You are correct about the crossover, but the manual gives the slope. The crossover is fixed at 100Hz and the slope is 12dB. My understanding is that you can bypass the built-in crossover.

Here is the manual and brochure for download:

Thanks for the link. That was the one I found (1st), but I didn't see it at the bottom.

Anyway, 100Hz, 12dB (LR, Butterworth?) isn't likely to be correct for the majority of HT sub installations, so it's not much of a feature.

There is no manual available for download, but the quickstart guide shows it as a fixed 100Hz and doesn't define the slope, so the inbuilt xover is of dubious practical value.

According to the description on Behringer's website, the EPX has a built-in Subwoofer/Satellite crossover. They also show a diagram where the amp is connected to a subwoofer and two satellites. I assume this means the amp is appropriate as a subwoofer amp. To the best of my knowledge, the EP does not have a crossover.

The Face amps that Kevin Haskins recommends for subs are the same topography as these Berhinger units...but likely much higher quality

Have you ever seen Behringer saying their product is not good for something or any other brand matter of fact

You are right H class is a AB on Steroids

H class to be more accurate.
Semantic difference as it's an AB core with rail switching.

My comment was to differentiate it from class D PWM type amps.

The EPX amps may not offer more power than the EPs, but the offer up a lot less power consumption. That is an issue for those of us in older apartments with a limited number of circuits.
To my understanding it's a generic class AB1 amp with a SMPS. Consumption won't be much different if at all from another mains frequency PS amp of the same power. The SMPS is used mainly to save weight for rigs that move.
