OVERVIEW

550 Watt 12" PA speaker system.

Whether you need a PA system for a metal band, a church or a one-man show, you want a speaker that sounds great at whisper level—but can also fill the house if needed. The Behringer EUROLIVE VP1220D takes all the guesswork out of matching the right speakers with the right amplifiers and crossover points, providing plug-and-play loudspeakers that are designed for hassle-free use and optimal performance.

Superior Sound Quality
The Behringer EUROLIVE VP1220D loudspeaker system features 550 Watts of Class D output power housed in a lightweight cabinet that is ergonomically designed and as a result, really easy to transport and maneuver around a stage area. It has a high-efficiency 12" woofer, for warm and present bass, and a 1.75" titanium driver, for crystal-clear high-end resolution. The internal amplifiers and speakers are designed to function as a perfectly matched team, ensuring great sound every time. There are also Bass and Treble master tone controls as well as an overall level control.

Class D
Class-D amplification offers the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and big, heavy heat sinks. This amazing technology results in significantly lighter in weight than conventional power amps, while using less energy. That's good for you, the club and environment.

The biamp difference
A true biamped system, the VP1220D separates its available power into two, a 450W section that drives the 12" woofer, and a 100W power amp that drives the titanium HF driver. The crossover component engages before amplification, resulting in both power amps working less hard and providing greater clarity and presence.



Great speakers
The conventional wisdom in purchasing home stereo is to spend half of your available resources on your speakers. After all, that is the part of the system that you are actually going to listen to. Behringer's LF (Low Frequency) and HF (High Frequency) transducers are designed specifically for each application. Behringer transducers inside have been engineered to perform flawlessly with every other element for professional results. The VP1220D cranks out massive quantities of low end, with articulate, detailed mids and crystal-clear highs.

Easy to cart, easy to set up, versatile
Thanks to its trapezoidal shape, the VP1220D is suitable for a wide variety of applications, such as mounting on standard speaker poles, vertical placement atop subwoofers, or even laid on the side for use as onstage monitor wedges. The VP1220D’s extraordinary fidelity and frequency response make them a favorite of vocalists and instrumentalists alike. Hookup is simple, requiring only a single XLR or 1⁄4" cable from your mixing console and power. Additional active monitors can be chained together via the XLR Link Output jack on the rear panel.

Crystal-Clear Highs
High-frequency (HF) content can easily make or break your performance. Too much and the sound becomes brittle and obnoxious, too little and it sounds muddy and poorly defined. The EUROLIVE DSP Series’ 1.75" titanium-diaphragm compression driver provides natural-sounding high end, with an ultra-wide 90° x 45° sound dispersion pattern.

    Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE VP1220D Active 550 Watt 12" Speaker:

    I bought a pair of these for a small church. Never was a big fan of behringer but the deal was so good I gave it a shot. Best decision I could've made.
    First thing I noticed right off the bat was how good the sound quality was. Then I realized the speakers were in a wood cabinet not plastic...(hence the sound quality). I weighed it at 46.6 pounds which was also great because I later hung the speakers from the ceiling. The class d amp is nice and small which helps. Also the controls on it were simple (level, treble and bass).
    Being that it's a small church I didn't need too much power, but on a side note (behringer does not give the rms numbers which is what really counts -it's only 150 rms for the woofer). The only real issue I had with it was there was no low cut on the speaker.
    With that being said, if you have a don't have a huge building to fill with sound - these will make a great choice. They are absolutely fantastic sounding speakers.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE VP1220D Active 550 Watt 12" Speaker:

      2 weeks before I saw and purchased these speakers I spent almost as much to repair one powered speaker that I had. I have these speakers connected in my studio but have yet to field test them which I plan to do next month. I think they are a good deal for the money.

        Not bad for small venue, but I wouldn't DJ with these in any wedding or party event unless it was small.
