Product Details

Behringer B215D Eurolive Active 550W 15" 2-Way PA Speaker

Finally, Great-Sounding Active Loudspeakers That Won't Break Your Back or Bank Account!
Thanks to Behringer's revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology and internal switch-mode power supplies, EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers provide a much better power-to-weight ratio than competing active speakers. Put simply, you get all the power without the back-breaking weight. And the sound quality of these lightweight loudspeakers exceeds that of our extremely popular EUROLIVE B215A system.

Due to its high-efficiency design, it cranks out 550 of the cleanest, punchiest audio watts you've ever heard from a compact loudspeaker 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, all four models feature 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 back-breaking 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 loudspeaker, making it difficult for a single user to heave all that mass onto the top of a speaker stand.

Behringer's 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 each 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 overall weight is less than comparable loudspeaker systems! 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 our R&D Department has been working for years to perfect our own version with all the benefits of reduced weight and cool running, and none of the drawbacks. That's why we invested over 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). And why we spent an equally long time testing individual components to ensure they will stand up to the rigors of the real world.

Instant PA System
With just a single D Series loudspeaker 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 even use two D Series enclosures for stereo playback of your MP3, CD or old-skool 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. Voilà, instant party!

Marvelous Monitoring
Thanks to their trapezoidal design, these cabinets can be laid on their side providing the ideal angle for onstage monitor wedge applications. Hookup is simple, 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
Let's face it; the transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so we don't cut any corners. While some of our competitors are content to buy off-the-shelf transducers and plug them into their boxes, we custom-design and build our transducers from scratch. Not only do we wind our own voice coils, we process the paper pulp into cones and even machine our own backplates. This enables us to control the quality, and frankly, make better components, like the long-excursion LF transducers and state-of-the-art 1.35" compression drivers we deploy in each and every EUROLIVE enclosure.

Low Frequency Response
The EUROLIVE D Series was 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. Keep in mind that bass response varies according to LF transducer size, so the larger the speaker, the more bass you will be able to generate.

Processor Controlled Output
Dynamic processing is one of the best ways to maximize output without sacrificing sound quality. The D Series' 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 D Series loudspeaker are two high-current amplifiers with a total output of 550 watts for the B215D. It's 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!

Behringer B215D Eurolive Active 550W 15" 2-Way PA Speaker
Behringer B215D Eurolive Active 550W 15" 2-Way PA Speaker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get your monies worth.Let's face it. A two way speaker with a 15" driver is less than ideal no matter who makes it. 15 inches isn't very nimble. You get a touch more low end with these than the 12" version at the expense of clarity in the mid section. Plop the B215D on a stand away from the wall and the low end drops fairly quickly. That being said, I have no regrets with them. The play incredibly loud. They just don't dig deep. I'm only a year into abusing them but they're holding up just fine. I run these as mains and use a Behringer B1800D-PRO for the low end (and that thing is a beast). If I had to do it over again, I would have bought the 12" version to run along with the 1800.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dont let the price fool youI ran sound for a church for 2 month's, they used mackie srm -450's. I would put these up against the mackies any day. These are a excellent value for the cost. I would recomend a sub, even with the 15" version of these, dont get me wrong, they put out nice bass but when you add a sub, it sounds awesome. The ONLY beef I have with these is that they do not have a 1/4" line out, XLR only. other than that, if you are wanting these for DJing, stage monitors or a small PA. Dont hesitate you will not be disapointed.

Behringer B215D

need to know what kind of tweeter in the Behringer B215D need to use to replace
Asked by: dj quick
You will either have to contact Behringer or pull the original horn out to see what type it is. If it has a threaded screw-type mount our best seller as a replacement would be part number 264-270.

Class D amp

why is it printed on my B215D "Class B" when all the Ads say Class D amplifier
Asked by: DJ Code
It does say FC class B. I would say that it is the device rating of resistance to fire ignition and a federally required marking.
