Finally, Great-Sounding Active Loudspeakers That Won't Break Your Back or Bank Account!

Thanks to our revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology and internal switch-mode power supplies, EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers provide a much better power-to-weight ratio than competing active speakers. Put simply, you get all the power without the back-breaking weight. And the sound quality of these lightweight loudspeakers exceeds that of our extremely popular EUROLIVE B212A and B215A systems - plus we've included two 200-Watt models, the B210D (10") and B208D (8") for less demanding applications. Due to their high-efficiency design, they crank out 550/200 of the cleanest, punchiest audio Watts you've ever heard from a compact loudspeaker system. The integrated sound processor provides total system control, along with dependable protection of the LF and HF transducers, thanks to the built-in active high-pass filter, which virtually eliminate distortion - even at extreme operating levels. In addition, all four models feature an Ultra-Low Noise (ULN) Mic/Line input with LEVEL control and a dedicated 2-band EQ (bass/treble) for easy control.

Intelligent by Design

One of the coolest things about active loudspeakers is the lack of back-breaking racks of amps, crossovers and EQs that are often required to make passive speaker systems sound almost as good. But that comes with a trade-off - that extra weight is transferred to the loudspeaker, making it difficult for a single user to heave all that mass onto the top of a speaker stand. BEHRINGER's D Series' "Intelligent-Design" merges the best features of active loudspeakers with significantly lower weight by using switch-mode power supplies and Class-D amplifi er topology. Hidden deep inside each enclosure is the equivalent of an active 2-way electronic crossover, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, mic preamp, limiter and two Class-D power amplifiers, yet overall weight is less than comparable loudspeaker systems! These components work together seamlessly to provide optimum sound quality - and it all takes place automatically, without you having to touch a single knob.

Class D Amplifier Technology Delivers High Power With Low Weight.

Instead of operating relatively continuously like Class AB circuits, Class D amps switch on and off thousands of times per second, delivering power only when needed. In other words, the amplifier is either fully on or fully off , which significantly reduces the power losses in the output devices. This is easy in theory and complex in practice, which is why there are so many different Class D designs. Without boring you with terms like PWM Generation and Gate Drivers, let's just say that to realize the benefits of a Class D design requires compensating for a lot of potential problems that can cause audible distortion. BEHRINGER didn't invent Class D technology, but our RD Department has been working for years to perfect our own version with all the benefits of reduced weight and cool running, and none of the drawbacks. That's why we invested over a solid year of research time eliminating pitfalls like quantizing errors and excess dead time, selecting just the right switching frequency (and other equally tech-y terms). And why we spent an equally long time testing individual components to ensure they will stand up to the rigors of the real world. When combined with switching-mode power supplies that replace heavy toroid transformers, our new designs provide more dynamic punch since the higher switching frequency reloads the supply's capacitors much faster. And, because they are so much more efficient, the D Series runs cooler and doesn't require huge, heavy heat sinks. The resulting speakers systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up. Our no-compromise design means your D Series active loudspeakers will deliver full power and incredible fidelity all night long, with no need for rest cycles.

Instant PA System

With just a single D Series loudspeaker system and a microphone or MP3 player, you can set up an instant sound system. Thanks to the built-in preamp section, you just connect a dynamic mic and raise and lower the volume with the Level control. Plug in your sound source, place the speaker on a tabletop or stand, and power up. It's just that easy. And if you need more coverage, simply use the convenient LINK OUTPUT XLR connector to add more active loudspeakers.

Stereo Music System

You can even use two D Series enclosures for stereo playback of your MP3, CD or old-skool cassette deck without any additional hardware. Just plug the appropriate stereo "breakout" adapter into your deck's output jack and run the cables to the 1/4" inputs on each loudspeaker. Set the Level and EQ controls the same on both enclosures. Voilà, instant party!

Marvelous Monitoring

Thanks to their trapezoidal design, these cabinets can be laid on their side providing the ideal angle for onstage monitor wedge applications. Hookup is simple, requiring only a single XLR or 1/4" cable from the monitor send on your mixing console and, of course, power. Additional monitors can be chained together via the XLR LINK OUTPUT jack on the rear panel.

