I've had a pair of these for about 8 months, which I've used mostly in a (rocked-up) blues power trio at moderate volumes for vocals, miked drums and guitar amps and a bass line out with an active crossover to a single 18 crossed over at 90Hz. I like the sound quality, sure they are not in the league of a high priced speaker, but they sound a lot better than most budget speakers. We played on a lake cruise boat where all we could use for the sound system was the two E1220's and they worked but honestly we were pushing them to their limits miking the guitar amps and kick drum. These are very clean and nice sounding speakers, the high end sounds much better than the older low end JBL's (their high end is really harsh). The cabinets are on the cheap side, the vinyl covering is easy to ding up, but for speakers that sound this good there has to be a trade-off somewhere. The Tapco 6912's have better cabinets and from what I've heard sound nice (probably a bit better and they are more efficient) but they are about $70 more per cabinet, you can buy 3 Behringer's for the price of 2 Tapco's. All in all a real nice sounding dependable value priced speaker.
I purchased a pair if these from a friend and must say- these really hold up!! I was amazed by the quality of the sound that punched out of these little workhorses! We mostly use these as monitors but have had an occasion to use just these as a pair of mains. I match them with the EP1500 Behringer amp and wow! Great low end and surrounding highs. They can handle massive power. We had these cranked for a show as on stage monitors, they pierced right through the stage volume and very low feedback using the XM8500 mics. I am very happy with them and only wish they had dual jacks. I had to modify mine with 1/4" jacks as to daisy chain them to other monitors. Be careful in doing this as to not cross polarize the flow. they work great for me and as little $$ to spend on them, they are little workhorses.
I actually use these speakers as guitar amplification cabs. I run 4 through 2 Gem Sound XP-550 power amps. These speakers have better tone quality than my lead guitarist's high-end Crate stack. They also put out WAY more volume; where my lead is running at 8 and 9 for shows, i can keep my main mix volume around 5 or 6. I've also used these cabs for 2 years now, and between leading them to friends and often giggings, they do get scratched. But unless you're a cosmetic person, these speakers can be depended on for tone and volume for any mid-level musician.
These use Neutrik Speakon cables. NOT standard 1/4" cables. Just an FYI since the description's lacking.
These little 12' speakers absolutely get it done. We use these for Vocal monitors in our rock cover band using a Crown 602 power amp. They have great clarity for the highs and you can pump and unbelievable amount of volume through them. Don't waste your money on the overpriced 12' JBL and Yamaha monitors because these sound and perform just the same. They are also built to last. I have dropped them several times loading and unloading and not even a cosmetic ding. Way to go Behringer. You hit another home run.
I paired 2 of these speakers with a Crown 402 Amp and yes they do Rock and have great sound for a small Karaoke Bar of 25-35 people if placed on stands. If your wanting louder sound for a party of 100 people in a mid-size to larger hall then save your money for the Yamaha Club's or JBL SRX's with a powerful clean amp. These Behringer's are great for monitors because they have a design to sit into 3 different positions. I would have gave a perfect rating, but these speakers don't handle road rash very well, they scratch easily. Overall, It's a fair price as long as you get free shipping.
