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.

At the heart of each Behringer EUROLIVE B212D loudspeaker is two, high-current amplifiers with a total output of 550 watts. These amplifiers are capable of driving the speakers to their maximum with no distortion and without speaker damage, thanks to active, internal protection circuits.

Due to the high-efficiency design, the EUROLIVE B212D cranks out 550W 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.

Behringer's EUROLIVE D Series 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
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. 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.

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.

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.

I really like the sound of these. However I've owned a pair of these for awhile - after about 3 years the bass cut out on one of the two I own. Now I've got a $375 brick.

I've purchased just about every monitor avaliable in Canada and this one is by the far the greatest purchase I have ever made. It exceeds all my expectations and I never believed my sound would finally be as amazing as it is now.
