OVERVIEW

Compact, lightweight, and plenty powerful.

Like its fellow Behringer EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers, the EUROLIVE B208D PA speaker system features Behringer's special Class-D amplifier technology and internal switch-mode power supply to provide a much better power-to-weight ratio than other active speakers. To put it simply, you get all the power without the backbreaking weight.

Due to the high-efficiency design, the EUROLIVE B208D speaker system cranks out 145W of the cleanest, punchiest audio watts you've ever heard from a compact PA speaker system. The integrated sound processor provides total system control, along with dependable protection of the LF and HF transducers, thanks to the built-in active high-pass filter, which virtually eliminate distortion-even at extreme operating levels. In addition, it features an Ultra-Low Noise (ULN) Mic/Line input with LEVEL control and a dedicated 2-band EQ (bass/treble) for easy control.

Intelligent by Design
One of the coolest things about active loudspeakers is the lack of backbreaking racks of amps, crossovers, and EQs that are often required to make passive speaker systems sound almost as good. But that comes with a trade-off - that extra weight is transferred to the speaker, making it difficult for a single user to heave all that mass onto the top of a speaker stand.

Behringer's EUROLIVE D Series' "Intelligent-Design" merges the best features of active loudspeakers with significantly lower weight by using switch-mode power supplies and Class-D amplifier topology. Hidden deep inside the enclosure is the equivalent of an active 2-way electronic crossover, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, mic preamp, limiter, and two Class-D power amplifiers, yet the overall weight is less than a comparable speaker system. These components work together seamlessly to provide optimum sound quality - and it all takes place automatically, without you having to touch a single knob.

Class D Amplifier Technology delivers high power with low weight
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 the power losses in the output devices. This is easy in theory and complex in practice, which is why there are so many different Class D designs. Without boring you with terms like PWM Generation and Gate Drivers, let's just say that to realize the benefits of a Class D design requires compensating for a lot of potential problems that can cause audible distortion. Behringer didn't invent Class D technology, but their R&D department has been working for years to perfect their own version with all the benefits of reduced weight and cool running, yet without the drawbacks. That's why they invested over a solid year of research time eliminating pitfalls in this PA system like quantizing errors and excess dead time, selecting just the right switching frequency (and other equally tech-y terms). It's also why they spent an equally long-time testing individual components to ensure they will stand up to the rigors of the real world.

When combined with switching-mode power supplies that replace heavy toroid transformers, these new designs provide more dynamic punch since the higher switching frequency reloads the supply's capacitors much faster. And, because they are so much more efficient, the D Series loudspeakers run cooler and don't require huge and heavy heat sinks. The resulting speakers systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up. Its no-compromise design means your Behringer EUROLIVE B208D active loudspeaker will deliver full power and incredible fidelity all night long, with no need for rest cycles.

Instant PA system
With just a single EUROLIVE B208D PA speaker system and a microphone or MP3 player, you can set up an instant sound system. Thanks to the built-in preamp section, you just connect a dynamic mic and raise and lower the volume with the Level control. Plug in your sound source, place the speaker on a tabletop or stand, and power up. It's just that easy. And if you need more coverage, simply use the convenient LINK OUTPUT XLR connector to add more active PA speakers.

Stereo music system
You can use two EUROLIVE B208D enclosures for stereo playback of your MP3, CD, or old-school cassette deck without any additional hardware. Just plug the appropriate stereo breakout adapter into your deck's output jack and run the cables to the 1/4" inputs on each loudspeaker. Set the Level and EQ controls the same on both enclosures, and you've got an instant party.

Marvelous monitoring
Thanks to their trapezoidal design, the D Series cabinets can be laid on their side providing the ideal angle for onstage monitor wedge applications. Hookup is simple too, requiring only a single XLR or 1/4" cable from the monitor send on your mixing console and, of course, power. Additional monitors can be chained together via the XLR LINK OUTPUT jack on the rear panel.

Custom-designed transducers
The transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so Behringer didn't cut any corners. They custom-design and build 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. This enables Behringer to control the quality and make better components, like the long-excursion LF transducers and state-of-the-art 1.35" compression drivers deployed in each EUROLIVE D Series enclosure.

Low-frequency response
The EUROLIVE D Series speakers were built with extended low-frequency handling in mind. With a tuned port, internally braced, injection-molded enclosure, each model's custom-designed LF transducer (woofer) really cranks out tight low end.

