Behringer Eurolive B212D : Recensione di ericthegreat (content in English)
"great sound for the money"
I actually use this speaker as my guitar amp. Since I play through a Line 6 Pod XT Live amp modeler, I needed something with an absolute flat response, and be crisp and clear enough to hear the subtle differences in the digital cabinet models. I also needed power. Lots of it. I had been using a pair of Alesis M1 Active studio monitors for playing in the home studio or occasionally in a very small venue, and the response was perfect. I had the cleanest signal I could want, but studio monitors are not made for a large stage. Guitar amps were out since they color the signal, I tried a keyboard amp which was a disaster so I made up my mind to buy a powered PA speaker. When I went to Guitar Center, they let me play my rig through the various speakers on the showroom floor there. I played a JBL 15" first, which seemed pretty decent. Definitely had the power. Next I played through the Mackie Thump and it sounded as if someone sliced the high end right out of it. Then I played a Behringer B212D. The clarity of the sound as compared to the JBL and Mackie was so completely obvious from the first chord that I knew I was going to walk out of the store with that speaker. Even the salesman was surprised at the difference, especially considering that Behringer is considered 'lower end'. In any case, I've since used it at many gigs and have been absolutely thrilled with the performance. I can crank it past the level of human tolerance without a hint of feedback and there is almost zero line noise at those high volumes. I do have to turn the bass way down on the EQ as it can 'muddy up' with the bass player. But other than its perfect for what I use it for. If I had one miniscule complaint it would be that it should have a power indicator light on the front so I could tell if it was on or not as I use it on its side as a wedge.
