    They're kinda heavy- that's why I took mine out of my rig. Also, the 1200W per side is at 2 ohms. The 2400W bridged is at 4 ohms. Go to Behringer's site and grab the real specs. They're OK, nothing special. I think the 2500 puts out 450W at 8 ohm. Check here

    i ask the same question to a friend that own a DJ stuff related shop in the city I live in, he said the duming factor was very important in power amp, this one has a medium one, but for the price it's a FAIR FAIR FAIR deal.

    It´s easy to sell cheap products when you steel someone elses design... (QSC RMX anyone?)

    How is it any different than everyone and their brother stealing the Fender Bassman design, or the Fender Jazz Bass design? :eyebrow:

    I've heard that Behringer stuff is made with really inexpensive and cheaply made components and that their failure rates are astronomically high. Personally, I've only had one of their mixers and it worked pretty darn good for me while I had it. Not sure that I'd trust my bass's power plant to Behringer though.

  9. Hey, it says right in the ad, first paragraph mind you, that it is "a dependable workhorse that will never let you down."

    So why the trepidation? It's in black and white. No worries here.

    Indeed. "europower" obviously means more power for your Euro. :p

    Well I've had my 2500 now I want to say for a year. I think a year I forget exactly when they came out but I believe I bought one of the very first ones available from musiciansfriend. I've had no problems with it what so ever and its plenty loud for the cabs I use. (1 2/10 and 2 1/15 cabs) When all 3 cabs are chained together I believe I'm at 2 ohms. (2/10 cab is 4 ohms and each 15 cab is 8 ohms) So I'm getting the full power out of amp. Sure your going to hear people say they ripped off QMC or whatever the company is called but in reality for the price this is a darn good power amp.

    It's morally wrong to copy something and sell for it less. Copying a design and selling it for two or three times the price is fair game.

    That's one of the dumbest thing I've ever read--I can only assume you're joking.

    So, Rondo/Essex are "morally wrong," but Sadowsky/Lull/etc are okay. :rollno:

    It is called capitalism. I don't agree with it, I think it is wrong, but it is the psuedo-system we are living in. So deal with it.
