Event TR8XL Monitors

In the few short months since their release in September, 2002, Event's Tuned Reference Biamplified Direct Field Monitors have taken the MI market by storm, offering vast legions of recording musicians access to true world-class reference monitoring at an incredibly affordable price. Now, in order to serve those musicians whose monitoring environments require reproducing high volume levels (or who just like to crank their monitors to "11"), Event has introduced the Tuned Reference 8XL. The 8XL model uses the same driver components as in the original TR8 system, but features a powerful new amplifier that delivers a full 150 watts (100 woofer/50 tweeter) to each speaker. The XL also incorporates a high-performance torroid power transformer, which gives the new model superior electrical and mechanical noise characteristics. The end result is a high-powered professional reference monitor that continues Event's long-standing tradition of providing "mixes you can trust" monitoring.

The name Tuned Reference comes from the monitors being precision tuned to provide flat frequency response and uncolored sound, thereby giving the user a true sonic reference for mixing. The design ensures that mixes created on a Tuned Reference monitor will translate accurately to other playback systems. What's the significance of the "XL" designation? It's for Xtra Loud!

"Pretty darn good!"
Sound: Not as good as an HR824 (my main pair as well) but I can't think of anything in the same price range that sounds anywhere near as good as these do. I have a very clear idea of what is going on in a mix listening to these monitors. I have no problems doing good mixes on them whatsoever. Feature: n/a Manufacturer Support: Don't know The Wow Factor: They look great, and they sound better than any monitor I can think of for the price.
Style of Music: Electronic

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Event Monitors Kick!"
Sound: These sound wonderful. Music that I have mixed on them sounds great on a variety of other speakers and systems. Feature: They can get loud and still sound good. Nice tight bass. I think an 8" low frequency driver is a necessity for most top 40 type music (rock, rap, pop, country, etc). Lacks compensation switches, but I think this can be a benefit. If you set compensation switches improperly, you will end up with poor mixes. Quality: Solid build quality. Nice finish, looks like and is pro gear. Drivers same as those used in the more costly Event Model 20/20. Value: There are many choices for monitors in this price range. The features, price and sound represent a much better than average value! The Wow Factor: I learned the hard way that if you are mixing music without studio monitors, you are going to have a difficult time getting a good mix. I never believed it was necessary to spend so much money for such small speakers, BUT I WAS WRONG. These are great investment and make it much, much easier to mix. Overall: I don't expect to replace these for many, many years. I decided to purchase a product that was from a reputable company and had the features I felt were important (8" LF driver, ample power, respected sound) so that I wouldn't have to upgrade in a few years. These monitors exceed my needs and expectations.