Accurate non-fatiguing midrange and treble
Even if your particular application doesn't include booming bass, you'll love the sheer accuracy of the Behringer EUROLIVE B208D. Over a year of design went into an exponential horn/aluminum dome compression driver combination that could do justice to loud hard rock or dance music-yet could also satisfy audiophiles with its musical timbre and attention to detail. For spoken word, singing, or acoustical instruments, the D Series loudspeakers are able to articulate complex harmonic details.

Processor controlled output
Dynamic processing is one of the best ways to maximize output without sacrificing sound quality. The EUROLIVE B208D PA speaker's built-in circuitry automatically adjusts program content, allowing the loudspeaker to operate at extreme levels. It accomplishes this by reducing bass output slightly as you approach the limit of the transducers. This frees up LF amp and transducer resources, so that higher overall volume can be realized. It's like having a tiny soundman inside each cabinet constantly monitoring and changing output parameters. By making subtle changes to the crossover frequency and the audio content, the system is able to crank out more sound - without the slightest hint of distortion.

Massive power-to-size ratio
Cutting-edge technology and high-fidelity speakers are not all it takes to get your message across - you need power, and lots of it. At the heart of each EUROLIVE B208D speaker is two high-current amplifiers with a total output of 220-Watts. They're capable of driving the speakers to their maximum with no distortion-and without speaker damage, thanks to active internal protection circuits. Put simply, they will astound you with their massive punch, smooth mids, and articulate top end.

B208D perfect brass monitor, less good as reference monitor

It gets a high score for being compact, loud and bright!
It gets some points deducted for not incuding a carry handle on the monitor, not being 100% honest with the frequency spectrum, and beause this monitor in particular does not produce a very even or flat volume over frequency curve. Especially lacking in the mid section (around 1kHz).

This lack of mids is bad when you want to use it as accoustic nylon guitar amplifier, piano, but might work well for steel string guitar and amplification for (electronic) brass instruments.
But then, it is the cheapest monitor in it's size, and of it's power level, so the price justifies a lot of it's faults!
the good:- 200W- bright, loud, and lightweight 8" monitor- Very tiny, easy to carry on one arm (like a baby).- XLR IN, XLR out, Jack in, volume and '2band EQ' (see below in 'the bad')- 4 ways to place the monitor: Horizontal (tweeter left or right), vertical (tweeter up), tilted low (for seating musician), tilted high (for standing musician).- 3 mounting options: Wallmount (bracket not included), polemount on the bottom, mic stand mount on the top (mounting the speaker on a micstand makes it stand upside down, with tweeter down).- Electronical protection of the driver and tweeter

The bad:It lacks a lot of things like:- a carry handle- Possibility to connect a stereo 1/4" into it (the unit reads TIP-RING, not TIP-SLEEVE what most amps do, in other words, playing back from a stereo source you'll need to buy a MONO splitter cable)- The 2band EQ really is not a 2 band EQ, but 2 volume knobs one controlling the volume of the woofer, the other the volume of the tweeter.- No speaker out (like with most digital amps, when connecting another speaker to the cabinet, the overall sound changes. So most digital monitors of Behringer will only drive one speaker, no external one)- The frequency spectrum like stated on the behringer spec sheet (65Hz to 20kHz) only holds true for upto ~25% of the volume. As you boost past 50% of the volume the fundamentals no longer are boosted in volume, and the cab's specs rather are 130Hz-20kHz. Boosting the master volume past 12 o'clock (very high volumes) gradually even more of the lowend is cut, and the cab's specs rather are 160-200Hz to 20kHz. This is to protect the woofer from being damaged by too much lowend. The negative side is that the sound lacks bass, the positive side is you can boost volumes beyond what this cabinet was made to do.
The sound quality is not good for monitoring audio CD, voice or any mid oriented instrument like piano or nylon stringed guitar.The B208D has the same amplifier as the B210D, and it is known that the B210D has a larger dome and cone than the B208D, thus producing more deeper lowend and more mids than this one.

In other words, for the audio engineers out there: The behringer B208D not only has a real frequency spectrum of about 80-130Hz to 20kHz, it also has a dip in volume between 800Hz and 2kHz (crossover issue).

