Built-in Sonic Maximizer to liven up your sound

Premium Celestion drivers for first-class sound quality

Celestion speakers have been powering the sound of rock music for over half a century. Musicians worldwide rely on Celestion speakers for their fantastic sound and exceptional reliability. Celestion tests each speaker rigorously to make sure you're getting a great-sounding speaker that's built to last. Sporting premium Celestion drivers, the B-52 Matrix-2500 is loaded with some of the best speakers you'll find anywhere.

B-52 - the relentless pursuit of excellence

B-52 Professional started about 30 years ago when Eli El-Kiss and his son Avi bought a small table saw and single sheet of plywood from a hardware store. Several hours later, they'd built their first speaker cabinet and presented it to a local distributor. Because of the exceptional quality of their speakers, Eli and Avi quickly received more than a hundred orders. Three decades later, they're still at it, applying the same relentless pursuit of excellence to their new products as they did to their first cabinet.
