You know... when I was looking at those coolerguys fans, I was not even paying attention that a 24v was required. I have not looked, but they may have one, but the Newark should work just fine.

Some people do use 12v pc fans, but they change resistors or something...beyond my knowledge, lol.

My newark fan didn't come with a clip on the end of the wires, can I use the factory clip after removing the old fan?

Thaks, do you just splice into the existing wires just before the plug and then solder the connections?

So is the newark the most commonly used 24v?
Seems easier to use a 24v than switch to a 12v.

These suckers are fairly loud, lol.
The Panaflo model is most commonly recommended, because after a long series of attempts at resistor mods and fan replacement, the Panaflo was found to be the lowest noise option in a certain extended length thread concerning Ep2500 fan options, and by a significant margin, based on my imperfect memory.

Re: Quieter fan mod for Behringer EP2500

Could you try two 12VDC fans in series (along with some series resistance to reduce the fan speed for quieter operation)??

Don't mess around with 12v or series or anything else odd. Just do it right the first time.

What I quoted below is all you need. It is absolutely innaudible from three feet away in an absolutely silent room.
Get your refridgerator going or the A/C and you can't even hear this fan with your head right next to it.

Thanks to this thread, I picked up the 24v FBA08A24L1A from arrow dot com for about $19 including second day air (I was in a rush). I have less than ten posts here, so I can't post the direct link to arrow.

Installing the fan was one of the easier things I've done lately.
Results are very good. The EP2500 is not what I would consider "silent". But the fan is inaudible from more than a few feet away, or at my sitting distance. I can only hear it when I walk right past it.

I would do this mod again. And it's safer than going with a 12v fan.

Re: Quieter fan mod for Behringer EP2500

hi - i just changed out my fan from a QSC GX5 amp - i put in the panaflow model 24 volt - low speed -

works excellent in terms of noise - i cant hear it at all now - almost wonder if its working -- i did check it before i closed the amp - it worked - i just spliced the wires because i didnt have and cant find the 2 pin connector -

i have a guestion if anyone would know - does this fan spin the same speed all the time ? or does it speed up as more volts are sent to it when the amp gets hotter ?

i hope this fan is enough to keep it from shutting down or doing any damage - i am using it for HT use and music - i do listen to music loud at times - but not for that long - has anyone had issues when using this low speed fan ?

thanks
