Overview

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 Speaker System comes with 2 10" 2-way powered satellites and a dedicated powered 15" subwoofer. The Matrix-1000 V2 has a built-in 3-channel 700W power amplifier, 3 independent volume controls, electronic crossover with equalization, and VCA compressor.

The circuitry is designed and fine-tuned to integrate all components for the best possible sound. There is no need to tweak or finesse settings on a crossover or compressor to make your system sound great. Simply roll the system into place on its heavy duty casters, plug in the AC, connect the two speaker cables, run two XLR cables to your mixer and you're ready to go

Built-in 3-channel amplifier
The 15" subwoofer enclosure is divided into two separate compartments. The front chamber serves as the cabinet for the 15" subwoofer. The rear chamber houses all of the system's electronic circuitry, which includes the amplification for all three components, power supply and preamps. The 15" subwoofer has a power handling capability of 400 watts and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms.

10" satellite speakers

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 satellites are loaded with a custom designed 10" speaker and 1" titanium diaphragm compression driver. The "horn" is a 90 x 60 elliptical waveguide that can be rotated 90 to optimize the dispersion pattern to best suit your particular application. These versatile B-52 speakers are pole-mountable and can sit as stage monitors. They also include 3/8"”16 tpi flying hardware for small venue permanent installations. The rounded front of the satellite speaker is a perfect fit for the convex face of the subwoofer, allowing you to stack, roll and transport the entire Matrix-1000 V2 in and out of a venue in record time.

Transporting the system

To transport the B-52 Matrix-1000 V2, simply set the subwoofer on its casters and place the satellite speakers on to the subwoofer's front panel, facing down. Fasten the satellites with the included locking strap using the handles on either side of the subwoofer cabinet. Place the included cover over the entire PA speaker system and you're ready to move the Matrix-1000 V2 with ease.

Have used this sytem for over a year for DJ work. I carried it to Ohio to do a class reunion in a Marriot Hotel ballroom. Never phased this quality unit and with 400 folks in attendance never went above 2/3 power. Did the same in Arkansas 2 weeks later and result the same. Flawless pure sound for vocals and music. This unit had to ride in the outside compartment of a 40 ft motorhome for this journey with day temps in excess of 105. It is still performing flawlessly. Agree on weight but can live with that in exchange for the clear power.

I own one of these junkers and it is not worth any money. I got about a year out of it and BOOM! Smoke and burnt smell, it was cooked. B-52 has no customer support what so ever. I have been in contact with another unsatisfied customer whom had to get a lawyer to settle his case. Any how I tried to fix this thing. The fuses that B-52 use inside the cabinet, (there are 4 internal and on external) are a weird size and amperage. I had to re-solder a new fuse holder to accommodate a new fuse. Oh and B-52 could not tell me the size. I also had to replace the woofer. I have been in the business for 12 years and thought this would be a great little set up for a small pub I DJ at. I was not in any way PUMPIN' it to the max. Normal HIP-Hop and TOP40. DO NOT BUY THIS. Pioneer Pioneer Pioneer!

These speakers changed my life

By Justin

from New York

These speakers take 5 minutes to set up, extremely durable, and deliver some dirty bass. Mine have been through over 20 sweet sixteens, dances, and house parties. They will support girls dancing on the subwoofer, beer spilt on the floor, and fill an entire dance hall. WARNING: These speakers are noise violation material. I have had the best experience with these B-52's and would recommend them to any starting mobile DJ's or experienced one who need a smaller and quicker alternative to a crazy 30 min set-up operation. If you are still doubting the sound of the B-52 Matrix 1000's there are always the Matrix 2000's with an 18" subwoofer and 2 12" satellites.

I Want Nothing Else

By Bigg Daddy Zay

from Miami, Florida

I've had the Matrix 1000 for about a little over a Year and I Love it. At first I was kind of skeptical because I had never heard of them before. I love it I want nothing else, it's compact, quick setup, durable, and the sound quality is beyond all expectations. I use it as a Mobile DJ Setup. It is a great investment, the only thing I don't favor is it's weight. other than that a perfect setup.

