The KM1700 from Behringer is a stereo power amplifier that 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.

Features:

  • 2 x 800W into 4 Ohms
  • 2 x 500W into 8 Ohms
  • 1700 Watts into 8 Ohms (bridged mono mode)
  • ATR (Accelerated Transient Response) technology for punch and clarity
  • Switchable limiters offer maximum output level with reliable overload protection
  • Power, signal and clip LEDs to monitor performance
  • XLR and 1/4" TRS input connectors
  • Professional speaker connectors and touch-proof binding posts
  • Independent DC and short circuit protection on each channel automatically protects amplifier and speakers
  • High-current toroidal transformer for high transient response
  • Front to back ventilation
  • Impact-resistant, all-steel 2U rackmount chassis
