As you know, it’s crucial for your live band to have the right equipment in order to play a gig. The most important thing you need when playing a gig is a good P.A. System. You can buy yourself a complete P.A. package or you can assemble a P.A. by it’s individual components. The three main components in a P.A. system are a mixer, amplifier and speakers. Today I’m going to talk about a speaker system that has it’s own built-in power amp, the B-52 Matrix 2000 Speaker Sound System.
There are a lot of advantages to buying the B-52 Matrix 2000 speaker sysem. One of the most overlooked pieces of equipment when assembling a P.A. system is the amplifier that powers the speakers. I’ve seen a lot of musicians who are just starting out purchase a very nice speaker package with a mixer and totally forget to buy a power amp for them. That’s why it’s so nice to have the amplifier that powers the speakers built right into the speaker system itself.
Another thing I really like about the B-52 Matrix 2000 is the fact that it includes an 18″ subwoofer. Since bass frequencies are sent in mono, you really only need one subwoofer and having a big 18″ subwoofer really makes the low end thump. The subwoofer on the B-52 system also houses the power amp and crossover that feed the two satellite speakers. Needless to say, this makes the subwoofer very heavy. Luckily, casters are included and mounted to the subwoofer/amplifier making it easy to roll around. That makes moving the system a whole lot easier.
The satellite speakers are each loaded with a 12″ woofer and a constant directivity horn. They are well matched to the subwoofer with the crossover tuned primarily for live band music. I have seen DJ’s using this system as well and it sounds very good with full rich bass and good clear highs. The power total is 1200 watts with 6oo watts powering the subwoofer and 300 watts powering each individual speaker. That’s a lot of power and is more than enough to fill small to medium sized venues.
The system comes with zippered covers for each piece of the system which is nice for hauling and keeping the dust off everything while you are storing it. The casters make hauling the entire system easy as you can stack the satellite speakers face-down on the subwoofer and roll the whole thing wherever you need to go at the gig.
This is a very nice, complete speaker package that will have your band sounding it’s best. You’ll really appreciate all the nice low-end that the subwoofer puts out and the fact that you don’t have to haul around a separate amplifier rack to power everything.
