Fifteen years after the original release of the 20/20 Studio monitor, Event brings you a new generation of clarity, transparency and definition with the release of the 20/20BAS. The Event 20/20BAS Active Studio monitor incorporate several fundamental enhancements over the original 20/20 while retaining its powerful performance and character.
Event 20/20BAS Active Studio Monitor Features
- Class AB Amplification; 250 Watts
- 7.1 inch Low Frequency Driver; 1 inch Silk Dome Tweeter
- 35Hz-20kHz Frequency Response
- 2300Hz Crossover Frequency
- Balanced XLR and Unbalanced RCA Inputs
- Ferrite Magnet In Low and High Frequency Driver
- Front Port Low Frequency Vents
The original transducer design and cabinet volume have been maintained, however the high and low frequency amplifiers, cabinet bracing and overall construction have been revolutionised to improve audio characteristics, increase dynamics and extend reliability.
Event's engineering team used ideas and technologies from its flagship Opal speaker in the 20/20BAS Active Speakers in order to achieve performance in keeping with the company design philosophy of high output, low distortion and excellent dynamics.
We were very respectful to the original 20/20 speaker… Everyone in Event's
design department has great respect for the speaker, but we saw a few areas
where we could use technologies developed for Opal to get even better dynamics
with lower distortion. The new low frequency amp can deliver up to 250w of peak
power into the woofer. This gives you the BOOM... the definition in the bottom end
that you're looking for." - Marcelo Vercelli (Event Director of Engineering)
Fully discrete Class AB amplifiers for the tweeter and woofer provide up to 250 watts of burst power to the 20/20BAS Active monitor with less than .01% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). This more than doubles the power provided by the original 20/20BAS amplifier design with less than half the distortion. Sustained high output performance is ensured through a new oversized toroidal power supply that can ensure sustained extreme low frequency reproduction.
Hindsight is 20/20!
First released in 1995, the original Event 20/20 nearfield studio monitor was universally acclaimed and launched the Event brand worldwide. Using manufacturing processes and materials unheard of at the time, the 20/20 combined a magnetically shielded 25mm natural silk dome with an 8 inch mineral-impregnated polypropylene cone. A laminated and internally dampened MDF cabinet with a front-mounted large diameter bass port assisted in providing the 20/20's impressive low end response. The Event 20/20BAS adds even more to this tried and true design.
