Matrix-2500
1600-watt Active Speaker System:
18" Subwoofer and 2x12" Two-Way Satellites
BBE® SONIC MAXIMIZER BUILT-IN

The new B-52 Matrix-2500 is a complete sound reinforcement solution consisting of two 12” two-way speakers and an 18” subwoofer, equipped with a built-in 1600-watt, three-channel amplifier ideal for live performance, presentations, playback, DJ’s, schools, and Houses of Worship. 
The MATRIX-2500 brings clarity, power and performance you can hear and feel and is the perfect choice for any portable PA application requiring reliable and outstanding sound quality.  The MATRIX-2500 was designed using advanced acoustic and audio techniques with premium components, comprehensive protection circuitry, and robust construction to provide years of consistent, reliable performance.


Matrix2500

The Matrix-2500 is the second generation of the popular MATRIX-2000 which for nearly a decade has been the choice of mobile entertainers, bands and clubs throughout the world.   The engineering staff at B-52 painstakingly designed the MATRIX-2500 from the ground up over the last three years and literally, every aspect of this system has been improved upon.  More power, proprietary efficient amplifier design with integrated BBE® processing, new Celestion® speaker components, detachable casters, a new ergonomic look are just some of the improvements you’ll find in this new system. 

Powering this beast is a proprietary 1600 watt three-channel amplifier.  A 1000 watt Class-G amplifier drives the heavy duty 18” Celestion® subwoofer with cast frame and 4” voice coil, while a 2-channel Class-AB amp sends 300 watts to each of the full range satellite speaker. Each satellite features a Celestion® 12” loudspeaker and a Celestion®, PETP film compression driver which work in unison to produce accurate midrange and a detailed top end. An elliptical horn provides excellent coverage, on and off axis.

Suggested Applications
Mobile DJ • Karaoke • Nightclub, Restaurant, Bar Installation • Corporate Audio / Video n Home Entertainment System • Live Sound System • Stage Monitoring System • Booth Monitoring System n Drum Monitoring

BBEThe MATRIX-2500 features a built-in BBE® Sonic Maximizer (exclusive to B-52) which has the same familiar controls as the rack version, and with a single push of a button transform the system from a flat response to thundering lows and soaring highs.  The LF contour and HF process adjustments allow you fine tune the sound to the venue and to your sound preference. Like all MATRIX systems, the MATRIX-2500 is designed for easy set up and operation. To set-up the system simply connect the XLR right and left signal cables, speaker cables and power cord and you’re ready to perform! The MATRIX-2500 is proudly designed, built, and tested in our state of the art Los Angeles manufacturing facility.
