OVERVIEW

A complete, easy-transport, easy set-up system.

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 Speaker System comes with 2 10" 2-way powered satellites and a dedicated powered 15" subwoofer. The Matrix-1000 V2 has a built-in 3-channel 700W power amplifier, 3 independent volume controls, electronic crossover with equalization, and VCA compressor.

The circuitry is designed and fine-tuned to integrate all components for the best possible sound. There is no need to tweak or finesse settings on a crossover or compressor to make your system sound great. Simply roll the system into place on its heavy duty casters, plug in the AC, connect the two speaker cables, run two XLR cables to your mixer and you're ready to go

Built-in 3-channel amplifier
The 15" subwoofer enclosure is divided into two separate compartments. The front chamber serves as the cabinet for the 15" subwoofer. The rear chamber houses all of the system's electronic circuitry, which includes the amplification for all three components, power supply and preamps. The 15" subwoofer has a power handling capability of 400 watts and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms.

10" satellite speakers

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 satellites are loaded with a custom designed 10" speaker and 1" titanium diaphragm compression driver. The "horn" is a 90 x 60 elliptical waveguide that can be rotated 90 to optimize the dispersion pattern to best suit your particular application. These versatile B-52 speakers are pole-mountable and can sit as stage monitors. They also include 3/8"”16 tpi flying hardware for small venue permanent installations. The rounded front of the satellite speaker is a perfect fit for the convex face of the subwoofer, allowing you to stack, roll and transport the entire Matrix-1000 V2 in and out of a venue in record time.

Transporting the system

To transport the B-52 Matrix-1000 V2, simply set the subwoofer on its casters and place the satellite speakers on to the subwoofer's front panel, facing down. Fasten the satellites with the included locking strap using the handles on either side of the subwoofer cabinet. Place the included cover over the entire PA speaker system and you're ready to move the Matrix-1000 V2 with ease.

I bought this sometime around 2006 as I bought an electronic drumset (Roland TD20) and our band was going to start gigging. I ran my drums through this with the sub next to me and the speakers above and behind me. Loud and clear. Never had any issues with whatsoever. I never had to run through the mains.

This system is solid and road worthy. Mine look like they have been used for 7 years, but they still sound brand new. Seriously, I treated them like they were equipment, not delicate electronics. This thing will take the abuse.

I even used these to DJ a school dance and it pushed enough sound to fill the entire gym.

The ONLY negative I have to offer is the strap that holds the speakers to the sub for transport had weak plasic connectors that broke almost immediately.

Use this for FIXED applications ONLY. Rolling the sub around on it's supplied wheels has rendered the sub worthless 2 times now. No abuse whats so ever. That's what was so shocking about the whole ordeal. One side of the channels just stopped after moving around. Cost of repairs for this can add up to the price of a new set.. Just be aware.

    Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

    I am not sure if they even make this amp any more but I have owed one for well over 10 years. This PA is still working perfectly as the day I bought it. OK, now that that's out of the way. I have used this system for live performances in a number of church's out side gigs and have never had any power issues with it not being loud enough or distorted. Would I ever buy another one?

      dont buy this

      No value at all, just a big pile of junk.
      I bought 2 of these. The first was blown in a few months. The second blew after about a year. Junk.

      Superb sound quality in a single package!

      By Winzlo-CSa5U

      from Minnesota

      Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

      I first bought this system about 8 months ago, and set it up in my project studio to monitor drums. I also have 2 B-52 LX1515 club PA speakers which I use for the house. When I decided to use the Matrix 1000 as my primary mobile DJ PA system, I was a little unhappy with the muddy sound from the 10" speakers. However, adding a BBE sonic maximizer took this system right to the top for me. I now use this system for all my DJ and drum monitor gigs, and the LX-1515's are strictly for reinforcement in larger venues.The review about the controls breaking is true. It would be better to transport the entire system on a hand truck to ensure that the controls do not get bumped. But, having it on casters is great when moving it around the area where it will be used.I've been complimented so much on the sound quality by customers, I'm thinking of selling my LX-1515's and getting a second Matrix 1000 so I can really canvas larger stages/venues.

      Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

      This is an awesome system. Got mine just this Saturday with stands and cables everyhting all for $500. Only used 3 times. Since I'm by myself I can't trasnport it as one unit; I have to place the small speakers inside the truck then lift the woofer up onto the bed of the truck and vice versa to unload. I agree with the other person who said that the controls are at the bottom of the unit can easily be damaged if going up on stairs or uneven pavement. Overall, I always wanted one and finally got one but for way less.

      Good System, Some Design Flaws

      By Huckster

      from San Francisco

      Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

      I think this is a great system for the money. It sounds good and has some power. The downside to this unit is the fact that the controls face the floor. I consider this to be an obvious design flaw. You have to be very careful moving it around! It's very incredibly easy to smash the controls if you're lifting over stairs or if the floor you are rolling the unit on is uneven. Also, it's a very heavy unit, so you need two people to lift it. Otherwise, no problems :)

      Fantastic!!!

      Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

      I bought this two days ago, plugged it in to my computer and began pumping my Kansas collection through it. I am astounded at the sound quality and the low speaker hiss even at high volumes. I might even be able to use it as my main system for small outdoor venues.B52 was thinking about the user when they made this product. It took 10 minutes to set the system up (including plugging in speakers and finding outlets in my house), and the transportability is easy even though this beast weighs ~150 lbs. The only thing I dont like is having the control panel on the bottom, if you drop it on an edge or something, you'll definately break the knobs off. The whole panel seems to be pretty durable though, and I like the case. Way to go B52!!!

      I have tried roland amps, JBL eons etc but nothing comes close to what this thing can do! I play a Roland td 20 with this and if you own a Vdrum, please please get this. This makes the drums sound like they were meant to!Listening to MP3s on it is great. The low from the subwoofer is just amazing. Dont think anymore - this is the system you need.