Any mid oriented instrument will have difficulty hearing himself on stage.Drums will have issues with not hearing the snare well enough, as well as the depth of the bass kick.This monitor is excellent for amplification of wind instruments, or electronic wind instruments!Sax, trumpet, and steel string acoustic guitars, all those instruments that use anything from 200Hz to 800Hz as their base tone, and from 2kHz to 16khz for monitoring the bright of their sound (brightness of the reed, or bright trumpets) will love this monitor!
There's no monitor on the market with the same specs for that price, save for a CONTACT CX MKII, made in italy, which only can be gotten in Europe, but is less flexible than this one.

Got these as add on stage monitors and was initially impressed but quickly lost my good opinion. They sounded good in an enclosed space at lower volumes but once turned up they have horribly muddy lows and mids and sharp grating highs. The lack of a handle at all is a horrible design flaw. Once turned up to a reasonable level they begin to hiss and crackle (even without any signal going through). The volume and eq knobs on the back are cheap and bend/break easily. For how small they are they weigh a tun! I would recommend staying away from this brand and going for EV ZLX series. Much better tone, frequency response, volume, SPL rating etc.

Best small speaker cabinet for the money

By Semi Retired Guitar Nut

from Greensburg, Pa

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

I purchased 2 of these when they first came out a couple years ago not knowing what to expect. They came a few days later professionally packed and in flawless condition. Weighing in at just over 14lbs, I can carry 2 of them at a time while setting up for a job. The cabinets are built like a tank and they look fantastic. But all these features would mean nothing if they have poor sound. . .Right!

I first played a CD through them, cranked the volume up and was totally blown away by the sound quality. The highs are crisp but not harsh; The lows are rich and very musical. Not as low as their larger brothers which I also own but still quite impressive. Since we are using these as stage monitors, the real test is how they perform with a live rock band cranking through them.

Our band uses no stage amplifiers. The guitar and bass both go through a floor processor and then output directly into the PA mixer. For drums, we use a Roland V drumset. This gives a very accurate impression of how the speakers sound and let me tell you they they pulled through with flying colors. Even the kick drum was clear and punchy and the volcals clear as a bell. I tried using them as the mains along with subs on a smaller job but to be honest, that was just more than they could handle. They passed every other test with flying colors.

Since then, I purchased 2 more of these and use 4 of the b21d's along with 2 subs as the mains. I am sure that the QSC k8 or Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 8" speakers sound better but all 4 of my Behringers cost not much more than 1 of the above mentioned. As a musician playing for over 3 decades in many bands over the years, I highly recomend purchasing these speakers. You will be amazed as I was!
Volume, bass and and high controls on the back. Aslo a output jack to link additional units.
Built like a tank and the finish is very durable.
Lowest price 8" powered speakers on the market.

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

I bought my B208D almost 2 months ago and have used it already in a few gigs. Gigs from house parties to a restaurant where I play weekly. Not only am I enjoying the portability of this speaker but the sound is amazing. I run my microphone, drum machine and my acoustic/electric nylon string guitar through it using a small Behringer mixer. A little more than half of the volume is enough to fill the place. Of course I also like the price range. The only thing that this beauty is missing is a handle.

Solved my problems

By Anonymous

Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

I bought this just to see what a powered speaker was all about. I use this as a monitor placing it on my left side between me and the drummer. It solved my hearing problems. It is clear and crisp and I have no problems with feedback. Just plug my mic cable into it and go from it to the P.A and adjust the volumn and I'm ready to go. Should have done this a long time ago.

      These little speakers are small but they are plenty loud if you play smaller houses of less than 500 people. I recently bought a third speaker for a monitor. I've had two others now for a couple of years. I originally bought these smaller speakers for when I play for a smaller audience and my larger system would be too much. I also like these because they can easily be hooked into my larger system. Not bad speakers for the money.

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      We've had this unit around for almost a year now. It gets used as a spot monitor on gigs (vocals, keys) and a rehearsal amp/cabinet (DigiTech RP250 and POD-XTL). It works really well with DigiTech RP pedals (which have limited output options). If you want to use this live with a guitar modeler, you might want to consider the 10 or 12-inch versions. If you're adding it as a second stereo channel to your combo setup, the horn is a delightful addition for acoustic sim patches. I went through two Mackie SRM150s before I picked this up. Behri got their Class-D act together. The unit has been very reliable under some extreme circumstances. Not the absolute best in this size category (QSC K8, EV ZXA1-90 and SX80a, Wharfedale Titan8P) but it has eq respectable performance and reliablity. No handles but easily carried.

