Hi there,


Not sure if this has been asked before but has the EP2500 been tested against an EP4000 in terms off rms power and distortion for 2, 4 and 8 ohms stereo and 4 and 8 ohms bridged.


I would be interested to see how they compare.


cheers

They are the same amp. 4000 is a rebadged 2500.

Nathan,


that doesn't surprise me at all. What I would like to know is why call it an EP4000 if its the same as an EP2500. What does the 4000 mean because it is not 4000 watts as they state in their manual. Does this mean the 2500 is 2500 watts. What a laugh.


Its a shame they have not come up with a more powerful 2 ohm stereo amp.


cheers

Its all about marketing, why sell something with 2500watts when you can say it is 4000watts, lol. They are a great value though and if they could make something with twice the power for even twice the price, it would still be a good value.

Nathan,


Defo on that one for sure. I noticed that the EP2500's manual states it is measured with a 0.1% THD rating where as the EP4000 is 1% THD. So if the EP2500 was measured at 1% THD would it be roughly the same as the EP4000 then.


cheers

Wow! I never noticed before but the listed power output from the ep2500 manual is actually right on the dot. I would have never....

Good point matey. I wonder how it is actually measured then. Maybe a quick email to behringer to confirm.

4000 watts is 33 amps at 120v and that would be at 100% efficiency.

Seems like an aggressive spec for a 120v appliance.

Hi all, don't want to high-jack. planning on getting either the EP2500 or Ep4000. Just wondering if these will work for the inputs on the EP2500?


Thanks in advanced.

I use something similar (mine is angled) with my ep2500 and it works just fine.
