Like its fellow Behringer EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers, the EUROLIVE B208D 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 B208D speaker system cranks out 145W of the cleanest, punchiest audio watts 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 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 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 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 2-way electronic crossover, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, mic preamp, limiter, and two Class-D power amplifiers, yet the overall weight is less than a comparable speaker 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 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 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 over a solid year of research time eliminating pitfalls in this PA system 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. Its no-compromise design means your Behringer EUROLIVE B208D active loudspeaker will deliver full power and incredible fidelity all night long, with no need for rest cycles.

Instant PA system
With just a single EUROLIVE B208D PA speaker 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 PA speakers.

Stereo music system
You can use two EUROLIVE B208D 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 backplates. 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 D Series 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 Behringer EUROLIVE B208D. 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 B208D PA speaker'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 EUROLIVE B208D speaker is two high-current amplifiers with a total output of 220-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.

      Mighty Mite

      By H Blue

      from Charlotte, NC

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      I bought this because I have had good luck with Behringer products in the past. When it showed it was smaller than I expected. I used it as my monitor for a show and it kicked butt. The 200 watts it pushes are true power and it is much less expensive than many speaker/monitors out there now. Our drummer said he heard my monitor clearly behind his set.

      Good stuff

      By Peter

      from Newark, NJ

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      Practical and useful. It is small but delivers the sound you need to hear what you are doing on stage. The only flaw may be the lack of a handle, guess.

      Undistorted Power

      By Lonesome Tom

      from USA

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      I was very impressed with the power and clarity of this 8" model at this price. I'll probably buy another one. An accessory padded gig bag would be great.

      Gets the job done

      By Calley

      from New York, New York

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      This small speaker is as effective as can be with this size- totally great for rehearsals, a monitor, perhaps even small-venue jazz gig as a PA. Not gonna blast away a crowd for a rock or pop gig, so don't have that expectation, but good clear, sound for the size. I'm a through and through JBL Eon lover, but considering the lesser price of this model for the purposes listed above, the small margin of difference makes this a great value. A handle would be nice...

      Solid, powerhouse

      By Dennis Niec

      from Fenton, MI

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      My experiencewith item: I own 6. As an add on to support a house PA, or as a simple smaller PA with a sub for a coffee house, or a quick floor monitor, it's hard to fault the B208D. OK, it's not a Neo super-charged monster outdoor PA, but it is clear, has power, and works well in many applications. The treble and bass knobs may help tune the cab for the environment. It is surprisingly loud for 200 watts. Best in it;s class

      Good sound

      By naz

      from San Francisco, California

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      These little speakers put out a surprising amount of volume for their size. Although they are marketed as monitor speakers, they will easily provide enough sound for a bar or lounge act, and the tone is clear. However, they have no carrying handles and the plastic Behringer controls are breakable.

      Perfect monitor for the club

      By skinnyjimmy

      from hoboken nj

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      I purchased this because I hated carrying my qsc k12 to the club to use as a monitor. This monitor is the perfect size fits in a small bag (little bigger then a shoe box) and it sounds good.. very impressive for its size. i would recommend this for all djs that need a small monitor with great sound

      Great Party Speakers

      By Erik Ross

      from Calgary, AB

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      I purchased these speakers to DJ a wedding in a penthouse in Las Vegas for about 40 people. Great sound and more than loud enough, with lots of room to take it louder. Nice full sound on their own. Paired with a sub these could easily do a much larger party. Great value and amazing size.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      This speaker is awesome!!! Extremely clear, sounds fantastic!! For more information, read on!

      I know a lot about music, sound quality, the technology involved and have a lot of hobbies involving musicI like DJing (I don't DJ professionally because I don't have that specific personality). I have a Denon DJ mixer and a Harbinger v2112 (my first Active Speaker). I am a fan of both active and passive speakers, they both have their perks and downfalls. I really enjoy the Harbinger it is clear, big and loud. HOWEVER, it is ALMOST TOO MUCH for my VAST needs/wants. But I will keep it because of the size, power, and it is my other speaker for my stereo setup.

      This speaker is small, so I can take it anywhere and is easier to lug around than the Harbinger! I thought the sound quality on the Harbinger v2112 was great, but the Behringer speaker is EVEN BETTER! I did NOT know recorded music could sound this good! It literally sounds close to concert level listening. I try to buy the highest quality of music, uncompressed if possible, but some songs on the Harbinger sounds muddy and gross. ALL songs sound amazing on the Behringer! This speaker will be used all around the house but will ultimately complete my stereo system in my bedroom. I am using this speaker, the Denon mixer and the Harbinger for my stereo setup. This speaker completes (is my 2nd speaker for stereo listening) and complements my system so well. It adds so much to the sound quality! The best part is this speaker can be easily taken away from my stereo setup and used for all the other needs/wants I have. Light and simple to use, just plug in and play!

      I wish that when I bought the Harbinger v2112, that I would have bought two of these Behringer speakers.
