Help with amp

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a recommendation from a fellow member here a while ago to buy a behringer ep2000 amp to run a sub box with 2 subs in it. I want to drive it at 8 ohms bridged. I plan on sending the signal to the amp from the sub preamp outs from
a Denon 3312 receiver.

Here are a few questions. The amps have 2 different input ports, which should i use. I know I can buy the rca to whatever adaptors, but I am a bit worried that the output signal will not be the correct voltage for the amp input, Ive seen a few people with these concerns and can't find the answer.

second, why a ep2000 and not an inuke nu3000 which seems to be made specifically to power a sub.

The help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Input 1 is used in bridge mode.

Which subs are they?

I started a new thread on this. I bought the ep2000, but I don't seem to be getting all the power to the subs. I need help. I put details in my other thread

Try the 1/4" inputs, you won't break anything.

I've used the 1/4" on my pro amp for home theater without issue.

I'd be interested to know if anyone uses xlr input for home systems. I'm not sure what the benefits would be?

I am using XLR (Balanced) connection between BFD and iNuke 6000 DSP. The cable is 10 meters long. Though I have a fair amount of noise floor seeping into iNuke, but that is not coz of the cable; but as regards the connectivity and signal transfer.....it's flawless.

The benefit is.......it has same impedence across the entire cable length between the source and the target, so you are able to transfer clean signal over longer distances.

I'm only one upgrade away from being nearly 100% XLR. I only have 3 devices that can't do XLR. Everything else in my system is XLR.

The benefits? I heard that it has near-flawless noise rejection and it is designed to be hot swappable and connects more securely.
The only other reason is that it interfaces with all pro audio equipment, so it's a natural selection.
