BEHRINGER Introduces EUROLIVE B1200D Powered Subwoofer

The Behringer team keeps expanding its speaker lineup and they continue with the newest subwoofer in the Eurolive lineup. The new B1200D is a 12-inch powered subwoofer with the internal 500 watt amplifier is on it's way to retail stores everywhere. We originally reviewed the Behringer Eurolive B1500D which is the 15-inch subwoofer version and we still use it for gigs and performances to this day. If the B1200D subwoofer is as good as its bigger sibling, then Behringer may have another (compact) winner on its hands. The 12-inch subwoofer is more compact, making it another choice for DJ's who don't want to carry a big setup, but want pretty big sound. We'll possibly get one of these in the lab to review, so stay tuned. Check out the press release and original B1500D review below.

BEHRINGER Introduces EUROLIVE B1200D Powered Subwoofer

3/26/2013 Seattle, WA — BEHRINGER unveiled today the latest addition to its EUROLIVE family, the ultra-compact B1200D 500-Watt active subwoofer. Based on the company’s highly successful B1500D-PRO and B1800D-PRO models, the B1200D is ideal for small to mid-sized venues, or mobile DJs and musicians who want to add massive bottom-end to existing full-range speaker systems via a more compact, easy to transport subwoofer.

Powered by a 500-Watt Class-D amplifier with comprehensive LF extension, thermal and clip limit protection, the B1200D features a high-efficiency, Class-D amplifier that not only significantly reduces overall weight, but provides the same dynamic punch and fidelity typically associated with much larger, more expensive systems.

A built-in active stereo crossover provides high-pass filtered outputs for full-range loudspeakers and an internal limiter provides woofer protection. The B1200D features balanced XLR inputs and outputs, as well as balanced XLR Thru jacks for connecting additional enclosures. A Boost Frequency knob lets the user select any frequency from 45 - 90 Hz. Then, much like a “mini-parametric EQ,” engaging the Boost switch augments the selected frequency by +10 dB.

Also provided is a High Cut filter that controls the upper-corner frequency for the internal amplifier and a Level knob, which controls input gain. A Phase switch reverses the output phase for proper alignment between the B1200D and satellite speakers. Power, Signal, and Clip LEDs show operational status at a glance for perfect monitoring. BEHRINGER designs and manufactures all their own transducers in-house—including the powerful 12” long-excursion, low-frequency transducer found in the B1200D.

The EUROLIVE B1200D is covered by BEHRINGER’s 3-Year Warranty program, is expected in U.S. stores in Q2 2013 at an approximate street price of the B1200D is $399.99 ($799.99 MSRP).
