I have no bass at all. The amp is connected to 4 speakers (in series) of lower power as I was told this gave better quality? When I turn the power off the left red clip light turns on and I hear a little pop. Help is much appreiciated!!
sounds like you have either a blown speaker,dodgy lead, or a blown crossover, i would experiment with different leads and speakers to narrow this down, i had a similar problem with my worrior amp and i ended up replacing all wiring within speaker cabinet (manufacturer used very thin cables) and not had a problem since. the thicker cable the better the sound and less resistance equals less problems.
hope this helps

Re: Behringer ep 2500
Sounds like you may have a phasing problem with the 4 speakers connected in series. This has the effect of cancelling the bass out. Check that you have them all wired as say "stripe" to negative terminal on the speaker. I use this as a rule of thumb to be sure there are never any phasing problems. they all(speaker boxes) need to be facing the same way for bass to propagate well. Check that you have bridging OFF and all settings to "stereo" SAny other settings you are not sure on, just ask me here :)

Either there is NO bass on the recordings (if you listen to it with headphones does it have bass?) ...OR...you've wired them out of phase. Connect only one(1) Bose 901's to just one side. Is there bass? Then connect the other side. IS there bass? If not reverse the phase (+ /- connections) and see if the bass comes back. Once that is done and there is BASS, then add the 3rd and then the 4th speaker. .Are you sure your Sansui can handle a lower than 4 ohm load???
The rule of thumb is you control your audio on the low side. That means you plug your mics, tuners, audio sources into the pre-amp and then the pre-amp into the equalizer/mixer ant finally the mixer into the power amp and the amp into the "large honkin' speakers". The inter connects on the low side (between the source, the mixer and the power amp are usually done with RCA plugs. Use a good quality set of cables to get good tight connections and solid grounding. AUDIO SOURCE?MIXER?POWER AMP--- heavy speaker wire sized to your SPEAKERS.
DISCONNECT ALL INPUTS(MIC CD) AND CHECK.DISCONNECT ALL OUTPUTS AND CHECK(ALL SPEAKERS ONE BY ONE)IF THE PROBLEM CLEARED WHEN YOU DISCONNECT ANY INPUT OR OUTPUT FIX IT BY CHANGING START WITH CABLES FIRST.
You know, watts is a heat dissipation unit... It tells nothing about your speaker, the usage you wanna do with it, and what about the amp! Usually on proffessionnal amplifier ( i mean touring power amp) we rely 2 speakers in parallel per side of amp. It turns the amp working at 4 ohms and ifs it pushed by a good amp, and a reasonnable operator, things goes find. If amp ''clip'' it sending DC in the speakers and you actually in the way of a repair. So its now having too much power amp that usually breaks speakers, but too small amp. Check the specifications of what your amp can gives at 20hz to 20khz, both channel driven at 4 ohms. You find out that the amp you believe was sending you 500watts is giving you only 250... Thats why pro series of amp cost so much. Because they are not playing on words but giving power... Cheap series of pro amp counts wattages at 4ohms one channel driven at 1khz at 1% distortions wich is unnaceptable. 0.1% is the max acceptables. Go meet the tech at your local big touring sound contractor and ask for the real thing. You'll get the right answer and analysis of your kit...
if after the pop it smells like a firecracker just went of than you fried the circit for that speaker or if it has fuses on it or ferther down the wire check them but it could be just the radio and nothin to worry about:)
a friends car does it, and it is very anoying
