Overview

The 125W Behringer EUROLIVEF1220A Active Monitor has its own EQ and volume. You not only have control of the output, you can also tweak the highs, mids, and lows for a clear, true sense of your sound. It's a proven fact that the better you can hear yourself, the better you'll play-isn't it time you got active?

Great sound takes guts
Inside these Behringer loudspeakers is the equivalent of a 2-way electronic crossover, a graphic equalizer, parametric equalizer, a mic preamp, and two power amplifiers! A 12" long excursion driver delivers deep, punchy lows while a 1" titanium-diaphragm compression driver gives you clean, crisp highs. They all work together with 125 watts of handling power and don't need adjustments or a degree in sound engineering.

Triumphant transducers
Every stitch of these loudspeakers is built to deliver, but the fact is that their transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part you actually hear. While some manufacturers are okay with putting off-the-shelf transducers in their boxes, we custom-design and build ours from scratch. Not only do we wind our own voice coils, we grow the trees that are processed into the paper pulp that becomes the cones. We even machine the frames and backplates. Behringer's quality is truly under control.

Speaking of control¦
The Behringer F1220A Powered Monitor doesn't just sound great. It also gives you instant control of your monitor mix, even in mid-performance-something passive monitors simply cannot deliver! Need more volume? Turn the LEVEL dial until the desired volume is reached without activating the CLIP LED. Sound too bassy or trebly? Just reach down and use the three-band EQ (High, Mid, Low) to tailor a rich, exciting sound. We've even given you a line of defense against live sound's greatest enemy. If you're experiencing feedback, just press the Feedback Filter switch, then slowly turn the Frequency dial until feedback is eliminated.

Anytime, anywhere you choose
This Behringer monitor doesn't just cater to musicians. It's excellent for anyone with a need to be heard! With just one F1220A and a microphone or MP3 player, you can set up an instant sound system. Thanks to the built-in preamp section, you can connect a dynamic mic directly to the F1220A and raise and lower the volume with the Level control. Suddenly, it's showtime in no time at all. The F1220 also has a 35mm socket so you can easily mount it on a pole for use in a PA system.

Awesome sound, unbelievable value
The Behringer F1220APowered Monitor is designed to give your next crazed rant/public announcement/synthesizer recital exactly the monitor or PA sound you want with minimal prep time. Suddenly a monitor sound that once was only available in a recording studio is available in virtually any live setting. Loaded with a slew of incredible features but not loaded down by a heavy price tag.

Behringer got it right with this one. In the past I used a guitar amp as my monitor but didn't like how it colored the sound from my POD. Replacing it has made all the difference in the world. This thing kicks butt. I usually get something new and enjoy it because I review the heck out of it but I also have at least one thing that could be better. Not so with this monitor, it is exactly what I need and I couldn't be happier. The bass is beefy, the monitor itself is solid as a tank but not so heavy that your back is going to break. I would buy two if this one got stolen!

I have owned a couple of these Behringer F1220A montiors for about three years and they worked great until last week when I touched one (just to turn it on) and a bit of static electricity fried the board. I took it in to the local dealer and they said they were amazed that there was no protection built into these. The weird thing is that 3 days later the other one just stopped working. It's a bummer because I really liked them. For a 125w speaker they could really get the sound out and worked well as a stage monitor. I just can't afford to buy one every couple years.

    Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE F1220A 12" 125W Powered Monitor:

    Very versatile as a powered monitor or main for small-to-medium events. Sturdy. I've used it as a main speaker for small receptions in a good-sized ballroom, running 2 vocal and 2 instrumental mikes through it from a 4-channel mixer as well as background music from a CD player. Am impressed by the clarity of tone, anti-feedback filter, and power for gigs of this size. Would recommend highly and buy again. NOTE: It mounts horizontally on a speaker stand. There's a 300-watt version if you need more power in a similar package.

        It works OK, good sound, much past 1:00 it breaks up but by then it is fairly loud. I want to replace it with something smaller with more power so we have have been abusing it for over three years at gigs 7-10 nights a month hoping it will blow up or break or something but it's still going strong. We call it the catfish because you can't kill it.

          something clunking around inside when i got this refurbished f1220a and when sending it back realized the weight was 46 lbs and spec weight was 39.8 lbs. seems like maybe the tweeter was replaced and the old one was left in there.

            I've only had the monitor for a couple of gigs and so far it has performed very well. It has great sound quality, nice features and is well built. Depending on how it holds up I may purchase another one.

            Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE F1220A 12" 125W Powered Monitor:

            My band just loves this powered monitor. It was purchased to sit in back by our drummer so he can hear the vocals. Works great. I have a powered mixer but the monitor out needs its own power so this F1220A Powered Monitor is perfect. I use 2 Behringer B212XL speakers for my mains coming out of the left channel and 2 Behringer VP1220F speakers for monitors coming of of the right channel. Then we use the Behringer F1220A Powered monitor coming out of the monitor aux out for the drummer in the back sound is awesome.

              Very clear sound. I like the equalizers and the feedback control. If I needed
              another one I would not hesitate to purchase it. Much better than the powered Kustoms. Spend the extra money and get the better sound. MF is great! As always, the best customer service and fast delivery.

                I ordered this monitor to use in an acoustic duo situation. We have 2 vocal mics, one acoustic guitar and a Porchboard running thru a Bose T1 mixer in front of a L1 Compact. The singer was having trouble hearing the guitar so I got this monitor to help. After using the monitor on the last 3 gigs, it has performed beautifully. We end up dialing in some of the Porchboard, both vocals and of course the acoustic guitar. There is plenty of headroom and the sound is just what we needed. It is simple to operate...even simple enough that my singer figured out on her own how to turn it down! I would recommend this to any similar gig situation. In a raging rock environment, you might want to choose a more powerful monitor, but for us, this was the perfect choice!

                  Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE F1220A 12" 125W Powered Monitor:

                  We replaced our very old, very heavy, very awesome Yamaha 15" floor monitors with these. We chose these because of their size, light weight, and because they were powered. I don't know why anyone would need a more powerful version of this speaker for a floor monitor. These have plenty of power and plenty of headroom for our use in a 3-piece rock band. They have a pretty natural sound to me, but the onboard EQ is functional if you wanna tweak it. GREAT MONITORS...especially for the price.

                  I have not owned them long enough to comment on their durability, but I suspect we will more than get out moneys worth out of em.
