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

Excellent idea, excellent product, CRAZY good value! I use a mic splitter with mine-one side into the mixer, the other into the B205D's Channel 1. I run the normal unpowered monitor mix into the B205D's channel 2. I mostly use the channel 2 signal, but if I need to hear a little more ME, I can bump channel 1 up a bit without having to bother the sound guy. If I have to run sound from the stage, I run the MAINS signal to channel 2 instead of the monitor mix, so I can hear what's going on out front. They are a LITTLE shy on high frequencies, but adding a tweeter would probably cause feedback at this close range to a mic. I wish I had 5 more--probably will eventually!
I really like having 3 channels of inputs--opens up multiplw ways to use this monitor! I wish it came with a mic splitter. This thing is also an EXCELLENT acoustic guitar amp! Or, plug your mp3 into the RCA ins, a mic in channel 1, a guitar in channel 2--instant PA for a 1 man act. Even better--Daisy chain 1 more--instant PA WITH MONITOR for a 1 man act!
Despite all the horrible reviews about Behringer's quality and product support, I have had ZERO problems with ANY of my Behringer gear-and I have several pieces, most are several years old. The one thing I contacted Behringer Support for (extra mic stand mounts for this item) was handled quickly.
This price bucks for a powered monitor with 3 input channels? That sounds this good? EXCELLENT value!

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.

Who could ask for anything more

By Cereb

from Canada

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

After being warned by different stores who did not have this item in stock to stay away from it. And according to them the cheap components etc.etc.etc. I was scared but based my decision to get one on the Behringer gear I already own and that I have been more than satisfied with.This unit is simply fantastic for the price, it's silent, loud, and has all the features which enables me to link it with my partners Soloamp so I can also hear him through my mix. And it does not heat up at all. It's half the price of the Mackie and TC Helicon and I'm glad I made the move, the money I saved helped me get the 4Bar lighting system, so now I have personal monitoring and stage lights. Who could ask for anything more at this price. Bravo BEHRINGER I use this unit in venues for my folk duo where most of the time we don't have much stage space to work with. On the other hand I wouldn't use it when I'm playing with my full blues band, with them I go back to my wedges.

Excellent stage monitor

Ask me a question

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

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!

Beats the SRM150

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

I returned two Mackie SRM150s---they just died. I waited and got one of these after using a B208D for a year. I'm very happy with the Behri---don't even waste your time with the Mackie if this is the type of unit you need. It performs just like the Mackie does and doesn't die on you. Behri has its Class-D stuff together. I now own two of these. Don't expect Wembly. Great for songwriters, acoustic practice and vocal rehearsals. An interesting alternative to a full-blown acoustic amp. All at a bargain price.

we bought 4 of them

By Mark Allemang

from Sault Ste. Marie, ontario

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

we are supplying a monitor mix into the back of the 1st unit and using the thru connector to daisy-chain through the other 3 units. Then we are supplying a personal signal from the 4 vocal channels from the board(using the channel patch connector). It didn't work as expected unfortunately the thru connector on the back isn't a duplicate of what comes in on the back input connector. Instead the thru is a mix of what comes in the back and what is supplied in the front channels as well. This forced us to switch our ides to use Y connectors to supply band monitor mix into channel 1 and the personal vocal signal into channel 2. Anyway, not a really big deal but it would have been nice if bhering had supplied a BLOCK-DIAGRAM of the signal flow for all subsystems!!! Other than that it's pretty close to PERFECT!!!

Big Sound in a Small Package

By El Trubadour

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

It's not very often that one finds two great uses for one product, but this active speaker excels in both categories. I needed a compact speaker system, which would easily fir into my trunk without taking up much room. I wanted it to be small, yet powerful. At the same time, I needed a couple of powered stage monitors for other events. The Behringer Eurolive B205D is a surprisingly powerful unit, which can easily handle a lecture in a room of 100 people. As a stage monitor, it keeps things off the ground and closer to the performer. Also, the unique mounting system enables the microphone stand to support the monitor and place the microphone boom over the unit. So, if you are just looking for a small, portable speaker system, OR a convenient stage monitor, feast your eyes on the Behringer B205D. You will congratulate yourself on your fine selection.

Rather have a Mackie

By QuadFinger

from Austin Texas

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

I purchased one of these and used it on two different gigs. I also purchased a Mackie SRM 150. The B205D is a direct clone of the Mackie. The specs are IDENTICAL, the mic stand mount is IDENTICAL.The three band EQ frequencies are IDENTICAL. ALL I/O and switching are IDENTICAL . I A/B them for sound using a beta 58 and frankly in could not hear any difference. Now when I say clone, I mean a near exact copy from a specs stand point. I returned the B205D in favor of the Mackie, not because it sounds better but because Behringer has a reputation of poor quality and I feel that the Mackie will hold up better. Again let me stress that the specks are identical and so is the sound.

Very practical, surprising amount of muscle

By Abel

Comments about EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

I'm a worship leader in a 1000+ member church, and we always need quick and easily set up speaker options for a variety of needs. (laptop audio for projection, stage monitors, small scale PA applications, etc.)

Pros: Amazing clarity and volume in a very small package, 150 Watts in something literally the size of a small boom box. Having two XLR/1/4 inch inputs plus stereo RCA inputs means being able to hook up guitar and vocals for a quick small to medium-sized room gig, and it easily has enough power to work well for that.

Cons: Given the limitations of physics, you can only expect so much bass response out of something this size, and while you'll still get a decent amount of low-mids, you'd definitely need to supplement this with a subwoofer or bass amp if you want true full-range sound.

Overall: Great value for the price, great portability, good configuration of inputs and controls. A very practical little speaker with a surprising amount of muscle.

These little monitors are "amazing"

By Memory Brother #1

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

Have you ever read the term "amazing" in a product review? I bet you have - probably many, many times. And just how often is that overused term justified? Probably hardly ever. Well here's an exception to the rule. I play 4-5 nights a week in a variety of musical settings - from a duo all the way up to a five-piece band. I think the one constant in whatever lineup I use is the guys always want to be able to hear themselves better - either their vocals or the band mix. In certain settings monitors aren't even needed; but in the other 80-90% of the venues we play, monitors are necessary. We've used powered floor monitors for the most part over the years, and they usually work well. But as you know, they are heavy (45+ lbs.) and take up a good amount of real estate when hauling. A friend introduced me to this compact (7 lbs.) Behringer monitor a couple years ago and I almost dismissed it immediately, because in appearance it reminded me of the Hot Spot passive monitors we used 30+ years ago (those old Hot Spots never really worked very well.) But when my friend offered to let me try this little Behringer, I gave it to my guitar player who is always complaining he can't hear himself and let him use it for a gig. He didn't really comment on it after the gig and I returned it to my friend the next day. Fast forward a year, another musician friend of mine mentioned a little monitor that he had his eye on. It was actually the TC Helicon personal monitor. So I looked it up online; and as I was reading the reviews, I kept thinking it looked familiar. Then it hit me, it reminded me of the Behringer unit. So I started looking at the reviews for Behringer and noted that it had earned 5 stars across the board. So I called up my other friend and asked to borrow his Behringer again. He obliged and this time I really paid attention to the comments my band members made. Their unanimous verdict after a week of use: "Amazing!" (And I agree.)
