Event TR6 Reference Studio Monitors

Event TR6 Biamped Tuned Reference Studio Monitors
Event calls these new speakers Tuned Reference because their frequency response is specially tuned to provide superbly accurate monitoring - so you can be sure your mixes will translate properly to other playback systems. The TR6 features a 25mm soft dome neodymium tweeter and a carefully designed, magnetically shielded 6.5 in. mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a big, 1-1/2 in. diameter voice coil. The TR6 is powered by two 50-watt power amplifiers. These custom components are coupled with a powerful new amplifier that delivers clean, clear, 'mixes-you-can-trust'-monitoring at an unbelievably low price. TR monitors feature XLR, 1/4 in. (TRS) and RCA inputs so they're easy to connect to any studio, and magnetic shielding. Specifications include 45Hz - 20kHz frequency response and dimensions of 8-1/8 x 12-1/2 x 10 inches. Now get busy making great mixes!

Do your mixes suffer from buried vocals, overwhelming bass, screetchy guitars, or other sonic unpleasantries? No doubt your monitors simply aren't giving you an accurate picture of what's going on in your mix. How to make the problems go away? Switch to Event monitors - the monitors famous for their "mixes you can trust" sound. (Just ask the people who have won Grammy awards for mixes they've done on them.)

And now it's easier than ever to make the switch. Introducing the Tuned Reference Biamplified Direct Field Monitor System. The name tells the whole story: These monitors are precision tuned to provide flat frequency response and uncolored sound, giving you a true sonic reference for mixing. So when you mix on a Tuned Reference monitor, you know your mixes will translate accurately to other playback systems. (Which is, after all, the whole point.)

You might think that this level of mix precision comes at a high price. But thanks to a powerful new ultra-efficient amplifier (actually two of them, since these are biamplified systems), Event is able to bring you high definition, non-fatiguing monitoring at prices so low they're downright silly. But don't let the cost fool you: The TR series monitors are filled with time-tested Event technology, and designed by the same engineering team behind our full line of critically-acclaimed monitors.

So pick up a pair of TR monitors today. Your mixes will thank you.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (77 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "BEST IN CLASS...they get the job done."
Sound: These are the second pair of nearfield monitors I've owned, having previously owned the Yamaha NS10s. The NS10s are way overrated, IMO. It took forever for me to get a balanced mix out of the Yamaha's(and I have FIVE stereo systems to test with, to include one audiophile system). On the other hand, these Event monitors are much more accurate than the Yamahas. Not even in the same league. I know EXACTLY where my mixes need to be in order to get them right. Granted, the bass response is lacking in these 6" monitors, as it does in most monitors this size. But I completely disagree with another reviewer who stated that low frequencies cause woofer flap. ON THE CONTRARY. These monitors have a VERY, VERY TIGHT bass response within their range(no lower than 45hz). Anything lower than that, of course, will not be clear or even present in the mix. If you want to mix dance, hip-hop or other forms of music that require frequencies lower than 45hz, I'd suggest you DON'T get these speakers; or couple them with a subwoofer. The music I work with can typically be rolled off at 60hz without losing much punch, while retaining clarity. So the lack of bass response below 45hz is not an issue with me. In fact, the limiting factor of these speakers at 45hz is PERFECTLY suited to my music. As far as clarity, balance and stereo image these monitors are EXCELLENT and are EASILY on par with monitors costing much more. The music I record and mix is very complex, having instruments all over the audio spectrum, and these monitors are DEAD-ACCURATE. So much so, that I've actually begun doing mastering with them and do so without hesitation. The mid-range response is excellent. You WILL be able to hear every nuance of your vocals and mid-range guitars and synths. So much so, that mixes via these monitors tend to be discouraging at times because of their brutally honest nature. Be prepared to ACTUALLY hear what you've recorded(scary accurate!). Feature: Features are typical for this monitor size. Nothing extraordinary. Ease of Use: These monitors take a little bit of work to "understand" how they function. If you are OK with monitoring in close proximity, then these will do the trick without having to sell the farm. These monitors were designed to be used in very close proximity to one another and to one's ears. I typically monitor using a 2 to 2.5 ft equilateral triangle. That is VERY CLOSE, I know. But at this distance I don't have to crank up the volume and I can hear EVERY nuance of the mix. I roll off at 60hz and whala! It's ALL there to be listened to. If you listen any further out than 3ft you start to miss the sweet spot of these monitors. This mandatory close listening proximity may not be for everyone. Some folks like to sit back 4-6 feet(or more) and crank it up during their mixing sessions. HOWEVER, please keep in mind that unless you have a very well-tuned room you WILL bring the room nodes into the listening experience and they WILL color your mix. This is where most people go wrong. They buy these Event monitors and expect them to FILL the room with sound. That is NOT what these units were designed to do. If you understand their purpose and work within those parameters/limitations you WILL get EXCELLENT mixes; GUARANTEED. Quality: Excellent build. Solid and tight package. Value: For the money, these are THE BEST speakers in the 6" class. No doubt about that. Have listened to a lot of them but the clarity of these Events cannot be surpassed. I have nothing but praises for these monitors. I've thought several times of "ugrading" to 8" units but each time I decided it wasn't worth it; and money was not an issue. It's a matter of being content with what you have. Why fix what's not broken?! Manufacturer Support: Only used them once and they were very good. The Wow Factor: The "sex appeal" is not very high on these because they require a certain amount of discipline that not everyone has, or is willing to put forth. Again, these are NOT for blasting and filling a room with sound, and for that reason alone many will be turned off by them. Overall: I can't give these a ten because they are not perfect. But they are certainly professional level units that, with the proper discipline, can yield professional mixes/masters.

"The Tr-6's do the Trick if you want a tight mix."
Sound: I feel the Tr-6 has great bass and is capable of producing quality mixes. However the highs are a little more exaggerated than when you hear the mix on different equipment. Feature: I like the multiple input options and that you can use them to pass through to a recording device for some analog recording. Quality: they seem to be solid. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to use the support and hopefully don't have to. The Wow Factor: After hearing these compared to the Alesis MKII, MAudio Bx5, Samson 65A, Behringer 8's I thought they seemed to be alot better sounding. Overall: I think I would keep these even if I got a larger more expensive set of monitors.
