Rock Band monitor,,, YES and YES !!!!!
I almost did not buy this B205D because almost all the reviews I read and everywhere else ONLY talk about using this small monitor in coffee shops or small acoustic duo's, I found like almost NO reviews of it being used in a full on rock band,,, so here's a rare "rock band use" review of this monitor.
I'm in a pro, steady working rock band in Vegas and we do play loud, not ear bleeding loud on stage but we're at around 100db in FOH at most of our gigs, we also have sound and light persons provided at almost all our gigs, and at our weekly casino club house gig.
I'm putting the whole entire band thru my B205D including my bass guitar !!!!!
All the vocals, 2 guitars, drums and my bass guitar are ALL in this little monitor, mounted on its own mic stand right in front of me beside my vocal mic stand.
How to run this monitor, put as much electric guitars and vocals as you want and as loud as you want, back the bass and drums off a bit and don't run them really hot and you will be fine and you will still hear everything perfectly and in your face loud.
As mentioned I'm the bass player and I am running my bass thru this monitor, I back off the low EQ to around 10 or 11 o'clock and leave the mid and high EQ set flat at 12 o'clock, doing that helps keep my low B string from causing the Behringer from farting out, pumping my low B string will make the monitor fart out once in a while if I'm playing real loud and hard but it's really not that noticeable.
On stage I'm running a new Fender Rumble 500 bass 2x10 combo amp (highly recommended) and that does the heavy lifting on stage so I'm not using the B205D for any thump, I'm using it only to hear myself really well and to hear the rest of everything my band is doing.
My band is playing stuff like STP, Nirvana, Sublime and Zepplin just to give you an idea of what I'm pushing thru this monitor and we are by no means quite on stage.
Reason I got this monitor, I'm not a big fan of using my in-ears and I wanted something smaller than a giant floor wedge taking up a big footprint on the stage (at our weekly house gig the stage is not huge, only about 25 to 30 feet wide and 15 to 20 feet deep) were a 4 piece band.
Anyhow, I would 100% recommend the Behringer B205D for a loud rock band stage monitor,,, this thing totally blew me away on how clean and loud it is.
