Okay everyone...here I go again. Before I make my final decision to purchase something, I focus all of my energy on researching that particular product, as opposed to the various contenders in general. Further research on the Behringer EPQ series (or Behringer in general) reveals that no one likes this brand? Is Behringer the red headed step amp of the pro AV world?
I decided to build the rack that will house my amps instead of buying one for $500. I suppose I could apply the difference on "better" amps, if the Crowns I am about to mention are that. What if I did the following substitutes:
Crown XLS-602 (1x1200w@8ohm) instead of Behringer EPQ2000 (1x1400w@8ohm)
Crown XLS-602 (2x600w@4ohm) instead of Behringer EPQ1200 (2x425w@4ohm)
Crown XLS-602 (1x900w@8ohm) instead of Behringer EPQ1200 (1x850w@8ohm)
The Crowns do not have RCA inputs, but then I suppose I could use something like these cables to do the trick?
Update: According to Crown's website, those models are all discontinued. Man I'd hate to go back to the drawing board.
