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 in. 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 in. 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. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Behringer products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (63 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Truth Active monitors are awesome - and that's the TRUTH!"
Sound: I don't know what that first guy's issues and malfunctions were (his, not the monitors). I auditioned these in an A-B comparison with Mackie's. The Behringers were over 90% as good as the Mackie monitors... for 2/3 less of the price. At $600 a pair these would be a great deal. At $300, they're a steal! The imaging is so precise it's beyond stereo and clean on into 3-D. The bass is also precise, punchy, and there's more headroom that you can stand being in the same room with. Feature: I'm giving it a 9 in the features department. I can't think of anything else I might need or want, but I'm sure there's SOMEthing.. maybe a remote control so you can set levels and such without touching the sound board? One of the big things to remember is that these are sold as matched pairs, and that, as an Active/amplified speaker pair, the amps are designed specifically for these speakers, to match them. That's a whole lot better than finding out your speakers are flat but the amp is coloring the sound. Ease of Use: Out of the box, plug 'em in, they sound awesome. You CAN tweak 'em, but ya don't need to. Quality: Again, a 9. They could have been made of solid hardwood or titanium or something, so they don't get a perfect 10.:) These are studio monitors, and I don't know of ANY such monitor that can go on the road straight out of the box, but they're certainly well built and attractive. The covers come off easily, but are not flimsy. I've had no issue with any of the pairs I've bought so far. (I set up project studios for other people as well.) Value: I'm still not even sure how they manage to make this without going broke. Others sell far lesser monitors for more money. Manufacturer Support: I'm sure there's room for improvement somewhere. Maybe the rep could carry them into my studio and build the custom stands for them, hook up the wires for me? I've never had a problem, so I can't say how their customer service department is. That said, since the very best customer service is to not need them at all, in my experience, they deserve a 10. The Wow Factor: When you hear these things, feel the punch of the kick drums through them, SEE the 3-D imaging in your mind's eye, they become more than just black and sexy. These things are awesome! Overall: If I had $10,000 to spend on monitors, I might find some audiophile speakers to listen to a final mix with, but chances are that I'd have mixed it with these anyway. Fact is, we listen to our music at much higher quality and through better equipment than most of our audience ever will. If they got any more accurate, I'd wonder how they cloned me. Live or Memorex? More like Live or Truth?! You could probably spend more money, but why would you want to spend more and get lesser monitors?

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
