Overview

Like its fellow EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers, the EUROLIVE B212D PA speaker system features Behringer's special Class D amplifier technology and internal switch-mode power supply to provide a much better power-to-weight ratio than other active speakers. To put it simply, you get all the power without the backbreaking weight.

Due to the high-efficiency design, the EUROLIVE B212D cranks out 450W of the cleanest, punchiest audio you've ever heard from a compact PA speaker 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, it features an ultralow-noise mic/line input with LEVEL control and a dedicated two-band EQ (bass/treble) for easy control.

Intelligent by design
One of the coolest things about active loudspeakers is the lack of backbreaking 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 audio speaker, making it difficult for a single user to heave all that mass onto the top of a speaker stand.

Behringer's EUROLIVE D Series' "Intelligent-Design" merges the best features of active loudspeakers with significantly lower weight by using switch-mode power supplies and Class D amplifier topology. Hidden deep inside the enclosure is the equivalent of an active two-way electronic crossover, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, mic preamp, limiter, and 2 Class D power amplifiers, yet the overall weight is less than a comparable loudspeaker system. 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 A/B 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 simple 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 their R&D department has been working for years to perfect their own version with all the benefits of reduced weight and cool running, yet without the drawbacks. That's why they invested more than 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). It's also why they 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, these 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 loudspeakers run cooler and don't require huge and heavy heat sinks. The resulting speakers systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up. BEHRINGER's no-compromise design means your EUROLIVE B212D active speaker system will deliver full power and incredible fidelity all night long, with no need for rest cycles.

Instant PA system
With just a single EUROLIVE B212D PA 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 use two EUROLIVE B212D enclosures for stereo playback of your MP3, CD, or old-school 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, and you've got an instant party.

Marvelous monitoring
Thanks to their trapezoidal design, the D Series cabinets can be laid on their side providing the ideal angle for onstage monitor wedge applications. Hookup is simple too, 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
The transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so Behringer didn't cut any corners. They custom-design and build their transducers from scratch. Not only do they wind their own voice coils, they process the paper pulp into cones and even machine their own back-plates. This enables Behringer to control the quality and make better components, like the long-excursion LF transducers and state-of-the-art 1.35" compression drivers deployed in each EUROLIVE speaker enclosure.

Low-frequency response
The EUROLIVE D Series speakers were 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.

Accurate non-fatiguing midrange and treble
Even if your particular application doesn't include booming bass, you'll love the sheer accuracy of the EUROLIVE B212D system. Over a year of design went into an 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, the D Series loudspeakers are able to articulate complex harmonic details.

Processor controlled output
Dynamic processing is one of the best ways to maximize output without sacrificing sound quality. The EUROLIVE B212D's 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 Behringer EUROLIVE B212D loudspeaker is two high-current amplifiers with a total output of 550 watts. 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.

I am mobile DJ, I dont have too much experience and I dont know a lot about speakers, I wanted to buy two powered speakers easy to carry. I found this speaker as the greatest option for me and my wallet! Mackie and JBL are great companies and YES...they do sound amazing...but the B212D has a great sound and its cheaper. I bought two of these and so far...they put a big smile on my face everytime I use them!... GREAT BUY!

I bought a pair of these for my son, who is trying to start up a DJ biz. Sadly, within two months, the tweeter in one speaker quit working. Don't know if it's the tweeter itself, or the cross-over circuit. I was on hold trying to get to Behringer customer service for more than an hour. Even when I got thru, it took several follow up calls and emails to get an "RMA number" so that I could get the speaker repaired under warranty. Well, that meant getting the speaker to an Behringer authorized service center at my own expense. Happily, there is on in my town, although quite a drive away. When I got there, carrying the speaker, and complained about the difficulty in getting the RMA, they laughed and said I'd actually gotten off easy. Then they said the company was notorious for not providing them with the parts they need to make the repairs. "Sometimes it takes them months," they said. They also indicated they see lots and lots of Behringer speakers and other products with defects and problems. Long story short, the speaker has been languishing for ten weeks at the repair shop, and they still haven't gotten the part. This is an oh-too-familiar example of a firm that offers a great up-front price and clearly doesn't care about building a relationship with their customers, standing behind their warranties, or even pretending to act in an ethical manner. I won't ever buy anything from them again, and invite you to consider my experience when making a purchase choice.

