OVERVIEW

An affordable, lightweight yet durable PA loudspeaker that will faithfully deliver your sound.

The VS1220 loudspeaker provides exceptional sound quality at an extremely attractive price-point, is supremely portable, and well-suited for all sorts of sound reinforcement applications.

Exceptional Sound Quality
Capable of handling input levels up to 600 Watts, the EUROLIVE VS1220 PA loudspeaker delivers exceptional sound quality. The powerful 12" long-excursion driver cranks out big tone in the bottom end and mid-range, while the wave-guide mounted electro-dynamic HF (High-Frequency) drivers output crisp and detailed highs. The VS1220’s wide frequency bandwidth and extensive dynamic range make it ideal for a multitude of applications.

High-Impact Bass
In order to produce tight, deep bass, a loudspeaker has to move lots of air. EUROLIVE loudspeakers accomplish this by using powerful, long-excursion LF (Low Frequency) drivers that are handmade in Behringer's factory. While some companies are content to use “off-the-shelf” drivers, Behringer custom-designs each LF driver to perfectly match each application. The VS1220 features an extremely powerful 12" long-excursion LF driver in a tuned enclosure, providing rich, tight bass all the way down to 60Hz.

Crystal-Clear Highs
High-frequency 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. VS1220's specially designed HF transducers, mounted in a proprietary elliptical wave-guide, deliver natural-sounding, high-end in an ultra-wide 80° x 40° sound dispersion pattern.

The VS1220 speaker has been optimized for maximum reliability through the integrated overload-protection circuitry, ensuring ultimate high-frequency driver protection. Designed to stand up to the rigors of the road, the VS1220 is built to look and sound great, even after years of rugged abuse.

Versatility
VS1220’s unique trapezoidal design makes it ideal for use in FOH (Front-of-House), as well as floor-wedge and side-fill monitor applications. Enclosures can be clustered, stacked, or even stand-mounted thanks to the built-in 35mm (1.375") pole socket.

The Technical Stuff
The VS1220 is capable of extremely high sound pressure levels (93dB full space 1W @ 1m) and provides a 60Hz to 20kHz frequency range. And at just under 38 lb. (17.1 kg), the VS1220 is supremely portable. The internal crossover point is fixed at 3.5kHz. Standard 1/4" TS connectors are provided.

FEATURES
  • High-performance 600-watt 2-way PA speaker system (150 Watts Continuous/600 Watts Peak Power)
  • Exceptional sound quality, wide frequency bandwidth and dynamic range
  • Extremely powerful 12" long-excursion driver provides incredibly deep bass and acoustic power
  • Proprietary dual electro-dynamic drivers for exceptional high-frequency reproduction
  • Elliptical wave guide design for ultrawide sound dispersion
  • Integral tripod and stand adapter
  • Ergonomically shaped handles for easy transport
  • Rugged steel grille for optimal speaker protection
  • 2 professional ¼" jack connectors
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
  • Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany

I DJ on the side and ordered these. I am very happy with the purchase! They are light and durable, the handles are super sweet. On the sound quality, I think they are very good (sure, you can spend more and get better quality). But at the price, it's like spending the money for a Honda, but buying a Lexus! they can handle major power and hit pretty hard for some 12s I think. I have only really worked them out a handful of times, so we'll see how they do after a while, but I would definitely recommend them for sure!!

I got this speaker to be added to our system in a small church. We had two 10" phonic speakers and needed to dedicate one to be a monitor. We play contemporary music.
I noticed right away the superior low end sound compared to what we had before. With this speaker we can feel the bass not just hear it.
One the highs the speaker is weak. When playing recorded music it sounds a bit muffled. Fortunately I had a Pyle-Pro PAHT4 tweeter system I was not using. It improved the sound significantly, still I wish the speaker was better balanced and I did not had to add the tweeter box.
If I had to buy the speaker again I would go for the next model up.

    I needed speakers that could handle at least 600 watts. These speakers went way beyond my expectations being very clear with plenty of thump.

    Great bass and lower midrange. Sounds really good with a supplementary tweeter array. Do not buy unless you plan to add an additional external tweeter array.

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE VS1220 600W 12" PA Speaker:

      Good pair of PA Speakers I got restock ones to save a bit but they looked like New LOL...The front grill of 1 speaker is bent in several spots but the components: driver- 12in., horn, X-over circuit are solidly built and made. It has adapter hole for sitting the On-stage tri-pod Stand. Lovely, setup EZ if you play outdoor for a yard party. All you need is tou have a Power Amp. of about 1000W or a Powered Mixer - I prefer the Yamaha powered one - to extract all the power sound of these 1220 Behringer beast. I bought the 2-yr NEW replacement Warranty too. Just in case I blow these up..ha ha! MF.com's Restock is good to go guys, sell me these great pair of 600W - PA. speakers. Thanks!

      Comments about Behringer EUROLIVE VS1220 600W 12" PA Speaker:

      This speaker is overall very bad. It has zero low end for a 12" woofer. Just tapping the mic lightly causes the woofer to distort and sound bad. The tweeter is not accurate and sounds harsh and doesn't clearly represent anything. This is what you can expect from such a cheap price. You've probably heard this a lot, but, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!
