    Build Quality: The Behringer B215A polypropylene injection-molded enclosures are exceptionally rigid, fairly light-weight (51lbs) and very well designed. Basically a trapezoidal design that can be pole mounted or laid on the side (30 degree angle) as a monitor. The advantage of the of injection-molded process is that they can tune/port/shape the cabinet in ways never possible with traditional wood/cabinet construction. The payoff is some surprisingly deep bass from such a small cabinet. Nice built in handles allow to easily carry with one hand. I pulled off the back panel which is essentially the integrated power amp/controls to take a look around inside. The beefy 15? speaker is a stamped frame design with fairly large magnet. I could not tell the voice-coil size but guessing somewhere around 2.5?. It had a large sticker had the Behringer logo with a ?600 Watt? rating on it. I couldn?t quite see the HF driver but it is attached directly to the horn that is integrated in the overall cabinet. The power section features a small toroid power supply and with the rest of the electronics enclosed. There is no active cooling (ie: fan) and it is a very tight fit.Sound Quality: Overall these speakers perform great for their size and price. The bass is exceptionally punchy and high are well balanced. The high frequency projection however is a little on the short side ? things start to drop off pretty quick. The bass however punches through hard especially considering how small the cabinets actually are. Behringer claims the speakers are ?Processor Controlled?. My guess is an active crossover unit, maybe some sort time delay/correction between the speakers and a limiter. You can hear the limiter kicking in under hard loads (it takes a lot however). The speakers are better suited to prerecorded music than live. They just seem to muddy up under the dynamics of live music. Still they are great speakers for the price. Functionality: The are compact, somewhat lightweight (51lbs) and very portable. They are designed to mount on pole stands and can lay on either side as monitors. The control panel has a XLR & ? Inputs, XLR output, Power Button, and Volume/Tone knobs. The Volume, Bass and Treble knobs are small but work well. When used as monitors, accessing the volume/tone knobs and power button is difficult. Also the ? the connection cables (XLR or ?) extend out nearly touch the ground when used as a monitor. It wouldn?t take much for the monitor to rock back and break/bend these connections. Also ? Behringer rates the speakers as 400 Watts (320 LF + 80 HF). This is very misleading as it is a ?Peak Power Rating? (not a very valid rating). According to the owners manual ? they are actually only rated at 250 RMS Watts (200 LF + 50 HF). Strengths: Great Sounds, Great Portability, Great Value! Weakness: Limited Cooling ? Since they are very compact and there is no cooling fan they are very prone to overheat if pushed to limits for a long time. Used as monitors ? control knobs are difficult to access and cables stick out the back to the point where they could break or be bent. Overstated Power Rating ? they are actually rated 250 RMS Watts ? not 400 ?Peak? Watts.

    I used these speakers for about a year as mains for the three live bands I work in to make my bread and butter, plugged into a Mackie CFX20 board. the sound was not bad. you couldnt turn them past half power without them hissing, but I thought I got a good deal....until 7-24-07. Even though I have them hooked to a power conditioner, during the middle of my 1st set, they started cutting out. and then died compleatly. I changed the fuses, but they are still dead. I will never buy a Behringer product again. I believe in musicians friend and all of the great products they offer. I hope they stop carrying Behringer all together, because these line of products are beneath them.

    Excellent Value for the Money...

    By AxeManGa

    from Atlanta, GA

    I bought these things as Monitors initially. Now I am considering the purchase of two more as the main Drivers for our Band (we are a 4-piece Classic Rock with Electronic Drums). Anyways, I highly reccomend these, they are powerful, clear and ver

    Great sound fir the money

    By Brian-nrVUa

    from New Matamoras Ohio

    I bought this speaker back in Feb 09. I needed a standard stage monitor, and also a way to amp my Roland V kit on stage. For both, it works out great. I get nice thump out of the 15" speaker, and the horn does great for the cymbals. Vocals are crisp and clear as well. The only problem I have is that it weighs a freaking ton, but that's to be expected. I say buy one with confidence.

    Really Awesome Speakers

    By These Alt Rock

    from info@flooredonempty.com

    These are the best powered speakers I have found for the money. I bought a set for my practice space at home...then bought a second set for our drummers house. If EQ'd properly, these things can sound amazing. My only complaint...I am not a weightlifter...and these things are heavy.

    Wonderful

    By Allen88Tech

    from Queen Creek, AZ

    This worked exactly how I expected it to. You can connect an sm58 to it directly without even any EQing and it sounds great! The only thing I would suggest is that if you plan on using it as a stage monitor, get some angled cables. Regular cables get pressed on by the floor because of the angle.

    You will not be sorry!

    By T. Wilson

    I am like most of the other musician's, price played the biggest part of me buying these speakers. I played on the mackies and after comparing the cost went with the Behringer's on a trail basis. Well after the first show using them to supplement our system outdoors, myself and the rest of the band loved them. I use them as floor monitors inside and they are awesome. For the cost give them a try. We gigged them hard all summer in the heat and they were flawless!

    Great Speaker! Great Deal!

    By ScarySound

    from Buffalo, NY

    After making the decision to pull the trigger on these babies, it has been one of the best live sound decisions I have ever made. The clarity of sound at high volumes, and the versatility the 215a's provide are unparalleled. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone starting out or the experienced vet. Bottom line, these things freaking rock!

    Surprisingly good!

    By Saving you the Trouble

    from Kansas City, MO

    My band needed some speakers for our practice space, and on a budget too.We knew the cost on these was low, and were well aware of Behringer's reputation, but after all the great reviews picked these up. We use them strictly for vocals, synth, samples and bass drum right now, and these are amazing.If you're on a budget, and you need good speakers for vocals, this is your buy. Do it.

    BEST SPEAKERS YOU CAN POSSIBLY OWN

    By musicbyeric

    from Undisclosed

    This speaker is the best I've used! I own a pair of these and they are so amazing. If you're a DJ or club owner or if you are in a band, these speakers are excellent because if you play the music loud, they will not get distorted. They have a really good, high quality TITANIUM driver. They also have very good bass. They have 1/4" and XLR inputs plus an XLR output which can be used to daisy chain several speakers. Even though the Mackie speakers and JBL speakers are high quality, you would be paying hundreds more on those when you can get these, the Behringer B215A speakers that have the same quality and are a lot less money! So I encourage you to buy this amazing product!

    Impressed!

    I debated a long time over these, wanting something more expensive, but lacking the money. I decided to take a chance at having to pay return shipping if I didn't like them. I have been, and still am TOTALLY impressed with the power and quality of sound from these. I used to run sound professionally with an all Renkus-Heinz system, trust me, I know good sound from mediocre or bad. So I figured I had 45 days to test these out and return them if unhappy. I played bass heavy mp3?s (not crystal clean CDs) of old dance and hip hop stuff, and like Ace of Base through these with the bass EQ up on the mp3, AND the mixer AND the speaker, played at 120db or more. These B215A?s played them with incredible power, clean powerful bass, and didn?t bat an eye. I have paired mine with 2 samson DB1500a active 1000watt subs, and a Behringer UB2442FX-PRO mixer. This board is equally impressive (the fx, are just okay). If you?re trying to put a system together, BUY THESE! You won?t be disappointed.