The BEST Mobile System

By The Guys

from Fort Wayne, Indiana

We bought this system to start our Mobile DJ business in 2005, and haven't looked back. It is incredibly clear, and powerful in one unit. Setup and transportation is a breeze with the casters on the sub. Don't let the speaker size fool you, these pack a huge punch. If you want a clean setup that won't fail on you, this is what you need. While other DJ's brag about their speaker size, you can get more gigs as they pack and unpack those monsters.

Don't hesitate to buy them!

By John E

from Chicago, IL

I bought these speakers based off what I heard in store. I brought them home and have not been disappointed. I use these speakers to do gigs and in my basement while practicing. They shake the house! You will not be disappointed. Clear highs and heart pounding bass. They are heavy, so moving them up and down stairs is not fun, but as another reviewer wrote, they're rugged and clear, so I'll forgive them for being heavy. Great product!

Very Nice For E-Drums

By Joe

from Portland , Maine

I picked up a set of these speakers one week ago and I am totally impressed with them. I was a bit concerned because I had never heard of B-52 speakers before, but once I got them home and fired them up, my concerns were gone. I use them to play my Yamaha DTXTREME ll drum kit through and the sound is fantastic. I get great volume, crystal clear sound, and I have a ton of headroom left in the system. The punch from the sub woofer when I hit the toms and kick drum is excellent. this system is also great for playing CD's through. An excellent value.

Awsome

By Salsapete

from Orlando Florida

I have never been so impressed with a so much by a sound system before. What a great sound for Large or small halls. Don't let the price of this system fool you. This was what I could afford and pretty much wanted to pay. If this is their low end product. The high end should surly be good enough for Arena use as well. Thank you BX for being a true friend to the DJ's and musicians of America.

WOW! I love these speakers!

By Shayne

from Washington DC

My band needed some new speakers for our practices, and I was a little skeptical at first. But I was so wrong! I was skeptical because we have 4 vocal mics, 12 mics for the drums, jam blocks and congas, also 2 keyboards, 1 bass and 1 lead guitar. Thats 20 different sounds at once. I had a live recording of us on my phone, they plugged my phone into the speakers and WOW! I could not beleive the clarity, and the sub was perfect! This was with no adjustment, just plug and play!

Great value for the price!

By Kevin From Big D

from Dallas, TX

I am not a full-time musician, but I play regularly. I use this system for some DJ work and as a live performance system for my band. Many low end systems lack power and have limited flexibility because they are "all in one" systems. This system sounds great, has greater flexibility (you use your owner mixer, etc.) and is perfect for small to medium sized venues. If you try to pull together a similar system out of components (separate amp, good side speakers, and a separate subwoofer) you will pay substantially more (plus, it will not be as portable). I use this system with a 16 channel (passive) mixer, a B-52 Prodigy DJ workstation, two powered stage monitors, and BBE sonic maximizers. If you are looking for great sound for less than $1000, buy this system!

Excellent in MOST Situations

By Dienda

from Saint Louis, MO

I could not have been happier with this purchase until one major thing occured. I had an event where I had DubStep and Drum & Bass DJs playing on my system. Guess what? The middle bass tones don't exist on this sound system. I'm not exactly sure why, but I'm willing to bet it has to do with factory set EQing... So if you all you are playing is house, techno, and Top 40? Then this system is amazing! If you are going the more bass intense stuff then look elsewhere.

HOLY SH*@!!!

By Music Inc Mobile DJ

from Luverne, MN

I've had my own DJ business for over 3 yrs now and have always stayed away from 'powered speakers' and packaged PA's. Recently my company grew enough that I needed a second system for karaoke shows. I figured I'd give it a try, the price was right. WOW WOW WOW, thumping bass, clear highs and mids! I've actuallly used it for a couple DJ shows now. I think I'll upgrade to the matrix 2000 this winter for my DJ system.

