As some of you already know, I run my stuff through Behringer gear. Well, after being a part of TB for a while now, and reading about Behringer's practices as a company, I believe it when people say that their power amps don't provide nearly the power they say they do. Here's my situation. After I had a problem with their BX3000t head, and sent it for repairs, I needed a cheap alternative so we could play our next show, so I bought their EP 2500 2400 watt power amp and used my DigiTech BNX3 as a preamp. I emailed the tech people at Behringer (who, I do have to admit were very nice and speedy with the response) told me how to set the dipswitches so I don't blow out my speakers (I play through their BA210 aluminum cone cab, rated at 500 watts and their BA115 rated at 600 watts).Well, needless to say, the power seemed lacking. I figured this was since I wasn't running a real preamp through it, so I waited until I got the other head back. I ran the line out into the power amp, and it turns out that for me to compete with my guitarist (who was running 120 watts at the time through a crappy Crate halfstack), I had to crank the power amp almost all the way (which was when the clip lights barely flicker when I really dig in). Here's the specs for the power amp. Each cab is rated at 8 ohms, and they're run out of separate outputs (didn't think I should run them both out of one output, as it would only cut my power in half, I believe): 20Hz-20kHz @ 0.1%THD both channels driven 8ohms per channel 450 watts 4ohms per channel 650 watts 1kHz @ 0.1%THD both channels driven 8ohms per channel 500 watts 4ohms per channel 750 watts 2ohms per channel 1200 watts Bridged Mono 8ohms 20Hz-20kHz, 0.1% THD 1300 watts 8ohms 1kHz, 0.1%THD 1500 watts 4ohms 1kHz, 1%THD 2400 watts taken from : http://www.behringerdownload.de/EP1500_EP2500/EP2500_SPECS_Rev_A.pdf It doesn't say anything about RMS on this or the instruction booklet. Neither does the cab booklets Besides buying new equipment, what would you guys suggest I do for more volume?