      Great little monitor

      By Peter Cutler

      from Tehachapi, Ca.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

      I had already had a very good experience with this model's little brother, the B205d (about the size of a football) so I expected good things from this one and I wasn't disappointed. Very "hifi" for a stage monitor, plenty of oomph for its size, nice flexibility of use, being so small and light. It will be perfect for our little acoustic music venue. We don't need really deep bass out of it, just good clean sound for vocals, guitars etc. Very happy, especially for the price!

      I bought this because I needed the best sound/power in a small space. I am very impressed by how rugged this unit was built. It's not heavy at all, but, it is not one of those very light cheaply made units. I have not, and, am not going to run music through this unit. I bought it strictly for vocals. Good power and nice vocal reproduction without any distortion. I will definitely order another. Oh yeah, nice value too!

        I wasn't sure if these would it the bill for my "Micro PA", but they definitely did. In fact, the only downside is, they don't have a carry handle. I'm so impressed that these are going into my home studio and I'm upgrading to the 10's. We played a bar gig and used these for FOH mains. (vocals only) They did great. I was blown away. Compared to my regular PA, which requires a pickup and (2) guys to move, these are a welcome relief.

          Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

          I have been using this speaker I think for 4 years now... It has been thrown around numerous times and still going strong with no issues or any broken knobs. I have even used it as a bass amp for a short period of time! Mostly it has been used for acoustic shows (2 vocals, percussion, 2 guitars), as well as monitor for full band shows (mostly running vocals).
          In one of our shows in Boston we actually used it in the street for vocals and backing tracks, guitar through a vox ac30 amp, bass through fender acoustasonic amp, and no mics on drums, even in that open space (Make Music Harvard Square), it sounded great, vocals and playback tracks were clear enough... Definitely worth the money. I usually rent QSC or MacKie speakers for bigger venues but this is always with me for a monitor or backup system.

          Bought one last year for our church piano player: something affordable and small as a single person monitor. Was so impressed with the output and clarity, I bought two more for our small choir. Tone not as rich as our 15 inch Macs, but plenty of power, not as visibly obnoxious and you just can't beat the price.

            These little monsters can even be used as mains in many small settings. Sound and range is crystal clear. If you're thinking about buying one -- stop thinking-- do it.

              I honestly thought I made a bad purchase at first---I saw how small this speaker really is---then I screwed a mic stand on it and plugged it in as a monitor. Blew me away! Real bright beautiful tones and rich lows. I gives a very clean sound and lets me feel confident that the mains must sound even better. It cuts right thru my 4 piece band and lets me hear my vocals and guitar beautifully. So dont buy one of these--buy two!!

                This speaker is absolutely incredible. I have used this bad little boy as a monitor for several years now and it is completely satisfactory. I wish I had a small army of these things. In fact, this little guy packs more punch than its big brother, the 10" variety. Not sure what happened there, but that 10" speaker just won't pump out the bass as efficiently as this little guy. I love this speaker and whether you intend to use it as a monitor or as a small system for a party DJ rig or something, this thing won't let you down.

                  Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B208D Active PA Speaker System:

                  I was looking for a micro PA for my rental company - something that could easily be transported/setup by the novice client for playback music + limited speech (small parties, meetings etc); I was pleasantly surprised with the sound that comes out of these small boxes (and from this brand) - it's clear (even when pushed) and loud. Of course these won't shake any walls down but the do have a surprising amount of low end for their size/power; it's punchy (near field). They also have nice imaging. High-end sits just right, a little sizzle with no harshness. they also project well. If I had once complaint on the sound i'd be that the low mid is a bit pronounced in the near-field but I attribute that to the driver size.
                  Cons - only points I can take away from this box is that they have no handle and they may be a few smackeroonies over where a powered 8-inch should sit - then again - it isn't the QSC K8 (and isn't trying to be)

                  Our Fender 1270P was perfect, but also lacked a ground lift. Another group blew the woofer and so we needed a replacement and the Behringer B208D was the closest thing to it. Both units lack a ground lift and require a Hosa Passive Direct Box to connect to our P/A system.
