In stock at Zzounds.com
Behringer Eurolive B1500XP 3000-Watt active subwoofer provides the ultimate in low-frequency reproduction, and the built-in stereo crossover makes it ideally suited for use with any of their active 2-way loudspeakers. Loaded with a 3000-Watt Class-D amplifier, TURBOSOUND 15" long-excursion Low-Frequency (LF) transducer and an incredible array of professional features, the B1500XP produces extreme levels of low-end punch, with the definition and clarity typically reserved for much larger systems. Packaged in a completely redesigned and lightweight enclosure, the B1500XP is their most robust and articulate subwoofer design ever!
Put simply, these cool-running systems are significantly lighter than their predecessors, making them ultra-easy to transport and set up - and their no-compromise design means you get amazingly-deep, chest-pounding bass that will keep the party going all night long.
Class-D - Massive Power, Perfect SoundThanks to Behringer's revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology, they are able to provide you with enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.
TURBOSOUND - The Sound DifferenceA world-leading British designer and manufacturer of professional loudspeaker systems, TURBOSOUND has been building cutting-edge speakers for more than 30 years, and won the venerable Queen's Award for Innovation numerous times for their highly acclaimed loudspeaker designs. You will find TURBOSOUND's distinguished products not only touring with the best-known international artists, but also in countless major venues worldwide.
Take ControlThe B1500XP 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 +10 dB boost. The B1500XP also has a High Cut dial that provides precision control over the upper-corner frequency of 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 Output socket signals sent out to full-range speakers). A Level knob controls the input gain, and the Phase switch reverses the 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. Rounding out this stellar set of features is an RMS and Peak limiter, which provides the ultimate in protection for the TURBOSOUND LF driver.
Which Speaker Do I Need?As you have probably noticed, Behringer makes 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 running sound for a jazz combo in a dinner club, a single B1800XP might be all you'll need. But if you need to serve up pulse-pounding techno at a large, standing-room-only dance club, you might need a pair of B1800XPs to really ignite the dance floor.
Sound ValueThe B1500XP PA subwoofer stands head and shoulders above the rest of the pack and delivers exceptional performance, even when pushed to the limit. Lightweight, but massively powerful with 3000 Watts of Class-D power, a TURBOSOUND LF transducer and state-of-the-art onboard active stereo crossover, the B1500XP is ideal for any music application - at a price that is unheard of in this class.

Reviews From Buyers
I just bought 2 of these and let me tell you. The sound is incredible and the best part is I've only tested and used one. It has me second guessing if I even need 2. So much power it's unbelievable. And the sound quality is amazing with so much definition. This puppy can hit across all the bass spectrum and can get very low. Plenty of head room, adjustments and features.Cons: Well built and solid, but quite heavy. Also would have loved if Behringer wouldn't have provided optional caster wheels. I want to add them, but scared it may void my warranty.Overall: For the mobile DJs I highly recommend these, just keep in mind they are solid and heavy. Considering the quality of sound, and the amount of power you are getting. These are a dream for small budget studios. So the bottom line here is, don't hesitate. Just get them, YOU WILL "NOT" REGRET IT!
