Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

We are the Mister Jager Band from Southport N.C. We purchased these speakers in Jan 09 and have gigged out around 10 times We love the sound of these speakers they are awesome We use them by themselves in small to med clubs and put 2 carvin double 18s under them at big shows, with 2000 watts to each of them. and we are rocking and rolling loud and clear for sure, These were a good investment as our sound is awesome. We are considering the Active subs as well. Just waiting for an endorsement deal from B52

Best Bang Period!

By Reynolds Worship Band

from Paragould AR

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I purchased these along with the v2 passive subs, and I can tell you these things are AWESOME! I was going to buy some higher end speakers but for the same money I could go active. I figured what the heck it's worth a shot. I use them every weekend with a five piece worship band and these things are way beyond what I could expect. I have to run them at half power or else the windows rattle and clothing begins to vibrate! Thanks B-52 awesome price on a awesome product!

Affordable Qualiy

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I just purchased a set of the B-52 ACT-1515X. I Engineer Sound for a Female Country Music Kellie Lynne in the Pittsburgh Area. I ran Yamaha and EV speakers for the past 5 years. I can't beleive the difference in the quality of the FOH sound. You hear every note from every instrument and the vocals are amazing. Crisp, Clean reproduction of sound. The first time I used the B-52's was in a large club. I ran the system at about 75% capacity and it was flawlwss. The added headroom really takes out the mud in the highs and the lows are clear and punchy! B-52 has the USA in contention again with foriegn countries using digital speaker technology and affordable for the working band to sound great, night after night. These speakers are heavy duty, bring a big friend or relative to lift these onto your subs. By the way...that will be my next purchase the B-52 ACT-18 SUBS.....I"m that SOLD on the products. Thank you B-52

These things are LOUD!

By Pyro Pete Ferrell

from Almost Heaven West Virginia

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I have owned several nice PA systems in my 50 years of life. I noticed professional sound systems used by Disney on Ice was all Active Speakers. I thought to myself "hey what a great idea". I purchased all powered monitors and then I found the B-52 ACT18X subs and the ACT1515X tops. I can't stress enough the power this system can produce. I am already stashing some money away to double the system for my band. I never liked having to drag a heavy amp rack, and all the cable to connect. I went to a Beringer 32 channel built in effects board too. Now I jumper to the snake with XLR cables, and XLR from the stage box end to the cabinets. QUICK simple set up with results that always has people coming up and complimenting the sound. To summerize, this system is the cat's meow. Quick to set up, all crossovers, compressors, and limiters are internal in the cabinets, and each cabinet is 1000 watts RMS. What more can you ask for!!!

Awesome sounding

By Mike-5N-HD

from Plymouth, MA

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I bought a pair of these about a year ago and I've used them when I'm DJing and for live band sound. They are awesome speakers, very crisp highs and thunderous lows. I love them and they aren't a bad price either. Powered speakers are my favorite, if you don't like using amps, these are great speakers,

Rattle Me

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

We bought a pair of the 52's to replace some older Peaveys we were using. NO COMPARISON. We run guitar, bass, electronic drum kit and vocals and we literally rattle the walls. These cabinets are so clean the band doesn't use monitors. We love em and would like to add another pair for larger venues. We really push them and the built in circitry handles everything somethly.

Best Bang for your Buck right here!!

By Yuck!!

from Provo, UT

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I've been on a quest for a great PA since I learned all about them back two years ago. I bought PV-215's and Behringer amp and cables galore. Needless to say this was barely enough for band practice. 3000 dollars wasted later my dad bought a pair of these. These are extremely loud for the money and surprisingly clear and crisp. Lots of headroom. What?s better no annoying power amps to carry around and wire up. I mean these things weigh a lot but they are worth it. I now use my old power amp and speakers for monitor and they work surprisingly great. Thanks B-52 you make a great speaker.

Amazing

By Mag Moosen

from Bolton, CT

Comments about B-52 ACT-1515X Active Dual 15 Inch Two Way 1000 Watts Speaker:

I have a pair of these with the ACT18X and the ACT18XS to match. I normally play in large school gyms and these fill the whole room right up. Even for smaller gigs, I leave out the subs and these still shake the floor. Although they are quite large and heavy, but that's to be expected. I have and always will love B-52.
