A complete, easy-transport, easy set-up system.

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 Speaker System comes with 2 10" 2-way powered satellites and a dedicated powered 15" subwoofer. The Matrix-1000 V2 has a built-in 3-channel 700W power amplifier, 3 independent volume controls, electronic crossover with equalization, and VCA compressor.

The circuitry is designed and fine-tuned to integrate all components for the best possible sound. There is no need to tweak or finesse settings on a crossover or compressor to make your system sound great. Simply roll the system into place on its heavy duty casters, plug in the AC, connect the two speaker cables, run two XLR cables to your mixer and you're ready to go

Built-in 3-channel amplifier
The 15" subwoofer enclosure is divided into two separate compartments. The front chamber serves as the cabinet for the 15" subwoofer. The rear chamber houses all of the system's electronic circuitry, which includes the amplification for all three components, power supply and preamps. The 15" subwoofer has a power handling capability of 400 watts and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms.

10" satellite speakers

The B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 satellites are loaded with a custom designed 10" speaker and 1" titanium diaphragm compression driver. The "horn" is a 90 x 60 elliptical waveguide that can be rotated 90 to optimize the dispersion pattern to best suit your particular application. These versatile B-52 speakers are pole-mountable and can sit as stage monitors. They also include 3/8"”16 tpi flying hardware for small venue permanent installations. The rounded front of the satellite speaker is a perfect fit for the convex face of the subwoofer, allowing you to stack, roll and transport the entire Matrix-1000 V2 in and out of a venue in record time.

Transporting the system

To transport the B-52 Matrix-1000 V2, simply set the subwoofer on its casters and place the satellite speakers on to the subwoofer's front panel, facing down. Fasten the satellites with the included locking strap using the handles on either side of the subwoofer cabinet. Place the included cover over the entire PA speaker system and you're ready to move the Matrix-1000 V2 with ease.

Sounds great but fan noise a problem


from Toronto, Canada

Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

This system sounds great, especially wonderful for vocals. I would NOT recommend it for home theatre use. The fan noise ( 2 loud fans ) is very LOUD. I returned the system because of this, because I wanted to use it for smaller intimate gigs as well as in my home. And the fan noise prohibited this. Most amps have fans these days but you can find them without fans for home use. But for gigs the fan noise wouldn't be a problem at all. FOR LIVE SHOWS this looks like a great system. Also, the plastic used in making the system is VERY BAD smelling and I didn't like this in my home. Perhaps the smell lessons over time.

Terrific System


from Port Orchard, WA

Comments about B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System:

This system is just the thing. Though it is capable of getting very loud, it maintains its clarity while doing so. When I first received it, I gout out my mixer and set it up in my living room, connected to my TV. First I played a Steve Vai DVD. The bass drum impacts literally felt like someone was stomping on the floor! Then I put in a movie, and my wife and I watched it. A few minutes into the movie, we forgot we were listening to a PA system! The audio was clear, there was no hiss, it was exactly what a speaker/amp system should be--transparent. What this means to musicians is that this system will delay the onset of feedback compared to systems with "spikey" response curves, and, if your board puts out a good signal, your audience will actually be able to hear whar you are saying/playing. (Could be a problem for some bands...) We run the drums through this with a subharmonic synthesizer. The clubs just shake with sound. I transport this system in my '87 Aries K wagon, along with the rest of my guitar equipment.
