Big Bang Without a Big Price

The VQ1500D has shown me a side of Behringer that I have not seen before. I had a JBL 18" sub fail on me. This purchase was a quick and easy remedy that would allow me to get through the next big. Like most, I dismissed Behringer as a sub-par company that produced a sub-par product. This active sub enclosure proved me wrong. The advertised 500 watts is peak power; a marketing trick most have fallen for. I am not sure what the RMS rating is at the moment, but I can tell you that this little 15" enclosure blows my JBL away in terms of performance, punch, clarity, and durability. The class D amp has a limited that keeps the speaker and amp safe. The volume of the sub plays a trick on the ears and makes you think it is louder than it is. The 15" speaker is right and extremely responsive. My only regret is that I could have purchased the 18" model of this sub for the same price. I am not going to let that ow me down though, I doubt anyone will ever know I am running a 15" instead of an 18" sub. The VQ1500D has a permanent home in my live set up.

Great Sub Great Price

I needed a sub to replace an 18" JBL and decided to save money and try what is considered by many to be a cheap, entry level piece of equipment. My only regret is that I did not see the 18" VQ1800D for the same price. However, the 15" VQ1500D is not giving up anything to it's big brother from what I can tell. This active sub has no problem doing its job. In fact, The Behringer has more punch, clarity, and volume than my JBL (no, I am not providing the model number for the JBL. I am not bashing JBL's line or name). The built in crossover is phenomenal. It makes dialing in a good sound for a live band or DJ event effortless. If you find any phasing issues they are quickly cleared up with the touch of a switch on the rear panel. I was impressed enough to make a second order and add a pair of Behringer VS1520 mains. They should compliment this sub perfectly. I want to thank Patrick and the rest of the staff for their quick service and shipping. Everything was on time, and the sub was packed well enough to survive anything FedEx could throw at it.

Behringer VQ 1500 D...sweet deal!!!

First of all for the Sweetwater price is a great deal. I purchased the Behringer VQ 1500D to add some bass to my (Average at best) DJ system. I was using two 2-way powered loud speakers that I was pushing hard for every gig and trying not to over drive them but not anymore. With this sub I don't come close to over driving any of the speakers. Adding this powered sub to my system is the biggest and best thing I ever did. The performance is spectacular , the construction and appearance is total pro. The rear controls allow me to Phase my bass and customize the amount of bass I need. This sub pushes the sound through out my house and is heard in every room at the same level. Bass is one of the frequencies that can be heard anywhere. I cant say enough about this product. I tried other 18 inch subs before but they were a bit to floppy and a bear to transfer to gigs. This 15" is perfect and it allows me to use another one if I need to. But for now its plenty. Later, DJ NO REQUEST Santa Barbara. CA.

Behringer VQ1500D

Lots of thump for the $$$$ This sub has punch and thump for only 500 watts. Clean, quiet and lightweight.I have the Behringer Eurolive B115D for on top and they match perfectly. Mid to large rooms 200-1000 peps. Outside we had no prob pushing them with the full power trio and everything mic'd-up.

House of Worship

We have a small room and a small congregation (about 125 on average). This sub is quiet. This sub is clean. This sub is loud! I'm not even @ noon and it is thumping. It would blow your hair back if you wanted it to. We have digital drums and run our bass direct. I can't even begin to tell you the improved clarity we have achieved. We needed thump, and could not achieve it without a lot of volume. Thanks to this sub, we can keep our volume at a comfortable level for the "old folks" but we gained the "feel" that all the young pple were missing. We had a youth night recently and had the opportunity to push this sub and it was bad news! I love this sub. It is great for a small room and 1 is plenty! 5 stars

Sweetwater Advice

Jed Elliott

As a gigging musician with a 4-piece band, I needed a powered sub that would give me plenty of low end to fill up the size any venue we might play. I've been using a pair of these subs since October of 2014. We use them on gigs where we need to mic the kick drum and have more bass than our bassist's amp can provide on its own. They give us plenty of volume with headroom to spare. Even for outside gigs, they've been great. We've also had to leave the subs on for 5 and 6 hours at a time and, because of the class-d wiring, we've never had a problem with the amps overheating.
