Fluid Audio Image 2 3-Way Studio Reference Monitor

No longer available at zZounds
Powerful and precise, the Image 2 features dual side-firing 8" woofers, a 5" midrange driver, and an AMT ribbon tweeter that can be placed on top or bottom.

Fluid Audio Image 2 is a dedicated nearfield/midfield workhorse. Using built-in DSP and Class-D amplification, Fluid Audio has pushed the limits to create stunning results. The Image 2 delivers accurate imaging, extremely flat frequency response, and incredible bass extension with very low distortion.

With support for Sonarworks SoundID Reference calibration import, the room calibration software will be integrated directly into Image 2 studio monitors.
Giving users the ability to create their own calibration profile for their monitor setups to remove unwanted coloration and experience the most accurate studio reference sound for any studio or home environment.

The Image 2 is also a two-in-one monitor: A full range mixing and mastering system that can switch into cubemix mode at the press of a footswitch. Cubemix mode enables engineers to dial-in low end and midrange levels for even playback on many "bass challenged" devices. It further helps with the adjustment of vocals, nailing the kickdrums and overall balance.

Its future-ready USB port expands the Image 2's incredible functionality and provides the ability to upload and run exported room correction files natively at the monitor level, as well switching between profiles (Image 2 supports loading of 4 different SoundID Reference profiles) and cubemix mode.

The newly developed AMT tweeter delivers precise, detailed response, expansive headroom, and low distortion, while the aluminum cone mid-range driver utilizes a shorting read more ring within its motor structure to substantially reduce harmonic distortion. Focusing the magnetic flux and concentrating it within the voice coil gap reduces modulation movement of the voice coil which makes the variation of system inductances more linear as input current varies. The end result is accuracy so clean; mixing takes on a whole new flow.

The opposed, Dual 8" ultra-long-throw bass woofers are interlocked at their magnets from within and add improved cabinet stability and provide extended bass response (+/- 4.6dB 28Hz-20kHz; +/- 2.0dB 80Hz-20kHz). Each bass driver is individually powered by the latest state of the art 225W Class-D amplifier.

Driving the entire system is the newly developed Class-D Quad amplifier. Spending the most development time on this important element, the Image 2 amp has extremely low self-noise, very low distortion, improved THD+N performance, improved IMD performance, and lower output impedance. The Image 2's sealed enclosure design provides a natural, 6db/oct roll off for a more controlled low frequency response.

This translates into less likelihood of unwanted interaction with the room, which means these monitors are less sensitive to positioning.

Mixing or mastering on the Image 2 will deliver professional results that are more accurate, and more effortlessly achieved than ever before.
