Re: Quieter Fan Mod for Behringer EP2500

did you get a fan yet ? i got mines from Digi key - but i am using a GX5 amp - not sure if the fan size is the same - my fan was a 24V model which i belieave yours should be the same also - you need to find out the size - i think it should be similar - maybe 80 x 25 - and try to match up your CFM with a low DB noise -

search that website if you havnt already - My Part number is P9739-ND -- from Digi-Key - Manufactor part number is - FBA08A24L1A -- let me know if thats good for you -

Re: Quieter Fan Mod for Behringer EP2500

I just ordered a pair of these http://www.digikey.com/product-detai...753-ND/2615566 for my pair of garage mounted EP4000's. My drivers are mounted IB right next to the amplifiers, and I could actually hear the stock fans through the paper cones up in the theater. The fans I selected seemed like the best compromise for high airflow and low noise with a bias towards high airflow for hot summers in the garage, rated at 30db and 41.3cfm -- 10db less noise and 12cfm less air movement. I guess I won't really find out until the dead of summer, but I think they'll hold up.

Re: Quieter Fan Mod for Behringer EP2500

I push my 2500's very very hard.... they don't even get warm after 2 hours of black hawk down (and I can't even till there on), easily one of the best and least expensive mods I've ever done.

Re: Quieter Fan Mod for Behringer EP2500

I just did the mod on my EP4000.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1447896/nu...-fan-mod-notes

It was a pain to upload pictures here so I posted it to AVSforum

It takes less than 10 min to do this mod if you order a 24v low RPM fan. not worth messing around with resisters and what not.
