This thread is probably too old to get a response, but...
I have 3 of these F1220As in a fixed stage setup, and after a recent power blackout, all 3 were blowing fuses. (They were switched off, even.) I found the main power amp, an ST TDA7293, had "leaked its guts"... again, in all 3. After those were replaced, they all worked.
BUT, they now have a healthy "thump" when powered off. Anyone have any ideas about this? There is a Mute and Standby function in the TDA7293, but it looks like the design follows ST's suggestion. Maybe a diode popped too?

The speakers impedance might be too low for the amp.

maybe the voltage setting is wrong. check to make sure it matches your home voltage setting.
maybe try a 10amp fuse, but have a fire extinguisher handy ;)

How do i connect eurolive vs1220f?

I'm sorry if this isn't going to be as helpful as we would both prefer but it will explain your problem if nothing else. I have managed to find a manual for this kit here:-
and unfortunately it says:
"Using 1/4" TS speaker cables, lug the power amp output into the 1/4" input on the back of the speaker. DO NOT use the instrument cables(i.e., guitar cords) for this connection!"
This has made things clear to me anyway. This is just a speaker and has no other circuitry, because of this you must have an amplifier of some sort between your guitar and this speaker in order to hear anything. As long as the speaker is plugged into the mains supply, and a suitable amplifier there is no need for an on/off switch, everything is controlled from the amplifier.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Why does the fuse keep blowing?

Hmmmmm. Are we talking about your internal or external fuses; Do they blow at the moment you put power on it, and what about the switch of the used voltage ?.... And was it straight away , since when you bought them; Then just send them back, Second hand?, too bad, you're ripped off .

Bass went out

The 15 inch woofer is blown and you are hearing only the tweeter horn. I would definitely check that speaker on something else though, because the amps inside will also blow fairly easy, and you can't get parts for these. I would salvage what you can and move on. If both speakers work alone, check connections and amp. If you find that the 15 does work, then make an unpowered monitor. Behringer does not give any referencing of any parts. They have all special part numbers that you can't crossreference to find replacements. This is a marketing strategy to eliminate others from repairing, so you will buy another one. They think they would sell more but it just turns musicians away from their junk. The only piece of behringer equipment worth using is the FCB1010 controller and nothing else.

You should check the woofer's impedance as a starting point, let me know further.

I bought a Behringer Eurolive B1220 Pro speaker with my PA system brand new and it sounded great at first. Now it sounds really muddy (the other 2 speakers I bought work fine) almost as if the horn has...

Bad've blown the tweeters. Overdriving the mixer/amp creates distortion on the amplifier which heats up the speaker voice coils and eventually causes damage. Because of their small diameter voice coil windings the tweeters fail first (opens up like a fuse element does) followed by the woofer making a scraping sound (deformed voice coil) or not working as well. Warranty service because you blew out the tweeters? Don't get your hopes up.

1. PLEASE use enough power for the venue that you have. A high powered system will run all night at 10:00 (physical volume knob setting) than an underpowered system set for 2:00.

2. Get speakers off the ground and closer to your audience's ears. Audio from speakers on the floor must battle surfaces that actually absorb some of the sound....carpet, drapes, etc. And besides, legs can't hear that well.

B300 speaker blowing mains fuse as soon as power applied

The power transformers in these and some other behringer speakers have a habit of short circuiting.
Good luck trying to get any details from behringer about spares or tech info..they act like they have something to hide...and maybe they do ;).
You can unscrew the amplifier part from the speaker and disconnect all leads except those 2 going to the power transformer..if it still blows the fuse then the transformer is history.

I have a set of Behringer B215 passive eurolive speakers rated at 600watts. Both speakers are not working but there is limited sound coming from the horn. I don't think its the speaker but more so...

Check the DC resistance of the speakers. I should not be over 10 ohms. If it is something, probably the speakers are blown.

That 600 Watts is peak and you should use an amp of say 300 Watts a side max to drive this for safety.

You may find a fuse inside, but not likely you would be so lucky... Also if the amplifier failed it could have sent DC current through the units and fried the voice coils of the woofers. The horns often have capacitive coupling and usually will survive.

You can fiond 15 inch replacement speakers on Ebay... HOWEVER get the dimensions as they often vary and may not fit.