Custom-Designed Transducers

Let's face it; the transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so we don't cut any corners. While some of our competitors are content to buy off-the-shelf transducers and plug them into their boxes, we custom-design and build our transducers from scratch. Not only do we wind our own voice coils, we process the paper pulp into cones and even machine our own backplates. This enables us to control the quality, and frankly, make better components, like the long-excursion LF transducers and state-of-the-art 1.35" compression drivers we deploy in each and every EUROLIVE enclosure.

Low Frequency Response

The EUROLIVE D Series was built with extended low frequency handling in mind. With a tuned port, internally braced, injection molded enclosure, each model's custom-designed LF transducer (woofer) really cranks out tight low end. Keep in mind that bass response varies according to LF transducer size, so the larger the speaker, the more bass you will be able to generate.

Accurate Non-Fatiguing Midrange and Treble

Even if your particular application doesn't include booming bass, you'll love the sheer accuracy of these loudspeakers. Over a year of design went into a exponential horn/aluminum dome compression driver combination that could do justice to loud hard rock or dance music - yet could also satisfy audiophiles with its musical timbre and attention to detail. For spoken word, singing or acoustical instruments, they are un-matched for being able to articulate complex harmonic details. In fact, many customers think it's the most natural-sounding speaker they've ever heard at anywhere near the price.

Processor Controlled Output

Dynamic processing is one of the best ways to maximize output without sacrificing sound quality. The D Series' built-in circuitry automatically adjusts program content, allowing the loudspeaker to operate at extreme levels. It accomplishes this by reducing bass output slightly as you approach the limit of the transducers. This frees up LF amp and transducer resources, so that higher overall volume can be realized. It's like having a tiny soundman inside each cabinet constantly monitoring and changing output parameters. By making subtle changes to the crossover frequency and the audio content, the system is able to crank out more sound - without the slightest hint of distortion.

Massive Power to Size Ratio

Cutting-edge technology and high-fidelity speakers are not all it takes to get your message across - you need power, and lots of it. At the heart of each EUROLIVE D Series loudspeaker are two high-current amplifiers with a total output of 550-Watts for the B212D/B215D and 200-Watts for the B210D/B208D. They're capable of driving the speakers to their maximum with no distortion - and without speaker damage, thanks to active internal protection circuits. Put simply, they will astound you with their massive punch, smooth mids and articulate top-end!

Which Speaker do I Need?

As you've probably noticed, we make these active loudspeakers in four different woofer sizes. Which one is right for you? Well, let's start with your application. Is it spoken word in a hotel ballroom? Hard rock in a park? A folk singer or a drum 'n' bass DJ? Loud enough for an 18-year old or loud enough for your grandmother? A huge auditorium or a tiny club? Physics are physics and a 15" low frequency transducer has almost 40% more surface area with which to move air than a 12". A 12" has 30% more area than a 10", and a 10" has 35% more than an 8". So the easiest answer is "Whether to choose one speaker cabinet over another depends on your bass requirements." If you're addressing a small meeting, or demoing the latest "slice-o-chop-o-vegamatic" at the swap meet or county fair, the B208D might be all the speaker you'll need. But if you're providing disco to the masses at a standing room only nightclub - or you just need to crank it up louder, then the B215D may be a better choice. As you can see, "Bass requirements" isn't quite as easy an answer as it sounds. The larger a room's cubic volume, the more energy is required to achieve a given level of bass. In other words, when playing the same tune in a big room versus a small room, big room = less bass; small room = more bass. Confused yet? We suggest that you consult your BEHRINGER dealer for more advice on this subject, which is also a good time to do a listening test - against their competition and against each other. Judge for yourself. And then own BEHRINGER with money to spare.

They work great and I'm very pleased with the sound quality.

While the mackie's bass sounded more tight and punchy than these, this behringer seemed to have a more 'full' range and realistic sound.

Purchased two of the B215D speakers for live gigs. I run vocal, guitar, synth and two drum machines through this system and the sound blows me away. I tried the 15" EONs, but the drums would cause them to clip at larger gigs. What a bargin...these Behringers are half the price of EONs and have a better sound that can handle higher volumes. I first tried the the B212D (12" speakers), but the 15" speakers (B215D) added a lot of bottom to my sound which is needed for the drum machines. Don't give it a second thought, just stop lookin'...and start cookin' with a set of these bad boys. Lots of compliments on my new sound from my repeat customers.

