Behringer KM1700 overview

  • 1Description

The KM1700 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.

    Behringer KM1700 reviews

    KM1700 Professional 1700W Stereo Power Amplifier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price This amp has tons of power, barely breaks a sweat for my setup. I'm using this for home theater and the fans are somewhat audible when the amp is out in the room, much like a desktop computer's fan-- a low whirring sound. For quietest operation putting this in a closet or at least in a rack with a door would basically make this inaudible. The power off switch, as well if I power off my conditioner while this was powered on both do not produce any pop noise, which is terrific and was my greatest fear. It simply shuts down quietly without fuss. It shipped with high sensitivity setting flipped to 0.77 V and I found this to be way too noisy. My speakers are roughly at 90db sensitivity and I am outputting from a Rolls mixer into the XLR on this amp. I found this setting unusable for my application, after flipping to 1.4 V everything was fine-- this setting has a higher noise floor and does not suffer from very much speaker hiss. What's great is that turning up amp gain does not produce more hiss either, it's a constant and almost completely inaudible hiss from less than 1ft from the speaker's tweeter. To me this is very acceptable as it's totally unnoticeable at any realistic seating position-- you literally have to have your head next to the speaker to hear it. For the price, this amp cannot be beat in my opinion.
