Delivering pure premium power and reliability, the 2500-watt J-2500 stereo power amplifier is great for those small rock and DJ gigs needing massive power.

Pure Premium Power

The Tapco Juice series of amps deliver gobs of power and maintain their high-quality sound for volumes ranging from quiet to cranked. With three models delivering 800, 1400 and 2500 watts of premium power amplification you're sure to find a Juice Series amp.

Features you can use

Sure, the Juice Series look great, but who's going to see them in a rack on side of the stage? You will, that's who. That's why Tapco added some nice extras to make your job easier. The front-panel includes a volume control and bright signal presence and overload LEDs for each channel. A tour around the back will reveal a mode select switch for mono/stereo/bridged mono operation, a 30Hz subsonic filter for eliminating the lowest of the low frequencies, plus a main breaker and clip limiter circuit for amplifier and loudspeaker protection. Balanced 1/4-inch and XLR inputs plus separate binding post and Speakon outputs for fast setup and no hunting for adapters.

Great for every application

Whether you're setting up for band practice in the garage, waking up at 5 P.M. to get to the club for tonight's gig, or at the club waiting for the bass player to arrive for sound check, you can count on the Tapco Juice J-2500 amplification system to deliver exceptional sound quality without fail.

Tapco Juice J-2500 meets expectations and more!

By R. Todd Eastman

from Arlington, Tx

$400, 1400W RMS into 2 ohms! You can't find that anywhere else in any amp I know of. That's why I got 2, one for my stereo (2-4 Ohm SP4's per side hooked in parallel) high/mids and one for my stereo 4 Ohm subs (Yamaha 2x18's, one 2x18/side) crossed over at 100 Hz. These babies rock! The only problem I encountered was that they are really, really powerful. One bout with feedback took out one of my horn fuses! That said, they sound, as I said, POWERFUL! They're built like tanks and probably weigh as much as an artillery shell, but they look and feel solidly built. One drawback, you need support for the rear of the amps if mounted in a road rack as they are hefty metal slabs supported only by the faceplate,otherwise. A package of 4 fuses was provided with the amp, a very prudent and thoughtful accomodation, along with amp handles to mount on the faceplate if desired. Time will tell on the issue of longevity, but if the attention to detail and the watts/dollar ratio are any indication, Tapco (subsidiary of Mackie) will most likely out do themselves in that department, too!