Alot of times, people make the mistake of trying to save money and grab the lowest priced PA speaker. In my case, I had a budget, but also wanted the most bang for my buck. I went down to my local guitar center to hear these in person and they blew me away. Initially, I was interested in the Mackie Thump series. While the mackie's bass sounded more tight and punchy than these, this behringer seemed to have a more 'full' range and realistic sound. The bass is enough for most applications, but if you're looking to shake the walls, you may look to add a 18" subwoofer. But the range and power of these are truly unbelievable. I was worried that 550 watts per speaker wouldnt be enough to really fill a room. I did my 1st DJ gig the other week, and I had my mixer (fader) volume at 50% and volume on the speakers themselves, set at barely 20%, if that. I was no where NEAR the full potential in terms of volume, and they were MORE than loud enough.

For the money, you can't really go wrong. But everybody has different ears... so go to your local pro audio supply shop and listen to them yourself, in person and compare with the other speakers. I wanted the JBL Eon's, but the price point was too high for me at this point in time. These are more than I expected for the price. I'm happy with my purchase.

For those who don't know, this speaker is huge. Standing on the ground its about waist high. Comes with power cable, being an ACTIVE speaker. 2 Inputs, XLR or 1/4, and another XLR to run another speaker.

I purchased one of these babies, we use it for a floor monitor in our home studio. Its loud enough to have one set up for a small venue. Works perfectly for what we use it for. I will be purchasing another one down the road since the quality is outstanding.

If you want bang for your buck, this puppy is worth every penny.
BY THE WAY, THIS THING IS SUPER SUPER LOUD!

I have owned several pieces of Behringer gear in the past and they have all had one thing in common--great value. Behringer really knows how to get the job done, and done well, on a budget. At 550 Watts this thing is very loud, with a healthy amount of bass response (as you would expect from 280 W RMS through a 15" woofer). I originally purchased this to run sound for my sister's wedding on a budget. I borrowed a similarly sized powered speaker from a friend (sorry, I don't remember the brand) and needed a second one for a stereo setup in an outdoor courtyard setting. I was very pleased with the performance of the system, even with the two speakers set 40 ft apart outdoors, the highs were clear and there was plenty of bass for the dance floor, mostly coming from the Behringer. Trust me, it is LOUD. I've only ever had it up to about half of full volume.

With that event over, I now have the Behringer powered speaker setup in my garage, and it's currently being used as amplification for my electronic drumset (Roland TDK-9) and guitar rig (Line 6 Variax through a POD HD500). Let's just say my ears have been ringing a whole lot more of late. I am loving it.

My one "problem" with this speaker is that I'm enjoying it so much I'm going to have to buy a second one when I can afford it (and the price went up a bit since I got mine--I paid $254 with Amazon Prime shipping).

If you're on the fence, DO IT! You would be hard pressed to find a better deal than this!

These are fantastic live-music or DJ speakers. I picked up two of them.

POSITIVES: crisp, clear and amazingly loud sound reinforcement in a relatively light package, wedge-shaped so they can be used as stage monitors, recessed pole mount and feet that nest into the top of another exact unit for stacking, handles on both sides makes moving easy, 1/4-inch and XLR inputs, standard power plug, price can't be matched

NEGATIVES: lacks serious low end, the gain level adjustments for high and low aren't very granular and makes fine tuning difficult

With a relatively simple Behringer mixer my gang of musical hacks have the following instruments feeding into these speakers: a set of Roland electronic drums, 2 electric guitars, 1 acoustic guitar, 1 bass guitar (stringed instruments via a direct input rack-mount unit), three microphones and a laptop. The bass drum kick was washed out and didn't have as much punch as would be needed for quality low-end sound. When others are playing at the same time this is even more noticeable as other instruments compete for the 15-inch driver. A sub will be needed for the full spectrum sound reproduction of stage equipment.

We use two of the Behringer B215D to jam/practice in the basement, so the volume level rarely goes above a quarter and almost never above half. Two of these speakers change the sound pressure level so effectively that it vibrates our smaller single-family home. These are pretty dramatic overkill for in-home sound. At half volume level the sound can be heard outside even if the windows are closed.

For plugging in a laptop these work well for DJ'ing or just listening to music.
