Behringer KM1700 Professional 1700-Watt Stereo Power Amplifier
with ATR (Accelerated Transient Response) Technology
The remarkable KM1700 packs a heart-stopping 1700 Watts of output power into a lightweight (27.5 lbs/12.5 kg) package, thanks to our Accelerated Transient Response (ATR) technology.
Ample power (1700 Watts in Bridge mode; 2 x 800 Watts @ 4 Ohms; 2 x 500 Watts @ 8 Ohms) and high-tech efficiency combine, giving you a supercharged workhorse that will keep your rig kicking for years and years to come. 2 x 800 Watts into 4 Ohms; 2 x 500 Watts into 8 Ohms; 1700 Watts into 8 Ohms (bridge mode) ATR (Accelerated Transient Response) technology for ultimate punch and clarity Switchable limiters offer maximum output level with reliable overload protection Precise power, signal and clip LEDs to monitor performance XLR and 1/4" TRS input connectors for compatibility with any source Professional speaker connectors and "touch-proof" binding posts support most speaker wiring systems Independent DC and short circuit protection on each channel automatically protects amplifier and speakers High-current toroidal transformer for ultra-high transient response and absolute reliability “Front to back” ventilation for reliable operation "Built-like-a-tank" impact-resistant, all-steel 2U rackmount chassis 3-Year Warranty Program* Designed and engineered in Germany Accelerated Transient Response Delivers the Knockout Punch It takes huge pulses of energy (current and voltage) to propel a woofer cone out fast enough to match a bass beat.
That’s called Transient Response and it’s the holy grail of amp design. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of our circuitry, our amps are able to react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. If the woofers in your PA system can keep up, your audience will hear a tighter, crisper, more natural sound.
