OVERVIEW

High-performance active 1400W 15" PA subwoofer with built-in stereo crossover.

BEHRINGER's EUROLIVE B1500D-PRO 15" active subwoofer is packed with an incredible array of truly professional features to provide you with extreme levels of low-end punch while also giving you the kind of definition and clarity typically reserved for much larger systems.

Class-D amplifiers (with switch-mode power supplies) drive the custom-designed low frequency drivers for sonically optimized output. The B1500D-PRO also provides you with a much better power-to weight ratio than other 1400W active subwoofers.

Put simply, this cool-running system is much lighter, making it ultra-easy to transport and set up. Its no-compromise design means you get amazingly-deep, chest-pounding bass that will keep the party going all night long. Buy a pair to add a more complete bottom-end for your active full-range speaker system.

What is Class-D Technology?
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 power losses from the output devices given off as heat. Less heat means this amp doesn't need a massive heat sink, which keeps it lighter. The B1500D-PRO's design delivers full power with incredible fidelity all night long, without the need for lengthy rest cycles.

When used in conjunction with switching-mode power supplies, which don't require huge and heavy transformers, BEHRINGER's Class-D amplifiers provide tremendous dynamic punch and superior fidelity.

Custom-Designed Transducers
Since the transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, BEHRINGER custom-designs and builds their transducers from scratch. Not only do they wind their own voice coils, they process the paper pulp into cones and even machine their own backplates.

Take control
The B1500D-PRO features balanced XLR inputs and outputs, as well as balanced XLR THRU jacks for connecting additional enclosures. A BOOST FREQUENCY knob targets a boost frequency between 45Hz and 90Hz. Flick the BOOST switch to give your selected frequency a +6 dB boost. These subs also feature a HIGH CUT dial to control the upper corner frequency for the subwoofer's amplifier. The HIGH CUT dial does not affect the THRU signals, only signals directed to the subwoofer (however, it does affect the signals sent out through the Output sockets of the subwoofer to reach the full-range speakers). A LEVEL knob controls the input gain, and the PHASE switch reverses output phase to compensate for frequency cancellation between the subwoofer and satellite speakers. LEDs show operational status at a glance, including power, signal present, and input overloads.

If you're engineering sound for a small jazz combo in a small club, the B1500D-PRO might be all the speaker you need.

FEATURES
  • 1400W Class-D amplifier with comprehensive over-excursion, thermal, and clip limit protection

More bang for your buck

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B1500D-PRO Active 15" Subwoofer:

I purchased two of these Subwoofers from you guys about three months ago. And let me say I was a little skeptical of Behringer's quality. Not anymore, these things are amazing, the low ends is incredible and you don't even have to push them. When DJing I have to play a wide variety of music and they handle it all. You won't regret giving these a try. Sound and appearance and dependability is first quality. And the sales staff was first rate, thanks guys for all your help.

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B1500D-PRO Active 15" Subwoofer:

Love these subs. Behringer has continued to impress me over the last 5 years or so. I pair these with the b815neo's when I need more bass for larger rooms. I bought one and then bought another about a year later. They really add some kick to the show, I thought about getting the 18 inchers but these are just heavy enough, I can lift one of these on my own but I only want to lift enough to get it on the dolly or cart. The sound is very tight and I have no complaints, especially since I bought a level 4 that was not supposed to sound good and was dented. The only problem was a dent in the front grill which was easily removed. It was only about 3 months old and looked and performed like new after the minor repair. These pound all night and I usually only turn it up 1/4 of the way. I have been a DJ for over 25 years. Speakers have come a long way, I don't miss the amp racks!

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B1500D-PRO Active 15" Subwoofer:

Great deal for price. Sound is tight. If you're looking for good clean power on a budget, this is your baby. I need to buy more.

However, it's a short throw cab, so if you're going outdoors, you better have 6 to 8 of these, at least. It's heavy as sin, but durable.

CONTRARY TO THE DESCRIPTION LISTED - the high cut does NOT affect the high outputs, PER BEHRINGER'S DOCUMENTATION. It is a high cut filter, not a cross over. The tops are cut at 100hz, period. So, you may as well run the adjustment a touch over 100hz.

    I added one to my PA setup to give the bass drum of my drum kits a little more thump.

    It is heavy, what else could it be?, so get some casters on it ASAP!

    Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B1500D-PRO Active 15" Subwoofer:

    First of all, I was sent a used, broken sub from Musicians Friend in a plain cardboard box with no packing material. It was obviously broken and used since the missing corners that were broken off the sub weren't even in the box! Also there were monitor feet marks on the top of the sub from the previous owner. I am still shocked that they sent this to me after I paid for a new one.
    Now, as far as the review. After I received a new sub in the correct packaging from "different" dealer, I was very satisfied with the preformance of this sub. It will be hard to beat it in this price range.

    The sound quality is off the charts. I never push my speakers, and you don't need to push this one. The durable housing makes these speakers easy to transport without damage. The controls are all tight and accurate. When using the boost feature the sound does not distort. These speakers make things in the room move, but there is no vibration in inside the speaker. I am very pleased. This product offers great quality and value. The staff at MF is most helpfull. Ships fast too. MF offers 45 day return policy. After spending many thousands with MF - I have no need to return anything.

THe sound quality is great and has a nice punchy bass put the boost button on and the sound tranforms and the bass starts to really boom. Can't wait to use these at my next gig. Now I dont have to lug my dual 18 subs around.YES!!!!

    These are going to save me on setup time and also save some space in my car. Great Sound and Build quality. It's heavy......

    I purchased this amp to get the full spectrum of sound out of my Yamaha P-155 digital piano. I have two Behringer K1800FX amps running stereo, which supply the high/midrange. The EUROLIVE 1500D-PRO supplies the lows and loads of power. I'm totally pleased with the results. The EUROLIVE 1500D-PRO is a phenomenal amp that I would recommend to anyone who needs to not only cover the whole spectrum of their sound, but also who needs the power to meet their needs.
