Product Description

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 nearfield 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 75- and 35-Watt built-in amplifiers with an active crossover, these monitors provide ultra-linear frequency response from 50 Hz to 21 kHz.

A long-throw 6 3/4 inch 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 inch TRS connectors to handle a variety of audio sources. Thanks to its compact size and magnetic shielding, the TRUTH B2130A can be placed near video monitors, computer displays or digital audio workstations. The B2030As are delivered along with individual measurement diagrams.

Nice Punchy Sound, Good Price, Pretty Compact

Your general opinion of this product.
All behringer monitors come sonically matched so that you get 2 speakers with the same tones and range (because every speaker is not built exactly the same). I use these with the auralex speaker monitor base pads and it definately improves the performance of the speakers.

Your general opinion of this product.
Unbelievably accurate sound from such an affordable speaker. The low clean bass was the most surprising, I'm still amazed. The day I placed the order the bigger models were out of stock and I really wanted some monitors badly so I ordered these. Boy am I glad I didn't bother with the slightly bigger ones, it would have been overkill.

Very Impressive
Your general opinion of this product.


STYLE:
Classical, Blues, Jazz, ect...

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
20 years

OVERALL:
I just purchased a pair of these about a week ago, received them yesterday and hooked them up after taking my JBL 4208's down. I am very impressed with these. I have worked quite a bit with the Genelec and Tannoy's and these monitors R definitely in their league of reference monitoring. Very natural. I have also heard several different Mackie models and have not been even nearly as impressed with those as the Genelec, Tannoy's or these Behringer's. I've only heard one set of Mackies that I liked and they R way over priced. The Genelec and Tannoy's R excellent as well but I can't get past the price of the Behringers b2030A's or the B2031A's. These sound every bit as good as the others and the price is much more friendly. They R also built very well and look like they could last quite a while. They got a little weight 2 them. I hope that Behringer keeps

Truth about
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Like a tank.

FEATURES:
Love the room controls on the back panel.

EASE OF USE:
Very easy.

VALUE:
Worth every penny. Behringer needs a little "truth" check on their claims but for only 279 bucks, who cares?

SOUND:
Behringer claims these monitors reproduce every frequency accurately. This is false. You will have to buy an additional sub costing about 300 bucks as these monitors do not reproduce frequencies below 100 hz. So if you buy these go ahead and order the M audio floor sub with them or you will hate yourself.

STYLE:
Metal, Hardrock, Rock

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
12 Years

OVERALL:
This product works excellent for mids and highs! I just wish they were advertised as such.

But wait Captain Value!
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
These things are built like a tank. You'll be able to tell that by the sheer weight of just one of them

FEATURES:
Several features make these an excellent value. There are several db switches and frequency roll offs to suit the size of your room

EASE OF USE:
If you don't need a helmet and a drool bucket these are in fact easy to operate.

VALUE:
$279? Its worth a shot for that. These work well *if* accessorized properly. *see "sound"

SOUND:
First and foremost for all of you self contained digital multitrack recorder owners, (i.e, Boss, Zoom, Korg, Some early Rolands). If your recorder does not have an independent monitor out volume control, you WILL have to purchase one. Although these speakers have volume knobs on the back, they do not lower the volume to a reasonable enough level. These put out approx. 101db using my spl meter at a distance of 4.5 feet (optimum nearfield) at their very lowes

FEATURES:
More than enough.

EASE OF USE:

VALUE:
Eccellent.

STYLE:
anything but country

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
drummer in a hard rock band years ago, played 1st trumpet in a high school band at age 12

OVERALL:
These are the most accurate speakers I have ever had. I have heard better, but I could never afford them. For the money these are stunningly accurate. I can hear everything I want to hear. By that I mean if I listen for something, it is there, and and if it isn't there, I can be sure that it wasn't recorded. Bass lines that are all over the place are balanced and tight. Mids are a chore to balance with a nearfield setup on my desk, but when I got the EQ right they were as close to perfect as I need. (I've heard Quads that were better, but this is a whole different animal here.) Highs are airy, not exactly light but true to the sour
