000 for the last 7 years. Figured the EP2500 would sound louder and have more head room. When hooked up it sounded quiter and clipped far easier than the 1500, had to back it down to 15 to keep the light out.
I have all the Dip switches exactly the same as one another, same feed from a MIC2200 and same movie passage to test them out. The begining of Edge of Tomorrow.
EP1500 SLP meter 1 foot way 119 db Same setup with the EP2500 116 db both bridged.
Any suggestions on what I would start to look at or is it possible for a amp to put out less power due to age/use? Not sure if I should call this a defective amp or am I looking at this the wrong way?
