The Behringer B1500D PRO Eurolive active subwoofer is a thoughtfully designed sub with a massive 1400 watts of power. It is a sort of younger sibling to the Behringer B1800D PRO, which pushes the same wattage through a slightly larger speaker. This B1500D is a solid option to help a live bassist achieve a good balance in a smaller room or venue. Behringer's larger subs might be the better choice for a DJ or electronic musician looking to move a little more air across a dance floor in the same-sized room.
An Excellently Designed 15-inch SpeakerThe Behringer B1500D employs a 15-inch long-excursion speaker that is specially designed to maintain tonal consistency with excellent heat gain management. It delivers its clean yet powerful bass with a Behringer-designed Class D amplifier. It comes with highly musical control knobs for obtaining maximal control over your sound.
Many Thoughtful and Useful FeaturesThe Behringer B1500D PRO Eurolive is distinguished by a number of unique features that set it apart from most powered subwoofers. First of all, its state-of-the-art 1400-watt Class-D amplifier utilizes innovative active electronics to monitor and automatically adjust for dynamic over-excursion, thermal gain, and over-peak limit protection. This ensures that your sound is always great and that your speakers are protected from unforeseen dynamic surges or cross-feeds. There is a built-in active stereo crossover that delivers true high-pass filtered output when the woofer is used in conjunction with full-range satellite loudspeakers. There is a variable High Cut control to get the sound aligned properly. Finally, a tunable Bass Boost and a Phase switch allow for maximal control over your low-frequency sound.
A Boost Frequency knob gives you a linear frequency selector with range between 45 Hz and 90 Hz. The Boost switch then gives your selected frequency a +6 dB boost. The B1500D also features a High Cut dial to assure that the overtones of your low-end signal are crisp and well-defined. A Level knob gives you a wide margin of input gain. There is also a Phase switch to reverse the output phase should you encounter phase cancellation between the subwoofer and tops. Bright and attractive LEDs show you power status, signal present, and signal peaks at a glance.
Ready For Whatever You Throw At ItThe B1500D PRO features balanced XLR ins and outs. The balanced XLR Thru jacks allow you to daisy chain with additional enclosures.
Don't Let The Size Fool YouThe B1500D PRO Eurolive delivers its 1400 watts of power from a cabinet measuring 18 x 28 x 19 inches. It achieves this size-to-power ratio with one of Behringer's custom-designed Class-D amplifiers. These cut down on the weight of the circuitry and also run cooler without the need for added fans.

Class-D amplifiers (with switch-mode power supplies) drive the custom-designed low frequency drivers for sonically optimized output. And the best part of all--the B1500D PRO provides a much better power-to weight ratio than many competing active subwoofers. Powered by 1400 Watts through 15-inch speakers. As always, the speakers are made by Behringer in their own factory.
Put simply, these cool-running systems are much lighter, making them ultra-easy to transport and set up-- and the no-compromise design means you get amazingly-deep, chestpounding bass that will keep the party going all night long. They'll add needed bottom-end to your active full-range speaker system.
What is Class-D Technology?Instead of operating relatively continuously like Class AB circuits, Class-D amps switch on and off thousands of times per second, delivering power only when needed. In other words, the amplifier is either fully on or fully off, which significantly reduces power losses from the output devices given off as heat. Less heat means the amps don't need massive heat sinks, and that means they can make them lighter. Behringer's no-compromise design means the B1500D PRO will deliver full power with incredible fidelity all night long, without the need for lengthy rest cycles.
When used in conjunction with switching-mode power supplies, which don't require huge and heavy transformers, the Class-D amplifiers provide tremendous dynamic punch and superior fidelity. The resulting speaker systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up.
Custom-Designed TransducersThe transducers (woofers and tweeters) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear, so they don't cut any corners. Behringer's custom-designed and built the transducers from scratch. Not only do we wind their own voice coils, we process the paper pulp into cones and even machine their own backplates. This enables them to control the quality, and frankly, make better components.
Take ControlThe B1500D PRO features balanced XLR inputs and outputs, as well as balanced XLR Thru jacks for connecting additional enclosures. A Boost Frequency knob targets a boost frequency between 45 Hz and 90 Hz. Flick the Boost switch to give your selected frequency a +6 dB boost. These subs also feature a High Cut dial to control the upper corner frequency for the subwoofer's amplifier. The High Cut dial does not affect the Thru signals, only signals directed to the subwoofer (however, it does affect the signals sent out through the Output sockets of the subwoofer to reach the full-range speakers). A Level knob controls the input gain, and the Phase switch reverses output phase to compensate for frequency cancellation between the subwoofer and satellite speakers. LEDs show operational status at a glance, including power, signal present and input overloads.
Which Speaker Do I Need?As you have probably noticed, they make these subwoofers in two different woofer sizes. Which one is right for you? An 18" woofer has more surface area with which to move air than a 15". If you're engineering sound for a small jazz combo in a small club, the B1500D Pro might be all the speaker you need. If you need to provide pounding techno sounds to a standing room only nightclub, the B1800D Pro might be the better choice.
ValuePlenty of power, light weight, amazing sound, tough durability and affordability-- with the B1500D Pro you get it all.
