Overview

The BEHRINGER MS16 is a compact 2-way stereo speaker system for home studio or multimedia applications and instrument or vocal monitoring.

2 high-power amplifiers drive the 4'' woofers and the high-resolution tweeters. The front-mounted volume control and individual bass and treble controls make accurate sound adjustments a breeze.

2 stereo line inputs (RCA and 1/8'' TRS) allow simultaneous use of 2 stereo sources, so you can play back CDs, MDs or MP3s and use an electric guitar/keyboard at the same time. In addition, the 1/4'' TRS microphone input lets you mix vocals with a stereo track.

Magnetic shielding and compact size make these speakers perfect for placement near video monitors or computer displays.

Features
  • Compact stereo speaker system ideally suited for home studios, multimedia applications, keyboard and vocal monitoring etc.
  • Powerful 4" woofers and high-resolution tweeters powered by 2 - 8 watt amplifiers
  • Dedicated volume, bass and treble controls for more flexibility
  • Stereo RCA inputs for soundcards, keyboards etc. that can be used simultaneously with second stereo source (e.g. CD/MD player) through 1/8" TRS stereo input
  • Separately adjustable 1/4" TRS microphone input mixable with stereo inputs for playback and vocal monitoring applications
  • 1/8" TRS headphone connector with auto-mute loudspeaker function

Behringer has always been my choice for my small recording studio. It is compact and ready to use out of the box. This newly purchased MS16 Active Personal Monitor System is well built, attractive and fits in exactly where needed. You will be surprised at the sound(s) that this system produces. Also, a great choice for computer speakers where space is a consideration. I was extremly pleased by the Guitar Center's accurate description of this product, as well as their service.

I knew these wouldn't produce thumping bass, and that's not what I wanted at all; however, the cheap speakers I do have at least produce the low lows without crackling at modest volume, and that was the problem with these for me. I think you'd call it not having enough headroom to allow it be turned up loud. At lower volumes, though, the high were crisp and the sound was very nice, but not so much that they would replace my headphones and old speakers. I'll try a slightly beefier set next.

WOW.......

By MICHAEL

from DALLAS, TX

Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

didnt expect much out of these BUT; they are better than what i thought... clear sound, well built and with the bass turned up to full power you can get a little bass that you can feel out of them.. not to much distortion in them either.. i use these on my gaming computer and i am now going to get the B2092A 360 watt sub to complement them...

nice for cheap

By chris

Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

very nice sound for a low price. only thing i didnt like is with my recorder it takes like guitar cord ends (bigger jack than say headphones) so i had to buy an adapter so i could run the speakers to my digital recorder.

Made all the difference...

By John Reagan

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

I got these based on other good reviews for my small home demo recording set up. I've had these for several weeks now and could not be more pleased. You can't master through headphones, you have to have some decent monitors and these more than fit the bill for what i'm doing. Sure, studio monitors with a higher price tag might be better but these suit my needs for acoustic home demos very well and have made a big difference in how my finished home demos. They look nice and don't take up much space on my desk either. They're easy to hook up and if you're on a budget I highly recommend these.

Good depending on what you want out of them.

By Ryan Taylor

Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

Ok first off these sounds amazing, im not gonna lie. But they just dont have the bass i really wanted. If your just wanting good speakers that sound amazing then these are perfect, but if your like me and want more bass then id buy the ms20 or ms40.

great speakers for the price

By james hennigan

from Harlingen Texas

Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

bought these speakers over a year ago and ive dropped them, hit them, and ive even ripped a cord straight out of my laptop leaving the jack still plugged into the port. (easily replaceable) even after all of this mistreatment these speakers still go as loud as they did as when i first bought them. the quality of the sound has become a little distorted in my left speaker but im sure if i hadnt dropped it so many times (about 6 times now) it would sound just fine. its also barely noticeable unless played very loud and i go above the mid bass level. which brings me to my next issue these speakers have 3 controls on them basically for the lows highs and volume. at first i thought this would be great. i could really tune my speakers to bring the best out in the music i listen to and make but unfortunately this was not the case. it does help me get a really great quality but realistically, not all speakers will be set to the same settings as mine. so ive had mixed feedback telling me the equalization is a little strange in my music. for example i created a song with heavy bass and i thought it sounded excellent. (keep in mind the lows on my speakers where set very high) and after i had released the song i recieved tons of feedback saying it needed more bass. and when i switched speakers they where right. these behringers had given me an inaccurate hearing of my music. this is really the only drawback i can find with these speakers. they are great for playing live since you can set them up to the perfect settings but to create music, you might want to go with a different set a speakers. a set i have yet to find so unfortunately i cannot offer any advice beyond this point, but personally i believe a set of good speakers with a good subwoofer would be just great. and unfortunately these speakers do not have a subwoofer port or have any way of adding a sub. i would normally give this a 3/5 for recording and producing but for playing and live mixing at a house party or something. its definitely a 5/5

    Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

    I've been using Behringer products for years and have come to believe in them but, WOW, I'm VERY impressed with these monitors!! They have a full, rich sound that I wouldn't think possible out of a speaker this size. I bought them to use in my podcast studio so I need an accurate reproduction of my uploads and I believe I'm getting it with these monitors. I leave the monitor eq at zero and use the mixer eq for any adjustment (Mackie 1402 VLZ3). I have some very good digital recordings of The Carpenters that I use in setting up the eq in live situations. The range and tonal quality of Karen Carpenters voice plus the uncluttered way their music was recorded makes them an excellent tool in setting up an eq.
    These monitors are crisp and clear at any volume level and the sound reproduction is excellent! I work on a tight budget so cost was a consideration but I think I got much more than I paid for with these monitors! I know to many of you 8 watts per side doesn't sound like much but these speakers are well designed to make maximum use of that power, they get really loud at full volume!

    • Re-issued Roland MA-8!!

    Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

    I had a set of Roland MA-8's for almost 20 years. They were reliable, pretty dynamic sound wise, although the bass could definitely get blown out. The passive speaker finally died, in the headphones too, and I was searching for another pair but found that Roland stopped making them. Search search search. Turns out that Behringer started making the same model. Very happy. While they're not top of the line, they are good quality workhorse speakers and my ears are tuned to them, so they work for me!
