OVERVIEW

Put the sound right where you want it.

The Eurolive B205D is an active 150W PA/monitor speaker that is ideal for vocal or keyboard monitoring, multi-media presentations, and home recording studio applications.

Thanks to its Class-D amplifier technology and internal switchmode power supplies, the B205D speaker not only sounds great, it weighs considerably less than most competing active speakers. It pumps out 150 of the cleanest, punchiest watts you've ever heard from a compact loudspeaker, and you can link additional systems via a handy Thru socket. A built-in mixer provides 3 input channels, including a switchable instrument-ready input (no DI required), and also features a dedicated 3-band EQ (bass/mid/treble) for simple, yet effective tonal control.

FEATURES
  • Multi-purpose, 150W, active speaker for vocal and keyboard monitoring, multimedia, press conferences and home recording studio applications
  • Class-D amplifier technology
  • 5-1/4" premium-quality, full-range neodymium driver
  • Ultra-low noise 3-channel mixer with 3-band EQ
  • 2 "Invisible" Mic Preamps with phantom power for condenser microphones and one instrument-ready input (no DI required)
  • Dedicated stereo input for keyboards, MP3, CD, etc.
  • XLR ''through'' connector with mic/line switch for linking more B205Ds
  • Mic stand integration system for use with stand and boom
  • Integrated limiter for system control and speaker protection
  • Internal switch-mode power supply for noise-free audio, superior transient response and very low power consumption
  • Super-tough, impact-resistant enclosure with integrated top carry handle

I have used a pretty wide range of monitor cabinets over the years and decided to give a small personal unit a try.

My Rhythm guitarist liked the way mine worked so much he bought one as well. The lead guitarist and drummer are looking at getting them too! (Now to convince the 3rd guitarist and sax player to jump on the bandwagon.)

Carrying this little workhorse around sure beats lugging a bunch of Peavey 112 TLMs all over creation. We'll still use a couple of full sized floor units to fill from the sides but 2 cabinets are a far sight better to lug than 6 or 8!
The 3 way parametric EQ alone makes this unit worth its weight in gold.

If you are so inclined you can daisy chain several units together (but you'll need to go from XLR thru to 1/4" male). It would be nice if they would have provided the option of XLR thru to XLR input or 1/4' to 1/4" but it's not a really big deal. Just get a cable with XLR - 1/4" and you're set.

The volume controls let me adjust the level without having to get the sound tech's attention and then make funny gestures as to tell him to turn my monitor up or worse yet, the ever so unprofessional "announcement" over the PA that I need more monitor.

I'm a short guy (5' 4") and with a straight mic stand set all the way down the angle works just fine for me. I have mine mounted on its own stand and my mic separate on a boom stand with the monitor placed slightly to my right. Using an ElectroVoice N/D 967 mic I have zero feedback issues. If you experience feedback you may want to consider getting a better mic (it really IS worth the extra $$$ in the long run).
I've had mine for a little over a year now and it's held up wonderfully with no issues at all. The sound quality is good (what can one expect from a very small cabinet) and actually way beyond what I expected from such a small package.
You can't beat it for the price! At 1/2 the cost of the Mackie unit (BTW...they are the same) this one is definitely the way to go in a personal stage monitor!

I bought this about two years ago, to use at duo/trio gigs, because I could not hear myself well. It's worked really well up until recently, when it developed a "buzz" or "rattle" inside. I opened it up, tried to insulate metal parts, put electrical tape on any parts that could be vibrating, but so far, have not been successful in removing the buzz. It only happens at certain frequencies/notes, but they happen to be where many of our songs are at. I'm now having to either send it out for repair or replace it and use it as a backup unit. Really hard to say if I'd recommend it, due to vibration/buzz issue. Prior to this happening, I was very happy with it.

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

I have had been basically unable to hear myself play, especially my alto flute, in a variety of bands and settings, and most recently at gigs, large and small, with sound engineers and personal stage monitors. Beyond frustrating. Apparently I was only playing to the house, because I couldn't here myself at all over the the other guys' amps, not to mention the drummer. So I have been toying with in-ear mic vs mic stand monitor. After trying both locally I settled on the B205D, and I am impressed. I have it on an old mic stand about chest height pointed at my face and I can hear everything I play, especially the low register, quiet alto flute notes. Finally!

The only downside is a high pitched vibration when I play an F (349.2 Hz) on the C flute, or its corresponding note on the alto. Like something in the speaker cabinet is loose. It is not loud, and I only notice it if playing alone and the thing is cranked up. It goes away if the speaker's bass EQ is turned down.

To check this out, I took it back to my local shop today, and played the same notes through three different B205Ds, including new models and the floor model. They all have this issue. But I decided to keep it because I love this thing and the vibration is a minor issue for me.

      Works very well in a medium sanctuary; phantom power invaluable with condenser mics, good level of controls for small unit, appears rugged. Needs a mans to store the four stand adapters included.

          Being a DRUMMER and using heavy floor monitors is not only time consuming and back breaking BUT they never do the trick. With a full drum kit, SPACE in MOST of these clubs and sports bars is VERY limited. After using this personal monitor the 1st time, I am TOTALLY convinced that this is TRULY the way to go. I could hear everything clearly and I could adjust my own sound level without fighting with the sound man. I'm ordering another one for my keyboardist and guitarist. I also took out the extended warranty to play it safe. BUY this and ROCK OUT in style !!

              I just came off my first gig with this little guy. It's plenty loud enough and I could hear myself sing backing vocals for the first time! My guitar came through loud and clear as well. Great value.

              As a professional Storyteller, my sound system has to be small enough to carry by myself and big enough to fill a gym full of 400 kids. This little system is the answer to the question! I don't need full fidelity since I am speaking not singing, but this still give the quality I need. I can carry it in a bag over my shoulder and it can blast out to fill the gym or be quiet enough to let senior audiences hear what is being said without feeling they have been blasted out. For the price, you just cannot find a small speakers amp to use.