Good to use as PA

By Mimi

from NJ

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

We used only one of these for our vocalist in a hotel ballroom with approx. 150 people attending. The sound was clear and carried throughout the entire room even when our full band was playing...kb, drums, bass, sax & guitar. If you need a good vocal speaker for a small/med sized room, buy this.

Small package...big punch

By Soundwerx Karaoke

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

We've been using these speakers for almost a year. They don't disappoint! For small clubs/bars, these will get the job done. Lots of sound w/ no distortion. We usually run the 12"s with a subwoofer for more thump, but since we do karaoke, don't really NEED it. Great by themselves, with a sub, or as monitors for the 15" version

Good for the price

By DJ Headliner

from Washington, DC

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

I just picked up this speaker and put it through its paces. While it's about as good as you can expect a sub-300 dollar system to be, there are several things in the description that could use clearing up. First off, the 550 watts listed is actually the peak wattage - the highest continuous output that this speaker can produce is actually around 280 watts before it starts to break up and sound horrible. Secondly, while this can be largely fixed with some quick EQ tweaks, this is not a good speaker for clear, crisp sound as the bass is extremely boomy, which causes the signal to get slightly muddier. All in all, it's good for the price but as usual you can do better if you're willing to spend more

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

I used two of these with my self powered sub in the center, turned the bass down on the PA's and turned up the kick on my sub.....Man, if you're doing a private gig anywhere it sounds great. Perfect buy, but a sub is recommended.

Extraordinarily happy with this speaker.

By Mike

from Akron Ohio

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

I actually use this speaker as my guitar amp. Since I play through a Line 6 Pod XT Live amp modeler, I needed something with an absolute flat response, and be crisp and clear enough to hear the subtle differences in the digital cabinet models. I also needed power. Lots of it. I had been using a pair of Alesis M1 Active studio monitors for playing in the home studio or occasionally in a very small venue, and the response was perfect. I had the cleanest signal I could want, but studio monitors are not made for a large stage. Guitar amps were out since they color the signal, I tried a keyboard amp which was a disaster so I made up my mind to buy a powered PA speaker. When I went to Guitar Center, they let me play my rig through the various speakers on the showroom floor there. I played a JBL 15" first, which seemed pretty decent. Definitely had the power. Next I played through the Mackie Thump and it sounded as if someone sliced the high end right out of it. Then I played a Behringer B212D. The clarity of the sound as compared to the JBL and Mackie was so completely obvious from the first chord that I knew I was going to walk out of the store with that speaker. Even the salesman was surprised at the difference, especially considering that Behringer is considered 'lower end'. In any case, I've since used it at many gigs and have been absolutely thrilled with the performance. I can crank it past the level of human tolerance without a hint of feedback and there is almost zero line noise at those high volumes. I do have to turn the bass way down on the EQ as it can 'muddy up' with the bass player. But other than its perfect for what I use it for. If I had one miniscule complaint it would be that it should have a power indicator light on the front so I could tell if it was on or not as I use it on its side as a wedge.

Good sound. Needs more bass.

By Gerald Gola

Comments about Behringer Eurolive B212D Active PA Speaker System:

I just purchased two of these B212D's for use in my home studio and also for playing small club/ bar venues. I am happy with the overall sound and volume however, They are lacking the thump. So, If you are looking for a clean sound for mids and highs or general DJ work, these are great. Not too big or heavy. If you want that bumping drive in the club. Definately add a subwoofer.
