Product Description

Behringer packed 75-Watts of bi-amped technology (including a time- and phase-corrected active crossover) into every B1030A, ensuring that you have the enormous power reserves you’ll need to drive them really hard.

TRUTH monitors come equipped to function in a wide variety of situations. Switches are provided to adapt the monitor’s low- and high-frequency characteristics for optimal performance specific to your listening environment. Connect B1030A loudspeakers to your computer, mp3 player or television receiver for amazing sonic performance.

Behringer B1030A Features:

  • Ultra-linear studio monitor with true active design
  • Precision Class A/B amplifiers with active protection circuits: 50 W for LF / 25 W for HF
  • Ultra-high resolution, ferrofluid-cooled 1 inch dome tweeter for ultimate sound reproduction
  • Long-throw 5.25 inch woofer with deformation-resistant Kevlar cone for ultimate bass response
  • Ultimate dispersion characteristics and extremely large sweet spot owing to advanced wave guide technology
  • High-precision crossover network with 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters
  • Adjustable to a wide range of acoustic conditions
  • Separately controlled limiter for low and high frequency overload protection
  • Magnetic shielding allows placement near computer monitors
  • Planet Earth power supply for maximum flexibility (100 - 240 V~), noise-free audio, superior transient response plus low power consumption for energy saving
  • Servo-balanced inputs with XLR, 1/4 inch and unbalanced RCA connectors
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
Why Kevlar?
Glad you asked. Kevlar has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio — that’s one reason it’s used in bulletproof vests. Kevlar gives our LF transducer the strength to handle the extremely high energy levels required for distortion-free, chest-pounding bass. And since they have such low mass, Kevlar speaker cones also respond much more quickly than those made of paper, important for not only maintaining bass content integrity, but critical for midrange accuracy and defi nition. Kevlar transducers reproduce even the subtlest nuance of the low-frequency realm without muddying the midrange.

Power to the People
It takes quite a bit more than just a bulletproof woofer and a high-tech tweeter stuck inside a fancy box to make a studio monitor of this class. It also takes power — and lots of it! But even more importantly, that power has to be matched to the individual high- and low-frequency transducers. Behringer builds every single component from the ground up.

Click to Enlarge Designed to Work in Your Environment
Placement is critical. Ideally, all loudspeakers should be placed away from walls to ensure proper bass response. But fear not, B1030A monitors feature Room Compensation switches so you can place them against walls, or even in corners. Walls tend to enhance lowfrequency 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. 

Non-fatiguing, Wide Sweet Spot 
Behringer's 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 — a pretty important consideration for those all-night mixdown sessions that can really test your nerves.

What’s Up with the RCA Connectors?
Yes, it is a bit unconventional to put RCA sockets on a studio monitor — but why not? Now you can connect B1030A loudspeakers to your computer, mp3 player or television receiver for amazing sonic performance. For a truly versatile setup, use one of our USB audio interfaces (the UCA222, for example) to connect to/from your computer. This convenient setup allows you to monitor your recording projects, and mix and master them, directly from your computer. And you can place these speakers right next to your video monitor, thanks to B1030A’s internal magnetic shielding.

Hearing is Believing
We could bore you to tears with all the technical jargon (if you really like that stuff , there’s a special treat at the end), but hearing the TRUTH will make you a believer. From the bulletproof bass of its Kevlar woofer to the silky top-end of its HF dome tweeter, we think you’ll agree that nothing in this class outperforms the B1030A.

Perfect near and mid field

What is your opinion of this product?
I would like to give it 4.5 stars, just because I set them up in two corners of the room (worst place you can put your mixing monitors), and the Room Compensation Switches didn't do miracles. They did work to a degree, but I really had to move them away and add a bass trap, etc. The sound it delivers is PERFECT, though, and after all that is what counts, right? I don't know what exactly is going on here, but I'm talking about clear highs, and the lows are coming from the stomach, no ear fatigue, no harshness, no nonsense, all for what? $299 a pair? Get one!

Great Studio Monitors
Yes, I thought these monitors are robust, and the kevlar cones feel like they could virtually last forever.
The best features to my opinion, are the extensive adjustment and room compensation options, along with the several connection options. (the peak protection feature is nice to have also)
pretty much Plug and Play. Assuming people getting studio monitors know what they're doing, the room compensation adjustment should be pretty intuitive.
Flat! as a monitor should be ;) Adding a sub might be a good idea.
So far, so good! (have them for about a month, now) Time will tell, even though they seem built to last.
Your general opinion of this product.
Very happy, so far.

Most Bang For The Buck!
While some Behringer products do seem a bit 'weak' on the durabilty end of things, these bad boys are very solid. If your studio monitors are taking a beating, then something is wrong to start with...but these could probably handle it.
From my experience with comparible class moniters, you would be hard pressed to find better sound, quality and features for the price. One thing I would like is a frontside headphone jack, but definitely not a deal breaker.
Pretty much plug in and play. They could offer a little more info for dialing in the Room Compensation for your specific needs, but if you have any clue about what you are doing, then it shouldn't be much of a problem getting everything set right.
The sound is great, and plenty of power. If you are planning on using these mainly for purposes other than mixing, then definitely want to EQ them a bit.
Only had these for 1.5 months, so far no issues and I don't expect any.
Your general opinion of this product.
Again, no better bang for the buck. If you are using these for mixing a specific limited genre, such as hip hop, club and the like, then there are better options out there, but for an all around great sound for mixing...these will do the job nicely.

Listening to the music.
Seem well made,but I still would not want to drop them.
Multiple connections is nice.
Quite easy. looked over the manual for do's and don't's.
Very flat until you eq,but that's the design. My Ears are happy.
The test of time has just begun.
Your general opinion of this product.
Very flat sounding until you eq,but that's ok.I've had them for only a few weeks and mixed a dozen or so songs and the out come was pretty good. Price was the motivation for these,funds are limited. I am happy with them. the only thing I would like is more power,but that's ok. My ears are happy. I've heard better, but on a budget their a good buy.

First studio monitors.
Built well. The only problem i have at the moment is i seem to get a constant hum/buzzing when theyre idol and it picks up interference when im running my DAW or browsing the internet. This could however be my own problem of being in a bad room or picking up interference from something else in my house. Planning to get a hum eliminator for these to see if that fixes it.
They are very solid and well built. I was surprised how heavy they were and they look awesome too.
Plug and play if you know what your doing they hook right up to your audio interface or computer.
The tone sounds a little flat if they are quiet but you only have to turn them up a little bit to get a clear sound. Overall i think these were the best choice for the price range. Some other brands will charge you the same price for only one monitor.
Well i have only had them for a few weeks but so far they are great aside from the hum which will be fixed soon.
Your general opinion of this product.
So far they are great. I usually record and play in headphones but its nice having the option to bust these bad boys on when i need to for mixing.

Best of the cheap
Workmanship is very high. No cheap plastic.
Pure sound. Suitable for close listening on your computer's music collection and above all a movies.
Plug en Play. It could not be easier
Clean and reliable. Even the poor mp3 could pull out the maximum.
Speaker or headphones must be warm when they were new. After several weeks, sound is much better.
Your general opinion of this product.
I'm excited.
