    As a church planter on a tight budget I needed a simple compact PA solution. Having purchased other PA systems in the past I really wanted to go with a molded active speaker for easier setup in this case, but the cost of SRM's was out of reach for our tight budget. I decided to try the B212A's and I am really pleased with the purchase. I'm still impressed each time I play some music through these. There is a lot of volume available, the highs are crisp, there's a nice full body to the sound with no mud, and a surprising punchy low-end for a 12" speaker. Overall a very nice articulate sound which will allow one to hear more separation of musical parts than on many other systems. Compact enough to haul in any vehicle and light enough for a small person to setup. Combined with a small Behringer Xenyx mixer and there is no noticable background noise or hiss, just a nice clean sound which will serve a small audience very well with minimal hassles during setup. For well under $1000 (including mixer, stands, cables) these will provide a very acceptable PA for many applications. These would also serve well as wedge monitors or for a heavier sound could be supplemented with a sub, leaving many options available to use these down the road, so they'll adapt with changing needs. Great purchase!

    First of all, let me say that I have never been as dissatisfied with a product as I am with these speakers.A couple of months ago I bought two of the B212A's brand new from Guitar Center to use for monitors and to back-up my QSC K12 mains (which are awesome, BTW). Just 5 minutes into sound-checking our first gig using these things and one started hissing and crackling, then went completely dead. I was upset, but I figured you're bound to get a bad one once in a while. So I drove it 80 miles back to the GC and since it was within 30 days they replaced it with a B212D (they were out of stock on the B212A).A few days ago we played a gig using the other B212A for maybe the third time. Guess what...it burned out, too. Except this time, I'm outside of the 30 days from purchase so I can't just take it back and get a new one.They sound ok and are loud when they work, but I figure you have maybe a 50% chance of them actually making a sound. For the price, I could deal with the harsh highs and excessive feedback, but when I pay this much per speaker I expect at the very least it should turn on and produce sound. I guess I was wrong.My advice: stay away from these things. You're gambling with your money.

    Can't be beat for the money

    By glwaggs

    from CA

    I was first surprised at the power of this. I've use Peavey powered monitors that don't come close to this. Now for the down side. I owned this for less than 6 months and it died on me. I called MF and they hooked me up with Behringer. Behringer told me of a local repair center. They took 2 days and I had it back. I talked to the tech and he told me that all that was wrong was a bad solder connection. He then told me about "flash soldering", which is a mass production method of soldering used by many (even higher end brands). There is a percentage of failure with this method, but usually is a quick fix (after diagnoses, of course). After learning this I felt much more at ease with buying another.As far as blowing the speakers would be concerned, any speaker can be blown, so I try to keep my volumes (for this unit) @ 50% and never above 75% to keep THD/feedback at as much a minimum as possible. Therefore I have had no speaker failure.

    loud and very tough

    By dj diamond dave

    from coldsprings, TX

    Ive owned 2 of these speakers for 6 months and they are impressive.I use them as monitors in my band. If we arent careful they will overpower our mains.The really cool thing is one was recently dropped,and it still works.

    Much better than expected!

    I bought a pair of B212a's, to use as monitors with a 4 piece 60's/Beatles group. Set up FOH to compare to Peavey 12's with a Crown amp. Awesome! Better bass, much more punch! I bought 4 more, to use as 4 seperate monitors (we are very vocal oriented) and 2 FOH. First time was outdoors, with AC30's, etc. Ran my keyboard rig through them, as well. Had to keep turning them down - loud! Ran non-stop in the sun for 4 hours, didn't skip a beat. Setup? 10 minutes! No more grunting heavy amps! I could pack an AC30, full keyboard rig, full PA, several guitars - all in a small SUV - and be more than loud enough for an outdoor gig!Sure, these aren't Mackie quality - but plenty good for the average band. For the price of FOH Mackies, I got 4-way monitors and stereo FOH. Behringer is definitely getting better at this.

    2 Have died on me in less than 1 year

    By 4GR

    from upstate ny

    I bought 1 B212A to use for vocals in my small practice space. I liked the sound quality and ease of use so much that I bought another to use with a small mixer as a PA for vocals and acoustic guitar. Then the trouble began. First, one speaker started to crackle a bit and was far more quite than the other. I called Behringer - they gave me a return authorization number and directed me to send the speaker in to their repair center. 3 months later I got my speaker back. In the meantime I foolishly bought another so we could play shows. Again, we're only running vocals and acoustic through these things and not too loud. Now, another speaker has blown. It just gurgles, pops, and hums. I plan on sending it in tomorrow. My dime of course. Not sure what to do at this point.

    B212A Rock!

    By Toneseeker361

    from Corpus Christi, Tx

    I Purchased the a pair of B212A's about one week ago and I just got back from a dj gig. I played in a hall about 70x60 and plugged in a pair of the B212A alone first before I hooked up the mains (Phonic 2-2x15 cabs w/horns) just to see what all the hoopla was about. The sound was totally full range and filled the room (empty with hard walls) with volume at just under peaking level, it wasn't chest pounding or anything, but for just being two twelve's, I actually caught myself smiling when I stepped out in front of them. I have to say these things are going to put Behringer on the map. I've heard some negitivity toward Berhinger about the quality of thier equipment in the past, but they seem to be doing something right. The sound was punchy, crystal clear, and loud; so loud, the cabinets rattled just a little with the beat of the music. I ended up using them together with my mains instead of monitors like I planned, they made a difference in the volume.I played them at capacity for 3hrs straight and they didn't even cough once!The 4.5 is for the rattling.I hope to get another pair soon!These are killer!

    Better than other more expensive speakers

    By Ryoga

    from Austin, TX

    I started to work on a club 6 months ago and they had this little speakers as booth monitors, I didn't care that much about the quality as I only needed a speaker to hear the sound closer and many booths have worse speakers, the first time I used them I was blown, they sound better than the 15 inch JBL Eon Speakers I own and are far cheaper, I plan on getting a pair of this or the 15 inch version to replace my JBLs, yes they sound THAT great.

    Mobile Dj

    By Dj J-Cruz

    from Space City

    I don't just any kind of speaker. But I bought a pair these, because I heard them at tailgate party. I was amazed with the power and sound on these little things. I'm a mobile dj. I was looking for something portable and afforable. And found it. I would recommmend these to any DJ.
