B52 MATRIX-2000 3-Piece Powered Speaker System *

Discontinued
B-52 MATRIX-2000 Powered Speaker System

The B-52 Matrix 2000 is a complete sound reinforcement solution consisting of a pair of 12" 2-way speakers and an 18" subwoofer, equipped with a built-in 1200 watt 3-channel amplifier. The 3-channel amplifier houses all the electronics required to run the system including electronic crossovers, equalization and compressors. The electronic circuity is fine tuned to match all of the components for the best possible sound. The MATRIX 2000 is designed for easy operation, as you do not need to tweak frequencies or finesse levels. To set-up the system's components, simply connect the XLR right and left signal cables, speaker cables and power cord and you?re ready to go!

The 18" subwoofer enclosure is divided into two separate compartments. The front chamber serves as the cabinet for the cast-framed, 4" voice coil, 18" subwoofer. The rear chamber houses all of the system's electronic circuitry, which includes the amplification for all three components, power supply, compressor and preamps. The 18" subwoofer has a power handling capability of 600 watts and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms.

The 12" 2-way speakers are loaded with B-52 custom designed 12" loudspeakers and 1" titanium diaphragm compression drivers, mounted to 900 x 400 constant directivity horns. The speakers are designed to be pole mounted, sit as stage monitors and have built-in (3/8" ? 16 TPI) flying hardware for permanent installations. The front panel of the 2-way speakers are convex so as to fit perfectly on to the subwoofer's front grill. Each 2-way speaker has the power handling capability of 300 watts and a nominal impedance of 4 ohms.

To transport, simply move the subwoofer onto its casters and place the included cover over the subwoofer. Next, pull the included covers over the satellite speakers and close the zippers. It is recommended that you transport the subwoofer and satellites separately. You may transport all the components at the same time by placing the satellite speakers onto the subwoofer's front panel facing down. Secure the satellite speakers to the subwoofer with the included locking strap by fastening it to the bar handles on the side of the subwoofer cabinet.

Not the best bass i've heard from an 18 inch cabinet, but for the price you cant go wrong!!! I had the Matrix-1000's and sold them to buy the 2000's. Def worth the extra cash if you can swing it.

this thing slams, at the bar i dj at it can never be turned up all the way since its so loud, when used at my house the walls move, not a little, you can see down the wall and its bulging in and out. It is very well built, and with that comes weight, the sub has wheels but if you plan on taking it up stairs bring a friend because there is no way one person can do it with out breaking there back...

    I am a local DJ in the middle Georgia area( The Dirty South). We are known for getting crunk and basically rattling the walls of clubs. I first ordered this system about a year ago and I have gotten rave reviews from everyone that hears it! Now I am the proud owner of 2 Matrix 2000s and the sky is the limit! Very easy set up with maximum sound and quality! I go to a gig, set up quick, play, get the money and leave with no hassles! This is what mobile music is all about!!

            I bought these about two years ago. I use the Matrix system for all my parties. A DJ friend of mine recommended another brand. I am glad that I got these instead. It has the best sound and will rock the walls of most buildings. B-52's rock. I will purchase another set to add on for larger parties.

              I am a mobile disc jockey, and was a leary about the weight of the system and I don't usually buy things without listening to it first, but this time I ate those words and am glad I did! I do bars, and a campground and have gotten a lot of compliments on the new sound system and am now working on the new light show!!

              Comments about B52 MATRIX-2000 3-Piece Powered Speaker System *:

              I have used this system for the past year and have not found a room that it could not fill with sound. The X-over point for the satellites is a little high but the growl of the subwoofer more than makes up for it.
              The system is easy enough to set up 5 distict cables and can really stand up to the demands of a working DJ. The covers really help to keep the cabinets looking good and pro like. But, if you have to go upstairs or lift into a truck better bring some help.
              If you really want to feel the Matrix try running a bass enhancer like a BBE 366.
              Despite the weight the Matrix series of active speakers will deliver.

                This is the best thing that I have spent money on. The sound is great. The bass is floor shaking. I play 3 to 4 times a month at clubs and do alot of weddings. Everybody is blown away from the sound that comes out of this system. It is everything you need and more!!

                I bought an open box system at a good discount back in January. Three gigs later and its paid for itself. Do yourself a favor..buy this system. I'm booked up all thru the summer. :)

                Subwoofer is a little on the bulky and heavy side. But it still fits inside a Yukon/Expedition with the seats down. Can even put in your mixer, cables, stands, lights and cd cases.

                It looks great and the most important features, easy set-up and sound quality. Look no further, best buy for the buck.

                  Is it nessesary to have the outputs to the other speakers to be connected without hurting the sub-woofer itself? or can I just hook up one side just to get the sub-woofer sound on it's own?
