Product Description

For way too long, boardrooms, classrooms and restaurants around the world have had to put up with bad sound. You know, the kind generated by those flimsy "tin-cans-mounted-in-ceiling-tiles" (that no one seems to remember ever having installed in the first place). You can kiss "bad sound" goodbye forever thanks to the great-sounding CE500A loudspeaker systems from Behringer -- and they're available in your choice of black or white.

Features

- Multi-purpose, 80-Watt, active speaker for commercial indoor installations (restaurants, shops, exhibitions), multimedia, home recording studio and audio/video production

- Exceptional sound quality, wide dynamic range and ultra-linear frequency range from 60 Hz to 23 kHz

- Powerful 5" woofer with extremely light-weight cellulose cone and high-resolution tweeter

- Integrated limiter for ultimate system control and speaker protection

- Ultra-low noise Mic/Line input with Volume control and peak LED

- Additional Line output connector allows linking of additional speaker systems

- Ultra-flexible wall-mount brackets included

- High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

- Conceived and designed by Behringer Germany

We Mean Business

The CE500A speaker system is ideal for business environments, letting you enjoy full, clear sound over a wide listening area. Specifically designed to complement commercial indoor facilities such as restaurants, shops, exhibition halls and more, CE500As come equipped with special mounting brackets, allowing them to be mounted on walls or suspended from above. This means you can aim them, which is handy considering people have ears on the sides of their heads, not the top!

More Like Studio Monitors Than "Tin-Cans"

Inside these multi-purpose active loudspeakers are powerful 5 1/2" woofers and high-resolution 1/2" tweeters powered by an internal 80-Watt amplifier. These transducers have been designed to work with the onboard amp seamlessly, meaning there is not too much, or even worse, too little wattage to adequately power the system. And the sound quality of the CE500A puts those aforementioned "tin-cans" to shame.

Serious Connections

Connecting the CE500A couldn't be easier, thanks to the convenient rear panel which provides a standard XLR mic socket and RCA jacks for hooking up a tape/CD or even MP3 deck. To raise and lower the mic volume, just turn the Level control (RCA volume levels are controlled by the source device). To run two CE500As in stereo mode, connect your playback deck to the right RCA jack on one loudspeaker and the left jack on the other. You can even chain together as many CE500As as you'd like via the handy Link XLR socket.

Instant PA System

You don't even need a mixer to use the CE500A. You can plug one into the wall outlet, connect a microphone and start talking -- sometimes that's all you need. Whether you need speakers for the conference room, the waiting room or the lobby, the CE500A business speakers will elevate your company status and get your message across. Stop yelling into those tin-cans... everyone will thank you.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Small P.A. for small situations."
Sound: a little boxy, tell the truth. Pretty rich and full for the speaker size though. I wouldn't necessarily use these as studio monitors for mixing but they'd be excellent to listen to the mixdown in a room instead of near-fields. They could use a powered sub. Feature: They can take a hit better than a set of monitors. They're lightweight and small. Behringer should include a handle in their hardware with these. They have RCA red/white in (they're mono, but if you have two one gets the red and one gets the white), balanced 3 pin microphone in and a balanced pin out for sending the signal to another speaker. I would like a 1/4 in, but you can't have it all, can ya. That's why Hosa maked an adapter for everything. The speakers have clip/limit protection, but I haven't gotten to that point yet. Get a few sets and daisy chain them with the buffered signal out, or daisy chain to a sub with built in crossover. Ease of Use: Unbox, plug in, RCA in, and turn on. That's it. Pretty easy if I do say so myself. Quality: I was looking for something to PA around the house, something that my wife could use as a portable PA, and something I could possibly use as a sound reinforcement for my TV. These fit the bill on all parts, and are more rugged than home audio equipment or studio monitors. There might be a sacrifice of sound quality, but I'm not really worried about it. Value: Value is subjective, but for my personal needs, this is a high value. My wife would not be able to lug any of the standard-sized PA speakers to work in my price range. Fitment in multiple situations is minimal with the bulky thermoplastic powered speakers, and imagine how horrifying it would be to suddenly have a small child dime the volume on a Class D 1000w speaker when watching a sit-com. The main point however, is that there is almost no competitive-sized PA speakers on the market to this. It's assumed that the market doesn't want them because they don't buy them, but they don't buy them because they aren't sold. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them, and I don't expect much. The Wow Factor: The design of these is such that they try to minimize Wow factors. They're supposed to be unobtrusive, like most business music reinforcement speakers. They're fairly rugged, fairly loud, fairly light, and very utilitarian. The wow factor is that they do their job. Overall: These are kid-sized powered P.A. speakers that put out 80w (peak, I think, I imagine it's 40w program). Smaller than a shoebox for an adult foot, and a little over 10lb each. 5.5in driver with a piezo tweeter. They also come with hardware to mount to a wall.
Style of Music: everything from black metal to alt country and classical.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
