B52 Pro Audio – Matrix 1500



The MATRIX-1500 is the third generation of the popular MATRIX-1000 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-1500 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 1200 watt three-channel amplifier. A 700-watt Class-G amplifier drives the heavy-duty 15” Celestion® subwoofer, while a 2-channel Class-AB amp sends 250 watts to each of the full range satellite speakers. Each satellite features a Celestion® 10” 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

The MATRIX-1500 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 transforms the system from a flat response to thundering lows and soaring highs. The LF contour and HF process adjustments allow you to fine-tune the sound to the venue and to your sound preference. Like all MATRIX systems, the MATRIX-1500 is designed for easy setup and operation. To set-up, the system simply connects the XLR right and left signal cables, speaker cables, and power cord and you’re ready to perform! The MATRIX-1500 is proudly designed, built, and tested in our state of the art Los Angeles manufacturing facility.
