A few more pics. Some have PM'd about the fan and mods. It has the original but should be an easy swap. The fan on the epq series runs left to right in these pics.

Good luck with the sale - this is a good price and a solid set of amps. I can't believe some DIY'er hasn't scooped these up!

Thanks. Can't wait to see how your amp GTG results.

How will these do in terms of powering a CHT 18.1 subwoofer?

If powering a sub I'd pass on the EPQ series. These are better for mains, surrounds, or monitors. For subs look at Behringer EP series or Cerwin Vega amps IMO. Some really like the Behringer iNuke's also.

Sorry about that with AVS and new account users.

Last TWO amps pending payment at this time. I'll post back if falls through.

Does anyone know how much input voltage from the preamp this amp requires to make full power? Also is the fan always running, or does it turn on only when it reaches a set temperature?

I was driving them off a Yamaha V867 receiver rca pre outs. When setting up the gain structure and test distortion I noted. At +3.5 on receiver master volume with a 1kHz -0dB continuous tone. Where distortion is detected and clipped it measured 4.30Vac input voltage. Any further than this the amps shut off.

Fans run most of the time even at idle. They do have a speed sensor though and ramp up a lot if pushed continuous. Example; a real busy movie action scene full volume, or 30min loud music. They never run hot though so I like the factory fans. Can take a beating.

Thanks, good info. Do you know What the minimum input voltage is?. I would be running it straight from my yamaha cd player with output control.

I believe my yamaha cd 755 puts out 2.0v I'm wanting to use the Behringer to bi-amp my polk audio rtia9's. I have a modded dynaco st70 pushing the mids and highs, but this speakers are powerhungry!! and have (3) 7 in woofers per speaker That are used for the sub frequencies. This are 90 db sensitive speakers, and the current kenwood integrated amp can't push them to sound tightly. do you think this amp will improve the punch and tightness I'm looking for. I'm new in the audio world and I rather ask questions to learn than to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to try to figure things Out. Thanks.

I honestly don't know if you'd be able to drive the amp with 2Vac and be happy with amount of output. Most Behringer amps you could use for bi-amping, and most have a built in crossovers to split the CH1 and CH2. Models like the epq/epx have a simple switch on the back for 100Hz split. Some other models have fully variable frequency.

3x 7" woofers per speaker; I would say depends on power handling they are rated for, and at what impedance load on the amp. Personally I'd always overbuy on power and dial it back some. As it was mentioned in the amp LCR thread; more power seems to have more cone control. Just watch thermal limits biggrin.gif

I'm driving SHO10's and they handle quite a bit more. The delta10a driver is no small 10" rated around 350Rms, so I feel comfortable with a bit more on it. Most speakers will handle more than rated if it's unclipped clean power.
