Behringer B1520 PRO Passive PA Speaker
Coming from the popular budget-friendly brand, the Behringer B1520 Pro offers good specs at a very reasonable price point.
To start with, it houses a 15" LF Driver and a 1.75" HF Driver, both of which are big for the price.
As expected, it is not meant for big venues, but it can handle small to medium venues quite well with its peak power handling of 1200W and max SPL of 96dB.

The Behringer B1520 Pro continues to rake in positive reviews from many DJs, musicians, sound engineers and event coordinators. And one user summarizes market sentiment nicely by saying that it is unbelievably good for its price. Sound clarity, good bottom end, balanced highs and lows, and good dispersion are just a few of the many commendations it has gathered. Build quality also got a lot of thumbs up, even from those who are doing mobile gigs.
Some users cautioned that the B1520 is not to be driven hard, but they report that when used within proper settings, it does work well. There were some who encountered issues after some use, but they were able to get in and make the fixes themselves.
The Behringer B1520 was on our recommended list until October 2019 when we conducted a major review of the category and found there were more highly rated options to recommend, such as the JBL JRX215 which you'll find in our guide to The Best Passive PA Speakers.
