Behringer Eurolive B615D 1500-Watt 15" 2-Way Powered PA Speaker
Thanks to their 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 of traditional bi-amped active loudspeakers without all the backbreaking weight. And the sound quality of these lightweight loudspeakers exceeds that of their extremely popular EUROLIVE B215D and B212D systems, plus they've given them even more output power and a significant transducer upgrade.
Due to their high-efficiency design, EUROLIVE B615D and B612D active loudspeakers crank out 1500 of the cleanest, punchiest audio Watts they've ever packed into a compact loudspeaker system. The integrated sound processor provides total system control for dependable protection of the LF/HF transducers, and thanks to the built-in active high-pass filter, you can run them full out without the slightest hint of distortion. In addition, both models feature an Ultra-Low Noise (ULN) Mic/Line input with Level control and 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 EUROLIVE D Series' "Intelligent-Design" merges the best features of active loudspeakers with significantly lower weight through the use of switch-mode power supplies (SMPS) and Class-D amplifier topology.
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 as it is needed. In other words, the amplifier is either fully on or fully off, which significantly reduces the power losses in the output devices. Although they didn't invent Class-D technology, their R&D Department has spent years perfecting their own version with all the benefits of reduced weight and cool running-and none of the drawbacks.
Massive Power to Size Ratio
At the heart of each B615D and B612D are two high-current amplifiers with a combined maximum output of 1500 Watts. These Class-D amps are capable of driving the speakers to their maximum without damage or distortion thanks to their internal active protection circuits. Put simply, these systems will astound you with their massive punch, smooth midrange and articulate top-end.
Let's face it; the transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so they never cut any corners here. While some of their competitors are content to buy off-the-shelf transducers and plug them into their boxes, they custom-design and build ours from scratch. They wind the voice coils, process the paper pulp into cones-and even machine their own back plates. This enables us to control the quality, and frankly to make better components, like the long-excursion 12 and 15" LF transducers and state-of-the-art 1.75" titanium-diaphragm compression drivers they load into each and every B612D/B615D.
Instant PA System
With just a single EUROLIVE D Series loudspeaker and a microphone 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. Place the speaker on a tabletop or stand, and power up. It's just that easy. And if you need more coverage, say for a larger room or audience, you can add more active loudspeakers via the convenient
