Our TRUTH B2030A monitors have been so wildly successful, that we’ve sold thousands upon thousands of them to some of the most critical ears on the planet. Due to their high resolution performance, B2030A active 2-way reference studio monitors are perfect for near-field monitoring applications – from small mixing environments to multichannel surround setups. When it comes to your studio recordings, you want honesty. In fact, considering how important your art is, you should demand it! That’s why we designed the B2030A Active 2-Way Reference Monitor to speak nothing but the TRUTH. The B2030A boasts big power, 125 Watts of bi-amplified output to an ultra-responsive, long-throw 6.75" polypropylene woofer, which provides tight and accurate bass – and a high-resolution, ferrofluid cooled tweeter for crystal-clear highs. And although it was designed for the studio, where every note you play or sing is always “under the microscope”, the B2030A makes an absolutely fantastic addition to your stereo or video surround system!

Bi-Amplification - The Path to Absolute Signal Integrity

With its 125 ultra-clean Watts of output through separately-powered drivers, courtesy of true bi-amping (2 amplifiers per speaker system), the B2030A delivers high-resolution sound that really brings out the best in your music. While some of our competitors apply simple passive crossovers, which inaccurately separate the frequency spectrum and degrade driver performance, BEHRINGER has gone the extra mile – driving each woofer and tweeter with a separate amplifier for the utmost in signal integrity.

Custom-Engineered Transducers

Powerful amplifiers coupled with state-of-the-art technology sure sounds impressive – but what about the part of the system you actually hear? Our LF (Low Frequency) and HF (High Frequency) transducers are designed specifically for each application – it’s what sets us apart from the competition. When you buy a TRUTH B2030A active monitor, you can rest assured the transducers inside have been engineered to perform flawlessly with every other element for truly professional results. As a result, the B2030A provides ruler-fl at frequency response from 50 Hz - 21 kHz, with tight and accurate low end, articulately-detailed mids and crystal-clear highs.

Gloriously-Wide “Sweet Spot”

The B2030A’s HF (High Frequency) content comes courtesy of an ultra-high resolution 1.0" 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 are free to move around inside the stereo image to find the ideal spot in the mix for subtle instrument or effects placement opportunities.

Suited for All Placements

The ideal environment for listening is a room that is “fl at,” neither too reflective (echoes) nor too absorptive (where the sound is muffled). But since all rooms are not the same acoustically, all TRUTH monitors come equipped to function in a wide variety of environments. Rear panel filter switches are provided to adapt the monitor’s low- and high-frequency characteristics for optimal performance – specifically for your listening environment.

Monitor placement is also critical. Ideally, all loudspeakers should be placed away from walls to ensure proper bass response. The B2030A features a set of Room Compensation switches so you can place it against walls, or even in corners. Walls tend to enhance low-frequency content, and corners exaggerate bass even more, but your B2030A TRUTH can be custom-tailored to provide honest bass response for your situation, with the simple flick of a switch or two.

Ready for Your Input

The B2030A is equipped with servo-balanced inputs on XLR and ¼" 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.

Hearing is Believing

We will skip all all the technical jargon, but hearing the TRUTH will make you a believer. Thanks to its state-of-the-art wave guide technology, custom-designed LF and HF transducers, 125-Watt bi-amplified output and more, the TRUTH B2030A outperforms everything in its class. Compare the B2030A to the competition and finally, hear the TRUTH!

Reviews from the Press

We tested the TRUTHs with a variety of music to see if they really do offer as flat a frequency curve as BEHRINGER promises. Ng off with Morrissey’s You Are the Quarry, we noticed a clear, punchy attack, especially in the midrange. […]

If you are on a very tight budget, then the B2030As offer very good value and they can be made to perform perfectly adequately in smaller rooms, provided that you take due care with their placement and experiment with the EQ switch settings.

I think that the designers have used their available manufacturing budget extremely well in producing a useful and good-looking monitor at such a low UK price point […].

Verdict

You generally get what you pay for when it comes to monitors, but these new monitors do seem to offer just a little bit more than you’d expect for the price.
