Thanks to Behringer's revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology and internal switch-mode power supplies, EUROLIVE VP1220D loudspeaker provides a much better power-to-weight ratio than competing active loudspeakers. Put simply, you get all the power and articulate sound without the backbreaking weight. The state-of-the-art EUROLIVE VP1220D loudspeaker system boasts 550 watts that will simply blow you away. The internal amplifiers and speakers are designed to function as a perfectly matched team, ensuring optimal sound every time you power up.
What’s the Big Deal About Class-D?
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 our amps don’t need massive heat sinks, and that means we can make them lighter. Our no-compromise design means your EUROLIVE D Series loudspeakers will deliver full power with incredible fidelity all night long, without the need for lengthy rest cycles.
Dynamic processing is one of the best ways to maximize output without sacrificing sound quality. The D Series' built-in circuitry automatically adjusts program content, allowing the loudspeaker to operate at extreme levels. It accomplishes this by reducing bass output slightly as you approach the limit of the transducers. This frees up LF (Low Frequency) amp and transducer resources so that higher overall volume can be realized. It’s like having a tiny soundman inside each cabinet constantly monitoring and tweaking output parameters.
In order to produce tight, deep bass, a loudspeaker has to move lots of air. EUROLIVE loudspeakers accomplish this by using powerful, long-excursion LF (Low Frequency) drivers that are handmade in our own factory. While some companies are content to use "off-the-shelf" drivers, we custom-design each LF driver to perfectly match each application. Features custom-designed LF drivers in a tuned enclosure, providing rich, tight bass all the way down to 55 Hz.
Instant PA System
With a single loudspeaker system and a dynamic microphone, you can set up an instant sound system. Just connect a mic directly to the built-in XLR mic preamp, place the loudspeaker on a tabletop or speaker stand, and power up. It's that easy. And if you need more coverage, you can chain together as many as you like via the convenient LINK OUTPUT XLR connector.
Ideal for FOH (Front-of-House) deployment, VP1220D's unique trapezoidal design also makes it the perfect choice for floor wedge and side fill monitor applications. Enclosure can be clustered, stacked, or even stand-mounted thanks to the built-in 1.38" (35 mm) pole socket.
The Technical Stuff
The VP1220D's trapezoidal enclosure allows multiple positioning options: 10° and 35° cluster or stacking mode and stand mounting, thanks to the built-in 35 mm (1.375") pole socket. It's capable of extremely high sound pressure levels (118 dB @ 1 m) and provides a 55 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range. And at just 44.2 lbs (20.1 kg), the VP1220D is supremely portable.
The VP1220D has been optimized for maximum reliability through our integrated overload-protection circuitry, ensuring ultimate high-frequency driver protection. Designed to stand up to the rigors of the road, these loudspeaker systems are built to last and made to perform!