The Matrix 1000V2

By Ambicom85 on AIM

from Shrewsbury,MA

I (my mom and dad) bought the Matrix 1000v2 for me so I can start my own DJ business at the age of 11 (Im that age currently). I've had this speakers system for over 7 months now and all I can say is WOW! The Bass is Awesome and The 2 sat. speakers are very powerull. Don't let size fool you. I DJ'd a a party with 280 people and all I can say is, "It went through all the jumps on the dancefloor, all the screams of the kids, and all the talking of the large crowd". The speakers are very mobile but the Sub is a little to big for 1 person to carry it (150+ lbs). Sometimes I wished there would be a little more bass but other than that this thing is excellent! Also, The fans at the back really dont have much of a use except to cool it by probobly 1 degree farenheiht.

Tons of great sound!

By Greg

from Gig Harbor, WA

I've had this system for over 1 year now. I use it for weddings, house parties, and backyard BBQs. I love it! It's plenty loud indoors and out. Awesome chest-pounding bass. Clear, smooth mids and highs. It's also very portable and easy to set up. I also like that it does all that without using a ton of power. No tripping ciruit breakers in the middle of a party. A good product at any price.

Great Sound

By MK

from Salisbury,MD

I just got it today. Running a Behringer Xenyx 1002 FX The vocals through a EV 767A And SM58 Very Much worth the $$ BUT YOu do NOT get speaker cables and need to have those before you get the system! GC took great care of me and the packaging, setup are great! I think she is a bit too heavy! Ouch!

Good...but....

By David Pickett

from Memphis, TN

I'm a mobile DJ that needed to step up my game from a Fender Passport (which I still use in very small functions). I had no bass and couldn't fill up the sound in a gymnasium - which is where the B52 came in nicely. The volume was much better than what I had been using (150W Vs 300W)...plus the built-in 15" sub (with its own 400W amp) made the hiphop music really bang. Overall, the sound quality was very good...especially for the price. The speaker components were high quality and the SPL and spread were good. The warranty is also solid. However... 1. The system is not as durable as my passport or other ABS (plastic) housings. The speaker housings (while they do boast a lifetime warranty on the cabs) are basically particleboard which will ding and chip if you don't take extremely good care of them. Also, over time I heard a rattling sound inside one speaker. After consulting with B52 tech support (which is good once you can finally get a hold of them), I opened the housing and found a coil of cable hanging by its wires. It had popped free from the plastic tiedowns when it was assembled so I patched it up - no problem. Get some speaker bags or learn to care for these speakers with kid gloves on. 2. The sub/amp weighs a TON. Its 115 pounds. Think about that when trying to lug this alone at 3 am into your trunk. The casters help alot when transporting the speakers atop the sub... I don't regret the Matrix purchase. The folks at GC were great and the system served me so well that I resold it (after a year and a half of use) to my buddy who's getting started in the biz (I upped to (2) QSC K12's). I just wanted you all to know what the good and bad are. Overall, its a good buy.

No Joke Simply The Best Package For The Money

By Big-Dog-Entertainment

from Michigan

I purchased the B-52 Matrix 1000 V2 to start up my mobile DJ Business. I researched till I was blue in the face and after weeks of listening and product research this was my choice. I really appreciate the built in crossover that allows for great bass and great mids and highs. People are amazed at it's quality and sound. I also like the transportation features. It is heavy though. The price and sound quality really make it the best in its catagory.

Best Overall Value

By Texas DJ

from Dallas and Houston, TX

I bought one of these off the floor 2 years ago and it paid for itself within 2 gigs. The is by far the best bass available in a powered system except for the Matrix 2000. I've used it for weddings and outdoor parties. The casters are great for getting the system in and out of a room. However, loading and unloading the sub into and out of a truck will require strength and a good friend or a good ramp. Also, the satellite speakers have a very wide and powerful dispersion range. So, if you expect to use a microphone, I would recommend a an equalizer in order to eliminate feedback and help kill the slight hum this system produces.

My Band Mates have PA Envy!!!

By James

from Richmond, VA

Recently used my Matrix 1000 for our first acoustic gig. We normally have stacks and stacks of equipment, 10,000 watts of stuff w/ cross-overs etc. The boys heard my system and were blown away (and it was only on 3. If not for the fact that we were in a restaurant, I would have showed it them at 11! Great system and easy to use and setup. I wish I had 4 or 5 more so I could daisy-chain them and have one for a monitor system. That would be tight!
