2,000-Watt Class-D Bass Amplifier with MOSFET Preamp, Compressor and DYNAMIZER Technology
The Ultrabass BX2000H 2000-Watt Bass Amplifier from Behringer is a solid state bass amplifier capable of up to 2000 watts of output, designed for use both on stage and in the studio.
It features a high-voltage MOSFET preamp, designed to provide tube tone. You can shape your sound via the integrated 5-band EQ and Shape Filter, while the on-board compressors with Behringer's Dynamizer power management provide parallel-style compression to tame your dynamics.
The BX2000H provides a variety of routing options for both live and studio purposes, including a post-EQ balanced XLR DI output, allowing you to send your shaped tone directly to a console or audio interface for recording.
The amp's FX loops allows you to integrate external effects, while the footswitch input lets you use an optional footswitch for hands-free muting and FX loop toggling.
Separate active and passive inputs assure correct impedance matching for a wide variety of bass guitars, both vintage and modern.

Class-D - Massive Power, Perfect Sound
Thanks to Behringer's revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology, this amp is able to provide you with enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package.
Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks.
This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely-powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.
MOSFET Preamp - High-Voltage, High-Headroom Tube Sound
BEHRINGER ’s revolutionary high-voltage MOSFET preamplifier redefines solid-state bass tone, providing the sound, feel and immense dynamics of an authentic tube amp.
Like with real vacuum tubes, our new MOSFET design equally operates at high voltages, providing this preamp with unheard of headroom to honour all of your playing dynamics; from your subtly-nuanced signature riff s and bass lines, to your most powerful, attention-grabbing solos.
The BX2000H is all about tone, and this highly-versatile and responsive MOSFET preamp provides an abundance of headroom for consistently crystal-clear and faithful sound reproduction – no matter what style of music your gig calls for.
Studio-Quality Compressor - Stairway to Heaven
The built in studio-grade compressor is based on classic and famous studio equipment from the 70’s.
This totally transparent and musical compressor design allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, which is indicated by the highly visible status LED.
The compressor increases sustain and gently smooths out signal peaks, which is especially handy when you’re laying down the funk, à la slap and pop – or hammering home your most-aggressive metal lines.
The resulting output level lets you unleash powerful and impact-laden bass lines, while still sitting right where you need to be in the mix!
DYNAMIZER Technology - The Secret Weapon
What is known as Parallel_Compression or “New York” compression, is a dynamic range compression technique used as a secret weapon in high-end sound recording and mixing.
Parallel compression is achieved by mixing an unprocessed “dry”, or lightly compressed, signal with a heavily compressed version of the same signal. Rather than bringing down the highest peaks for the purpose of dynamic gain reduction, it reduces the dynamic range by bringing up the softest sounds, adding audible detail.
It is most often used on stereo percussion buses in recording and mixdown, on electric bass, and on vocals in recorded and live concert mixes.
Now this amazing technology is available to you!
Behringer have integrated parallel compression in their DYNAMIZER technology to provide you with tone and dynamics that are unheard of to date.
By working directly with the amplifier, their DYNAMIZER technology adds incredible detail and powerful, fat punch, so your sound is always impeccable, whether you’re playing super-soft – or at the extreme volume levels that push a dB-meter to the max!
DYNAMIZER allows you to take full advantage of every single Watt of your amplifier!
As bass players ourselves, we know that only the ultimate in tonal flexibility will do. Behringer designed the BX2000H to satisfy the most-demanding bassist – you!
It all starts with the vintage-style VU meter for precise input signal level monitoring. That signal is handed off to an extremely musical 5-band EQ that helps you easily dial-in any tone you can imagine.
And since we all want a little extra sometimes, BX2000H’s Deep and Bright switches are always there to launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere!
Add to this a dedicated and switchable Shape filter, which offers an extremely wide sonic palate and powerful control over the character of your tone, and you’ve got all the tone-shaping ability you could ever need.
A handy Mute switch allows you to tune up silently, and the separate Active and Passive inputs allow you to jump between your favourite basses in a flash.
Equally adept in the studio, on the stage or in your practice room, the BEHRINGER BX2000H has a stack of convenient options and connectivity to help you get the job done.
For recording and live performance applications, they’ve provided a world-class, balanced DI output, pre-configured Post-EQ so that the massive tone you produce on stage has the same impact in the back row.
Also included is a dedicated FX Loop for connecting your external effects.
Dual professional twist-lock sockets (compatible with Neutrik speakON cables) ensure that every last drop of your tone is delivered to your speaker cabinet, and they’ve even provided connectivity for our optional FSB112BX footswitch right from the front panel, so you can remotely-control Mute and FX Loop functions.
Protecting your investment, an active cooling system with variable fan speed, DC and thermal overload protection keeps your amp from getting as hot as your licks.
Everything You Need in One Package
The BX2000H is the stuff that bassists’ dreams are made of – a front end that can be completely customised and 5-band EQ section built around an astonishingly warm and sweet-sounding MOSFET preamp, mated to a remarkably potent, DYNAMIZER-regulated 2,000-Watt power section.
The BX2000H includes all the extras – DI out, FX Loop, dual speaker outputs, and optional footswitch compatibility – that the modern player demands.
Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany and covered by their 3 Year Limited Warranty Program, the BX2000H is sure to be the last amplifier you will ever need.
