It doesn't actually put out that much power. Also from what I have heard the epx series doesn't work as well as the ep series. Those amps put out around 800 per channel at 2 ohms even tho they advertise 2000 watts.

I run mine around 14 hours per day with no heat issues. Of course, the fans run all the time and can bother some people with the noise. This amp is a class "D" and does deliver the goods. I power two VMPS Large UltraMega subwoofers (12" & 15" driver with a 15" PR) with this amp.

In the good old days, serious players like Don Keele of JBL and Audio magazine and Tom Nousaine of Sound&Vision who has tested hundreds of subwoofers, used the now discontinued Crown Macro Reference. Tom used this amp for his home IB system which uses 8 15 inch drivers to achieve 129 db. This 60 pound beast is rated as follows:

Stereo mode:


760 watts per channel into 8 ohms

I literally just smoked my week old ep4000. I brought it back and grabbed a qsc gx5. I took some preliminary measurements and all looks the same.
