I've currently got an EP2500 operating in stereo mode powering my main speakers, and while this is enough power for them, I plan on building a subwoofer soon.


I plan on building the subwoofer with 2 Elemental designs 18" woofers, in a around a 20 cubic foot EBS tuned enclosure.


My brother has 1 Elemental designs 18" in a 5 cuft sealed enclosure that is also powered by an EP2500 bridged mono into 4ohms.


The EP2500 seems to be just enough power for 1 of the eD 18" (note that the driver is not subjected to full power for a high duty cycle).


So I figured that an EP4000 would probably be good for 2 18" eD's. However, I have heard rumours that the Ep4000 is just a rebadged Ep2500.


The Ep2500 more or less puts out pretty close to its rated power. Has anyone measured the Ep400 to see if it does the same?

Pics are online of the new EP 4000 and also the EP 2500 guts. They use the same number of output devices, the torroidal transformer is the same. It doesn't weigh any more than the older one.


Not really rocket science to deduce it's new lipstick on the outside.

Plus the 4000 manual states its RMS is 2400 watts which is what the 2500 was rated at.
