The Behringer B205D is a super-cool and innovative little powered speaker! It essentially gives you a great personal monitor with easily accessible controls right on the front panel. In the same spot, you've got 2 x XLR / 1/4-inch inputs that can deliver phantom power as needed!
Your potential uses for the B205D speaker are numerous: It makes a great practice speaker for playing and singing; it's an excellent personal stage monitor; and it will even serve as a solid PA system for voice or music in small rooms or more intimate settings. Small as the Behringer B205D is, it's more versatile than most powered speakers out there, and you're sure to find many uses for it in your rig.
150 Highly Manageable Watts
The Behringer B205D gives you 150 watts of power, which is delivered through a single 5.25-inch premium-quality, full-range neodymium driver.
Everything You Need, Right Up Front
The B205D's super-smart front panel design gives you three separate inputs. Channels 1 and 2 accept XLR microphones, or line-level inputs. Press the Instrument button, and Channel 1 is ready to accomodate Hi-Z signals, so you can plug in your guitar or bass without needing a separate DI box. Hit the +48V button to send phantom power to any condenser mics you might be using. Each of the inputs has its own preamp onboard and independent Volume knobs right on the front panel!
Three Independent Inputs!
The third input on this baby gives you a stereo pair of RCA jacks, for running in MP3 or CD players, a DJ mixer, or any other RCA stereo source. You use this to practice along with recordings, or could turn your next party into an instant karaoke throwdown. Yes, please! Input 3 also has its own independent Volume knob.
Above the input section on he front panel, you'll find a solid 3-band EQ so that you can dial in the essential mix on the speaker correct for the use. If you're simply using the speaker to give remarks or a speech, you might want to drop the LF down so that you get a clearer and more direct sound. Conversely, if you're running hot guitars or keyboard through here, you might find yourself rolling back a bit on the high frequencies. It's your personal monitor -- set that EQ however you like it.
Will Link With Other Speakers
When you're ready to use the Behringer B205D in a system that will provide more sound coverage, simply use the balanced XLR "through" connector to link it with other loudspeakers in series.
Got A Mic Stand?
The final awesome detail on this neat little powered speaker is the incorporated mic stand mount that allows you to use it along with a mic stand and boom. This is one cleverly designed portable powered loudspeaker!

The Secret to B205D's Amazing Sound
Thanks to their revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology and internal switchmode power supplies, not only do B205D loudspeakers sound great, they weigh considerably less than most competing active speakers. They pump out 150 of the cleanest, punchiest Watts you've ever heard from a compact loudspeaker, and you can link additional active loudspeaker systems via the handy THRU socket. A built in mixer provides three input channels, including a switchable instrument-ready input (no DI required), and also features a dedicated 3-band EQ (bass/mid/treble) for simple, yet effective tonal control.
Put the Sound Where You Want It
Space limitations often make it impossible to place full-sized monitor wedges where they can do the most good--and passive monitors require lots of external amplifiers and processing gear to function properly. All this adds up to even more gear to move, and if you don't know what you're doing, you can easily damage passive monitors by applying too much, or even worse, too little power to them. With the B205D, Behringer has taken all the guesswork out, giving each loudspeaker its own 150-Watt, Class-D amplifier specifically designed as the perfect mate for the custom-engineered 5.25" neodymium driver.
Say Goodbye to Back-breaking Floor Wedges
By using an internal switch-mode power supply, Behringer reduced the weight of the B205D to a mere 7.0 lbs (3.2 kg). This means that instead of bringing in your old passive floor wedges one-at-a-time, you can carry all your monitors in one trip--without even breaking a sweat. They are small enough to mount on mic stands (each speaker includes a special mic stand integration system), on a tabletop, or they can be placed directly atop a piano or electronic keyboard.
Class-D Technology Delivers High Power, Low Weight
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 the power losses in the output devices.
When used in conjunction with switching mode power supplies, these Class-D amplifiers provide tremendous dynamic punch and superior fidelity. The resulting speakers systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up. This no-compromise design means your B205Ds deliver full power with incredible fidelity all night long, without the need for rest cycles.
Let's face it; the drivers (otherwise known as speakers) are the only part of a sound system you actually hear. While some manufacturers outsource theirs, Behringer custom-designs and builds speakers from scratch: winding voice coils, processing paper pulp into cones, even machining speaker back plates and frames. This enables Behringer to control the quality, keep production costs down and frankly, to make better components. The premium-grade 5.25" neodymium driver was designed specifically and optimized solely for use in the B205D.
Instant PA System
With just a single B205D loudspeaker system and a microphone, you can set up an instant, high-quality sound system. Thanks to the built-in preamp section, you just connect a dynamic mic and raise and lower the volume with the LEVEL control. Plug in your sound source (CD or MP3 player), place the speaker on a tabletop or mic stand and power up. It's just that easy. And if you need more coverage, you can chain together as many as you like via the convenient Link Output XLR connector.
Stereo Music System
You can even use two B205Ds for stereo playback of your MP3, CD or cassette deck without any additional hardware--pretty cool for playing background music or making announcements. Just plug the appropriate stereo "breakout" adapter (not included) into your deck's output jack, run one cable to each loudspeaker and set the Level and EQ controls the same on both B205Ds.
When it comes to live monitoring, it just doesn't get any more personal than this. With the B205D, you can literally put the sound where you want it--and the sound quality will simply astound you. It is small and light enough to mount on a mic stand (it comes with an integration kit that even works with boom stands), yet powerful enough to be used as a small, high-quality PA system. The built-in 3-channel mixer provides tremendous versatility and even allows additional systems to be linked as slaves.
The Eurolive B205D provides highquality sound, tremendous functionality and versatility for very little dough. Best of all, since the B205D is so compact and lightweight, making it easy for you to load in or out at the gig. Compare the B205D to the competition and you'll own Behringer with money to spare.
