The TRUTH B2030A has all of the great features of an active TRUTH monitor packed in a compact cabinet! It's a high-resolution, active 2-way reference studio monitor that is perfect for near-field monitoring applications: from small mixing environments to multi-channel surround setups. Despite its small size, the TRUTH B2030A can achieve a peak output level in excess of 113 dB SPL. Powered by separate 80 and 35 watt built-in amplifiers with an active crossover, this monitor provides ultra-linear frequency response from 50 Hz to 21 kHz. A long-throw 6-3/4" woofer with a special polypropylene diaphragm delivers smooth, deep bass, while an extremely high-resolution HF driver delivers highs that are crystal-clear and full of detail. The unique BEHRINGER wave guide and the extremely low-distortion crossover network produce an absolutely linear phase response with excellent sound dispersion and stereo imaging. The B2030A is equipped with servo-balanced inputs on XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors to handle a variety of audio sources. Thanks to its compact size and magnetic shielding, the TRUTH B2030A can be placed near video monitors, computer displays, or digital audio workstations. The B2030A is delivered with individual measurement diagram.
We Call it a Speaker Graduation DiplomaAfter final assembly, each B2030A spends up to a half hour with a Calibration Engineer being meticulously tweaked to ensure ultra-linear frequency response. When you buy a TRUTH B2030A monitor, you're truly getting a hand-calibrated unit. We ship a calibration certificate with each B2030A that shows the actual frequency response of your monitor, as tested at the time of manufacture. After all these rigorous tests, only then is the speaker granted its own Graduation Diploma.
Rock-Solid BassBookshelf-style home stereo speakers can really fool you when it comes to bass output, mainly because they are not designed for critical listening applications. That’s why recording engineers and producers listen to projects through studio reference monitors or studio-grade headphones. The B2030A’s long-throw 6.75" polypropylene-diaphragm woofer delivers smooth, deep bass all the way down to 50 Hz. Bass content that isn’t exaggerated, as it can be in home speaker systems. Rock-solid bass that is an honest representation of the recorded sound, full of subtle nuance; the sound of fingers on the strings, or the rush of air through the long pipes of a cathedral organ, etc.
Why the Polypropylene Woofer?We're glad you asked. Polypropylene is light and strong, enabling the speaker cone to respond very quickly to fast transient peaks. This low-mass cone material is also much stiffer than paper, important for not only maintaining bass content integrity, but critical for midrange accuracy and definition. The deformation-resistant aluminum die-cast chassis maintains suspension integrity and provides highly efficient voice-coil cooling, even under extreme operating conditions.
Non-Fatiguing, Wide “Sweet Spot”B2030A's HF (High Frequency) content comes courtesy of an ultra high-resolution 0.75" ferrofluid-cooled tweeter mounted on our proprietary wave-guide. While some of our competitor's studio monitors have a highly focused "sweet spot" (the optimal listening position for a pair of loudspeakers), our wave-guide is designed to create a much more generous, broader listening zone. That means you won’t wear a hole in the carpet in that one spot where everything sounds great. You are free to move around inside the stereo image to find the ideal spot in the mix for subtle instrument or effects placement opportunities. You also won't suffer the ravages of "monitor fatigue-syndrome," an ailment that comes from listening to harsh high-mids and treble content for hours on end, even during those all-night mix-down sessions that can really test your nerves.
Expect the BestWe packed 115 watts of bi-amped technology (including a time- and phase-optimized active crossover) into every B2030A, ensuring that you have the enormous power reserves you'll need to drive them really hard. The unique Behringer wave-guide and the extremely low-distortion crossover network produce an absolutely linear frequency response with excellent sound dispersion and stereo imaging.
Suited for All PlacementsIdeally, all loudspeakers should be placed away from walls to ensure proper bass response. But fear not, B2030A monitors feature Room Compensation switches so you can place them against walls, or even in corners. Walls tend to enhance low-frequency content, and corners exaggerate bass even more, but your TRUTH monitor can be custom-tailored to provide honest bass response for your situation, with the simple flick of a switch or two.
XLR and 1/4" InputsThe B2030A is equipped with servo-balanced inputs on XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors to handle a variety of audio sources. Thanks to its compact size and magnetic shielding, the TRUTH B2030A can be placed near video monitors, computer displays or digital audio workstations.
