DSP-controlled 1,200-watt 12" PA speaker system with neodymium speakers and integrated mixer.

The 12" Behringer EUROPLIVE B812NEO 2-way PA speaker packs an incredible array of truly professional features. The EUROLIVE B812NEO, like the entire EUROLIVE 1,200 NEO Series loudspeakers is a brute, providing extreme levels of low-end punch, with the kind of high-fidelity definition and clarity typically reserved for a much larger system. This powerful new speaker system outperforms its predecessor and weighs 30% less.

Class-D Works its Magic
What's the secret? The state-of-the-art EUROLIVE B812NEO active loudspeaker is powered by a custom-engineered Class-D amplifier, which drives the low- and high-frequency transducers to their limits without even the slightest hint of distortion. Best of all, Behringer's Class-D amplifiers use switch-mode power supplies, which don't need massive transformers and heat sinks, so they provide a much better power-to-weight ratio than many otheractive systems.

Put simply, the cool-running EUROLIVE B812NEO system is much lighter than its predecessor, making it ultra-easy to transport and set up. The no-compromise design means you get solid, punchy bass, along with powerful mids and pristine highs that will keep the party going all night long.

Digital Signal Processing
From the instant the signal enters the EUROLIVE B812NEO system, the digital processor takes over, ensuring the highest possible signal integrity. Much more than just selective EQ enhancement, the 24-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) circuitry analyzes the signal and intelligently applies specific filters to actually improve the sound quality. It's like having a tiny sound guy inside each enclosure (with all the best gear), monitoring the input and output signals, dialing in the perfect EQ, and constantly making subtle adjustments to the crossover, compressor/limiter, and more.

Custom-Designed Transducers
The transducer (speaker) is the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so Behringer doesn't cut any corners. They wind their own voice coils, process the paper pulp into cones and even machine the frames and back plates. This enables Behringer to control the quality, and frankly, make better components—like the neodymium woofers and 1.75" neodymium titanium diaphragm compression drivers deployed in the EUROLIVE B812NEO loudspeaker.

Power to Spare
Cutting-edge technology and high-fidelity transducers are not all it takes to get your message across—you need power, and lots of it. At the heart of the EUROLIVE B812NEO is a bi-amped 1,200-watt engine capable of driving the speakers to their very limit, without the slightest hint of distortion. When it comes to pure output power, the EUROLIVE B812NEO loudspeaker will simply blow you away with its massive punch, smooth mids, and articulate top-end.

Instant PA System
With just a single EUROLIVE B812NEO loudspeaker system and one or two dynamic microphones, you can set up an instant sound system. The onboard mixer features a LEVEL control for each input and a dual-band master EQ, complete with an adjustable LOW CUT filter to help eliminate annoying breath pops and mic handling noise. An additional filter, called the CONTOUR, allows you to select SPEECH (for enhanced voice intelligibility), or MUSIC for the broader frequency range required for the high-fidelity reproduction of music. And, if you need more coverage, you can chain together as many as you like via the convenient LINE OUT XLR connector.

Marvelous Monitoring
When laid on its side, the EUROLIVE B812NEO loudspeakers tilt to the ideal angle for onstage monitor wedge applications. Hookup is simple, requiring only a single XLR cable from the monitor send on the mixing console and, of course, power. Additional monitors can be chained together via the XLR LINE OUT jack on the loudspeaker's rear panel.

More Than Just a PA Loudspeaker
The EUROLIVE B812NEO loudspeaker also makes an excellent onstage monitor for keyboards, acoustic guitars, or any line-level instrument for that matter. You can plug your instrument into MIC/LINE 1 and use the MIC/LINE 2 input to connect the monitor signal from the PA mixing console, so that you can also hear the other members of your band. This opens up lots of possibilities.

If you want to use more than two instruments, you will need a submixer to mix down the signals. You will need a special adapter to convert a standard 1/4" TS cable to XLR, or a direct injection box.

    Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B812NEO 12" 2-Way Speaker:

    The mixer our quartet has is small with not much power. These powered speakers were just what we were needing. With 1200 watts they should do the job wherever we perform.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B812NEO 12" 2-Way Speaker:

      I recently ordered the 812NEO to use doing Big Band Jazz gigs at retirement centers. This is my first powered speaker, and it is working beautifully replacing PA Head and speaker on these gigs. I also started using it for a monitor cabinet and as a remote speaker ( for the times your client needs a speaker outside that has a separate volume control ). Last weekend, I had to play bass as well as sing and the two inputs worked well. The bass sounded good and the vocals were clear. The crowd was satisfied, bottom line !!!

          Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE B812NEO 12" 2-Way Speaker:

          I own 1 from last year, bought another 1 to match it. It may not be a QSC K12 but it's strong enough and clear enough to get the job done. Behringer is really making quality products. My whole sound system are Behringer products and I get compliments every time I dj a party. I matched them with the Behringer B1800D subwoofers and the only complaint I get is to turn the music lower (which makes me smile like a chester cat). I know quality sound cuz I also mix music and these speakers make the cut and for the price it really makes the cut

            I bought these for additional sound reinforcement to my Blue Mackie 450s for large halls.They are powerful,well built and sound great.I use them in my Roy Orbison tribute with backing tracks .I prefer the sound of the Mackies ,but not by much. If cost is a big concern I don't think these speakers can be beat.I have not had any issues at all with them after about a dozen uses.They will do fine as your primary pa,don't let the 12 inch speaker scare you, these things kick!

                  Expected awesome performance based on specs decided to roll the dice on 1200w Behringers but both speakers arrive non functional. 1st did nothing. Second, plugged it in hit the power switch and big blue spark came out the back. It is obvious that these speakers were never tested at the factory. Extremely disappointed in the quality of these speakers but Musicians friend made the best out of a bad situation setup the return and got some Different Speakers in the mail to replace this junk.
