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:

    This small stage monitor packs a punch - great quality sound and plenty of volume. I perform 5 nights a week in small to medium-sized venues (100-500 people), and these B205D's have replaced our bulky, powered floor monitors.

    An unlimited # of these can be daisy-chained from a monitor output on your board. The board feed can be plugged into the monitor via 1/4" input or XLR via the combo jacks. A minor complaint is that the "Thru" output on the monitor is just an XLR jack - not a combo jack. An occasional short run with a instrument cable is sometimes a little more convenient than hooking up a 25' mic cable. But this is a very minor quibble.
    I purchased this unit from Musicians Friend for a slight discount due to a damaged box - the unit itself was pristine with all accompanying hardware, manual and warranty intact.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B205D Active PA/Monitor Speaker:

      The Behringer B205D powered monitor has been on the market for years now with a proven track record for ruggedness, sound quality and reliability. For the last several years I've been borrowing a friend's B205D monitors and decided to purchase my own. When Musician's Friend offered me a 20% discount I pulled the trigger. Shipping was fast and they provided a tracking number. I've coupled the B205D with my Allen & Heath ZED10FX mixer and two Yamaha DRX10 powered mains (one small but mighty vocal PA). If I had Behringer ear I would suggest they put back the carry handle on top of the box (like the older ones had).

        I purchased two from musicians friend. One of them was defective and was an open box. Musicians friend was quick to replace the defective one. I love this unit! It is adorable, compact, and extremely loud. The various inputs make it extremely flexible. The assortment of attachments help to make it even more flexible. I found a way to mount it on my microphone stand using a modified gooseneck .

          Great Design: you can control your individual mic volume and the rest of the monitor send separately. Compact: I carry two in a small suitcase.
          Good sound: 3 band EQ with individual (3) and master volumes.
          Tough: one of the band members knocked one over and it works like a champ.
          I bought two for me and another band member; now the rest of the guys are planning on getting them too.

                Plugged in the power cord and it squealed loudly when the volume was touched. MF took so long to replace it I cancelled the order. As I don't live near the warehouse it took four bizz days to get then the weekend as UPS doesn't work then four days and another weekend for the return to get back then another four days to process the return. Finally the day they promised me it would ship it didn't so I cancelled. Never had a problem with Behringer before. The box was not damaged and it was packed well but did not work.

                Very practical, surprising amount of muscle

                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"

                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.)
