Default Behringer ep 2500 service ....

i have never seen a burned EP 2500 in my shop .From all those many that work around only two come in to my shop for the same reason and IDE style conector they had inside was loose probably due to vibration .... other than that i had in mind that this amp is impossible to fail .

Till today when a burned EP 2500 5 yeras old come in to the shop first thing in the morning ....very qurious about that i skiped priority and put it on the bench ... found out that one of the output transitors had absolutely no soldering on the emmiter plus the construction robot forgot to cut the pin of the specific transitor

The amplifier has been working like that and it ws very possible that since the emmiter of the tranistor was placed on a dual leyer pcb in metal through pad that ws contacting a bit till this weekend that all the power was needed from the amp when a big ARK was there and 4 outs where blown to mars ...

I notified the local distributor about that and the company said to me that my amplifier is going to be replaced with brand new one (!!!!!) while the old one eventhough 5 years old will be returned to the factory for further investigation of the problem .....


talk about service minded company ....i am breathless !!!!!

And Peavey recently bought Crest too, and the new ultra low cost Peavey IPR class D amplifiers come from J.D. Benett, a well known designer that has worked for Crest and other reputable brands.

Brands are not usually as bad or as good as most "experts" tell (the preferences of most of them are actually based on commercial margins!!), although Behringer are experts in copying, but they seem to have a good taste when choosing what to copy, EP2500 is very similar to the old QSC EX2500.

"And Peavey recently bought Crest too"

Crest Audio was acquired by Peavey Electronics in 1999.

Ouch! On paper it sounded like a more recent move.
