Behringer KM1700 Professional 1700W Stereo Power Amplifier
KM 1700 from behringer is a stereo power amplifier which is capable of delivering 500W into 8 Ohm loads, or 800W into 4 Ohm loads. In bridged-mono mode, it can reach an output power of 1700W. The amplifier features Behringer's ATR technology, which is designed to preserve a quick, tight transient response even at high volume levels.
Its front panel controls are simple: two positive-detent gain knobs allow you to control the level of each independent channel. To keep you abreast of the amplifier's various goings-on, LEDs have been provided for monitoring of power, signal, and overloads.
Turn your attention to the back panel and you'll notice two balanced XLR inputs, as well as two unbalanced 1/4" TRS jacks. The amplifier provides two locking speaker connections with touch-proof binding posts, thus supporting the wiring systems of most professional speakers. You'll also see the selector which switches between mono, stereo, or bridged mono mode, as well as a ground/lift switch and a selector to turn on the built-in limiter.
