B-52 LX-1515V3 Full Range Loudspeaker

The new LX-1515V3 delivers powerful and clean sound that will please your ears and rattle your chest. This 1000-watt full-range system features a quasi 3-way design with a sophisticated tapered array crossover network which directs low frequencies to both 15” speakers while limiting the midrange to only the top woofer. The result is improved low-end and clearer sound in the high frequency range. The ultra-efficient compression driver, mounted to a custom elliptical wave guide, delivers smooth mids and vivid highs that are not fatiguing to the ears.

Loudspeaker Specifications

This is the type of professional loudspeaker. Active loudspeakers have a built-in amplifier to power the speakers. Passive loudspeakers require an external amplifier to be properly powered.
High Frequency Driver Size
This is the size of the high frequency driver. Common sizes include 1", 1-1/2" and 2".
Low Frequency Driver Size
This is the size of the low frequency driver. Common sizes include 10", 12", and 15".
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
40 - 19,000 Hz
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
Not specified by manufacturer
Maximum Sound Pressure Level SPL
This is the maximum Sound Pressure Level (SPL) of the professional loudspeaker. The higher the SPL rating, the louder the monitors are able to go.
This is the horizontal and vertical audio dispersion of the professional loudspeaker. The dispersion is measured in degrees.

Peak Power Rating
This is the peak power output that the active loudspeakers is rated at.
Continuous Power Rating
This is the continuous power output that the active loudspeakers is rated at.
Amplifier Class

If the active loudspeaker has an internal equalizer it will be identified here.

Passive Power Specifications

Peak Power Handling
This is the maximum amount of power (measured in watts) that the speaker is designed to receive.
Program Power Handling
This is the amount of program power (measured in watts) that the speaker is designed to receive.
Continuous Power Handling
This is the amount of power (measured in watts) that the speaker is designed to receive continuously.

I was so pleasantly surprised… Great Speaker!!!

March 21, 2015

A few years ago I was determined to put an affordable PA system together for my band. We didn't need to supply the PA on every gig, but enough to see what gear was out there. I went to Guitar Center (a few years ago) and critically listened to every dual 15 horn cabinet they had, including JBL,Yamaha,Peavey, and Harbinger. I brought a large listening library from Dave Grusin to Metal to Hip Hop. There was a much more "natural" sound with this B-52 LX-1515V3 model, I couldn't believe it. It was worth taking the extra time and scrutiny in the buying process, rather than simply buying via brand name. For 4 years I ran them with a crown XTI 2000, over a set of double 18 subs. The construction on the Version 3 series makes it easy to roll around and lift when needed. Hearing is believing folks. Ive recently doubled all components , and have 4 of the B-52 LX1515V3's and couldn't be happier.Specs are great, down to 40 hertz up tp 19k. 1000 watts.
I recommend this cabinet with or without subs added, They just sound great!!
